Last week (http://forums.smitegame.com/showthread.php?60952-Ask-the-Forum-Staff-Week-1) seemed a hit, so here's week 2.

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).

I've always liked pick-up trucks. Dunno why, but I'd be down for owning one. Either that, or a Mustang.

^the new Honda NSX... probly will change to the new Nissan GT-R once they give more info about it tho :D

If we are gonna talk about realistic cars, it would be between a V6 2.5L Mitsubishi Galant (http://motoburg.com/images/mitsubishi-galant-24-v6-01.jpg) or a Honda Accord Type-R (http://static.autojunk.nl/pictures/2014/1106/062134/image_01.jpg) (I have the non Type-R version of it :().

Univercity/school gym aside, I haven't stepped inside of an actual gym even once in my entire life. That aside, I do go hiking most days and I do pushups/wight training after my matches depending on my performance :D. I do skip both time to time, so I need to fix that. My "job" also requires a bit of heavy lifting from time to time. Really wanted to get into HEMA (Historic European Martial Arts... pretty much like LARP, without any of the bullshit) but there isn't a club/place to practice in my home town.

i have technical question. if we have infraction warning etc do we look them up from somewhere or do they come to inbox?

also do you think moderation is difficult or boring or cool or what what are its bad sides? what is your relationship with this moderation thing. when you want to whine about it where do you whine?

You will receive a PM if you get a warning or an infraction. As for your second question, it's difficult at times, but mainly time consuming. I also wouldn't say it's boring, mainly because I can see how it improves the experience for the vast majority of users.

When I want to rage, I rage in the moderation Google chat. That shit doesn't need be public.

Bad sides of moderation are when there is no reports. 90% of the time, the lack of reports means that moderators checking through threads sometimes miss obvious things. Reporting threads or posts gives us a base to look at, so we can scan through the thread more reliably.

i didnt know. I was never doing the reporting. I did it only once or maybe twice when i was really angry with a post.It can be a more specific/technical thing,too of course. I see now.

Correct - we're only human, we can't read everything. If you see something that you think should be brought to the attention of the moderators, please click the report button :). The person reported doesn't know they've been reported, nor does it come back to you.

Pretty much what Alex said. I personally consider moderation as more of a hobby and not as an obligation.

Never really got into a situation where I needed to whine about the forum (at least as of now), but for that there is our top secret chat :D

Moderating really is dependent. For me it'll be good, fun, or bad days.

It's only bad when I have to straighten up a lot of you whipper snappers by reminding some of yah of my CoC lawn.

Complaint wise, I just do it in the general group chat text thing.

I used to play for a lot more then I am now. Now I play 1 or 2 games every 2 days. At the moment I am enjoying some games that I missed, but will return to Smite soon.

I do wish to start/join a serious team for the future, but I don't think I have the patience and time to go pro.

I play anywhere from 3 - 20+ hours. It differs quite a lot depending how much work I have on that week. As for competitive team, I've never really considered it tbh. I prefer to do production side of stuff than competitive.

I play less than I used to. I might get 5 ~ 10 hours in a week. As far as competitive goes, I've never found anyone I actually wanted to compete with, so No.

Used to play a lot, but working on some projects and playing other games atm.

If I wanted to go competitive then I would do it in the Philippines. I would want to sponsor a team for Smite there if they get some Philippine servers or Pacific Asian servers up and running.

I'll play about 5 games a day on weekdays, and around 10-20 on weekends ._. So probably around 30 hours a week ._. Having no extracurricular commitments is fun :D

I wouldn't say moderating the forums is boring, but I will say it does take some time out of the day. If I have something to whine about I usually bother Kaostic.

I play between 5 and 30 hours a week, just depends how busy I am with work and that Real life RPG. As for getting into the esports scene, last year I was asked if I wanted to, and my answer was that if I didn't love my job I would totally get into it, but I enjoy my job too much to leave it.

Step 1: Roll up your shirt sleeve.
Step 2: Whip out your camera.
Step 3: Take a picture of your manly guns.
