Interview with BumFodder

Asandir's interviews with Newgrounds forum users

This week's interview features the user BumFodder.

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

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

BumFodder:

"I found Newgrounds in 2004. I hadn't had the internet for quite a few years before that, and I remembered playing on the old flash sites like stickpage on dial up and wanted to play more things like that, and Newgrounds was the biggest flash site so it was easy to find. I joined later on from that so I could post on the forums and so I could get more voting power I think.

The name BumFodder reflects how random I was at the time, I couldn't really think of a username so I thought of bums (the thing you sit on for americans) and then what comes out of it. I still like it though since it's just so bad."

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

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

BumFodder:

"When I joined here I was a silly kid who posted stupid stuff, and when it made people mad I tried to make them madder. I'd say I've never really acted differently online than offline, and I'd also say I've changed a lot from a stupid kid to what I am now. There was a couple of years where I had only a handful of posts on here, and after that I was a lot less stupid."

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

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

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

BumFodder:

"Too many to name them all. I dont think I need any specific shout outs because im bound to forget a couple by accident and they know who they all are. They've been really great friends over the years, I'm so glad I came back to Newgrounds."

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

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

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

BumFodder:

"There aren't any people who I hate, but there are definitely a few who I think are retarded. Not giving anyone the satisfaction of being named though."

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

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

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?

BumFodder:

"Well these days 90% of posts are on General, and the other forums are far too specific to have much discussion. The forums have also been on an infamous decline in quality since the last redesign and im pretty sure it can't get any worse. Newgrounds is still great for keeping in touch and the occasional shitpost though I have to admit.

As for interviewing, either ihatesonic1 or Drinze would be really good. They pm around a lot and Drinze has been around for ages."

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

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

BumFodder:

"They either seem to be cool or not so cool. A couple of them are literally retarded though. Not going any further than that."

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

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

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

BumFodder:

"No thank you lol."

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

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

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

BumFodder:

"I think the design before was a lot better both visually and functionally. With the newer one they hid the portal and introduced the poorly designed pages to replace them. After the hype was over the flash approving went down to the slowest speed ever, I remember it was purple constantly for months. The drop down menus are also kind of annoying and bad for mobiles, and other stuff too like worse level icons. I remember at first people were defending it like "Oh you'll get used to it, it's better bla bla bla" but now time has passed I've not heard one person defend this one. I just wish there were some options to change it back."

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

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

You play Team Fortress 2. Tell me which class you like to play most and what you think about the overall changes that this game went through in the last years.

BumFodder:

"I used to be really good at it but I don't play it much anymore, but I have played the Scout, Sniper and Demo the most. What I think about the changes to TF2 is quite similar to what I think about Newgrounds, except slower. Sometime after the medic update they began releasing a load of unbalanced stuff due to the economy, and it slowly started getting worse and worse until it was more about the items than the playing. It's most fun now on vanilla 24 player servers."

It seems that you are fan of the Halo series. When did you start playing Halo, what do you like about it and which one of the series is your favourite? Are you looking forward to more Halo titles in the future?

BumFodder:

"I liked Halo from the start, but unfortunately it's just plain bad now. From the first to ODST it was great, no matter what Rummy says. I have no idea what they were doing, but Reach was just bad, and then Halo 4 was horrible. I still cry myself to sleep every night."

You watch anime. Which was the first anime you watched? Also talk about your favourite anime.

BumFodder:

"The first one I watched was really unoriginal, either Dragonball Z or Pokémon, I can't really remember. My favourite anime is Higurashi though. I also like the visual novels but it get's stupid later on, and a lot of them arent translated and are hard to get, etc. I would'nt say it's the best ever but it's still my favourite, I just find the characters really likeable, the premise interesting, the fact you need to think more than usual to make sense of it all since the stories universe as a whole is a bit of a mindfuck. Also Rummy loves Kira."

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

Gorillaz is one of your favourite bands. Did you ever visit a Gorillaz concert or any other concert? If so, talk about this experience.

BumFodder:

"I actually hadn't listened to the Gorillaz for ages until last year. The Gorillaz were one of my favourite bands as a kid when I listened to a lot of Hip Hop, and someone randomly mentioned them one day and I started listening to them a lot again. I've only ever been to two concerts and they were when I was a kid, one was just a bunch of different crap bands, and the other was the Lighthouse Family which is quite possibly the least exciting act for a concert lol."

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

BumFodder:

"I'm a grill."

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

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

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

BumFodder:

"I will be less on here and more on sevkitty.com"

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

autism

Asandir responds:

Autism is a disorder of neural development characterized by impaired social interaction and verbal and non-verbal communication, and by restricted, repetitive or stereotyped behavior. The diagnostic criteria require that symptoms become apparent before a child is three years old. Autism affects information processing in the brain by altering how nerve cells and their synapses connect and organize; how this occurs is not well understood. It is one of three recognized disorders in the autism spectrum (ASDs), the other two being Asperger syndrome, which lacks delays in cognitive development and language, and pervasive developmental disorder, not otherwise specified (commonly abbreviated as PDD-NOS), which is diagnosed when the full set of criteria for autism or Asperger syndrome are not met.

Autism has a strong genetic basis, although the genetics of autism are complex and it is unclear whether ASD is explained more by rare mutations, or by rare combinations of common genetic variants. In rare cases, autism is strongly associated with agents that cause birth defects. Controversies surround other proposed environmental causes, such as heavy metals, pesticides or childhood vaccines; the vaccine hypotheses are biologically implausible and lack convincing scientific evidence. The prevalence of autism is about 1–2 per 1,000 people worldwide, and it occurs about four times more often in boys than girls. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) report 20 per 1,000 children in the United States are diagnosed with ASD as of 2012, up from 11 per 1,000 in 2008. The number of people diagnosed with autism has been increasing dramatically since the 1980s, partly due to changes in diagnostic practice and government-subsidized financial incentives for named diagnoses; the question of whether actual prevalence has increased is unresolved.

Parents usually notice signs in the first two years of their child's life. The signs usually develop gradually, but some autistic children first develop more normally and then regress. Early behavioral, cognitive, or speech interventions can help autistic children gain self-care, social, and communication skills. Although there is no known cure, there have been reported cases of children who recovered. Not many children with autism live independently after reaching adulthood, though some become successful. An autistic culture has developed, with some individuals seeking a cure and others believing autism should be accepted as a difference and not treated as a disorder.
