Hi all - we've decided to give you a place to ask all your questions to the forum staff (moderators, gurus, guides, etc.) each week.

Please, keep these clean, and we will remove any that are just flat out rude, or breach the Forum's Code of Conduct (http://forums.smitegame.com/showthread.php?5758-Forums-Code-of-Conduct) (e.g. asking about bans).

So, have at it, internet.

Are all forum staff volunteers? Do any of you get paid?

How much of the forum feedback do staff directly employed by Hi-Rez get to see, what's the process of passing on good quality feedback from the forum to staff who can then make changes to the actual game?

How did you get the position you have now on the forum team?

All volunteer. Unless there's HiRez infront of their name (and lilmamacita, who didn't change her name..)

Can't really say a number, but Stew has informed me that he keeps an eye on the God and Skin concepts, as well as the feedback sections. The Bug reports are monitored by QA heavily.

I don't drink, beer and wine taste like liquid medicine. If I had to say then Rum with coke.

After that, it's Vodka, Whiskey, Brandy, Rum...hmm...maybe I should stop the list already.

Judging by the replies: Boy did you ask the wrong crowd!

Despite my regular jokes regarding "american dish water", I don't even like beer. To me it tastes like cat piss smells. I might be broken. Given that beer is one of the most popular drinks in history, roughly everywhere in the world, I just assume it's me.

I'll have a Coke. Or Pepsi.

I do alot of craft beer (I have to, since I'm the one ordering it at my store), here's a few of my favorites.

Hofbrau Original
Bells Amber Ale
Great Divide Oatmeal Yeti
Old Rasputin Imperial Stout
Weienstephener Hefeweisebeir
La Fin Du Monde Tripple
Pliny The Elder IPA
Stones Best By ** DIPA


How did you get the position you have now on the forum team?

I applied twice, the second time got me in.

American Light Beers are fairly revolting. There's a reason they're rated 40 ~ 60 out of 100 on every craft beer site, and generally despised.

I would recommend you go try a few craft beers next time you hit a bar or go out to eat. Stay away from the IPA's and Pale Ales though, unless you enjoy stuff like grapefruit.

Quick rundown on the more common beers and what kind of tastes to expect (All beers are made from Water, Yeast, Malt, and Hops)

Stouts - Black Coffee, Dark Chocolate, Slightly Bitter (Try a cream stout like LeftHand Milk Stout Nitro)
Pilsners - Very light, malty, and light on the hops. A "summer" beer. (Lagunitas Pils is outstanding)
Hefeweizens - Citrus, sometimes venturing into banana. Very light, very low hop. (Weihenstephener)
Amber Ales - Very Malty, sometimes venturing on the tinny side (Try to find bells Amber)
Any German Beers - German Beers follow the Purity act, and are almost all high quality. Hofbrau is one of my favorites

Don't get anything that's commercialized, they all taste terrible (Budweiser, Heineken, Miller, Busch, anything "Lite" ETC ETC)



(I am quite literally a boozeologist. I work in a liquor store, and Know the taste of most every bottle in my store. That's why I know so much lol)

I wouldn't disagree, American beer is garbage compared to other countries. I'm more of a Whiskey drinker.

As for the other questions:

Favorite game mode is league conq atm (slowly heading towards masters) I don't have a favorite god/role.

Favorite book series is A song of Ice and Fire (Don't worry, I won't spoil)

And I would if I could, but sadly there is no snow where I live (Bay Area of California).

And I do have a dog, he's a pit bull/lab mix. Can post a pic if you guys want.

The 15 rep was given before moderators were able to ban; we circumvented that by using the rep system, and spam downvoting said user. 15 was a compromise between giving moderators too much rep tower, and having to click downvote too many times. It was clunky and terrible. (By the way, that doesn't work any more, and I don't even think you can even downvote.)

Trip through Europe sounds like the best out of the three.

I was wondering how to start a thread, or if there is a good place to share ideas for the game.

I am new to the forums but i have an idea for this great skin.

Skin idea: Thanatoast

Thanatos in this skin is more human like in his features, and instead of holding a scythe, is holding a giant butter knife. Also instead of armor is dressed ready to make breakfast wearing an apron that says "I<3 toast".

For his moveset, his sycthe throw turns into than throwing out a giant pat of butter rotating as the sythe would going through the air.
Instead of glowing for his 2 move the stains from his poor cooking habits show up on his clothes.
3 move just changes from scythe to butter knife.
Ult when he flies up he is in a toaster in the sky, shoots down to the ground as a literal piece of toast.

Please listen hirez, the community needs you to make this happen

My question is if there is a way for the staff to mark special threads that might be interesting for HiRez emplyoees.

As a german I have to answer the beer question:
Never get fooled by that bavarian stuff. Everything that is called Weißbier, Weizen or Hefe is not a real beer.
It's sweeter, contains less alcohol but gives you a bigger headache than normal Pilsner or Export.
This is why Bavarians have those huge beerglasses.

Right, so first of all, it's doughnuts. :D

Second of all, any doughnut with a hole in the middle is not a true doughnut. The problem with doughnuts is that the inside does not cook as well as the outside. The solution to this is to fill the inside with jam or custard; it is NOT to cut a big hole in the middle.

Any meat... I am pretty much a carnivore. I do balance it with some healthy stuff tho. For desert, I'd say furmi (http://v1.credoweb.net/images/HealthArticle/article_16244_thema53.jpg)(no idea how they translate in english). Love them!

As a german I have to answer the beer question:
Never get fooled by that bavarian stuff. Everything that is called Weißbier, Weizen or Hefe is not a real beer.
It's sweeter, contains less alcohol but gives you a bigger headache than normal Pilsner or Export.
This is why Bavarians have those huge beerglasses.

I think the craft beer scene would disagree with you pretty hard.

http://www.beeradvocate.com/beer/style/

Just because it's brewed differently doesn't make it any less of a beer. That's like saying Dubbels/Tripels/Quads aren't real beer because they're not Pilsners (Pilsners didn't even originate in Germany btw, they originated in the Czech Republic, Specifically with Pilsner Urquell) ;]) or Bocks... it's just flat out ignorance there :/

Hefe means "Live Yeast", Weizen means it was made from Wheat. It's a respectable style of beer. A Dunkelweizen is a darker version of a hefeweizen, instead of roasting the barley lightly, they roast it longer to make it darker.

If you could be anyone for a day, who would it be and why?

We have secret meetings every day. In the shadows, where we plan our nefarious schemes while wringing our hands together and cackling softly. For example, who we're going to ban today from the forum lotto! (We use random.org and input however many people happen to be registered, then we banhammer the number picked! Your number might be next, a happy day new friend!). Todays lucky number is 24282!

We also discuss how we're going to be detrimental to the community in general, it's an ongoing experiment to see how long you guys can put up with the punishment. It's quite fascinating.

But yea, in all seriousness We use an IM to do live chat and discuss things when we need to discuss them. We don't do meetings, we just toss up a few words in chat or PM Kaos/Dman.

As for who I'd love to be for a few days? I would be Harlen Wheatley.

Since I'm addicted to reading this Japanese Light Novel, "Mushoku Tensei." I'll ask my colleagues on their favorite reading material.

So far I've delved into Japanese literature and found a good lot of favorites: Overlord, Knights and Magic, Re:Monster, Mushoku Tensei, and Jashin Tensei (Evil God's Reincarnated Demon Army).

Also some manga as well mostly romance, slice of life, drama, seinen, etc.

Being brutal honest? Most of the feedback about matchmaking, gods, and items are from the mouths of ignorant newbies who have no idea how to play. These posts serve NO purpose except as a breeding ground for crying, whining, and general... bleh.

That isn't to say all posts are like this. I love finding that rare gem where someone actually takes the time to make constructive feedback with real thought behind it... But that's one in every hundred threads... if I'm lucky.

http://i.imgur.com/cNsgWFD.gif

I've been around for a very long time and have seen good feedback, and bad feedback. Typically the worst feedback happens within the week after a god gets released. Why? Because no one knows how to play/counter the new god. So they just say NERF PLOX or OHEHMGHEE THIS GOD IS SO BAD PLZ BUFF.

Also, I've noticed that HR doesn't go for the middle ground at first, so when they buff a god, they buff them, same with the nerfs.

And, I also have noticed that when the majority of the community have absolutely no idea how to play a god/are terrible with them, they'll scream for buffs (looking at you Thanatos), and HR will pretty much just remove all the skill required to play that god.
