I want to be a spiderweb forum superstar but I need a gimmick to make up for my lack of personality

I was thinking of either referring to myself in third person or signing my name at the end of every post but those seem to be taken!!

but you could never tell that with some of those pictures that the orcs steal from the real girls.

While 'sexist pig' still has room for members, it's probably not the best gimic to choose. I assume you'd rather be loved by the community, but if infamy is more your style... I guess it's your choice.

As an alternate suggestion, you could post funny, insightful, helpful, encouraging, and uplifting stuff all the time. But, ya know, only if you want to be known as the nicest Spiderwebber ever.

Seriously, though, I vote with Saunders.

Okay, was TM banned for something inappropriate in this thread, or that useless topic that he started. And how long is the ban?

TM is banned indefinitely, on account of Jeff saw TM's post in this thread before it got censored.

So you want to add something to the end of your every post? Well, I am a frequent poster in the DROD Forums and I add 'Keep posting' to the end of my every post. ErikH2000 (creator of DROD) rewarded me for that. But anything that you say often would be good. For instance, you could add... well, I haven't thought of anything for you yet. I just joined this forum. I will look over some of your posts and see what things that you usually repeat. But for now, putting your name at the end of every post would be good also.

Keep posting,

Adding your name to the end of your post is one of the oldest SW gimmicks.

And Scorp doesn't need a gimmick.

If I may add my two cents, I think that asking for help in creating an original gimmick is a bit ironic.

But Saunders is right, the best way to be known is by being yourself.
If you feel you absolutely must do something to differentiate yourself, try to keep it to something you might do in real life, just to have a good time.

Understand that what whatever you do (save emulating TM or worse), we're gonna try to like and respect you anyway.

There's more to being in a community than being a superstar.

--------------------
The Silent Assassin would like to point out that the LL dual-posting-sig gimmick was developed mostly before we started posting. He wanted to make sure that both of us said something in each post. It was actually seeing Dintiridan's format that made us think of presenting his thoughts this way (yes, we were newbs, and actually thought that the sig could be changed from post to post. The SA gag sigs were originally going to be on a day-to-day basis; something informational like this would be included in the actual body.).
The point being, unique as our gimmick is, we do it (occasionally, but originally) for a purpose, not to get attention.

Yeah. Right.

I repeat things which I for some reason like or am obsessed with. For example, nopw and then you will see me mentioning the "almighty chicken gods." I'm obsessed with chickens for some reason. No, don't ask why.

Indeed, this is very sooth.
Scorpius has a voice that is as unique and without need of added gimmick as Thuryl's.
