    Do you like my new avatar choice, MP?

    Trying to get some insight into it. Some folks like it; others find it generic.


    Thoughts?

    You sure don't sound like an INTP. Those are your opinions of what a mod should be like. And your opinion of Nocapzy... Have you had a disagreement and been proven wrong about something?

    Indeed. Humans will be humans, and mods should be allowed to have opinions, too. But they might need more filtering and logical reason than the average user. In my opinion, mods should be able to be whatever they want, even nazis, if they keep the worst parts to themselves and are able to explain why they think like they do, in a logical manner.

    Mods and admins are the ruling class, more or less, and there shouldn't be one dominant political view on things... Even "political correctness" should probably not be adhered to by all of them.


    These are however only my personal opinions, and they are probably a wee bit too radical to ever make me a mod. I agree with that from an impersonal point of view, because I know that I would piss some people off. I cannot and will not say that Nocapzy would be a bad moderator, though.

    Is it new? It looks to me like it was one of your older ones.

    I liked it before and I like it now, though I admit that I can't give very detailed reasoning for it. I guess it's that I like clocks, I like the grim reaper, and I'm amused by incongruity (which comes from the smiley face).

    I'm really not sure what others would mean by calling it generic.
    Go to sleep, iguana.

    Word.

    Like you, the contrast between the Grim and the smiley face is especially compelling.


    As an aside, I don't think I ever found out why you chose the Mega Man villain as yours...?

    I've never been proven wrong by him. He doesn't really even do that, he just jerks people around.

    But I suppose I don't sound like an INTP because I actually said something positive about SJ quallities? Or is it because I said something about what is supposed to be?

    That... is pretty much what I've been intending to say.

    Well, as far as law and order goes, it does generally make sense for enforcers to follow the rules that they have put on display for others.

    As it so happens, I drew the picture myself. When I drew it, I did not intend to actually be drawing the megaman villain, but simply took it as inspiration for the thing I was going to make. I apprently drew something closer to the original than I thought. I only recall there being a green one with a white eye. Was there eventually one of the coloration I used?

    Anyhow, the creature I made was something for a world of my own imagination (and there are many). It was a whole race of things that looked like that. They had the ability to turn invisible, and were master thieves. All this has to do with the fact that the Gods of the land decreed that there would be no more killing, and so on and so forth. There are a lot of details I shant get into.

    I decided to use that thing as my avatar for three reasons.
    1: I simply like the way it looks, and am pleased to be identified with it.
    2: I thought it would make sense to use something that I drew myself, as avatars are supposed to be a thing of personal identity.
    3: I have an affinity with the stealthiness and caution of those creatures I invented.
    Go to sleep, iguana.

    Seconded.

    Don't hate, congratulate.
    Relationships have normal ebbs and flows. They do not automatically get better and better when the participants learn more and more about each other. Instead, the participants have to work through the tensions of the relationship (the dialectic) while they learn and group themselves and a parties in a relationships. At times the relationships is very open and sharing. Other time, one or both parties to the relationship need their space, or have other concerns, and the relationship is less open. The theory posits that these cycles occur throughout the life of the relationship as the persons try to balance their needs for privacy and open relationship.
