User of the Week #9: Sellyme!

Sellyme is a fanatical Whatpulse user who is essentially in charge on the entire team and thread, as Nabb is lazy. He runs the Whatpulse blog (This!) along with JaumeBG and notverygood and is (apparently) well respected among the Kongpulse community.

Q: How did you think up your name?
A: Well, my initials are "Sel" and that's what most of my friends call me, so I used that. But it wasn't long enough, so I added a "me" at the end. Because I am me. But it STILL wasn't long enough so I added the "ly", reaching the magical 6 character mark grab.com used, and making it roll off the tongue well too. Pretty impressive considering I was 5 at the time I made that account, and most 5 year olds would just make an account called "doodle".

Q: What does it feel like knowing that no matter how much you do for the WP community you'll never become a team mod?
A: It's kind of sucky to tell the truth. I know you're not meant to want to be a moderator, but I can't help but imagine how much easier updating this blog would be if I had all the XML stats, and how much more I could help others from a position of power. Of course, Nabb would never let this happen so we must overthrow him. I mean, uh, we must live with it >.<

Q: Who do you think is your main opposition in the WP rankings?
A: If you asked me this last year, I would have said no-one, as I was at least 5 times faster than everyone else. In February I would have said Sinapi and squall, as in my time off they caught up and started pulsing quicker. Now however, after another load of time off, they have both crafted an impressive lead, and there are almost no people around my current key count who pulse as frequently and as largely as we did. If only...

Q: Why are you awesome?
A: Haven't you looked at the poll results? More than half of voters say they joined WP for that cool sellyme guy. Doesn't that say it all?

Q: Aha! Now you're asking questions! I've waited on you hand and foot for long enough, and now I get my chance to bask in the glorious light of interviewee! How does that feel?
A: Pretty good thanks, because now you're asking questions again. coughidiotcough.

Q: Sunuvabit- I mean, uh, Apart from you, who do you think is the best Kongpulse user?
A: I've got to say it's Sinapi. She pulses gigantic amounts every month, and I could barely keep up with her before I was cut.

Q: What is your main WP goal?
A: To stay in a consistent top 25 position. I've been in the Top 25 on four separate occasions, reaching 21st at one point, only to fall back down after losing internet connection. Only 300k out now though.

Q: Why and when did you join Whatpulse?
A: I saw it in chat one day back in early September, and decided to have a look. I was immediately hooked, and told everyone in every active chat I couls find to join. The team count jumped from 40 to 100 in a day. I then discovered the Kongregate thread on a Google search, posted on the second page of that, and within a week the users were at 150. Today the thread has got nearly 150 pages of posts, and the team has 350 members.

Q: I'm confused here. Who is Sellyme, me or you?
A: I think we both are. I'm confused here too. What's even more confusing is that you have to ask me questions if you are me. Why is that anyway?

Q: I think it's something to do with subconciousness. That craps all messed up. I know the answers, I just can't think of them.
A: Well, if we're the same person, how do I know the answers and you don't?

Q: No idea. Let's ask Jaume, he knows everything.
A: He won't be on for three hours though...

Q: Well, what do we do until then?
A: AHAH! I get the Answers back :P Take that you lying thieving exact duplicate of me!

Q: Well, back on topic, are you ever planning to finish and/or utilize the Kongpulse website?
A: Not really, no. To be entirely honest, I'm planning on finding someone who can code and offloading it onto them. Of course, I'll do all the updates and that (with help from the regs) and I have a few secret ideas, but other than that, I'm probably not going to do anything.

Q: When will it be done?
A: Next Summer.

Q: And what are these secret ideas?
A: Well, one of them is to create a load of flash games designed solely for keyspam. With highscores and everything. But it's not a secret any more! Damn y- uh... me!

Q: Any tips?
A: Yes, but you'll have to tune in every Sunday for my witty and insightful blog posts on how to spam your way to the Top 25!


  1. Wow, that was funny and awesome! I like the things you're going to put in the new Kongpulse website.

    And sellyme for Kongregate WhatPulse team mod!

  2. Sounds like there's some awesome stuff in store! Good luck! ^__^

  3. Problem is Jaume, I can't actually put them in :o We'll work it out somehow though.

    Ing, yeah, isn't there just! But who are you?

  4. I think Inq is Inquisitor911. I guess.

  5. I can't believe you planned offloading all the work to me. But hey, at least we'll have it done this summer.

    Also, random comment on an old, old post.
