Usually I just follow the Shakespeare guide of protagonists and characters. Make an awesome person, and give it one big character flaw that will, as the story progresses, manifest itself in other parts of his personality. There; problem solved.
On the note of Mary sue. Well, I guess most people neglect what it is that makes a character more human. It is most probably a character they associate with themselves, based on their alter-ego. They won't intentionally make themselves a bad character trait. That Mary Sue is how they see themselves or see their alter-ego's. And can you blame a person with low self-esteem and who probably thinks everyone hates them and is on the verge of becoming emo? Nope, I wouldn't want a bad manifestation of myself drive me over that point! I'm far to happy at the edge
In conclusion, always base characters on other people. You can mock them more easily. And if you really have a desire to place your alter-ego in the story avoid being the protagonist.
It's still not coming through. Perhaps you'd best recheck your url?Quoth BeDaOrLiSeAr:

Thank you. I got that effect by playing around with a couple of photos I had made of tree branches.Quoth BeDaOrLiSeAr:

Not to me, you're not. If anything, you're a "newb" (note the different spelling).Sorry about the link in the cenaris quote: I am noob and I don't know how to quote two people.

From what I understand, at least in the circles I drool vacantly in, a "noob" is a troll who obnoxiously acts like a newcomer just to cause trouble. A "newb" is just shorthand for "newbie", a newcomer who is still learning the ropes. "Newbs" tend to be worthwhile even before they get up to speed. "Noobs" tend to be hardly worth the kick in the groin they deserve.
