CC News Interview -- Optimus Prime

Postby samuelc812 on Tue Jul 07, 2009 11:32 pm

Hey Guys,

In the 13th issue of the Conquer Club Newsletter we will be sitting down for a chat with Site Administrator, Optimus Prime. Post any questions you may have for him here, and he will answer them in the 13th issue of the Conquer Club Newsletter.

Happy Conquering,

There are rumors floating around that you first put on the Optimus Prime helmet you made after a horrible boat accident and have never taken if off since...any truth to these?
Do you actually sleep in full Optimus Prime costume attire?
Do you speak transformer?
After being a MOD for CC, do you ever get depressed as the rest of your life just seems anti-climatic?
Do you like milk?

You have been a regular member, a moderator, and an admin. How have your views of the site changed throughout each position? Which position do you prefer, and why?

What made you decide to come out of retirement to be an admin?

When putting together your team, do you think it is best for the site to have many moderators who specialize in specific areas, or a few moderators who take care of things on a more holistic basis?

Who wins the debates: the alpha monkey or the last prime?

You are one of the most well known people on the site, For the most part you're very well respected but you also have some clear detractors. Like most of us you're human and have traits that assist and traits that detract from you in your mission's as one of the site's admin. Thus my question for you would be, what is your most important trait in making you a successful admin and which of your traits do you have to reign in to prevent yourself from getting off message

OP, you clearly have a devoted group of brown-nosers here on this site. How do you keep from letting all of the ass-kissing from going to your head?

OP, do you think the use of the term "moderator" (being derived from the word "moderate") is more, or less, ironic than Hitler supporting vegetarianism because he believed it to be spiritually regenerative?

OP, when the members of a hegemony refuse to answer legitimate interview questions put to them, do you call that agenda setting, astroturfing, or just plain ole moderation?

In addition to your Admin duties, how much time do you spend per day actually playing games? And how many active games do you have on average
Important Tournament Notice

The data for ALL of my tournaments has potentially been lost. I am working to recover it but as I am away on business all of this week, there will be some delay. Sincere apologies.
