"Meet the PokeCommunity'ers" is a series of the Daily Bloggity in which I have a one-on-one with specific members of PC in which we can get to know them more. All responses are in their own words, and questions were made on a general basis. If you would like to see a specific user in the next edition, comment below! This will be a weekly series appearing in the Daily Bloggity at 5 PM Eastern Time every Sunday.

[css-div="text-shadow: 2px 2px 5px #000000"]When did you become a member of PokeCommunity and how did you come across it?[/css-div]
July 2015. I came up across PC like most of us I guess. I was looking to learn more about rom-hacking and when I checked the forums I realized how big of a community this was and how much time it had passed since I was active on a forum.

[css-div="text-shadow: 2px 2px 5px #000000"]Oh so are you into ROM Hacking? Did you end up learning more about it since you've joined the site?[/css-div]
More like, I've always been interested in making a hack rom, but so far I haven't dare to try. I learned a lot of the basics. I know what constitutes creating a hack rom and how to approach it, but since I've never really tried, I wouldn't be the best hacker out there haha.

[css-div="text-shadow: 2px 2px 5px #000000"]What is the significance or origin behind your username? Past usernames?[/css-div]
The significance is quite easy to figure out haha. Johnny is a diminutive of my name (Jonathan) and Mustang because well, FMA. The origin now... Some years ago someone hacked my facebook account and uploaded a porn video. Obviously they closed my account. I tried to get it back and I got an email saying that they were processing the request but it might take some days. So I decided to make an alt until they give me the main account, the thing is: they never gave it back to me. Some days later I was called to work at a night club and the manager wrote my list of guests in name of "Jonathan Mustang" and after that day everyone started calling me Mustang haha. I guess it just stuck with me.

[css-div="text-shadow: 2px 2px 5px #000000"]Did you enjoy the nickname at the time? What was your position at the night club (you're totally a sexy male stripper right?[/css-div]
Absolutely. Compared to most nicknames, this one is pretty cool :P I started leaving invitations in bar/pubs and ended up hiring people to do what I used to do. I don't know about sexy or stripper, but I'm male alright :p haha

[css-div="text-shadow: 2px 2px 5px #000000"]Which forum do you see yourself gravitating towards the most and why?[/css-div]
That would be The Underground. Besides the fact that I love mafia games, The Underground was the first forum where I made friends here on PC.

[css-div="text-shadow: 2px 2px 5px #000000"]How do you feel about the growth of The Underground? Do you think that it's in a good place since when it started?[/css-div]
It's undeniable the amazingly quick growth of the section. I don't know of any other section unrelated to pokemon with this kind of movement. I think it's in a perfect place, but the real challenge starts now. It'll be hard to keep it so active.

[css-div="text-shadow: 2px 2px 5px #000000"]You've just come across a new user who just joined the site. You must now make a pitch to get him to come to The Underground. Go![/css-div]
Like I said to someone once: There's no reason you shouldn't at least check it out, unless you don't like competitive games in which your skills relies solely on your intelligence or eloquence.

[css-div="text-shadow: 2px 2px 5px #000000"]If you could make any improvement to the site, what would it be and why? If you can't think of anything, what would you like to stay consistent?[/css-div]
Personally: Considering how big of a forum this is, I would try to extend it beyond Pokémon. 99,99% of the users are here for something at least slightly related to Pokémon, but every single one of them has other interests (Music, Sports, Art and Designs, etc) so personally I would like to give music, a shot. But besides my personal preferences I believe this site holds potential for almost everything, even The Mall lol.

Daily Music - "Another Brick In The Wall" by Pink Floyd


[css-div="text-shadow: 2px 2px 5px #000000"]Do you think that music has the potential to stand alone as it's own forum here on PokeCommunity? If so, how would you go about running it if you were Moderator of it?[/css-div]
I think every little thing you can came up with, has the potential to stand alone here on PC. You already have the main requirement, which is people. I would try something to hype people about the idea, kind of like what you did with the bands battle (which is pretty cool btw). Doing stuff like that is openning a door to potential discussions, healthy rivalries and with any luck, encouraging people to do it again.

[css-div="text-shadow: 2px 2px 5px #000000"]If you could moderate any section on PokeCommunity, which section which you choose and why? What would be the section you would least like to moderate?[/css-div]
If I could? Hmm. The A&D: First, because it could use a new moderator and second because I'm pretty much moderating it already from the shadows haha. Fairy and I always talk about the section, and with her current LoA I try to help her with everything she needs.
The section I'd the least is "Pokémon Anime" simply because I don't like the anime shotdead haha.

[css-div="text-shadow: 2px 2px 5px #000000"]Any particular reason why you don't like the Pokemon anime?[/css-div]
Not really. It's not like is an awful anime, but is clearly made for young people (kids) and I'd much rather waste my time with a mediocre anime made for adults haha.

[css-div="text-shadow: 2px 2px 5px #000000"]Who would you consider a role model for yourself, in real life and/or on PC?[/css-div]
In real life, Roger Waters. He isn't mind-blowing skilled with instruments, but he made a mind-blowing group, which is more ten times more amazing, in my opinion. I'm a big fan of Pink Floyd, if I had never listened to them, my life would be really different now. I would've never been so invested in music, I would've never had any bands, never met a lot of friends and so on.

In PC I don't have any, I don't know anyone for more than a year to start with haha. But I guess I'd like to do pixels and traditional art like Fairy and Nina does, they're just awesome haha.

[css-div="text-shadow: 2px 2px 5px #000000"]So you're really invested in music? Do you play any instruments?[/css-div]
I play a few, but guitar mostly. And yes, I love music and I love creating music and playing it. There's nothing like it, going up the stage knowing that a lot of people is gonna hear you play, and they might even enjoy it :P

[css-div="text-shadow: 2px 2px 5px #000000"]What is your favorite pokemon and why?[/css-div]
Scyther :B Not much to say here, I like the design, it's pretty damn cool haha.

[css-div="text-shadow: 2px 2px 5px #000000"]But Scizor is way more badass than Scyther, right?[/css-div]
Please... Scyther would beat the muk out of Scizor.

[css-div="text-shadow: 2px 2px 5px #000000"]If you were granted a wish and could wish for anything - besides more wishes and more genies - what would you wish for and why?[/css-div]
If this was a real offer I'd probably spend days trying to figure out what I want but I'm not gonna do that now haha. Off the top of my head? I'm a lazy person and who doesn't like superpowers? Teleportation would suit me haha.

Daily Comic - "Delusions" by Anonymous

[css-div="text-shadow: 2px 2px 5px #000000"]If you could teleport, where would the first place you'd teleport be?[/css-div]
Tough one. After I hit some banks, I'd visit some friends around the globe most likely :P

[css-div="text-shadow: 2px 2px 5px #000000"]What is your favorite video game or series and why?[/css-div]
Final Fantasy series. Almost every FF game has an incredible story, involving plot twists, drama, emotions, a quest, heroic moments, everything! And not only that, the mechanics are amazing. Even today I still play old FF games. Two games I finished re-playing FF IX.

[css-div="text-shadow: 2px 2px 5px #000000"]What are your thoughts then on the upcoming Final Fantasy XV that is due to come out this Fall?[/css-div]
I'm not sure what to think of this. If I was forced to give an answer I'd say that I'm a bit disappointed, because you don't know whether they're trying to innovate or stay in touch with the original style. Supposedly the story will turn around a world in where each nation has a crystal (like in FF IV) but you'll be using only one character and every time a new game is released, it is much more like a shooter and less like an RPG.

[css-div="text-shadow: 2px 2px 5px #000000"]Who is your favorite video game character and why?[/css-div]
This is a tough one. I don't know if this is my favorite, but it's certainly one of the characters that entertained me the most: Zidane from FF IX. First of all he was a fresh take from the previously depressive main characters haha. Even now, I feel identified with him, he always tried to stay calm, even in the worst of situations.

[css-div="text-shadow: 2px 2px 5px #000000"]What would you say is your dream vacation?[/css-div]
All my friends, take a month off and get the hell out. I don't care where really, as long as all my friends are there. We've done this already, but it's been a few years so I'd like to do it again.

[css-div="text-shadow: 2px 2px 5px #000000"]Where did you end up going the last time around with your friends?[/css-div]
We ended up in the house of a friend of my grandma, we didn't even tell her we were going lmao. We had no place to stay so we went to her house and she wasn't there, when she got home she run up into 6 guys having lunch in her house :P.It's a place near my city, not really fancy but extremely cool if you just wanna hang out with your friends.

[css-div="text-shadow: 2px 2px 5px #000000"]Who is your favorite artist/song?[/css-div]
As I already mentioned, it's Roger Waters/Pink Floyd and I could never pick one song. When I listen to Pink Floyd, I play whole albums.

Daily Video - "Final Fantasy VII: Cloud Goes Shopping" by ADHD

[css-div="text-shadow: 2px 2px 5px #000000"]What would you say is your favorite TV or cartoon to watch as a kid?[/css-div]
Every morning before I went to school, I watched angry beavers haha, those guys cracked me up a lot. Sometimes when no one was home, I used to skip school to watch Gundam Wing lol (Don't do that, kids). I was also very fond of Buffy The Vampire Slayer haha. My mother loved that show and we used to watch it together.

[css-div="text-shadow: 2px 2px 5px #000000"]Outside of PokeCommunity, what are your favorite hobbies? What interests you?[/css-div]
Let's see: Since I was kid I've been in the music area. I've had plenty of bands by now; sadly, the most succesful I've been as a musician, was as a solo artist, and not really succesful either. I used to work at a few pubs, as a regular musician. I also like to play Basket ocassionally.

[css-div="text-shadow: 2px 2px 5px #000000"]Basket? What is that?[/css-div]
Basketball :P

[css-div="text-shadow: 2px 2px 5px #000000"]Want to give a shoutout to a fellow PC'er?[/css-div]
I'll take this opportunity to give a shoutout to Kirby. She's the living image of what a moderator should be like, she always listen to us A&D's regulars and cares about our opinions a lot! Well, that's it.

    Just going to leave this here for Johnny ;)

    It's obvious that a lot of these questions were answered a while ago, so I wonder if he's happy with the directions some of what he commented on have taken.
