Because I lost the feel for it and didn't have any ideas on how to continue. That I had to abandon NaNo in between because of stress didn't help there. I might go back to it one day, but currently I'm more interested in finishing up my Librarian-stories.

This is the reason I want to continue it one day. Franzi needs more love :3

How long have you worn glasses?
Since I have been about three years old I think. They are part of my character by now and not wearing them anymore or switching to contacts is a thought that would never cross my mind. On that note, I'm getting new glasses tomorrow or on Friday, yay~
 
Quote
What is the last good book you've read?
The most recent one would be Walter Moers' "Der Schrecksenmeister", which I finished just a few days ago before starting with Pratchett's "Unseen Academicals".

Quote
What is an ideal day like for you?
Let's  see, a perfect day would probably go something like this: Wake up with sunrise, read the newspaper while having a good breakfast, talk with online-friends and probably play some games or read a book, later go out to meet with friends for a nice afternoon/evening. In the past I preferred to be on my own, but over the years I've become very social. A day I spend with friends all around is the best kind of day~

I'm scared.

Would you grant writers of a successful text adventure (one that reaches completion at least) the Wordsmith tag?

I believe I did! Your talking about Franzi intrigued me. Or am I just being delusional? ???

Do you own any pets?

What are your preferred genres when it comes to books? How about movies? Anime and manga?

About that much:


Would you grant writers of a successful text adventure (one that reaches completion at least) the Wordsmith tag?
Definitely. The amount of prose the GM of a complete Text Adventure produces is easily equal to many other stories. TAs are fiction that lives and evolves from continuous reader input, so simply another genre of writing. There is no reason why that shouldn't deserve the Wordsmith tag the same way good fiction in PSL does.

I believe I did! Your talking about Franzi intrigued me. Or am I just being delusional? ???
Ah, that sounds likely. I did talk about four-armed patched-together loli-abomination a lot after all :3

Quote
Do you own any pets?
No, because I don't think I would be able to give them the attention they need. We've had pets in the past (we meaning my family), a guinea pig, a rabbit, mice, a rat, and budgerigars. Not all together of course, one after another over the course of many years.

Quote
What are your preferred genres when it comes to books?
As mentioned before, I really like humorous/satirical fantasy writing, and that is about the majority of the stuff I have.

Quote
How about movies?
With movies, in the past my main interest was comedies and science fiction. Nowadays I don't watch many movies anymore, and the ones I do watch aren't chosen by genre. In regards to movies I have seen in cinema I think most of them were fantasy movies. But yeah, not a big movie-watcher in the first place.

Quote
Anime and manga?
Probably close to everything. I have a dedicated bookshelf for my manga-collection, and it's stuff from almost every genre. I prefer shonen-style, but not necessarily fighting-manga, rather stuff like Bakuman or Death Note. Two of favourites are Seinen I think, which would be "She - The ultimate weapon" and "Gunslinger Girl". Another favourite is Genshiken, for which I have no idea what genre it falls into.
I've read the occassional shoujo as well when I worked my way through our library's manga section, though I can't think of any series that left a lasting impression on me.

For anime it's mostly gotta either have lots of nice action, or lots of funny stuff. Recently I finished Star Driver and started Gurren Lagann. I also started on Nichijou. Or it has to be really intriguing, like Madoka.
But there's again no clear system to what I will watch and what not. The actual plot, characters and style are much more important to me than the genre it's assigned to. Going by genre has never been something that worked properly for me, I can find things I like and hate within the same genre.

I'm surprised you remember this.
One thing you should know is that all Germans I've met said the same thing about being more cheerful than the other Germans, despite being bureaucratic like every German, so :V

I have a tendency to regularly play around with it, so having a real sword (unless it's blunt of course) would bear the risk of severed body parts, all of which I still need :V

You could crop it so more of the pic is visible in the avatar. I'd crop the umbrella if anything. But I don't think it's looking too bad as it's now either.

It got created just about a little while ago and yes, it's basically the RA+ for writers. There's also Atelier Idol now, which is for those artists that mostly do music.

Quote

I have the kind of memory where I remember a lot of small random things like that. Can come in handy at times, but it also means I often forget blatantly obvious big stuff when asked directly.
(For example Dorian pointed out I missed some very obvious stuff when talking about the German classics before:
<Dorian> You disappointed me Sakana, Schillers fame is based on writings like ?Die Glocke? and ?Die B?rgschaft?, and you didn't even mentioned Heinrich Heine.)

Quote

Well damn :V
Okay, seeing as none of the people I know seem to fit the "stereotypical German" image, I have to wonder how much it applies anymore anyway. Seems to me it's mostly the older generations now, all those grumpy old people who claim everything was better back in the day :V

What is a miserable pile of secrets?
It's a common mistake to let secrets pile up miserably. That will cause the pile to collapse at some point, spilling the secrets everywhere. The trick is to arrange them neatly so the pile is stable. That way your own personal secret construction will be durable and capable of supporting the life you build on it.

Both are the same for me, obviously. Therefore this is not a choice  :]

Can't remember what you haven't experienced yet  :P

The job of the Librarians is only the list, yes. Well, and judging the WWCs I suppose. For me being Acolyte adds a little extra work, but it's not that much.
Now if we were to divide work evenly and keep the list up to date as soon as possible all the time, the daily workload would be rather small, seeing as we only get new fics in PSL every other day (mind you, that's pretty good. Having new stories added almost daily is a good score). The problem is that each of us Librarians has their own stuff to deal with and the work piles up. Take a look at the listing right now. When it's like that we'll just have to divide it and pull a big summarizing-session soon to get it back up to date. But oh well, that's the job.
But overall, it's not a too hard work, no.

How do you feel about Germany being the hub of the EU? For that matter, how do you feel about the EU? What advice would you give any new countries hoping to join?

As one who has been following the Ask a Staffer threads religiously, how in the hell did I miss TSO's thread and the first page of yours?! :ohdear:

Which MotK member are you most likely to kidnap, for whatever reason?
Admit it, you are expecting me to answer "Gappy" now :V
Naturally.

How awesome am I for having come up with "Wordsmith" for that tag? :cool:
   - Can I get Wordsmith and/or IP and/or Spechul Membah for having done so? :V

Will Wordsmith be joinable like Resident Artist++, or will it only be given to the ELITE?

I've asked you before if you have seen any examples of effective illustration of danmaku in the library before, however you said you hadn't.
Now that it's your turn for Ask a Staffer, I demand you attempt it yourself!
