This week's interview features the user gamejunkie.
When did you find Newgrounds and why did you join? Why did you choose the username gamejunkie?
"I found Newgrounds (or more like Newgrounds was pointed out to me by an associate at the time) early 2002, I joined late 2002 because I liked the site more than any of the others around at that time."
Do you think that you changed over the time you were here, as user, or also in real life?
"Not in the slightest. I think I've been the same ol' gamejunkie from day 1. My real life has no impact on my Newgrounds life."
Are there any other users that you like, and how do they affect you?
"There are many other users that I like. I'm not going to single out anyone in particular, the people that are my NG friends know who they are."
Are there any users that you would consider enemies or that you just don't like?
"No one that I would consider an 'enemy' as such but there are a couple of totally unremarkable users that are so insignificant that their names don't even warrant a mention. They know who they are I'm sure."
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?
"The forums are okay. IMO they need to be policed (Modded) better, there are still far too many things that get posted that are against NG rules that the Mods just let slide. I like the Wi/Ht Forum pages and The Elite Guard Barracks the best I suppose. No other Forum users that you haven't already interviewed."
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 the Mods do a fair job. I think it goes without saying that most NG'ers think that some Mods are better than others."
Would you like to become a moderator on Newgrounds? If so, what kind of moderator?
"No. I don't need to suffer the angst of thousands of depressed prepubescent teens. It's bad enough getting it when you're not a Mod."
You were a member before the redesign 2007. Tell me how you experienced Newgrounds back then and what changes you liked about the redesign.
"IMO Newgrounds hasn't changed anywhere near as much as people rant about that it has. There hasn't been much about any of the redesigns that I have liked. Call me old fashioned but I think the original is always the best."
The redesign happened last year. Tell me what you think about it. What do you like and what is not so good?
"See previous question. I'm not saying I don't like the redesign as such but some things should have just been left the way they were. The thing I don't like is the bugs and glitches that we are still getting months after the redesign."
You are a member of the Elite Guard Barracks. Tell me when and why you joined them. What do you think about the current state of the flash portal, and what kind of changes would you like to see?
"I joined the EGB a couple of years ago because I was sick and tired of seeing truck loads of shovelware and stolen games being submitted to The Portal. I thought if I could help slow down the torrent of poop entering The Portal then why not join. I will refrain from answering questions about the state of The Portal because, just because. (Fucking Savewhores)"
You collect plushies. When did you start collecting plushies and how many plushies do you have in total?
"I do collect Plushies. I probably started serious collecting when I was 15, my collection now totals around 3,000."
Fishing is one of your hobbies. Do you have a favourite fishing place?
"Wherever the Fish are biting is my favourite place to fish. J/K, Groote Eylandt is by far my favourite place to fish, Darwin runs second behind that."
What was the biggest fish you ever caught?
"I have landed a Lemon Shark that was just over 9 feet long and weighed 133 kgs. But I've also caught many other huge fish. Most big Australian fish species."
Every person has secrets. Can you tell one of yours or something else that we didn't know about you yet?
"I have read the Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy series of books about 20 times each and I can recite Vogon poetry."
What can we expect from you in the future, gamejunkie?
"Nothing more than what you have already got from me. 24/7 365 gamejunkie, the way you like it."
Now you are filled with more knowledge about gamejunkie, 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
