While posting on another forum I came up with an idea to interview at least one well respected member and or moderator per week. Now I was wondering what you guys and gals think about this..
An example of one of my interviews:
Background Information: Helljumper
Location: Northern California
Gamertag: Helljumper 12
Aim: H2 Helljumper
The InterviewMatt: What got you into Halo 2 and video games in general?
Helljumper: As for videogames in general, I have to give credit to one of my uncles. I remember he let me play Pokemon Snap for hours on end. Those were some of my fondest memories with my uncle.
Matt: How about Halo 2?
Helljumper: As for halo 2, I picked up an Xbox late 2004, around the christmas season. Also with the xbox I bought Halo 2 and Xbox live in general through a friend's recommadation. I've been hooked ever since.
Matt: What made you choose the username/gamertag Helljumper?
Helljumper: Well, haha, I had just recently read one of the Halo Graphic Novels (I forget which one) and was looking for a good name I could use. I wanted to include something using spartan or John 117 (I wonder if thats his number, I forgot!!) but every combination I tried was taken. After awhile, I remembered how much I had liked the Helljumpers in the book. So I put
Helljumper but that did not work. Helljumper 12, which is my the name + my age at the end, was the ending result.
Matt: How did you come across H2F?
Helljumper: I think I've said this before, but I came across H2F doing a google search for "Halo 2 forums". H2Fs (Halo2forums) was down for maintence when i clicked that link, then I clicked the next link, H2F. I wasn't planning on staying for long, just till H2Fs opened up again, but then I read about getting money for posting. Hell, that offer was probably the only reason I stayed at H2F during it's early months. Then again, the new H2Fers made it a whole bunch easier.
Matt: So Hell how long have you been a member for at H2F?
Helljumper: On the 28th of this month, I will have been on H2F for 1 year and 8 months.
Matt: Almost two years. How does that feel?
Matt: Haha good answer
Matt: Moving on. If you could change one thing about H2F what would that be?
Helljumper: Hmm, I would have to say that I would get rid of the censor. I know that sounds extremely trivial and not important, but I am sure you have some idea of when curse words are..a neccessity. Some people just need to be cursed out, it's wrong not to.
Matt: I tend to feel the same way at times but I try to avoid it.
Helljumper: I would think that is a good thing, means you have a very clean mouth =]
Matt: You don't know me in real life so you might want to take that back =]
Helljumper: Haha, I guess I don't, though someday that may change.
Matt: maybe it will.
Matt: : Name one person off of H2F who you would like to get to know better.
Helljumper: One person..very limited pick, eh? I'd have to say Tyler (Nokturnal). We are on a talking base, we know stuff about each other, friends. Hell, we just played a 1v1 a few minutes ago. I'd just like to get to know him better, become an even closer friend. He is a really great guy once you actually get to know him. so he's not an ass to all those who might think that!!
Matt: He seems like a great guy.
Helljumper: Yeah, some people still hate him only because it used to be the cool thing to rag on Klug.
Matt: That's unfortunate.
Matt: One final question before I end this. What one word would you say describes you the best?
Matt: Thanks for your time, is there anything else you would like to add before I conclude this?
Helljumper: Nope, except I'd like to say thanks to anyone who's ever been a friend to me, your a great person for dealing with someone as annoying as me. Cya in the H2F Exclusives Matt.
Matt: Later Helljumper.
No.. What were you thinking?:
