Okay, A little birdy told me that you have a backstory to that name of yours.
Wow. That’s from back when I had my profile. The answer is: Yes. My name does have history behind it. 4 years of Roleplaying history to be precise. The original name was Kurushu Net Zefein of the BloodDragons.
And where did you roleplay?
I used to make several browserbased games my home. I’m not sure if any of them are still around. First there was Shimlar; then Shadar, which became Stratholm; and finally Shimlar once more before I retired the RP character.
Oh, and by the way, freaking excellent name. When did you first start kongregate?
and describe your early noobing days!
February 14th, 2008. Valentine’s Day. I was playing Protector on NewGrounds and noticed that the game had extra features for those who played on Kongregate. It was then that I discovered Kong’s challenge and badge system. Tired of only gaining 10exp per day on Newgrounds, I started an account here. Within 3 weeks I was level 16. In fact, you called me out at one point, claiming that I must have been cheating to have attained so many badges so quickly.
After only 4 short weeks on Kongregate, I was approached by Valkyrie, who asked if I wanted to be a moderator. 3 weeks after that conversation I became a mod and have made this my flash-community home.
and I called you out on cheating because you passed me up in levels, and that hurt!
And you’ve never caught me since. Bwahaha.
says kyru, in a scathing interview with me. Keep it up, I need more dirt on ya!
More dirt? I am probably one of a handful of mods who have asked to have their M taken away and also ask for it to be reinstated.
That aint dirt! Thats interesting pieces of your kong life! Oh, and do you have a favorite game, on or off kongregate?
Console Game: Super Smash Bros. 64. Kong Game: Tossup between GemCraft and Colourpods.
Ooooh, I lost a lot of time to all of those.
They’re pretty fun.
GemCraft was nostalgic for me because it had a D2+Horadric Cube feel.
what is that you do outside of kong?
I’m a Freshman in College. I’m currently working on General credits, but I plan to start on a Software Engineering degree in the Spring. Outside of school I’m usually listening to music and talking to friends either on IM, on the phone, or making plans to meet them somewhere.
okay, just a few more questions. How strict of a mod do you see yourself as?
I see myself as by-the-book, but not defined by them. I am lenient in cases where understandings can truly be met, but I have a talent for knowing when it is futile to try and difuse a situation. I’ve been three different types really. Back in my early days I was a pushover. During my time in Adventure Club I was a bit too strict, but now that I host Lyceum I find myself with a very nice balance.
So, a perfect balance for a perfect room. and you do own lyceum, yes?
That is correct.
looks like this interview is coming to a close. any shout outs or last words?
Uh. Hi Mom?
