Community Joe Interview - JPeloquin218

For the first ever Community Joe interview we interview JPeloquin218 who shares his love for forging, friends, and men. Totally in the good friendship way though, sicko. [b]Q: So, first off. Who are you and what do you do?[/b] A: I'm Josh, better known as [url=http://www.bungie.net/Account/Profile.aspx?uid=6887266]JPeloquin218[/url] around these parts. I'm 16 years old and I'm currently in Highschool. I'm really involved in Custom Content and if I say so so my self, a pretty knowledgeable and talented forger. I also Administrate one of the largest Custom Content Communities [url=http://www.bungie.net/fanclub/293407/Group/GroupHome.aspx]Forever Forgers.[/url] As you can probably tell, I am really involved in Custom Content, but i am also as involved in the Bungie Community as well. [b]Q: Sounds like you're really into making things. So, what's the story behind that username of your's?[/b] A: My username...meh. Not something I'm proud of really. Just parts of my name put together. But the numbers "218" were something that have always been involved with me in some way. [b]Q: Oh, how mysterious. What does a mysterious guy like you aside from roam Bnet?[/b] A: Being someone who is really interested in Custom Content, I visit sites related to Content such as [url=http://www.forgehub.com/]forgehub.com[/url]. I also check out Halocharts.com to visit a private group there called [url=http://halocharts.com/grouplist.php?id=4984]Satyros.[/url] I don't go off site too much because I have a lot of private groups to also give some attention to. [b]Q: Sounds like you keep yourself busy! What part of gaming do you like then?[/b] A; The fact that I'm good at most of them of course! Lol, seriously though, it is just a nice way to relax from what goes on in life. It keeps be busy and entertained! [b]Q: Who do you win with when you go online?[/b] A: Many kinds of people. Good friends from the Bungie Community that I have come to known and love, and some forgers from all around the Bungie/Halo Community. I have a wide variety of friends. [b]Q: Speaking of Bungie, what was the first Bungie game you picked up and how'd you get into it?[/b] A: The first title I played was Halo 2. Back in '05, I was a 10 year old kind going to my cousin's house. He said he got a new game called "Halo 2". I wanted to play because I heard good things about it. The first thing we played was a 1v1 Custom Game on Lockout. That game introduced me to a whole new meaning of gaming. Halo 2 was a revelation to me. I was amazed by how addicting this game was. Before I knew it, 5 hours had gone by and I went home. I would constantly go over my Cousins house to play Halo 2 with him. And in 2007 when Halo 3 came out, I saved up my money to buy and Xbox 360 along with Halo 3. Ever since then, I have been a loyal Halo fan. [b]Q: Nice, I suppose that's what brought you to Bnet. How do you feel about being active on the site?[/b] A: It's kind of hard to get away from this site. I always have a tab pulled up on my laptop. I have gotten to involved with stuff that it has become a major part of my life. [b]Q: And finally, shout-outs. Who would you like to share some love to?[/b] Of course, to some good friends Sworn Shadow, Elementwrath, Tom T, Godly_Perfection, Homeboyd903, HALO3syourdaddy, Insane54, superduper66, Xx Overkill VR, burritosenior, Paulie Walnuttz, and everyone else on my Friends list. Sorry I cannot list you all. Also a shout-out to all the members in [url=http://www.bungie.net/fanclub/293407/Group/GroupHome.aspx]Forever Forgers.[/url] You guys rock! _______________________________________________________ And that was our interview with Jpeloquin218, what a guy. Thanks to him for making the interview with him possible. Without him we would have never been able to interview him. Stay tuned another time of the next instalment of the Community Joe Interview.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Nz Snipedown Cool stuff. Who'll be the next in line?[/quote] So far we have a thread setup in the Community Joes group with random candidates (all user suggested) and then once every 2 weeks we have a user voting thread between 4 random candidates. The one who is picked gets interviewed and the others get put back into the hat.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Clone Outcast I've tried to get a hold of staff on at least 2 occasions and I've tried to ask members of the moderation team. I got no reply from staff but the mod who did reply to me said that he thinks a thread like this [i]should[/i] be ok. [/quote]I'm locking this thread because you didn't ask me. Also, <3 Community stuff

  • We have a system, see we put the applicants in a line. Then we give them 777 lashes to see who is manlier. The manliest man continues on to the next round.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] xReconAssassinX It's cool you're trying to bring this back, but to me, it'll never be the same without Bungie... I really hope Bungie sees how committed we are to these Interviews, and they'll decide to start posting them again. Seems like they stopped posting them because it conflicted with their "No discussing individual users" rule, but that rule is long gone which gives the re-birth of Average Joes a great chance![/quote] Yeah you never know thou with Bungie they my bring it back because of many people want it and if a new community guy maybe he wll do it.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Arsenal ATX I found this interview pointless. I found it particularly distasteful when you gave shoutouts and the closing statements were awkward. Of course you can't interview him without him![/quote] He did interview me obviously. O.o

  • Who guys, thanks for the positive feedback. It's nice to see that the efforts of my group can get noticed. We hope to get these to the homepage (we'll submit them on Thursdays and hope they're up by Friday) since we are submitting them but the Community Forum feels right as well. Just expect us to keep trying this and hopefully we'll get better means/attention to make these better for you. The group still has a few hurdles to cross but we're getting there.
