    An Interview with Blue_Lightning

    When did you join Simtropolis?

    I joined on a stormy day on October 31st

    Why did you join Simtropolis?

    I joined because I stumbled upon some custom content tutorials on Youtube and the links lead me here. First reason I guess was just to download stuff, but later I got interested in making custom content.

    Did you ever expect to win the MOTM?

    I didn't give it much thought, I was quite surprised when I saw my name next to SWAT-MEDIC's, even more so that he nominated me.

    Why did you think you were nominated for the MOTM?

    I guess mainly because I'm almost always helping someone out (usually in chat) or "gently" toeing some people back in line (again, in chat). I also do help people out in the forums, but (until recently when I switched to Firefox) I didn't do that much due to lag.

    Will winning the MOTM inspire you to do more for the community?

    Well I guess so, but I'll be helping out and making custom content anyways, so...

    What do you do outside of Sim City 4 and Simtropolis in your free time?

    I am in school, so that takes most of my time (at least during school). I am a music type person, so on occasion I compose music, I play alto sax in school, I listen to quite a bit of music (especially video game music & its remixes, trance/techno type things). I read books and fanfics every now and then. When I'm not doing those things, I'm usually out with my friends, working with stuff around the house, or outside biking or running (I'm a fast runner actually)

    What are your favorite Simtropolis moments?

    Oh gee this is going to be tough. Well lets see... I'd have to say they all happened in chat (no offense to you forum dwellers). But I might say when Boggy1 kicked me out for 5 min after I asked what does a kicked person see (after someone else was kicked earlier).

    The other canidate would probably be the NO_ACCESS incident where Xyloxadoria found a link to the banned page and quite a few people clicked it (this all happened in chat) So then any page we tried to access redirected us to the NO_ACCESS page and so Rybolton had to contact Dirk to reset the IP bans.

    Do you have a job?

    Well as I said above, I'm in school, and frankly not old enough to legally have a job 3.gif

    If you were stuck on a deserted island with one Simtropolis member, who would it be?

    Oh well this is a tough one... I don't think I can choose just one so uh.... hold on a sec.

    *hac...err, I mean...modifies the MOTM Interview file and changes some "numbers"*

    Well I'd take the rest of the NAM Team, a few people such as b22rian, pagenotfound, simmaster07, Duke of York, Xyloxadoria, Zezug, a few others I can't recall in the wee hours of the morning, a few moderators (probably Boggy and Swat), and uh... I guess thats about it 3.gif

    What has been your main contributions to the site?

    My main contributions would probably be all the transit modding I do. Second up would be helping people in chat.

    Do you have anything else that you would like to share with us?

    This is such a great community, filled with awesome people!

    Thanks for chatting!
