Everyone seems a bit suspicious at the moment so I have developed a test to see what sort of MNetter you are. Feel free to add questions to the quiz grin.

1. You think back to your first post on MN. Do you...
a) Remember with fondness the great article you managed to produce from it. Your editor was very happy that day
b) I haven't posted yet, I'm still trying to pluck up the courage.
c) think 'I can just about remember that. Has it been that long?'
d) My memory doesn't go back that far. I think I wrote it on a typewriter and posted it in.

2. You see a 5 year old being pushed in their buggy, leaving Greggs, with a sausage roll and fruitshoot, whilst the mother smokes a fag. What is your first thought?
a) I should post that on AIBU when I get home and rub myself whilst enjoying the furore I have created.
b) Raise an eyebrow but it's not that unusual.
c) I wonder what MN would make of this?
d) I bet that's been posted to AIBU by the time I get home.

3. Before you joined MN...
a) The quality of your articles were of a pretty poor standard.
b) It was only last week.
c) Had way more time on my hands
d) Had no life whatsoever.

4. What are DC?
a) One half of a band? I think my editor knows them.
b) I have no idea.
c) My Darling Children of course.
d) Those annoying people who compete for my attention whilst MNetting.

5. Why did you last NC?
a) I had to, MNHQ were on to me.
b) This is my first NN, I don't know how to NC.
c) I was getting a bit recognisable having posted quite a lot under my previous NN.
d) What?! NC?! But then nobody would know who I am!!!

6. What is AIBU?
a) The best place to get a kick out of MNetters
b) The first place I was taken to when doing a google search.
c) Just one small part of MN. There are other boards.
d) My daily hangout.

7. You see a particularly nasty, goady thread posted. Do you...
a) Sit back and admire your handy work.
b) Wonder what will happen next?
c) Brace yourself, this won't go down well.
d) Sit back with popcorn, don hard hat, hand OP a flameproof suit and/or a grip and hand out cake/wine/chocolate.

8. What is a Moldie?
a) Crap, I've been outed as a mole and I must die!!!
b) Um, no idea.
c) I've heard of this but not really sure.
d) We must never speak of this.

9. Ahem! MNHQ deleted your post. Do you..
a) Shit yourself. You've been caught!
b) Wonder what is going on and make note to read talk guidelines again?
c) Slap yourself on the wrist. It's not the first time though.
d) Ply MNHQ with gin.

10. You think you have spotted a troll. what do you do?
a) Put the mirror down and stop admiring your reflection.
b) What is a troll?
c) Report the thread.
d) Shout TROLL on the thread and completely derail it.

11. You take a look in classics. Do you...
a) Note some common MNettisms to stop people realising you are a troll.
b) Think it is great. You might just stick around here.
c) Remember when the threads you read were originally posted.
d) Think it's like reading a diary. Afterall, they're mostly your posts.

12. The last time you used an MNettism you..
a) were quoting it in your most recent article.
b) What is a MNettism?
c) I let them slip in RL now and again.
d) I speak a whole new language made up of MNettisms.

13. You think you recognise someone on here in RL. Do you..
a) Think, 'ah, that's Steve from the rival newspaper'. You finish your article quickly to get it published first.
b) Worry that you might be outed yourself.
c) Post on MN for advice about what you should do?
d) Of course I recognise people on here from RL. Half of them are my friends. In fact we were all together on the last meet up.

Results:
Mostly As: You are a troll or a journalist.

<curtsies before MN Royalty> grin

grin

In all honesty the 'royalty' that i remember from joining the other year seem to have disappeared or namechanged sad i like the MN royal family!

TheMNeffect Fri 12-Apr-13 21:38:28

TBH I don't understand why being classed as MN Royalty is A Bad Thing. Surely it just means you've invested so much into the site that you become quite recognisable. Unless I've completely misunderstood what it means?

That sums it up for me - they've been around forever, are familiar to everyone (nearly) and you can tell just from their name what type of thread/comment you are about to read.

I hate when royalty is used as an insult -i just don't get it at all.

everlong Fri 12-Apr-13 21:50:33

OP some people use the term royalty in a derogatory way.

I've seen it time and time again. Lovely posters being accused of thinking something of themselves ( which they don't ) and having the royalty thing thrown at them. Sometimes really upsetting them.

It's naff and needs to be stopped.

TheMNeffect Fri 12-Apr-13 21:58:45

Ah, that makes sense everlong and I totally agree.

I knew it was used in a derogatory way, hence me using it in a jokey way for the quiz grin.

But all the same, I think someone being labelled as 'royalty' would just show how much of themselves to this site. Perhaps MN Regular is more apt, you know, like a pub regular wink.

TheMNeffect Fri 12-Apr-13 21:59:13

*they give

everlong Fri 12-Apr-13 22:04:37

LOL yes pub regular sits better.

Of course there will always be popular posters on a forum, some because they are funny, some because they are very sweet, some for being a total cunt wink that's just how forums work.

There's no need for folk to have chips on their shoulder smile

Mostly Cs, been here just over 3 years.

poorchurchmouse Fri 12-Apr-13 22:28:34

Mostly Cs - though I lurk far more than I post. Great thread OP.

Mostly c's with a few b's. Have been here nearly 5 years, but lurker more than poster. Still addicted though!

YouTheCat Fri 12-Apr-13 22:45:59

Bs Cs and Ds - bit like my O level results grin

IncrediblePhatTheInnkeepersCat Fri 12-Apr-13 22:48:53

Mostly C. Just realised that I must have been on here for about 2 years or more now! (Namechanger)

that was quite good, although i do worry about the amount of your own time that took you. I think you need a hobby

usualsuspect Fri 12-Apr-13 22:53:15

The OP was a bit tl;dr. Sorry.

TheMNeffect Fri 12-Apr-13 22:57:16

Loving your answers custardo grin.

It took me about half an hour. I was procrastinating over an assignment I had to do <master procrastinator + MN = never gets anything done>.

TheMNeffect Fri 12-Apr-13 23:06:39

confused at usualsuspect. What does tl;dr mean?

Isn't MNing a hobby? I'm 99% sure it is a valid use of my time wink.

headlesslambrini Fri 12-Apr-13 23:10:40

Mainly C's but closely followed by Ds, far from being royalty thought. i dont think most posters would.recognise me.
