Moderator of the Month
Each month, the DDR Freak population decides on a moderator of the month by a poll. The moderator selected is an example of the best our forums offer and go above and beyond the call of duty.
November's Mod of the Month:
Name: Jason 'VxJasonxV' Salaz
Location: Mesa, AZ
Kids: I'm too young for those things.
Been playing DDR since: July 2002
Freestyler, Perfect Attacker or just for fun: Great Attacker, No seriously, just for fun.
What drew you to DDR in the first place?: The music, the challenge, and an alternative to Bust-A-Groove.
What is your favorite DDR song?: It's very hard for me to pick 'just one thing' because there's so much to choose from, and one thing doesn't take priority. At the moment, Bizarre Love Triangle comes to mind because they made that song VERY catchy. Maximizer holds a special place in my heart though.
What is your favorite bemani song?: Again, it's very hard to choose. I do believe that Giudecca ranks as the song I would listen to in any mood I'm in. Happy Hopper bounces around (hur hur) from time to time though .
What Bemani do you play outside of DDR?: Beatmania IIDX, Beatmania III, Pop'N Music, Dance Maniax Second Mix, Pump It Up Exceed (it's a dancing game, not bemani, big deal), Guitar Freaks, Drum Mania, and I have been known to give Para Para Paradise a whirl. I <3 this arcade.
Favorite bemani game: I think I prefer Pop'N Music the most, because it can make you move around or at least pull a little groove, and the game itself is simplistic and presents a wonderful challenge.
What is your favorite aspect about DDR?: The music, hands down. The music is the single most important contributor to the replay value of the game (for me at least).
How long have you been coming to DDR Freak: My profile says Feb 8, 2002, but I think I lurked for a week (or more maybe) before that.
How long have you been a moderator?: July 2003. 2 weeks before my 18th birthday. (What a wonderful birthday present .)
What helps you keep your sanity while moderating the site?: Not focusing on the flames and whines of users. The occasional banning doesn't hurt. (I kid, I kid.)
What do you enjoy doing outside of DDR?: Computer work. I work for a web hosting company and I am very into configuring computers, devices, and other hardware for optimal security, flexibility, and speed.
What is the air speed velocity of an unladen swallow?: African or European?
Why are you so damn sexy?: Because my girlfriend says so.
What's the craziest thing you've ever done?: This one time at computer camp... You know, I may want to omit that. This is an all ages forum...
Boxers or briefs?: NEITHER, HAHAHAHA (what was that about an all ages forum again? Oh well )
Favorite food?: LASAGNA, or any italian/pasta for that matter.
Favorite song?: Somnambulist holds a special place in my heart. But there's a lot of damn good Dance/House/Trance/Techno songs to choose from. Depends on the mood.
Favorite movie?: Fahrenheit 9/11 (What? It was entertaining!)
Favorite book?: Life, for dummies.
Who should win the 2004 U.S. Presidential Election?: NADER, GO THIRD PARTY!!!!!
Who do you admire?: All of my peers and most of my co-workers, each in their own individual way.
Give me a quote: "..." - Mario from Mario RPG, Gordon Freeman from Half-Life, and numerous other Video Game Heroes.
Any other thoughts?:<3 the voters. THEY MADE THIS ELECTION DAY COUNT.
October's Mod of the Month: PMG
September's Mod of the Month: Cutriss
