SchlingFocker: You need to better define "alt".

Is an alt only when a person uses two logins concurrently?

Or, is an alt when a person stops using one login and begins using another one?

My old login was SchlingFo. Once I started nursing school, I switched over to SchlingFocker. I just did it because I was proud of getting into nursing school.

I stopped using the old one.


I miss SchlingFo. That guy was cool

Nea.

Alts are for people with no real life friends, are too afraid to post their bullsh*t as themselves, spend too much time on this site, and/or have mental issues.

buckler: dittybopper: Mrstupid7: I don't trust the Fins.

Don't knock the Finns. They took home the gold in Full Contact Team Biathlon at the 1940 Winter Games.

A Finn named Simo Hayha took home the individual gold.

Full Contact Team Biathlon? How have I kept missing that?

*shuff shuff shuff shuff* "LOOK OUT!" *BLAM* "Urk"


Well, the 1940 Winter Games was a very special competition.

Alts, we don't need your stinking Alts.

I have one alt because I forgot my password, then forgot the password to the email address it was attached to.

My head just exploded while trying to wrap it around the idea that Gorgor and Tats are the same person. I once got bslaped for suggesting Gorgor might be Czar and some have asserted that Tats and Czar are the same which would mean Gorgor Tats and czar are all the same......this is where i lost it

Both count on this one, even the use of multiple logins concurrently is more close to what I was thinking.

was the Fin on your back part of the deal..?

Hit it and F4 to experience true WIN

I'll go ahead and fill out the survey later this evening.

I was going to post some fake answers to the survey but then I clicked on the picture link in your profile and I realized that you are human, just like me. Except you're a woman.

I use alts to THIS my posts and to sponsor me for Total Fark when I post something that strikes me as particularly funny.

notauniquesnowflake: See, I've never understood that. Your personality isn't consistent in real life, why on earth would it be online?

Your disposition may not be consistent, but your personality and views should be fairly so. Also remember that some people view anyone that disagrees with them or the "mainstream" in the slightest as an obvious troll. I've been called a troll for saying that politicians are party-bound or even quoting engine torque figures in "Lb-ft" if you can believe that.

The real difference is: are you responding in a manner consistent with your beliefs, or are you doing so merely to elicit a specific reaction? Do the latter, especially deliberately with another screen name, and you're an alt troll.


Not necessarily. I'm only in my early 20s. My views and opinions do change rather rapidly still on some issues, depending on what recent reading I've done and conversations I've had.

Additionally, while my views might not change, the way I express them may. So I may express the same view two different days, but one day do it by being really biatchy and the other day by utilizing an educated, well-thought-out response.

/If you think personality is consistent, you must not know many women.
//I'm a biatch; I'm a lover; I'm a child; I'm a mother; I'm a sinner; I'm a saint.
///I keed.
////sort of

Side-note: I do like the idea of taking over a whole thread by arguing with myself.

wepsi, I just took the survey, feel free to use my name in your thesis. It should be easy to find.

The full name is Saberus Alain Jacobi Ferdinand Jasperi de la Terras

No, *I'M* WWTPBB.

I don't take this seriously enough to invest the effort in an alt...
 
2009-06-03 03:14:32 PM
I'm not sure how scientific your results will be coming from this group. I mean, I clicked on the survey and the only thing I wanted to do was type in really f*cked up answers. Maybe it's just me.
 
2009-06-03 03:14:38 PM
I am an alt
 
2009-06-03 03:14:49 PM
I was going to fill it out but alternate identity said no.
 
2009-06-03 03:14:58 PM
Alts can be fun. The obnoxious trolls that use multiple alts to routinely threadshiat are not the fun ones.

Interesting subject, wepsi. I never understood the reason for alts, unless it is someone famous (such as Wil) who feels their comments could haunt them IRL. Otherwise I feel they are a cowardly way to fark with people. I don't worry if my opinions make some people unhappy; I am not here to follow the crowd.

I wish you the best of luck with your thesis.

no need for alts here. I have enough trouble keeping my screwed-up mind together without having to remember which one of me said it.
 
2009-06-03 03:16:10 PM
@wepsi

I do not have an alt, but feel free to use my handle in your paper or otherwise. My email in my profile for matchup.

tedbundee: Alts: Because an anonymous handle isn't enough to cover just how embarrassing your life really is.

Ya this. Using a handle is pretty normal in the online world and has been for years. People even have nicknames and associated personas in their public lives, but multiple personalities/identities = KRAZEE!

Having multiple logins is like having multiple wives, twice the pain in the ass with no real benefits.

Shut up, barjockey, you cock.

The only time I use alt is ctrl alt delete and in Link (new window)
 
2009-06-03 03:17:55 PM
In WoW, good - they keep me from burning out on my main. On Fark? No. Too easy to stray from the truth.
 
2009-06-03 03:17:58 PM
Personally, I find alts to be a waste of time. What we really just need is a 'Bizzaro world' tag for when we unleash our own personal Jonathan Swifts.

/And for the record, I'm the evil twin because they have more fun

Two reasons I can think of: to troll (the politics section), and to pull a prank (skookems list)

In a completely unrelated post, do all you folks know that google now crawls Fark?

For example: site:fark.com "Pxtl"
