    Hi everyone!

     
    For most of us using ChefTalk is often a love/hate relationship right? We love the site, the community but we HATE the ads. As many sites like ChefTalk are free the ads are a necessary component to helping us keep the site running. So we are asking everyone in the community to take a few minutes to take our personality quiz. This will help us present better, more relevant ads to the community. Onlines communities are comprised of give and take so we are asking all of you to give a few minutes of your time to help ChefTalk out. How does it work, read below...

    Here at ChefTalk, we’re always looking for ways to get to know each member of our community family better. And so, we’ve got an an easy personality quiz for you to take!

     

    Are you a Film Addict, a Tech Guru, or maybe a Comic Book Fanatic? This quiz is simple, fun, and completely anonymous. Answer questions by clicking on an image that best describes you. Once you’ve completed the quiz, it’ll generate your custom profile.

     

    Love your quiz results? Feel free to share your new profile with us here!

     

    Your participation is not only fun and entertaining, but it will also help further our insights into ChefTalk’s members and interests. Our platform partner, Huddler, is working with Wikia.com to continue our work in this area.

     

    Thank you in advance for your participation and have fun!

    Nicko, how does this work anyways? Will it individually change ads or will it change ads according to what the majority gets? Or is it just for data mining and will not change ads unless there are drastic results?

    Done but I can't remember what called me, just that it said I was a true food and drink buff with a great deal of curiosity and an imagination. I'll take it!

    The goal of this survey is to create a map of the community according to their interests. Not knowing all the ins and outs of it I think it is for the whole group. The ad tracking pixels that get fired (on just about every website you visit this day) then use sophisticated algorithms to serve up ads specific to you. So I think the survey gives an overall "lay of the land" for CHefTalk which narrows the ad pool. After that the individual ad servers get more specific to your browsing history.

    I use adblock.

    I get no adds, therefore no need to take a marketing quiz to give more data to companies that already mine data and purchase data through other "terms of service" agreements. 

    I highly recommend adblock to users here. Nice clean page. Sorry Nicko.

    I'm a tech buff...  and they are saying these nasty things about me;

    "Congratulations! Here are your results.

    You're a Tech Buff


    You love your technology, and it loves you back.

    Life is all about having the best tech for you. You want a top of the range experience, whether it comes with a hefty price tag or a hundred hours spent building it yourself. You like to be connected to the web wherever you find yourself in the world and can't get enough of the latest gadget news and rumours.

    You love to explore new things. You're inquisitive and have a really vivid imagination. You really pride yourself on being the first person you know to find out about cool stuff, and when you do make an awesome new discovery no one is going to be able to distract you until you know all about it ��� and we mean ALL about it!"

    HELP !!!
