Alternating Alts: Day 5

Today I return from my long weekend off with Day 5 of Nev's Goldmaking Challenge.  Nev recently released a post with everyone currently participating in the 20 Days on her blog.  Lots of interesting responses from around the gold making community, so be sure to check them out!

Today the prompt is Do you keep the same banker alt or do you change them up occasionally? Why?

Mainly Mains
My main posting toon is always the character I'm currently focused on in game, and right now it's my 90 mage.  I play end game on my mage, and 9 times out of 10 I would log this character even if I wasn't going to make gold that day (which never actually happens).  Once in a while (and I feel like it will be soon) I get the bug to either tank or heal, and I just have TSM Mailing forward my mail to that alt.  It's just easier for me to keep track of my auctions on a toon I spend time on.

Current Endeavors
Right now I am doing a bit of an experiment with my alts, and I'm liking it very much.  What I'm trying to do is spread out my glyphs, so that each of 3 alts can fit all the glyphs they are posting in their bags, so emptying the mail is something I can AFK through.  I was previously only posting glyphs from my glyph crafter himself, but this became laborious as I just hate sitting and running back and forth between the mailbox and bank.  It was made worse by the fact that I had to keep 3 classes worth of glyphs in a guild bank, and this method got old really fast.  I now have them across 2 alts, and just need some Inscription bags to get my 3rd alt running (this is the one time I really wish I had the only crafting profession I don't have maxed - Leatherworking).  Setting it up this way will just save me some time actually interacting with the game, as I can be here writing a post while emptying my glyph mail, not having to run to the banker and back every 5 seconds.  It will be a glorious day!

How about you, do you ever switch your posting alts around?  If so why?
