You also moderate while at work. And this is why you moderate more than you play. :D

Yes, and the nearly 2000 hours I've already played in the past means I get that look from my wife whenever I turn on the game... (understandably, of course)

Probably most resemble the craft builder I s'pose.  I would've left of "epic" though...

Epic is for the folks that get 300 craft d/l's a day cuz they've mastered social media...  or build Ferrari's with RCS thrusters.

I refuse to be quantified or categorized. But that on itself can be a stereotype. Damn. :/

You are absolutely right. I have edited the stereotypes to include "the normal player" that you described.

...eeesh, I barely have enough rep to qualify as a purposefully boring normal player.  Ah well, I'll go with "Abnormal Craft Builder" I guess.

I managed to avoid this problem. My partner saw my controller before agreeing to move in together. She knew what she was getting in to.

Personally either 8 or 11. Not sure though. Some stuff I make is cool, some stuff is a kludge.

What about those people who post "my game is crashing please help" and then never show up again.
