  1. Rando Freaky Bear

    I am putting this for two reasons:

    2 I want to get an idea of the kinds of people we are dealing with here at the CPA. Think of it as a domographical survay, but not.

  2. DÛke Memento Mori

    1) When did you first come to the CPA?
    August. Although, my fragile mind could be wrong.

    2) What brought you here?
    I was quitting Magic, and I announced it at MTGnews. Though, I don't know if God wanted me to stay with Magic, or it is just an accident, Purple Jester, out of nowhere, calmed me down. She was really nice about it; it was the first time we had ever met, and I think she was fairly new to MTGnews. She’s like a firefly hovering above me, glowing forever, but not for me…<sigh> She’s a firefly…

    Another reason is a big fight I had with Sagridder back there, at MTGnews. It is a long story, so I'm not going to talk about it. Unlike many other fights that end is rivalry, Sageridder and me became the best friends any people could ever see. He forgot about the past, and so did I…that is one thing not many people like to do.

    Of course, I thank YellowJacket for giving out the address. Thank you, Yellow guy.
    After seeing that Zadok and Istanbul were here, it was even more exciting, because I’ve known them from past encounters…thanks again YellowJacket, you’re a savior.

    3) What do you think of the changes that may have occurred since you first joined?
    One thing I would like to discuss: if this CPA is OURS, then we should have been able to *at least* vote upon changing the way it looks. I like the new look, but come on, would there be a CPA without us? HELL no! Why weren't WE, the heart of the CPA, consulted about the change? I HAVE NO idea. It is sad really, because all along, I thought the CPA belonged to everyone…

    4) Do you think that the CPA is holding up to the mission statement made at its inception? (If you read it, that is).
    I do not like to talk this over again. The answer is YES and NO. You get it, you're smart, and if you don't, than you're probably new.

    5) If you could change one thing about this site, what would it be?
    Ban Istanbul, and prevent people from signing over and over and over, and OVER again as different name handles. That’s not good for the CPA, it’s probably the only zero grade I’d give it.

    6) How long have you played Magic?
    Since mid-Tempest days. I remember those days like they were just now.

    7) What made you first try the game?
    I saw a Portal commercial, I loved the art, and I was inspired by some of the cards they showed during that commercial. I went to Target, bought a box of Portal, and played it all day long with my brother, which was the only one interested at the time. We had long fun with it, until Tim, Nick, and James, at school, showed me some of THIER cards. I was amused...I mean, what the heck is an Artifact? Enchantment? Creature type? What the F**k is goin’ on man! They taught me the *real* game, and so, that is how I got into Magic...the real Magic that is.

    8) Are you as happy with the Magic community as a whole now as when you joined?
    I am happier actually. At the beginning, it was just people from real life that I talked to about Magic. Now, I have the net, and you people that rock…it would be perfect if it wasn’t for the “little” thing, but that’s not the issue.

    9) If you could change one thing about the game of Magic, what would you change?
    Slow down the set release. I mean, I'm only 17 (almost 18), and the majority is between 13-20. We have a life, and we spend our money on other things, other than Magic...We can't keep up with all those sets, and I'm NOT even a collector...I feel sorry for those who collect the cards, they must go into a lot of trouble in order to collect every card. I even feel sadder about those who collect FOILS! I prey you guys and girl’s good luck on your eternal journey of perfection.

    10) If you could be an animal, what would you be?
    That's and easy one. I love leopards. I just love them. I want to be a leopard. I love leopards. I just do.

    11) What do you think of all those "New World Order" theories? Ate up, or what?
    I have no idea what you're talking about.

    12) Is Walt Disney really cryogenically frozen inside Sleeping Beauty's Palace in Disney World?
    Maybe, but yet again...I don't know, the last time I heard of this, they told me he was dehydrating in The Lion King's cave, but who knows...He as well be going to the Road to Alderado...I have no clue...

    13) Did you know that Al Capone died alone and insane from syphilis while in prison?
    Who's Al Capone?

    14) What is the stupidest thing you have ever seen anyone do?
    A guy, kissing his ex-girl right in front of his NEW girlfriend. What the hell was he thinking? EVEN I wouldn’t' do that...

    15) What is the stupidest thing you have ever done?
    In the CPA: Try to befriend with Istanbul.
    In real life: Too many to count.

    16) Have you ever awoke, hung over and groggy in some one else's car and don't know haw you got there?
    Actually, yes. It wasn't too long ago either, about a week or so. I was out to dinner with my cousins, we had a blast of "that" sort, and then I was so "of that sort", I think I fainted...and from there, I woke up in the car, not knowing what the hell happened, and I also think I got partial amnesia from "that thing". I have no idea to this day what the heck happened, where we went after I "fainted"...I have no clue, and nobody would tell me...

    17) Have you ever written a story or poem or what ever, and then find out that someone else has gotten a hold of it and is reading it to everyone and making fun of you in horrid and emotionally scarring ways that you will never get over and will hamper your social skills for years to come?
    Yes, I am writing a book called "Vagabond"; it is a book of poetry. One poem in there, called "Vagabond", I offered a girl to read, she read it, she liked it, and BEHIND MY BACK, she copied it, read it to her friends, and said it was hers. I know that's NOT what you asked Rando, but come on, that has got to be cruel...it made me so angry, I was about to freakin' slam that b***h right in the a** but she was a girl...I don't hit girls, although, some deserve it so much...

    18) Have you ever seen yourself on video dancing and realized how idiotic you look?
    No, but I've seen myself on a video trying to play soccer, and I looked so freakin' stupid, I didn't even believe it was me...You know what I did with that tape? I sneaked to my parents’ room when they were out, got it, and burned it in the fireplace. It was warm, and I was so happy that thing was gone...THANK GOD! This was about 3 years ago, and the funny part is that my parents have not discovered the missing tape yet...OF COURSE they didn't! They have so many tapes of <cough>"it's an adult thing"<cough>...They probably don't even remember it...

    19) If you were the last man/woman on the planet, and your only other source of companionship was a life-sized cardboard cut out of Strom Thurman, would you go insane?
    No. As long as I could get all the music CDs in the world, all the food, and all those pyramids, and the Taj Mahal...I wont go insane...Sh*t, I even might try new things with--never mind...

    20) Why?
    Is this referring to the question above? Well, I didn't like that question, so I'll just assume you're asking a random "why?”… so I'll answer it with a random thought:
    JUST BECAUSE, FOO'!

    21) Why not?
    Again? Because it's not...whatever we're talking about...

    22) If so, how?
    By [edited for strong sexual content] and so on...get it?

    23) And then what?
    You really want to know don't you? Fine, here's the secret, you [edited for all kinds of highly offensive content], you get it now? I mean…I gave it all I got man, GOD, Rando!

    24) If a train left New York going West at 76 MPH and another train left Los Angeles going East at 64 MPH, both at the same time, who would take the time to calculate when they would meet each other, and who cares? Is there really that many opportunities in life to need such skills? I mean, who cares? God, I hate school. I'm never going back. YOU HEAR ME GOD? NEVER!
    Who doesn’t?

    25) Describe, in 5 words or less, why the CPA is the best Magic site around, and/or, why I should be allowed to rule it with an iron fist and absolute authority over all that come here, banning users and deleting posts with cruel abandon and irreverent reasons.
    What if the CPA is NOT the best? Just a thought...Anyway, if I have to describe it with 5 words, they would be: Insane, Stupid, Fun, Unique, [5th word was edited for unknown reasons]

    Damn Rando...THAT WAS LONG!
    Back to my book…

  6. Landkiller CPA Menace

    1) When did you first come to the CPA?
    October, I think

    2) What brought you here?
    something Zadok wrote on Starcity

    3) What do you think of the changes that may have occured since you first joined?
    No, changes since I joined up, it's not been that long

    4) Do you think that the CPA is holding up to the mission statement made at it's inception? (if you read it, that is)
    uhh...no. I mean, being activist. Definetely(sp?) not.

    5) If you could change one thing about this site, what would it be?
    It would award prizes to people each day. Like the lottery.

    6) How long have you played Magic?
    Since 1994. Wow. And that means about 1/3 of my life. ouch.

    7) What made you first try the game?
    Saw some other people playing, and I had nothing better to do.

    8) Are you as happy with the Magic community as a whole now as when you joined?
    No. Now, I hardly ever play compared to when I first joined, and getting that daily gaming action on.

    9) If you could change one thing about the game of Magic, what would you change?
    First of all, we'd use third edition rules, and colorless mana would count as mana of any color, and I'd ban all cards that I didn't own...oops, you say only ONE thing. Okay. How about...I'd reprint Dark Ritual. And unban the silly card.

    10) If you could be an animal, what would you be?
    I'm not an animal fan. I suppose a falcon, since it is the fastest animal. Humans are the best though.

    11) What do you think of all those "New World Order" theories? Ate up, or what?
    Straight up, dog. That $hit be wack.

    12) Is Walt Disney really cryogenicaly frozen inside Sleeping Beauty's Palace in Disney World?
    Sure he is, you go right ahead and believe that. Maybe there's a hotline for people like you.

    Yes. I have done extensive research on organized crime.

    14) What is the stupidest thing you have ever seen anyone do?
    Oh. Wow. This question needs a limit. How about "What is the stupidest thing you have ever seen anyone do last weekend?" In that case, I would say dress up like Captain America and go to a gas station at 4 am. No joke. I was there.

    15) What is the stupidest thing you have ever done?
    <Landkiller pleads the 5th amendment.>

    16) Have you ever awoke, hung over and groggy in some one else's car and don't know haw you got there?
    No. Does waking up outside in a pile of vomit count?

    17) Have you ever written a story or poem or what ever, and then find out that someone else has gotten ahold of it and is reading it to everyone and making fun of you in horrid and emotionaly scarring ways that you will never get over and will hamper your social skills for years to come?
    No. I've never let anyone get ahold of it.

    18) Have you ever seen yourself on video dancing and realized how idiotic you look?
    No. I've looked in a mirror, and I've also been told on several occasions, but no one can jam like me;)

    19) If you were the last man/woman on the planet, and your only other source of companionship was a life-sized card-board cut out of Strom Thurman, would you go insane?
    Sure. Why not?

    20) Why?
    Because.

    21) Why not?
    Well, is it worth it?

    22) If so, how?
    Hmm...

    23) And then what?
    Aaaaghh...I will kill you!!!!

    24) If a train left New York going West at 76 MPH and another trane left Los Angelas going East at 64 MPH, both at the same time, who would take the time to calculate when they would meet each other, and who cares? Is there really that many oppertunities in life to need such skills? I mean, who cares? God, I hate school. I'm never going back. YOU HEAR ME GOD? NEVER!
    Awwww, Yeah!!! Burn those schools down!!

    25) Describe, in 5 words or less, why the CPA is the best Magic site around, and/or, why I should be allowed to rule it with an iron fist and absolute athority over all that come here, banning users and deleting posts with cruel abandon and irreverent reasons.
    Because "No one can stop you!"
  7. Istanbul Sucker MCs call me sire.

    1. When did you first come to the CPA?

    June or July of 2000, I forget exactly.

    -

    2. What brought you here?

    My old haunt, magiccampus.com, had just closed down. I looked at Zadok's old sig on mtgnews.com (which STILL locks up my browser), and it brought me here. The rest is histoire.

    -

    3. What do you think of the changes that may have occured since you first joined?

    Well, I don't like the colors. The rest is kewl.

    -

    4. Do you think that the CPA is holding up to the mission statement made at its inception?

    Dunno. Never read it.

    -

    5. If you could change one thing about this site, what would it be?

    Bring back the old colors! Glaring white and blue hurt my eyes.

    -

    6. How long have you played Magic?

    Close to seven years; I missed Arabian Nights by a week.

    -

    7. What made you first try the game?

    The curiousity of myself and a friend over this weird new game.

    -

    8. Are you as happy with the Magic community as a whole now as when you joined?

    GOD, no. Most of the Magic community these days is composed of snide, nasty, hateful people who care nothing for originality or fair play. To most of the people I see, winning isn't just the most important thing, it's the ONLY thing. Bleah.

    -

    9. If you could change one thing about the game of Magic, what would you change?

    The secondary market. I think it would be very cool if the price on every single card suddenly lost a 0. Black Lotus would top out at $50, and Rishadan Ports would cost a buck. It would be less of a money game.

    -

    10. If you could be an animal, what would you be?

    A fox. Cunning, clever, lives by its wits. Faces down all manner of animals bigger and stronger than itself, sometimes in packs, simply by outwitting them. I can respect that.

    -

    11. What do you think of all those "New World Order" theories? Ate up, or what?

    You are not cleared for that information, citizen.

    -

    12. Is Walt Disney really cryogenically frozen inside Sleeping Beauty's Palace in Disney World?

    He was, until I took a baseball bat to that popsicle's head and went crazy-ape on his old @ss!

    -

    13. Did you know that Al Capone died alone and insane from syphillis while in prison?

    No, but considering how many people he killed, he deserved it.

    -

    14. What is the stupidest thing you have ever seen anyone do?

    Have a child that she can't take care of...then have another that she STILL can't take care of...then have another, and give it up for adoption...then have another, and give IT up for adoption...and still refuse to have her tubes tied.

    -

    15. What is the stupidest thing you have ever done?

    Traded a Beta Shivan Dragon for some Antiquities commons when Antiquities had just come out. Hey, it must be a fake...Shivan Dragons don't have black borders! (sigh) Yes, I was a newbie, but it haunts me to this day.

    -

    16. Have you ever awoke, hung over and groggy in someone else's car, and not known how you got there?

    Nope. I've never awoken hung over. I don't drink.

    -

    17. Have you ever written a story or poem or whatever, then found out that someone else has gotten hold of it and is reading it to everyone and making fun of you in horrid and emotionally scarring ways that you will never get over and will hamper your social skills for years to come?

    Ohhhhh-kay. No, but I'm guessing that wasn't really a *question*, per se...

    -

    18. Have you ever seen yourself on video dancing and realized how idiotic you look?

    No, I already know that I dance like an epileptic hippopotamus on crack, so I don't allow myself to be videotaped.

    -

    19. If you were the last man/woman on the planet, and your only other source of companionship was a life-size cardboard cutout of Strom Thurman, would you go insane?

    *hides his Strom Thurman cutout* Noooooo...I think I could handle it.

    -

    20. Why?

    Hell, I spend most of my free time alone anyway. I'd just burn the cutout for heat, then proceed to have fun with a city that was all my own.

    -

    21. Why not?

    I just *told* you.

    -

    22. If so, how?

    Anyway...on to the next topic.

    -

    23. And then what?

    Ahem. NEXT TOPIC.

    -

    24. If a train left New York going west at 76 MPH and another train left Los Angeles going east at 64 MPH, both at the same time, who would take the time to calculate when they would meet each other, and who cares? Is there really that many opportunities in life to need such skills? I mean, who cares? God, I hate school. I'm never going back. YOU HEAR ME, GOD? NEVER!

    First of all, I would hope that they'd NEVER meet. Train wrecks are bad. Secondly, wait till you get to college. College *rules*.

    -

    25. Describe, in 5 words or less, why the CPA is the best Magic site around, and/or why I should be allowed to rule it with an iron fist and absolute authority over all that come here, banning users and deleting posts with cruel abandon and irreverent reasons.

    Get In Line, A$$ Munch.
  8. Neil Rigby New Member

    1) Came looking early 2000, got net access myself later probably around July ish maybe, I dunno

    2) Gizmo, He's great don't you think?

    3) Blue and white are better than orange and black

    4) Probably, not read it really

    5) Not a lot really, Sat thinking about it and came up with zero. :)

    6) Too long (6 yrs)

    7) Gizmo, He's great don't you think?

    8) When I first played magic the 'community' consisted of Gizmo, He's great don't you think?, and his brother so it has increased and thus improved it parts at least

    9) I would ideally like to stop stupid people from playing and wasting my time. This sounds really harsh but I find it very difficult to enjoy magic when my opponent is just making quite obviously terrible plays. I don't mind people making mistakes or trying things out in situations so that they can improve their game but people making terrible plays just irritates me.

    10) A cat

    11) Bag of ****e

    12) No

    13) Yes

    14) Snog a girl (attractive blonde (girl A)) who he works with in full view of the girl who he is in a relationship with (girl B (VERY sexy)), who also happens to work at the same place, and then leave girl A in the club to go home with Gizmo, He's great don't you think? (friend C) even though she should be staying at his house (idiots house, not Gizmo's, He's great don't you think?). Then continue his relationship with girl B even though she is engaged to person D, and spend the next 8 months of his life wandering around with his head up his arse not knowing what to do for the best.

    15) In magic: Sell a summer magic Force of Nature (approx value $300) for $25 (£15 in real money), an Icy Manipulator and a Reflecting Pool
    In life: Answer question 14 truthfully :(

    16) No, but I have woken up in some strange place's

    17) No

    18) No, I can dance :D

    19) What do you mean GO insane !!!

    20) Because this is not a crayon!

    21) Because if it was a crayon it wouldn't be the computer I need to type in this post!

    22) Both items are totally different from each other so the likelyhood of them being the same is so small that they don't even bear(?) relevance to the rest of this post.

    23) Then all items that bear(?) no resemblance to each other become the same and we all end up with only one thing that we own but have several thousand of them so will never run out, could be useful. Who knows?

    24) Math students, Not many people, No, Still not many people, Yes I hear you.

    25) Smilies,:)Magic, Questionaires, People, Gizmo, He's great don't you think?

    The site is more profesional looking.

    4) Do you think that the CPA is holding up to the mission statement made at it's inception? (if you read it, that is)
    Unfortuenatly, I think the CPA takes a few baby steps away from the "casual" sceen everyday.

    5) If you could change one thing about this site, what would it be?
    That we could edit our own posts.

    6) How long have you played Magic?
    Since Ice Age

    7) What made you first try the game?
    Thought "Why not, might as well give it a try"

    8) Are you as happy with the Magic community as a whole now as when you joined?
    Still the same bunch of geeks and nerds as always, myself included.

    9) If you could change one thing about the game of Magic, what would you change?
    As many others said, less frequent set releases.

    10) If you could be an animal, what would you be?
    A lazy, fat house cat.

    11) What do you think of all those "New World Order" theories? Ate up, or what?
    Yep.

    12) Is Walt Disney really cryogenicaly frozen inside Sleeping Beauty's Palace in Disney World?
    No, it's an urban legend.

    13) Did you know that Al Capone died alone and insane from syphalis while in prison?
    Yes, as a matter of fact, I did know that.

    14) What is the stupidest thing you have ever seen anyone do?

    Yes

    17) Have you ever written a story or poem or what ever, and then find out that someone else has gotten ahold of it and is reading it to everyone and making fun of you in horrid and emotionaly scarring ways that you will never get over and will hamper your social skills for years to come?

    18) Have you ever seen yourself on video dancing and realized how idiotic you look?
    See question #14

    Yes, in short order

    20) Why?
    No one to talk to.


    21) Why not?
    no reason

    22) If so, how?
    from being utterly alone

    23) And then what?
    I would die and rot away to nothing...

    24) If a train left New York going West at 76 MPH and another trane left Los Angelas going East at 64 MPH, both at the same time, who would take the time to calculate when they would meet each other, and who cares? Is there really that many oppertunities in life to need such skills? I mean, who cares? God, I hate school. I'm never going back. YOU HEAR ME GOD? NEVER!
    Damn straight!

    25) Describe, in 5 words or less, why the CPA is the best Magic site around, and/or, why I should be allowed to rule it with an iron fist and absolute athority over all that come here, banning users and deleting posts with cruel abandon and irreverent reasons.

    Because I am the coolest! (snicker)
  11. Nyx New Member

    1) When did you first come to the CPA?
    I don't remember. Only a little while ago.

    2) What brought you here?
    Looking for a Magic site with more than just deck lists, and that emphasized playing for fun instead of playing to win.

    3) What do you think of the changes that may have occured since you first joined?
    Haven't been any that I noticed.

    4) Do you think that the CPA is holding up to the mission statement made at it's inception? (if you read it, that is)
    I read it, and no I don't.

    5) If you could change one thing about this site, what would it be?
    Less emphasis on tournament play in the articles and deck advice.

    6) How long have you played Magic?
    Since Antiquities was new.

    7) What made you first try the game?
    Reading an interview with Richard Garfield where he talked about the story in the game being told piecemeal on the cards as if the players were archaeologists rediscovering lost knowledge Even with all the cards in your hands, the story would still be incomplete.

    8) Are you as happy with the Magic community as a whole now as when you joined?
    Nope. It's too competative and there's too much jealousy about the successes of the people on the Pro Tour. No one wants to hang out at coffee shops and play until 2:00am with me anymore.

    9) If you could change one thing about the game of Magic, what would you change?
    Enforced ante at all games.

    10) If you could be an animal, what would you be?
    Humans are animals. I'd prefer to remain a human. If I had to be another animal, then Homo Erectus would be fun. If I had to leave the hominid tree, then I'd go for something like a Tyrranosaurus so I could destroy Tokyo and eat people.

    11) What do you think of all those "New World Order" theories? Ate up, or what?
    I don't know what you're talking about.

    12) Is Walt Disney really cryogenicaly frozen inside Sleeping Beauty's Palace in Disney World?
    Not as far as I know.

    13) Did you know that Al Capone died alone and insane from syphalis while in prison?
    I've heard that. But I also heard that he was killed by another inmate. I don't actually know which is true as I've never cared enough to look it up.

    14) What is the stupidest thing you have ever seen anyone do?
    freeclimb halfway up the outside of a football stadium because he was bored. I also saw someone comit suicide off my 10th floor balcony, but I don't think you're looking for serious answers.

    15) What is the stupidest thing you have ever done?
    With a masters degree in writing, I accepted a job as a secretary, which I kept for a year.

    16) Have you ever awoke, hung over and groggy in some one else's car and don't know haw you got there?
    I'm allergic to alcohol. No I have never woken up hung over.

    17) Have you ever written a story or poem or what ever, and then find out that someone else has gotten ahold of it and is reading it to everyone and making fun of you in horrid and emotionaly scarring ways that you will never get over and will hamper your social skills for years to come?
    No. But I did send a poem to Shae Marks and she posted it on her website. And in 5th grade I submitted a short story to Schoolastic Scope and they rejected it telling me it was too violent and dark and that kids wouldn't enjoy a story that academic. I don't think they knew I was in 5th grade.

    18) Have you ever seen yourself on video dancing and realized how idiotic you look?
    I don't dance. I once grabbed onto a pillar for 5 minutes while my girlfriend tried to drag me onto a dance floor. I would sooner castrate myself with a rusty spork than dance and I'm not saying that as a figure of speech. I know exactly how idiotic I'd look were I to dance and I don't intend to ever do it.

    19) If you were the last man/woman on the planet, and your only other source of companionship was a life-sized card-board cut out of Strom Thurman, would you go insane?
    No.

    20) Why?
    See below.

    21) Why not?
    I like Strom Thurman and I talk to myself on a regular basis so I think we'd be fine.

    22) If so, how?
    See above.

    23) And then what?
    I'd eventually die, alone and in the rain.

    24) If a train left New York going West at 76 MPH and another trane left Los Angelas going East at 64 MPH, both at the same time, who would take the time to calculate when they would meet each other, and who cares? Is there really that many oppertunities in life to need such skills? I mean, who cares? God, I hate school. I'm never going back. YOU HEAR ME GOD? NEVER!
    High school teachers seem to care, and the kids afraid of getting bad grades would take the time to figure it out. No, unless you are working for Amtrak and need to coordinate a train schedule you don't have much use for these actions. The skills themselves, on the other hand, are quite useful, not the least of which includes the much valued skill of being able to do your best work in adverse emotional conditions.

    25) Describe, in 5 words or less, why the CPA is the best Magic site around, and/or, why I should be allowed to rule it with an iron fist and absolute athority over all that come here, banning users and deleting posts with cruel abandon and irreverent reasons.
    Part #1 The CPA: 100% fat-free.
    Part #2 Because you want to.
  12. Elrond Veteran CPA Lurker

    1) When did you first come to the CPA?
    Around June, but I'm not sure.

    2) What brought you here?
    I saw a message of Zadok's in the MtgNews boards and saw a link to the CPA so I thought I'd check it out.

    3) What do you think of the changes that may have occured since you first joined?
    I like most of them.

    4) Do you think that the CPA is holding up to the mission statement made at it's inception? (if you read it, that is)
    I never read it.

    5) If you could change one thing about this site, what would it be?
    I would switch it back to the old background, but I still like the new one it's just that I like the old one better.

    6) How long have you played Magic?
    I started between Ice Age and Alliances sometime, I can't remember.

    7) What made you first try the game?
    I honestly don't remember, but I think it had something to do with seeing someone playing and then seeing it in a store.

    8) Are you as happy with the Magic community as a whole now as when you joined?
    I'm happier with it now because I actually have a group of players to enjoy the game with. When I first started there were only one or two people that I knew who played.

    9) If you could change one thing about the game of Magic, what would you change?
    I would take away the first turn kill combos because they take a lot of the fun out of the game.

    10) If you could be an animal, what would you be?
    Probably a phoenix, they're just cool.

    11) What do you think of all those "New World Order" theories? Ate up, or what?
    I have no opinion on them because I haven't heard that much about them.

    12) Is Walt Disney really cryogenicaly frozen inside Sleeping Beauty's Palace in Disney World?
    I don't think so.

    13) Did you know that Al Capone died alone and insane from syphalis while in prison?
    No.

    14) What is the stupidest thing you have ever seen anyone do?
    Pass a bus on a curve in really icy weather with oncoming traffic.

    15) What is the stupidest thing you have ever done?
    There's too many stupid things to narrow it done to just one.

    16) Have you ever awoke, hung over and groggy in some one else's car and don't know haw you got there?
    No.

    17) Have you ever written a story or poem or what ever, and then find out that someone else has gotten ahold of it and is reading it to everyone and making fun of you in horrid and emotionaly scarring ways that you will never get over and will hamper your social skills for years to come?
    No.

    18) Have you ever seen yourself on video dancing and realized how idiotic you look?
    No because I don't dance, but I do think I look weird on video.

    19) If you were the last man/woman on the planet, and your only other source of companionship was a life-sized card-board cut out of Strom Thurman, would you go insane?
    Probably.

    20) Why?
    I would probably drive myself insane because there are just too many thoughts running around in my head at one time.

    21) Why not?

    22) If so, how?

    23) And then what?

    24) If a train left New York going West at 76 MPH and another trane left Los Angelas going East at 64 MPH, both at the same time, who would take the time to calculate when they would meet each other, and who cares? Is there really that many oppertunities in life to need such skills? I mean, who cares? God, I hate school. I'm never going back. YOU HEAR ME GOD? NEVER!
    I think the only people who care about those kinds of questions are math teachers.

    25) Describe, in 5 words or less, why the CPA is the best Magic site around, and/or, why I should be allowed to rule it with an iron fist and absolute athority over all that come here, banning users and deleting posts with cruel abandon and irreverent reasons.

    #1: It's about casual magic play.
    #2: You shouldn't.
  13. Thallid Ice Cream Man 21sT CeNTuRy sChIZoId MaN

    Before we begin, shouldn't this be moved to Classic Questions? Many of these questions have been asked already.

    anyway,

    1) When did you first come to the CPA?
    August 2000

    2) What brought you here?
    Some guy named Krazy Kow who had read my (very bad) humor articles on The Dojo saved me from that turnip-forsaken place and brought me here. I have barely gone back since.

    3) What do you think of the changes that may have occured since you first joined?
    Many of the posts from when I had just joined seemed to be a lot more substantial and to involve more thought. This is probably not a good thing.

    4) Do you think that the CPA is holding up to the mission statement made at it's inception? (if you read it, that is)
    I didn't read it then, as the link the aforementioned Krazy Kow gave me went directly to the forums. From my understanding of it, pieced together later, I think that its chance for glory was just ending at the time anyway. However, if such a situation should arise again, I have no doubt in the CPA's ability to help deal with it as best as the sum total of the members can. Such a situation would be an issue about which almost everyone in the CPA would have to agree to a certain degree, so there would not be substantial internal squabbles.

    5) If you could change one thing about this site, what would it be?
    I would remove all the banners on the page because a) we don't need to use advertisements (I hope and think) and b) (more importantly, as far as I am concerned :) ) one of them keeps making AOL crash.

    6) How long have you played Magic?
    I've played for three years.

    7) What made you first try the game?
    As I perceived it then, large numbers of my friends were playing it. They all sucked largely, and I stopped for a little while later that year, but then started again, more resolutely determined to do something or other than ever.

    8) Are you as happy with the Magic community as a whole now as when you joined?
    Well, when I joined, said community consisted of one guy who made a card that had been cut apart and was called "Gay", another that was "Bill Gates", and ten other people. Also, the people at the card store were obsessed with tournaments. Considering that I'm on the CPA now, I'm happier, but don't factor me into some study or some such nonsense, as I am an outlier and like it that way.

    9) If you could change one thing about the game of Magic, what would you change?
    I would end the practice of R&D that ignores almost every bit of input from the players themselves, unless they are good enough cheaters to win tournaments (no offense Gizmo, fortunately you aren't a good enough cheater, it would seem. Just kidding! Sorry :) ). What I mean is that at least 5 or so (I'm trying to compromise here!) card slots per set would be allowed to be made by non R&D people.

    10) If you could be an animal, what would you be?
    I'd be a thallid, if that counts. If it doesn't, a raven.

    11) What do you think of all those "New World Order" theories? Ate up, or what?
    One day, god willing, they will have all been thoroughly digested by Galapagosian beach iguanas like so much seaweed and regurgitated onto the shores of the Galapagos islands.

    12) Is Walt Disney really cryogenicaly frozen inside Sleeping Beauty's Palace in Disney World?
    No, he's over there. Say hi for them!
    [me] brings Walt Disney to meet the nice people. [/me]
    Walt Disney: hI kIDDIES!
    Me: See! He's in the prime of his decomposition!

    13) Did you know that Al Capone died alone and insane from syphalis while in prison?
    I thought he was attacked by Julia Child with a carving knife for his having insulted her Turnip Lasagna recipe. Oh well, you learn something everyday.

    14) What is the stupidest thing you have ever seen anyone do?
    Once when I was on a field trip, a guy in the passenger's seat of an eighteen-wheeler passed us and held up what must have been some sort of nude porn foldout. I didn't look for very long, I was just staring out the window, saw it, looked for about a second, then turned away in disgust. [me] looks around nervously.[/me] Yeah, that's all I did...

    15) What is the stupidest thing you have ever done?
    I once left my school's copy of a book in the hills of northern Pennsylvania.

    16) Have you ever awoke, hung over and groggy in some one else's car and don't know haw you got there?
    Unless my birth counts, no.

    17) Have you ever written a story or poem or what ever, and then find out that someone else has gotten ahold of it and is reading it to everyone and making fun of you in horrid and emotionaly scarring ways that you will never get over and will hamper your social skills for years to come?
    This will probably happen to me later in my life, but it hasn't happened yet.

    18) Have you ever seen yourself on video dancing and realized how idiotic you look?
    Fortunately, I have never had the displeasure of taking part in this "video" "dancing". [me] holds his fingers up to imitate quotation marks in the air.[/me] Had I the chance, I'd probably remember this post and avoid it.

    19) If you were the last man/woman on the planet, and your only other source of companionship was a life-sized card-board cut out of Strom Thurman, would you go insane?
    My tires would deflate, and I'd be too lazy to walk to insane, so probably not. Instead, I'd find a cardboard farm and make cut-outs of other people ... heh heh heh ... specific other people ... heh heh heh ... some more than others ... heh heh heh

    20) Why?
    There are no laws against cardboard farms! It's a free country! Besides, I'M THE KING OF THE WORLD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    21) Why not?
    Take the antonym of every word in my response to 20, and you have your answer.

    22) If so, how?
    What, are we having problems finding antonyms? Get a bloody thesaurus!

    23) And then what?
    Then I bought a ferry ticket to Kansas from Nebraska. But enough about me, let's talk about you.

    24) If a train left New York going West at 76 MPH and another trane left Los Angelas going East at 64 MPH, both at the same time, who would take the time to calculate when they would meet each other, and who cares? Is there really that many oppertunities in life to need such skills? I mean, who cares? God, I hate school. I'm never going back. YOU HEAR ME GOD? NEVER!
    Well, since the only known tranes in the universe leave Toledo, Ohio every 15 days on their trek across the kiosk platform in search of new and exciting kiosks and little else, this isn't even an issue.

    25) Describe, in 5 words or less, why the CPA is the best Magic site around, and/or, why I should be allowed to rule it with an iron fist and absolute athority over all that come here, banning users and deleting posts with cruel abandon and irreverent reasons.

    'Cause we can list more than five words if we damn well want to and cause we lack of verbs for the same reason.

    PENCILS DOWN!

    Hope that didn't ruin the grade curve..
    [me] sits, looking confident[/me]

  14. Gerode Becoming a Lurker Again

    1) When did you first come to the CPA?
    First week of September.

    2) What brought you here?
    I had been visiting the CPA main page for a month or so after seeing a link somewhere. By boredom one day, I stumbled upon the Message Boards.

    3) What do you think of the changes that may have occured since you first joined?
    I still like the Black/Orange color scheme better.

    4) Do you think that the CPA is holding up to the mission statement made at it's inception? (if you read it, that is)
    Not really, because the Mission Statements is rather irrelevant to today's situation.

    5) If you could change one thing about this site, what would it be?
    Create a space-time continuum hole so I could spend more time surfing around the boards.

    6) How long have you played Magic?
    When Portal came out, right around the Weatherlight/Tempest era.

    7) What made you first try the game?
    Someone I knew said it was a cool game, and I was a baseball card collector at the time, and it was another collection to start.

    8) Are you as happy with the Magic community as a whole now as when you joined?
    When I joined, I really didn't know anyone who played other than that friend and my brother, and maybe 3 people at school. Now, almost all of my good friends play Magic, and I haven't had any bad experiences with other players yet.

    9) If you could change one thing about the game of Magic, what would you change?
    two expansions per year, so I could focus more energy on getting cards I want but do not need for my decks.

    10) If you could be an animal, what would you be?
    I'd like to be my cat! He has no responsibilities, can sleep/eat all day, gets attention when he wants, and does nothing in return! ;)

    11) What do you think of all those "New World Order" theories? Ate up, or what?
    Uhh... no...

    12) Is Walt Disney really cryogenicaly frozen inside Sleeping Beauty's Palace in Disney World?
    Walt Disney is currently underneath the farmland and cattle pastures at Area 51, not in Nevada but actually near the town (planet?) of Duvall, Wash.
    If you read this, I will have to kill you ;)

    13) Did you know that Al Capone died alone and insane from syphalis while in prison?
    Didn't he have any cellmates?

    14) What is the stupidest thing you have ever seen anyone do?
    http://www.darwinawards.com/ have better acts of stupidity than I can possibly provide.

    15) What is the stupidest thing you have ever done?
    Not sure. A few days ago though, I chugged a quart of egg nog in less than 20 seconds.

    16) Have you ever awoke, hung over and groggy in some one else's car and don't know haw you got there?
    Not since I got kicked out of that bar when I was 14 last year.

    17) Have you ever written a story or poem or what ever, and then find out that someone else has gotten ahold of it and is reading it to everyone and making fun of you in horrid and emotionaly scarring ways that you will never get over and will hamper your social skills for years to come?
    No. I think I was the "reader" to people once, though.

    18) Have you ever seen yourself on video dancing and realized how idiotic you look?
    I realize how idiotic I look before I even start dancing.

    19) If you were the last man/woman on the planet, and your only other source of companionship was a life-sized card-board cut out of Strom Thurman, would you go insane?
    I'd be worse than FrigginRizzo.

    20) Why?
    Guess how, cheif.

    21) Why not?
    Gerode---> Confused

    22) If so, how?
    By losing my sanity and stuff.

    23) And then what?
    I would be a lunatic. Or not.

    24) If a train left New York going West at 76 MPH and another trane left Los Angelas going East at 64 MPH, both at the same time, who would take the time to calculate when they would meet each other, and who cares? Is there really that many oppertunities in life to need such skills? I mean, who cares? God, I hate school. I'm never going back. YOU HEAR ME GOD? NEVER!
    I said something like that once to my math teacher in 7th grade!

    25) Describe, in 5 words or less, why the CPA is the best Magic site around, and/or, why I should be allowed to rule it with an iron fist and absolute athority over all that come here, banning users and deleting posts with cruel abandon and irreverent reasons.

  19. Zadok001 CPA Founder, Greater Good

    This is possibly the longest thread with only that many posts... :)

    1) When did you first come to the CPA?

    Right when it was Founded. :)

    2) What brought you here?

    Ed's URL link in his email.

    3) What do you think of the changes that may have occured since you first joined?

    Hmm... All things considered, undeniably for the better. The color scheme (the main reference, I believe), is a great improvement in my humble opinion.

    4) Do you think that the CPA is holding up to the mission statement made at it's inception? (if you read it, that is)

    Nope. :) Oh, well - We're accomplishing a similar goal through a different action.

    5) If you could change one thing about this site, what would it be?

    I'd lengthen all the articles by about two pages.

    6) How long have you played Magic?

    Since the Dark/Revised.

    7) What made you first try the game?

    Two friends of mine gave me a pack or two. I built a U/B deck, and got my head kicked in. That was unacceptable to my competetive brain, so I came back for more!

    8) Are you as happy with the Magic community as a whole now as when you joined?

    Happier! :)

    9) If you could change one thing about the game of Magic, what would you change?

    Hmm... I'd make some _serious_ changes to the Type 1 format, make it playable again, and then go back in time and make Blastoderm a 4/5. :)

    10) If you could be an animal, what would you be?

    A sheep. :) I wonder what an astoundingly weak intellect would feel like, Ok?

    11) What do you think of all those "New World Order" theories? Ate up, or what?

    You down wit' da' lingo, man!

    12) Is Walt Disney really cryogenicaly frozen inside Sleeping Beauty's Palace in Disney World?

    Yups. Let 'em out, someone needs to fix the Pirates of the Caribbian.

    13) Did you know that Al Capone died alone and insane from syphalis while in prison?

    Yah, actually!

    14) What is the stupidest thing you have ever seen anyone do?

    Wow, THAT'S a big can of worms. How 'bout lift a board they were standing on?

    15) What is the stupidest thing you have ever done?

    Made too much noise. (INSIDE JOKE ALERT!)

    16) Have you ever awoke, hung over and groggy in some one else's car and don't know haw you got there?

    I'm 17. Alcohol is Bad Things(tm).

    17) Have you ever written a story or poem or what ever, and then find out that someone else has gotten ahold of it and is reading it to everyone and making fun of you in horrid and emotionaly scarring ways that you will never get over and will hamper your social skills for years to come?

    Nope. If I had, would I write articles? Nooo...

    18) Have you ever seen yourself on video dancing and realized how idiotic you look?

    I've danced three times in my life. All at the same dance. With the same person. In the dark. No one would be allowed within a mile radius with a video camera, lest I tear their eyes out and castrate them.

    19) If you were the last man/woman on the planet, and your only other source of companionship was a life-sized card-board cut out of Strom Thurman, would you go insane?

    No. First I'd program Hal. THEN I'd go insane.

    20) Why?

    Duh.

    21) Why not?

    Absolutely not!

    22) If so, how?

    My GOD! You sick bastard!

    23) And then what?

    Geez, enough with the sick question already!

    24) If a train left New York going West at 76 MPH and another trane left Los Angelas going East at 64 MPH, both at the same time, who would take the time to calculate when they would meet each other, and who cares? Is there really that many oppertunities in life to need such skills? I mean, who cares? God, I hate school. I'm never going back. YOU HEAR ME GOD? NEVER!

    I just calculated that, just to piss you off. :)
