[MPGH]Hunter: Hi, Batman. How have you been?
[MPGH]Batman: Hey, Hunter. What's up? I've been great, how about you?
[MPGH]Hunter: I've been good too. Thank you for asking. So tell us, how did you stumble across MPGH and what made you stay on it?
[MPGH]Batman: I originally came to MPGH back in 2009 looking for Combat Arms hacks. I was extremely inexperienced in this kind of stuff and could never seem to get my hacks to work for some reason. I quit for about a year or two, but came back to the Combat Arms section to begin a short career in .REZ modding. Honestly, what made me stay on MPGH would probably be the General section. There's such a variety of people there that it never ceases to amaze me. In it, I found the heart and soul of MPGH, all the old and new members that actively keep MPGH what it is and has always been.
[MPGH]Hunter: I see. Well, yes, there's a colossal variety of people among the MPGH community, especially in the General section. If you were asked to create a Combat Arms Hack nowadays, do you think you would be able to make it, now that you seem to be quite more experienced in terms of coding and such than you were before?
[MPGH]Batman: Definitely not, unfortuantely. .Rez modding is completely different than the actual coding of hacks. Although I am a Minion+ of several sections and have to deal with reading code daily, my experience with coding is almost non-existent. My background as a Staff Member originally stemmed from becoming an Official Middleman and a Marketplace Minion afterwards, which in turn causes me to have a strong ability to moderate the forum content instead of writing/reading code well.
[MPGH]Hunter: I see. It's nice that you have mentioned that you are currently a Minion+. How do you consider that your journey throughout your time as a Staff Member has been? Also, how did you feel when you realized you had been given such a position? Extremely happy, I assume.
[MPGH]Batman: I first became an Official Middleman in 12/12/13 and I've got to say that my time as a Staff member has been a bunch of ups and downs. My time as an Official Middleman was lackluster and dull. I wasn't really ambitious and was also constantly trailing behind the other Official Middlemen. I didn't get demoted due to it, however. Eventually, the time came when I was demoted and had become a full-time Minion. Ever since then, I've been constantly improving not only my dedication and activity, but also myself, constantly striving to get better overall as a Staff Member. Attaining Minion+ was a goal that I've long wished to achieve and now I've finally attained it. However, now that I've achieved it, it's time to move onto my next goal, Head Administrator.
[MPGH]Hunter: Head Administrator? Are you admitting to want to throw Dave84311 off of his throne? On a serious note, hopefully everything will go as you expect. Alright, you have also mentioned the Combat Arms section. I'm guessing it's one of your favorite sections. Which other ones are your favorite sections? Other than Combat Arms.
[MPGH]Batman: I love all of my sections, they all mean something to me either in my career as Staff on MPGH, or my childhood.The very first actual section I received when I had become a full-time Minion was the Other First Person Shoot Hacks one, and my childhood has been filled with memories of hours of Maplestory, Combat Arms, and League of Legends. I also had invested a ton of time in APB:Reloaded which belongs to Other Semi-Popular First Person Shooter Hacks section which I became in charge of later on. I guess you can say that it was by the grace of Liz that I could have sections that are actually meaningful to me.
[MPGH]Hunter: Do you currently play any of those games as hobbies? If not, do you have any other hobbies?
[MPGH]Batman: I recently picked up League of Legends again. Other hobbies that I have are playing guitar, working out and going out (to parties). I also like to just spend time with my friends in general often.
[MPGH]Hunter: You play guitar as a hobby? That's quite an interesting one. Have you ever thought of making a band with your friends? I presume some of them also play guitar as well. Actually, have you ever been asked to play it in an event of the college you currently attend to or so?
[MPGH]Batman: Not really, probably because I consider it to be just a hobby that I like to do on the side. I have no intention of actually pursuing a career of any sort in the musical industry. I can also play violin and piano by the way.
[MPGH]Hunter: Making a band doesn't necessarily mean having to purse a musical career, and that's nice. Anyway, back to MPGH-related matters, do you think your life has been affected by MPGH in any way? Be it for the better or worse.
[MPGH]Batman: If I were to say one part of MPGH that has influenced my life, it would mostly be the Marketplace.
[MPGH]Hunter: Why's that so?
[MPGH]Batman: Well, it's because since I'm in college, I don't exactly have a lot of funds. Selling my Ebook and getting a bunch of nice freebies on MPGH has helped me live a more comfortable college life.
[MPGH]Hunter: That's good to know. Also, what do you want to exactly become once you finish whatever course you're currently attending to. How's it going, by the way?
[MPGH]Batman: I was thinking about majoring in MIS or Finance. College is going well, I'm classified as a Junior in my freshman year.
[MPGH]Hunter: "As long as you're happy with your choice, that's all it matters." Okay, time's running up. Before we end this interview, would you like to do any shout-outs to anyone in special?
[MPGH]Batman: Shout-out to me. That's it.
[MPGH]Hunter: It was a pleasure to interview you. Have a nice day!
[MPGH]Batman: You as well.
