Are you a Stalker?

Once upon a time there was a thread of that name, but search engine failed to bring it up for me, so I decided to start in anew

What do I mean? The question is quite simple: Do you follow people around on the Downs, whom (if you feel inclined to reveal that), and for what reason?

I for myself am a stalker alright for several reasons:

For one, I usually log on from my office, where we poor mere mortals (i.e. everybody except higher up management and IT staff) have limited access to the net, which is expressed in a ban on load of key words like 'music', 'movie', 'download' and, most of all 'forum'. When link contains one of said keywords, there is no way of getting onto the site in question, unless one uses some tricks, like yours truly does in using IP address instead of 'forum.barrowdowns.com' combination. But, there are some restrictions - per instance, I can not get to sub-fora, as they contain words like forumID=, which can not be replaced, only to individual posts. So the usual way for me is to get "who's online" and 'active topics' lists and move on from there. But such an option gives only picture of last several hours, and there may be some interesting thread of two days ago that I would miss, unless (and here comes in my favouritism) I do not scan recent posts of individual members.

And members usually stalked after by yours truly are numerous, but I would venture the names of several

Leaving alone old hard-core philosophers like Child of Seventh Age, mark 12:30 and Bethberry, davem, per instance, is the member of choice for his (her?) posts are very well thought-out and articulate
and not in random places, but in spots of interest. Belin and Bill Ferny are other two, though I haven't seen neither recently. There are a lot more I follow around, and thanks to them for being around for me to follow

that's about the shape of it. Join in

I must admit...

I do 'stalk' Nurumaiel...you gotta love Nuru's posts. Mark12_30, Aman, Fordim as well...and on occasion I will see what Durelin and Bethberry are up to. All those great RPers.

There...off my shoulders.

I do stalk...althought there isn't a person. I just stalk anyone in the Quiz Room trying to answer my questions!


Btw, look at my location!

Well, I normally "stalk" NightKnight, Firefoot, and The Perky Ent around the Quiz Room and Quotable Quotes.

I also "stalk" anyone who is involved with me in the Green Dragon Inn, namely Bombadil and Alaksoron.

Wow, bummer HI...that must really stink...

I'm stalked? Wow, cool!

Well, I don't suppose I stalk anyone in particular - only everyone in the QR an QQ sections that might answer my questions or set more questions. Also people in the Green Dragon, especially Eowyn Skywalker and Mad Baggins. And I suppose I use the "Who's Online" function an awful lot.

Stalking-wow, what a concept. I had never really looked into it before. I shall ponder doing this maybe now that the RP I am currently in is now coming to a close.

As I sit here and type I do think about how I've stalked Angry Brandybuck-but that was to see if he would post in the Green Dragon. Now he has disappeared, leaving our little love thingie in a fix. Darn him.

I think I must agree in stalking Aman. Very very impressive RP skills that I am sure I will be watching more in the future.

I guess then that makes me a stalker as well-even though I would never bother people. Is that one of the requirements to being a stalker? Do you have to bug someone? As you can see I'm clearly new to the whole stalker idea.

Anyone can stalk me, I do not mind. Well I would if it got out of hand.... Allow me to ponder on that thought as well.

Based on experience, being stalked is supposed to be scary. It seems not so here in the Downs!

Does always checking Who's Online make you a stalker? It's fun to see what everyone else is up to in the Downs, especially if there's only a few of you online and you feel alone...so you follow them around. Is this a symptom of stalkeringitis?

It might. I'm not the expert in this area.

Heren- are you a Potter fan? I'm just asking because I've seen you in some threads with your signature stating that Weasly is our King. I'm just wondering because I'm a Potter fan as well. Great books, great movies. I can't wait to see the new one!

do I stalk heren too? must ponder that.

Aye, I wondered that as well. His sig right now is the password thing to make the Marauder's Map work, I think...but I haven't read the books in a while...

Helen, how do the 'spider bots' work? I've seen them on Who's Online but didn't know what the heck they were doing...

Search engines have programs that "spider" through the whole internet link by link updating their huge databases. But sometimes, they happen to unearth cool threads that I'd forgotten ever ixisted, or look intriguing. So I chase them.

*gets evil expresion* Yesssssss... we are... err... I am, I am a stalker... mwha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha. I don't know who I stalk, though I find myself watching people in the Green Dragon whom I post with, namingly, Firefoot, and Mad Baggins. I've also found myself watching The Perky Ent... probably a lot in The Shire, and the quote room. Plus, I LOVE the Who's Online function... tee hee... yes, I am evil. And PROUD of it!

I'm stalked? Firefoot? You STALK me????????? Hmm... well, no worse than I, I suppose, as I watch you and Mad Baggins too... snrk. Our Green Dragon characters know each other too well.

Oh yeah, I also watch Amaraden (sp?) Ravenhill. as she posts in the What Happens When You are Bored thread... oh yeah, and Maegaladiel... because she's nearsighted too, and won't see me... snrk.

At last, I have confessed, snrk.

I'm stalked? Bum Bum Bum! But then, I stalk Firefoot, NightKnight, (Kings of the Quiz Room), also Eowyn Skywalker. Ha ha! A double stalk! And Lhunardawen, there correct yet un-official term for someone who stalks the Who's Online is someone who suffers from a Stalkatoma For more information, click on the link. It's a field guide on the many Downs problems people can have. Very useful in times of bordom.

BTW, that spider this is really cool. Now I can see threads that I never knew exsisted. Did that come with the recent upgrade?

Dreamsong-Yes you are correct in what you said about Heren's signature being the password to the Mauraders Map. Book 3-Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azakban.

But I digress..... I shouldn't have said that outloud. Silly me.

I've think I've semi stalked the Perky Ent as well. Amazing posts I must say.

I s'pose if constantly checking who's online on the main page and who's under the 'Currently Active Users' column in the individual topics, then yes, I am a stalker.

Haven't stalked any guests yet.. *takes note to do that* moohooahahaha-ha *enter evile smiley here*

I seem to be a different sort of stalker. I love to find out people's locations. It's not that I want to kidnap them or anything, I'm just interested. I see if anyone I know in real life lives or has lived near member's location. For instance, I see H-I's location and I think "My family has friends in T'blisi -- I wonder if he knows them. Or if he is one of them!" Things like that. I see that The Only Real Estel lives in Kansas and I think that my mom used to live in Kansas, or I find that The Barrow-Wight lives in Virginia, and I have large amounts of family there (he even looks a whole lot like my uncle!). I also seem to be very intent on finding other Wisconsinites. At present I have counted about 5 or 6. I just like finding people who are in some small way connected with me, I guess.

Beware!

Beware, people! Here is the real stalker amongst our ranks! a-a-a-a!

Well, seriously, I do look location entries up too, for indeed, it would be fine to find that chap next desk to yours whom you hardly ever talked to, though you've been working in the same office for ages, is fellow BDer, besides, most of them are humorous.

As for me being Orominuialwen's relative, I would be glad to welcome an opportunity, but I have a suspision you are a little bit mistaken there. Georgia in my location is indeed my real habitat, but is is not one of the states, but country to the east of the Black Sea .

They're not relatives, just close family friends, but yes, they do live in the country Georgia, in Tblisi as a matter of fact. After looking at your web page I found out that you are any of them, but who knows, you could be their neighbor or something! Stranger things have happened.

Well... I think I've mentioned it on the Barrow-downs birthday party thread... giggle.

If I had the time to do so, I would stalk all the members of the Nearsighted Elves Society. But I do know that Maeggaladiel is nowhere to be seen, as she is on vacation...I just don't know exactly where. You see, I am an amateur, if I am a stalker at all.

HI, I believe the Nearsighted Elves Society is just that. A society for Nearsighted Elves, no more and no less. I once posed as one such Elf in order to infiltrate the society but I was caught and beaten by 3 of the security guards and left for dead in the nearby woods.

As to the fun activity of stalking, I must confess to being a profile fiend. I constantly look at other Downers profiles for more information on them.

I think everybody kind of stalks their "favorite 'Downers" so to speak... I mean the people whose posts you most enjoy. Nothing sinister, of course. I've recently started stalking Eomer of the Rohirrim. His tricksy appearance being so hard to pin down, I thought to read more of his posts and see what I could learn, which brought me to THIS thread, coincidentally.

I follow Keeper of Dol Goldor around, because I've spent 16 years trying to figure out how his mind works, and I still can't figure it out. I even know where he lives! Mwahahahahaha. And his mother's maiden name. Mwahahahahahaha. Actually, the fact that he's my brother and I live with him (most of the time) and have the same mother... kind of negates the stalker-creepiness level.

As for others I follow around occasionally, The Saucepan Man, HerenIstarion, I used to follow LePetitCheaux a lot, but now we're rarely on at the same time... Once in awhile, if I see that the "Newest Member" is on, I'll follow them around and see what they get up to.

Fea

Edit: yes, Eomer, sleep easy once again, knowing that it is I, and that my sole aim is to make sure that when Biff falls asleep, you don't remove the straight jacket.

Lately my mind has been at discomfort, constantly feeling that someone is following me, ready to pounce whenever I make one tiny mistake, and I'll be forced to look into the eyes of my stalker in cold blood and scream "NOOOOO!!!!"

Now I know its you Feanor, so I can rest easy now.

I stalk mark12_30, Nurumaiel, Aman, Bethberry, Fordim Hedgethistle, Durelin...

But then occasionally someone on "Who's Online" digs up a good thread to read, so I really enjoy that feature.

I wasn't a stalker until I read this thread...Now I've stalked Lalaith and Evisse the Blue. Both found me some fun threads. So I think I shall go stalk some more...

Oh dear...now I'm stalking just about everyone that's on when I am...

Gah! *Hunted expression* And to think I trusted you, Aylwen! Oh, shame!

To be fair, I return the favour - Aylwen is one of a variety of people I sometimes 'stalk'. Imladris is another major one, as is Bethberry.

Dang, we need an evil smiley...for now, Mr-hat-bong will do...

I've been stalked..wow, I feel so special. Now I have to be extra careful, which thread I go to, knowing someone may haunt my every mouse click.
I must admit I've become much more of a stalker lately. I hang around on the main forum and wait for interesting threads to be brought to my attention by my 'victims'. I stalk lots of people, almost everyone is a potential 'stalkee'.

I do that too! And yours is a most entertaining one, by the way.

I don't really use Who's Online that much, but I do like to check out the "find more posts by [likely 'Downs member]" and peruse the snippets listed there to see if there's anything I'm interested in. It saves time opposed to combing the forums.

Silmaril The Nearsighted Elves Society

This reply is sooooo late. I'm sorry, HI.

Yes, the Society is for Nearsighted Elves (and Halfelves too, like me). But I think we have been welcoming even those who are not myopic nor Elves. It was Maeggaladiel who founded the Society, and it has been growing. You can PM her or Eowyn Skywalker (I guess) if you desire to join.

I once posed as one such Elf in order to infiltrate the society but I was caught and beaten by 3 of the security guards and left for dead in the nearby woods.
Eomer, you've got to be kidding. Wait, I was probably one of those who beat you up.

Well I'll admit I stalked luthien- elvenprincess for a time because she was the only one playing my cryptogram game, and I was always waiting for a new crypto or her repsonse to mine! I like to look at people's ages too (if they give them). If you all remember Finw (how could one forget) she turned out to be 16! That surprised me, I thought she was older.

That's true Bombadil, I am often surprised at the ages of other Downers.

Thanks Diamond, my profile really does capture the essence of my character almost perfectly. I enjoy reading your profile too, its very funny.

Lhunardawen, can't you remember? Or do you often have spies snooping around your headquarters?

Ooo.....I'm stalked by Aman.

I freely admit that I stalk Bethberry, Fordim Hedgethistle, and HI. In fact, I remember staying up later than I would have last night waiting for a post of Bethberry's...

Cheers,
Imladris

Hmm, I've done that before as well Imladris - not for a long time now, but last Summer sometime, when I really had nothing to do etc, and I sat waiting for someone to post on an RPG.

Guess what? They obviously changed their minds and didn't post it! Gah!

Stalking? Interesting...
I do stalk a little, I suppose. I check profiles of people who have names I like the sound of, or make an interesting post. I haven't noticed the 'who's online' feature, but now I know it, I'm sure I'll turn into a full-time stalker.

I've not been a stalkee, not in the forum at least. I did have a stalker, but he wasn't a stalker, more of a person-who-talks-to-me-when-he-sees-me -even-though-we've-never-met. I have stalkers online, I think. The pesky critters...
