Found that pretty odd but funny. So is the city you live in one of those places that's pretty much all one religion and if you declare yourself otherwise or have certain activities they don't approve of, you are considered a heathen or devil-worshipper? Things like that really bug me, but even being in the conservative, bible-belt midwest it's not so bad and there is still a plethora of diversity of beliefs and interests.

I am definitely a mod. Plus if we're going to clutter up the Answerman thread with stuff like this, we may as well move it. People seem to be enjoying it, anyway.

Just to clear up any misconceptions from anyone an admin can do anything a mod can do and more. The admin are the banners, not the mods. So even though Sake and Dan may not act as moderators they have the power to do so, and I guess probably did before Nagisa and Tony joined as mods. That last part is just a guess though. The admin here are, from what I have gathered, the movers and pushers at ANN. They're part of the actual paid staff and usually are too busy to mod, hence why we have moderators to simply do that specific job. I hope that helps anyone with questions on the matter.

oh and Kolibri, one of my 2 best friend is from Finland. So I actually know where the country is lol. I would come over as a kid and always here his parents speaking Finnish and wonder what they were saying about me lol.

Updated with more detail seeing as how yesturday I was too sleepy.

Name: LuckySleven would be fine.

Sex: Male

Location: Anywhere

Marital Status: For now Single

Age: 16

Religion: I don’t have one and yet I go to a Catholic School. Oh well let’s stick with Haruhiism

Drink/Smoking: My vital organs are my best friends. Though I have drank wine before and the only smoking I get to do is second-hand if you know what I mean.

Likes (besides anime/manga): Drawing (one of my noticeable aspects), Gambling (I like to make a lot of bets but at times my luck seems to run out on me to be with a better and more handsome person), going to the library (yes I like to go to that very quiet place with all those books of vast knowledge, I mostly stick around the forensic science area), walking (yes God gave me legs so I use them how ever I can to please myself; not only is it good exercise but the views you get to see can sometime be interesting), decorating rooms (Yes I like to do such things even if it’s not my room)

Dislikes: Normal people (What’s the point of living a normal life when you can live an abnormal one? All my friends are weird, I’m weird, and you should be too), Narcissistic People (I really hate people who are too infatuated with themselves to realize that there is a world out there beyond their own)

Favorite anime: For now I’m going with Death Note. Why Death Note? Death Note has one of the most original plotlines I ever seen. Basically to me, it’s genius~!

Favorite manga: Fruit Basket, just really love the story of it all.

Favorite game: Dance Dance Revolution (Yes, that game where you have to step on those four panels with the arrows on them), Initial D (Yes that arcade driving game)

Favorite Food: Has to be Phở

Favorite Drink: Old fashion coke

Favorite Sport: Tennis, badminton (back in the days they used to call me the Prince of Badminton Wink )

Favorite Music: R&B, Rock, J-Rock, and any thing that really has good vocals in it.

Fun Facts about LuckySleven: I had my own art exhibition at age 14 at the Living Arts Centre. In the future I’m aiming to be a full time staff surgeon then try to become the Head of the Department. I like acting in front of an audience or camera. I try to design my own cloths. I think that’s it for now.

I'll post a picture when my friend pays be back; never going to stand near her at Niagra Falls ever again Anime hyper"

Bamboo had been acting as a moderator actively for quite some time. Dan rarely steps in unless there's no admin available (e.g. all at a con) and something technical and/or urgent happens (such as a swarm of spambot).

Name: Sean Patrick Michael Francis Tugwell (yes that really is it, see religion for explanation)
Religion: Roman Catholic (I'm confirmed hence the long name...it's a catholic thing)


What, exactly, are the occasions for the extra naming? I've never really quite understood.


Sorry just noticed this question. Alright, in the Roman Catholic church you go through this process called confirmation. In the church this is the process for becoming an adult in the eyes of the church. You take some sunday school type classes, take a test (yes they test your knowledge on your faith), and then there's a special mass usually lead by a Bishop and not just a normal priest. Part of the process is you take another name. Generally it's preferred if you use a saint or other holy figure. I was born Sean Patrick Tugwell and I actually took 2 names at my confirmation. This is rare and actually has to be approved by a Bishop or Cardinal to be allowed. Mine was. I'm Irish so of course my father gave me Patrick, as in Saint Patrick the patron saint of Ireland, as my middle name. I took Michael in reference to the Arch Angel Michael, protector and guardian of heaven. Also the patron saint of police. Francis refers to Saint Francis of Assisi (spelling?) who was loved by animals and one with nature. So hence I am now Sean Patrick Michael Francis Tugwell. Can't get a much more Irish name then that let me tell you. If I had been a girl I would've been name Erin Bridget Tugwell. Saint Bridget is the other big Irish saint. This concludes our Catholic study lesson for the day.

I've never actually seen her step in the mod shoes so to speak. No discredit to her, I know she's busy as a full time columnist and article writer. I knew she could at any time since she is an admin, I just have never seen her do it as best as I can remember.

1. She is not a full-time columnist. Both she and I are biologists.

2. You just have not been here long enough.

Wow, someone actually knew what I was talking about lol. I'm amazed, even with people that are familiar with the Catholic religion when I mention his name I usually get blank stares.

Thanks for the info dormcat. (seriously thanks Very Happy )

Before I get too OT I have noticed a trend starting I wanted to comment on. This is by no means an insult to anyone but I'm noticing the majority of people so far don't smoke or drink or even want to if they're not of age yet. I've also noticed many people for their favorite food like chicken. Where's the beef or lamb lovers?!

I've noticed a lot of anime fans tend to be non-smokers. Can't say much about drinking since I think most of the people I drink with are my friends who are also anime fans.
