Article Title:Ani Apprentice - Interview with the first person 'fired' I had a chat with the first person to be sent out of the Ani Office. x_Megan_x seems like a lovely girl. <3
Celria: Did you get along with all of your team mates?
x_Megan_x : Of 'course I did. They were all great people & easy to
work with, however the tasks we were given didn't require too much
teamwork. I, personally, found it difficult to communicate with all my
teammates as we'd rarely all be online & I never was there when the
others were on flash chat. But, besides that, we all got along.
Celria: So you got along with everyone? Was there anyone you got along with more, or have made friends with?
x_Megan_x : Well, I found myself getting to know a few of my team mates a
little better. I especially got to know Pirate as she posted in my
thread, and she was the one whom I talked to the most. I also got to
know a lot of the others, but she was the one I most connected with.
Celria: Yeah, she's so sweet isn't she? Is there anyone you found that you didn't get along with?
x_Megan_x : Very sweet, & a great at pixeling too!
& I never really found myself fighting with anyone, as that's
usually not my nature, even in real life. As well, I wasn't in long
enough to get pissed off at anyone, really.
Celria: Did you like the short time in the game that you had?
x_Megan_x : It was a great experience! I loved it; however, it would've been much more fun if Task 1 went through though.
Celria: Yeah, that was a bit disappointing. So, who do you think will win the game, who will the apprentice be?
x_Megan_x : I know, I made quite a few items too.
I personally think you, Celria, will win as you not only stuck up for
the other members of your team, but also do a lot for the community with
the AniPaper and everything. <3
But everyone else also has an equal chance so I'm just waiting to see who'll pull through & make it to the top. <3
Celria: Whee, a vote of confidence, or are you just saying that to be
nice? As you know, the current task is about voting someone off. If you
were still in the game, who do you think you'd get rid of
x_Megan_x : I'm saying it because I believe you'd make a great Mod. :3
If I was still in the game I'd have a tough time deciding, as they all
have great qualities a mod should have, but I'd probably have to go with
Freya. Even though, as you said, she was gonna shine with making
banners and such, I didn't see her at all during the 2nd task and (as of
right now) she hasn't voted. This means she's not on during the busier
parts of the day, where Ani needs Mods.
Celria: Alright, I have to be heading off, so this interview will be
coming to an end. Anything you want to say to the Ani public? Any last
x_Megan_x : Make sure to keep track of Ani Apprentice, as it looks like it'll get interesting. :3
& to the Ani Apprentice contestants, I'll be watching you! <3 Posted: Celria @ Sun Jun 04, 2006 12:18 am
Article Title:Ani apprentice - first task interveiws. Here
they are, the interveiws with the team leaders of the first Ani
Apprentice task. I have interveiwed Coal, but I couldn't very well
interveiw myself, so the lovely lady Matsuko has done it for me.
Question 1: What were some of your responsibilities as a team leader?
Answer: The main thing was making sure we were organized and
communicated with each other. Because alot of the communication was done
over PMs or when people were not online, we had to fill them in on
anything that was decided on, or anything significant that had happened
in conversations they weren't part of. I also had to make sure that
everyones submissions were transperant so that the pixel artists would
have an easy time adding our submissions. Thinking of things for people
who were not good at pixel art to do was also on the list.
Question 2: Sounds like you were busy, were you disappointed with the outcome of the first round?
Answer: Yes I was, I was quite dissapointed. Not in the way the task was
handled, I think James did a great job. I was dissapointed in myself,
because I submitted something like 64 items, but _none_ of them were
good enough to go into the stores. I dunno, I'd worked hard, and it was
discouraging. I'm pretty sure my team mates felt the same way, they each
contributed alot too...
Question 3: It sounds like your team is a tight-knit group.Was it hard to vote someone out in the third round?
Answer: Yeah it was, I didn't want to vote off anyone in my team because
I liked them all, but I didn't want to vote off anyone in the other
team because I didn't know them and it wouldn't be fair. ;_;
Question 4: That's interesting, do you
think it would be more fair to switch the teams around every once in a
while and get to know the other team members this way?
Answer: Yeah, I was thinking that might get done as the groups start to
get smaller. I think that's how they did it on the television show
anyway. The people on the other team seem great, especially Pirate, she
was being _so_ nice to me in the flash chat the other day. <3
Question 5: It's great to make new friends, do you think you'd become a good moderator if you won the competition?
Answer: I'm pretty sure I would, I mean, right now in the flash chat I'm
telling a new user how to change the gender of his avatar. ^^ I think I
already do a fair amount of the 'helping newbies' thing, and I wouldn't
mind cleaning up spam if I were able to...
Question 6: Well, I wish you luck in the competition. Is there anything you'd like to say before concluding this interview?
Answer: I guess I'd like to wish everyone luck in the competition, and
I'll do a shoutout that I think Von God, my team mate, is a great guy,
and you sould all give him hugs and kisses <3 Posted: Celria @ Sun Jun 04, 2006 12:06 am
Article Title:Ani Apprentice—An exclusive article. Here
it is, the exclusive scoop on the new sensation that is sweeping across
the site; Ani Apprentice! Read through this article to discover who the
entrants are, what qualities they will need to possess and even, a
detailed account of one of the tasks! (Are you taking notes
competitors? You’d better! This is going to be the best preparation
The characteristics that our competitors will need to have are:
leadership qualities, logic, kindness, moderation abilities and pixel
art. Don’t worry if all of these do not apply to you, but you’ll need at
least one person on each team with one of those characteristics.
There will be a different group leader for each task, so everyone gets
the opportunity to show what they are like in a leadership position. At
the end of each task, this intrepid reporter will interview the person
who has been fired, and the group leader, so that you, the public can
get in on the action.
Now, here it is, what all you contestants have been waiting for! An
overview of one of the tasks! You’ll need your pixel artist/s out at the
ready for this one!
You are to make and design a number of pixel outfits to sell in the
trading post. They will not be accessible to buy in the stores, but when
people purchase them from your trading post thread, the items will
appear in the customers inventory. The person who can succeed at selling
the most of their pixel items is the winner! Team mates without the
ability to pixel art will not be left out, they can market, decide on
what to make, advertise, man the store, and any number of things that
the team can think of!
Good luck to all competitors!
Especially to me, and the blue team! Posted: Celria @ Sat May 27, 2006 12:24 am

Article Title:Interview with God. Interview:
Hannah: Hello, My name is Hannah Montana and do you mind if I interview you and ask you a couple of Questions?
God: Sure go ahead.
Hannah:Okay. What would you plan
on doing if you became a Mod, Admin,or Owner of Ani? How would you
improve this site and who would you make Mods or Admins?
God: Well, first off I'd probably
try to figure out what the demand is for the users and report it to the
owner, unless I was the owner. Secondly, I'd try to work my hardest to
get what the users want.
Getting a user to look at your site is one thing, getting a user to be hooked on your site is another.
How would I improve this site?
Well that's easy I'd start by trying to make a "game mode", this would
be hard work and would need alot of dedication. My plan would be to make
an online mmorpg so users can play and interact, much like Maplestory
or Gaia Towns, but only earn currency in the forums. This would probably
allow me to make more graphics for the site.
Is there anything else?
Hannah: Yes, What exactly is a 'mmorpg'??
God:Well, an MMORPG is a massively multiplayer online role-playing game. It's just something fun to do.
How long have you been on this site? Would this site interest other users of different sites to join this one?
God:Well I've been on here since the begining of May, around there.
Yes, I think it would. Coming from a Gaia, this site offers the same
ammount, or more, "action" as other sites and it hasn't even began to
It's also extraodinary how users can submit their items to be put in
shops, more sites should promote this. It makes the user want to
dedicate more time to the site.
Hannah:If you were owner of this site how much Zenny would you give to the user if they had just joined?
God: I'd say around the same ammount that is given now.
The ammount given at the moment works the user to buy certin things during certian times. The Zenny ammount is a-okay by me.
Hannah:Good. If you could invent ANY item on Ani what would it be and why? Would you think the users would like it?
Well, as you can see I'm hooked on zombies. heh.
The item I'd probably make is some sort of item that would allow you to
have "multiple" items, much like the Lunar Pendant, just because it's
not done in many games, and zombies arn't normally introduced so early.
Hannah:Well that includes the interview! Is there any questions that you would like to ask me?
God:Yes, if you become a reporter what do you intent on doing?
Hannah: If I become a reporter I
intend on doing tons of interviews constantly asking people all sorts or
questions. I find it really fun to do!
God:Thank you for the Interview Hannah!!
Hannah: Your welcome! Posted: Anonymous @ Sun May 21, 2006 7:34 pm
