PopCon 2011 Interview Thread



So others can get to know you better, or just for fun, here's a thread where you can answer questions.
There might be special interviews with the contestants in the high rounds later in the contest.

The thread is open to everyone, just please try to stick to the Q&A format somehow.
Here are some questions that you can start with, you can answer all of them or pick and choose just a few, or even make up new questions of your own, in 4 categories(you don't have to stick to the categories, they're just here for convenience):

PopCon

What do you think the PopCon is about?

In your opinion, what's the difference between the ACC and the PopCon?

If you win, as the reigning people's champion, what do you intend to do during your ruling year?

If you don't win, how do you plan to passively guilttrip the winner throughout the year?

Do you think there should be some joint activity for the four MTF champions, and what do you propose?

Predict this year's winner.

Name someone who you'd like to see win, but don't think has a chance.


MTF

A mod genie appears to you, and you have three instant MTF wishes. What do you ask for?

What do you like doing on MTF most?

How would you compare the four MTF contests(ACC, PopCon, MsMTF, MrMTF) with the four slams?

Do you play TT, and what are your career highlights?

Do you agree with the permaban policy? (= should any member be permabanned, ever)

How do you generally react to a thread/post that annoys you?

If you could invite five people from public life into MTF, and be certain that they'd join, who would you invite?


Tennis

Who are your favourite players, and why?

How closely do you follow the ATP tour, and what would you say your tennis knowledge level is?

What's your favourite slam, and why?

Do you think the concept of the Big 4 is entirely justified and what do you think about their place in history and legacy?

Which player is, in your opinion, hugely underrated?

Name three things about the tour that you'd like to see fixed.

Do you have any matchups that you watch purposely for the bad tennis?


Personality

Describe yourself in three words.

Describe your mornings in three words.

Name at least three things in your life that you love equally as much as tennis.

What kind of music do you like, and how much does it mean to you?

What are your five favourite movies?

Favourite things from your childhood?

If you had a free afternoon in a big city, where would you spend it;
a)the park,
b)modern bars, checking out the people,
c)dingy bars, getting dead drunk,
d)museum,
e)cinema,
f)whatever sports event you can find on short notice,
g)the mall/city centre/shopping,

Default Re: PopCon 2011 Interview Thread

PopCon

What do you think the PopCon is about?

When it was started, Naranoc and I wanted to watch people behave in a moral dilemma whom from the little society MTF is they prefer more: friend A or friend B, and the reactions of the aforementioned friends after decision was made. And we wanted to gossip about it by PM. Plus we wanted to kick the shit out of the Rafa chat thread.

In your opinion, what's the difference between the ACC and the PopCon?

PopCon provides more blood, though 2011 edition is shaping to be niche and peaceful.

If you win, as the reigning people's champion, what do you intend to do during your ruling year?

I'd probably go back to the challenger forum, speak to no one, and watch Filo V every day performing his very best.

If you don't win, how do you plan to passively guilttrip the winner throughout the year?

I don't think I've done it so far in any contest, so I guess I'll just do what I always do - go back to the challenger forum, speak to no one, and watch Filo V every day perfoming his very best.

Do you think there should be some joint activity for the four MTF champions, and what do you propose?

Fight for the better world.


Predict this year's winner.

I think Mike is able to repeat his success from 2010; in the final last year I had people working for votes for me, and he alone must have done an insane job, I don't imagine anyone surpassing such stunts. Unless he plays Betty, because maybe he wouldn't campaign against her. Sonja1989 can go very very far as well.

Name someone who you'd like to see win, but don't think has a chance.

Henry Chinaski. Great journalist, speaks about the world as he sees it, no drama, no fakeness, witty and spot on.

MTF


A mod genie appears to you, and you have three instant MTF wishes. What do you ask for?

Unlimited reps, big avatars, hahaha threads

What do you like doing on MTF most?

Reading Johnny Groove threads.

How would you compare the four MTF contests(ACC, PopCon, MsMTF, MrMTF) with the four slams?

After the surface homogenization slams are pretty much the same, while our contests are still different.

Do you play TT, and what are your career highlights?

I think managing a masters with ibreak4coffee was something cool this year.

Do you agree with the permaban policy? (= should any member be permabanned, ever)

People like Ernham, Ezekiel and stuff - surely yes. But as the forum lasts, there are people who show their nice side, who have friends, who are really missed, and I think forum contributors (in this way) shouldn't be permabanned.

How do you generally react to a thread/post that annoys you?

I try not to, but sometimes I reply very very seriously to people who claim every match where a player lost after having a mp is fixed, or where people speak up on Kazakhstan/Russian/Ukrainian issues having no dim clue about our reality in this part of the world.

If you could invite five people from public life into MTF, and be certain that they'd join, who would you invite?

Surely Michael Jackson so he could meet Bilbo and they can read a book together on how to seduce much younger girls.
And probably leng jai's mom so everyone could fap at her posts.

Tennis


Who are your favourite players, and why?

At this moment? Nalbandian for old time's sake and Dolgopolov because he is magic with all his approach. I also enjoy players like Lalo, Stakhovsky, Kubot, Mannarino, Stepanek when they are on.

How closely do you follow the ATP tour, and what would you say your tennis knowledge level is?

I used to be a journalist on this for over 6 years (omg) so I generally was up to date.

What's your favourite slam, and why?

US Open because it starts at normal hour.

Do you think the concept of the Big 4 is entirely justified and what do you think about their place in history and legacy?

At this moment, yes.

Which player is, in your opinion, hugely underrated?

Probably the answer would be "David Ferrer," but a few years ago he accidentaly became a hero of a silly thread, so he is recognized here. Earlier he wasn't.

Name three things about the tour that you'd like to see fixed.

Schukin-Dolgopolov, Volandri-Starace, Chela-Schwank

Do you have any matchups that you watch purposely for the bad tennis?

Matteo Viola vs. Paolo Lorenzi

Personality


Describe yourself in three words.

I am Nat(s).

Describe your mornings in three words.

chaos. zombie. 4pm.

Name at least three things in your life that you love equally as much as tennis.

coffee, coffee with whipped cream, volleyball, sunsets on the beach at the baltic sea at 7 C degrees in summer, sushi in moscow, walks at nights through the big cities. one thing would be ahead of tennis and other things: creating emotion/laughter with my writing

What kind of music do you like, and how much does it mean to you?

i'm not a big freak but out of more known bands i'd mention system of a down, gogol bordello, archive, placebo, radiohead, pearl jam, metallica

What are your five favourite movies?

shaun of the dead, battle royale, les visiteurs, kill bill and let's have one serious - the shawshank redemption

Favourite things from your childhood?

my cat

If you had a free afternoon in a big city, where would you spend it;

a)the park,

What do you think the PopCon is about?

Voting for the least retarded MTF poster. Guess 90% of us don't stand a chance.

In your opinion, what's the difference between the ACC and the PopCon?

ACC is all about hate and being vile. I'm guessing this is about fake love for people you have never met.

If you win, as the reigning people's champion, what do you intend to do during your ruling year?

I'll try to be more bitchy to Faker fans and nicer to all other posters.

If you don't win, how do you plan to passively guilttrip the winner throughout the year?

Couldn't give a fuck.

Do you think there should be some joint activity for the four MTF champions, and what do you propose?

No.

Predict this year's winner.

Carlita. Super sweet and super amaze.

MTF

Trolling.

How would you compare the four MTF contests(ACC, PopCon, MsMTF, MrMTF) with the four slams?

Atleast Faker or Fugly Murray can't win these events on MTF, so by default they are automatically better.

Do you play TT, and what are your career highlights?

No, that's for ****s.

Do you agree with the permaban policy? (= should any member be permabanned, ever)

I agree with it. This forum was abused by morons (a.k.a its.like.twat) for years, they need to be permabanned so the rest of us can troll in peace.

How do you generally react to a thread/post that annoys you?

1. Bad rep
2. Troll the thread
3. Systematically abuse the poster over 12 months.

If you could invite five people from public life into MTF, and be certain that they'd join, who would you invite?

Tony Blair
George Bush
Boris Johnson
Myra Hindley
Ian Brady

Tennis

Miss MTF is the Aussie Open, cool calm, collected.

Mr. MTF is like RG, catfights and backstabbing, crowds are insane

PopCon

Quote:
What do you think the PopCon is about?
A fun way to tell other members that you appreciate their efforts on this site. Reminds me why I keep coming back to this site.

Quote:
In your opinion, what's the difference between the ACC and the PopCon?
In the ACC you vote for members that you feel contribute negatively to the site (trolls, offensive posters, ets) while in the PopCon you vote for members that you feel contribute positively to the site.

Quote:
If you win, as the reigning people's champion, what do you intend to do during your ruling year?
Work on defending the title.

Quote:
If you don't win, how do you plan to passively guilttrip the winner throughout the year?
Save any mildly controversial post and use it against them

A permaban policy should exist but it should be a rare punishment for things like deleting a double account (one of the accounts).

Quote:

I try to ingore them but I sometimes retaliate with some smartass coment. Ussually it makes things worse

Quote:
If you could invite five people from public life into MTF, and be certain that they'd join, who would you invite?
Djokovic, Murray, Roddick, Karlovic, and Tsonga. I think their personalities would be fun on this site. I excluded Federer and Nadal because there are already enough Federer and Nadal threads without them being here.

Tennis

Quote:
Who are your favourite players, and why?
Dolgopolov. I love the unique and aggressive way that he plays the game. I must admit that his nationality also contributes to me supporting him.

Quote:
How closely do you follow the ATP tour, and what would you say your tennis knowledge level is?
Not as regularly as when I was gambling on tennis. I try to follow all tournaments but everything is time dependent. I wish I would have time to watch more matches in their entirety instead of learning the score after the fact or just seeing a set. My tennis knowledge is not fantastic but I play a lot of tennis and I feel this does help.

Quote:
What's your favourite slam, and why?
US Open. I go to college in upstate NY and this is the only slam that I have been to live.

Quote:
Do you think the concept of the Big 4 is entirely justified and what do you think about their place in history and legacy?
I think of it as the Big 3, but it could become the big 4 in the future.

Alternative and electronic music. Music is enjoyable from time to time but it's not essential in my life.

Default Re: PopCon 2011 Interview Thread

What do you think the PopCon is about?

Being known in MTF.

In your opinion, what's the difference between the ACC and the PopCon?

ACC is like the PopCon in the first couple of rounds, after that it turns out to be a clown fight, while I guess the PopCon is about the liked posters.

If you win, as the reigning people's champion, what do you intend to do during your ruling year?

Give hell to all kinds of tards

If you don't win, how do you plan to passively guilttrip the winner throughout the year?

Ermm no, why would I do that?

Do you think there should be some joint activity for the four MTF champions, and what do you propose?

This years' ACC champ is a nice guy, so why not. Have no fucking idea.

Predict this year's winner.

Eden.

Name someone who you'd like to see win, but don't think has a chance.

Sunset of Age, 'cuz many people don't really know her.


MTF

A mod genie appears to you, and you have three instant MTF wishes. What do you ask for?

* Get rid of tards
* Change some mods
* Eliminate Premium accounts, make everyone have the same rights.

What do you like doing on MTF most?

Check results, statistic threads, Non-Tennis.

How would you compare the four MTF contests(ACC, PopCon, MsMTF, MrMTF) with the four slams?

ACC: Australian Open
PopCon: Wimbledon
MsMTF: Roland Garros
MrMTF: US Open

Do you play TT, and what are your career highlights?

No.

Do you agree with the permaban policy? (= should any member be permabanned, ever)

Oh yes, there are tools of tools in here.

How do you generally react to a thread/post that annoys you?

I answer with facts and if the poster is too unreasonable then I either avoid it or troll it depending on my mood.

If you could invite five people from public life into MTF, and be certain that they'd join, who would you invite?

Rafa so he could be horrified and tell his tards to fuck off.
Nole to participate in ACC.
Simon Reed so he could see for himself how hated he is in the tennis world
Dimitrov to get a reality check, a kick in the ass to get his act together
Roger to PWN people with his tennis knowledge


Tennis

Who are your favourite players, and why?

Rafa 'cuz I love his fight and he's one of the best sportsmen my country has ever had
Roger 'cuz he's the last Maestro, the last player to rely more on his talent than in physicality.
Pics 'cuz he has such a warrior heart, has everything against him and yet he gets very good results.
Juan Martín, 'cuz his attacking style makes my heart pound when he's on, pure power.

How closely do you follow the ATP tour, and what would you say your tennis knowledge level is?

I used to follow more closely before, I attended all kinds of events from Futures to GS, nowadays I don't know much outside of the ATP events, maybe some SA challengers but that's about it.

What's your favourite slam, and why?

Roland Garros, 'cuz I'm Spanish and we love clay (honestly, clay is like air for Spanish players)

Do you think the concept of the Big 4 is entirely justified and what do you think about their place in history and legacy?

Murray still has a LONG way to go before he's in Nole's tier, let's not even talk about Rafa and Roger.

Which player is, in your opinion, hugely underrated?

Ferrer.

Name three things about the tour that you'd like to see fixed.

*Excessive Grunting
*MTO Gamesmanship
*Slowing of surfaces

Do you have any matchups that you watch purposely for the bad tennis?

I don't watch those I don't like although I had to suffer through a Simon/Robredo mugfest in Bercy '07, also any Simon/Monfils match is simply unwatchable.


Personality

Describe yourself in three words.

Honest, Loyal, Funny

Describe your mornings in three words.

Sex. Shower. Breakfast.

Name at least three things in your life that you love equally as much as tennis.

Volleyball, Handball, Figure Skating.

What kind of music do you like, and how much does it mean to you?

I have eclectic tastes but my fave kinds should be Metal and Classical.

What are your five favourite movies?

Mainstream, normal genres:

Schindler's List
The Queen
Love Actually
Delicatessen
LOTR: The Return of The King

I love horror movies like Hellraiser, The Exorcist, series like Friday the 13th and Masters of Horror.

Favourite things from your childhood?

Going to San Mamés, eating pintxos in Casco Viejo, Skiing in Winter.

If you had a free afternoon in a big city, where would you spend it;
a)the park,
b)modern bars, checking out the people,
c)dingy bars, getting dead drunk,
d)museum,
e)cinema,
f)whatever sports event you can find on short notice,
g)the mall/city centre/shopping,
h)something else - describe.

I have kids so my afternoons are almost never free, so I choose the park 'cuz I know I would eventually end up there

Default Re: PopCon 2011 Interview Thread

PopCon

What do you think the PopCon is about?
That for a couple of weeks, the people of MTF are nice to eachother - or at least that's how it looks on the surface. I have heard many stories about underhanded tactics, bribing etc for the popcon but I haven't seen any of it first hand. I think I prefer living in ignorance just in this special case.

In your opinion, what's the difference between the ACC and the PopCon?
Insults are more subtle within the PopCon, which I don't really like. A positive difference though is that I have made friends through the PopCon before. That hasn't happened with the ACC.

If you win, as the reigning people's champion, what do you intend to do during your ruling year?
Wonder what actually happened.

If you don't win, how do you plan to passively guilttrip the winner throughout the year?
I will only guilttrip the winner if it is someone who in my opinion really doesn't deserve it. Don't think that will be the case though.

Do you think there should be some joint activity for the four MTF champions, and what do you propose?
Yeah they should build a gingerbread house together.

Predict this year's winner.
Sonja1989. I'd say Doris or Nadine but they probably post too little.
Mimi or Corey Feldman in with a chance too.

Name someone who you'd like to see win, but don't think has a chance.
Cobalt60. Sue's not entirely without a chance though.


MTF


A mod genie appears to you, and you have three instant MTF wishes. What do you ask for?
To be able to see all my old reps, a bigger avatar & a promise by the mods not to edit my posts when it's not even necessary.

What do you like doing on MTF most?
Have interesting discussions with people who are somewhat open-minded. (Happens way too seldom, sadly.) Other than that... I enjoy imitating Clay Death and SdG

How would you compare the four MTF contests(ACC, PopCon, MsMTF, MrMTF) with the four slams?
Australian Open - MsMTF (The sunshine slam. Blue skies, beautiful courts... the feminine wibe. )
Roland Garros - ACC (The dirtballers have a go at each other. The one who is best at defending - or rather, counterattacking - walks away with the crown.)
Wimbledon - PopCon (The grass sure looks green in the beginning of the competition and everyone acts nice. Then as the weeks go on the ground behind the baseline gets roughed up indeed and bad bounces of redreps and threats start appearing...)
US Open - MrMTF (What country tries to be more macho than USA? )

Do you play TT, and what are your career highlights?

Nope.

Do you agree with the permaban policy? (= should any member be permabanned, ever)
You have to act like a complete idiot time after time after time to get permabanned in this place. Those who get permabanned know what's coming to them. The rules in this case are fine imo.

How do you generally react to a thread/post that annoys you?
Very much depends on the annoying poster in question. With a dumb poster, I often pretend to agree with them while adding some subtle sarcasm for the fun of it. With an avarage poster, I either ignore the post or try to use logical arguments. With a smart poster I try to find out where he or she is coming from before I reply.

If you could invite five people from public life into MTF, and be certain that they'd join, who would you invite?

Tommy Wiseau




Craig Ferguson



Robert Downey Jr



Janko Tipsarevic



Kristen Bell




Tennis

Who are your favourite players, and why?
Federer - for his on-court grace.
Davydenko - for his clean game and surprisingly charismatic personality.
Soderling - hard worker, entertaining game. Also he's Swedish like me.

How closely do you follow the ATP tour, and what would you say your tennis knowledge level is?
Very close the last few years. Tennis knowledge is decent but could be improved.

What's your favourite slam, and why?
Roland Garros. Probably because it is the only slam which has not been slowed down. Also it is easy to follow as it is held in Europe.

Do you think the concept of the Big 4 is entirely justified and what do you think about their place in history and legacy?
As of now there is a big 3. Murray needs to grab a slam to really have a say here I feel.

Which player is, in your opinion, hugely underrated?
Don't think anyone is hugely underrated, but Pics doesn't often get the credit he deserves.

Name three things about the tour that you'd like to see fixed.
Speed up courts that have traditionally been fast. 5 set finals in Masters and the WTF. Organize the US Open in a proper way.

Do you have any matchups that you watch purposely for the bad tennis?
I don't know actually... Fog vs Random Mug, maybe.


Personality

Describe yourself in three words.
Loud. Jack-of-all-trades. Good-hearted.

Describe your mornings in three words.
Please more sleep

Name at least three things in your life that you love equally as much as tennis.
A well-written piece of work (whether it's a book, movie or videogame doesn't matter). The Word. Talking to old friends on the phone.

What kind of music do you like, and how much does it mean to you?
Any genre is fine, as long as it is a song that creates some kind of emotion in me. An example:



I very much enjoy music and I play some myself. I have some friends who basically live their life through music though... it's not like that for me.

What are your five favourite movies?
Hm... don't have a solidified top 5 but these will do.

The Matrix (1999)
The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring - Extended version (2001)
Inception (2010)
Amelie (2001)
Snatch. (2000)

Favourite things from your childhood?
Playing soccer on literally every break in school. Playing Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles with my best friend. I always got to be Michelangelo.

If you had a free afternoon in a big city, where would you spend it;

a)the park,
b)modern bars, checking out the people,
c)dingy bars, getting dead drunk,
d)museum,
e)cinema,
f)whatever sports event you can find on short notice,
g)the mall/city centre/shopping,
h)something else - describe.
I'd probably visit a local church with a good reputation, too.

PopCon

What do you think the PopCon is about?
Good and entertaining stuff. I don't know too much though.

In your opinion, what's the difference between the ACC and the PopCon?
ACC seemed a hateful contest to me, quite opposite of the PopCon.

If you win, as the reigning people's champion, what do you intend to do during your ruling year?
I will try to keep my weird temper during my guy's matches.

If you don't win, how do you plan to passively guilttrip the winner throughout the year?
He/she gets respect from me.

Do you think there should be some joint activity for the four MTF champions, and what do you propose?
I don't.

Predict this year's winner.
Nathaliia or Corey Feldman.

Name someone who you'd like to see win, but don't think has a chance.
Mimi. She is one of the kindness poster but not too active with posts.

MTF

A mod genie appears to you, and you have three instant MTF wishes. What do you ask for?
Bigger avatars, seeing old reps, shorter times for banning, I mean lot of months is too much without some poster.

What do you like doing on MTF most?
Commenting and reading thread of matches I saw and using chat thread where we get know better posters.

How would you compare the four MTF contests(ACC, PopCon, MsMTF, MrMTF) with the four slams?
Don't know.

Do you play TT, and what are your career highlights?
I don't, I'm scared to start to play. Maybe in next year.

Do you agree with the permaban policy? (= should any member be permabanned, ever)
It's bad as we are missing them but they had enough chance to stay around I think.

How do you generally react to a thread/post that annoys you?
I usually ignore it except for players/posters I like, then I use the defending mood. But I won't attack him due to his opinion, just say mine.

If you could invite five people from public life into MTF, and be certain that they'd join, who would you invite?
Most of my favourites in tennis and Karlovic.

Tennis

Who are your favourite players, and why?
If I would write all.. Granollers is my favourite due to his style of game, attitude, work on court and heart of tennis. He must be a very nice guy in real life too.
Kubot, I started to follow because of his look but I like his game and he is such a fighter on court.
Nadal.. you can see I usually like almost all of clay courter anyway.

How closely do you follow the ATP tour, and what would you say your tennis knowledge level is?
I follow lot of tennis, even challenger tours too but not since 10 years.. I think medium I guess.

What's your favourite slam, and why?
Roland Garros because it's clay and very good timing.

Do you think the concept of the Big 4 is entirely justified and what do you think about their place in history and legacy?
Yes.

Which player is, in your opinion, hugely underrated?
Isner and Querrey. Most of Spanish players too.

Do you have any matchups that you watch purposely for the bad tennis?
No. I don't believe in bad matchups but bad timing.

Personality

Describe yourself in three words.
Honest, loyal, enthusiastic.

Describe your mornings in three words.
Where is coffee?

Name at least three things in your life that you love equally as much as tennis.
My family, friends, musics, beach.

What kind of music do you like, and how much does it mean to you?
I listen lot of music, almost always. I don't go to somewhere without my earphone. My favourites are Kesha, Cascada, Inna, Bruno Mars and some Latine music, Juanes and Alejandro Sanz. But almost everyone has at least 1-2 good musics.

What are your five favourite movies?
Pirates of the Caribbean 1, Pirates of the Caribbean 2, Pirates of the Caribbean 3, Pirates of the Caribbean 4.. I like lot of others too but I can't call anything.

Favourite things from your childhood?
Cartoons.

PopCon
Quote:
What do you think the PopCon is about?
It's about who ass-licks the most people. I mean c'mon, look at how many nominations I've received
Quote:
In your opinion, what's the difference between the ACC and the PopCon?
Well, from first looks, it is more civilised than the ACC. But I've heard some, 'stories', to put it nicely, about the PopCon being even worse than the ACC is some respects
Quote:
If you win, as the reigning people's champion, what do you intend to do during your ruling year?
I will become the tyrannical overlord of MTF and will definitely abuse my power to the fullest.

Quote:
If you don't win, how do you plan to passively guilttrip the winner throughout the year?
Sure, why not. You aren't exactly supposed to congratulate your competitors are you?

Quote:
Do you think there should be some joint activity for the four MTF champions, and what do you propose?
Only if I win one of them.

GOAT= Fed, Mimi, Mae, Sunset of age, JayR plus a few more I know . All great, unbiased posters, but they don't have the recognition because they aren't:

i) Trolls
ii) Get pissed off at every word.
iii) Don't have a strong likening to a specific player, hence have the most balanced view.

So sad .


MTF
Quote:
A mod genie appears to you, and you have three instant MTF wishes. What do you ask for?

Why would you tip tennis players? Don't they earn enough already?

Quote:
Do you agree with the permaban policy? (= should any member be permabanned, ever)

PopCon

What do you think the PopCon is about?
Recognizing posters who are nice, pleasant and smart and make you want to hug them.

In your opinion, what's the difference between the ACC and the PopCon?
ACC is for recognizing posters whose posts are some combination of trollish, mean, stupid, narcissistic or just plain WTF?.

If you win, as the reigning people's champion, what do you intend to do during your ruling year?
Totally wear out the hug smiley by hugging everyone.

If you don't win, how do you plan to passively guilttrip the winner throughout the year?
hmmm, I'm not really good at the passive thing -- I either say something bluntly or hold my peace. Anyways, I'm sure the champion will be a deserving winner

Do you think there should be some joint activity for the four MTF champions, and what do you propose?
GROUP HUG.

Predict this year's winner.
Sonja 1989

Name someone who you'd like to see win, but don't think has a chance.
Eden


MTF

A mod genie appears to you, and you have three instant MTF wishes. What do you ask for?
Ability for us to give unlimited reps
I want to be able to change my status from "registered user" to something witty
allow me to use more than 20 smileys in a post (as I found out while writing this interview)


What do you like doing on MTF most?
Laughing at some of the flame wars. And looking at photos in the Federer forum

How would you compare the four MTF contests(ACC, PopCon, MsMTF, MrMTF) with the four slams?
Everything hinges on your draw

Do you play TT, and what are your career highlights?
I don't play

Do you agree with the permaban policy? (= should any member be permabanned, ever)
I think it should only be used for something really atrocious. Blatant hate speech or threatening or stalking.

How do you generally react to a thread/post that annoys you?
If the entire thread annoys you, there's not much you can say -- clearly others are enjoying themselves and you are in the minority, so I just avoid it. For an annoying post, I am 75% likely to respond in some way, 25% likely to ignore it -- just depends on the situation.

If you could invite five people from public life into MTF, and be certain that they'd join, who would you invite?
Jon Stewart, John Cleese, Chris Rock, Dan Savage, the old guys from the Muppet Show

Tennis

Who are your favourite players, and why?
Roger Federer is my favourite player. I like how he plays the game and how he conducts himself on and off court. I also like Djokovic, Ferrer and Raonic.

How closely do you follow the ATP tour, and what would you say your tennis knowledge level is?
I watch as much tennis as I can! I've been watching tennis since I was a little kid in the 80s! But only 3 or 4 tournaments a year, as I didn't even know about internet livestreams until 2008 () so before that it was limited to slams and a few Masters 1000s, since there wasn't much TV coverage in Canada. Even though I've been watching for a long time, I'm not really good at analyzing nor am I a stats whiz.

What's your favourite slam, and why?
Wimbledon, because there is so much formality and ceremony around it; you couldn't mistake it for just another tournament. And now no more rain delays!

Do you think the concept of the Big 4 is entirely justified and what do you think about their place in history and legacy?
No, there's no "big 4" -- it's just a marketing gimmick. As to legacy, see my sig

Which player is, in your opinion, hugely underrated?
David Ferrer

Name three things about the tour that you'd like to see fixed.
Roof at the US Open
No more requirement to play four 500s
Enforce the rules regarding taking too long between points


Do you have any matchups that you watch purposely for the bad tennis?
Say what? ...no.

Personality

Describe yourself in three words.
Honest, articulate, loyal

Describe your mornings in three words.
(don't like mornings )

Name at least three things in your life that you love equally as much as tennis.
Coffee, kitty cats and hugs

What kind of music do you like, and how much does it mean to you?
I enjoy various types of music including rock, alt-rock, pop, dance, Latin, jazz and classical. I only really don't like American country music.

What are your five favourite movies?
Pulp Fiction, The Usual Suspects, The Party, A History Of Violence, E.T.

Favourite things from your childhood?
Kalemegdan Park in Belgrade (Serbia) where my grandfather took me almost every day. Especially that cool carousel with all the cars and airplanes -- do they still have that?

If you had a free afternoon in a big city, where would you spend it;
a)the park,
b)modern bars, checking out the people,
c)dingy bars, getting dead drunk,
d)museum,
e)cinema,
f)whatever sports event you can find on short notice,
g)the mall/city centre/shopping,
h)something else - describe.
Weather permitting, I'd like to ride my bike around and then maybe get to a street festival where there's live music and performers on street corners, just easygoing casual stuff like that. If it's winter then I'll take that live music indoors, please or maybe a gallery.

Default Re: PopCon 2011 Interview Thread

PopCon

What do you think the PopCon is about?
A popularity contest for people that you genuinely like, at least in theory.

In your opinion, what's the difference between the ACC and the PopCon?
The ACC is for tards and clowns and trolls and stupid posters. The PopCon...is not.

If you win, as the reigning people's champion, what do you intend to do during your ruling year?
Ban Noletards.

If you don't win, how do you plan to passively guilttrip the winner throughout the year?


Do you think there should be some joint activity for the four MTF champions, and what do you propose?
They should make a small donation to MTF to reward the forum that recognised their online worth.

Predict this year's winner.
No idea.

Name someone who you'd like to see win, but don't think has a chance.
GOAT = Fed as it would be hilarious. And he didn't win the ACC.

MTF

A mod genie appears to you, and you have three instant MTF wishes. What do you ask for?
1. Full list of my reps
2. Bigger avatar
3. A full and complete list of undisputed trolls and tards.

What do you like doing on MTF most?
Talking about tennis. In second place would be reading interesting threads in the Non-Tennis forum (e.g. the abortion thread and the religion thread).

How would you compare the four MTF contests(ACC, PopCon, MsMTF, MrMTF) with the four slams?
I've only recently been more active here so I don't know what the other two are about. They don't sound too promising.

Do you play TT, and what are your career highlights?
What's this?

Do you agree with the permaban policy? (= should any member be permabanned, ever)
Generally, no. Some banned trolls provide entertainment in this forum. A policy should exist, but it should only be applied in the most extreme of circumstances.

How do you generally react to a thread/post that annoys you?
Try to laugh it off; respond to the posts and point out how stupid the OP is; if it really annoys me, I ignore it.

If you could invite five people from public life into MTF, and be certain that they'd join, who would you invite?
1. Wilander - MTF can never have too many trolls
2. Roger so that I can communicate with him
3. Novak - I think he'd be funny here
4. Martin Amis - English writer who loves tennis. It would be entertaining to read his posts
5. Ivo Karlovic - He's HILARIOUS.

Tennis

Who are your favourite players, and why?
Roger Federer - he's the reason I started watching tennis and fell in love with tennis. He's so graceful and elegant - watching him play tennis is really one of the greatest privileges in life. I love the way he conducts himself on court with dignity and respect for the sport and his opponent.

I also like David Nalbandian because of his brilliant shot-making and delicious backhand; Novak because he's quite an all-court player; Lu Yen-Hsun because he's Taiwanese; Petra Kvitova because she's a rare attacking player on the women's tour; Maria Sharapova because she's exciting to watch and because of her mental toughness; and Maria Kirilenko because she's hot.

How closely do you follow the ATP tour, and what would you say your tennis knowledge level is?
I follow it reasonably closely. I watch it whenever I can - all the slams, most of the Masters, whatever 500 and 250 I can get on TV. My tennis knowledge is quite decent but definitely can be improved.

What's your favourite slam, and why?
I hate to say this, but it's the US Open because the 2008 edition was the first tournament that I ever watched the full and it brings back great memories for me.

Do you think the concept of the Big 4 is entirely justified and what do you think about their place in history and legacy?
There's really no big 4. Murray can't be considered in the same thought as Roger, Nole and Nadal if he's never even won a set in a slam final, let alone a slam. Roger's legacy speaks for itself and Nadal has pretty cemented his placae in history too. Nole's getting there. Murray...we'll see what happens, if he actually wins a slam.

Which player is, in your opinion, hugely underrated?
Ferrer or Baghdatis.

Name three things about the tour that you'd like to see fixed.
1. PENALISE PLAYERS WHO ABUSE THE RULES ESPECIALLY AMOUNT OF TIME TAKEN BETWEEN SERVES AND THE MTO.
2. Stop the homogenisation of surfaces. It's a travesty.
3. Best of 5 sets finals in Masters and WTF.

Do you have any matchups that you watch purposely for the bad tennis?
Not really. If the tennis is bad, I don't waste my time watching.

Personality

Describe yourself in three words.
Loyal, lazy, single-minded.

Describe your mornings in three words.
I need coffee.

Name at least three things in your life that you love equally as much as tennis.
Nothing. 3 things that I love MORE than tennis: my family, my boyfriend, and literature/writing.

What kind of music do you like, and how much does it mean to you?
Rock/alternative, Romantic. Music isn't a huge part of my life, to be honest. My favourite band is Stereophonics and I tend to be more partial to Britpop. Because I'm an Anglophile.

What are your five favourite movies?
1. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
2. Chungking Express
3. The Dark Knight
4. Rebel Without a Cause
5. Quills

Favourite things from your childhood?
I grew up in Taipei and I loved Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall.

If you had a free afternoon in a big city, where would you spend it;
a)the park,
b)modern bars, checking out the people,
c)dingy bars, getting dead drunk,
d)museum,
e)cinema,
f)whatever sports event you can find on short notice,
g)the mall/city centre/shopping,
h)something else - describe.

At a cafe with good coffee and a good book. I loooooooove coffee. I can't wait to hang around cafes and drink good coffee when I attend the Australian Open next year.
