Asandir's interviews with Newgrounds forum users

This week's interview features the user Kogey.

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

When did you find Newgrounds and why did you join? Why did you choose the username link-011 and why did you change it to Kogey?

Kogey:

"I found Newgrounds back in 2004, I was about 11 years old when I joined. A very close friend of mine at the time named Danny actually introduced me to the site, he's like "OH YOU CAN WATCH ALL KINDS OF ANIMATED PORN ON IT IT'S GREAT!" I signed up for an opposite reason, I loved playing flash games (Mind you I did view a few porn flashes as puberty was just starting to kick in) and it was pretty much all over from there. I signed up as my stupid 12 year old self, played games, watched videos. Was a grand ol' time for the most part. Hell I even posted on the forums a bit but I wouldn't suggest going back that far in my posts because my 11 year old self is pretty embarassing x3"

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

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

Kogey:

"Oh of course, it's literally about 10 years ago that I've signed up so I've changed massively as both a person and a user here on newgrounds. Even though I'm only 21 I've gone through a fair share of real life shit within those 10 years to change me. I've grown up a lot since I've signed up, the fact that I still have this Newgrounds account means a lot to me be able to look back and see what I was like 10 years ago. It's kinda like a time capsule of the internet."

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

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

Kogey:

"Oh plenty, there's loads of people who I love and respect on Newgrounds. Even though they're hated, most of the original Kitty Krew members are awesome since I actually was in the KK years ago. Rad is a very close friend of mine as well, he's just a generally awesome dude and a great friend, one that I would have never met if I never joined NG, and plenty of others I don't really feel like listing but they're there in my heart, lol. Without a lot of these people I probably wouldn't be as active as I am now, but yeah man."

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

Kogey:

"Nah not really, I'm a pretty passive person so there's not any users in particular I don't like. I'm pretty neutral on the scale."

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

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

What is your opinion about the forums? Is there one forum that you prefer?

Kogey:

"As far as forums go they're the reason I still hang out on NG for the most part, years back I would always participate in "Photoshop (insert stuff here)" threads and had a great time with those, I also had a very popular thread in the gaming forum about Garry's Mod screenshots that's been somewhat active since 2008 which is neato cool beans. But for the most part I love the forums and the discussion/bullshit is what keeps me coming back to NG."

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

Kogey:

"Depends, I've had a rockey past with Malachy and Poozy, but for the most part the mods are pretty awesome, reasonable people that I can see myself getting along with with no issue at all. It's funny, I got banned by Malachy at one point for saying the word "Faggot" and the reason for the ban was "Homophobic comments" when I'm gay and I wasn't calling anybody a faggot directly."

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

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

Kogey:

"Hey, if I could I'd probably be a forum mod. I get to have all the autistic power I want! But in all seriousness being a forum mod would be pretty cool considering I've been around for a while and know what the rules/guidelines/other shit is for the most part. Fear the furry moderator! That or an Audio mod since I love making music and stuff, but I'm far more active on the forums than I am on the audio portal so I guess it would make more sense in that aspect."

You were a member before the redesign 2007. Tell me how you experienced Newgrounds back then and what changes you liked about the redesign.

Kogey:

"Personally, I loved the old NG design. Back in 2004 it was just so futuristic looking, and all the funny ads for anime porn was hilarious. But of course as any member pre 2007 all the past designed were better because we look at everything through rose-tinted glasses. I occasionally go onto the wayback internet archive to give myself a nostalgia kick and go "DAMN, I MISS THIS". But if anything as I'm about to elaborate on below, I prefer the 2007 redesign over anything, that was my favorite of all."

The last redesign happened 2012. Tell me what you think about it. What do you like and what is not so good?

Kogey:

"Personally, I prefer the 2007 design over the current one. It just had such a good feel to it, the new design just feels kinda bleh. Its workable and I like it, but I just highly prefer that awesome Newgrounds feel that I just don't get with the current theme. That and BRING BACK ANIMATED USER IMAGES, I miss my bot image! But yeah, all in all I'm not a fan of it. I don't mind it, but I don't like it much."

You are a furry. How did you become one and does it affect your life?

Kogey:

"I became a furry I guess when I was a child, I've always had a deep interest for anthropomorphic characters and when I got a high speed internet connection I found numerous communities out there who have similar interests/feelings that I do. So I guess that's what classifies me as a furry. Doesn't really effect my life much, I would love to get a fursuit some day but those are big bucks. I however met my boyfriend through a furry community whom I've been with for over a year now, and couldn't be happier. He is the love of my life and wouldn't have found him if I wasn't a furry, so I guess that's something to be grateful for. Love you, Ryan <3"

Back in 2011, your neighbors house burned down completely. Talk about this incident in detail and what feelings you had on that day.

Kogey:

"Right, well it happened at around 12:00 AM, I remember getting evacuated from my home by the fire department because they were afraid it would actually catch my house on fire. It was my neighbor, Harry. It was a triple decker house, however only the first floor was done. Apparently he had been doing renovations on the second floor (which had no electricity) so it did it by candle light. Well he left those candles lit and took a nap and suddenly flames. The house was completely demolished early 2012, I actually have a video of the house burning down and an interview with a neighbor who used to live in that exact house while she was a kid. I'll drop a link to that interview here.

It sucks but my feelings are pretty mutual on the situation, what's done is done and he made a bad decision with what he did which ended in flames."

You are/were a member of the Kitty Krew. When did you become a member? Do you think that the fading presence of groups like the Kitty Krew and Clock Crew is hurting Newgrounds?

Kogey:

"A bit on the hurting part, I really miss the KK of 2007, when I joined it was just so fun to be apart of, we would spam our own boards with bullshit and then make silly flashes and throw em on NG, watching the hate flow through everybody just because we were the kitty krew. We need more crews submitting shitty flash and having fun, it seems like internet videos of today are just about views and money, not about making them and enjoying the content being created."

You play guitar. When did you learn to play a guitar and how many guitars do you currently have? Who is your favorite guitar player?

Kogey:

"Well I used to play guitar. That was ages ago and I kinda stopped doing so. I actually got more into playing piano/synth more and own a midi keyboard, which is how I make most of my current music. I loved guitar, but I just feel more comfortable playing keys. I've actually tried playing guitar again recently and it's just not happening, might go for more lessons but again I feel more comfortable on a piano. But my favorite guitar player is easily Steve Vai."

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

Kogey:

"Oh boy, that's a tough one. Well I guess I can share my deepest and darkest secret. I still sleep with my baby blanket, not because I'm a babyfur or shit like that, but it's more of a comfort thing. For some reason I get comfort from sleeping with it and it actually helps me sleep as well, without it I can't sleep for shit at all."

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

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

Kogey:

"Most likely more music, I love making music even though I'm not very good at it, I just occasionally open up FL studio and get some melodies out of my head, I should post more to NG but I'm just too lazy. I've also wanted to pick up flash again so I might actually make some crappy animations in the future assuming that I'm not the lazy ass that I am. But I'd love to submit more content on NG and eventually hit the 10,000 post club on the forums. Soooo yeah."

agree with his views on presence of flash crews, thats a thing that needs to return

Asandir responds:

Yeah I think so too. It's one of the things that made Newgrounds stand out. When I joined most groups were already inactive but it definitely is worse now. Last Clock Day had like 50 submissions, 2010 we had 300 I think.
