Say you decided to change your forum name. Do you think the members could recognize you by the manner in which you post? There are a few who I could spot instantly and then some who I would never guess who was posting a particular comment.

Certain people I would be able to tell based on where there posts were located.

Some peoples tones are pretty distinct so those I would get too.

maybe, but only because i almost never capitalize letters. if i changed my forum name, it would be c.a.eleric because that punctuation would separate the name into the way i read it in my mind; it's not meant to be one word, but breaking up the letters in my full name. never was a problem until i actually met some thp'ers and i had to put my real name together with my forum name and i realized how other people were saying it. stupid me!

Definitely...I think the sweaty pant picture would give it away.

I have no idea. I use "..." A lot and improperly so maybe that'd tip them off.

I did it a couple times, but Hawk was always in there. I'd say if I took the Hawk out, some would figure it out eventually.

No clue really, I'd guess not likely.

I'd like to think so.. A couple humours of favourites and I'd be all set... Plus my avatar wouldn't change. I've actually been pondering a name change -- Funny this topic should come up!

I think my post have been the subject of many jokes. I don't think I could hide behind another forum name.
