An Interview With DamnedByFate

Posted by Maltos - July 24th, 2021


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.

Concise but insightful! Learned more about @DamnedByFate here than I maybe have the past decade via the BBS. And thanks for the mention.

Great interview y'all.
