This site is classic and gives definitions of the various online forum personalities. So, who is who on AR15.com? [url]http://www.winternet.com/~mikelr/flame1.html[/url] I am probably Rebel Leader [img]http://www.winternet.com/~mikelr/assets/Rebel.jpg[/img] Rebel Leader has an uncanny ability to upset the settled order of a discussion forum. Other Warriors may be excellent in mano a mano combat, but Rebel Leader's charisma, political instincts and verbal skills enable him to rally a collective assult that can overthrow the Royals and even silence Cyber Sisters. Depending on the issue Rebel Leader uses to advance his attack he may draw allies from almost any of the other Warrior classes, but he can usually count on Loopy in the early stages of the conflict and Sycophant once the revolution is well underway. Once the revolution has succeeded, however, Rebel Leader quickly loses interest in the cause. As is the case with false King-Fu Masters, the bones of soi-disant Rebel Leaders litter the battlefields.

[b]IMBROG[/b] [img]http://www.winternet.com/~mikelr/assets/Target.jpg[/img]
Target is the guy everyone in a forum loves to hate. To some degree he brings this upon himself. For example, he may be a known cheater in a game forum, a conservative among liberals, a Windows guy among Mac enthusiasts, or even a man in a women's forum. Why Target places himself in such dicey situations is anyone's guess, but he seems genuinely oblivious to his precarious position. When Target inevitably runs afoul of a forum's prevailing attitudes the other Warriors unleash their collective fury upon him. His usual reaction is "Hey, what did I do?" or "Why do you all hate me?" Target usually gets the hint after a while and moves on. NOTE: Target often serves as a useful pressure valve for the forum's pent up hostilities. Therefore, if the current Target has been driven off or immobilized a new target will be quickly selected. CAUTION: Target is a favorite disguise of Troller amd Evil Clown.

Man that's funny! I see peoples names by each. 9divdoc is definately a Klaxon. If I had to peg myself, I'd be a Philosopher.

Damn! That is good stuff. I can pick out board members for each personality. I'd like to see a poll taken - who do you think you are, and what catagory does everyone else put you in? Still trying to find my catagory, but I'm not too much of a warrior.

[img]http://photos.ar15.com/ImageGallery/Attachments/DownloadAttach.asp?iImageUnq=13841[/img] Admin is the janitor, the cop, the mayor, the judge and sometimes even the forum doctor who tends to Warriors injured in battle - in other words, Nanny on steroids. Because he runs the forum and sets the rules Admin has the power to pull the plug on any Warrior who gets a little too frisky. Sometimes his efforts are appreciated, but like any authority figure he is also resented - especially by Jerk, Evil Clown, L'Enfant Provocateur, Ego, Rebel Without a Clue, Yuk Yuk, Troller, and other Warriors who would like to turn the forum into their personal playground. Most Admins are generally fair and even handed, but the adage that absolute power corrupts absolutely is as true on the internet as it is anywhere else, and it is a rare Admin who can resist bringing the hammer down if seriously pressed by a determined foe. Sycophant and other suckups will also attach themselves to a strong Admin to form a defensive perimeter around him, and more often than not Admin's enemies will be driven off without him ever having to brandish his ax. CAUTION: Admin is the most powerful of all Warriors and drawing him into direct battle invites almost certain defeat. Rebel Leader does pose a limited threat to Admin's power by fomenting a revolt and causing forum members to jump ship.

[img]http://www.winternet.com/~mikelr/assets/Loopy3.jpg[/img] Don't try to understand Loopy's messages - they will forever remain opaque to all but himself. Loopy is easily aroused and exuberant in battle and fearlessly flings himself at any Warrior - even Kung-Fu Master. Loopy's main weapons consist of a disarming array of nonsequiturs, tautologies, and bizarre metaphors, which can often gain him an advantage in the initial stages of an attack. Combatants very quickly realize, however, that Loopy is a certifiable nut case and generally avoid further engagement, although Jerk and Evil Clown sometimes egg Loopy on for their own amusement. CAUTION: Loopy cannot be defeated with conventional weapons. Any response to his attacks will often provoke a fusillade of incoherent messages. HINT: If ignored, Loopy will continue to clatter and foam until Nanny removes him from the discussion forum.

Not here, but on certain other forums I'm a very successful Imposter: [img]http://www.winternet.com/~mikelr/assets/Impostor.jpg[/img] What y'all see of me here is the Real Me. Honest.

a perl script should be set up so that this site profiles you. answer a short list of questions and it comes back with 'newbie' or 'rebel leader' etc. would anybody not have to re-learn perl to get this to work?

You wouldn't have to write it in Perl necessarily, but any server-side language or environment. That's the easy part. The hard part is coming up with questions that would accurately profile each persona, and develop the algorithmic weighting (boolean algebra?) to create a matrix. Sort of like a traditional personality profile. Any behavioral psyches in the audience?

just set up your axis, plot the persona, weigh the questions w/ x,y,and z values and pick the closest match at the end of the questioning. i've done this before and you get good results w/ just a little common sense. edited to add: great, now i'm really thinking about doing this... f*ck, there goes my weekend.

[img]http://www.winternet.com/~mikelr/assets/Garble2.jpg[/img] Garble is a mystery: Is he a foreigner with only tenuous grasp of English? Is his brain addled by some powerful drug? Does he suffer a serious mental debility? Is he typing wearing a catcher's mit? Garble's rampant typos, malapropisms and seemingly aggressive use of execrable grammar can't be explained merely in terms of poor typing skills or the lack of a spell checker. Even non-English speakers generally do a better job of punctuation grammar and capitalization, and Garble is all the more puzzling because if one goes to the trouble of wading through the muddle of his messages a discernable idea will usually emerge

HeldHostage: [img]http://www.winternet.com/~mikelr/assets/Innocense.jpg[/img] Citabria: [img]http://www.winternet.com/~mikelr/assets/Enfant.jpg[/img]L'Enfant Provocateur likes to stir up trouble because...because, well...just because. This species of Flame Warrior is almost always young and male - it could be just a hormone thing. Beekeeper: [img]http://www.winternet.com/~mikelr/assets/Nanny.jpg[/img]Nanny tirelessly monitors forum discussions and makes it his mission to see to it that everyone behaves. While he is quick to admonish for off-topic messages and petty squabbling, he is generally rather slow to anger. Nanny rarely wades into pitched battles, rather he simply pulls the plug on combatants. Often Nanny becomes the unwitting ally to the intrigues of Rat and Crybaby.

ETH and ilikelegs: [img]http://www.winternet.com/~mikelr/assets/BigDog.jpg[/img] Big Dog is a bully who doesn't hesitate to use his superior strength to intimidate other combatants. Big Dog may be smart, articulate or just plain mean, but in any case he is a remorseless fighter, brutally ripping into even the weakest of combatants. Once Big Dog securely fastens his powerful jaws on a hapless victim, Me-Too will join the attack. Me-Too is far too weak and insecure to engage in single combat, and must ally himself with Big Dog or a pack of other Warriors to bring down his quarry.

There were a couple of these types around... [img]http://www.winternet.com/~mikelr/assets/Drunk.jpg[/img] As a forum participant Jekyll and Hyde always plays by the rules and is consistently cordial and helpful - a model netizen, until one day he comes completely uncorked and lashes out without warning. His unanticipated thunderbolts can temporarily rout even the sturdiest Warriors, and it often takes some time for his stunned opponents to mount a counter attack. Jekyll and Hyde's sudden behavioral change may result from a psychotic episode, PMS, a downturn in the market, a surprise visit by the in-laws - or a session of hard drinking...
