  • I am currently looking for more volunteers for the spotlight.
  • If you are interested in being in the spotlight (it's open to ALL members, not just moderators), feel free to pm me, I'll get you in a spotlight down the line.

(Yes, that's a psuedo Megadeth font)


What is Know your Gurus, you may ask?

It's simple, twice a week, a different person will be in the spotlight. When that person is in the spotlight, you can ask them

ANYTHING YOU WANT, even non-gaming questions!*

Spoiler



After that person's turn, their KYG thread will be locked and a new one will be started, with a different person. That means that if you don't get to ask your question in the 3-4 days the member is in the spotlight, you'll have to....... well, find some other way to ask them.


What's the point of this segment, you may wonder? To put it simply, to get to know each other better. Feel free to ask crazy or unusual questions. Heck, ask complete nonsense questions (Why did the brick build a cheeseburger?) if you want, just to see their response.


Please note that just because you ask a question, it doesn't mean that the person in the spotlight has to answer it, but they DO need to reply to it, so expect something, even if it's just a "I will not answer that". Despite this restriction,

you can ask as many questions as you want, but try to keep them in only one post.

Keep in mind that others have questions to ask too, so don't go too overboard on the number. Keeping it short of a dozen is just common politeness.


Also important, you may not get into dicussions with other members than the spotlight member. This segment is only to get whoever is in the spotlight to be more well know. If you're wanting to ask someone else something, you'll either have to wait for their own spotlight, or ask some other way.

I'd have to say either Master Chief or Soap MacTavish. I spent quite a bit of time with each growing up, and they've really helped shape me into the angry, blood-thirsty individual I am today.

Isn't he gay in real life? That said, I'm pleased to say that I have not been compared to him. Since, ya' know, I liek gurlz.

What made you want to become a moderator?

A burning passion to be more powerful than the average user.

I'd have to say the fact that I'm a badass. And I'm pretty sexy, too.

Ohai dere, I'm Shadok.

Do you consider apple juice to be a tasty beverage?

If I don't have a tastier beverage at my disposal, then yes.

Are we related somehow?

Not that I know of, but if you're looking for your dad I suggest you Google Odin based on your avatar.

Galactus, because as he hungers for planets, I hunger for power. Or Bella Donna Boudreaux, since we share almost the same last name and we both keep our pimp hand strong.

Do you play baseball? If so, where do you usually find yourself - first, second, or third base?
What's the best and worst thing about your gender?
In one of her songs, Beyonce writes "It's too big, it's too wide. It's too strong, it won't fit." What do you believe she's referring to?

No, baseball sucks. I'm a nerd, so I usually find myself at home. Alone. /endEmoSarcasm

The best thing would be the ability to pee standing. The worst thing would probably be the ability to get hit in the balls.

hello Shadok.

HelloooOoOOoOoo

are you a dog of cat person?

I prefer dogs, but I've had the same 2 cats since I was 7. They're pretty awesome, so while they're still around I'll have to say cat person. When they're gone, I shall make the transition to dog person.

who's your favorite singer/group/band

I like quite a few, but the only group I never really get tired of is System of a Down. Too bad they split up, though Serj Tankian was still doing some solo stuff for a while.

What is your favourite class/race in gw2?

Probably human/warrior, partially so that my GW1 warrior who put in all that hard work getting a full HoM can live on in spirit, partially because I play human warrior in just about every MMO in existence.

If some unforeseen circumstances cause you to never be able to return to your home, and your  future livelihood depends on it, what is the one thing that you must take with you when you are being driving out of your home?

I guess it would depend on the situation. If I were just being kicked out of my house, probably my glorious computer since my life and career choice somewhat revolve around my computer. If there were some zombie apocalypse, probably my rifle. Or a backpack full of food and water if applicable, if a food shortage is more pressing than zombie hordes. This, of course, is all under the condition that all living things in my home are safe and sound.

what feature on another person do you usually notice first when you look at them? ie, hair, eyes, lips etc

Depends on the person. I generally just take in people as a whole at first glance rather than focus on 1 thing. If someone has really pretty eyes, I'll notice that. If they have a really interesting hairstyle, that. I don't really focus in on a single trait at first glance.

have you watch The Hobbit!

No, though I really want to. The Hobbit was my favorite book when I was younger, and I've heard from a friend that the movie is great (despite quite a few poor critic reviews shortly after release). I'm definitely hoping that the trilogy will resemble even a splinter of what the book was, but I'll go in with low expectations just in case.

You are fooling yourself, user. Nothing here is what it seems. ANet is not the plucky hero, Guru is not an evil empire, and this is not the grand arena.

Because I was tired of my reports taking a week to be taken care of. That, and I just wanted an excuse to become your bestest best friend ever.
