Maybe once I've gotten to know them I'll drop the question. Cause ya know, it's kind of important to know if one of your friends is indeed a supermodel.

I don't form an image of what people look like on forums, but do form an opinion on their personality. When I talk with people on my friends list, over time I do get a picture in my mind what they look like. In most cases they look nothing like I thought they would.

I usually do the same thing. If someone has better grammar or a more sophisticated manner of writing I see them as someone who may be a little bit older and mature. Someone who has awful grammar or who can't type well I see as a younger person. This is usually always wrong though haha. I don't know why I see this, but I do. Sometimes a mental image of a forum person comes to mind, but that too is usually wrong. I just base it on grammar and writing style, that really is all you can do to identify someone on a forum. I usually get use to this and skip posts by people who tend to have persistent bad grammar.

I do it alot...but i have to see said persons post alot. Example: if i saw a bunch of post by Hodge and read them all after a while i would build up a sort of look...for some reason its always an animal though... :? *sigh* as for people on this site...alot of mature ones surprisingly. Only people i dislike, and i wont name them, are the ones that post in a thread instantly bashing at a person for their opinion...the ones that post saying shit because there was another post just like it...the "search" option is NOT ALWAYS HELPFUL!!!..and they do it in such rude ways to. "there was already a fucking thread like this dipshit"...like seriously? no need to be rude..just dont post at all?? Oh and another thing...not to be mean or call out people but i usually see that users with a high post usually are the ones who are rude and mean (1000+post). Not calling anyone out or anything...just saying most the times i see someone rambling and saying shit in a rude manner its usually a high rank...other then that i like everyone on here. Good site. visit everyday

Heiarchy of how you guys look (to me anyways):

1. If you posted a pic in the Faces of x360a congrats, you would look like you, but with beards. Maybe a Zach Galifianakis beard. This includes the ladies.

2. No pic? No prob. If you show your gamertag, you would look like your xbox avatar. Even if you are clearly a dude and your avatar is a dudette, then you sir are a dudette.

3. If your x360a name or gamertag is someone famous, then you shall be a clone of that person. Unless you are that person, then wtf are you doing here?

4. If your x360a avatar or sig is a pic of a person (real or imaginary), then you are that person. See 2.

5. If you post an advert then you are a robot.

I do it alot, Mostly only on users with a Sig or a Picture i reconize. I hardly ever go by name. So if they change the sig or picture i pretty much forget who they are.

I normaly judge people completely wrong, When i first started there was a few members that i Just didnt like the look of, The way they posted, the things they said, ect, ect. Then a few months later they would be completely diffrent to how i thought they was.

I do try to treat everyone the same tho, If i've argued with a person in one thread i keep it to just that thread and have no bad feelings towards them in another thread and will happily help them out with any problems. Although there are one or 2 members members i will treat diffrently, like not talking back to mods even if i feel they are in the wrong(Learnt my lesson the first time) Or i somtimes dont post my opinion in a thread if i feel the OP is the sort of person that will rage at me if i have a diffrent opinion to he's.

I never really try to judge someone's personality based upon what they post here. Many people are extremely different in terms of personality online and offline.

I sometimes try to picture what other members look like though when they post. I do this in another message board too. Don't know why, but it's interesting (especially if you later find out what they look like).

i have judged the guy on here TitansWar now because every post i see that he has is either flaming, being a troll, sounding like a dick, or posting pointless stuff a lot so i usually skip over that specific guy's posts now.

I hear you man. Having a dig at me for no reason lol. I (yes I am this sad) looked through his recent posts and about 50% of them are flaming people. I just see no need for it TBH.

On topic: I don't know why but I get a feel of the user's age from their posts lol. I can tell most mods are older than me because they are so mature and don't take anything to heart, I don't think. I can tell when users are around my age with the words they use and the way they type.

It's normal for some people to be judgemental, however that's me right there in the theatre of dreams not too long ago, so I don't portray a weird image of myself based purely on my posts!

I'm too busy lobbying government and organising rallies to get Sega to make Shenmue 3, as well as sparing any free time I have coaching Emile Heskey. I just don't have the time these days to judge folk on here, most are far younger than me (Not Creech).

If anyone wonders if I am as handsome as Ryo, then I'm sorry, I may have led you on. Here I am in all my clown glory.

I judge people by their gamertags usally and somtimes i'm wrong. I usally go by the idea that if their tag is xXisnipeMLGXx then their probly some teenage kid with some super testerone boost. But it could be somthing like Waggly Bean and i think their creative or imaginitive etc. Although i hate to think with a tag of just my name people may think im boring. Intresting thread though got me thinking quite a bit

Also to wii187 - Does that mean i'm super mario to you? Woohoo let'sa play some xbox

When I used to play MMO's and chat over vent, I found that was when my imagination was most active. Once you hear a persons voice in your ears for hours out of your day, I would think it would be difficult to not try and construct some sort of appearance for them.

I always got a kick when it was late night sharing time and the myspace's, facebooks, all of of the pictures were thrown out there. I would say usually I'm way off base.

As for on the forums, it's been a while since I was on one every day of the week, 24/7 so my mind doesn't dwell on what I think so and so acts or looks like in real life.
I probably used to do that when I was a member of Gaia.
Let's never mention that again.
^-^

I do this aswell, especially if you play a lot with them on Live.
(Still wonder what Taillear looks like, I can't make an image for him).

As for the other posts, I can only imagine who you're talking about
If my paranoia is right for once, I'm a cunt and I know it, so what? If you want to think it, fair enough, I'll be like that when it's needed for whatever reason, I can be okay sometimes no matter how unlikely it seems xD

I've said a lot of stupid things on this forum and others. It may or may not speak volumes about my intelligence, I don't know. And I also come off as hostile to people who don't really know me. Especially on the xbox.com/forums.

I remember joining a game with one friend and he was speaking to someone about me and said, "Yeah, he's really hostile sometimes." Which I thought was funny because I consider myself easy going, just flat-out blunt.

Back on topic:

There's actually one person on this site I try to avoid based on some of the previous posts of his that I have read. He seems like such a **** that I go out of my way to avoid confrontation with him. The majority of people (unless they're friends of mine) I don't label in any kind of way.
