Way back in the Middle Ages - right about 2006 A.D. - we had a thread called "Meet Your Mods". I figure it's time to resurrect the idea, particularly since we've got new moderators on the team and a lot of the info is now way out of date.

Cribbing from the last thread's intro a little here:

To make sure we don't appear as evil, hateful lurkers that only ban people and lock threads, we have created this wonderfully interesting topic for discussion. We'll tell a little bit about ourselves - real life and internet life, combined with whatever else seems interesting.

Mods will (re)introduce themselves one at a time, leaving some space between profiles and list of turn-ons so that people can ask questions. Everyone is encouraged to go ahead and ask us anything they want. If you'd like to leave a comment, that works too. Don't be shy. Pretty much anything that's within the rules is fair game.

I'll post my updated profile after class this afternoon. 8) That means somebody else can go first if I'm not back in time.

Ah, I remember doing this. We never did get Chris to go after everyone else last time. Maybe that will change this time around?

I guess I get to go first then since I opened my big mouth.

Name: Ash Abendroth
B-Day: October 10, 1986
Hometown: Bay City, Texas
Currently Living In: Houston, Texas
Education: BS in Criminal Justice from Texas A&M University at Corpus Christi, currently studying Law at the University of Houston Law Center (top tier law school, biznatch). Should get my Juris Doctor in 2013.
Car: The very same crappy maroon 1996 Dodge Stratus ES I had in the last thread in '06. It's missing a side mirror already, and I'll drive it until it falls apart like the Bluesmobile.

Things of Interest: I'm related to Major James Collinsworth, signer of the Texas declaration of independence, aide-de-camp to Sam Houston, secretary of state, senator, and first Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of the Republic of Texas. To follow that up in 1838 he ran for president of the republic and then got drunk and fell off a paddlewheeler and drowned in Galveston Bay. The Texan Aristocrats!

Oh, and there's that whole "running a successful Zeta Gundam RPG since 2006" thing too I guess.

Well, I know that I first visited the site when it was still the FAHQ. I signed up on the old message boards in May 2002, but had been using the main site for mecha profiles before that. So "a long time ago" is a good answer I guess.

I've heard Chris mention it on Gundamn! before, but what is FAHQ?

Fantasy and Animation Headquarters. The original name for MAHQ. A long, long time ago. I don't even remember which year they changed, or if it was before or after they inherited Burke Rukes' Big List o' Mecha, which used to be known as Mecha Domain.

The site switch from FAHQ to MAHQ in 2002. I don't remember when Burke Rukes's stuff was inherited, but it was definitely before the name change.

Back then the site covered both sci-fi and fantasy, but gradually shifted to focus on the former.

I guess this can be a general thing for all the mods and Chris.

What is the nuttiest thing you've ever had to get involved with as a mod?

I suppose I won't name names (even though these guys are banned and someone else will probably be happy to go into more detail) but a couple of users come to mind.

First was the guy that got so full of internet anger at the mod staff that he posted some kind of bizarre rage-against-the-MAN rant in severely broken German as he was blasted. That's what the "Die Anti-brutale Kraft" tag in some of our sigs is from.

The other guy kept creating new accounts in a sad attempt to bother Chris after he was repeatedly banned, and part of his macho threat was that he "had a part time job writing viruses for porn sites". Sadly my response is lost but I shot back a paragraph of tech gibberish worthy of a movie or TV script about IPs locked behind firewalls and downloading the internet.

Everybody please make sure to tell Fritz your best lawyer jokes I'm sure he's never heard 'em.

In addition to the anti-Brutale Kraft dude, there was also that guy, not longer after MAHQ left ezboard, who got into a huge fight with Chris demanding that MAHQ take down all of its lineart because it's copyrighted (or "copywrited", as he called it) material and Bandai should take legal action, etc. Elsewhere on the board he was defending his exclusive use of downloaded fansubs and refusal to buy official releases in spite of copyright/licensing laws for some reason. :roll:

There's also the KLAC, but I'm not trying to fill up Fritz's MYM week with talk of stuff that happened a million years ago.

* * *

Fritz, will you be posting cat pictures for every mod entry? I'd be very grateful :3

OMG!! They are so cute!!
I appreciate the effort the mods are taking to connect with the users. It is nice to "meet" you guys and your hard work is appreciated.
Thanks!

Just to give more exact dates, FAHQ inherited Burke Rukes's stuff and started hosting it in August 2001, while the name change to MAHQ occured on February 12th, 2002. I know those dates will make some of us feel a lot older. :P

Ah yes, I remember I had thrown in a couple of questions in the first Meet Your Mods thread.

Here's an important question that I've been meaning to ask: Coffee or Tea?

Both. But being a Texan that'll be iced tea.
