How do you imagine other bzp members? I usually imagine them as their avatars, which can be akward for those who change their avatars often.

I usually imagine other BZP members that have been on this site for a long time as staff for some reason.

The avatar sometimes comes into play when imagining a member, as does their signoff tag, and their sig. Between those three, I can typically get a rough idea of their interests and then match a general face to those sorts of interests. I guess I'm playing upon stereotypes a bit with that, but it's harmless, I assure you.-Ced

I would like to point out that in some cases the interests/about me section on the profile page holds more information than the signoff tag or signature. ;)

I rarely imagine someone basing on something which isn't really reality-based. However, avatars sometimes make me think about a member's overall interests and behavior.

Y'know what? Fair enough. The next time I feel like I'm stereotyping a member by the stuff I see in a single post, I'll click their profile for more info. You inspired some change today. :)-Ced

Even while typing.Rayg is always making a rage face.Nuju Metru parkours everywhere.So yeah, my imagination tends to screw with my perception a little bit. :P

I can sweat through my mouth? :PBut as for me, I find it hard to imagine DeeVee, or B6, or Makaru, or anyone else for that matter, hunched over a laptop typing furiously. It just doesn't work. So typically I resort to seeing them as their avatar.

I usually picture BZPower members by the image they set through there posts, so their attitude reflects my idea of who they are. I've also met a good deal of BZPower members at LEGO stores, conventions and one at my own school.

I don't really imagine other BZPers - if I see pictures of them, I know what they look like, sure, but I just don't see a reason why, I guess. However, Aderia's saying of imagining them as storm-troopers is a humorous outlook. :P

On the day the wall came down / They threw the locks onto the ground
And with glasses high / We raised a cry / For freedom had arrived
 
On the day the wall came down / The ship of fools had finally run aground
Promises lit up the night / Like paper doves in flight
 
I dreamed you had left my side / No warmth, not even pride remained
And even though you needed me / It was clear that I could not do a thing for you
 
Now life devalues day by day / As friends and neighbors turn away
And there's a change that even with regret / Cannot be undone
 
Now frontiers shift like desert sands / While nations wash their bloodied hands
Of loyalty, of history / In shades of grey
 
I woke to the sound of drums / The music played, the morning sun streamed in
I turned and I looked at you / And all but the bitter residues slipped away
 
slipped away...
