Is it just me?

Personally, when I see someone in game while I'm questing that often posts on the forums, or at least recognize the name from the forums, a little part of me....

Ok a lot of me goes "OMG! SQUEE! I saw that person in the forums!"

I can't really help it :p it makes it seem all the more real you can bump into anyone while going about your gaming business.

Anyone else do double takes too?

Edited cause small town rural speak that I'm ashamed to have used v_v

Never fanboy/girl anyone on the forums. Everybody here is a jerk. anyone you do like, you won't like after meeting them.

I do, but usually because I haven't had a chance to RP or meet most of the people who post here while leveling.

I kinda go "Oh hey, it's that person!" and /wave at them. Occasionally I'll throw a whisper at them. I don't get along with a lot of people on the forums, but ingame it's a different story.

There are some people that post here that I'd like to rp with at some point. Problem is, I'm a bit strange/shy about requesting role play. :P

I don't really fanboy over a player in a game.

When I do see a forum name I know, they usually do some douchebag move like snag my quest objectives or resource node I am fighting on.

It was the grabby hands, wasn't it? :P

I usually just walk up to another forum-goer and inappropriately caress their face until they fly off. I blew a kiss at Magdaleine in Stranglethorn a few days ago. I don't think he appreciated the affection.

Nah, I don't really do double takes. I just go: -slight squinty eyes- "Huh, it's so and so. ...what was I just running to do. Oh, right. More dailies." -flies off-

I do remember having hilarious reactions to seeing my teachers in stores or restaurants when I was in elementary school. Me at maybe 7: "o_o It's Miss Wherle in Walmart! She's outside of the school?! WTF? And buying bread and stuff like normal people?! O_O" -cue Twilight Zone music/stares in awe-

Edit: There was one exception. I flew into the Ally place in Dal to take the SW portal, and Venita was sitting on a bench with just her big boots on. I stopped, lol'ed a little and thought, "She really does sit around naked with just her boots on. Wha'da ya know."

I'll usually throw a /Hug, /Lick, /Wave, /Cheer, /Hi, /Moan, /Moo, or some twisted combination of all of those at people whose names are familiar.

I don't usually because I have name plates turned off. Though on ocassion I have seen a forum poster and recognized them from their Transmog and sent out a /wave or something like that.

I had this happen when I still had DK Pleiadia. I believe it was a Knights of Menethil member that recognized me. In a few other cases, on various toons, I was also noticed. I'm used to it frankly. I say my pleasantries in response and move on.

I've been gone for too long to remember who's who.

"But Edyrem, you've only been gone for like two months, how can you-"

Shut up.
