I am a Pisces and betrothed to a Cancer, so I feel quite at home here.

I'm a Leo...hear me roar! Although I am rather tired today, so perhaps I'll just sit here and purr quietly.

Hee hee! :lol: Can't believe I'm gonna throw my 3 or 4 cents in here but what the hey: BTW, I agree Candy - while I am new to the OT site - tunnel vision for a bit - I find this side of the forum most enjoyable and not nearly as stressful. Ok, I'm a Capricorn, smartass to the bone dob 1/6. I forget what famous person shares my b-day, but two folks I DO know that share a close b-day: Elvis Presely and David Bowie - both Jan 8. Woo-hoo!

Ok, that's me :wink:

Okay, I confess, I'm a newbie who only checked out the DVD forum.... until recently that is!

I'm a Cancer, I'm engaged to a Taurus, and I'm going to marry him in about 12 days. And I love Buffy too. Can't wait to see what else happens this season, and on Angel too, of course. I think Angela could have wound up with Brian or else somebody else altogether. I loved Jordan too but I think he might have been a bit of a phase for her. I thought Brian and Angela had great chemistry. I love that we (the fans) got it released on DVD. I'm really enjoying watching it again.

Welcome to Life outside the DVD forum! Always glad to have more people talking about stuff besides how much we hate AU.

Thanks candygirl! I'm having fun checking out the rest of the forums. :oops: I'm a little embarrassed it took me so long.

Better late than never!

I love the other forums here. Whenever I got stressed or annoyed or angry about the DVDs, I started reading stuff in the other forums to remind me why I like the MSCL forums. Our members are so cool!

Wow, there is a whle 'nother world out here.

Anyway, about the Xander thing. I think it would be fitting for him to kill Spike. First of all, and this was a glaring plot hole IMO, there is no way that Xander agrees to live with Spike, given that he's slept with the girl he loves, tried to rape her,and then slept with his fiance. I didnt buy that for a second.

I really think that Joss would have killed off Spike earlier, but he's turned into quite the fan favorite. And thye are running out of male characters as it is.

The Spike with a Soul is just not working for me. I think it interferes with an otherwise strong season. Face it, no matter what spin is put on it, will never be as compelling as Angel was initally, and will always feel like a re-tread.

The tally so far

Just keeping track...

3 Pisces
2 Cancer
2 Leo
2 Sagittarius
1 Scorpio
1 Capricorn

(The Scorpio is Fnordboy, who mentioned it in another thread.)

Well, that's not a huge statistical sample. but 'tis a start. Water signs lead, with fire well represented. No air signs as yet...

I could check everyone's profiles for birthdays, but that would be, like, work. :)

I wrote a little script which gets the list of birthdays from the forum database and calculates the astrological sign:

[sign] => count

[Cancer] => 7
[Taurus] => 8
[Libra] => 9
[Sagittarius] => 9
[Scorpio] => 9
[Capricorn] => 9
[Gemini] => 10
[Aries] => 11
[Leo] => 11
[Pisces] => 13
[Aquarius] => 15
[Virgo] => 15


And here's also a nice statistic about the age of the forum users:

[Age] => count
[13] => 1
[16] => 2
[17] => 5
[18] => 5
[19] => 6
[20] => 15
[21] => 9
[22] => 11
[23] => 14
[24] => 9
[25] => 7
[26] => 9
[27] => 5
[28] => 8
[29] => 1
[30] => 4
[31] => 2
[32] => 3
[33] => 1
[34] => 1
[35] => 2
[36] => 2
[39] => 1
[40] => 1
[41] => 1
[57] => 1

:o Wow, talk about user-friendly! Less than two hours after I off-handedly mention the idea, and Sascha has already compiled the data. Thanks! :D

I went ahead and sorted the numbers by various astrological categories, though as you can see they are fairly evenly distributed across the spectrum. Only the threefold principle shows a slight trend away from the Cardinal and toward the Mutable. We can assume a small margin of error due to incorrect profiles and birthdays on the cusps, but I doubt that would change the data very much.

Total: 131
(I added data for five users, myself included, who posted their signs but do not list a birth date in their profiles.)

[sign] => count

[Aries] => 11
[Taurus] => 8
[Gemini] => 10
[Cancer] => 9
[Leo] => 12
[Virgo] => 15
[Libra] => 9
[Scorpio] => 9
[Sagittarius] => 9
[Capricorn] => 10
[Aquarius] => 15
[Pisces] => 14
  • Fire: 32
  • Earth: 33
  • Air: 34
  • Water: 32
  • Cardinal: 39
  • Fixed: 44
  • Mutable: 48
  • Masculine: 66
  • Feminine: 65

Nostradamus, I was surprised to see the males slightly in the lead here. While there is obviously a fervent male population who post on a regular basis, I didn't think the numbers were that high. MSCL certainly bucks the trend of numerous other fandoms that tend to be predominately female, and I love that there is such a good mix of genders here. It definitely heightens the discussions we have.
