In the spirit of Jeff Foxworthy's You Might be a Redneck -

  • If you have ever turned on a football game and and the orange uniforms of one team caused you to leap up from the sofa and check out, you might be a Moodler.
  • If you type "" in your browser when you intend to type ""
  • If you look up recipes in
  • If you look up recipes in and find them!
  • If you can spell Dougiamas without having to look it up.
  • If you can pronounce Dougiamas without having to look it up.
  • If you check the Moodle forums at 8:30 on a Saturday night.
  • If you find yourself heading to the bugtracker when the dishwasher is broken.
  • If you start seeing double square brackets around words you don't know the translation of.
  • If your neighbours wonder why you named your cats Helen and Howard.
  • Your spouse wants you to take up golf again because they hate being a 'moodle widow(er)' more.
  • You describe the color of something as "Moodle" orange.
  • If you find yourself logging in to during your summer holiday in Italy instead of enjoying the beautiful view or going to the beach. (Hi from Italy, Sigi)
  • If you come all the way from Germany to the US during your summer holiday and in addition to visiting lots of places you must absolutely go to a small town in South Carolina to find out about the latest Moodle tricks
  • You try to figure out how to grade e-mails from your friends without a drop down box
  • You find is down for some reason and the first thing you want to do is post on about it.
  • Every verb you use is 'to moodle'.
  • You go into a Chinese restaurant and ask for a side order of Moodles with your Egg Foo Young.
  • You talk about Moodle so much that your non-Moodling, non-native English speaking husband asks if the noodles on the plate in front of him are moodles and when you ask him if that is what he meant to say he replies, "Yes, aren't they moodles?" (based on a true story)
  • You know that the course id for Using Moodle is 5.
  • And even if you drive a car, you always drive it in 5th gear.
  • You throw away all but the orange M&M's.
  • You eat all but the orange M&M's (and keep it for good feng shui in your desktop).
  • You try to convince your wife and kids that there is a Disney Park in Perth.
  • You only recently discovered that typing an address in your browser takes you to a page outside
  • You sometimes refer to your third child as 1.3
  • Your default response to a rerun on TV is to fire up the laptop and check out
  • If you put little labels on your TV's remote control that say... view.php?id=1, view.php?id=2, etc ...
  • You have five browser windows open right now, four of which are Moodle sites.
  • Reading the forums is part of the morning routine: coffee, newspaper, wake up the children. . .
  • You find yourself adding items to a list that only the Moodle clique will understand.
  • You tell people to "Keep Moodling" and that they have been "Moodlised"
  • If instead of saying Have a good day you begin greeting folks by saying Happy Moodling! and even worse when you actually believe that the two statements mean the same thing. {Based on a true story}
  • If normal words start being morphed into Moodle-isms. For example, when someone asks How are you? you begin to reply with words like Moodle-rrific and Moodle-tastic. Subsequently, you get confused when someone gives you a quizzical look because they do not understand what have just said. {Based on a true story}
  • If your students start showing up to the Friday night football games wanting to know when the Moodle chant is going to begin and students begin painting MOODLE on their chests! {Based on a true story}
  • You are looking forward to Christmas vacation so that you will have time to upgrade Moodle!
  • You read something interesting and your first thought is, "I have to post that at"
  • You forget that the comment you just ignored from a co-worker won't be retrievable later in a Recent Activities block.
  • When in the supermarket, you prefer to buy orange capsicums (peppers) rather than any other colour.
  • If you go to instead of and try some (global) searches there, only realizing after some attempts that you are looking within Moodleland only. {Based on a true story}
