Better Know An Admin

Posted by Black Six , Nov 17 2006 · 349 views

BZPower
It's time.

So, here's how it goes: You ask questions, I answer them. Anything BZPower-friendly is fine, though I reserve the right to not answer any given question. Questions of inappropriate nature will be deleted.

So tell your friends and let's get this started!

Don't think I can't read your mind. tongue.gif

Wow, I'm surprised that no one's done this yet.

So, how many hours a day do you spend on BZP, on average?

Yaaaay a ton of stalkery questions! I like asking weird stalkery questions!

1. What kind of movies do you like? Your favorite Monty Python movie?
2. What kind of books do you read. In particular, Asimov. What's your favorite of his?
3. How long did it take for being an admin to become normal? Has it ever seemed normal? Will it ever seem normal?
4. You're in college. Where are you going to college and what are you majoring in? What kind of things are you involved in in that? What is the eventual goal that you're working towards?
5. What was your favorite year in Bionicle?
7. Completely fabricate an entertaining explination about why you chose the moniker "Black Six".
8. Tell us about some of the more sordid and juicy "behind the scenes" secrets of BZPower that only you freaky admins know about.
9. What was your family like? Tell me about your mother so that I may think of something weird and Freudian.
10. Consider why I left out a number six in this list. Discuss.
11. If you were to start a rock band, what would you name it, and what would your debut album be called?
12. Postulate what the question to Life, The Universe and Everything would be, and why the Answer would be 42.

Okay my questions:

1) What are the nifty powers you and the other admins have?
2) Why did you choose your user name when you joined BZP?
3) Have meat balls ever invaded your school? You don't have to answer that. tongue.gif

On average I'd say I spend 2-4 hours per day, depending on how active you guys have been, and whether or not the server is acting up.

Yaaaay a ton of stalkery questions! I like asking weird stalkery questions!

1. What kind of movies do you like? Your favorite Monty Python movie?

I like all sorts of movies, mainly sci-fi and fantasy. Some of my top movies are as follows:
Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, The Shawshank Redemption, Red vs Blue, Catch Me If You Can, 2001: A Space Odyssey, The Matrix, The Butterfly Effect, Ocean's Eleven, Bourne Identity, Office Space, Indiana Jones, Kill Bill, Braveheart, The Princess Bride, Jurassic Park
Unfortunately, the only Monty Python movie I've seen is Holy Grail, of which I have large parts memorized. I've seen a bunch of Flying Circus episodes too, which were all great.
QUOTE
2. What kind of books do you read. In particular, Asimov. What's your favorite of his?

Again, mainly Sci-Fi and fantasy. At this moment (just put it down, in fact) I'm reading The Light Fantastic by Terry Pratchett. It's been a while since I've read any Asimov, but the one story that sticks out the most is Bicentennial Man, an amazing story.
QUOTE
3. How long did it take for being an admin to become normal? Has it ever seemed normal? Will it ever seem normal?
I'd say it took about three months to get settled in.
QUOTE
4. You're in college. Where are you going to college and what are you majoring in? What kind of things are you involved in in that? What is the eventual goal that you're working towards?

I go to Stevens Institute of Technology and major in Computer Engineering with a concentration in multimedia. This involves programming, hardware design and integration, networking, all sorts of things. I'm working towards my Bachelor's and Master's degrees in Engineering.
QUOTE
5. What was your favorite year in Bionicle?

I'm and old-folky in that regard, so I'd have to say 2001.
Where's question six?
QUOTE
7. Completely fabricate an entertaining explination about why you chose the moniker "Black Six".

That's not a question.
QUOTE
8. Tell us about some of the more sordid and juicy "behind the scenes" secrets of BZPower that only you freaky admins know about.

That's not a question either; but I'll humor you this time. Every Saturday we gather in a secret cave in Nebraska to perform ancient rituals to increase BZP's longevity.
QUOTE
9. What was your family like? Tell me about your mother so that I may think of something weird and Freudian.

My family is small and typical. Both my parents raised me to be the good boy I am now. My mom is a teacher.
QUOTE
10. Consider why I left out a number six in this list. Discuss.

I'm guessing you can't count. Kids these days...
QUOTE
11. If you were to start a rock band, what would you name it, and what would your debut album be called?

That's a tough one. I can't think of a good name, but our first album would be called, 'Do I Know You?'
QUOTE
12. Postulate what the question to Life, The Universe and Everything would be, and why the Answer would be 42.

That's an easy one: What do you get when you multiply six by nine (in base thirteen)?

QUOTE(Kopaka's Apprentice @ Nov 18 2006, 12:07 AM)

*Runs to Black Six's blog but misses and hits a wall instead* tongue.gif

Okay my questions:

1) What are the nifty powers you and the other admins have?

We can do anything on BZPower. We can add, remove, and change forums, modify every member's account, change how the board looks and functions. You name it, it's just a matter of if we want to do it.
QUOTE
2) Why did you choose your user name when you joined BZP?

It's the screen name I've used since about sixth grade, I'm very unoriginal.
QUOTE
3) Have meat balls ever invaded your school? You don't have to answer that. tongue.gif

In my former high school they did. That was a messy week. But not here in college, no.

QUOTE(Phyoohrii: Dark Hunter Hunter @ Nov 18 2006, 12:26 AM)

Why not? It's actually a pseudo-obscure sci-fi type reference. I'll leave it at that and see if anyone can figure it out.

Keep them coming!

OK, I've been kncking to ask a few questions, so here goes...

1. What do you play as in your HALO 2 profile, an Elite or a Spartan?

2. What is your favorite HALO 2 weapon?

3. What is your favorite vehicle?

4. Who do you think would win in an all out battle: Axxon or Brutaka?

5. Do you know the first 50 digits/decimals of pi?

6. If a tree falls down in the forest, and no one is around to hear it, does it catch on fire? *snicker*

7. Would you rather jump in a pit of burning charcoal or jump in a pit of hungry lions?

That's all I got, have fun!

Until someone observes it, the tree is simultaneously both on fire and not on fire.

Lions; quicker that way.

Why don't you ever call? You never write, you never call, you never write that you're going to call about writing...

What can I ask you that I haven't already?

Okay, here my questions:
1) Have you ever done Computer-Aid Drafting or Hand-Drafting in High school?

Yes, I took three years worth of drafting courses in high school doing both hand-drafting and CAD using AutoCAD and Pro Desktop.
QUOTE
2) What's your favorite set, this year?

I'd go with either Jaller or Matoro, although Vezon and Fenrakk is pretty sweet too.
QUOTE
3) What were your classes in High School?

Too many to list here, so I'll just give you my senior year:
AP Physics C, AP Calculus BC, AP English Literature, AP Computer Science, Honors Biochemistry, Architectural Drawing, Computer Graphics, Gym/Health
QUOTE
4) Is it fun being an Admin?

Only when the members are well-behaved. wink.gif
QUOTE
5) Do you still buy Bionicle sets and books?

I still buy a few sets each year, I've never been into the books though, since they didn't exist when I first got into Bionicle.
QUOTE
6) Was High School hard?

Compared to college, it was a cakewalk.
QUOTE
7) Do you like where the storyline going right now?

I enjoyed this year's story, but it's hard to tell where we're going next year, so I can't say.
QUOTE

1. What would you say the dumbest thing you've done here was?

Every so often I confuse certain members with other members. Sometimes, when the other member wasn't what you would call a good roll-model, mistakes have been made. Oops! (They're all fixed now though.)
QUOTE
2. Do noobs count as people? (not to be confused with newbs, who improve and adjust over time, noobs are a constant annoyance.)

They count as people, just people who need to have some sense knocked into them.
QUOTE
3. Boxers or briefs?

Boxers.
QUOTE
4. Who framed Roger Rabbit?

Kex, it's always his fault.
QUOTE
5. Did you ever watch Batman: The Animated Series, or Batman Beyond?

I have seen episodes of both, I tapered off watching most cartoons in the first season of Beyond, so I don't remember too much.
QUOTE
6. What are your thoughts on Pridak?

I think it was a silly decision on Lego's part, but at this point we'll just have to wait and see what people in general think.
QUOTE
7. If a woodchuck could chuck wood, how much wood would a woodchuck chuck?

About eleven slugs worth.
QUOTE
8. If a tree falls in a forest and nobody is around to hear it, does it make a sound?

According to quantum physics, there is a chance that it makes a sound and a chance that it does not. Until the event is observed, bot possibilities exist coinstantaneously.
QUOTE
9. What sort of music are you into?

Mainly classic rock, but I enjoy a wide variety, including some metal, modern rock, classical, instrumental, folk, jazz, etc.
QUOTE
10. Do you like this year's playsets?

They're an improvement over last year's for sure.
QUOTE
11. Have you bought any other Lego product besides Bionicle recently?

I bought some X-pods over the summer.
QUOTE
12. What got you hooked on Bionicle?

The story, the collectibles, and the 'cool' factor. The website and MNOLG didn't hurt either.
QUOTE
13. Did you like or dislike the 04-05 flashback storyline and its sets?

I had no problems with them, I thought it was an interesting way to tell the story, but it worked.
QUOTE
14. Do you ever just sit back and ask the universe the age-old question of 'Why?'?

All the time.
QUOTE
So I hope you have more time to be around and do stuff soon, and thanks for being so friendly and answering everybody's questions.
