Maltos's News

Posted by Maltos - 2 weeks ago


This is an interview with @WendingoVDB


Maltos - Lets start in 6/26/2021 when you joined. How did you find Newgrounds and what keeps you here 2.1K posts later?

(Here Is Your First Post Ever )

iu_413161_4272266.png


WendingoVDB - Well, this is something I answered before on an AMA: I discovered Newgrounds by watching Oneyplays and listening to Sleepycabin skits... And I kept seeing more and more artists I liked on this site, so I thought it'd be a good idea to join. The reason why I'm still here is because I just really like the sense of routine the site gives me.

------------------------------------------


Maltos - You've submitted 89 Pieces of art here is the latest (Below) What inspires or motivates your art?

iu_413162_4272266.png


WendingoVDB - I'm gonna be real with you. My only motivation are the numbers, man. They're the only way of me knowing someone out there is into the stuff I make. When I'm drawing I try to make something for me to enjoy, but if I'm posting it on NG I gotta make sure my followers can enjoy it too.

---------------------------------------------------------


Maltos - You've recently interviewed @cupheadswife what made you want to interview cupheadswife? will you be doing more interviews? https://www.newgrounds.com/art/view/wendigovdb/the-cesspit-ep-1-wife-time

(The Cesspit )


WendingoVDB - I didn't choose to interview her. As stated in my casting post, the guest selection is completely random. Either way, it was either her or @Plsblossom. And... Yeah, I'm gonna be making many more episodes of The Cesspit in the future (with luck). Episode 2 Casting might still show up in the BBS this week.

WendingoVDB -They make me feel absolutely nothing, I don't know what the fuck they mean.

--------------------------------------------------


Maltos - You are a regular on the BBS are there any users you like or dislike?


WendingoVDB - Well, Wife, @SleepyAss54 @Cyronix @PudgieDaFrog @Chdonga @DrunkGecko @UggoSonno @Wegra @Levi0nL1ne @Purbell... I consider these people friends (included but not limited to, there's many other people I could list here). As for the rest of the BBS, I can't really say I dislike people. Like in real life, even if someone hates my guts, I try to stay peaceful with them by any means. If I was ever mean to anyone, sorry if you had to see my lowest, weakest side. There isn't anyone on Newgrounds I hate, there's just people that I try to stay neutral with.

-------------------------------------------------


Maltos - How do you feel about the forum MODs?


WendingoVDB - Boy, have I heard about the forum mods... People that have been here on NG longer than I might have some really nasty things to say about the mods, but I don't think I do? I've had a little problem some days ago and @Turkeyonastick and @Fro were pretty helpful towards me. I'll say I'm 50/50 towards the staff.

-----------------------------------------------------


Maltos - Who are you when you're away from Newgrounds?

WendingoVDB - Your most average Joe.

I'm pretty social in school and I can grow a group of friends with ease, which is why I'm waiting for school to start again. But do I get picked on? I do, I do. Can I also "dismiss" my friends by forcing them into the stuff I like? I can and I have.

For all those anti-socials reading this: Social interaction is like an egg race: It looks really hard and it is really hard until you realise you can just grab that stupid egg and carry it in your hand to the finish line.

-------------------------------------------------


Maltos - If you could say one thing to @TomFulp what would it be?


WendingoVDB - "cock joke"

----------------------------------------------


Maltos - Who would you like to see interviewed next?


WendingoVDB - Maltos. BBS usuals seems to really like him, and I bet they all wanna know about the mind of The Crack Rabbit himself.

This Is An Interview With Mist


Maltos - Lets Start Back in 10/27/2017 when you started, how did you find Newgrounds and what keeps you here 477 posts later?


Mist - I've had older accounts and been on newgrounds a long time on and off. I like the design of newgrounds where you can submit multiple types of media and have it all neatly on one page, since I make music and art, this place really helps me show my work.

--------------------------------------------------------------

Maltos - You've submitted 81 pieces of art. What inspires or motivates your art work?


Mist - I've been drawing since I was a kid. I got back into it a few years ago and started doing digital art and become kind of obsessed. I'm mainly inspired by science fiction, fantasy, and retro video games.

All my art is concept art for video games I want to make in the future. That being said, I don't consider myself an artist, but a designer.

--------------------------------------------------------------

Maltos - You've submitted 67 audio submissions tell us about your music.


Mist - I started playing piano and drums since I was a kid. That taught me music theory and stuff. I gave them up because I wasn't progressing. So I changed genres all together and started making Electronic and Rap music. Listening to underground electronic, retro video game OST's, and mostly 90's Rap. I love experimenting and trying to push my music to the limit. Even though I've only made a few metal songs, I am really inspired by progressive metal because it's complex and progressive. I don't have much of a following yet but I enjoy doing it anyway. I enjoy challenging myself and always try to improve.

--------------------------------------------------------------

Maltos - Who are you when you're away from Newgrounds?


Mist - I'm just some asshole that likes to be creative.

---------------------------------------------------------------

Maltos - What do you do for work?


Mist - I've had many jobs in the past, mostly customer service jobs. They never lasted long because I am not a good people person. I have a year of college done then I dropped out, it wasn't for me. So now I don't work, I suffer from anxiety and depression among other things.

------------------------------------------------

Maltos - You've been the center of conversation on the BBS tell us about that.


Mist - I get attention easily just by being myself, whether it's positive or negative. I believe the earth is flat and the moon landings were faked and that seems to really piss people off. A few will have a civil conversation about it with me but most will just laugh and call me a retard, and I find this sad. I just didn't wake up one day and have these beliefs, it's through years of research, and to get shit on, it really upsets me.

-----------------------------------------------------------------

Maltos - Are there any Users you like or dislike?


Mist - Yes, I like the intelligent users, and for the one's I dislike I'm not going to name names.

------------------------------------------------------------------

Maltos - How do you feel about the forum MODs?


Mist - Some are good, some are bad, just like the police.

-------------------------------------------------------------------

Maltos - This quote by Mark Twain is listed on your page, what does it mean to you?


"It's easier to fool people than to convince them that they have been fooled." -Mark Twain


Mist - I believe the powers that be (The Illuminati) control the world and tell us what to believe, and when you try to tell others these are false beliefs it's very hard because they are set in their ways.

----------------------------------------------------------------------

Maltos - If you could say anything to @Tomfulp what would it be?


Mist - Keep up the good work!

---------------------------------------------------------------------

Maltos - Who would you like to see interviewed next?


@Zoonotist


Mist - He is a talented musician and I would like to learn more about him.

An Interview With Cyberdevil


Maltos - Lets start in 1/17/04 when you first joined NG how did you find it and what keeps you here 35.3K posts later?


Cyberdevil - I actually joined a little earlier, as said post history might reveal if you go back far enough. ;)


Though at this point I'm not sure how or why. I was exploring the Internet - a brave new world I hadn't been particularly privy to before, and somehow stumbled upon this great place amidst a bundle of other practitioning pioneers in this rad realm of creative abandon.


The stats and submissions beckoned more than the community back then, but it's probably the latter that kept me here.


NG's such a wholesome place, so diverse. Nobody's an outcast when everybody is. I feel like it's managed to both stay relatively true to its roots and to keep expanding in a special kind of way, like a living historical heritage; hidden little utopia of collaboration and reward that I hope lives on forever! And doesn't ever get so mainstream that the recognition somehow destroys it.

It's also pretty addicting.

-----------------------------------------------

Maltos - You've submitted a lot of art work on NG throughout the years, what inspires your work?


Cyberdevil - My life, I think, as well as any other artistic shizzle I happen to peruse here or elsewhere.


There's probably at least one particular inspiration behind any one thing I make, wether that be a real event or just something I've seen that I somehow wanted to change or make my own somehow.


I feel like inspiration goes both ways too. If you stop trying to find it you lose the ability to. Best stay curious and aware of the world, and that way maybe your well of vision never wanes.

----------------------------------------------

Maltos - You have 295 audio submissions, I've listened to Beast

you provided vocals for this track, did you write the lyrcis and do you have other songs we can look forward to hearing?


Cyberdevil - I did indeed write the lyrics for Beast, and have for (I think - can't think of any exception right now - I take pride in writing my own stuff) all other audio tracks you might've heard my vocals on.


That particular one was initially my Day 16 submission for last years Inktober challenge, for which I've been writing/recording a verse each day instead of doing a more visual doodle, sometimes collabing with other musicians for an instrumental, sometimes going acapella. You can listen to the original upload of that one here: https://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/972283


@Quarl took a stab at revamping it and adding some much appreciated production quality to it! I'm not too good with that bit of it, as you can probably hear if you compare the two versions.


You can look forward to at least another thirty-one similar things this year too hopefully! Though hopefully not too similar. All new. All the way through October when all's cool.

And maybe some other stuff if I actually manage to start plowing through other waiting projects; eternal backlogs.

-------------------------------------------------------

Maltos - You recently lent your voice for Money Man https://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/804012


You've worked as a voice actor on several movies too such as

https://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/784601 a(Friday Night Funk ) and https://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/809509 Reduce 2: Pass of time part 1.


Tell us about those experiences and what do you enjoy most as a voice actor?


Cyberdevil - Money Man was a blast to work on (thanks for the opportunity @8BitAnt!), and a relatively simple gig compared to some of the others. Voice-wise.


Friday Night Funkin' Backstage in particular was a challenge since @recme knew exactly how we wanted my character to sound, and it wasn't a voice I'd done before, so it took some back and forth to get it right.


Which was great, and turned out great! No better way to develop than to really get out of your comfort zone.


As for Reduce I think it was the first series I might've been given the opportunity to voice anything in, and it's been ongoing for a few years now. The crew working on it is close-knit, and mainly Polish, so there is a certain language barrier that possibly affects the perceived authenticity of the script a bit, but if you've been around NG a while you'd probably enjoy it! It's classic stickfigure animation with a twist, and hardware hungry detail levels.


I've been jumping on VA roles occasionally lately since it feels like a fun and not too complicated way to get involved and contribute to things, while also helping me hone my vocals. I'd like to dabble more with music so anything that deals with sound seems like the right thing to get into too.


If anyone needs a VA for anything feel free to reach out! Dark and demonic's maybe my specialty... so far.

----------------------------------------------------

Maltos - You have a vast interest in poetry and haikus, here are a few

Tell us about your creative process and what inspires you.


So little is known

Of the thrones that we sit on.

With the brittlest bone.


Break through the breakthrough!

Revolutionize! Make due!

Don't forget: break too.


Ancient rust peels off

Leaves me with a dusty cough

Here we go again


Cyberdevil - As with music the main inspiration behind my poetry's probably just life. Trials and tribulations and tidbits of everyday woe and all. The worse everything occasionally seems to be the better a source for material for me. It's the customized creative vent and verbal therapy I've come to rely on, which is why most of my poetry has a more existential; philosophical; potentially psychologically detrimental tone, when everything just sucks and... I get inspired.


Writing it out at such times makes everything suck less, and the more it sucked the better material I seem to end up with, which occasionally inspires me further and brings forth some more optimistic themes and further fuels said aspirations with creations.


TLDR: Experiences and observations. Anything's potential inspiration.


My writing process is very simple. I just write. Either I sit down with the intention of writing something, in which case it might take a while before I get an idea - occasionally I brainstorm a little to warm up. Or inspiration just strikes and I have to write things down quick before the thought or feeling fades.


When inspiration rides in there's no hiding! Just let the pen flow then so as to not go mental and when you've spent all that's senseless and detrimental you can then slow and... correct typos and such. But not too much.


I probably should take more time to polish my prose sometimes, but if I start trying to perfect things too much it often feels like the essence gets lost in the process.

Cyberdevil - Proud. :)


My current EXP rank coincidentally coincides with my birth year, my global rank's a nice and even ten, there's a couple of lucky sixes there, I'm still working on the full 100K EXP but that'll take a while...


Honestly I'm a bit conflicted when I see my stats.


On the one hand I feel like they're a testament to my tenacity and discipline in this one regard. And that if I can stay as committed to this one thing as I have, then I can with anything. It feels like a proof of concept, or accomplishment. That dreams are in reach, and I can do whatever I set my mind to.


On the other hand it might all be just a massive waste of time. But I hope that feeling never takes over.


It's probably only a risk if I don't live a good life otherwise. Outside NG, too.

--------------------------------------------------------------------

Maltos - Tell us about your user name and why you chose it.


Cyberdevil - I love DOOM, and when I signed up here Cyberdemon (one of the most vicious beasts portrayed therein - and probably my favorite) was taken, as was my real name (Bob), as were some of the other options I'd used on a limited number of communities before this, so I twisted things up a bit and this was that twist!


I've been using it everywhere else since, to the point it feels synonymous with me now. You can read into it whatever you like, but just know that Cyberspace = the Internet. The Devil = better than a demon/someone who's good at something.


And that I am in fact not a Satanist.

------------------------------------------------

Maltos - What Effect has NG had on you?


Cyberdevil - Massive! Mass Effect. A profound one.


might have been irrevocably scarred for life growing up on early NG content like the infamous celebrity torture games and Happy Tree Friends - with cute little animals for example accidentally gouging their eyes out with electric kitchen whisks, but on the brighter side it also introduced me to art in a way I just hadn't been before. As a way of life. And expression. And taught me how central and contagious a part of everything it can so easily become if you have the mind for it.


I discovered Flash. I found out anyone could make things with it. I learned how to animate. I learned how to make interfaces. I bought an unreasonably expensive hosting account I planned to launch a full-fledged NG clone with, and started learning to code as well. I drew, I made music, I tried my hand at all forms of creative crafts I stumbled upon, started submitting stuff, started feeling acknowledged, started connected to people...'


This was social media before the term existed, and a game, and as far as I know also the best education system I could have ever stumbled upon at the time.


In school I took a webdesign course, but didn't need to attend classes since it was clear I already knew everything they were teaching. I was self-taught thanks to NG, and presented my self-hosted site for the final assignment. Top grades there.


That probably wasn't the best use of school time looking back, but NG introduced me to so much so early on. Mainly visual arts and multimedia, which paved the way for what I work with today.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

Maltos - Who are you when you're away from NG?


Cyberdevil - I'm the same person as I am when I'm on it, though usually not by a computer, more so in the wild and free where I like to be and where I can breath.


My conflicting and interchanging hybrid high-tech/no-tech lifestyle usually culminates in a month long (used to be longer - alas, work) summer vacation each year where we farm crops for the winter, pick berries, swim, chop wood, and just basically get back to nature as much as possible. Also a major source of inspiration btw.


Otherwise I'd say I'm a searcher; looking for a place and purpose in life, chasing the skies when adjacent to night, trying new trails as life blazes me by, afraid I won't live before it's fabled we die. But just keep on going! And say with a smile: it's alright.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Maltos - As an active BBS user are there any users you like or dislike?


Cyberdevil - I can't think of anyone I really dislike right now.


I like anyone I can really talk to. About anything. Who entertains new ideas. Who makes conversation feel effortless. Or gives me a new perspective entirely. Or anyone who's witty or well-worded or hardworking or wise or a master of the arts or mysterious; disguised. But I like all y'all guys!!!


This place is just full on awesomeness.

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Maltos - What do you think about the forum MODs?


Cyberdevil - I think it's great we have 'em, and I respect that they take the time they do to try to keep the community together.


I particularly and spectacularly appreciate Seven, of the many names, who helps so much despite going through so much concurrent personal struggle.


I do feel like sometimes some mods seem to get a thorn in their side towards some specific user, and treat them unfairly, or let others treat said user unfairly without repercussion, but as I don't have the inside scoop always maybe there's more to it when such is the case sometimes.


For the most part they're great.

-------------------------------------------------------------------

Maltos - If you could say anything to @Tomfulp what would it be?


Cyberdevil - Hope you're well and keep up the good work!


If you have time for spontaneous site feedback reading: I'd love to see the user post history pages - among others - made a bit more readable. Feels like some of the text-heavy pages that were transitioned to the new layout with just a single column are a bit too wide to give you a good overview for reading, or page elements aren't spaced up ideally. Some of these pages just seem a bit cluttered and/or compact. The post history one's maybe the best example.


On a positive note I love that we finally have two-pass authentication and account backup features! Lotsa great updates lately.

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Maltos - What can we expect from you in the future?


Cyberdevil - More audio, more posts; more everything. :)


I'll be back from vacation soon and October's just around the corner so...

----------------------------------------------------------

Maltos - Who would you like to see interviewed next?


Cyberdevil - I'd also like to learn more about @ngman7 if he's available. Feels like he'd have a lot to say here.


If not maybe @S3C @VortexSupernova or @Ant0on - three awesome artists with various strains of creative mastery.

This is an Interview with @SleepyAss54


Maltos - Lets start back in 6/24/21 when you first join how did you find NG and what keeps you here 2.9K posts later.


SleepyAss54 - I found Newgrounds back when I started to watch some of the Artists like Oney and Egoraptor being let’s players

Then I Started to do more research into the creators history and started to enjoy the content of other creators

Then I found out it’s a good site for 18+ content which fed into my degeneracy

Then I decided to make an Account After I was a Drawing “art” on 4chan

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Maltos - Tell us about your username and why you chose it.


SleepyAss54 - I got my Username from A 4chan G/fur thread, which is just a Gay Furry Porn Thread, It originated from me not falling asleep and complaining about it. Then I got SleepyAss after I learned Sleepy can be an Insult for if somethings Ugly

The 54 comes from my Love of Godzilla and Tokusatsu in general. With Gojira being one of the first Films in the Medium and releasing in 1954, I would have gone for the Release date of Destroy All monsters which was in 1969 but I thought that would have been more tacky than just going with 54

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Maltos - You've submitted 8 pieces of artwork, what inspires or motivates your art work?


SleepyAss54 - Horni

Horni and my desire to make Cartoons and Comics. Before I was SleepyAss I was just going to post my ideas for TV shows n shit but That was going to be under a different moniker.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Maltos - You are a regular in the BBS how do you think you present yourself to your fellow Newgounders?


SleepyAss54 - Like an Degenerate Furfag Asshole who’s probably Retarded

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Maltos - Are there any users you like or dislike?


SleepyAss54 - @Mist and @ngman7

I haven’t met people that Retarded, even on 4chan

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Maltos - What do you think about the MODs in the BBS?


SleepyAss54 - The Jannies are aight. I don’t think any of them are bad guys. They’re doing their job.

Unlike the /b/ Jannies

This is an interview with VariantSeven

Enjoy


Maltos - Lets Start In 12/10/05 when you first found Newgrounds What drew you to the site and what keeps you here 19.2K posts later?


VariantSeven - I'd been coming to newgrounds since the late 90s, when I was in high school and had internet access. I found Pico's School and Nene's Interactive Suicide and Teletubby Funland and I became fascinated with flash animation. I didn't have a computer or internet access at home until 2005 and once I got it, the first thing I did was sign up for Newgrounds


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Maltos - You were a voice actor in https://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/784265 Fashion Police 2; Censor the planet. Tell us about that experience.


VariantSeven - I'm by no means a professional voice actress but I don't mind helping out anyone who is making Animation and needs a female voice actress and doesn't want to or can't pay for one. @DextaGethood is behind the Fashion Police movies and he's improved every single time he makes one. He's definitely someone to watch, he just keeps getting better and better.


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Maltos - You've been submitting art work to Newgrounds since 2009. What inspires your art work and what keeps you motivated?


VariantSeven - I make a ton of fine art in real life but I'm working hard to get better at digital art. I have a Wacom tablet from like 2009. I use art to de-stress and get my mind off things. It's just a hobby for me, not my career like so many other artists here, but I get so much inspiration from our community here. We have amazing artists.


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Maltos - Back in 2020 you provided Vocals on a submission for Author @Fro @hazencruz @Phobotech https://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/988493, Tell us about how you felt about being apart of it?


VariantSeven - The voice actors collab? Those are some talented people!!! I only had a small part but I was so happy to be included in their project. They're excellent voice actors.

I do enjoy voice acting and I'll probably do more of it, just as a hobby to help others, not paid, when I get a better mic set up.


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Maltos - You Created A Game SevenSeize's Adventure https://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/509023. In the game you stated you did not have the tools to create a proper game. Now that you've improved in your latest installment Kill Lola Bunny where you Directed have you grown in your gaming style? https://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/786432. I played i got 21 kills. Will there be more games?


VariantSeven - I had a lot of help on the adventure games maaany years ago from MagicalZorse. I did no programming on the Lola Bunny game, it was just my idea, but I looooveee the Lola Bunny game. It was executed perfectly by @Yomuchan and @Chdonga and it feels like 2007 Newgrounds.

VariantSeven - I stopped depositing points long ago, SHAME ON ME

I was surprised to see I had so many Blams. I typically protect anything that I feel the author did their best. I'm not a harsh judge.

Other than that, I don't worry much about my stats.

Like I've already had my posts wiped before. Lost like 7,000 of them.


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Maltos - What Effect Has Newgrounds had on you?


VariantSeven - I've made lifelong friends here. Many who check up on me more than real life friends and family. I'll never forget Newgrounds, no matter what happens to me.


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Maltos - What does your user name mean and why did you choose it?


VariantSeven - I change my name often. Right now, it's a nod to the series Loki.

My original name is SevenSeize


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Maltos - As a MOD how do you feel about the current regulars of the Newgrounds forums?


VariantSeven - We have a handful of people who are just a bit miserable and hate it here but won't leave, but the overwhelming majority of people on newgrounds are extremely good people. Very talented. Very creative. Smarter and hotter too.


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Maltos - Who are you when you're away from Newgrounds?


VariantSeven - I work in education and administration and somehow also ended up in PR and social media relations. I have kids. I lie and tell everyone I'm 29 but I'm actually 37.


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Maltos - On June 17th, 2020 You are quoted as stating : ..is the best damn show ever, fight me. https://blogimg.ngfiles.com/133000/iu_133522_1414829.jpg This is your chance stake your claim.


VariantSeven - I love Futurama and always will. One of my most favorite series. I will absolutely fight you.


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Maltos - If you could say anything to @TomFulp what would it be?


VariantSeven - @TomFulp refuses to take us to go get Mexican food and I'm pretty wound up about that. I've even offered to buy guac and queso for everyone.

But in truth, he's probably the most patient person I know, anywhere, online or offline. Like he puts up with soooooo much BS outta all of us. 

I'd have deleted all of us already.

Newgrounds is certainly quite the achievement that he raised from the ground up.


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Maltos - What can we expect from you in the future?


VariantSeven - I just don't want to die from Covid. My current goal is just survive.


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Maltos - Who would you like to see interviewed next? Requested by @DamnedByFate


VariantSeven - @DamnedByFate is great!

I know you interviewed him already.

Have you interviewed @Wegra ? 


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


This has been an interview with @VariantSeven

See you next time

Welcome, My Name Is Maltos Delight And This Is An Interview With @DamnedByFate


Maltos - Lets Start in 1/14 08 when you first signed up, how did you find NG and what keeps you here?


DamnedByFate - I saw the NG logo in a game on another site and decided to check it out. I came for the games and stayed for the community.


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Maltos - You co-created a game with @VideaVice , @Cyberdevil tell us about it


DamnedByFate - "Co-created" is a bit of a stretch. VideaVice made a public call for beta testers, and Cyberdevil and me responded, tested his game, and ended up credited.


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Maltos - What effect has the NG community had on you?


DamndByFate - NG feels like the only place where outcasts like me are welcome. Everyone here is as crazy as me. It's nice to have a refuge from the real world that only treats us with scorn.

I'm not exaggerating when I say the NG community keeps me alive.


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Maltos - You Are Very Active on The BBS Are There Any Users You Like Or Dislike?


DamnedByFate - Like: @TomFulp, by far the nicest guy on the entire internet. @VariantSeven, the mum of the BBS. @Fro, the dad of the BBS. @Cyberdevil, king of the Help forum. @FUNKbrs, provider of memes and Sauce. @Seth, shitpoaster extraordinaire. @Gremlin, interdimensional rodent. @RoboHex and @PussPeepers, who basically keep my "Musician ABC" thread alive. @Fim@Gario@test-object, and @TurkeyOnAStick for attempting to bring sanity to the Politics forum (@Feoric, where are you? I have Scotch). Oh, and @DrunkGecko.


Dislike: God-botherers, Trump apologists, discriminators of all stripes, kids who can't be arsed to understand NG, and People Who Type Like Fucking Retards. Oh, and @DrunkGecko.


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Maltos - What Does Your User Name Mean And Why Did You Choose it?


DamnedByFate - It was the result of an open call for suggestions (and predates the New Years Day song it might be a reference to). The guy who came up with it later had his account deleted and took over 1000 of my posts with him. Then he came back and did the exact same thing a second time, that fucking cunt.


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Maltos - What is your opinion about the forum mods?


DamnedByFate - They've grown soft.


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Maltos - Do you have a favorite MOD?


DamnedByFate - @VariantSeven, of course.


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Maltos - Would You Ever Want To Be A MOD?


DamnedByFate - I would accept if it were offered to me, but I won't actively seek it out.


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Maltos - Who In Your Real Life Would You Say Has Impacted You Most?


DamnedByFate - The first class I ever taught. I know how weird I am, and I was unsure whether they'd accept me, and by the end, I got no less than 3 cakes, and everyone was crying when I left.


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Maltos - Who are you when you're away from Newgrounds?


DamnedByFate - A school teacher, martial artist, and festival regular with a fondness for grilled beef and overdriven guitars.


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Maltos - Have you ever been in love or heartbroken?


DamnedByFate - No, I'm probably the least romantic guy you'll ever come across.


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Maltos - Do you have any secrets you would like to share?


DamnedByFate - No, I don't have the fabled naked pics of Tom. And I won't share the naked pics of myself because I don't want everyone gouging their eyes out.


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Maltos - If you could say anything to @TomFulp what would it be?


DamnedByFate - No matter what they tell you, NG is the best.


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Maltos - What can we expect from you in the future?


DamnedByFate - More shit posts.


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Maltos - Who would you want to see interviewed next?


DamnedByFate - @VariantSeven.

Maltos - Lets start when you joined in 7/4/10, how did you find NG and what keeps you here?

PussPeepers - Seven(insert current name)


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Maltos - You were recently recognized on the Tank Tribune, how does it feel?


PussPeepers - Fantastic! Though what was recognized was a pic of a handsome lad.


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

My Name Is Maltos Delight And This Is An Interview With Frobell


Maltos - Lets start with how you found NG when you joined in 3/12/21

Frobell - Well, I found NG long before I created an account. I was in middle school, hangin' with some pals when they started talking about some A-rated game on here. I simply had to check it out. I returned (and finally made an account) amidst the FNF craze.


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Maltos - What Keeps You Here?


Frobell - The cheesy and cliché thing to say would be "the people", and I am saying that. There's so many types of people to meet, and I just lovee sharing my work with all of them. (shameless promo: follow me @Purbell)


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Maltos - What effect has the NG community had on you?


Frobell - I've become more laid-back. Little things tend to not bother me anymore, as they don't really matter in the grand scheme of things. I don't know how this ties back to the NG community, but ever since I've been active on the forums, I've noticed this.


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Maltos - You Are Very Active on The BBS Are Their Any Users You Like Or Dislike?


Frobell - OoOoh, spicy question. I <3 most people, but @JimmyBiscuit and @DrunkGecko (the lovebirds), @Unequalled (or whatever his username is now), @MetalSonic655@YourGuyIsa@shintsukimi205, and @VampireKisses17 are some of my favorites. There is one user I dislike, but he isn't active on the BBS and I dare not speak his name. >:(


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Maltos - What Does Your User Name Mean And Why Did You Choose it?


Frobell - Ah yes. My username is usually @Purbell (it's @Frobell right now b/c funny thread idea). It is based on my original persona (seen below), who had purple hair that kinda resembled a bell. (old-ass art warning)


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Maltos - Would You Ever Want To Be A MOD?


Frobell - Nah, for one reason: I stink at being active consistently. Otherwise I think I'd do well, but I don't wanna be one.


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Maltos - Who In Your Real Life Would You Say Has Impacted You Most?


Frobell - My Nonna. She pushes me to be the best I can be, and is always very sweet and kind. I <3 her so much.


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Maltos - Who are you when you're away from Newgrounds?


Frobell - Goofy-ass closeted African-American/Puerto Rican boy. I do stuff sometimes. Play roblox with friends mostly lol.


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Maltos - Have you ever been in love?


Frobell - I thought I was, once. But I was a kid, and my grasp on the concept of love was week. Now, I think I'll live out the rest of my days single.


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Maltos - Do you have any secrets you would like to share?


Frobell - IRL I'm not actually a femboy. I live with my mum, and she would never tolerate my slightly gay personality. So until I move out, no thigh-high stockings for me ;-;


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Maltos - If you could say anything to @TomFulp what would it be?


Frobell - I would say:

Thanks! And also, plz add my stickonjo emote set to NG (It's in your AMA, I know I said it was a concept but please please please add it).


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Maltos - What can we expect from you in the future?


Frobell - Art! Bigger and better art! Follow me to keep up with my artistic antics! (@Purbell)

another shameless promo.


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Maltos - Who would you want to see interviewed next?


Frobell - Do @shintsukimi205, he's a pretty epic dude.


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Good Day!

My name is Maltos Delight And This Is An Interview With Pudgie248


Maltos - Lets start with how you found NG when you joined in 2/16/2021

What Keeps You Here?


Pudgie248 - The main thing that keeps me here is the people and the games I like joking around and having fun with people


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Maltos - What effect has the NG community had on you?


Pudgie248 - I think that would probably be my humor


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Maltos - You Are Very Active on The BBS Are Their Any Users You Like Or Dislike?


Pudgie248 - I don't really hate anyone on there tbh most of the people are pretty laid back at least in my experience


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Maltos - What Does Your User Name Mean And Why Did You Choose it?


Pudgie248 - Well I thought that pudgie sounded cute and then I put 2468 but took out the 6


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Maltos - If you were a forum MOD what kind of mod would you be?

Pudgie248 - If I was a mod I would probably be the one that's calm most of the time until someone says something outright offensive or just an overall dick.


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Maltos - Would You Ever Want To Be A MOD?


Pudgie248 - I wouldn't want to be a mod personally because it feels like too much of a responsibility for me to handle I can shut down too easily when overwhelmed.


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Maltos - Who In Your Real Life Would You Say Has Impacted You Most?


Pudgie248 - The person who has impacted me the most would probably be my mom or my friends but mostly my friends.


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Maltos - Who are you when you're away from Newgrounds?


Pudgie248 - I'm usually a little bit cranky if I'm getting stressed or I'm just sleeping but overall I don't think very much before I speak which sometimes can make me come off to people as a jerk.


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Maltos - Have you ever been in love?


Pudgie248 - Yeah, I used to like this boy back in 4th grade to 5th, and when I moved I realized that he was such a douche and I felt a lot better being away from him.


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Maltos - Do you have any secrets you would like to share?


Pudgie248 - One secret I haven't told anybody would probably be I took apart one of my family member's electronics because I was obsessed with circuits and motherboards and I have so many motherboards it's ridiculous. I have a bit of an addiction to it.


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Maltos - If you could say anything to @TomFulp what would it be?


Pudgie248 - I would probably say, "Hey you're that guy who made Newgrounds"


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Maltos - What can we expect from you in the future?


Pudgie248 - I think I will have a wife and maybe kids a nice house and a nice school they can go to. I've always wanted a family


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Maltos - Who would you want to see interviewed next?


Pudgie248 - Probably @Tritnew if they haven't been interviewed yet.
