I decided to interview the legendary Susan who holds the record for the highest post count on the forum.
1. How did you get started in the Fallout community?
Actually, I'm not sure I remember correctly, but I think it's like a lot of the dumb new people you see around modernDAC; they were candidly naive and tried asking help or something either on NMA or the Codex and they got laughed of and abused; soon enough they can't support humanity's hypocrisy and snobbism, and have no choice but to turn the interweb’s darker, sinful side; DAC.
2. Explain why you are called Susan?
i think it has something to do with spazmo saying I love chocobos because I’m a Final Fantasy fan and it somehow turned into him calling me susan on #fallout, but in fact it’s because we’re from the same borough and I’m cooler so he’s jealous. He also used to discriminate my usage of and had a script so I’d get banned automatically if I typed D:
3. You are well known for having the highest post count at DAC, how did you accomplish this and was it a goal?
I started working at that place in 2004 where I was sitting at a desk with a computer all day, with practically nobody watching me. DAC was quite active at that time and I always clicked “View posts since last visist” and I just had to reply to them all. So basically for a while I probably posted as much as all other members together. It was never a goal, except for reaching 10,000 posts.
4. Describe some of your favorite memories at DAC.
Hard to say.
The attack organized by Toxic on the Codex was kungfu. Reaching 10,000 posts. subhuman coming out of the closet. making fun of johnpnp. A long time ago when goatse and that asian girl shitting in her face were funny.
5. What did you like most about the original Fallout games?
You could replay them forever. Also, the graphix
6. What did you think of FO3, if you didn't play it then why not?
I did try it; I got to Megaton and for some reason I tried killing everyone. And succeeded. I think a robot killed me once I got out though.
But something else bugged me : this guy at the beginning wanted me to blow up Megaton for like 100 bottle caps. I wasn’t too sure about it so I went to the bar to help think, where a prostitute wanted me to hump her for 120 bottle caps. What?
7. What games are you currently playing and what games are you looking forward to in the future?
I’ve been playing on and off Dragon Age. It’s quite fun. You can play a dwarven girl and sleep with a woman I think. I’m also looking forward to Dante’s Inferno; I tried the demo and it looks God of War-like fun. If anyone played it tell me if it sucks.
Civilization 4 is a good time killer.
And I’m thinking of replaying Shining Force 2 on my Genesis emulator.
8. What you think of DAC compared to other sites like NMA and RPGcodex?
Ha, the first answer summed it up. They’re just boring because you have to behave like in real life, sort of. Think, write logic sentences et al.
9. What other communities are you active in or were active in besides Fallout?
Back in 2002 and up to like 2005 I was posting on an anarcho-communist forum Remember my avatar?
10. How have you liked the past community interviews?
11. What do you see for the future of DAC?
It’s probably gonna stay around for a while; I don’t see why anybody would suddenly stop posting. I mean we’ve been saying DAC would die for like 4 years, and since then people have left, but most came back and still post.
Though the moderation has been sucking for a while, and it’s making the forum a bit boring. No NSFW stuff, then no NTSFW stuff even in the Wasteland and then no Wasteland, and all that kind of chit.
