OK, as most of you know I have only been here for like 7 months on here or so, and I only know about 4 staff members and I feel ashamed not to know more,

Most of the staff has been here a while and probably has a interesting story about how they got there position, I would like to know more about you

Like:

When did you join PC?
When you first got promoted what section did you get?
How many times have you been promoted?
What is it about pokemon that attracted you here?
and more information if you have any to give, do you have a job, what kind of education do you have, what is your major in college. such as things you like to do, anything that we the normal members can relate to:D


Of course if this does not get closed I'll be listing links to the posts of the staffs, you can think of this like a interview to help us get to know you:D.

I would ask normal members to keep there posting in here in a low dozes, but I cant do that:D, so I ask you to just comment on the posts of the staff with following up questions from the info you just read:D, I hope this will be a success and that the staff will participate in this :D

No harm in me kicking this off I guess?

When did you join PC?: Apr '07, just after I got Pearl imported.
When you first got promoted what section did you get?: The humble D/P/P
How many times have you been promoted?: Just the once.
What is it about pokemon that attracted you here?: I wanted to trade. Simple as that. 8D

I've got a job at the local outlet of a nationwide store, I'm in a 6th Form College taking my A-Levels. I'm into reading, cycling, swimming, gaming and football (or soccer to you rong amerikens =[) Umm.. Anything else? Just as long as you guys know us staff don't bite. Or do we...

Chibi-chan
November 6th, 2008, 01:25 PM
...I don't like this thread. I think that knowing a staff member is the same as knowing about any other member...>_>;; But whatever.

When did you join PC? My join date
When you first got promoted what section did you get? Other Chat
How many times have you been promoted? Once obviously.
What is it about pokemon that attracted you here? I can't transfer a hacked deoxys to Emerald ;;

I have no job, but I do believe I can relate to other members. It's not like I'm off in my own world you know, I'm like every other member...I just have a blue name ~_~;

November 6th, 2008, 01:29 PM
When did you join PC?: August 2005, so I managed to join while PC was still experiencing its glory days.
When you first got promoted what section did you get?: I was made a moderator of Home of the Sprites (now called Pixel Art)
How many times have you been promoted?: Three times. First time during December 2005, second during August 2006 and in May of this year.
What is it about pokemon that attracted you here?: I lurked the Manga section the most for scanlations of PokéSpecial Adventures.

At the moment I'm currently studying for a diploma in Art and Design, of which I've kept a stern interest in since I was actually still a kid. I'm generally an easy-going person who loves conversation above all other things, so don't hesitate to drop me a message if you wish to talk.

I agree with Chibi :/ The staff aren't a super special clique that needs to be interviewed or anything, we're just like the rest of y'all. Buuuut, since this does look fun... |D

When did you join PC? January 2006
When you first got promoted what section did you get? Other Chat, actually. But after I quit I got Pokemon General~
How many times have you been promoted? Twice. Once in January of this year, when I got Other Chat, and then again at the end of September (after I quit), when I got Pokemon General.
What is it about pokemon that attracted you here? The fanfiction XD;

I don't have a job, at least not yet. I've applied to a fast food place called Chick Fil A', buuut yeah. I'm just a 9th grader at the moment, since I'm only 15, so no major~

Only responding to this because it's undeniable - we are a clique. Not one of those mean ones that exclude everybody but still, we are very cliquey.

When did you join PC? I can't be bothered to check for ya.
When you first got promoted what section did you get? Pixel Art.
How many times have you been promoted? Just once.
What is it about pokemon that attracted you here? I think it was Pokémon :P (but more specifically, the ROM-hacking aspect of it).

Now lets see, I just started a job in a car park as an attendant, I currently attend university completely a Bachelor of Arts degree with the intention to major in History. A play games a lot, and sing to myself even more, haha. Oh, and I love reading manga.

A Bachelor Degree:D, so what are you planing on doing next?
You can always get a Masters Degree;) *That's if you want to continue to take art in school;)*, So since you wanna major in history you must be good at it, am I right?


Okay I have updated the first post, it's in Alphabetical order;)

November 6th, 2008, 05:42 PM
Might as well post. :x

When did you join PC? January '06. :D
When you first got promoted what section did you get? I was originally only the moderator of Other Games, but recently acquired Other Entertainment and Writing (you all should post there more often)
How many times have you been promoted? Once? XD;
What is it about Pokemon that attracted you here? Ehh, I dunno. I was, what, five? It was the fad. If you mean what attracted me to PC, then that'd be the Sprite Comics section when it was alive. I originally joined to post comics and only frequented that section, but eventually, I spread out to most of the sections unrelated to Pokemon. XD;

Mmm, I'm a highschool senior, almost out of it. I've got a job at a company (ambiguity ftw) and that's quite enjoyable so far. :D I play games, mainly violent ones, but I'm pretty interested in all sorts. I absolutely love to read. Easy way to gain my respect is the ability to write well (especially if you write zombie stories, I loooooove zombies<3). My favorite book series is Harry Potter, buuut I've yet to open my copy of Twilight. :x But I anticipate good things from it. Ew, I've typed more than any other mod. ;;

Also, I don't see why other members should keep their posts to a minimum. :x They're welcome to ask us questions if they want, because your survey isn't very informative with only four questions.

'kay, well, seeing as ex-staffers are allowed, I might as well just boost my ego for a bit:

When did you join PC? June '05
When you first got promoted what section did you get? The Diamond/Pearl(/Platinum) forums.
How many times have you been promoted? Twice.
What is it about pokemon that attracted you here? Well, when I first joined, I guess I was just really excited about the games in general. FireRed/LeafGreen had been released some months ago, and I guess I sorta became a "follower" of the games. I was making some Google Searches about Emerald, found Serebii and its forums, and when I joined there a friend of mine (QFred) told me about PC and whaddya know, I'm here.

November 6th, 2008, 06:24 PM
When did you join PC? I'm serious on this one. I was looking for a cooking recipe when I stumbled upon this forum, where anything can happen (as I've learned through the years) that was not cooking recipes. It was back in June '04.
When you first got promoted what section did you get? Other Entertainment & Other Writing. I later got Pokémon Fan Fiction, and then later I actually was an inch from getting Other Voting Polls, but I was promoted instead.
How many times have you been promoted? Three.
What is it about pokemon that attracted you here? Hmm... Sweet scent?

When did you join PC?: If anyone cares and if I can remember correctly. 8D;
Joined: May 26th, 2007
Modded December 3rd, 2007
Resigned: May 26th, 2008
Left: May 31st, 2008
Returned: September 19th, 2008

When you first got promoted what section did you get?: The uber D/P Section.

How many times have you been promoted?: One time.

What is it about pokemon that attracted you here? Trading Pokemon on wifi. However, I was so appalled at how many times I was getting ripped off so I complained and bothered waka a lot, lol. I worked on a event/hack guide, and I reported anyone trying to trade hacks. I hardly ever ventured out of the D/P forum. Yeah, I was a bit of a nut back in the days and I still am crazy but I've settled down. I believe I was asked by Sammi to be modded, and I was so shocked and excited. It was a hard decision for me but I enjoyed the experience. School and family issues kept conflicting with my modding, so I left for some months to get my mind off certain things.

Outside of forums:
I don't have a job, but I have done volunteer work at my local zoo, mentored/tutored children, and helped with events at my school. I'm a Junior in High School enrolled in the International Baccalaureate program. I'm not sure what I would like as a career, but I'm looking to get a degree in Engineering (some college guy suggested it to me, sounded interesting xD). I don't particularly practice/like sports, but I like to draw and photoshop. I don't remember how I found this place, but I did make a previous account before this one. I never went on it so I forgot about it until after I made this one. I don't think I'm famous, but I do have a lot of awesome friends from here. None of my real life friends even know I like Pokemon, so it's nice to chill here.

Eh, I hope you learned something new.. :>

When did you join PC?
I had a different account that I registered sometime during the first PC elections so I could vote for JA. I have no idea when. @_@ This account though, the only one that matters, was made in May of '05.
When you first got promoted what section did you get?
I first got promoted as the moderator of Other Voting Polls. A few months later, Karli quit the staff and New Users / Welcome needed a mod. I volunteered and got it. (Random bit of fun trivia: both Sammi/Sana and I modded the exact same forums and both of us have now made it to Assistant Admin |D Good luck forums, amirite?)
How many times have you been promoted?
Three times. I got promoted to moderator on November 2nd, 2007. Promoted to Super Mod on April 19th of this year. Thennn lastly Assistant Admin on October 25th of this year.
What is it about pokemon that attracted you here?
It wasn't Pokemon, it was a member. XD; I stuck around for the Pokemon though~

Anything else can just be seen in the "About Me" tab in my profile. 8(

When you first got promoted what section did you get? On September 14th 2007 (I cannot believe I still remember that date) I got promoted for the first time to mod the MCG general area (MCG, MFC and Other Clubs).
How many times have you been promoted? Twice. I got promoted for the first time on Sept. 14th 2007, then resigned in Feburary '08. I asked for my job back about a month later, and got promoted for the second time in March '08. I resigned once again in July '08.
What is it about pokemon that attracted you here? The ROM Hacks. XD;

Well, I have to say that I'm glad I'm not staff anymore. I prefer being a normal member than a staffer.

Oh, and
I agree with Chibi :/ The staff aren't a super special clique that needs to be interviewed or anything, we're just like the rest of y'all. Buuuut, since this does look fun... |D
Not the entire staff is a super special clique, but there are super special cliques within the staff. >;

Well it's either transfer to a double degree in teaching and arts or leave it till the end and do a diploma of education. I think you've misunderstood though - I'm not doing visual arts or anything like that, haha.

Um, well I'm not sure how good I can say I am without sounding too cocky, but I certainly enjoy the subject a lot. I suppose I wouldn't enjoy it if my ability was lacking, so yeah.

When did you join PC?

January 30th, '08, 'round 5AM in the mornin'.

When you first got promoted what section did you get?

When I was promoted near midnight on May 5th, I got New Users / Welcome. Later down the road I became moderator of Strategies & Movesets.

How many times have you been promoted?


Twice (If you're counting both the actual modship & obtaining Strategies & Movesets)

What is it about pokemon that attracted you here?

Well, it was actually a Wailord avatar that lead me here. [You can read about that here (http://www.pokecommunity.com/blog.php?b=525)] I'm still a Pocket Monster fan, and I just like it overall. So, yeah. I guess you could say it was mainly the competitive and strategy aspect.

and more information if you have any to give, do you have a job, what kind of education do you have, what is your major in college. such as things you like to do, anything that we the normal members can relate to?

Heh, I do not have a job, I take online (or virtual) school, I am a Junior. I play games, watch anime, and enjoy my time on PC. I'm a major history hunter, these forums, I mean. Usually when you see me "Searching Forums" I'm on the Today's Posts page, but actually a good amount of the times I'm searching. I like looking through archives and previous threads, it's a lot of fun for me. I love being a member of PC, I haven't been here a year yet, but I'd say its been of heck of an eventful year. XD


Any questions (since I'm... not really sure what to say XD) just ask. :D

When did you join PC? Look at the date in my posts ^^; Mar 2007

When you first got promoted what section did you get? Funtime and Other Trivia, my favourite areas overall.

How many times have you been promoted? Three. One in funtime in April, 5th; another in GBA pokémon games... someday in September (can't remember... the 21st?), and a last one to S-Mod in October, the 8th.

What is it about pokemon that attracted you here? Rom-hacking (exactly, Pokémon Shiny Gold (b'-')b)

Well, I'm in the first year of my university, studying Journalism and Image. In PC, you'll see me around OT and the Pokémon Games areas, mostly. And, hum, I'm a great videogame music obsessor. That's all, I think XD

How many times have you been promoted? Three times. As I said, I was first promoted to S&M in November 2007. Then, at some point in early 2008, we were desperate for a D/P moderator, so I volunteered. Then in August 2008 I was promoted to Super Moderator.
What is it about pokemon that attracted you here? I was actually first attracted to here for the Fan Fiction. Then, the RP sections caught my interest and that's where I was active up until September. Then, I started getting into competitive Pokemon and that's where my path down staff membership began.
Job- I'm a Cashier and it sucks.
Education- I'm currently a Freshman credit-wise and a Sophomore year wise in College. I plan on becoming an Elementary teacher.

Lol I was a cashier and I hated it:D, so you went from normal member to S-mod pretty fast, you must be a weary strong personality to achieve that:D

I have added you to the first post

And to normal members if you have questions for them feel free to post:D

Why not? XD

When did you join PC?
May 1st, 2004. My join date on this account's misleading, becuase this was my first account (http://www.pokecommunity.com/member.php?u=3425). I made this one to change my name, back before the name change thread was made.
When you first got promoted what section did you get?
Other Voting Polls. ♥ Like Audy said, I also was given NU/W after about three months of modding. I forget I modded there sometimes. NU/W was a handful.
How many times have you been promoted?
Four, five if you count coming back from break.
- Modded November 7th, 2005. So, it's my three year modding anniversary today? Neat!
- Added to NU/W somewhere in February, if I recall correctly.
- S-modded on May 20th, 2006.
- Made AA sometime in December of 2007. I can never remember this for the life of me.
- I took a break and was technically promoted again October 30th.
What is it about pokemon that attracted you here?
When I joined, I was a big Ash fan. One of my friends (the other Angela, I can't spell her username off the top of my head) ran it back then and wanted me to post. So I did. XD;

Personal mumbo-jumbo:
- I'm a sophomore in college, still undeclared. (Kind of debating an English major, but who knows anymore.)
- I don't have a job as of yet. I need one, though.
- I love writing. However, I'm not very good at it... XD; Currently, I don't post it, because I want to finish it before seriously editing it, and I don't want to post it until it's more polished.
- I also like playing video games. I need to get back to The World Ends With You. Been so busy lately, though. @_@

I could babble more, but I won't. :(

I used to work at my local supermarket in the Delicatessen Department... it was hell. I don't plan on working again until after University. I'm in my last year of High School and sadly theres only one more day of it left. Rom Hacking is my main hobby but apart from that I also enjoy Programming and Web Design although I haven't done either for a year now. I also enjoy playing Soccer and Badminton. ^___^

Lol you were looking for Recipes, what did you type in on google?*Just curios:D*I found the link to PC on a signature from a different forum while I was looking for a good Lasagna recipe to add to my Communication Sciences school project, since our team had to research and present Italian customs.

God forbid I googled "roasted duck" and found Peking Roast Psyduck on an Other Chat topic. I wouldn't have joined, I'd probably have thought the place was nuts...

...not that I have never thought this place is nuts anyway. D:

When did you join PC?: February 10, 2004
When you first got promoted what section did you get?: January 1, 2005. I was given Pokemon Roleplay at first, and got Other Roleplay a bit later.
How many times have you been promoted?: Four.
What is it about pokemon that attracted you here?: My n00bness at the time (I couldn't even type without n00bspeek. XD) and the fact that I was thirteen and had nothing better to do with my time.

Er... I'm an eighteen year old Canadian who intends on going to University for Environmental Geography next fall. I live in the middle of absolute nowhere and I work at a small town Subway Sandwiches. My hobbies include gaming, graphic design (I'm only subpar, however), watching anime, going to parties, and getting people to try and guess my gender (joke).

Former staff admin here. :O

When did you join PC? - February 12th, 2004
When you first got promoted what section did you get? - The Other Anime and Manga forum, currently known as Japanese Entertainment, think it was November 30th, 2004. I was given New Users / Welcome about a month later and promoted two months later, I think.
How Many times have you been promoted? - Four
What is it about Pokemon that attracted you here? - Nothing, I had already lost any major interest I had in the franchise by the time I joined, but I quickly found that I liked the members here and the forums were really interesting, so I stuck around and made a ton of really good friends.

When did you join PC?
Summer 2002. Way back before the Old PC even existed--PC was an Ikonboard then. :] I rejoined on the vBulletin version of PC on December 14, 2002.

When you first got promoted what section did you get?
Mixed Voting Polls and Other Anime. Nowadays known as OVP and Japanese Entertainment. I've also modded Other Chat and Webmaster's Discussion. I also mod the Community HQ. ♥

How Many times have you been promoted?
Four, to get to Staff Admin. A few more if you get all technical, but no one likes that.

What is it about Pokemon that attracted you here?
I just liked joining Pokémon forums back then. My interest in Pokémon wasn't very big then and took a bit of a nosedive the next year, but I love the atmosphere and I've never totally lost interest. :] It was the slogan that actually attracted me here both times!

Uhh... as for more personal stuff, I'm majoring in Computer Science at university. I'm on a work term right now, working as an office admin in finance but I tend to help out with paperwork and reports for almost everyone. 8| Um, aside from that I don't do much aside from video games, classwork, and sitting by my computer. LOL I'm actually not that interesting. I don't know what else to say.

When did you join PC?

-Febuary 2005...can't remember the time O_o ...

When you first got promoted what section did you get?

-umm...it wasn't long after I had joined but I got the RPG sections o.o

How many times have you been promoted?

Just the once lol. Just got to mod the RPG's. I then asked to be demoted because I had college and stuff...not enough time x_x

What is it about pokemon that attracted you here?

-Umm...just Pokemon lol. I loved the games I didn't mind the anime and the TCG wasn't so bad. So I guess it was mainly the games that attracted me and I pretty much wanted to join a forum that was Pokemon based that wasn't SPPF XD. This place was more fun and laid back ^_^

I'm currently studying art in university in the hopes of then going onto a specialist subject (hopefully animation or film and video). I have a crappy little job as a cinema worker...though I do get free cinema so It's not all bad. I love to draw, write and read and movies/games are my favourite pass time as I'm pretty laid back and don't like to work too hard lol. I love to RPG and though I may seem like a home bunny, I actually love going out with friends and having a laugh be it to the cinema or a night on the town and I adore, swimming, surfing, netball, camping and hiking o.o

When did you join PC?: November 30, 2007, because I saw a trade that I wanted.
When you first got promoted what section did you get?: Sometime near the end of May, and I got the DPPt section.
How many times have you been promoted?: Once, just for modship. But then I asked to be demoted because school and a bunch of other stuff didn't allow me much time to actually mod much.
What is it about pokemon that attracted you here?: The complete awesomeness of the games.
Outside of the forums: I'm a freshman in High School in the IB (International Baccalaureate) program. I don't have a job, and I enjoy playing games, being with friends, watching TV, and messing around with GIMP.

None of you know who I am. :[

When did you join PC?
Early in 2003. Wow, really? Yeah, a long time ago. I had some truly awful signatures and avatars of Haruka in swimwear.

When you first got promoted what section did you get?
It was less than a month after I joined, and it was for....the Ruby and Sapphire section? I totally impressed the sparse staff back then, since I was all "Pokemon professor" and stuff. I've always tried to use expertise to ease me into otherwise uncomfortable social situations.

How many times have you been promoted?
Well, if you consider net status, I pretty much ended up back where I started. But, mm. I made the biggest jump ever, I think. From Super Mod to Admin, and then created two new positions.

What is it about pokemon that attracted you here?
I was a dork and wanted to get all serious about the mechanics of the game. All of the other Pokemon forums were slow or not as filled with awesome people as this one.

Personal stuff? I'm more of an idea than a person. ♥

I'm just a student in high school. : > I love anime, drawing manga, and I'm a competitive Preliminary Champion Irish dancer. This is the first website I joined, the first forum I joined, and the first site I became a mod in (and the only one, at that XD)
I love making friends and I try to be friendly and kind to everyone. I'm also very hyper. XP

What is it about pokemon that attracted you here?: I didn't come here because of Pokemon

Reading over this...lots of people got promoted from being a mod in a few months. I lasted for years D; Anyway, not much else to say. I'm in university and I don't post here very often now.

Other Chat, Other Voting Polls, and Pokémon General. Exactly what I wanted. Yusss!
How many times have you been promoted?
I became one of 10 new Moderators on January 13th, 2004 (...thanks to that old "mod test" or whatever) and was promoted to Super Moderator sometime in September 2004. I still remember when Kairi/Abby told me about it over AIM. I totally flipped out, heh.
What is it about Pokémon that attracted you here?
Uh, actually...I used to stalk the forums and steal pictures from peoples' signatures to put on my website. I was such a n00b. XD; Eventually I decided to join, and became hooked because everyone was so friendly. The Pokémon stuff was only a bonus.

A lot of the members here were more up-to-date with the latest anime news than I was, so I'd get info from them and act like I actually knew stuff around my other friends. @_@ Pfft.

Eh. Can't really sleep anyhow.

When did you join PC?
May 6, 2006, sometime in the afternoon. I believe it was a day off for me, and I had nothing better to do. I found PC by doing a Google search for "Pokemon forums" and PC was one of the first two that I saw. I was somewhat addicted to Pokemon forums after joining SPPf.

I also joined another forum the same day, but PC is the only forum I remain active on. Because I love power.

When you first got promoted what section did you get?
The same one I have now: Pokemon Fanfiction. It's only recently been changed to PFF&P, but when I was modded, it was Pokemon Fanfiction.

I was promoted to my modship November 4, 2007 around 11:00 at night after coming home from work. I remember being unable to sleep that night.

How many times have you been promoted?
Twice, if one would enjoy counting that time that I was demoted for a week back in September. I'm still wondering why I came back. I think I was paid. But I got my same old section back, and the regular members rejoiced. Now they're trying to kill me.

What is it about pokemon that attracted you here?
I originally joined because I loved the ideas of forums, where fans from all over the world could communicate over a common bond. After a while, my interest in Pokemon has died down to where I have no idea what's going on anymore, but I still hang around because people won't let me leave. And I write my fics, and would like to get readers for them. So I bug people by going "read my non-existent fics!"

-

Outside of PC, I mostly work as a general all-around grocery store employee. I should be a bagger at the store, but instead I cover most of the various departments in the place because they don't feel like hiring people. Sometimes I act like a manager there, but I don't get paid enough to deal with all that. So I hide in the back room for a few hours.

I have a college degree, which I got this May. I want to go back to college to get a degree in Health Inspection and become a state health inspector, but I'm having difficulties finding a college around me with that degree program. So I'm waiting until I move down south to go back to college...maybe.

I'm not all work and no play. My favorite thing to do is be outside. I either take my dog for a walk in the woods to clear my head, or else I grab a notebook and pen and write my fanfics, or else I read. Reading is mainly what I'm known for, since everyone sees me with a book in my pocket and perhaps another one in my hands. My favorite author is Orson Scott Card, and he gets specific mention because honestly, my life is nothing without his books.

I sincerely hope no one relates to this. D:

How many times have you been promoted? None

What is it about pokemon that attracted you here? At the time I fangirled over Ash but not anymore.

and more information if you have any to give, do you have a job, what kind of education do you have, what is your major in college. such as things you like to do, anything that we the normal members can relate to:D

Oh, so ex-staff can post too?

When did you join PC?
April 27th 2004, not on this account.

When you first got promoted what section did you get?
Uh, when was it? I think it was like January 2005.
And I got Home of the Sprites. ("Pixel Art" is such a crappy name, hmpf)

How many times have you been promoted?
One time. From member to mod. Unless promotions only count as becoming higher staff- and, if so, then none.

What is it about pokemon that attracted you here?
The games and the mangá. I never really liked the anime that much, but I'm still a dedicated player and reader even today.

...and more information if you have any to give
do you have a job Nah.
what kind of education do you have, I'm in high school.
what is your major in college. lol
such as things you like to do, I spend all day playing videogames, reading mangá and watching anime. I also have probably stalked every member in this board. It'd be accurate to say I dedicate 90% of my life to my hobbies and 10% to my health.
anything that we the normal members can relate to I'll just leave a final message: Staff Members are just as human as you are- they just have a few less restrictions than you. I can't say for all of the staff, but I used to hate when people treated me as a higher leveled being or the second coming of Christ. And that's it.
