The intro music plays as you return from the ad-break.

Impetus And we’re back! I hope the ad break was good. Of course, if you’re watching live, I hope the intermission snacks were great. We’re here now with our second guest tonight, another great guest, and it's great to have him on here. So, Dan, how are you doing today?
Dan I'm doing pretty good, thanks for asking!

Impetus Nice. So, you've been working hard on the PR team, even though you're not a staff member. How have you been handling that so far?
Dan When we first started I felt very confident in myself, prior to being selected to join the PR team I already had a few ideas I had been wanting to put in place on the YouTube channel. I haven't felt like it's been a hard task either and I'm having lots of fun doing it, and don't plan on stepping down any time soon! I will admit it was kind of confusing at first when we heard we wouldn't be staff, as I wasn't sure how that would've worked out, but it all worked out very well in the end and we all ended up doing what we were supposed to do succesfully!

Impetus The magic of usergroups, pretty much~ That's cool that it's been a smooth transition, and the steady youtube content seems to be going well so far?
Dan Definitely is, the schedule we put in place has been put to good use over the past few weeks, we haven't missed a single upload so far. People really seem to enjoy the uploads as well, so that says a lot on its own!

Impetus Is there anything about channel so far that you dislike, or want to change and improve on?
Dan There's nothing that I dislike at the moment, everything we have on it seems fine to me. I am thinking about improving the thumbnails at some point though, they're kind of messy because they differ too much from each other, I might just end up changing the entire layout for videos/thumbnails and so on to be a bit more modern while keeping that old-school feeling, so hey stay tuned for those changes!
Impetus That's fair~ Do you have any ideas to expand the youtube channel more then?
Dan There are a few things I had in mind for a while. One of them being live streaming where the community could get to know the PR team a little bit better by chatting with us, while we play any kind of game (Wouldn't even have to be a ROM hack). I like to see it as a nice break from the usual and just give people the chance to relax. Tutorials are also going to be a thing in the near future, seeing as it's a fundemental thing to have on the channel and a lot of people have requested video tutorials.
Impetus Live streaming sounds pretty fun actually, I could see some non-rom hack stuff with the community working out well! Perhaps something people can join in as well as chat for?
Dan There are a few games out there that have some sort of way to create custom game lobbies, or allow you to host your own dedicated game servers. I think it'd be a great idea to let people join in on the fun, we could even allow them to join in on voice chat on let's say Discord, with a set limit of people joining ofcourse.

Impetus Yeah I can see that being a lot of fun! While we're still on the topic of the channel, the last question about it... Obviously you're not the only one currently working on content for the channel, you work with Hobz too. He got MOTM pretty recently of course~ Anyway, as far as I know, neither of you had been that close until now, so how has it been working with him on the channel?
Dan Yeah, I've exchanged a few words with Hobz before all of this here and there and I've always found him to be a friendly dude. Working with him has been a pleasure so far and I find his videos hilarious, his editing always cracks me up. I've been kind of worried if our styles would clash too much, or if the editing would differ too much from both our videos, but I'd say we've both been doing a great job when it comes to that, great guy to work with.

Impetus That's always good to hear too~
Alright, a couple of more personal questions for you then! Your account suggests you're a new user, but you've had a pretty long history with SMWC. I'm not gonna dig up the past, but it's always intresting to hear from people what they think about the site and community, as well as how it's changed.
Dan Ah, yes, I have been a long time user, although I haven't spent a full 9 years on the site, I've known about the community ever since it went up, it may sound corny but I owe a lot of thanks to this site, as it has slowly (but surely) helped me grow up and mature over the past couple of years. What the most interesting change according to me has been in this community is that it all loosened up a bit, staff isn't as strict anymore, there's proper guidelines for the sections now, it's a lot easier to talk to people and the place generally became a lot friendlier. It's also very exciting to see there's still so much love and support for what we started doing years ago, and still do today.

Impetus Is there anything specific you'd like to talk about, or shout out to the members of SMWC?
Dan There's so many people I've befriended on the site, and I'd like to specifically thank those people for sticking around with me. The amount of support, love and friendship they've given me is beyond anything I could've ever imagined. I think everyone on the site is amazing, seeing all the incredible content they've been releasing in such a short time span is great. Keep it up, every single one of you!
Impetus Aww, that's super sweet~

Alright, time for the (semi) random questions.
What got you into making youtube videos, and is there anyone who inspired you to do so?
Dan Creating videos didn't actually start on YouTube for me, I started making Flash animations in 2006 and posted them on Newgrounds, and the person who inspired me to make them is Randy Solem, who created the popular series Rise of the Mushroom Kingdom in which Mario seeks revenge for Luigi's death. I wasn't very good at animating back in the day, but apart from that, I enjoyed doing it a lot. I think the first time I ever wanted to make videos on YouTube is when I saw one of ProtonJon's LP's in 2007, I was stunned by how great the video and audio quality was for its time and really wanted to look into it, so just like any other person in the middle of 2007 I started messing around with Windows Movie Maker. It's been a long journey; made tons of different kinds of videos (Let's Plays, commentaries, Garry's Mod stopmotion videos, live streams, etc). I've always had that creative spark in me and have developed on it ever since I first started doing it.
Impetus Oh god, please tell me it wasn't the wacky worlds lp =p
Dan Nope! It was actually his famous Kaizo LP! Darn Pokeys...

Impetus What's your RWBY OC? c8
Dan Haha, never actually thought about that one, but I'd gladly claim Ruby to be my OC. ;)
Impetus Darn it, that's cheating.

What's your favourite kind of music to listen to?
Dan Well I think the most obvious answer to that would be videogame music, but I don't really have a preference. I listen to pretty much anything except death metal, rap or dubstep. Exceptions can be made for rap and dubstep though, but I'm not to big on them. If I had to choose a specific band, Queen definitely gets number one in my list. I do really love 80s music by the way, I wish that kind of music would come back already.

Impetus What's one video game that's meaningful to you in some way?
Dan The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, first SNES game I've ever played and also the first Zelda game in the series that I've played. Ever since my mother introduced me to it I fell in love with it and still cherish it to this day. I think it's the best Zelda game out there and nothing has been able to top it for me.

Impetus What are your 3 favourite meals?
Dan Tacos, lasagne and french fries! I like my unhealthy foods!
Impetus Good choices tbh =3
Who do you think will win VLDCX?
Dan Eevee
Impetus Alright, lastly, what do you want your last words for the interview to be?
Dan Not that I can think of other than thanks for having me!
