is my old forum twin tip directional or true twin?

old peter line fear and loathing 155.. marked as "twin tip"

is this directional or true twin?

the premarked stance position on the binding mounting area (slider system) has a bit of setback.. don't remember exactly how much but probably 3/4" to 1". does this indicate that the board is meant to be ridden with setback/is a directional twin?

i have it set as centered stance at the moment but wondering if i am doing something i shouldn't

If the ref stance has a setback you can be pretty sure that it's not a true twin.

Yeah, setback stance would indicate directional to me. Frankly, I ride a very directional board and while the tail is noticeably shorter when I'm riding fakie, it doesn't bother me... For a park board I'd want a true twin though.
