TPAM - The Positive Reaction Thread

  1. gamergirl profile image60
    gamergirlposted 8 years ago

    TPAM is a game played on forums (I, for instance, first saw it used on an AOL forum back when I was a freshman in high school.)  It stands for "The Person Above Me" and the rules are simple:

    1.  You must post about the person who most recently responded to the thread at the time you hit 'Post a reply'.

    2.  You must follow all forum rules.  This means keep it clean, keep it positive.  Flamethrowers down, folks!

    3.  If the person who responds to you is the person you posted about last, feel free to post another nice thing about them!

    Since I'm starting this, I will reference Hubpages as a whole.

    Hubpages, you rock and keep me entertained daily!

      For the benefit of those that have just joined Hubpages recently, Gamegirl started this thread some time back. Here is her explanation of how this wonderful game is played:



      I personally think this is a great way to establish and foster closer ties within our extraordinary community of writers.


      Oxymoron sports a classic black and white profile and her hub entitled, "Tashan - The Much Awaited Bollywood Movie" is a good review as well as an introduction to those that have never seen an Indian movie.

      http://hubpages.com/hub/TASHAN

      I hope that everyone here will help to keep this beneficial thread going. Cheers to everyone!

    Gamergirl- I like this idea. It's done on myspace to some degree all the time. Usually there's some kind of question 'do you think the person above you...'

    Anyway, I'll play.

    Misha- has a great way of helping others via his hubs, giving great tips on numerous subjects.

    Oops, I'm guessing not too many people know Peter, so the thread has hit a roadbump.

    I hadn't come across Peter either, so I went and read his article on how to make money on Hubpages.  Very funny!

    Iðunn writes beautiful poetry and brings a creative flair to Hubpages. I like her musings on politics too, and she apparently reads more hubs and provides more feedback on hubs than any other hubber!

    I have been lurking, reading livelonger's articles for a few days, and took the plunge just minutes ago to become a fan! livelonger has a vast array articles with well-researched topics, including health benefits and tips (Aronia - highest anti-oxidant berry), food tips (How to make your own yogurt), social issues (Prejudice Test), and even jokes (Taxi joke) and an I-Ching, step by step guide! Excellent hubs, livelonger!

    I read Karl's profile and was just blown away!

    I reckon if we went our for a coffee one morning we could still be talking at midnight.

    What a fascinating array of interests - the combo of financial literacy with world travel is not that rare, but throw in libertarianism, the history of religions, and the passionate desire to learn anything and everything new, and you have one rare bird! But definitely a bird of my feather.

    If you're ever in Sydney, Karl, I'll buy you that all-day coffee!

      Inspirepub is one of my favorite hubbers because she has the guts to speak out and sometimes say unpopular things that people might not want to hear, but should. She's a great presence on the forums, and she brings a sense of genuineness (if that's even a word) to her contributions, which is a precious commodity in this world indeed.

  48. Inspirepub profile image88
    Inspirepubposted 8 years ago

    Oh my, *blush*. That's something to live up to ... thanks, Hope.

    I love Hope's Hubs on werewolves - especially that part about how to kill them (you shouldn't, they are an endangered species ...)

    Fantastic sense of humor!
