    Dominant types, meaning their mentality dominates the forum, yes. NP, INxP, ENxP, INTJ, INFJ, ISTP, ISFP.

    If you go by the most responded to blogs then yes. In the NF section it's Little Linguist, kyuuei, prplchknz, ByMySword. I don't feel like going through each forum or working some admin magic but you get the idea.

    If you go by the most viewed blogs then, uh someone's going to have to figure out the ratios, I don't feel like doing it now.

    Most definitely. People were clamoring to get repped by people so they could increase their own standing. I think the forum was fluffier then than it is now.

    IIRC, I think you, alean, and pink had the most reputation power. And y'all were definitely a rather powerful forum clique although completely benign and not mean-spirited about anything.

    And there is most definitely ways of establishing dominance on an internet forum. I'm sure some of you remember Jack Flak, he was a very dominant forum member. JF had much posting stamina and a strong will. Uberfuhrer was pretty dominant while he was here. Pink/Domino, Jaguar, Edgar, Victor, CaptainChick are dominant members. Bluemonday/MLF could be dominant if she choose to be. I'm personally defining dominance as the ability to rile people up, change forum tone and climate for better or worse. Trolls can dominant for a short period of time but dominance I think is an established value that increases over time.

    Then you have more established members who while not seeming to be dominant are a rather influential group of people. I think Toonia, effem, Tallulah, Magic, heart, udog, the madmins, etc.

    And there is a way to establish dominance, there's a formula for everything. Eh, I see Jennifer got to some of my points so I'm stopping.
    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.

    true, you get a feeling that some members would manage to catch the attention off the forum as well as on, by having a powerful personality- either abrasive or exhuberant

    I still remember what posters I looked up to when I was a new member- the people who usually stood aside and didn't get too involved in any of the forum brawls that seem to occur occasionally- that sort of gives a bit of lasting power in the end, more like a little black dress than jeggings

    Now Haysuess...be nice.

    Too many threats are counter-productive. You have to make examples of some, to control others.

    It's all part of the plan. World domination is an idea that is easy on the mind, but in order to realize it one must be prepared to show themselves in unimaginably complicated ways.

    Dominance is affected by what the forum values at the given moment. However, there will always remain dominant members outside the mainstream (which can be defined by dominance by means of possessing that which is most valued by the masses).

    During the rep system, dominance was mainly held by those with high reputation. That was acquired mainly by extraverted socialisation, as the highest-ranking members tended to be extraverted. The dialogue was fluffy and nauseating, but even I cannot excuse myself from having fallen for the seductive lure of reputation.

    After the rep system... I recall Edahn (a.k.a. xNTP) being a dominant poster. He said what he felt, he had interesting thoughts, he was charming.

    Hmmm... instead of dominance in the stereotypical sense, i.e. asserting yourself and/or strong-arming others, I'll base my opinion of who is dominant on who is most influential to me, IOW whose posts I pay attention to, digest, look forward to, etc. So most fluffers and overly antagonistic people/trolls won't be mentioned since I tend to skip over their posts...
