Get to Know the Team: Eliana Tamerin
« on: June 11, 2008, 03:12:46 PM »
Name: Jordan
Age: 19
Location: Minnesota, USA
Quote: "Minds are like parachutes, they only function when open." Thomas R. Dewar
Position: Support Specialist

  • Do you have pets?
    I used to have fish but it was hard to take care of them, they kept breeding and multiplying. And I was a kid, too.
  • What is your favorite color?
    Well, it used to be blue, and then I liked red. So I decided to compromise. Purple it is!
  • What kind of music do you like?
    My music tastes are a good mix, I enjoy straight classical as well as more modern pieces. Movies soundtracks (and now, some video games') are a good source of music for me. I do like some pop/country/rock/christian, but very few out of the wide variety. My favorites are probably Casting Crowns, Billy Gilman, Declan Galbraith, Maksim, and Kutless.
  • What do you do on your free time besides spending time on SMF?
    I play forum-based RPGs (read: writing), I read, I play some PC video games (don't have a console) and hang out with friends. From September to May I'm off to college, so that's schooling as well.
  • What are your goals/dreams in life?
    My dream is to get a degree in Computer Science and get a good job right now.
  • What got you involved in SMF?
    I noticed somebody else using the software on a board that I was admin on, they bragged about how easy it was, and I got hooked.
  • Who do you admire? Why?
    I actually don't have a really big role model.
  • Are you into sports?  If so which ones?
    What are sports?

    Don't really care for many sports, actually. I have better things to do with my time.
  • What is your dream job?
    I've never dreamt about working, so I can't say that I have a job when I dream. :P
  • What was your first screenname?
    You're going to laugh: astro-nut-1
  • Do you have any piercings?
    No.
  • Are you a lefty/righty or ambidextrous?
    Righty
  • Do you have any tattoo's?  If not do you wish/plan to get one?
    No, and I don't plan to get any.
  • Do you have any siblings?  If so, how many of each?
    I have one sister and one brother, and they have too many children among them.
  • What is your favorite website?
    phpb-err, I mean Simplemachines.org :P
  • Do you play computer games?  If so, which ones?
    Yes. I typically play RTS games, with very few FPSs thrown in there. My favorites over the years have been Age of Empires II (not III, though), Homeworld 2, and now Sins of a Solar Empire.
  • Do you play video game consoles?  Which ones?
    I don't have any.
  • Are you married or planing to get married?
    Nope, not yet.
  • How many languages do you speak?  If so which ones?
    Two, English and American Sign Language
  • Do you drink?
    Water, milk and juice, right? Oh, you meant alcohol, nah.
  • Do you smoke?
    No.
  • Did you play hookey from class?
    I have, though not before college.
  • Do you have a license?
    Yes
    • Do you own a car?
      Yes, a nice little Mazda B4000 1994 White Truck. Yes I know they're basically Ford Rangers! :P
    • Have you ever been stopped for speeding?
      Woo-hoo, no!
  • Do you obtain a good amount of sleep daily?
    Define "good." I can usually get by with about 5 hours, even though my body likes 10.
  • How do you sleep?
    In a bed? With my eyes closed?
  • Have you ever been on an airplane?
    Yes, four times.
  • Have you ever broken a bone?
    No, thankfully.
  • Do you wear jewelry?  If so what jewelry do you wear?
    I don't usually. Not sure why, it just always seems so cumbersome when I do.
  • How do you dress?
    Pretty casually, tshirts and jeans mostly, sometimes a sweatshirt or two. I'm not the most trendy person on Earth.
  • How many keys are on your keyring?
    Three.
  • What time do you go to bed?  What time do you wake up?
    Depends on the day. Anywhere from 8pm to 4am to bed, and anywhere from 6am to 2pm to wake up. ;)
  • What's the freakiest thing you have done?
    Trick my parents into thinking I had come home drunk when I was sixteen.
  • Do you live alone?
    No.
  • How many hours a day do you spend in the computer?
    Too many.
  • How many hours a day do you spend in SMF?
    You need ask? Again, too many. :P
  • What is your favorite beverage - coffee, tea, soda, beer, other?
    E. None of the above.

    I really don't like soda/pop all that much, never grew to like it as a kid. I might drink it now and then, but it's not my first choice. Coffee is too bitter to me, and tea is too tasteless. And alcohol isn't something I want to drink, not right now anyways. I'm not even legally able to, but it just doesn't taste right to me.

    I prefer fruit juices or milk or water, actually.
  • What do you hate?
    Stupid people, arrogance, egos, unfair rules, being too crowded
  • What do you love?
    Chocolate, being alone (sometimes), my friends, family, computers, books, imagination
  • What is your religion?
    Christian Lutheran (ELCA), though I do disagree with some of the ideals of my demonination.
  • What is your hair color?
    Sandy brown
  • How tall are you?
    5'9"
  • How much do you weigh?
    130 lbs
  • What's the feature on SMF you can't live without?
    • As an administrator?
      Package Manager, I would die if I had to install all those mods myself.
    • As an end user?
      Quick reply.

*eren hit the nail on the head.

I used to have a character (male) called Jordan Jay Couly. Terrible name, now that I look back. Anyways, another player wanted me to get involved in this subplot, with a pair of siblings named Eliana Tamerin and Prot Tamerin (another bad name, eww). Well, the subplot fizzled but I kept the name and it continued to live on.

No, my real name is Jordan. That's real, as much as I might like another name. ;)

And just as fake as any other name on the team. :P

If I remember right, you weren't much above 6 feet tall if you were Runic, she's actually pretty dang tall for a woman. Maybe you just didn't do the conversion right in your math. :P

Bryan was roughly my height, so, nah he's no shorty.  Eliana is around the average height for a girl, no?

So...

what made you get involved in SMF support?
what words of advice do you have for anyone looking to get involved in support?

  • How tall are you?
    5'9"

Hey, you're taller than I am! :D

she's actually pretty dang tall for a woman.

+1

Eliana is around the average height for a girl, no?

You're kidding, right? Her height is ABOVE average for a woman, quite near the male average in fact. Heck, she could very well be a model if she wanted. ;)

Being a model isn't all about height. It depends on the person wanting it and also some other physical aspects ;)
