Asandir's interviews with Newgrounds forum users

This week's interview features the user Oolaph.

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

Oolaph:

"I was first exposed to Newgrounds sometime around 2004. My uncle used to show me a bunch of cartoons from the portal all the time, and I was hooked on finding new flashes to watch for years to come. Five years passed before I even entertained the thought of getting that mysterious Grounds Gold account. It wasn't until I finally decided to click that "Forums" button and lurked around General for a day or two that I realised just how much fun and joy I was missing out on. So in late 2009, I finally made an account, started posting, and had an identity on Newgrounds.

I barely remember how I came up with the name Oolaph, though I know the name existed a good while before I made this account. Who knows where I got it from, I'd been using the name for various things before getting my account, and I guess I just decided to take it as my alias or whatever when I used it here. I now use Oolaph for my username anywhere, it's kind of my second name now."

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

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

Oolaph:

"I've certainly changed in one way or another, be it from Newgrounds' influence or not. I think I've generally become a lot more laid back and generally more apathetic as time has passed. I used to try to be funny and make jokes to make people laugh on the forums, but now I don't really care. I just post to post and have a nice time."

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

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

Oolaph:

"A good bit of people that I first liked when I made an account have drifted away, which is unfortunate, but there are still plenty of great users hanging around here. People like Klik, Spirit, SwankyVagrant, Ryanson, Gagsy, ScarletVelvet, SineRider, ZAAL, and Slint are the ones that keep me coming back here. Newgrounds is all about the community for me, and as long as there are cool dudes like them around, I'll be around."

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

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

Oolaph:

"I definitely wouldn't consider any users "enemies", that's pretty silly. There are definitely people where seeing threads by them do nothing but entice me to give a discouraged sigh, but it's easy enough to ignore them and I try my best to do so. There's not point in getting mad at other people over small things like that, so I just try to avoid them if I can."

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

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?

Oolaph:

"I really like spending time in threads on the Clubs & Crews forum, I frequent a good bit of clubs over there. Though I will admit most of my browsing time goes to General, even though I feel like it's gone downhill lately. I don't really find much joy in the General forum anymore, I pretty much just stick around there for the few users I still really like. Also I think Ryanson should get one of these nifty interviews. He's a pretty cool dude and he has plenty to say about stuff."

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

Oolaph:

"We still have those? I feel like we barely ever see mods actually moderating nowadays. Not that I think they do a bad job, threads still get locked and people still get banned, but I don't feel like we have the same "moderator presence" that we used to. I miss the snarky lock posts and clever ban announcements, now it's just silent punishment for those that need it."

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

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

Oolaph:

"f you asked me this question maybe a year or two ago, I would've been all over it. But if I was a forum mod today I think it would feel more like babysitting than helping out with the community. I was an icon mod for a while, and it was fun, but making 140x90 thumbnails for mediocre flashes got old after a while and I stopped a little while after the redesign. I can't really think of any mod positions I would like to have, so I guess my answer is no."

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

The redesign happened last year. Tell me what you think about it. What do you like and what is not so good?

Oolaph:

"It's pretty cool. Everything still feels very busy, though. I enjoyed the last design because of its simplicity and how it was easy on the eyes for extended periods of browsing. The guys did a great job with this, and it's certainly more interesting to look at, but I think I still liked the last one a bit more."

You bought some stuff from the NG store. What kind of stuff would you like to see in the NG store?

Oolaph:

"I would love to see Newgrounds sell their own brand of coffee. The name just fits too well."

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

Oolaph:

"Despite having him as my icon, the colours of his scarf as my signature, and a replica of his scarf around my neck at this very moment, Tom Baker is not my favourite incarnation of The Doctor. Patrick Troughton, the second Doctor, is actually the one I hold nearest to my heart. I just think Baker's got mad style."

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

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

Oolaph:

"Well, I'll always be around, that's for sure. I wouldn't feel right leaving this place. Expect more awfully dull forum posts and possibly maybe perhaps some audio submissions in the future. Probably not the latter, though."

Now you are filled with more knowledge about Oolaph, 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
