    KWJ, just edit the url pointing to your current banner and include the letters "his" (short for history) in front of the number at the end. In your case, this would be:



    By the way, it looks like you have just a snapshot in your signature -- instead of using the signature picture function of the site add in the link you see above with IMG tags around it and it will automatically update as you add tanks. :)
  2. The results match what i assumed after viewing everyone's posts on certain topics.

    Really? I thought I'd wind up slightly right economically. Although, from an objective POV, the questions were tilted left fairly hard. Maybe that threw it off.

    The poll is roughly consistent with observations made on the forums. For instance, I won't deny a "Church Lady" streak (from Saturday Night Live in the 90s)

    Economic Left/Right: -3.62
    Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -6.36

    A lot of the answers though I just answered Strongly Agree/Disagree and really just did agree/disagree on the ones I felt neutral about.

    ^^ Agreed... definitely needs a "neutral" option. More neutral phrasing of certain questions would help as well. I suspect I'd be closer to economic zero-ish and social -5 or so.

    Yeah I'd probably be a lot closer to Bush if I could pick the neutral/don't care option.

    Yep, I figured out. But then I am really a Trekker!

    Hmm, pretty much what I had picured. A social libertarian with a fiscally conservative bent.

    Rotate this graph 45 degrees to the left.

    Delta Flyer, RyanDodgeRam, bestmapman, PaleMelanesia, and worthywads form say, the bottom of the bumper of a lifted pickup.

    So what does that blob of people at the bottom now represent? Truck nutz, perhaps?:D

    Now we are getting into Sigmund Freud territory....does this picture remind you of a man, woman, or a butterfly? :D

    I finally got the time to do this. It is somewhat embarrassing but it is kind of what I expected comparing some of my posts with most here.

    We need someone at -1.5, +1. That way we could make it a woman's figure, instead (and get away with it). 93Hatch is close enough for ahem...the other side, so then we just need someone at +2, +4. :D

    I forgot mine, it was something like maybe -7.25; -7.25 (nearly identical as I recall).
    It wasn't too surprising.
