It airs at 3AM because they won't show my horrible talk show anywhen else =p


Impetus Alright, so. Erik557 . Better known as Dropbox, which is catchier than Erik557 really. It's good to have you on this fictional, text based talk show. How have you been doing today?
Erik557 I've been doing fine. Just chillin and... doing nothing really lol
Impetus That sounds pretty good, tbh. So I guess you're not *section moderating* then~

Impetus You've only been a section mod for a month, so, is the menial chore of going through the huge number of submissions the site gets and checking them everything you expected?
Erik557 To be fair I expected it to be more stressing, and even if I currently only have a month on the team, I've felt it's not really hard or anything. So I guess it's more cool than I expected \_(ツ)_/
Impetus That's fair. You've done a huge amount of moderation already in just one month, more than most other people, so it's interesting to hear that you haven't found it difficult while totally booking it in terms of numbers.
Impetus Do you have a secret to that then? Is it pure skill? Unlimited free time? Claiming all of the really easy to moderate submissions?
Erik557 I feel it's skill more than all. I try to claim submissions no matter how hard to moderate they could be. And it's not like I dispose of a lot of free time (although I did have much last month)
Impetus Do you think managing Morton's Empire has given you any skills that transferred over, or are those two things too different?
Erik557 Well, in a way, it contributed in making me acquire some knowledge such as asm (which I wouldn't have bothered to learn had it been because of it), and values such as responsibility.
Impetus Pff, well, knowing ASM is basically the first part of being an ASM moderator, so I guess the collab had a pretty big influence~

Impetus That's one collab, of course, and not #collab presented by #collab. I've been informed I'm a co-founder for it, but I know nothing about it and not just for the purposes of this interview. So, what can you tell me about it so far?
Erik557 Well I think you planned it to be a collab with focus in patches such as Yoshi's flutterjump and leod's Sprites on Platforms. It was a closed project but it was ded so I decided to make it an open collaboration hack. People seemed to receive it better than Morton's Empire looks like.
Erik557 btw fuk u prizm collab is alive
Impetus Sounds pretty accurate, I think some of that is coming back to me. Compared to Morton's Empire, what would you say the main differences are?
Erik557 Morton's Empire is definitely more restrictive with gimmicks, there were some things that weren't used such as Yoshi. I feel collab gives more creative freedom to the designers, in part due to the game-enhancing patches that are inserted. By the other side, Morton's Empire is more focused on telling a story, while #collab doesn't have one (yet? idk).
Impetus It's still early days. M-maybe I can write a story, and then I'll actually have done something =p. I suppose it's actually one of the first open SMW collab hacks to deviate a long way from the base SMW mechanics, so it should be pretty cool to see a collab with a fresh spin on the game.
Impetus Anything else you want to mention about #collab?
Erik557 yeah y'all better contribute or ill ban you
Erik557 >_> <_<
Erik557 *hides*
Impetus It's great to see you using your staff powers well already~

Impetus So, asides from the things you're already well known for, do you have any side projects you're working on?
Erik557 Well I started a hack but progress on it is very slow. But I swear it'll be finished someday!!!!
Erik557 Other than that, not really. I do help in few team hacks tho.
Impetus Fair~ Your VLDC level is spooky and has nice palettes too. While using ghost house graphics aren't uncommon in VLDC, I'm a fan of the use of the rocky background with the wood platform tiles.
Impetus Do you have any predictions for VLDC this year?
Erik557 prizm is gonna lose, I'm gonna lose, and morsel is getting to the best world
Erik557 other than that no, we'll see as it progresses...
Impetus Prizm is gonna be super disappointed when he hears that =c
Impetus But VLDC doesn't have losers, right? Only people who don't score in the top 10. Unless you really think your level will end up in worst world =p
Erik557 True.

Impetus Anything else you want to talk about for today? Are you interested in a random question round, or do you think those random questions are merely trivial time wasters in the serious business of reality?
Erik557 random questions sound cool
Impetus Favorite colour?
Erik557 My name color is pretty cool tbh. Other than that, some shades of red
Impetus If you could only eat one meal for the rest of your life, what would it be? I've banned pizza in advance, that's the easy way out of this question~
Erik557 i wasn't gonna answer pizza i swear
Erik557 now uh
Erik557 *dies of starvation while thinking*
Impetus What book would you recommend to other users to read?
Erik557 i don't read, im lazy
Impetus B-but, Lazy is a hack mod.
Impetus What's your favorite genera of video game?
Erik557 I like platformers and some simulation games. shooters too I guess, tho I don't really play them a lot
Erik557 to be fair, I'm not really a gamer, lol
Impetus What's your alltime favorite meme?
Impetus Or do you not usually partake in them?
Erik557 all memes are terrible (realtalk i don't have any)
Impetus Who's the best VLDCX judge?
Erik557 the one that scores me the most
Impetus What's your biggest pet peeve?
Erik557 Definitely thinking of pet peeves
Impetus What do you want your last words in this interview to be?
Erik557 "does someone read these fully lol"

Impetus Nice! Well that's all for tonight, the readers at their computers have all been a great audience, and thanks to you for coming on the show tonight!
Erik557 👏


Thanks as always for tuning into the 3AM show, and I hope all of you at home, work, or wherever you are right now, have had a good evening. This has been Impetus, your most gracious host for tonight. And lastly, goodnight everybody.
Congrats Erik, well deserved (;

Yeah, why don't he cash you outside, how about that?


Erik actually moderated a shitload compared to literally everyone else by the way, which says a lot considering he does ASM and hacks both. Nice job guy!!

you probably wont need to make a mental note to score Prizm's level a 0 LOL
but we're getting off topic
≈.≈
I really admire Erik557. He's pretty talented, doesn't get afraid of challenges and his adaptation to the Staff Team was incredible. He acts like if he was staff for a long time already. Sometimes he's discrete at the discussions, but really efficient. He is taking care of both ASM and hacks section, which is a thing that the administrators don't usually grant at these days for stalking risks, but he's doing pretty good so far doing both.

Congratulations for your staff spotlight. Keep it with your excellent job.

Are you saying our poor fellow Erik577 isn't gonna be scored high by the other judges, that's not very nice.

maybe
"Okay we've all reviewed the level as requested and we all agree it deserves 100/100"

"Also we all agree with Noivern that Prizm's level is not deserving of it's high placement and we're going to remove it from best world."
