what do you think of the site as a whole?

It's unique in what it does with creating trainers (which is a new way to cheat with video games as I certainly never heard of a trainer when I first signed up here). I can't really say that Cheat Happens is the best as right now it feels like the trainer business is in the Pioneering state right now. If anything, it feels like this site is more of a founding in this form of development. I predict that other sites will eventually get up and do the same. I'm not really sure about the future of the site though and sometimes worry if it'll get to a critical point where the current staff cannot keep up with the demand anymore and cause the site to plummet into a dark age sort of thing.

As for the user base, there are two of them. The social aspect which most people know and the trainer aspect (which is extremely different interaction than the social base). The social base has become into a tightly knitted community which is fine but has a lot of cliques that start up trying to do some radical thing which seems silly or stupid and ultimately either end up failing through self-collapse or because mods have to stop it. The trainer base of the site is extremely unstable and really volatile. The main problem is that 90% of them never really read the Forum Rules and the Terms of Service before they sign up and expect the service to cater to their every whim. It's just a classic case of people not lurking before they post and it's an absolute nightmare.

Where do you stand when it comes to Cheathappens?

When I first came here, I was like 13 or 14 years old and a really huge noob (like...what's an internet forum noob). Back then was considered a really dark age for my life as it's when I started a really out-of-control internet addiction coming on the site often as well as other forums. This site was really new and unheard of so it was really different (as it was my second place being a regular with GameFAQs being the first). Eventually I asked to become a mod to help out and the first team of mods was formed. Not much was done other than send threatening PMs to tell people to behave or else. Back then I was way more "iron fisted" with the way I handled users and things relatively were calm but I didn't gain a whole lot of attention. FFQueen put it rather well in saying that I used to be extremely intimidating.

Nowadays, more and more people say that I have a soft spot that can be seen easily. There are a few people that I thank for that slight transition as I probably couldn't have done it without them. I still have a semi-reputation to mod anyone on this site regardless of whether they're a friend or not. I know that I go unstable time again and again and it's something I want to change. I sometimes wonder if my charisma is simply because I'm a moderator or because of my extremely low user ID. Either way, I sometimes wonder if I could be more integrated as friends with other users if I wasn't a moderator and didn't have all that power and status in the way. Building a reputation and I guess what you called respect in this way is good and all, but I don't really like that approach to building a friendship with people here. Kind of an interesting barrier. Now I tend to lurk more than be active and keep other users in line as always.

What's your take on the Alice in Wonderland series?
I do not follow any of the things from this particular series/film/book/etc. No comment can be given.

What exactly do you think of me?
You're just some guy on the internet that I know. Not very exciting but we don't interact with each other in anyway other than being users on the same site so I can't exactly call you a friend nor have you done anything vile to make me hate you. I believe the official term would be "acquaintance"

What would you add or remove from the site if you could?

Oh dear...I can go on and on with many different things as I come across them.

There's a need for a lot of damage control of the moderation system between users. For social users, there isn't much of a problem, but a lot of the UNL Members develop that "I pay so I should be able to do whatever the hell I want on the forums" attitude and they get slammed when I have to throw the book at them since it's a breach of the site's TOS.

Probably the main problem is that the site isn't what it used to be years ago when most of the regular users of today were not here. The site grew A LOT but the staff hasn't done so that much. The amount of new demand on a staff that has only a few new members to develop and push trainers out is taking it's toll on the administration (I recall seeing that Caliber was working around midnight to update a trainer to keep the site up to date with the games).

Overall I think an expansion of a non-moderation staff that can help Caliber and PWizard and Nevermore each do their specific tasks would help out a lot. The only problem standing in that way is cost.

Another thing I would probably add is more variety in punishments. Yeah some members are extremely ****y, but the only solution is to swing the ban hammer if they don't stop. Two methods I'd probably add are temp bans and account mutes. The former simply banning the person for a limited time instead of permanently. The latter being the ability to simply take away a user's ability to use the forums (but still use trainers and etc). Posts just are not that big incentive to keep the members who only care about trainers and posting on the game boards.

I think that's all I got for now.

Well I watch e-Sports so we might not be exactly on the same channel.

Still...you never see this much excitement on ESPN
