Hello, guys! It's Marh here with a fabulous interview with our friendly moderator, Ukos! (don't be afraid, he doesn't bite)
Marh: So, we'll start out with your modship. You were modded ... fairly recently? ... what was your first reaction?
Ukos: I was modded at the start of January, actually.
Marh: Oops, my bad.
Ukos: My first reaction was something along the lines of: "wow... so this is the kind of thing all those other mods deal with all the time... crazy stuff."
Ukos: I'm pretty sure I got called to 6 different rooms in the first 24 hours, all of which had crazy things going on in them.
Marh: Busy stuff.
Ukos: No kidding.
Marh: My next question was "what were you first 24 hours", but... I suppose you answered that.
Ukos: Heh, yeah. It was fun, just really busy.
Marh: Who were some of your first friends on Kongregate?
Ukos: Hmm... I think my first friends on Kongregate were some of the the people who drew me into the idea of chatting in the first place: some of the Mostly Harmless regulars.
Marh: Mostly Harmless is a great room.
Ukos: Specifically, I0wrld3r, PowerfrogsBeotch, and Sweetywrapper, if I had to name a few.
Ukos: I kept seeing their names pop up, while playing my games and thought "Hey, these seem like pretty cool people... I should chat too!"
Marh: Cool. : )
Marh: What are some of your favorite games here?
Ukos: How many are we talking?
Marh: As many as you'd like.
Ukos: Fair enough.
Ukos: I think my favourite Puzzle game on the site is Z-Rox, although sola-rola is pretty high up there as well.
Ukos: I like Frantic and Areas as shooters, and Dino Run is one of the few race-type games I really, really enjoy.
Ukos: And, of course, You Have To Burn The Rope. =P
Marh: Haha, indeed. ;P
Marh: Some of your favorite rooms on the site?
Ukos: Well, I don't travel extensively, so I haven't really gotten to know many of the rooms, but I do have two favourites: Mostly Harmless, the room I settled into when I first got here because I liked the name, which turned out to be my home for a long time, and Xanadu, which is where I went when I left Mostly Harmless, and is now my new home.
Marh: Never been to Xanadu, I suppose I'll have to visit?
Ukos: I like it there, anyway.
Marh: So tell us about Xanadu. It's overall personality and things that make it unique. : )
Ukos: Hmm... How to describe Xanadu... to describe it through simile: Xanadu is like a low-budget yet good movie.
Ukos: Most of the time you really enjoy it, but at times you're sitting there going "really guys? really?". =P
Marh: Lol, I know that feeling. xD
Ukos: On the whole, Xanadu is pretty friendly and chatty, although it definitely has times when it gets quiet for a while.
Marh: What would you say are some of your favorite things about Kongregate?
Ukos: Apart from the fact that it has enough games to sink a ship, I really like the community on Kongregate.
Marh: Haha, indeed.
Marh: Never heard somebody say that before. ; )
Ukos: The badges are what caught my eye when I was looking for a new game site, and I definitely enjoy trying to beat all the challenges, but it was the chat community that made me stay.
Ukos: I've recently discovered the forum community as well, which is a totally different, but also great experience, albeit one that's a bit harder to get into casually.
Marh: Yeah, much more intelligent users here than you'd suppose.
Marh: So, maybe I'm going in circles here, but I want ask a question about modding. What would say are some funny experiences you've had modding?
Ukos: Hmm... I'm trying to think of something that would be labelled a funny mod experience...
Ukos: I can think of plenty of odd ones, like the fact that a UK street gang occaisionally meets in Xanadu...
Ukos: But I don't know, apart from watching people argue themselves so far into a corner that they've totally changed sides, I can't really think of anything particularily entertaining and mod-related to talk about.
Marh: Interesting. :3
Marh: How about them memes?
Ukos: I have over 9000 mudkipz.
Marh: Nice, dood.
Ukos: To be honest, I don't know what to do with this many.
Marh: Shammy them.
Ukos: Possibly. =P
Marh: So, our interview is almost over... Any last notes?
Ukos: Yes, two: Firstly, If you have a goal of getting many of Kongregates' badges, it's possible, no matter how hard it may seem at first.
Ukos: And Second: Breakfast cereal is certainly not only for breakfast, no matter what anyone tells you.
Marh: yasrsly same with waffled
Marh: Well, that wraps up out interview!
Marh: It was GREAT chatting with you.
