* How does it feel to be a mod who doesn't suck up to other mods and isn't afraid to articulate own opinion?
* What differences there are between MTF and WTAw according to you (uhmm, next month I will write an article about tennis forums, so your answer may actually help)
* What do you consider your biggest success up to date?
* What is your perfect age to get married?
* Where would you like to go for a dream holiday?
* If you won 100K $, what would be the first thing that comes to your mind you'd like to buy?
* Can we now post endless spotlight threads in GM? :D

1) What's one impression you don't want people to have of you when you first talk to them?
2) Ideally, where do you see yourself in ten years ten? Realistically, where will you actually be?
3) If you were to ban one MTF member now...?
4) When's the last time you cried? :D
5) How many continuous hours can you spend online before getting bored?

- Feels liberating.
- GM over there is a total mess, tons of useless threads on what parties players attend and all sort of crap that would be moved to the player's forums here, also the NT is a lot more active there, which is not necessarily good. :help:
- That it looks I'll actually graduate with a law degree, despite what some doubters might have said along the way. :lol:
- I guess when you find the person you want to marry and you have a steady source of income to be able to support the family.
- Somewhere with a lot of stuff to see and do.
- Probably all the stuff needed to finish the house we're building.
- No, if there'll be too many, they'll be returned to the dungeons. :p
1) What's one impression you don't want people to have of you when you first talk to them?
2) Ideally, where do you see yourself in ten years ten? Realistically, where will you actually be?
3) If you were to ban one MTF member now...?
4) When's the last time you cried? :D
5) Are you delighted at how much undivided attention you're going to receive while our threads are locked away in the polls forum? :p
- That I'm a weirdo I guess.
- Ideally I'll have a low-stress job with a decent enough pay, so I'll be able to live normally and have enough spare time to do things and visit places I like. Realistically I might find myself working at a law office, with "flexible" horrible hours, minimum pay and working like an ass from dusk till dawn.
- There are quite a few that I'd like to ban. :(
- Hmmm I don't think I've cried in quite a while, surprising, the last time was probably when my aunt died in July.
- Check your facts first. :p

And to answer the edited in question, that amount seems to be shorter and shorter every day. :lol:

I live near Trieste, on the other side of the border though. :p
Sai che Maldini e Triestino, e un altro Triestino Nereo Rocco era uno dei grandi allenatori del Milan, penso che in Trieste sono quasi tutti Milanisti. :p

And I should be the one forgiving you about your football taste. :rolleyes: :p

- What's the craziest thing you've done with glue?
- I think it would be boring, having goals to fight for all the time is what breaks the monotony. About the corruptor part, well if you get it with your own work then more power to you, inheriting it on the other hand, is hardly gonna have a positive effect on someone's behaviour.
- I don't mind them, if I'm not outside.
- I'd probably choose the never wear trousers again option.
- I think aliens would probably be just curious, but it could soon turn into independence day stuff, but more cause of how they'd get accepted here knowing what kind of people live on this planet.
do you really hate me?
why are you so irritating?
why when i read you i think you are furious?
- why would I hate you?
- I think you find me irritating is because I don't agree with you

- If she'd stick to just making music, I'd be fine, not something I listen to, but a lot of people do and she still made some quality stuff, it's the other stuff around her that's boring and annoying.
- Well I'd probably say the 90s and the start of this one as that's the time I'm most familiar with.
- Yes, I'm hoping it has.
- Having grown up in a country with heavy socialism influence, it's not hard to guess. :p And calling Obama a socialist is an insult.
- I really don't know, couldn't think of one.
- I have a very good memory so I do have some exchanges stored in my mind, not necessarily because of their importance to me. :lol: But MTF has enabled me to get to know and meet some great people, so I guess exchanges leading me to know thos people are pretty significant.

If voting was done within a certain time span of 12 or 24 hours then I think it would benefit the clown that has a worldwide following. This year a bit of luck was needed with the starting times.

- Once she threw a hissy fit, because Chakvetadze described her as a good junior thinking she was supposed to kiss her feet or sth, I don't know, at the time she was a little known player and expected others to praise her or sth, what Chakvetadze said was a fact though.

- A job starting early next year maybe.
- Chicken.
- Yes, Obama is a better choice, he's no messiah as some think he is. But what Obama does with whose money is not an issue that concerns me much, it's hardly going to affect me.
- I was in primary school, sixth or seven year and for a very short time I had sth similar to what Jim Carrey had in Dumb and Dumber, because the woman doing my hair sucked. :p But since I cut my hair quite short nowadays those nightmares are not an issue anymore.

1) I have no preference, but surely things cannot get worse than they are now.
2) AO - Djokovic FO - Nadal Wimby - Federer USO - Murray
3) Dunno exactly, over 15 years ago for sure as I still remember, when Seles burst onto scene and Goran's first Wimby finals, but as I was very young at the time most of it is a blur.
4) Wimbledon final 2001 - Ivanisevic vs. Rafter, the emotions, the atmosphere, the drama, a classic.
5) I don't think mtf is as bad as it is, some people should stop with the constant baiting. :p
6) If retired players count, then again it's the Wimby final 2001, Goran was/is one of my all time favourites. About the second part of the question, don't know, I don't have any favourite match-ups.
7) Maybe of finishing my degree soon.
8) Does being lazy count?
9) Tough question to which I unfortunately have no answer at the moment.
10) I don't have a favourite coach. :lol:
11) Good: relaxed, ability to make people laugh, helpful, very good memory
Bad: stubborn, I sometimes leave everything to the last minute, messy at times
12) Just being carefree and being outside all day playing football and stuff like that.

Being half-Serbian, do you consider yourself Djokotard, Jankovictard, Ivanovictard or just a low profile Zemlja/Tkalec tard?
See, it's interesting, when I was younger I guess I was a Yugo-nostalgic, so I still supported the Yugoslav national team and after that the Serbian and I guess in some sports I still like to see them do well, but it doesn't matter as much as before.
I feel Slovenian, but I not like some, who hide what they really are.

To answer your question I'm actually not any of those. :lol: I used to quite like Djokovic I guess, but with all the antics it got too much lately, I never liked Jankovic, annoying drama queen, I was okay with Ivanovic before, but all the fist-pumping and screaming made her way too annoying.

I'm not a fan of any of our guys in particular, I wish them all the best and I like seeing them doing well, because I know it's not easy to succeed in tennis coming from Slovenia.

Who should start for the national team?
All but Vujacic for me and maybe Lakovic would only come from the bench with Udrih as the starting pg.
Smodis is one of my favourite players, great heart, great fighter, one of the best forwards in Europe in the past few years, first foreign captain of CSKA, gives his everything and enjoys playing for the national team.
Lakovic is a very useful player, always played for the national team, not the tallest, but a very good scorer, I think he's third on the all-time Euroleague scoring list.
Nachbar was sometimes criticised for being a me first player, especially in the national team, but his versatility is too important to ignore, if only he wouldn't take too many stupid shots.
Rasho is a model professional, but he's said he's retiring from the national team, I hope the new coach changes his mind, because he's a very good player, he's also having a solid season in the NBA this year.

Vujacic is an overrated mug, who thinks he's a god, just because he's cool with Kobe. Get out with that crap, I don't think he ever played for the senior national team and I'm happy with that, with the quality we have he wouldn't bring all that much to the table.

- I'm not really a United fan, similar to you they are my faves out of the top 4, but my life is hardly influenced by their results. :p And Celtic were winning fuck all, when I started liking and following them. :lol:
- If it makes him happy, then good for him, his previous gf was better looking by far and from what I've heard a really nice person as well.
- Subtle? :p I enjoy a bit of banter, but I also struggle acting nice to people I don't like, it's up to the person involved to figure out if it's just banter or...
- Well weather doesn't get a high grade, admittedly I was there round new year's so it was never going to be nice to begin with, I didn't mind the constant drizzle though, I give it a 5. I don't think I've experienced enough culture to rate it, but from what I did I give it an 8. People get 9, those I actually met were all great, some bad apples on mtf though. :( Interest as in how interesting I find Scotland? If so it's at least a 9, I loved it and I'm thinking of going again next summer. And maybe then I'll experience nightlife too and will be able to rate it. :p
- Freya's really busy working, so she has little time for anything let alone mtf.
