This week's interview features the user Klik.
When did you find Newgrounds and why did you join? Why did you choose the username Klik?
"I first found newgrounds way back in 2006 or 2007 while googling for pokemon movies. I eventually made an account in 2008 under the username klik722 . Of course being the foolish child that I was, I lost the password to it, eventually making this account under the name klik28, later having it be changed to just Klik. For why I chose the username Klik, I just have always used that username for anything account related since I was child, having no recollection of how I came up with it."
Do you think that you changed over the time you were here, as user, or also in real life?
"Oh defiantly, over the course of just 3 years my main account has been here, my views on life have radically changed. If you take a look back on some of my posts, I would always be a tryhard comic which subsequently got me banned alot. I also grew more mature and gained a better taste in music, film, and vidya games."
Are there any other users that you like, and how do they affect you?
"I kinda see myself as a pretty sensitive person, the slightest humorous insult can set me off into a state of sadness. So anytime a user makes a hurtful comment about me they might peer pressure me into fitting in. As for users I like, most of them have left this site or rarely post anymore, such examples would be ptero, sumidiotdude, Domo, coleco, Valjylmyr, XenonMonkey, Lunaful, and others I'm forgetting at the moment. There are still some good members still consistently posting on this site like Oolaph."
Are there any users that you would consider enemies or that you just don't like?
"There's a couple of users that used to tick me off constantly whenever they would post something, but I really don't get mad at individual users anymore and more just the user base as a whole. If I had to pick just one special little guy to be my "enemy" though it would be Jolly <3."
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 feel as if the forums have gone downhill recently due to poor modship and a ravaging userbase. It may just be me though, growing out of newgrounds, but it still feels like newgrounds has defiantly changed for the worse since the redesign. As for a user you should interview, Oolaph might have something to say."
Iguess that you have an opinion about the moderators of Newgrounds. Do you think that they do a great job or not?
"I used to hate the mods like Malachy and others for banning me over stupid offences like "posting in a spam thread". But now I more resent the mods for not banning or locking any threads anymore. Call me a hypocrite, I know."
Would you like to become a moderator on Newgrounds? If so, what kind of moderator?
"I think all the users would like to be some sort of moderator of any kind, just to have the kind of power. But of course, like the majority of users, I feel as if being a moderator just won't happen in my near future so I just don't care if I am or not."
The redesign happened last year. Tell me what you think about it. What do you like and what is not so good?
"I like it, people might complain about it a ton, but people will always complain about something after a long wait. The only thing I would probably improve upon is an edit and a deletion button for posts, so I don't have to PM a mod if I accidently make a double post or if I have some serious spelling and grammar mistakes."
You spent a considerable amount playing The Binding of Isaac, the full version of a demo that origins from Newgrounds users. Would you like to see more works, for example expanded versions or Sequals of popular Newgrounds games on Steam?
"I would defiantly like to seem exceedingly difficult beat em up game of some sort inspired by Newgrounds availabe on Steam. I used to play alot of those types of games on Newgrounds in the past and a fully fleshed out game would be amazing. Castle Crashers seems just like that, but I find it to be quite repetitive extremely fast and has lost it's charm for me. I hope to see Battleblock Theater released here soon so Newgrounds can get some attention directed towards the site."
If you would have to name one game of the last years that impressed you the most, which one would it be and why?
"2012 really dissapointed me overall in terms of video games. Mass Effect 3 became one of the biggest disappointments ever for me and Team Fortress 2 started it's downfall with it's free2play userbase and clunky aesthetic it has now. However some games did manage to give me hope for the future of games. "The walking dead", "Journey", and "Tiny & Big: Grandpa's Leftovers" all showed that games can be an artform in which creators can express themselves in, and not just have it be a big commercial product in order for people to buy more mountain dew and doritos."
Every person has secrets. Can you tell one of yours or something else that we didn't know about you yet?
"There's really only one big secret that I actively try keep away from people, so I'll just make one up for you if that works. SECRET: I'm actually a small mongoose actively posting when my owner is gone. There, now tell no one."
What can we expect from you in the future,Klik?
"May or may not see less of me in the future, I don't know as of yet, the future is hard to foretell."
Now you are filled with more knowledge about Klik, 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
