Get To Know The Team: Yoshi2889
« on: May 11, 2012, 10:16:12 AM »
Name: Rick Kerkhof
Age: 18
Location: The Netherlands
Quote: "Meh."
Position: Support -> Customizer

Do you have pets?
Yep, two dogs and a cat.

What is your favorite color?
Probably blue.

What kind of music do you like?
I really like all styles of music depending on my mood; one moment I can listen to dubstep and switch to rock an hour later. :P

What do you do on your free time besides spending time on SMF?
High school likes to hit me with assignments.

What are your goals/dreams in life?
To become a good coder, and to help people.

What got you involved in SMF?
I joined a forum that ran SMF. It was the 2.0 RC2 time back then. I got interested in how the software worked and how it was made, so I decided to research that a bit. I first got to SMFForFree, but it lacked features. That's how I got to the real SMF :P

Who do you admire? Why?
I admire people who are willing to aid others.

Are you into sports?  If so which ones?
Nope, but I really should. :P

What is your dream job?
Astronaut. But that's definitely not going to happen :D

What was your first screenname?
Yoshi2889. Long story, don't ask.

Do you have any piercings?
Nope, I think they look stupid.

Are you a lefty/righty or ambidextrous?
Lefty and I'm proud of it :)

Do you have any tattoo's?  If not do you wish/plan to get one?
No and no.

Do you have any siblings?  If so, how many of each?
Nope, it's nice and peaceful :)

What is your favorite website?
I visit so many websites nowadays that I can't really pick a single favourite one.

Do you play computer games?  If so, which ones?
Oh man, I own around 100 games on Steam. And that doesn't even include the games for Wii U and DS.

Do you play video game consoles?  Which ones?
I own a Wii U and love playing on it. Should also finish some games on DS but it's so small and pixel-y... :P

Are you married or planing to get married?
Not married, and not yet interested in marrying :D

If so do you have any kids?
No. I'm 18 ???

How many kids?
None.

How many languages do you speak?  If so which ones?
I can read (and write some) of Dutch, English, French, Latin, Greek and German. That's 6.
Speaking only English and Dutch, really.

Do you drink?
Usually, no. When I do though I get drunk way too easily (and always tip over). :P

Do you smoke?
No. My parents smoke though so I might, indirectly.

Did you play hookey from class?
My parents were actually fairly generous with this; they'd write notes that I couldn't participate in PE class for example, just because I didn't feel like it. :P But I didn't just skip class without giving a reason, though.

Do you have a license?
I do, actually. Brace yourselves >:D

Do you own a car?
No. I prefer stealing my parents' car O:) It's cheaper for me, too. :P

Have you ever been stopped for speeding?
Nope. Not yet, at least.

Do you obtain a good amount of sleep daily?
I have to take extra melatonin to get any sleep. If I take it around 10PM, I fall asleep at around 2AM. Wouldn't say I sleep well usually :(

How do you sleep?
No idea, I always wake up with my bed looking like a war happened.

Have you ever been on an airplane?
Yup. Multiple times. First time to Turkey, then on a school trip to Rome, and a family trip to London.

Have you ever broken a bone?
Yes, both legs together one time. Quite annoying, really.

Do you wear jewelry?  If so what jewelry do you wear?
Except for my watch not really.

How do you dress?
Usually just jeans and a t-shirt. I'm way too lazy to dress properly.

How many keys are on your keyring?
Bike, locker, gate, home... That makes 4 :)

What time do you go to bed?  What time do you wake up?
Weekend around 2:00 and up around 10:00.
Normally 22:00 and up at 7:15.

What's the freakiest thing you have done?
I do so many weird things on a daily basis that it's hard to pick a single weirdest/freakiest thing.

Do you live alone?
Nope, I live with my parents.

How many hours a day do you spend in the computer?
I don't spend time in a computer ;) I'd love for my brain to be poured in one though, eventually.
I spend a lot of time using computers though. Too much, maybe O:)

How many hours a day do you spend in SMF?
Depends on how much work there is to do :) I usually spend time on SMF in the weekends though because all other days school requires my attention.

What is your favorite beverage - coffee, tea, soda, beer, other?
Probably Coca Cola and Fanta.

What do you hate?
I'd probably be able to write an essay about the things I hate. The thing that fires me up the most probably is modern society though.

What do you love?
My family and friends. And SMF of course :P

What is your hair color?
Dark blond? I guess... Maybe brown.

How tall are you?
1.96 metres. Google thinks that's 77.1654 inches.

How much do you weigh?
Uh, too much. Don't remember O:)

What's the feature on SMF you can't live without?
As an administrator?
Admin Panel, lol.

As an end user?
Unread replies, I'll definitely die without that.

As a modder?
Integration hooks!

What gadgets do you own?
My life pretty much consists out of gadgets :P Geekiest thing though is probably a smartwatch (Moto 360 2nd Gen). Also the usual stuff, a tablet, laptop, desktop, ..., you name it. (help, I'm a nerd)

Curious, if you're 13 now, did you get your parents to sign a COPPA form when you first joined here 2 years ago?
To assume is to hope that those who came before had the presence of mind and capacity to implement the dreams of those who would come after.

You either die a hero or live long enough to see yourself become the villain. It seems you have chosen which, and now I must do the same.

So on the registration page you said you were over 13 when you joined here?

Who didn't? ;D

You're taller than me. That's just unacceptable. I will have to take some sort of action against you, my friend.

No, I just registered without us having to sign a COPPA...

Possible that I didn't fill in any age, though, because I believe I filled it in later on.

(might have looked different back then though, I don't remember when the registration page was updated to this ugly one)

Not that I'm judging anyone. I was 12 when I signed on, and just over 13 when I got on the team. :P

No such thing as VB in my day. My first PC had a floppy drive and two cartridge drives, no hard drive. Some of my programs I made spanned multiple floppy disk, lol.

Age: 13

I'm sometimes amazed when I find out the age of some members around here.

Keep up the good work and I wish you the best of luck with what ever you decide to do in the future.
