The size rules appear in the Forum Rules: http://forums.animesuki.com/faq.php?...#faq_rules_3_0.

You should also take a look at the BB Code help file: http://forums.animesuki.com/misc.php?do=bbcode

In particular, the sequence [right]some stuff[/right] aligns to the right margin. Or, you can use the right alignment icon that appears in the toolbar above the composition window.

If you mean that your question was about the most popular size for signatures, I think the answer is "as big as they can be." That's why I pointed you to the size rules.

Why do anime characters have bangs (fringe for the non-Americans) by default, and the few who don't are oft known for their "large foreheads"? When in reality most people just wear hair back?

It has to do with the art style. Do you think it would look better the way it is now? or the way your talking about?

Just a random collection of photos, but not many Japanese people seem to wear their hair back.

For an odder collection of hairwear (and street fashion):
http://www.google.com/images?q=japan...w=1372&bih=808

But you're right in that it is a bit odd that it seems to be made so much of in anime. It isn't as if the exposure of the forehead is unknown.

I think that it'd be nice if some more anime folk had more common hairdos; it's a bit weird to have a character who supposedly doesn't care much about his/her appearance having bangs, for example (making sure bangs look good in the morning takes time ).

New question: who is the Administrator of Animesuki? As in, the Big Boss, the CEO, the Don, the (possible) Father or Mother?

Is is weird for people at my age to discuss worldwide sociopolitical issues at length? I find that even on and off this forum, the only people whom I talk to about G20, economy and political issues are often in their late 20s and over that, mostly 10-20 years older than me.

Anyone else around my age group (18-23) give me blank stares when I mention things like Tea Party, subprime meltdown, foreclosure, general elections, financial statement, gold standard, etc. So what would be a normal conversation topic for people around my age?

Most of all, you have to be disciplined and you have to save, even if you hate our current financial system. Because if you don't save, then you're guaranteed to end up with nothing.

I have bangs, and I don't care how they look in the morning. I just don't like then too short/long.

hmm...girls/guys, music, drinking stories...
I feel you. I'm not good at conversations either.
But there must be people out there who share your interests

Age do not really matter; you might find another 18-23 than have a interest about those thing and a 40+ thjan don't give a damn... For example, the chef and sous-chef where I work are about the same age, and yet I could probably have a good conversation about those kind of subject only with my chef.

If you want a 'real'' normal conversation topic, use weather, sport result or any others meaningless subject. But if you want a real conversation, first addapt your subject to the group, trying to talk of geopolitic with a group than was talking of the latest talkshow will probably end up as a fail.

You don't hang around nerds like I often do, lol. If I'd mention these things, they'd explain it to me in full, then wonder why I brought it up.

But in your case, I can imagine that your friends aren't up to date on American history (Tea Party), since I don't think you're in America. If you have all those other issues in your country, then I'm not really sure why they don't know, unless they're blissfully ignorant.

Nah I think its normal. At some point in time, even I've gotten into deep political conversations with even the least inclined people. Its interesting; I discuss it rarely with some people, and quite often with others. I enjoy philosophical and theoretical economic discussions too, it really happens quite often, and not a bad way to spend an hour or two over a beer or a joint.

At the risk of sounding elitist, it simply means that you are not among the niche group of young adults here who are actively interested in sociopolitical issues.

Back in my university days, international students at London School of Economics used to complain that the moment Singaporean students get together, they invariably talk about only two things: politics and national service.

Growing up, being a member of my secondary school and junior college's debating societies, I was constantly involved in verbal sparring over the rights and wrongs of government policy. As a literature, history and economics student, the topics up for debate ran the gamut, from the freedom of expression, the difficulties of judging right and wrong over subjective issues, the need to balance economic objectives with the need to achieve social justice, and so on.

Among the few friends I still keep in touch with regularly, I was once accused of being opinionated and argumentative. More recently, they now accuse me of being political correct for refusing, by default, to side with their decidedly anti-establishment points of view.

So, no, it's not weird to be engaged by such topics — there are people who love discussing such issues. But, most certainly, they make up only a very small minority. It's usually the case that people here prefer to avoid argument, as it usually generates a lot of hurt feelings over matters that most of us don't have direct control over anyway. So, why bother?

The thing is that, I tend to spot a very common topic : criticising others behind their backs. Granted that I do that from time to time, but practically every group conversation I have been in after I left the army has always been verbally attacking someone who's not present for most of the part.

I thought talking about national service is the norm for Singaporean guys wherever they are.

Actually, now that you have said that, I was wondering why people around me actively talk about others' actions and behaviours behind their backs when it is something they also have no direct control over. Maybe it is a "immediate concern" thing - anything that they can't see affecting them is regarded as harmless.

Maybe I should start hanging out with different people. Thanks for the answers guys.

You just choose poorly whom you stand around

I can head for the pubs around many of the better colleges and find plenty of 18-23 aged types who can discuss such things competently. And they aren't especially "nerd" (unless we're going to define *anyone* who intends to be successful as a "nerd" -- see the Intellectual/anti-intellectual thread).

On the other hand.... yeah, I see plenty of "blank stares" regardless of the age group.... sometimes I call it that "bread and circuses" stare.

The Human race has a kind of 80/20 split in cluelessness/clues -- your objective is to find others in the 20% bracket.

Speaking of 80/20, maybe the Pareto principle can be applied to human society. 80% of progress and innovation come from 20% of the population.

It amazes me how accurate that principle is in so many different, seemingly unrelated areas.
