Do you pick any random Mod to Interview or something?

Nope! Ayrus was nominated!

You should interview Aerohill, Owner of Road Less Traveled

As of currently, I’m not taking nominations because I have been extremely busy! I will add Aerohill to my “Will get too later” list :P. Thanks for the nomination!

Interview No. 15
Interview by: Thomas
Interview Date: Thursday, May 21st, 2015
Interviewee: Ayrus

Welcome Ayrus! Today’s guest is a moderator that resides in the Barrens Chat & Atlas Park chatrooms!

Interview Questions:

Q: What are your hobbies?
A: Mostly reading. My work has become my life and I tend to be doing a lot of biochemistry research, but it is interesting. Otherwise, I tend to cook quite often as it is very calming for me.

Q: If you could travel back in time, where would you go and why?
A: Probably go back to myself as a teenager and tell myself a few potholes to avoid in life.

Q: What motivates you to get out of bed in the morning?
A: Knowing that I am working toward a brighter future in this bleak present.

Q: If you could, would you relive your teenage years?
A: Only if I could retain the knowledge that I had now. Otherwise, no. My teen life was pretty unmemorable.

Q: What has been the toughest decision you have had to make in the last year?
A: I am soon to make one. I have been contemplating moving to another city for my work but haven’t decided yet.

Q: What was your favorite childhood television show?
A: I never really watched tv when I was younger so I can’t really say I have one.

Q: Where do you view yourself in the next ten years?
A: Hopefully working as a doctor in a medical lab.

Q: What is your ideal house pet?
A: All of them. When I was younger, I dreamed that I would have a menagerie of animals in my home.

Q: Being a moderator, do your duties every become frustrating or difficult?
A: They become a bit difficult when people I assume are friendly start to use my kindness to their advantage and break rules. But otherwise, not really.

Q: You have just been awarded a lifetime supply of any item of your choice! What you would choose and why?
A: Money? Can I choose money, because if so, I’d go with that. It would make a lot of problems go away. Otherwise, I’d say printer ink cause that stuff is more expensive than gasoline. >_<

Thank you so much Ayrus for answering the questions!

Posting for major props and kudos but not only that I wanted to say that your 14th interview that I just read was absolutely fantastic. It showed a lot more growth and development in the questions that were asked and the natural transitioning of the conversation within the interview. Overall it seems to me that you’re definitely getting more comfortable and finding what’s working best for you and I say just go with it.

Other main reason I posted here:

Thank you so much MmeBunneh! To be honest, I’m trying to decide between sticking with one template or always switching up the questions like I do. What do you think?

Interview No. 14
Interview by: Thomas
Interview Date: Saturday, May 16th, 2015
Interviewee: moorsy

Welcome James! Today’s guest is a moderator of the chatroom THE!

Thomas: I hope you’re having a fantastic time today!
James: I’ve just woken up. I haven’t really done anything yet, but I hope I’ll have a fantastic time answering these questions! I hope you’re having a lovely day, and that extends to you, oh enigmatic reader. I’m watching you. I know you’re there. Say hi or something… Please?

Interview Questions:

Q: What is one thing you that you feel needs improvement within you life?
A: Just one thing? I was going to pick self-deprecation, but that gets a few laughs, and I’m not sure which way the “improvement” would go… so I’d say the main thing that needs a major improvement would be my ability (or lack thereof) to answer interview questions. That or the overabundance of commas in anything I write.

Q: How do you handle stressful situations?
A: I don’t; I generally just ignore everything stressful. Of course, if trying to ignore it only makes it worse, then I’ll do something about it. But that’s rarely necessary.

Q: Why did you join Kongregate?
A: Waaaay back when, I was playing Frantic on some other, probably lesser, site. Then I found (somehow) that if I played it here, I’d get badges to show off my ability to play a game. It’s not really an epic tale of wonder and woe, but hey… Also, looking through my earned badges, I didn’t get Frantic’s ones first, so that doesn’t add much credence to my story.

Q: If you could relive the last five years of your life, what would you change?
A: I wouldn’t change a thing. The stuff that’s happened (good or bad), or that I’ve done (likewise), have shaped me as a person. I like who I am now. I’d only change my decision to relive those five years at the end, because I don’t want to be trapped in an infinite loop and I want to make a plot hole that can be fixed in the sequel to this story.

Q: What is your biggest weakness?
A: I’m really, REALLY bad at picking up heavy things. Houses? No. Cars? No. Boats? No. Anything heavier than a small cat? Probably not. I’m really weak. I tend to think my way out of heavy lifting. Or use some form of pulley system.

Q: Where do you view yourself in the next five years?
A: I usually view future me in a handy dandy crystal ball. It’s foggy (that either means it IS foggy or I have a bad connection). I’m wearing dark clothing. I appear to be holding a briefcase or a handbag with something big and rectangular in it. I’ve just made eye contact. He’s noticed me. Abort! Abort!

Q: What motivates you to get up in the morning?
A: My alarm. If I don’t get up, it’ll keep being noisy. Then, since I’m up anyway, I might as well be productive or go on Kong. I tend to go for the latter.

Q: What is your favorite hobby?
A: My favorite hobby is annoying people on the internet. Very closely followed by video games. So, I guess, Kongregate’s the perfect website for me.

Q: Do you lean towards being introverted or extroverted?
A: I don’t exactly “lean” towards introversion so much as reside there and look askance at anyone who comes nearby.

Q: As a teenager, did you ever receive the TALK? If so, how did it go?
A: As a teenager, I was talked to a lot. Mostly in voices that exude thinly-veiled anger or disappointment at my continual not-doing-stuff-when-asked. Out of all the talks I pretended to listen to, though, I don’t remember there being the fabled TALK that people talk about, but I do remember reading about it on the interwebs: birds fly south in Winter and the bees are dying out. The internet really saps the glamour out of things.

Thank you so much for answering the questions!
