    Team Interrobang

    Bottom shelf is the only way to go!

    Joining

    I started playing TF2 more after the medic update hit. I found my way to Interro servers and kept coming back because of hlstats. I've always liked stats and enjoy seeing a record of my playtime. I split my time between two fort and payload and applied after about five days on the servers.

    Troll Status

    People regarding me as a forum troll has always been something of a mystery to me. I think I can trace the first instance of this phenomena to my infamous flowchart post. My initial goal with the flowchart was to determine what friendships existed on the team. I had observed that something negative would be said about a member and then three other people would jump out to defend them. I wanted to create the flowchart to figure out who would be offended when something negative was said. Unfortunately, many people took my flow chart idea the wrong way.

    Notable Comments from the Flowchart Thread

    I'M PROUD TO ANNOUNCE THE END OF THIS THREAD
    There is already a tool in place for this.

    1 - Go to the Roster 2 - Choose a friend from the list 3 - 'hover' over Connections 4 - 'click' on Request Connection
    If you friend accepts, your profile page will show all your friends. I have selected a few to test this and it shows up just fine. If someone doesn't want to be your friend, you can deny their request (ooooooo - drama!), if you get mad at your friend, you can delete the connection (ooooooo - drama!)
    NOW GO, CLICK, AND BE FRIENDS OFFICIALLY FOR ALL TO SEE.

    Evolution of the "Lock It Cuz You Don't Like It" Threads

    The flowchart thread and other threads around that time led to the creation of the first "Lock It Cuz You Don't Like It" Thread by Mommy. Threads were being locked left and right by admins who thought they were helping but were really only creating more problems.

    I continued to create these threads whenever it was relevant, in an effort to protest the random locking of threads. Locking threads always creates much more drama than it solves and should be avoided whenever possible.

    Trends In Trolling

    Many members write me off as a troll based on the input of other members. There are a few who have taken the time to get to know me and understand that while my opinions often differ from the majority, my main focus is not on trolling. My main focus is on positive policy, server, and team changes which make Interro a better place. I have often been criticized more for the delivery of my comments than the actual content they contain. That is to say that people often agree with what I say, just not how I say it.

    I did not join Interro or the forums in order to troll anyone. I simply say what I think in many situations and I am not afraid to step on peoples' toes. I think I have grown into the "forum troll" role in some peoples' minds so they always read what I have to say with a pre-conceived bias.

    Forum Troll vs. In-game OnaZ

    =Many members understand that I am a different person on the forums versus in game. I take administrating the servers very seriously and try to be fair and reasonable in game. I am not afraid to call people out if they have bad mics or if they talk too much. Unfortunately, I've not been playing as much TF2 lately and haven't gotten to know the newer members as well.

    Thoughts on Recruitment

    When I joined Interro, it was as simple as making a forum post, having a few people say "Yeah I've seen them in server," and an admin adding you to the team. This style of recruitment served Interro well for a long time and led to many of our core members. As the team continued to grow, my expectations for the recruitment system grew as well.
