What, to date, has been your most rewarding experience as a member of ATS staff?


Same as above. Setting a member on the right path and seeing them flourish. I'd name names, I'm proud of them but they might not appreciate the attention. THAT'S the best part.


If you had a chance to speak to the younger version of you as the younger version was just joining the site, what would you tell them?


Don't do what I did.



What would you say is the most difficult part of being a staffer?


Differs from person to person. For me right now is seeing a divided board. Bickering, nastiness. It almost physically hurts.


If you could change one thing about the world, what would it be and why?


Make common sense common again. Then we have a base to work from.


And just for fun: what's your favorite book?


One that isn't an ebook. I like the feel of a novel in my hands. As to authors I'm big on Stephen King, Clive Barker, Tolkien. Basically horror/fantasy.

Bwahahahahahaha. EO is a "HE" but I can see where one could make that mistake.

I thought we had been had in that thread.
But I figured it was worth checking to make sure.

I owe you one EO.

I admire any man who is able to look the worst of themselves in the eye and not back down. It takes courage to face an enemy on the battlefield, but it takes character to face the enemy in your heart. Those authors make a brilliant demonstration of those tests, and it's awesome to see that reflected in one of the staff.

Is it true that in the MOD initiation ceremony you sacrifice 3 sheep and then take turns paddling the new MOD for 20 minutes?

Firstly congrats on a great thread and thanks for the opportunity to interact.

Do mods get 'flags' to keep an eye out for certain members posts ?
Do you ever 404 and think later, that was a tad harsh of me ?
Can I buy you drink ?

GREAT thread. I've always wondered how do you decide who moderates what thread?

Straws and mud wrestling, and the occasional overly aggressive round of rock paper scissors.

I didn't know he posted those pictures to the members forums as well.

Personally stats mean little to me. As to looking for a members posts I think we all have members that we enjoy reading their material. Different for everyone.

Not really. Some staffers may be more apt to think, "We should have shut that down sooner." We try to err on the side of caution. Sometimes that's not the way to go.

Can you afford 25 year old Glenmorangie?

Does elevatedone have a Snoopy tattoo?
Does Heff see someone professionally for his Daryl fixation?



Oh, I so hope he doesn't lose that fixation...I love looking at those avatars.

75. Some are more active than others. It's voluntary so you can't say you have to be here for any given time. Life creeps in from time to time to keep people away. That is encouraged. RL always comes first.

Now, for my question: Is Byrd really male? This has been a question of mine for years (and it was answered by Byrd in the affirmative) but does anyone else really know for sure?
