Asandir's interviews with Newgrounds forum users

This week's interview features the user Maltos.

When did you find Newgrounds and why did you join? Why did you choose the username Maltos?

Maltos:

"I found Newgrounds when I was just a youngster in grade school. I was sitting in computer class when the fellow next to me says to me "Hey check this out, it's called Newgrounds ". At the time I had never heard of NG but with all the art, games and movies I was hooked. It was also the power of voting on submitions that I respected. Tom Fulp created NG to be many different things but it's the freedom of speech and the community that I love the most.
As for why I chose the name Maltos, it is the name of a character in a series of novels I've been writing for well over 7 years. He is a complex character but I relate mostly to him because he always wanted to find what was real not just what he had been told. It's the reality around him that he can always see truth and he always makes the greater good choice even if the action is that of great darkness."

Do you think that you changed over the time you were here, as user, or also in real life?

Maltos:

"Back in the early days when I discovered the forums I was awkward and I always said the wrong thing, needless to say I was not cool. Over time I matured so I guess I've grown up and crafted my charm but NG always keeps me on my feet. In real life however I'm the same person I am on here apart from all the obvious bisexuality. Only my wife and NG know about that and some day I hope I'll be able to tell everyone."

Are there any other users that you like, and how do they affect you?

Maltos:

"As I stated above I love the NG community, I think everyone contributes in their own way. I think of you guys all the time and the sarcastic dry humor gets me through those crappy days. Just to name a few people, @ManDeep, @supergandhi64, @Monster-64, @Sekhem, @Tony-DarkGrave, @The-Great-One, @Thor and of course you Asandir. If I've forgotten to mention anyone then don't worry you know you're still my buddy. These guys affect me in different ways, some good and some in various odd manners. Such as @supergandhi64, most people didn't like her and she made a huge splash in this community and not many people can do that. @ManDeep was a real ass but there was something about him that I knew, he was a great big teddy bear so I sent him a message and a friend invite and he didn't expect that at all of course I was tickled pink. @Tony-DarkGrave was thought to be a great big troll but in fact he was simply one of us, I guess sometimes I go for the under dog, I see the best in people and I accept them for who they are."

Are there any users that you would consider enemies or that you just don't like?

Maltos:

"I wouldn't consider anyone an enemy at all though there are users that tend to annoy me from time to time. I can't stand users that make up pointless threads with nothing to discuss and they do it over and over. It just bothers me how they'll make a thread about nothing then they make threads complaining about being banned for it. I also hate backseat mods, the users that will play mod for whatever reason, just let the mods do their job that's why they are mods. In my opinion a little bit of backseat modding is fine as long as it is to a small degree. Being helpful so the mods wont ban a fellow nger is alright with me."

= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = 

What is your opinion about the forums? Is there one forum that you prefer? And is there another forum user that you want to see getting interviewed by me?

Maltos:

"The forums are great, I actually never cared for the NG chat, the forums were all I ever needed. It's fun being a forumer because it never gets old. You'll usually find me in general unless I'm feeling creative then I'll be in writing or the VA. I've labeled myself a writer but I don't write as much as I'd like to due to writers block. As for my opinion about the forums, I think its the best way to get to know the community so everyone should get in on it. I'm not sure who I'd like to see interviewed as you've done many but I would like to interview you someday."

I guess that you have an opinion about the moderators of Newgrounds. Do you think that they do a great job or not?

Maltos:

"I think the mods do their job well and I really enjoy those witty thread lock comments, they almost always make me laugh. My favorite mods are @Zachary, @NekoMika, @stafffighter, @TurkeyOnAStick and @Timmy. These are my favorite mods due to their activity in the forums as well as how they've treated me. I've been banned a few times but they were just reasons each time. NekoMika is always kind, stafffighter seems a bit crazy but he cracks me up, TurkeyOnAStick always says something worth while and I just so happen to insult people by calling them a turkey so maybe I saw a connection there."

= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = 

Would you like to become a moderator on Newgrounds? If so, what kind of moderator?

Maltos:

"If given the opportunity I would accept the title of mod because I like a clean house and I'm not afraid to take out the garbage. I would no doubt be a forum mod because the forums are my virtual home and when it's late at night it gets dirty when there aren't any mods around. No real point for a mod at night though, who cares about those awful threads made at 3 in the morning, who would see them anyways? If I were a mod I would do my best to make sure that everything is as it should be but I wouldn't ban the crap out of everything, just the things that are either against the rules or never should have been. If I were to lock a thread you can bet your ass there would always be a witty lock comment every time."

You have made a couple of great interviews with Newgrounds users in the past. When did you get the idea to start doing interviews? Which users would you like to interview in the future?

Maltos:

"I got the idea to start doing interviews in the @supergandhi64 hay day. I was told that no one would interview her and so I took it upon myself to interview her myself. I really wanted to know who the person behind the user was and through that I wanted to know the person behind every user. Mn NG staff, mods, users and newcomers alike. It's a very large goal but I strive toward big goals they keep me busy. Also being an interviewer for me was furthured when I learned that The-Great-One was moving on toward different goals and would stop interviewing, so I figured that being an interviewer wouldn't be a position that was already too full. I'm working on an interview with @TomFulp and he's a busy fellow so it may take some time to get it out to you guys. Though I have no doubt that the community is aware how hard he works for us all and the new changes they are making to the site and they are good changes so I'm happy."

You mentioned in the past that you are married and have a son. Tell my readers how becoming a parent has changed your life.

Maltos:

"I love my wife of 5 years, I've never had a better life to lead than this point in my life and my son is the best thing I could ever ask for. He is a blessing upon my life that made me see a side of myself that I never knew, I've become patient, careful, and a worry rock but when my son entered this world he taught me to love in such a way I never could have dreamed of. I will forever strive to be the father I never had and my son will have the life I did not and I feel privileged to give him the best life that I can. Being a parent has changed me forever, though I had a rough upbringing I am thankful for how my life turned out and I could not have asked god for a better life."

You are a member of the Grunge Club. What do you like about this music genre? Which grunge bands and songs do you like the most?

Maltos:

"Grunge is pure and raw and without direction but it all flows together like a whirlwind of power chords that wrap around you soul and allow you to see the world through the words that make no sense. I write music and I sing all the time, some times when I reply over the forums I sing my response aloud. I've got two electric guitars and a fender amp but I haven't played in over a year due to work and taking care of my son. Life can be random but I am a control freak so I do my best to make my life into whatever I want it to be. It is a flaw of mine though it can be one of my best traits as it keeps me motivated to do what I want and that is important, you have to do things for yourself or else you will lose your sense of self. I listen to music all the time and here are a few songs from my favorite grunge bands. Blackhole sun by Soundgarden,  Smells Like Teen Spirit by Nirvana, The Pretender by the Foo Fighters, Been Caught Steeling by Jane's Addiction, Rusty Cage by Soundgarden, Lithium by Nirvana and many more."

It seems like you have a few tattoos. When did you get your first tattoo? What meaning do they have for you?

Maltos:

"I've got three tattoos and the first one I got was a small tribal on my shoulder but then people made fun of me saying that it was such a tiny tattoo, so I got a larger tribal tattoo that covered alot of my arm. Then I wanted a tattoo with meaning and that had a hint of that grungy personality that I hold. So on my right fore arm I got a tattoo of a nuclear warhead with radiation and smoke as it's about to explode and it's got a banner across it that says Nuclear Family. What it means is a core family consisting of a husband, wife and their children. It is of my own design and I plan to get more tattoos in the future."

Every person has secrets. Can you tell one of yours or something else that we didn't know about you yet?

Maltos:

"Secrets? I do have a few secrets but here's one that I can tell all of you that will give you a good laugh at my expense, I actually have alot of fetishes. I won't go into what they are but none of them involve torture or whips and chains. They are just kinda out of the norm. They are very dirty but since there are users on here of young ages I wouldn't dare go into detail about them."

What can we expect from you in the future, Maltos?

Maltos:

"In the future you can expect to see me in the forums as of right now I'm on my way to 1000 posts which I think kicks ass. You can also expect more interviews, art and hopefully a few games and some movies that I'm working on. I take forever to make anything or to even upload it to ng I'm a perfectionist. You can also expect that I'll uploading a few voice acting demos soon, so that's me in a nutshell I guess so here's to another year of Newgrounds."

Now you are filled with more knowledge about Maltos, dear reader.Feel free to leave a comment here, saying what you think about the interview, requesting users to get interviews is also appreciated. Tune in next time :3
