yes but nobody seems to notice or care. kind of like that clown that just sat in the corner of my 4th grade class for the whole year.
I do not pay attention to usernames or avatars, (especially avatars, you guys always seem to be changing them) nor keep a mental note of everything I post here. The color is just my way of marking "wait a second, I said that" whenever I'm going through a thread. Honestly, I wish everyone would color their posts so I can actually tell you all apart.
OK, So you pay 10 bucks to be able to post in a forum where you aren't allowed to do anything fun, despite the fact that you can get the same level or better discussion for free pretty much anywhere else without having to look at painfully unfunny articles. Why would you then pay the 10 bucks?
Gimmick accounts are basically a "No Homers" type rule anyway. A stray gimmick account done tastefully and by an otherwise valuable contributor just adds a little color and life to a forum. But if you go someplace and every other post is some autistic sperg roleplaying a samurai wolf who's also batman, the whole thing just degrades into an obnoxious mess. If you're not sure if you can pull it off then the answer is almost definitely no.
