Suggestions for New Interviews
Yep. As the topic says. I'm fast approaching my ORD date (which by the way is the most anticipated date of every Singapore male bar no one), so my work has scaled off somewhat. I now have time. So, suggestions on who you want interviewed.

You can post your suggestions here, or PM me if you want it to be a secret nomination.

So let's have some suggestions, people!

+1 for Spoon.

Also T-LoW's idea is quite good, I would like to read an interview to a top notch texturer-modeler, but I'm interested in what they can tell on how they do their awesome work, you know.. modeling/texturing tips and habits they've got on that area.

In that case I invite you and T-LoW to check out the one time I interviewed four of our more prominent modellers. Though its true they're only modellers, and didn't really stray into the texturing.

peterv, you have an alter ego?! Cool!

Also I would suggest VA or RgaNoris... perhaps an FSU based interview? I dunno.. just ideas.

Re: Suggestions for New Interviews
Agreed for Spoon, mjnmixael, or the FSU. I don't deserve an interview. :)

Re: Suggestions for New Interviews

Ah...guh....buh....FSU? What? :nervous: Cripes, now what?

All kidding aside, WoD has been hugely popular. While we probably wouldn't want to set a trend for "Do a kick ass release, get an interview" it is an impressive piece of work and I for one would love to hear some direct commentary from Spoon on how he handled it. (I also don't know when the last time was that we did a TBP interview, but Zathras is looking mighty damn fine too)

I also like the idea of hearing about some of the trials and tribulations from mjn.mixael. Here's somebody that pretty much literally popped out of nowhere and just opened up can after can of unadulterated Awesome on us.

As for the FSU....yikes. I'm sorry, but publicity at that level I just never really imagined. I'm pretty sure we can come up with some folks to be available for it (I hope), I just hope I don't end up curled up gibbering in a corner once it's all done. :-D

And lets not also forget, while they may be even more sparse and harder to get a hold of all in one group, I don't recall the last time the SCP had an interview either.

Re: Suggestions for New Interviews
Hmmm. I actually remember shooting Goober a PM about an interview round the release of 3.6.10. Nothing ever came of it though, because first we cleared an ST:R interview. Then Goober said he was busy.

... And then I forgot, and happily went on with an interview for the Deep Fringe Array. Plus many others.

And Hades. I don't see any interviews from you. -glares-

Re: Suggestions for New Interviews
I'm just an average joe around here, but for what it's worth I put in my vote for mjn.mixael. With his attention to detail and the enormous time and effort he's put into revamping ALL of the FS1 and FS2 anis, as well as his other projects such as the cutscenes, I believe he deserves an interview.
[16:57] <CommanderDJ> What prompted the decision to split WiH into acts?
[16:58] <battuta> it was long, we wanted to release something
[16:58] <battuta> it felt good to have a target to hit
[17:00] <RangerKarl> not sure if talking about strike mission, or jerking off
[17:00] <CommanderDJ> WUT
[17:00] <CommanderDJ> hahahahaha
[17:00] <battuta> hahahaha
[17:00] <RangerKarl> same thing really, if you think about it

So, we have the SCP, FSU, mjn.mixael, and spoon. Right. I'll go about seeing what to do.

Re: Suggestions for New Interviews
I'm just sort of curious about it all, but maybe sometime you should get around to interviewing IceFire, Goober, and some of the other early-history-of-the-site guys about the early days of HLP before everyone forgets.

I suggest V and Interplay staff... the later probably being the more difficult.
