My Raptr Profile where you can find links to all my various platform profiles, including Steam, as well as see how many hours of my life I've sunk into this hobby. Feel free to add me, but please message me and let me know you're from Gaming.SE.

Gaming.SE blog where I mostly edit, but sometimes contribute.

Platforms I own:

  • Nintendo Wii
  • Nintendo DSLite
  • Nintendo 3DS
  • XBox 360
  • Playstation 3
  • Playstation 2
  • Sony PSP-2000
  • Playstation Vita
  • PC, Windows 7

Genres I enjoy:

  • MMORPGs (City of Heroes, Guild Wars 1 & 2, various F2P MMOs)
  • RPGs (Final Fantasy series, BioWare games)
  • Music/Rhythm games (Rock Band/GH series, Audiosurf, Beat Hazard)
  • TBS (Civilization series)
  • RTS to some extent (Age of Empires, Command & Conquer, not a big StarCraft player)
  • Simulation/God games (Anno series, SimCity, Tropico, Dungeon Keeper, Evil Genius)
  • Action/Adventure (Zelda series, ICO/SotC, God of War series)
  • Arcade racers (Burnout series)
  • 3rd person open world sandbox games with exaggerated physics/reality (seriously, this practically a genre unto itself now... Prototype, Infamous, Crackdown, Saints Row series, Just Cause 1/2, Arkham Asylum/City)
  • weird, quirky indie games whose qualities I have trouble quantifying (Recettear, The Void, The Path)
  • Basically nearly anything except for sports games like FIFA/Madden/UFC/etc.

comment Is there an Animal Crossing City Folk face guide?
@Frank This is actually a very answerable question. There's only a total of 24 faces and the method of determining them is very straightforward. This wouldn't end up as something like a walkthrough guide or anything like that, it's just a chart.

comment Are Playstation 4 games locked to a certain region?
@Ozmah The way to get around it is to make an EU account that you keep on the same PS3. Your NA account will have access to anything downloaded on the PS3 with the EU account. For example, mine is NA and my boyfriend's account is EU. Our copy of The Last of Us is EU so we have an EU season pass. DLC is downloaded through his account, I log into my account and can then play the DLC. Unfortunately, yes, your purchases well be split across 2 accounts, but there's no other way, as account's can't change region out be multi-region.

comment Are Playstation 4 games locked to a certain region?
@Ozmah Note that your store access will still be bound to whatever region your current PSN account is. I'm presuming since you're from Mexico that you have a NA account. You will still only have access to the NA store. If you want to buy from the European store, you'll have to make another account. Also note that games that you buy will have EU DLC codes and Cross-Buy codes will also be EU. I have a NA account and run into this problem as well.

comment Are there a limited number of Oculi?
I'm a little confused at what you're saying "yes" to, as the asker's last sentence was an "or" statement and the title asks if there is a limited number, but your answer implies there is not. Can you clarify?

comment Are upgrades per character?
@AshleyNunn Yeah. :( It's one of the design decisions that's been received rather poorly.

comment Are traps supposed to have false positives now?
@Yamikuronue Yeah, I sometimes end up having to pick them up and drop them a few times before they're in just the right spot. I try to make it so the stick is as close to the hole as possible.

One of the core messages of the "Let's be nice to each other" post was that a lot of the onus is on regular users to encourage a welcoming/friendly environment. You're one of (currently) 5 candidates who are sub-10k and have no experience with the site's moderation tools. With your current privileges, you can still flag for other mods to do cleanup, and when you hit 10k, you can do even more. Given those points, I'm unsure why you want to be a mod over simply increasing your rep. Other candidates also have other moderating and community management experience. How do you stand out?

@Wipqozn Thanks for clarifying some of your points. So am I correct in assuming that handling user conflicts/problems is your primary platform? What qualities would you say you have to be able to handle this adeptly? You have fairly high Meta activity as a regular user. How active would you continue to be on Meta in regards to policy shaping discussions and how comfortable would you feel stepping up to enact the results of those discussions? Would you become more or less vocal/proactive in comparison to how you handled things as a regular user?

@LessPop Thought of something else. As Sterno mentioned, you're well known for your candor, for good or ill, and in addition to that, a sense of humor that extends to mocking/trolling Area 51 proposals that you find personally questionable and/or ridiculous. With a diamond by your name, you're a representative of our site as a whole, as you're well aware. Is this an activity you would continue to partake in were you to be elected or would you curtail it in light of becoming a moderator?

@Fluttershy You stated that undeleted/on-hold questions are your main concern though. Community activity is only quiet at certain times of the day, and closed questions needing deleted aren't nearly as urgent as, for example, items needing offensive/spam flags. Why does this issue, which honestly, to me, seems like a bit of a non-issue in comparison to the current discussions we're having about improving the new user experience and how proactive we want our mods to be, sit so high on your list?

@Ullallulloo "and maybe talk to people without just being another random person saying something." So you'd like to be able to speak with the authority of the diamond, is that correct? In what cases do you think that would make a difference as opposed to speaking out as a regular user, and why do you think it's important?

With regard to your Meta participation, is it correct to infer that you would consider yourself more of a "backseat" mod (to use LessPop's terms) than a frontseat mod? In what ways, if any, would you need to adjust your moderation style from how you moderate on Programmers to moderate here? You state that you'd fully support whatever projects the community desires. How would you handle the desire for community projects that you would view as potentially undesirable and/or unhealthy for the site as a whole?

You're a very active on both the site and chat, and you've had 10k tools for a while now. You're only 1k off of the 20k mark, which will give you access to all privileges. Changing how the site deals with problematic users would take more than just one mod voice; it would likely involve some discussion on Meta and community input and consensus. Why is this something you feel that moderators should handle over regular regular users? Would it not be enough to clear up the community stance on how to handle this via non-mod means? What else other than this issue drives you to be a mod?

You have a very low helpful flag count and your meta participation is rather low compared to other candidates. Given that both flagging and meta participation are important aspects of the site that non-moderators can partake in, can you explain why you haven't participated more in that regard and why you feel you need to be a moderator to continue furthering the site's development?
