The Official Semi-Whenever Baxil Reader Poll
I can't really think of much to say to preface this, except that I'm curious. I could easily do a spot check of my friends list and pigeonhole names accordingly, but what that doesn't get me is the demographic of my readers. (Or at least those with LJ accounts, which are needed to vote in polls.)

Poll #963562 Baxilian demographics

Where/how did you first discover/meet Baxil?

High school or college friend.
5(6.0%)
The oddly mislabeled phenomenon known as "real life."
3(3.6%)
Through dragon or Otherkin circles.
37(44.0%)
Through furry circles or at a furry con.
1(1.2%)
At a (non-furry) convention.
10(11.9%)
Through poly circles.
3(3.6%)
Through hiking circles, or due to the PCT hike.
1(1.2%)
Right here on LJ (via mutual friend or otherwise).
12(14.3%)
Stumbled across website(/TTU/Tlands Forums), and stuck around.
9(10.7%)
Other! (Explain in comments!)
3(3.6%)

SUPER BONUS QUESTION!!!

Clicky thing ...
3(3.9%)
Clicky thing?
10(13.2%)
Clicky thing!!
26(34.2%)


I haven't been writing much lately, so I feel like a "my life thus far" post might not be amiss. I'll try to prioritize one targeted at the largest demographic(s) unless a vocal minority speaks up in comments.

>_> It's amazing how something as small as a clicky thing can bring people out of the woodwork.

Where the hell do I know you from, Bax? I'm going to assume "semi-kindred decidedly-non-Otherkin Internet circles", but that's about as refined as guesstimate as I can offer. :-)

I recall it as a "Stumbled across website(/TTU/Tlands Forums), and stuck around", except in the other direction. I ran across antwon.com back in the middle of your three-year posting streak and, for no other reason besides you attracting good people, became a forum regular. It's grown from there.

alt.poly 7, in an elevator, where you discussed with deyo that you attended the same school and had a shared teacher, at different times.

Looks like I am the only one to stumble across your blog due the PCT hike. I can't decide if that makes me special ... or lame. :P:P:P

Don't feel so alone. If aknitwit answers the poll, she'll be joining you. (And she's also in your area, though I think a bit further west.)

Met you through Colonel Mustard, in the study, with the candlestick.

No wait, that was something else.

Sometime around the start of the September that Never Ended. Way to make me feel Internet old! ;-)

And hi back to Rasha. How goes? (Feel free to respond in own journal if you'd prefer a privater discussion.)

Do we really 'know' you? :P Who is this and what are we doing here?

Dazey says 'hi' too.

I seem to recall you were the tall, dark and handsomly mysterious stranger in the newsroom who swept me off my feet and and led me into a life a dragon-related sin.

If that was wrong, I don't want to be right.

I think it's more of a multiple sources deal. The very first time I ran into you was because you knew an Otherkin-ish buddy up in Seattle, but then I moved down here, and you started turning up everywhere fannish (mostly BayCon).

Who was the Seattle connection? I'm drawing a blank.

If you'd asked me, I probably would have said that my first consciousness of you is via Es, and I ummmm have no clue where she and I met, because *verbal breakdown* baycon/otherkin/poly/pagan/furry aaaaaah small world.

Ah, OK. Bree and I go way back to the alt.fan.dragons days.

But ... wow. I have actually been introduced to people in the context of being an artist?!?!!!1! *head explodes*

I'm a friend of tropism. (Okay, so Sev is still more Zibb's friend than mine, but these days, we're friends now too. I think. *grin*)

We met very briefly in person at Baycon in 2004. (I think it was Sunday night.) I was hanging out with aris_tgd in the hallway and you wandered into our circle. (I think you knew some of the people she was sharing a room with.) I mentioned my connections with Sev and Zibb at the time, but I don't know if you remember. Cons can get hectic.

The lack of an a.f.d option confused me until I looked again and realized it fits within "dragon/Otherkin circles."

Huh? I guess I can't answer a poll and leave a comment at the same time.

I was debating between two options. I first came across you via the Draconity Code at your old website, in '96 or '97, I think, but I never actually conversed with you until I started posting on AFD.
