Syntax: How did you come across WiiChat?
Prez: Well..Like many others, I was having trouble setting up my internet to work with the Wii.
Wiichat just popped up on google.
Syntax: Why did you choose the username Prez?
Prez: It comes from my actual name on the internet, TehOnlyPrez.
The origin of that though, comes from a stupid little inside joke from around grade 8.
Syntax: What would you say your favourite section on WiiChat?
Prez: That's a tough one actually..I like different sections for different reasons.
Syntax: Now Prez you can only choose one
Prez: lol..Well...If i had to choose only one, I would have to say the Site Feedback section.
I enjoy being able to help people out with their problems. But also teach others about the do's and don'ts of the forum..
Syntax: When i0n made you a moderator were you at all suprised or did you sort of expect it?
Prez: Well, if anyone would like to search through some of my old posts, they would see that I was made a mod because of a certain thread I made. I saw that WiiChat needed direction, so I convinced i0n that it would be in everyone's best interest to make me a mod. So yea, expected.
Syntax: What would you say is the toughest part about being a moderator here at WiiChat?
Prez: Probably the fact that it's so repetitive. Random people always think they are right no matter what, and you get into huge fights with people when you are simply trying to tell them that what they did was wrong. This happens every day and never changes.
Actually, although that part is tough, the toughest part may just be being able to take all of it, and not go mad on a power trip and ban everyone. You have to stay very subjective and not take things personally.
Syntax: Must be tiring. What would you say is the most enjoyable part about being a moderator here at WiiChat?
Prez: I would say the only enjoyable part is that there are actually people who understand what you do and why you do it. The repect factor ( as little as it could be sometimes ).
Syntax: Always nice to hear a thanks from someone here and there.
Prez: Of course.
Syntax: What do you see in store for WiiChats future?
Prez: To be honest with you, I was at one point excited for all of the new things that were promised for WiiChat's future. But due to reason's I really can't reveal, the future of WiiChat looks more bleak than ever right now. Of course that isn't to say that things cannot change.
On another note about WiiChat's future. I see plenty more rushes of members. Pretty much every major event brings around a new wave of members. We are the number 1 wii forum and I see our forum definitely getting bigger and even more popular as time comes.
Syntax: If you could change one thing about WiiChat what would that be?
Prez: Probably more interest from a certain Admin...Lot's of us have great ideas that would make the forum a whole lot better. i0n is great, and obviously very busy, but I feel a bigger involvment from him would help make the forum better.
Syntax: Thats for sure.
Syntax: Name one member on WiiChat who you would like to get to know better.
Prez: Gotta say no one.I'm a person who likes to keep my lives very seperate. Work is seperate from school, school is seperate from home, home is seperate from WiiChat, etc...
I'm there to moderate the site and that's really all I plan on doing.
Syntax: Other than posting on WiiChat what do you like to do during your spare time?
Prez: Well, I work about 5 to 6 time's a week, because it's summer. That doesn't leave much time for hobbies. During school, it's only about school. I do play sports when I can. I'm a soccer player. I also spend lot's of time on the computer ( productively of course ). It's going to be my career some day. I don't really know what else to say, I'm not a very exciting person.
Syntax: In terms of career what are you looking into?
Prez: I'm going into computers for sure. The aspect I'm looking at right now is what you could call 'Security'. I'm going to University for programming and a course called "IT Security".
It's basically what the less computer-savy people refer to as 'Hacking', although I don't like to call it that.
Syntax: Sounds interesting. What one word would you say describes you the best?
Prez: I don't really like describing myself like that. I prefer to let others judge.
I am what you see.
Syntax: Moving on.. random questions.. oh these should be fun
Syntax: Have you ever gone skinny dipping?
Syntax: Have you ever kissed a picture?
Prez: Not recently, but over the course of my life I'm sure I could of..
Syntax: Have you ever danced in front of your mirror?
Prez: Nope, not much of a dancer..
Syntax: Ditched school to do something more fun?
Syntax: There we go
.. Which do you like better.. Night or Day?
Prez: I would say my enjoyment is not really based on time..both can be fun
Syntax: Thats all folks. Thanks for your time Prez
