    If there were no names or special fonts attached to posts, do you think you'd be pretty good at figuring out who wrote each one?

    For instance...

    That would have been a no-brainer for me. Alex tends to post with the same attitude, regardless of subject matter.

    There are a few members who have very similar posting styles and are hard to differentiate, but for the most part, I'm a pretty good guesser.
    Even when we played mafia (which I miss very much) I could almost always tell who was who within a few posts.

    I think BR has a distinct posting style. I can't really say how, I just think I'd know if it was him.

    Also, Swift would not be too hard to pick out of a crowd.

    This would make a good game. Yeah, some people are pretty predictable and easy to identify.

    I agree with Cons, I think it's pretty easy to know my posting style. Sometimes I have problems putting things into words so I just say the first thing that pops into my head.

    But if I give a post a lot of though and effort, then I can be surprising at times.

    I totally read your posts with an accent, especially since hearing you.

    Actually this would be a very entertaining game.

    Even by not being here very often certain members have certain posting styles.

    Twitch usually gives the most immature response imaginable, I call it "classic teen".

    Tucker usually makes off-the-wall posts that I sometimes do not understand.

    Angel's posts are usually cynical, sarcastic, or both.

    And Eli's posts have a common theme: pointless.

    Tucker is definitely a noticeable style. I've been picturing him stoned and wearing a sombrero with his latest posts.

    Yeah the only person you could possibly confuse Tucker's posting style with is Synd. Well, if he was still around.
    Other easily recognisable people: Elly, EEB, BR, Ice.


    I'd probably be rubbish at trying to figure out which members wrote what on the boards.

    Icegoat's - his style is distinct to me that I guessed him from mafia on the first day

    There are others, even banned members' style (so when they come back with anothe alias it looks déjà-vu to me). Some are more because of the content than a style. Like in MD, without avatars and names, I could guess who would make such a claim/stand.

    usually I know my biggest tip off is this guy: :hah: I over use him like crazy. But figured meh, its better than having hahahaha after every other sentence I write.


    For me, its Smelnyk and Pretzle that always seem to stick out like a sore thumb. In Mafia those two were really easy to pick out. Other than that I dont pay attention to many other styles.
