Send a message via AIM to Viqsi
My own excessively verbose example follows. (I write a lot.)

Name: Jo
Nickname: Viqsi (pronounced "Vixie", as in "Viqsi wuvs Bloo Jaqts haqi"), plus an endless supply of aliases generously donated by mailing list vendors who don't comprehend hyphenated last names.
Age: By November of next year (or the year after, depending on interpretation) I will no longer be trustworthy.
Age you act: Early twentysomething. I'll probably never catch up to my actual physical age.
Sex: F, although my ID says otherwise (see warnings below)
Where you live: Upper Arlington, OH; renting rooms from my parents (it's cheaper and safer than, say, an apartment in Linden or something). Contrary to lies and slander regularly spread by JACKETfan, I do not nor have I ever lived in my parents' basement. (The basement of an extra property owned by my grandparents that needed a caretaker, on the other hand...)
Where you were born: Columbus, OH, at tOSU.
Where you used to live: Reynoldsburg, OH, and Bowling Green, OH - was at BGSU for a year and a half.
Nationality: 1/5 German Jew, 1/5 other German, 1/5 English, 1/5 Something From That Madness Zone South Of The Baltic (probably Polish or Russian), 1/5 random other. Vast majority of those are from the great immigration period prior to WWI, although there's a few here and there who've been here since the beginning (such as one Hessian soldier shipped over here by the British during the Revolutionary War who decided to stay). My father really gets into this stuff, so I get to hear a lot about it.
Height: I insist on listing myself at 5'11".
Weight: Heavier than I actually look, and I look very heavy. I really should do something about that sometime.
Mode of Transportation: 2004 Buick LeSabre, name of "DanV" (Fifth 'Dan', after three other close friends I know from all over the place (Cincinnati, Seattle, and Windsor) plus a fourth guy in Vancouver who's been named the honorary fourth). CBJ license plate - new logo, not the original, as I couldn't afford it back then.
Distinguishing Physical Characteristic (like if we saw you in the Rbar, how we'd know it was you): I am built like a D&D dwarf with a case of gigantism. Also, in the RBar, I'd be the one flinching every time someone takes a drink. (See warnings below.)
Job: General support staff at my Temple. I handle all the geek stuff - fix and set up computers, network and server maintenance, make and enter deposits, collate and report payroll, assemble and print newsletter, create and update website, print and deliver membership cards, print and deliver membership directory, et cetera et cetera et cetera. Or, as I've sometimes put it, "A/R, A/P, HR, and IT". I'd get better pay managing a Wendy's, but I like it here for some reason.

How you became a Jackets fan: The complete story is here, but for the most part it was due to listening to George Matthews on CD101 on long evening trips to and from Washington Court House. Never been hooked on anything so quickly in my life.
How much of a Jacket-Whacket Job are you: In addition to my usual title of being the Computer Person, I am now officially the Hockey Geek in the localities in which I roam. I scare people.
How you found HFBoards and why you keep posting here: Like so many others, Google search did the trick. And I like having fans of all teams in the NHL in one convenient space; it makes it easier to join forces with others against the morons.
Favorite Jackets player: Umberger and Vermette - both predating their tenures in union blue. Watching them play on a line together and have instant chemistry was beyond awesome. The second line pwns all.
Favorite non-Jackets player(s): So many of my old heroes have either depressed me (Heatley and Zherdev), left the NHL (Norrena), or joined the Jackets and thus become ineligible for this category (Umberger and Vermette). But Ty Conklin still occupies a special, inexplicable place in my heart. And I kind of miss Pazzy, so I'll be watching him this year. And any goaltender that knows how to move the puck is officially awesome.
Other NHL Team(s) You are Willing to Root For: Officially speaking, I'm barred from doing so, because nearly everyone else I know is a Red Wings or Predators fan. Unofficially speaking... well, when the Preds do well, it makes it that much more satisfying when we kick their *****. And I'm a bit fond of the Sharks, the Senators are pretty nifty, and the Oilers might be OK now that they've kicked that ******* Roloson to the curb. And any team that normally gets targeted by the "they don't DESERVE hockey" crowd usually gets my support.
Fav teams in other sports: Third-generation Buckeye Football fan, and I'm finally starting to get into Crew soccer (altho I still can't stand the EPL). (Regionalist? Me? What gives you that idea?)
Most Obsessive/Strangest Blue Jacket paraphernalia (souvenir) you own: Nothing really qualifies, really.
Section you usually sit in: "Usually" implies regular attendance. I can't afford to go to games that often. But it's always been upper bowl.
Rituals or superstitions you observe when watching or attending a game: I endeavor to always be in the Live Chat room. I've yet to pull this off during a game, but I will someday.

Music You Claim to Listen To: A whole hell of a lot of Canadian Indie Rock bands, as I have a friend (the aforementioned Honorary Fourth Dan) who regularly provides me with new ones. That and most things that might pop up on CD101.
Music You Actually Listen to: The aforementioned, plus bits and pieces of country, classical, some chiptune stuff, some prog rock (especially instrumentals), some strange world music, some fusions of the above (I love Dead Can Dance, if ever you've heard of them)... just about anything that doesn't involve repeating the same 20-30 seconds of backing track over and over and over.
Video Game Systems and Favorite Games: We own a Wii, although I hardly ever do anything with it. I had my heart broken by Secret of Evermore and may never truly love again.
Favorite Movie(s): Shawshank Redemption for audacity, Twelve Monkeys for braintwist, The Princess Bride for awesome, Munich for soulsearching, and The Fifth Element for shiiiiny.
Favorite TV Show(s): Generally, if it's not the NHL or NCAA football, I don't bother watching anymore. I've gotten too used to everything I enjoy either being cancelled or jumping the shark shortly thereafter.
Favorite Food(s): Just about anything with chicken is good. Cashew Chicken, Chicken Marsala, Chicken Parmesan, fried chicken, grilled chicken... omnomnomnomnomnom
Pets You Share Your Household With: My brother and sister-in-law have a cat who visits so often that Mom and Dad like to refer to him as their "grandcat", but otherwise we have no fuzzy critters here as yet.
Pirate or Ninja: ARR.
Other thing(s) we should be warned about you: Still a geek, still a transsexual, still a furry, still a teetotaler and almost but not quite modern temperance advocate. (Helpful warning: if you hear me using phrases like "purveyors of sin and vice", "the demon rum", or "devil water", or if I ever refer to any place as a "speakeasy", I'm joking. Really. ) I try to be pretty normal otherwise, despite having so little to work with in that area. I consider one of my largest life principles to be "Someday we'll all look back on this and laugh."
Also, I tend to ramble sometimes. But you probably already figured that out if you made it this far.

Name: Robin
Nickname: SnygGo, I've only got a nickname online, IRL I'm just called Robin, which is a shame, but I've never came up with a great nickname for "Robin". Maybe you guys can?

Height: Don't really know my height in feet, in Sweden we meassure the height in meters, and I'm around 1,8 meters
Weight: About 65 kg.
Distinguishing Physical Characteristic: I'd be wearing my Russell away jersey, and i'd be talking with my swedish accent, that's disappearing more and more.
Job: I've just began my senior year studying Tourism in High School, don't really know why I chosed to study that, it just happened. But my dream is still to go to the States and go to college, maybe somewhere on the west coast, and after that hopefully stay there and start a sportsbar or something.

How you became a Jackets fan: Well, I had been watching NHL from time to time all my youth, and then aroung 2005(?) I think, I was determined to start to root for a team. And I remember a morning before school, I watched the nights highlights from a couple of games, and I saw Zherdev's end-to-end goal against Chicago. I took that as a sign, so here I am 4 years later and the Jackets are one of the most important things in my life right now.
How much of a Jacket-Whacket Job are you: Don't really know, but my friends are getting pretty tired of me plattering about the Jackets all day long.

Favorite Jackets player: That would be Brassard, he's just amazing to watch, we'll just hope that he stays out of the fights this year.
Favorite non-Jackets player(s): Zach Parise.

Fav teams in other sports: Tottenham Hotspur, and Malmö Redhawks here in Sweden.
Most Obsessive/Strangest Blue Jacket paraphernalia (souvenir) you own: I don't think I have one of those, maybe the clock I got with the Jackets logo on it. Just because it has never worked, but it has been hanging there on the wall for a couple of years now.
Section you usually sit in: Oh I wish I had a answer for this question, hopefully in the future
Rituals or superstitions you observe when watching or attending a game: I usually play a few games on the Xbox before the game, and when it's gametime I put on my Russell jersey!
Music You Actually Listen to: Punk/rock, got lots of favourite bands but the absolute favourite must be Sum 41, hands down.
Favorite Movie(s): The American Pie movies comes to mind.
Favorite TV Show(s): Entourage, Band of brothers, The war at home, friends, Lost.
Favorite Food(s): Pancakes and waffles for the win!
Pets You Share Your Household With: One border collie.
Pirate or Ninja: This discussion is actually in a movie I just watched, It's called Sydney White, and they decided that a Pirate combined with a ninja would be the coolest thing ever!

How you became a Jackets fan: Actually a (recovering) Sens fan. Have some invisible friends (they're real you just can't see them) from a different Message board who are Jackets fans. Always like the team and fans. Moved to Columbus a year and a half ago and as my Sens implode around themselves (and since two of my faves are here now), the transformation is almost complete. Once they trade Heatley and/or leave Alfredsson captain, they can eat my shorts.
How much of a Jacket-Whacket Job are you: Jackets specific, above average. But I am a hockey nut. Started playing when I was 5 and outside my brief foray into BMX, it's the only sport that has ever mattered to me. Well, and golf.
How you found HFBoards and why you keep posting here: I don't post here much. Especially on the Sens board because if I state my true opinion, the Sens fans get all twitchy and order me to say seven Hail Alfies.
Favorite Jackets player: Mason, Nash, Umbergler, Vermette, Commodore. In fact, I'd love to find out where Commo hangs out so I can ask him if the locker room in Ottawa really sucks as bad as it appears to. I am just afraid that if I identify myself as a Sens fan, that he will knock my teeth out.
Favorite non-Jackets player(s): Heatley, Iginla, Chara
Other NHL Team(s) You are Willing to Root For: Everyone except the Rangers.
Fav teams in other sports: Colts, Orioles, anyone who beats the Ravens.
Most Obsessive/Strangest Blue Jacket paraphernalia (souvenir) you own: I have a Blue Jackets lunch box.
Section you usually sit in: I was all over the place last season trying to find a spot I liked. And except for the drunk guy who fell on my daughter during the "Spandex Bimbo Pizza Toss" I always had a great time.
Rituals or superstitions you observe when watching or attending a game: I am a goalie, and my superstitions are beyond normal.I couldn't possibly list them all.

Music You Claim to Listen To: Anything
Music You Actually Listen to: I REALLY like CD101.
Favorite Movie(s): Shawshank Redemption, Quiz Show, Miracle
Favorite TV Show(s): Top Gear, The Office, Hockey Night in Canada
Favorite Food(s): Pizza, Mexican, Steak. And just about every wing joint suggested by the good people here.
Pets You Share Your Household With: Two of the dumbest cats ever known to man.
Pirate or Ninja: I have a nametag from an Info Security Summit that a peer customized with the phrase "Packet Ninja". I always felt more Pirate though.
Other thing(s) we should be warned about you: I have, on occasion, tailgated people so aggressively that that started to cry. I'm not proud. But I'm usually not late either.
