I was talking to Lüt, our resident revenant, and I got to thinking: If you ever ran into someone from these boards, or anyone you know just from games or online dealings, and got into a real face-to-face or phone conversation, how would you refer to them? How would you want them to refer to you?

Well everyone just calls me Liam anyway so it doesn't matter. If they wanted to call me Bardman or something I guess that's fine.

mix and match. Erico and Ralphis are close enough to their real names, anyway.

then again, so is mine...

Hmm, if I knew the person's real name I'd probably use it if I met him/her face to face, but if not, I'd just use his/her nick until I'm told what the real name is.

Sorry for reviving the thread like this, but:

IMJack, I'll be up in Dallas tomorrow. If you see me (I hope you've seen a picture of me before on my station or something), tap me on the shoulder and tell me, "Hi. IMJack, from DW. Nice to finally see you in person, Cren." :)

Cren: I assume you'll be at the Casino Night thing. I'll keep an eye out for you.

Ling: Pleeeez bring the PMS back! Those of us who use it miss it! :|

I think it's still availible, in the member's profile. Not sure, though. I know that if you click for the mod list on the main forum page (Here, to save you some time) there are several people with a PM option...

To hell with it.

Anyway, Cren either isn't on AIM right now or has some kinda block keeping me from seeing him. (Cren: unblock "EscapedFromUtah" :)

I'd probably just ask "do you post as " and then start calling by real name.

I always thought it was weird when people called me Lüt in an IM or on the phone.

Could it be because your real name is Fredrik perhaps?
Fredrik Johannson if I'm not mistaken.

I'd at least try to call you Dean, because shouting "Yo, Deahie!" across a crowded street would be kinda weird.

On my BBS we had annual meet-ups with the users, and at the 1st one , where no-one knew anyone else, it was held at an hotel in Bournemouth England, there were around 120 of us booked in for the overnight drinks and get together, people were milling around in the main bar, some knew one another as they were local to each other, as I went to the bar to get another beer, I heard this very loud girl's voice (Stardust) say "I bet that's Fod", we were ALL using on-line names, and even after about 10 of these get togethers we STILL do :)

Heh, turns out it's the third choice, with only a little stuttering. Crendo and I met up, spent a few hours playing blackjack, and spent a whole lot of time talking (while everyone else suffered through the Tomb Raider movie). I think I managed to corrupt- I mean, convince him to come to UTD. ;)

Heh, I've been thinking of going on some kind of roadtrip before I get stuck in a permanent job. Too bad most of the people I'm best friends with here live overseas.

You should arrange some sort of vacation to meet some of your best friends then.

You could take an air trip, then.
