... when you realise that your 'time spent online' counter is perhaps better expressed in terms of months rather than days.

When you start thinking 'Hey! Didn't somebody ask that question about 6 months ago in the 'pick thread title' thread'? And then you start searching for ancient posts so that you can pass on the accumulated knowledge. Grin

When your SteamPunk persona has become so dominant that you actually attempt to build a Tesla coil, a zeppelin, or a mini-Nautilus out of the junk cars and old appliances strewn across your yard.  While in full costume.     

Wait-- maybe that's how to identify a blue collar steampunk.  Guilty, guilty.  Besides, my work clothes aren't a costume.

Oh, and the mounds of broken beer bottle glass on the porch shimmer so vividly and mesmerizingly in the moonlight that aeronautics becomes possible sans zeppelin.

Oh god!  Just ask any of my friends and they'll tell you, when steampunk is mentioned, so is the phrase, "There's a thread of that on the forum and they say..."

This happens to me a lot, actually. The rest of my life has found it's way onto BG in more than a few suprising manners!

And, another:
When you plan vacations around the opportunity to spend time with people you've met via BG. (There was a very nice evening at The Edison with Sprocket and Sk1n, the soon to come trip to visit Sgt.Major Thistlewaite, a hopeful trip across the pond, and the constant temptation of a certain favorite canadian of mine...)
