This week's interview features the user Cosmic.
When did you find Newgrounds and why did you join? Why did you choose the username When did you find Newgrounds and why did you join? Why did you choose the username NuclearWarfare?
"I do believe that I discovered Newgrounds from playing the Pico Sim Date games in around 2008-2009. I strayed away from clicking the link to find out more about the strange holiday for a year or so, but my curiosity eventually peaked and I ended up here. I started playing many of the fun flash games and watching random flashes, and after a few months I made an account as the user xnccb. Fun fact: I've gone through 5 name changes: PaintSplat,DarkRedWarrior (This was a stupid idea and I changed it an hour after), NuclearWarFare (I got a lot of shit from grammar nazi's for having the F in Fare capitalized), CocoaBeanie (For a contest), and back to NuclearWarfare."
Changed his name to CosmicRainbow and then to Cosmic
Do you think that you changed over the time you were here, as user, or also in real life?
"Newgrounds hasn't effected me in real life, but I definitely have changed as a user since I signed up almost 3 years ago. I was very gullible with sarcasm, so I probably was thought of as a troll when I would think people were telling the truth. I've gained much maturity and if I didn't have my age up now, I think I can get away with faking my age."
Are there any other users that you like, and how do they affect you?
"I can easily rattle off many names off of the top of my head, but I will say a few. If I don't mention you,please don't think that I hate you ;). One of my favorite animators is SpeedoSausage. He gives me and my friends much joy with his animations and I love them all. Some forum posters I like are Cootie and Travis."
Are there any users that you would consider enemies or that you just don't like?
"I can honestly say that I despise EyeLovePoozy for banning me on my birthday because I made my own thread. He has also banned me for other stuff that isn't breaking the rules, and I hope he gets his moderator abilities taken away ASAP. I also have a grudge on Rucklo. He can be cool, but his terrible MSPaint drawings on the front page annoy me. Everyone else is totally fine by 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?
"I think the forums contain some great, intelligent members with the occasion of some trolls, but overall a great community. I prefer the general forum like most, but I do enjoy a stroll in the art forum to see some amazing art. If I had to choose someone for you to interview next, it would be LiquidFire, if not interviewed in the past."
I guess that you have an opinion about the moderators of Newgrounds. Do you think that they do a great job or not?
"I think most of the mods do their jobs well, but I think some of the mods are great, such as Murray. With the exception of a few, I thank the moderators for keeping the forums orderly and for stopping those who ruin our fun over here in the Newgrounds forums."
Would you like to become a moderator on Newgrounds? If so, what kind of moderator?
"Even though this won't happen since I am too young, I would enjoy being a forum moderator over a chat moderator, since it seems the chat room has constant problems and I wouldn't have the ability to handle them myself. I'll let the guys in charge handle the moderating themselves for now :)"
The redesign happened last year. Tell me what you think about it. What do you like and what is not so good?
"The redesign looks amazing, and I can't believe its already been a year since that happened. I do wish the background would have more designs from other users since I am already tired of the current ones. The chat needs major improvements, which I think the staff has in store for us someday."
It seems like you play video games. Would you kindly reveal which recently released game impressed you the most?
"I've recently started playing Far Cry 3, Hitman Absolution, and Terraria. Far Cry 3 is my personal favorite this year, and I didn't see any problems besides the game lacking camo outfits which would benefit the player majorly. Hitman Absolution is fun and challenging, but there are a few problems such as Agent 47 ducking to cover slowly, as if there aren't gunshots being fired at him. The disguise system is flawed; The people get suspicious of you as if they know everyone they work with. Terraria isn't a new game, but I recently got it after I stopped complaining that it was a 2D minecraft. I was totally wrong and I think it is a very fun game that everyone should try, along with the two games above! Far cry 3 has to be the best out of the bunch, and I personally can NOT wait for GTA V to come out later this spring."
Every person has secrets. Can you tell one of yours or something else that we didn't know about you yet?
"I am actually gay. Its just natural with me and I hope that nobody thinks I am strange about it. I also tend to lie so the previous statement isn't true. I do tend to act like a complete retard when nobody is around, though!"
What can we expect from you in the future, Cosmic?
"I will be starting to learn to make audio so you can look forward to that."
Now you are filled with more knowledge about Cosmic, 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 week :3
