Formspring was a question-and-answer website launched in 2009. It had some elements of a social network, but mostly focused on having users ask each other questions, with the questions and answers visible on the user's profile page. It is relevant to this wiki for two main reasons:
- It was used by some authors as an easy way to answer fan questions. Authors who used Formspring this way include Tom Siddell (author of Gunnerkrigg Court) or Andrew Hussie (MS Paint Adventures).
- It was used as a medium for roleplaying Play-by-Post Games. Examples include the The Official Unofficial Ouendan EBA Formspring RP, as well as countless fan-made Character Blogs (e.g. there was a fairly vibrant MS Paint Adventures Formspring community roleplaying as various characters.)
In 2013, it was rebranded as Spring.me. By 2015, the domain was acquired by the dating site Twoo; while the users' profiles were transferred into Twoo, the answers are seemingly lost, or at least inaccessible.
