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

SmartyPants:

"I first stumbled upon Newgrounds back in 2008 while browsing the web. Unfortunately, I can't remember what I was searching for, but I do remember a link bringing me to a thread in the Video Games forum. After reading some of the funny posts in that thread and checking out the rest of the forums, I decided to create an account so I could get in on some of the action.

Big surprise, my name wasn't originally SmartyPants. It was imasmartass. I stuck with the name and hated it dearly. Four months ago I finally had the courage to ask Wade to change my name. I chose SmartyPants because I thought it sounded better and it made me stick out in a way. I have no plans on changing it anytime soon."

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

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

SmartyPants:

"Yes I have honestly. I truly believe that I really changed as a user around here. Most, if not all of my posts back then were ridiculous, dumb, or both! But to be fair, I was young and stupid. As time went on, I lost interest in the site and moved on with my life. But in November of last year, I was back. By then, I had matured and was no longer that idiotic kid I was before. I have started making better posts and threads since then."

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

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

SmartyPants:

"Oh, there are quite a bunch, but I will pick out the ones I truly like the most. They are: Sectus, RightWingGamer, HomicidialFrog, YenMuffin, TailsPrower, and Ragnarokia. These guys have been great friends towards me since I returned in November. As to how they affect me. They help me cope with boring or miserable days of my life by making me laugh or chatting with me. Totally the best friends a person could ask for."

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

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

SmartyPants:

"Nope. I have never once considered anyone as an enemy nor will I ever. I like everyone around here, honestly. Every person has their own unique charm to them that makes them likable to me. I dare say that it is near impossible for someone to get me to hate or dislike them."

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

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?

SmartyPants:

"I find that the forums are a great way to kill some time. For the forum I prefer, it would have to be the General forum. The reason for that is because it is the most random and funniest place ever in my opinion. Never in my life have I seen so much buffoonery than I have there. And I love it. I don't know if you interviewed this person, but I say it should be kisame."

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

SmartyPants:

"They do an awesome job. I never had issues with any of them. Granted, I don't know many of the mods. So, keep up the good work guys."

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

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

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

SmartyPants:

"I have given this some thought for a while now. I mean, it would be cool to be a mod, but I'm sure there are many responsibilities and rules you have to follow when you are one. Though, it would be interesting to see first hand what duties a mod has around here. So, I guess the answer to this question is yes, I would like to become a moderator. If I were to become a moderator, I would want it to be a forum mod. I only really hang out in the forums anyways, so it would be the perfect position for me."

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

SmartyPants:

"I really like the redesign. Having user icons is a feature that I have come to like. The NG social is a good way of checking if others replied to my posts or blogs. And the layout in general is very radical to me. As for anything I dislike, I can't really think of anything off the top of my head. So, cool redesign."

You seem to be a fan of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. Can you tell our readers how you became a fan and what you like about the show? Has being a brony affected your life?

SmartyPants:

"Oh I have been waiting to get to this question. Anyways, I became a fan last year near the end of June. I had been seeing these ponies everywhere and was getting fed up with it, so I decided to watch the show and see what all the fuss was about. After watching the pilot, I became hooked and started watching more of it. There were so many things that I liked about the show. The characters, the art, the animation, the music, etc. It made me wonder why I didn't see this sooner. As for how being a brony affected my life, it helped me make some friends for one thing. It also made me feel like a jerk for judging the show so harshly before watching it. Finally, Being a brony has convinced me to buy some of the merchandise associated with the show."

You play Pokemon games. Which one is your favourite? And are you looking forward to Pokemon X and Pokemon Y ?

SmartyPants:

"Pokemon Black 2 is my favorite as of now. I felt that it took everything that made Black great and made it better. I'm still debating whether I will be picking up X or Y. I mean, the whole 3D world sounds cool, but the starters didn't really excite me that much when compared to other starters from past generations. But I'll wait until there is more info about the game before I decide whether to buy it or not."

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

SmartyPants:

"I'm really Antisocial. Like, no joke. I become nervous when around large groups of people and prefer to only have one on one conversations. Been that way my whole life, so I don't expect to change anytime soon."

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

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

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

SmartyPants:

"You can expect some more user icons on my userpage when I'm not being a lazy bum like I am most of the time. Other than that, you can expect more posts from me on the forums in the future and that is about it."
