Today we will be interviewing MayorTim, who has won the Member of the Month award for May 2006.
When did you join Simtropolis?
I joined on October 11th, 2003.
Why did you join Simtropolis?
I found Simtropolis by following a link on the official site, and originally I just lurked around looking at city journals (there was no STEX back then). I finally decided to join so that I could start a cj of my own.
Did you ever expect to win the MOTM?
Nope, it came as a complete surprise.
Why did you think you were nominated for the MOTM?
Well, apparently, it was "For being an excellent chatter, contributing to the community with city journals, and being an overall friendly member of the site." lol
Will winning the MOTM inspire you to do more for the community?
Winning the MOTM showed me that I must be doing something right, so hopefully I will be able to continue doing what I am now for a long time to come. I have also started messing with the BAT, but for the sake of the community I won't be showing them off or uploading them.
What do you do outside of Sim City 4 and Simtropolis in your free time?
I really enjoy surfing, and when I have the money I also like to play Paintball.
What are your favorite Simtropolis moments?
Rybolton's proposal to Samantha was definitely one of my favorite moments, and, of course, winning this MOTM.
Do you have a job?
Not currently, though I am looking into getting a job at Walmart or something similar.
What has been your main contributions to the site?
I don't feel I have made any major contributions to the site; my parents won't let me donate money, so I guess all I have really done is helping newbies and creating city journal after city journal (all pictures hosted off-site, of course).
Do you have anything else that you would like to share with us?
I would just like to thank everyone for nominating me for this MOTM, Dirk for creating Simtropolis, my mom and dad for creating me, everyone on here who has given me support over the years, the BATers, Oliver Lang (Best Pro Paintballer EVER!) and everyone else.
Thanks MayorTim for joining us today!
