What?! You're not a girl?!?!
No means no! Stop hitting on me! <.<

Haha, I would certainly take that trade. Its perplexing though that anyone thinks the name Ileia sounds masculine in the first place.
Back on topic though, I've actually encountered a lot of geeking out over other editors from people who are both really into AMVs and some who just know a few AMVs. I have a friend who showed me Scintilla's Dueling Videos: Under Ice AMV way back when I was still in college and it was one of his favorite AMVs. I mentioned how I just saw Scintilla (didn't get to meet him though) at AWA and he flipped out about it and how he thinks he is legendary.
To be honest, I was geeking out a little at AWA just seeing all these different editors. When Zarxrax started talking to me at first I was like holy shit, is this the guy who that x264GUI is named after!?! maybe I should give him a hug for making my compression/encoding needs easier. To my wife and brother I pointed out a bunch of people and was like "oh man, I think thats Ileia and Copycat over there" and "Snap, I think thats Vlad" lol. I was also super happy when I first arrived at the editor's meetup and I said who I was, and I think it was Kireblue who was like "I know who you are!" That made my day, cause I was thinking holy Kireblue knows who I am and he makes some awesome stuff! I hope to be back next year and take Pilk's suggestion and get a lot more mingling in though.
For the most part though, a lot of the geeking out seems to happen behind the scenes since its hard to know what most editors even look like unless they're super hardcore stalkers and found the picture thread on the org or something similar.
