Getting to Know You
« on: June 13, 2012 (08:19 PM) »
So this is continuing the "Get to Know Your Fellow Members" game, and seeing as how it was really popular and lasted for 5 years (yes, it started in '07), I thought we could keep it up.

Rules are simple: Ask a question, and the next person answers yours and asks their own.


So, what do you think of the forum change?

I don't mind it. Gives us a clean slate to work with and room to build.

In your opinion, do you think arguing about the reset and the imperfections at this point is good in any way for bringing in new members?

The arguing itself? No.
If we can focus and figure out what we want and get along enough to follow through, I think we can find what we need.

Though, I think more important than bringing in new members is becoming a community that is welcoming and embracing to new members though still willing to listen when newbies scream, "BAD TOUCH! BAD TOUCH!"


What one change would you want to see on the board (which the staff can enact, no "everyone be nice to eachother" crap)? What positive and negative effects do you believe this change would bring?

No Karma system EVER. I think it'll make me feel a lot more comfortable to know no one is fapping to me.

Favorite muppet?

I don't watch that much animated TV nowadays except for American Dad! and Futurama.  Occasionally.

To those of you who live in cultures where tipping is customary-- have you ever stiffed a tip?  Be honest!  If so, what were the circumstances (like bad service)?

I've actually never stiffed a tip if I'm the one paying. I always give at least five dollars, and that's not even pushing it. Every time I go out to eat with friends, I'm usually the one paying, and my waiters/waitresses have always done their job right.

What band/artist do you find yourself listening to more than others currently?

Nicki Minaj' new album. Like I can't stop hearing it in my head. It's... yes, I know, I'm suuuuuper gay.

If you could partner up with one villain from any video game, who would it be and why?

Does Cave Johnson (Portal 2) count as a villain? He might have been bat-crap crazy, but you can't say he wasn't a driven individual. For Science!

An anime/manga/game/movie/book character that you found particularly influenced you? How so?

As a man with few heroes, it's hard to pick a fictional character that was strongly influential. However, given the nature of my ideas and plans for the future from the last number of months, I would have to point my finger at James Moriarty, from either the books or the BBC Series. Yes, I know some might groan at that, but to be fair (and possibly earn some horn-rimmed glasses for myself) I had learned of the BBC series quite a while before it became the sort of thing frequently ruined on Tumblr. A friend's mother had pointed out an apparent similarity between myself and a character within the TV series, and it caught my curiosity.
I suppose I just love the notion of a single feared-but-mostly-unknown figure pulling strings in the background, I suppose. Power and anonymity had always struck me as being mutually exclusive for some reason, so this was a nice reminder.

Would you be more interested in a fantasy-based story, or one involving hard science fiction?
Life is just a game, man. No, I'm serious. Some malevolent deity has trapped me in a game of celestial hopscotch. Please send help.

Well, I'd say antagonist for Chell, but definitely a villain for GLaDOS. Poor GLaDOS. Either way, it counts.

Fantasy, without hesitation, forever and ever.


If you could go back to any period in time and contribute one thing to history without altering the timeline in a major way, what would it be?

"It's OK to masturbate, folks. Nothing wrong or sinful about it, you won't grow hair on your palms or go blind, it's OK to have sex and not make babies too. And oil is bad, oil is evil... kill anyone who takes it out of the ground."

There's one person in your life who you know just needs to get laid. Who is it? Don't have to be specific, and you don't have to give names either... but who is that person and how can you tell they need to get laid?

Digimon_Sommelier. It's pretty obvious why.

What do you like with your pancakes and/or waffles?
