When an author or writer puts themselves into a story they have written as a character.

It is not a character in which the audience inserts themselves or can relate to. It has absolutely no relation to the audience or readers. It is specifically referencing the creator's personal avatar.

Most stories written in second person are not self inserts.

Some creators will hide the fact that they use these characters by changing their names and a few details. Self Insertion characters are frequently not even the main character in a story. Author Steven King has done this in his books on occasion.

Video game avatars that the player creates could be considered a type of self insert character if the player tries to create an approximation of themselves for the game. This is borderline as the player is limited by the creation tools and game's storyline.

Another borderline example would be creating a Tabletop RPG character. Players are often free to create backstories and design their characters as they see fit, often mirroring themselves as they imagine they would be if they existed in such a world. Though again, the player is limited by game mechanics, the whims of the DM, and the roll of the die.
The author wrote himself into the story as a self insertion character.

A story in which the reader inserts himself or herself; this usually occurs within a fanfiction.
Most stories written in the second person point of view are self-insert's.

1. When dumbasses post their name with definitions, expecting millions of random strangers to just fall out of their chairs at their dumb inside joke.

2. When some pissed off dickbag misuses a platform, just so they can vent about someone they hate.

3. When some insecure fuck makes a definition of their name that's just compliments to themselves, so they can jerk themselves off to distract themselves from thoughts of how little they actually contribute to society.
I'm fucking sick of seeing these god damn self-insert definitions, everytime I go to vote. Who are you expecting to find this funny? What makes you think random strangers who don't even know what you look like are going to get this? Please for the love of god, keep your shitty self-inserts in fanfictions.
