Some Boarders have names that correspond with the names of their agents, such as Techno-Dann. Others, such as Tungsten Monk, have a completely different name on the Board. Still others do not have agents at all, but are there to provide support, mock badfic, and, according to the PPC Constitution, "natter endlessly about everything from our favourite canons to apple pie. Mmm, pie...".
While posts on the Board should be proof-read before hitting "Post," typos still sometimes occur. Despite not exactly being canon characters, a misspelled Boarder's name will, in fact, produce a mini-Boarder.
