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

Slint:

"I can't recall exactly, but I'm pretty sure it was when I was around seventh grade, which means around 2006. I used to come here often for games like Heist, which I then showed to my classmates and we all ended up playing them in computer class. I'm not sure why I joined, since I had never been to the forums, but I'm guessing it was for the levels, it looked cool. In the beggining I was zecampeao. Terrible name, in which Ze is my real name and campeao translates to champion. Slint came around when I matured a bit and realized how retarded and bad my name was and I opted for one which represents a band I love, and a name that is short, simple and looks cool."

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

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

Slint:

"Definitely. One needs only to go see my first posts. They make me look like a troll, but they were genuinely that bad. I was 12, so one can't expect much more. I started reading threads and tried to make good, helpful posts, do something for the community, until I spiraled down to my sarcasm-filled posts and ocasional decent ones. I also changed in real life, but NG did not play a part in it, I think the world here and the world outside are two different worlds for me and I like to keep them apart as much as I can."

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

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

Slint:

"There are several users that I really like, yeah, such as yurgenburgen, ZAAL, The-Great-One, saqwert, Boss, Bees [Twilight], Spirit [Picnic]. They are unique in their own way of posting and the BBS would be a lot worse if any of them left. Despite ZAAL not being in it as much as he used to, I still keep in touch via PM, so it's cool. They affect me each in a different way. Some make hilarious posts, some make me think in ways and in things like I have never done, others are just cool cats."

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

Slint:

"Enemies, no, that'd be ridiculous, getting an 'enemy' in an internet forum just because you don't like the guy. Users I don't like, sure, Xenomit should be obliterated from the BBS; mandog, thedark, jjjkuk are also terrible posters that bring down the overall IQ of the site."

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

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?

Slint:

"I use barely exclusively General, apart from it I might have gone to How To once or twice, but that's it. I really like General. It's pretty fun, it has always been. There's always something to talk about there, it feels like you're on the center of something, like your part of whatever's happening right now in the internet. Sure, I'd love to see yurgenburgen interviewed (not sure if he has already been)."

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

Slint:

"Most of the time, yeah, they're pretty good at it. I don't usually bitch or get mad when I get threads locked or banned, because I deserve it 95% of the time. Still, I think poozy overdoes it. Yeah, there's a lot of butthurt going around with poozy, and some of it is actually justified. Other than that, the mod system is going pretty well."

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

Would you like to become a moderator on Newgrounds? If so, what kind of moderator? You posted that as answer on the forums " sup wade u kno id be a gud mod and shit and ban ppl cause 2 many shitpost and that is unascepatble so u kno id ban them ok wad make me mod" :3

Slint:

"Hahaha, I see you did your background check on me. Even though I made that post jokingly, I wouldn't mind being a mod. Would I be a good one? At first I thought 'SURE', then I though 'fuck no', whereas now I think 'well, maybe...'. I'm fairly active, I can spot shitty threads, but I also make them, I love making those short two-sentence threads with song lyrics or some unfunny joke. I think they're important for the BBS, or else we'd be too serious. And the BBS has never been and shouldn't be serious."

The redesign 2012 has arrived earlier this year. Tell me what you think about it. What do you like and what is not so good?

Slint:

"Overall I like it. I really like the layout, the background, I'm glad they decided to keep the orange and black, the rearrangement of the portals, everything like that is great. There's two things I just can't get used to. The levels, for once, I don't like them at all. I loved the old ones, right now I'm using one of those scripts to stay with the old levels. Then there's the smileys. The old :D and the embarassed one can never be beaten. They were perfect, I'd change them back in a heartbeat."

Halloween happened recently. Do you like the Newgrounds layout, especially the level icons?

Slint:

"Yes I do. Halloween might the only time I'll consider disabling the script I mentioned to view the themed icons. These look pretty neat, they feel like a breath of fresh air. I love how the staff strives to keep changing and moving along the year."

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

Slint:

"If I told you, I'd have to kill you."

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

Slint:

"I'm planning on staying, that's for sure. I'm attempting to record some songs with my webcam's microphone, but so far they lack both in inspiration and in quality, so I guess we'll have to wait and see if something will come out of it. Besides that, my presense on the forums. I never got bored in there. The moment I get, I'll leave. ...leaving behind a shitty goodbye post and coming back two days later."
