    OTF "hierarchy" - Where do you see yourself?

    Dull, talk bollocks, rare random brilliance (and taste), but cannon-fodder.

    You?

          Wasn't there a thing on the interwebs a few years ago featuring cartoons of message board stereotypes?

            Somewhere in the life's too short to give a shit bracket.

            I can enjoy reading World, without feeling inadequate.

              I see myself as someone still new and not sure of people's real life jobs etc....not that it's even slightly any of my business but a bit frustrating when folk are referred to as "writers", for example, and I've got no clue as to whether the writing in question is journalism, book writing in general, copywriting, publicity or what. The veterans on here will take this knowledge for granted. Doesn't matter really but context is always useful.

                  Mid-table. Occasional insightful point, occasional idiocy, but never scaling the heights nor plumbing the depths. I know my place, and happy to be here.

                    Try to be an all-rounder, posting on all the subforums, but can turn into a jack of all trades.

                      I don't think of myself, nor (I hope) anyone else in those terms.

                        We just don't know enough about each other to be able to make those kinds of judgments - our forum personae are only a small fraction of who we are.

                        Thus I'd interpret Gero's "where do you see yourself" as how you see your forum identity rather trying to work out whom you "truly" are as reflected in OTF, because OTF can't perform the latter role and it would be deeply unhealthy to do self-diagnosis via social media.

                          Hopefully slightly above Rod Liddle. But obviously not as famous for being a reactionary troll.

                            It's a flat hierarchy and I regard you all as equals.

                              That's perfect.

                                In the corner of the OTF members's club, in a nice comfy chair, reading the local paper whilst keeping one eye on the golf. And tutting at any ribaldry.

                                          The grizzled veteran who, as a result, becomes more selective with his posting activity.

                                            When we last did something like this ("If OTF was a pub what kind of regular would you be" ...or something like that). I said I'd be the old geezer in the corner, sucking his teeth and mumbling to himself while nursing half-a-pint of mild until closing time.

                                            Nothing's changed.

                                              The quiet one in the corner who doesn't pipe up much.

                                                So, people aren't really placing themselves within the hierarchy because, of course, there isn't really one. Types or perceived images are being provided instead but in such a typically self-effacing way that everyone is playing down their contribution to what makes OTF what it is: highly opinionated, political, intellectually engaging, informative, emotionally-supportive and very, very witty.
