    Default Describe The Person Above You (Read OP)

    Write a short description of the person above you.

    Personally I've never felt this thread belonged in the Coliseum, and since I'm moderating here now, we're going to give this a shot here in the Thema Devia instead.
    It previously had 777 pages and more than 15.000 posts here in the Thema Devia before being moved to the Coliseum due to rule breaks. I hope we can keep it here this time.

    The former Coliseum Describe thread

    Thread Rules No "personal" insulting messages (e.g. stinking Scandinavian swine).
    No short messages like "sucks", "blows", "Danish", "American" and so on and so forth.
    No posts consisting solely of images.
    At least two people must have posted between you and your next post.




    Try to the best of your ability to avoid simple one or two liners. Remember that good descriptions fosters subsequent good descriptions.


    ToS
    8.Insulting Others (3 or 6 points)

    Posts clearly insulting other board members, individually or as a group, directly or indirectly, are not allowed. This includes, but is not limited to:

    ■Name-calling ("You're an idiot", "You moron")
    ■Direct insults ("Screw you")
    ■Offensive orders ("Go kill yourself")
    ■Using threatening, harassing, defamatory, hate-speech, or libelous language
    ■Using race, religion, sexual orientation, culture, ethnicity, handicap, nationality, or gender as a means of insult, either directly or implied
    ■Insinuations ("Are you stupid or something?") or insults towards family ("Your mom...")


    Make no mistake, this thread is on parole. Fail to follow the rules and it will go away. Don't fail me.

    Ok, have fun.

    Pasan I a long serving member of TWC who I have often sighted in many a different areas throughout the site, but most often I see him in the more serious sections engaged in debates where he handles himself with skill and intelligence. I don't know him well but he seems quite nice and helpful and stays true to the fox centered persona he has created. He seems to be held in high regard by many and be friends with nearly all the forum veterans.

    It is a gift, a gift to the foes of boredor...

    Rijul is one of those, the guys on the other side of the GAC, the Colosians. What brings him here? Maybe as far as his beliefs are concerned, this sudden transplant of a thread from the Coliseum to the Devia is an affront and an outrage...but no, that would be taking things a bit far. To the random observer, Rijul seems to be a tolerant and reasonable individual. His curiosity towards Socialist theory, however, have brought him under the 'influence' of the outspoken Lenin Cat and his shadowy coterie of associates...however there is more to this than meets the eye, for Rijul has already pledged himself to the Avian creed. His enmeshment with many of the ideologies of the Underhive make him a subject of interest, but his lack of presence on the southern side of the GAC negate this. Fortunate, because if that wasn't the case the birds would be too strong, their racist doctrine growing ever more powerful as it tramples over us all...

    Perhaps, just as he is finally leaving behind his A.T. field in the real world, Rijul will become less of a secret to us, too.

    Inkie Pie is considered the Great Cardinal of "Describe the person above you", being one of the game's introductors to TWC and defending it, in difficult times, when peope used to call each other a Nazi.
    Having registered 4 years ago, he is notorious for his art, writing and strongly anti-brony stance. Unfortunately, he was later manipulated by a fanatic bronist (who's reported to hijack innocent signatures), so he was proselytized to the Dogma of the Fanatic Ponies.
    Apart from his bronish activities, I don't know much about him, except for the fact that he likes patronizing people. Inquisitor Derpy Hooves has already been patronized by him, while Sir Adrian waits (or is his application currently examined by the Order of Austerity?) for the right moment to exploit Inkie Pie's proposal.
    In real life, he is a rather dark-skinned Englishman (except if he has stolen the photos from a poor immigrant; these bronies are really merciless), who could make Nick Griffin doubt about his theories concerning Anglosaxonic whiteness, usually accompanied (Inkie Pie, not Nick Griffin) by the aforemtnioned hijacker and manipulator, also rather dark-skinned for a Spaniard (I suspect a conspiracy...)!
    The good think is that he stays in France, so we can hope that, in a few years, he will have been assimilated to "Culture of the Superhumans", adopting all the French, beneficial principles and abandoning his barbaric, Anglosaxon roots.
    A man can only hope...

    the new username is one of the most notorious members of this part of TWC. With at times disturbing avatars and weird sigs he was seen a lot in the Coliseum, where he ensured that not a day would be boring. Due to many conflicts with moderation he spent almost as much time on suspension as actually active and unvoluntarily made the Tribunal his second home. These days he has improved his style and keeps his distance from moderation which has led to his liberation from the much hated probation. Hopefully he will stay on the right path this time.

    edit: bleh, ninja'd very hard.
    I don't know an awful lot of Boboshaw, only that his name is something in mandarin. The Chinese stuff comes forward a lot in him as his sig contains many Chinese characters. I've mainly seen him here, were he can be considered an irregular regular or something like that.

    Although lolsuck joined TWC almost three years a go , I still sort of consider him the new fresh Thema Devia product .It's sort of hard to miss he's posts because of the silly avatar , unique name and the huge amount of rep (DUH!) . He visits pretty much everywhere except topics about actual total war games though I probably see him in some mtw2 mod sections .
    Basically he's posts are not a chore to read , good spirited,have some interesting info and occasionally funny .To me He represents the average nice guy forum member who's post you should not skip over .


    Oh and I find his signature rather boring .

    The Vitiated Mind, where do I begin! He simply has one of the best avatars on TWC, for a couple reasons. One, it shows one of my favorite movie characters - Randal - from the Clerks films. Every time the Vitiated Mind makes a post, I can't get the voice of Randal out of my head when reading it, which the Vitiated Mind has told me is one of the many perks he enjoys.

    You can always count on the Vitiated Mind to make a thoughtful post, a reasoned argument, and to be an all around forum dude. He's the kind of guy you'd want a beer with, if not take your daughter home. He's certainly the type of guy I'd enjoy watching cheesy movies with while verbally trashing them for fun. And last but not least, you have to appreciate his witty nick he chose for himself. It really stands out among the rest, you know, those generic names anyone could think of like "roma victrix."

    All hail The Vitiated Mind! I only hope one day we can crack open a beer together and provide him with an inebriated mind, too.

    EDIT: GASP! MOTHER OF GOD! After years, and years, and perhaps even more years, The Vitiated Mind has just now changed his avatar, today! Thus nullifying my argument and the goodwill I held! What have you done, Vitiated Mind, what have you done?

    Although Roma_Victrix appears to have joined the site back in 2010, I believe his presence here became more prominent only in the past year or so, that unless he used to post under a different name. A regular of the Arts and TD sections, he is well-known for creating some of the most original and weirdest intriguing threads around. He certainly puts a lot of thought into his threads, that's for sure. Roma_Victrix has always come off as a knowledgeable user, especially in the Arts section. All in all, he's a great poster and for a measly bribe of ten rep points I might even consider nominating him for a couple of Site Awards categories.

    I don`t know Maximinus Thrax, I think that I have only spoken to him once on the Thema Devia.
    What I do know though is that he occupies the prominent positions of Citizen and Content Staff and he has been on this site since 2009. During his TWC career he has achieved prestige in art and more notably writing.
    From what I understand about the man he has designed much of the badges and graphics here on TWC and more recently he was involved in the Rome 2 redesign of the Total War Center. He has been involved in the Medieval 2 mod Broken Crescent which won great acclaim in the history of Medieval 2 and of the site.
    I hope to perhaps learn more about Maximinus Thrax, both the site member and the site artist. But as I may be considered relatively new to the site, I know little of Maximinus Thrax (among other members), the fact that I even know this much about him proves that he has accumulated great fame as a TWC member.

    Goes to the Vestigia Vestutatis and is seen around in TD, more used to the nick "Money" though.
    Knows a ton about history too.

    Y'know. TNU is sort of that sort of mischievous little bugger you can't help to love. He's been around about as long as I have, and I remember he appeared alongside the Mysterious F who is also from Portugal so everyone thought they were alts of each-other. This have been disproved however, rest assured. Like lollypop said above, he's got a very.. interesting moderation record. And many facepalms were had back in the day with TNU "Yay I'm back" and he was banned the next day or the next hour for posting something unseemly in the YLYL.

    He's was the kind of guy that would make this the wallpaper on his profile and this his profile pic (Profile customization was big deal before the new TWC update)


    But now he's all grown up. Ad even lost the shackles of probation, well done there.

    But in honour of who you were before, take this with a good heart.

    Påsan is one of those names you have to copy and paste from his quotes in order to respectfully write his actual name out properly. This is because the second letter in his name is the Nordic å, which I believe is pronounced o as in horn. Ironic, isn't it? Anyway Påsan has been here on TWCenter for nearly half my lifetime. He arrived about six months after Medieval II: Total War's release. I don't know what he did for the first five-and-a-half years here, because it took him until the first days of 2013 to get citizenship. But he is now a moderator and did a term or two on the Consilium de Civitate.

    What I think of him is that he knows what he is talking about and he knows who he is talking to. He successfully associated the new username with a guy that makes Gollum look like he brushes his teeth twice a day in comparison, and that counts for something in my book. Påsan and I have that odd kind of familiarity with each other that we post in the same threads in Thema Devia but we don't really talk to each other as much as one might expect. But still, I think he is a fun fox. He is also the only reason I particularly like foxes since that idiotic YouTube song came out about a man's naive musings of what noise a fox might make. (The catch of the song is he goes through practically every possible noise imagined instead of Googling it, and that's how you make 100,000,000 views on YouTube.)

    The quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog. Each letter of the English alphabet is in that sentence. "Two driven jocks help fax my big quiz" also works but it is less iconic than the first one. Isn't that cool? The quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog.

    Påsan had been around her for longer than I have, joined 3 years prior to me, put probably not very active around these parts until around 2010, posting in all of the chat thread, this thread and the coliseum. All through the near anarchy that reigned at times, except the brief monarchy. Interesting times. But then he got into staff, being a librarian alongside me, and now recently got into the position of moderator in these fora, enforcing the more peaceful and at times mature and boring climate we have here today. He got promoted at the same time as me, not that many months ago. He has then used his new connections, and by that and personally taking responsibility he has relocated this ancient thread to its rightful home.

    He's Norwegian, so obviously a cool guy, as well as the kind that would save TNU's profile pic for himself. (I kinda hope you got it some other way).


    Now Aquila on the other hand is what we call a ninja.
    Ninjas are really really irritating in this thread.

    Besides that, he's a cool and helpful guy. Joined staff he has too, and might have a bright future here at TWC.

    Princess Luna, or Vatterholm as most sane people call him, is one of the site's beloved moderators. He signed up a few months before me and probably hid in the M2TW section where he started mapping. Vatter has become one of the TD regulars over the last few years and could (still can) be seen a lot in the Coliseum and here. He was the first of the new Devians to join the blue legion as a librarian, of which he is now the fierce commander, and has served the staff well, as shown by his emerald quil. No idea why he even needs a quil, let alone one made of gems, they're impractical and a pen is much easier than such an ancient relic. Then again, Vatter fights medieval battles and does viking stuff as a battle reenactor so writing with feathers might just be his thing. His good work as a Librarian and his niceties have earned him citizenship and since a few months he is a part of the Scandinavian plot to take over moderation and invade East Anglia.

    He also fancies animated coloured ponies.

    Just like me, mods has to change his username, because it was too gangster and hardcore for all of us.
    The similarities in TWC crime end here, however. But I know something very may few know: The user lives in Heerlen, Limburg.
    Has been here for a long time and even has an award(nice).
    I think just like me, LolIsuck(I don't though) feels a bit jealous of seeing so many ordinary posters like him go up in the TWC user ladder, but this statement may be a wrong one.

    During my sty in this place, the land of TWC, I have seen but one instance of a TNU. There, above me, he stand; new man in same land.
    But what does he aport? What ways are his? Was it not the ones of old that said:

    Quote Originally Posted by Iota Zeta
    "And if so one is alive as they are in existence; and this same seeketh to live, what is the path that this one must follow? But I say upon to thee: does not all the dough in our coffers apport us the greatest amount of traction vehicles and bling-things? Do these not in turn bring vast amounts of prostitutes to our crib-home? Must we not get the greatest threads with the aforementioned dough? Thus the way of the gangster is the most righteous upon the land."
    And thus TNU took on this way as his holy duty upon us mortals. He came to know many of this world and tried to show them the light, a few followed on in his way. These took on his spam and thus swept through the forums behind him. It was a golden age.

    But we were not ready and, in frightened anger of the unknown, we smote the "one to be named anew". And there was much smiting and much woe and every lucy wept in great sadness. And thus he was goned. And the moderation spoke: let this heathen be gonned for a year and one day, not one day more and not a year less one day; a year and one day shall be the time of gonness.

    And it was so and there was still much sadness.

    But after a year and one day, not before or after, but one year and a day after the event: he returned. The one was in a new and more resplendent form and there was much beauty upon his figure and much sexiness. And from his handsome mouth he spoke: "I have come now those who smote me, but I have re-birthed myself so that you may see the way, for mine is the way -be it through the gangster or not. But lo! Do not come to name me by my previous name, I am of a new calling. I am The New Username. For the gods have appointed me so."

    And there was much rejoicing and much weeping of jubilation. And the TNU was happy.


    So we must remember, that though we may wish to smite him at every moment, TNU only means beauty and good to us and this forum.
    May the Liver bless him and JtIRC caress him for ever.

    Thus is the dharma.

    Joseph Simonyi de Vitézvár, or simply Jo or Joseph, is one of the more active members in the Chat Thread. He is mainly known for his good mornings and good nights that are accompanied by the smilie and is one of the nicest people on the forum, he seems to always be nice and happy. Although relatively new, he has already joined the ranks of gaming and content staff and a bright future seems to lay ahead of him. Even though it's already the end of january Joseph still holds on to his santa smurf with the horrible background. Appearances may lie though as he promised to send me some cake but he still hasn't done so.
