Maybe interview Webb ... In any case, sounds awesome or do I just need to go away?

Also, before someone says "Grifter should do it"... No Grifter shouldn't do it. He has too much to do already.
as cool as it would be, the only people who have been here long enough to even begin something like this, but who are also active, are staff. which i'm assuming means, they wouldn't have time.

still, there are people who seem to have been here since the beginning, like Maka and... well, thats all i've got on that, who would be able to do it.

good idea though

An interview with Rx would be really interesting. He seems quite elusive so...

I see him sometimes. In the forum index there is a box at the bottom with all currently active users and he is there sometimes. I do check it all the time though.

I've seen maybe 6-7 posts from him, even with access to the staff board.

I'd support an interview with him

It, it just seems like he's ashamed of his own creation. Nah I think an interview with him would be very interesting.

Regarding RX:

We keep his nose to the grindstone. There's a huge list of things for him to work on and code. Everytime he finishes one, we have 3 more added to the list. Poor guy.

Regarding my idea:

It wouldn't have to be staff and it wouldn't have to be one person. There's this thing called team effort...

First time I saw an actual Rx post, I got all giddy and excited like the first time I found out abount Santa when I was 3. Up until then, I didn't think he was real.

I lol'd.

I'd enjoy seeing a review from Rx, I'd like to know how he feels about the site's current status.
