I do lots of different things depending on what mood I'm in. Check out my gallery; it's filled with pokémon, awesome scenery, knives, and maybe a combination of those!

I Am TheModerator


I'm not much of an artist.
I'm more of a computer programming, rocket sciencing, video producing, 3D Modelling, feral hunting, system hacking, mountain climbing, bow shooting, file decrypting, server hosting, generic all round badass.

I'm not without my faults; For starters, I am not an expert on dragon butts.
But the bio isn't a place to look modest, it's a place to impress. I hope I manage that.

Interesting Facts

> A human can survive in space without protection for up to 2 minutes (though permanent damage occurs within the first second)
> The sharp/dial/hashtag symbol # is actually called an octothorpe
> And the pointy up arrow ^ is a sarcastiquote, used to denote sarcastic passages of text, or words to be read in a sarcastic mannor. It's ^Really^ useful.
> Humans actually use significantly more than 9% of their brainpower, unlike the urban myth suggests.
> You can crack any computer password by using your phone's microphone and some complex analysis to listen to the noise the CPU makes when it processes it.
> The cake is a lie
> In the UK, it is legal to carry a knife longer than 3 inches in public... If you have a reason to, such as if you are a butcher.
> It only takes a maximum of 3 inches to please any woman; they do not even care if it's Visa or Mastercard.
> The english word with the most definitions is 'set', and has over 24 different meanings (unlike 'fuck', which has less than 10 officially recognised ones).
> You can escape from zip tie handcuffs by using your knee and the levering affect of your arms, rapidly combined to produce a sheer force across the locking feature. This also works on duct tape.

Wait, you wanted interesting facts about ME!?!?
Well, it is my profile so that makes sense...
Okay, 20 little-known facts about TheModeraotr

> My favorite color is either Black or Light Blue.
> I am no longer the german average height for a male.
> I don't mind crowds, but if anyone touches me and I don't expect it, I habitually react violently. I once dislocated my friend's index finger because he patted me on the shoulder at a train station.
> ... I've got 110% vision, but one of my eyes is slightly lopsided. I haven't decided which one.
> I move about a lot. I'm never in the same bed for more than a month at a time
> Bed salespeople love me.
> I left school and started work at 16.
> I published one of my addresses on the internet for anyone to find, but people still ask me where I live.
> Sometimes, when it is cold outside, I like to breach out deeply and pretend I am a dragon
(getting desperate...)
> Some say, that I think entirely in an ancient version of binary. And that if I were confronted with a choice between three objects of similar color, my left ankle would rotate anticlockwise. All you know is, I'm called TheModerator. :iconstigplz: (Top gear fans will get that one)
> Whenever I do an endurance challenge, I carry a bag with 5kg of water and give some to those in need along the route.
> My milkshake brings all the boys to the yard.
> Contrary to popular belief, I was not raised by, nor have I ever even seen, a wolf.
> I once asked a secruity guard at an airport why he allowed people to fly with LiPo batteries in their laptops, when they could be exploded with enough force to damage the airframe, simply by shorting two terminals. He didn't know.
> People often confuse me for the real slim shady; this is due - in part - to my tenancy to stand up during particular music tracks.
> I can rap the entirity of Rap God by eminem at a vary high accuracy.
> I think that European keyboards are a genetic defect and should be treated as such: Nice and sympathetically, but also secretly wishing it would go away.
> When I'm offered 1 free sample of something, I take 2, because I'm a wild stallion that can not be tamed.

Lessons Learnt

Occasionally, something deep and profound happens to me that really does teach me how to do better in life. Something that proved a learning experience for me. And I feel it's only fair for me to make sure you can learn from it too, without making the same mistakes...

> That lady you think is pregnant is just fat. Don't make it awkward.
> Brush teeth first, then put on tie.
> The tie reflects the person. Clip on ties are stupid, and toothpaste stained ones are much worse.
> The only reason to point any weapon at someone is if you have the full intention to fire it.
> "It's not that much food" is almost certainly too much food.
> Keep your enemies close, so you can figure out what bugs them most.


You're a computer hacker!?
Ex-computer hacker. I stopped.
Why are you a design engineer at 18? Don't you need to go to unive-
Nope. So long as you're talented and make yourself known, you can get offered an apprenticeship. Some companies even pay to send you to uni, which is nice, because you don't get any student debt. I'd seriously recommend it to ANYONE. If you're interested in following that route, please, PM me with any questions you may have.
You hunt?
Yes, since I was 14. I use a recurve bow with a measly 64lb pull strength and some home-made arrows. My knife was an 18th birthday present and I've got about a 10x12 mile rectangle of land where I'm allowed.
I'm coming to England! Can we meet up?
Sure. I'm not really based in any particular part of the country, so just let me know whereabouts you're going and I'll see if I can make it.
What exactly is your job? It seems like a lot of things
It is. I'm technically a Component Definition Engineer, which basically encompasses most aspects of component/part/thing design, from the initial conception, to the 3D model, to drawing the technical drawing, to the actual part starting to be machined/made. I'm also responsible for automating parts of that process, plus I do other stuff on the side too.
Why do you sound different whenever you speak?
Haha. It's to do with where I've been and who I've been talking to. I have Queens English, Yorkshire, Jordie and German accents, but they only become pronounced after I've spent a few days in the location the accent is from. Paradoxically, it's only these accents: I'm very slow at picking up other ones.

Guess what!?!!? I don't do commissions.

(Just kidding. I'm checking some software which figures out if a user does c0mmissions or not.)

[Animation] Pokemon GO (outside people plz)
This is a PkmnGO Themed post. Pokemon GO is Nintendo's latest solution (after streetpass, those Pokemon tamogotchi things and link cables) that have desperately tried to unite the mad people and get them some excercise at the same time.

Nice try Nintendo. We almost fell for it XD.

So yeah. This is how I'd like it to look. It's not how it'll look, but this is how I'd LIKE it to.

Drone footage by me.
Where are you? by TheModerator
Where are you?
Dunno about you, but I was at 54° 28' 55.5456'' N, 3° 13' 9.3792'' W, According to my GPS

This is the summit of a mountain in the lake district called 'Great Gable'. It is exactly 101 meters too short of 1000 meters in altitude, a fact which is apparent because at the 9 oclock position, disappearing into the clouds (or rather, not, because it's disappeared into the clouds), you can (not) see an actual mountain - Scafell Pike, which is about 80 meters taller.

It's a nice place to stop and think. True, you're not at the highest point you can see, but in some ways, it's better. It's a lot quieter and the wind isn't as bad. The view is much better; the contrast provided by features both higher and lower than you are give you a sense of scale. Though you are but a dot in this excessively large landscape, you are important to it. Just because you're not at a high point, doesn't mean you're not on top.

How this image was made:
1) A complete 360x180 degree panorama including the sky and floor was taken using my mobile phone (My camera's HDR capability is... nonexistent...)
2) The panorama was then loaded into some software called Hugin and stitched together in a Equirectangular projection
3) The projection was then remapped to a stereographic projection at 90 degrees positive pitch
4) ???
5) Profit!

I have a few more of these, done slightly better too, which I will upload soon. This is just one of my favorites, even if it does have a few flaws.

Hey moderator, I recently watched one of your YouTube videos on the kibectmon, which I found very fascinating! Your highly skilled and keep up the great work. I was wondering about you personally, like what do you do for work or is the hackathon and modeling creation/development on YouTube and deviant your paid gigs? Hopefully, I'm not getting to personal, but a bio or daw about you would be awesome!
TheModerator Featured By Owner Nov 11, 2015
Err... gee, thank you, I'm kinda flattered actually.

I used to do (pre 2012) hackathons but I've stopped because they're a tad too risqué for the line of work which I do now. I earn royalties from various other things (patents, computer libraries, certain other things) which you wont have heard of but I'd prefer to keep secret. I was kicked out of school when I was 16 and from there I decided to go straight into work instead of going to college or university. This was extraordinarily risky and I would not recommend this approach to anyone; the fact it worked for me is a million-to-one kinda odds.

I work as a manufacturing systems and design engineer for an aerospace firm, and between that, commuting, and various other side projects, I've had to tone down the youtube videos and DA stuff. That will, however, start coming back online again soon as I start to manage my workload better.

I've fallen into that trap of not remembering anything interesting about myself the moment I'm asked to recall just that. Have you got any specific questions?

You are one of the least chill individuals I know.

I know what the issue is. It's not with the model, download, or textures, either. Yet again, you've not read the description or readme or instructions or the disclaimer or indeed anything that I provided that would help you in this situation.

I'm doing this for free, using my own spare time which is at a premium ATM. Please show some respect.
