    The Burnout

    I suppose I qualify as a Lurker..

    Never really used them much in Starcraft aside from tower defense maps.

     

    ..whaaat?

    You guys should do a poll with this, let people choose which one that they think they are so we can see.  Maybe add a couple of these other suggested categories, like the flamer, thread jacker, ect

    I agree a poll on this would be vaguely interesting enough.  I think lurker would win hands down

    Don't for get the prima-donna. 

     

     

     

     

     

     

    The guy who put loads of space between sections

     

     

     

     

     

    Super annoying.


    There is NO miracle patch.

    95% of what you see in beta won't change by launch.

    Hope is not a stategy.

    Edit~~ This doesn't really count toward the list, but:

     

    The ninja.

    Someone who swoops in and answers all the OP's questions seconds before you do.  Not that this is done on purpose or anything, but still !!!


    pie.

    Funny, but very true.

    I could be any one of those Archetypes depending on my mood.  Although alot of n00bs are trolls in disguise.

    Hah!

    There's one closely related to that: Only Read The OP

    This poster does not read any of the other posts and just jumps into reply - repeating stuff that was already posted (probably multiple times) further up the thread.

    Funny and interesting list, however this is said about trolls: Trolls also tend to be condescending and rude. When all else fails, they usually resort to name calling.  Can just as much be applied to fanboys, specially the condescending part.

    Everyone is a troll. It's just a matter of to who, when and how often.

    There's a troll in all of us.

    Your time will come.

    I am kind of all of them. At times I have helped by answering questions, been the noob and troll. But never a fanboy, because I have not been blinded by a game so much I cant see its flaws.

    I will post what problems I have with a game I am playing but then in the next paragraph praise it.

    As for trolls I think the description is wrong or they have changed over the years. Trolls are the people who will put up an seemingly  innocent post about something silly in the game or game lore and then laugh at the fanboys fight it out and if the thread starts to die they add more fuel to the fire.

    but if I post that I'm a lurker won't I no longer be a lurker?

    Lets see you also got :




    1. Amatueur developer: he has an "active" mind and seeks to reinvent the proverbial wheel...for EVERY freekn game out there. All to no avail as developers never use his genious pointers and should haves.




     




    Good luck with that Einstein.




     




    2. The bait and switcher: The guy who posts an idea or theory and then disagrees with EVERY comment and then keeps trying to change their "real" intent and then goes off on some errant tangent when all seems lost.




    Um ok:




    Moses used the celestial stars




    Columbus had a map




    You need a Garmin or something like that to stay on track buddy




     




    3. Me first: posts first just for the hell of it:




    Yes these people just HAD to be first in everything in life, including posting on MMORPG.COM, they are the same A-holes who cut you off to every red light on the way from work each day 




     




    4. Resident Expert: Quiz comes to mind: A universaly accepted subject matter expert in this case, Hardware, who can point out the error of our ways as we mindlessly buy the wrong computers, install the wrong upgrades and buy that cheap A^% computer from E-Bay or fry a g-card in some cases.




     




    Thank God someone knows what they are doing around here!




     




    5. Help Me I have Fallen and I cant find an  MMO..ER! This person has played it all( see provided list) and reaches out to all of us to provide them with a new game to play............




    uhm....did anyone notice there is a MMO list... "yes I know"....its a tab at the top of the....."I know, but I want you to spoon feed me my next game, cuz you know what I like".....




    oh whatever O.0




     




    6.Seer of Signs: This poster has the Tin Foil hat GLUED to his head and seeks to post every theory about any MMO at any moment regardless of truth. Nothing escapes his notice no matter how far under the radar and dont think he doesnt know what Titan is all about, he merely awaits the next Blizz Con to confirm what he already knows.




    Hey buddy the tip of your tin foil is bent so fix it




     

    7. king Tut:  You have seen this poster, the person who constructs a wall of text that rivals the pyramids at Giza. Just like like archeaologists of old who couldnt scale the massive pyramids or decipher the strange heiroglyphics, we dont want to read your post that rivals war and peace either.

     

    Hey pal....... Rome wasnt built in a day and it looks like your post wasnt either....next time give us the cliff notes.

     

     

     

    8. The Great White:  Jaques Cousteau used to tell stories of massive almost prehistoric great white sharks that would devour unsuspecting sufers never to be seen again and so we see the Great White MMORPGer who prowls the vast reaches of the message boards searching for that unsuspecting, all alone post by an unaware poster and then...... it is all over before the thread got started: a vicious attack leaving the OP bloody and dying, wondering what hit them...........

     

    This is the most deadly of type of poster, the Great White, a killing machine, a devourer of life, a cold dark remnant of older times that still prowls the message boards to this very day.

     

     




    Thank you
