This is not a chit-chat thread. Just another way to get to know each other a bit better and it may help with my challenge thread. I'll leave it stuck for a few days so everyone has a chance to respond if they want to. Thanks.
I'll go first...
My fav color is burple. My 3 fav things are clowns, snowmen, and palm trees. And I like the colorful birds. They go so well with the palm trees.
Interesting...now let me think. I love doing huge foreign tutorials with 125+ steps and making a 900 x 600 image and then adapting it to a 600 x 300 forum sig set without distortion. Sometimes it takes me all day.
I love to co-ordinate the colors of my background with my tube and add text that pulls them all together.
I like to use images that are different, rarely do I ever use the same image more than once, except Myka because she doesn't seem to be making anything new.
I love beautiful images or cute things.
I do not like AC or even some images that are still considered g-rates but not AL rated LOL
Don't know if this is going to help you at all, but you asked and I answered
I love bright citrus colors - yellow, hot pink, orange, and lime green. I love anything related to summer - flowers, the beach, fishing, the ocean, fireworks, the 4th of July, especially watermelon and fruit.
As far as tubes, I do like hoochie tubes, but I am finding that I love those 3D poser type tubes a super lot too like the DAZ ones.
I love interest too - a glitter here, a wave there. Winking dolls creep me out, but that is just me. I like to have something moving because it catches my eye.
Color color color. I love lively tags!
I love making jewelry, reading and drawing.
I love tuts and challenges and scrap kits and tubes of all kinds!

Ditto Huronna except I do use tubes more than once, love the challenge and keep trying to improve its surroundings. I don't mind the AC tubes w/cleavage but I find the more liberal AC images and their sexy poses offensive. I think it's digitally abusive, frankly. Including those 6 pack ab images of men with sultry looks. Tasteless. Sorry, I'll get off my soapbox.
Ditto Anita's colors and throw in grays and blacks and all the shades of beige.
I also like making my very own backgrounds. I've learned so much over the years from all the tutorials I've done. Everytime I do one of those international tuts and I find the author doing something different, I marvel...make a note of the technique and experiment with variations of one particular plugin or setting. I just love doing that kind of creation. I also like to experiment with layer blend modes and opacity.
Interesting reading everyone's likes and the few dislikes.
I haven't got any favourite colours... it all depends how they are put together and if a tube is incorporated either to blend with the background colours or to POP. I love Goth/dark tubes but not gorey ones. Anna Marine and Zindy and Scarlet Gothica and Dark Yarrow and Enys Guerrera tubes are the sort I'm talking about. I luv animation (why I'm here lol) I do like cute as well, animals or people ... was so sad when Gorjuss closed her shop.
I also do those large tutorials but I do one the size they say and one 600x300 and adapt selections from the big one to fit the small one etc... yes it's probably silly making both but that way I can see what areas need to be selected etc. Sometimes I have to just copy and paste selected into my 600 x 300 canvas but I try to avoid that because it can distort and loose clarity. Anyways.... probably rambled on too much.....
I love all kinds of animals, (including Teddy bears, and beanie (ty)babies, etc.) some insects; butterflies, dragonflies, those lightening bugs (Fireflies), praying mantis, Ladybugs, the cutesy ones.
I love pastels, color if the Rainbow, holiday colors, not a fan of orange, yellow or black, except when it comes to sunrise/sunsets. I don't neon on black or hypnotizing colors white on black, except in some tags.
I love Victorian art and colors. I still think I should have been born during the 1860s... Love, love those dresses and hats..
I love Spring and Summer, early part of Fall where summer is still peeking through the coloring leaves. I prefer G-rated images, but sometimes I can be a little naughty, but don't like those extreme AC, SAC images. I prefer tasteful and prude like.
Love landscapes, poetry, castles, and gardens (as long as I don't have to plant them) I love angels, Pegasus, unicorns, and fairies, etc.
I love old fashioned things and antiques. I think that covers it... lol
May as well add my two pennyworth whilst I'm here.
Like: quirky, whimsy, vintage, unusual images; animation as in moving parts, not so much glitter
Colours: no one favourite but autumn and spring colours would be first choice; prefer fresh clear colour over pastels unless they are quirky vintage 'off beat'pastels or particularly beautiful together; I'm a sucker for the rainbow colours together.
Not sure about: anthromortic animals, some are OK others not so much and some just make me squirm.
Hate: Over the top aggresively sexual AC - I prefer subtlety; young style posers made to look sexy or any child like image given that'knowing' look or developed boobs drives me mad.
Don't know how Betty kept hers to just three!!

With thanks to all those generous tag makers here but I'm not using tags until I wean out the oversized ones.
This is really valuable information. So many times people don't fill out their likes and dislikes so you're working blind when you make something for them.
My favorite color is blue and then red and then purple. (Get it, blue and red make purple) My favorite subject is Asian whether it's a design or a tube but some Asian tubes are downright ugly but that's another story. I like simple backgrounds, nothing too complicated. I really like experimenting with effects and seeing what comes out.
Like Flagryl, I like to make my own backgrounds. That is really the creative part of making a tag, in my opinion. That's why I don't do those challenges. I don't like scraps, selections or templates. Another creative smotherer, again in my opinion.
I don't like posers because they look so artificial to me although Caroline D does a really good job. Wow, I'm really sounding negative so I'd better say something positive.
I love artistic tubes where it looks natural and don't mind a little cleavage as long as it's artistic but that's for other places where I might meet you.
I like tubeless creations, geometric or any other design. Clever animations are great and there are so many talented taggers here who blow my mind with their creations. Also, Angelika's and Betsy's things (can't remember what they're called
Like Diane, I'm an avid and fast reader. I have a Kindle and get books on line from the library. I haven't counted but I bet by counting the cd's I listen to in my car I "read" at least 10 books a month. I'm also a writer, not poetry, but mostly plays.
My life is fairly active but not nearly as much as people think. I spend many days at home, in my nightgown, enjoying the computer, tv and, of course, reading. So a lot of my social life is here on my forums.

Thanks to many of my fellow PSP/AS addicts for many of these tags

This is a very informing post thank you for starting it. I love every thing My favorite colors I love to work with black and red love to do tutorials but also like to do my own thing with them. I love animation, and have work real hard to learn other things besides the blink but sill haven't master much of the other I love all tubes and images and adore all tags made for me
The main thing on signature tags, they should be 600x300. I loved the 600x250 but i got used to the bigger ones.
I am not a burple person, and i don't like reds. I love green and blue in any shades ... and earth tones. I hate it when the proportions don't fit. And i don't like that a tube doesn't pop out because of a missing drop shadow.
This is such an interesting thread.... Great idea Betsy. Yup I too like burple. And red and black together.... Blues, brown and gold tones, earth tones I guess. I like critters and several ftu artists, but are too numerous to put down, and some of the unusual images that I have yet to figure out how to use. Love animation but have run out of mojo on what to animate lol.... Keep doing the same thing over and over again. Don't think the size of a sig is that important as long as the sig has love and creativity put into the making. I do make most of mine around 600 X 350, but that is MY preference.
As most of you know, horses are my passion; I own four of them. I love animals, obviously, and also have a rescue cat and dog. When the animals give me time off I love working with my hands - knit, sew, crochet, crafts. I also do a lot of photography. My favorite color is blue. I'll do pretty much any kind of tutorial, including vectors. I don't like AC. I like challenges. I love animation, cute, and teddy bears.
I love Hot pink purples blues and will usually try to find a contrast to the tube and a matching I love Fonts, have thousands of them. hence the redo of the laptop. Love animals,turtles mice cats dogs are more favored but love them all, not so much insects, except for the pretty ones caterpillars, butterfly's and such Like to animate but am trying to learn different things I do tuts but usally go off on a different track like Sinatra I do it my way! cant figure it out I go around it lol I love Myka, Jasmine Becket-Griffith. and a bunch others free to use and non I use my tubes more than once if I find or imagine something. I use kits sparingly. I like bits and pieces. I like cute, Odd, mild AC but do own a great few AC as I do make them for others that do like them. and there are ways to cover them up sometimes lol! Like Goth and emo. and Steampunk.
I draw, sketch,paint but it is hard for my to create on my way pad meant for drawing while on computer the new meds im on finally letting me back into what i love to do, love to read have a library which is temporarily being used as my granddaughters bed room. I write poetry which I don't share with others. It always amazes me what and how people animate am still very basic on that. But give me pencils and no animation there lol.
I seen the getting to know you thread, read all the posts but could not add mine so came here. I use an iPad Pro 99% of the time. I love all animals and crocheting, tattling, cooking, sewing and many crafts including PSP and animations. I loved my art classes in school and have created many pen and ink, oil, water color, scratch board and sculptures. I do collect good recipes and have to many cookbook, some were my great grandmothers too. I have had major computer problems so PSP and animations have screeched to a halt. I might love your creations but since the computer problems have caused such a problem I do not request any. I still admire the work you all do. Dislikes Halloween, all forms of hate, politics, nudity and green, any Demon stuff. I do not Hate anything except evil. My dad was a preacher if that explains things some. Mother wanted a boy first but got me. Dad took over raising me so I became quite the Tom boy doing things with dad, hunting, fishing and working on cars. I can take care of small vehicle problems but have quit major mechanics and only hunt with a camera now. I taught myself to cook since mother worked full time and from age 8 and up had to babysit my siblings and cook for them.
