The PSX-Scene Moderator Team
The mods do a ton of stuff around the PSX-Scene forums so we wanted to let you know a little about who they are. Here is a list in alphabetical order of the mod team.
I'm Damanptyltd. I have been in the PS3 scene since the beginning, landing my first moderator role back on psgroove.com for my peace making attributes (and the fact that i was home ridden for a few weeks due to a work injury). I am a generally kind and tolerating moderator, who will use words where a hammer would have sufficed for most mods, though i don't hesitate when the hammer beckons. I am a full time student, doing labour cash jobs to keep me afloat. Family comes first for me, so if i'm not around it may be because i am attending my baby sister, or my just as childish older sister.
I have base knowledge of coding syntax, and digital electronics (logic gates and components), and love to employ that knowledge in minecraft. I had 2 Ps3s, both YLOD due to being old PS2 compatible 60GBs. I moderate the forums whenever i have a spare second (if i come across something in my daily normal forum browsing), and was previously managing some small projects for the site. I also write news when the front page is looking dry, which isn't too often thanks to my awesome fellow writers, the 3Ts. End of the day I take things fairly easy (lest seriousness is required) and is willing to just chat things out.
I like to squeeze the most function and use out of anything I acquire and would rather fix than replace. To get better function, I mod.
My motto: The word "impossible" often expresses opinion, not fact. I can change your opinion from "impossible" to "not-worth-doing". "Not-worth-doing" also expresses opinion ;-)
My favorite game: Red Baron arcade game
Currently Playing: No free time to play games, waiting for the next good COOP game along the lines of Champion's Of Norrath
Modding Experience: I never had a game console until the PS2. I took apart my girlfriend's PS2 to swap disk to get ULE to boot near the end of 2005. I'm not a dev, not into hardware mods, just softmods. I wanted internet radio and slideshow on my TV and wanted both to work at the same time. PS2-Linux and quite a bit of compiling, code changes, and tweaking got me what native homebrew did not. New HDTVs do similar things now; none do them as well as my PS2 setup in my opinion. Yeah, a PC would have been easier, but where's the fun in that?
Big hope for PS2 Homebrew - DMA-improved network stack (homebrew and PS2-Linux drivers). Beyond my capabilities but double-speed network would relight the fires of PS2 Homebrew.
