Who are you?
Why are you doing this?
Ok, yeah. funny. ha. ha. Now really, who are you?
Does your hero costume have those molded rubber nipples like the new Batman?
Ok, you got the costume and the nipples and the superpowers, but do you have a trusty sidekick? Aren't you spozed to have a trusty sidekick?
Someone said something mean to me!
There's already a hero picked for the quest!
How are scores and rank computed?
So this means we make our own scores?
Do you have a shorter domain?
Did you code this yourself?
Cool project. Did it come together well?
I'm having trouble logging in with my account, and the "forgot password" link doesn't do anything
I can't log in! It keeps telling me my username doesn't exist? What's up?
1. Who are you?
I am a hero.
2. Why are you doing this?
I'm a hero (see above). It's a tough job. I'm subcontracting.
Tag! You're it!
Please. How did you get lost so fast?
4. Ok, yeah. funny. ha. ha. Now really, who are you?
Your hero was born in the 70's, and having been exposed to too many smiley faces
as a child, he is hopelessly selfless and easy-going. Years of Medical Experiments
conducted by Secret Agencies of the Government made him a Genius (and he even
has references to back that up). That worked out so well, he eventually fell in Love.
Unfortunately, that didn't work out too well, and he briefly turned to Evil. Those
around him noticed, and after an intervention, he was captured and held in a small
garage and fed ramen until he saw the error of his ways. Now endowed with Genius and super-powers resulting from the overconsumption of rice and dehydrated noodles, he
has turned from the Dark Side, and now uses his powers exclusively for Good (and
to impress Chicks). Hopelessly un-hip and un-cool, he's too busy to notice that they aren't impressed. Fortunately, for the Universe, he knows how to Make Things Better, and has lots of Ideas. Unfortunately for the Universe, he has to operate in "a decidedly unfavorable capital market." And so, out of desperation, he's subcontracting the Hero Gig so he can tackle Other Things and Make The World Better.
5. Does your hero costume have those molded rubber nipples like the new Batman?
Of course. All superheroes had to upgrade. Union rules. Doesn't yours?
6. Ok, you got the costume and the nipples and the superpowers, but do you have a trusty sidekick? Aren't you spozed to have a trusty sidekick?
I'm still not used to the spandex yet, tho.....
7. Someone said something mean to me!
I'm still looking for a trusty sidekick. Someone who's sharp, with a wicked sense of humor, a buncha cool gadgets on a utility belt. Seriously. If you want to get a piece of this site, let me know.
I'm sorry. You'll get over it.
Next time ask a question. Geez.
8. There's already a hero picked for the quest!
Ok, not exactly a question, but we're willing to work with you. The person who posted the quest can pick a hero anytime, and change their chosen hero anytime, so if you have an idea, make the proposal. When they pick your proposal, you get 100 points, the former hero-of-the-moment loses 100 points, and the world is a better place for it.
9. How are scores and rank computed?
You get one "hero point" for each proposal you post in response to someone's Quest. If that person likes your proposal, you become the "hero of the moment" and get 100 points. So, propose, propose, propose, and make them good, because good ones count.
10. So this means we make our own scores?
Remember: Quality. But quantity is a quality too.
Yes; basically. When you post a quest, you have 100 points to award to your favorite hero. Each quest is a zero-sum game - you can only pick one "hero of the moment" - when you pick a new hero, they get 100 points and the old hero loses 100 points. The more quests you post, the more points there are to award. Just remember to come back and pick your hero.
11. Do you have a shorter domain?
Yes. You can get here with www.areyoumyhero.com or www.aymh.com.
12. Did you code this yourself?
In hero school, they told me that things like "rumyhero" made me look stupid.
13. Cool project. Did it come together well?
I had the wonderful people over at Putramedia do the code for me.
Welcome to the new economy. This project is conceived on the east coast of USA, Built in Indonesia, Hosted in Canada, Promoted in the southwest of USA, and saving the ENTIRE PLANET, one hero at a time (that's you, wherever you are).
Absolutely. On-budget, and ten (well, actually, eleven) minutes ahead of schedule. Concept to delivery was just a few months, most of which was deciding to just do it.
14. I'm having trouble logging in with my account, and the "forgot password" link doesn't do anything
It takes good people, and we managed to keep it fun.
Some patch-levels of Microsoft's Internet Explorer are apparently not interacting properly with aymh.com. At this point, an upgrade to IE6 or NS6 is the easiest solution. Please upgrade, and if you still have problems, report them.
15. I can't log in! It keeps telling me my username doesn't exist? What's up?
Again, the problem seems to be related to certain patch levels of IE5. The easiest solution is to upgrade to IE6 or NS6 - you may need to also remove any areyoumyhero.com cookies. Please upgrade, clean up, and report any problems.
Your other alternative is to not use the "Remember Login" option, just use your password-and-form-remembering browser functions. We're still trying to clean this up.
