Even we're all anonymous here except namefags, but we don't talk about them here, there are certain individuals here that many of us probably recognize. I dunno how bad meta-threads are, but Bizarro-threads seem to be okay, so I guess.

Who are some anons who you think you can recognize pretty easily?

I'm a GURPSfag who goes into "system suggestion" threads and admonishes everyone posting "GURPS" without context, or for suggesting GURPS when the OP specifically says he does not like or want to use the system.

Fucking this. "Everyone who disagrees with me is a samefag or trolling" has become the go-to argument defense on /tg/ and it's fucking pathetic.

For one thing, you're a fucking sad and sheltered little shit of a person if you have to resort to convincing yourself that everyone who disagrees with you is the same person. Maybe instead of crying "samefag" every time you're met with heavy opposition, consider rethinking your stance on a subject.

For another, it's trivially easy to shut down that pathetic "samefag" argument because /tg/ shows on the bottom of the fucking page how many different anons are in a thread, and anyone you're trying to claim is samefagging just has to screenshot your replies and show the lack of (You) to prove you're really a faggot with poorly thought out arguments and shit opinions.

Everyone in this thread needs to seriously reflect on themselves and what they post. The problem isn't trolls on /tg/, the problem is people like all of you who just can't fucking fathom the idea there's a forum on the internet that isn't just a same-opinion hugbox.

Legends Of The Wulin Guy.

He doesn't really start any threads, and he doesn't really force LotW into threads where it doesn't belong (I've never seen him suggest it in a hard sci-fi thread of a post-apoc thread, for instance), but if there's a thread for "Favorite Systems" or somebody's looking for a system to run "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon" in he'll be there. And he will provide polite, detailed, and incredibly extensive answers regarding the system to anyone who asks.

I get the feeling that he's the guy who's just so god damn excited about his toy that he wants people to talk about it, and honestly I don't mind. I'm sure a couple of fa/tg/uys have picked up the system after quizzing him about it, so good on him I guess.

But for real, the guy is tireless. I've seen him go 4+ posts at the character-limit after being asked for a particularly detailed rundown of a certain subsystem or another. He's the real deal.

I appreciate that. /tg/ is a great place to be able to express your love/hatred for lots of things openly; I certainly have my own (occasionally vitriolic) opinions on things, too. Expecting everyone's tastes to match is, to be blunt, pretty fucking retarded. So is trying to shove your pet RPG down everybody's throats all the time, a category which IMO absolutely includes refusal to rationally discuss or recommend OTHER GAMES just because your 'favorite' isn't the most appropriate to bring up at the time.

Anyway. Just trying to do my part as a (passably) rational poster; mend community bridges, shoot down retards, etc.

But, the thing is, there actually was one guy who kept making KSBD threads without even trying to discuss the KSBD game. It wasn't just one guy who was making KSBD threads (and some people were trying to actually discuss the KSBD game), but there was someone who was repeatedly making /co/ threads on /tg/. This upset people, and it got to the point where people started to attack any kSBD thread, just out of the chance it was that one guy trying to sneak another thread onto this board.

I think that's where a lot of these hang-ups come from. People end up associating a group of people with one person, and trying to pretend that anything related to what that one person is posting about is coming from that one person.

In many cases, the benefit of the doubt shouldn't be extended, or more importantly, it doesn't really matter if it's one or more people. If a hundred people wanted to start spamming CP on /tg/, or otherwise breaking the rules, that wouldn't make it any more or less right than if only one person did so.

In the case of KSBD, it's the unfortunate victim of exactly what this thread is trying to do. One person (or really, it could have been two, or ten, it doesn't actually matter) managed to taint something my mishandling how it was being posted, and that lead to it being treated as offtopic shitposting even when a person really was hoping to try and discuss the game.

You remind me of the guys who run the SSS. Most jojo posters are insufferable memesters, but those guys who did the Super Stand Sundays really tried their best to keep the discussion centered around actually using JoJo in games, and not just discussing the comic. It's a real shame though that it slowly got less and less popular, because it served as a good bulwark against the guys who seem obsessed about turning JoJo into some sort of touhou/my little pony analog.

I can't say I've ever participated in any effort as positively prolific and effective as that, though I do try my best to sway the resident GURPSfag community into being as on-task and self-aware/perceptive as possible.

If you really want easily recognizable "anonymous" people, check out the filename thread.
I've been frequenting it for two years, and I can mostly figure out people via their images/filenames/order-of-posting combination.
There are also some people that keep posting unpopular images (like picrelated, the image/filename itself, not the contents of it), despite that they never get a reaction from the thread, so you can also identify people via that.

-Obsessed with Kitsune little girls - It's the ONLY type of picture he posts.
-Shoots down any and all of other peoples by quoting exact page numbers at them from the Planescape setting books and working it so the other anon is always wrong.
- While at the same time totting his homebrew-scape as the best "If-not-cannon".
