For me, attention was the last thing I wanted, that's why I made alters, to be somebody else, to avoid the old baggage and just be accepted as one of the average people in the crowd without all the crap. Of course, it never worked. I always gave myself away. It was, however, out of a sad pent up desire to be liked and accepted, something I didn't feel I was as myself. It was NEVER anything mean or sinister, it was always due to my own insecurities about myself.

I really do think a LOT of people here have made alters to 'hide' from past issues they'd rather bury in their past. Look at the number of members here. I'd bet a good third of them are alters, or re-registers for some reason (even something as simple as lost password and dead old email making it irretrievable) Unless they are made to troll and bash, I really don't see any harm in alters.

Having an alter (or 2 or 20) and getting a new username aren't the same thing. I simply wanted a new name b/c I use this one on all my other forums (my old one is too long for most) and I like it better. By definition, an "alter" means you want a different self. My old username is basically retired, and everyone that knows me knows what it is (and it's listed w/ this one in Sicy's directory).

Everyone knew some of my alters were me too. Rock and Roll Kitty even had a location of 'yes, of course I'm her alter.' Everyone in the football forums knew I was Peyton Manning, and everyone on PLEBA knew I was Bono Kitty- my own cat! They were just for fun.

The sticky thread where she indexes the pics. I use it like an Interference directory, so I can have faces with names.

Making up some other personality to post with on here isn't the same as an alter, it has nothing to do with alters. It's being someone and something different than you really are in non-internet life. That's the point of the thread, not alters.

Maybe I should get an alter...

I would name him "Serious" or "I'm Serious" and then I could say "If I could be serious for a moment" and then switch to him...

That would be cool...
