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; I have some very severe ones that I don't like to talk about.

But the bio isn't a place to look modest, it's a place to impress. So, here's a pic of me, doing what I do best: Epicosity.

"If you never look behind, you're missing half the story"
- Jon (A doctor who's helped me a lot)


Feel free to tag me, but be warned, I will not take you seriously and you will regret it
Just wanna talk? Add me on steam: rjsowden

Got something to ask me? Comments, notes, emails. No matter what it is, I'll always answer. Ignorance is a billion times worse than curiosity.

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.
> Last time I checked, I was dead on 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.

> 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 challange, 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.


I've not got everything sorted out just yet. But when I do, prepare yourself.

I'mma write out this article. But first,

Lemme take a selfie

The chill guy on the left is Latrion, whilst the cool dude to the right is yours truly. Note how the one on the left is rocking an awesome neck chain thing, whereas I've just got a neck which doesn't have discernible start or finish. I say cool and chill, but I'll be honest, the weather was absolutely ROASTING. Being from the north, the warmest thing I'd ever experienced before was a freshly-cooked pastie. This was far far warmer than that, although according to Latrion, this was "Typical Texan weather". Well I hate to disappoint you, buddy, but you ain't in Kansas no more (Film quote bonus!).

Anyways, yeah, not only did I get to meet this guy, I got introduced to his entire family and wander around the stereotypical British town of Cambridge, birthplace of Darwin. Not Charles Darwin. Charles Darwin, as it turns out, was actually born and died in Shrewsbury, much further south. I got that from Google, though, as it turns out his dad knew more about the place then I did, including a bar which was not just the place where the human genome was first hypothesized, but also had a ceiling with the names of American WW2 Pilots on it. Some very interesting heritage (and clocks) to be seen, and I'd definitely recommend it. If any of you guys end up there, let me know and I'll pop down too!

Also, I forgot that, of course, American chocolate is... not really chocolate. Once I remembered this, I instantly introduced my good friend to the 'Double Decker':  A chocolate bar so rich and filled with brilliance and sunshine, the EU restrict the sugar/calorie content if it's being sold as a multipack. That's one badass bar right there. And I'm sorry to Latrion again if he now is unable to have Yanke chocolate, or indeed found our british ones too sickly. They're rich.

Anyways, after a nice discussion under a tree (and a series of wince-inducing puns, amirite!?!?!), I was asked to shut my eyes and allow him to place something on my head. It's at this point I must apologize for threatening to murder him. I don't like not being able to see in public. I felt a hat-shaped object on my head, closely followed by the instruction to open my eyes. Lo and behold...

Of course, I couldn't actually SEE the hat until I saw the photo. But when I did...

(I'd call this one 'You crafty rascal' if I had to name it. I'd also take it from a higher angle and have Latrion more in shot)

BEWM! IS THAT OR IS THAT NOT ONE OF THE MOST AWESOME HATS YOU HAVE EVER SEEN?!? It's got ears and everything! Naturally I'm going to get one now, so if you wouldn't mind telling me where you got it, that'd be ace! Just.... dbhk sebbwfbe,!!!!111!!!1! Oh just excellent!

It's actually a shame I only had the two hours before I had to get on a train to London, then right back up to Manchester, for what can only be described as a somewhat letdown of a stag party. (It's traditional in most western countries to get blackout drunk before a friend's wedding). I did this - for reasons which have not been explained - in the worlds least well-fitting penguin onesie. 

Kill me. Please.

But yeah, Latrion is just a great guy, and the moment I'm allowed to America, I'll probably stop by; I'd encourage anyone else to do just that too!

Here's to my good friend who I can at last say I've met eye-to-eye with, Latrion. May your future be fortunate and graceful, and may our paths cross again!

Just wondering, Do you know if textures will appear in Unity?
TheModerator Featured By Owner Jul 8, 2014
Honestly, no idea. Let me know when you find out!
Blayer98 Featured By Owner Jul 9, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Ok! Sorry about the argument last year. I'm still developing the game, it's almost one year since I started it! :D

and there is still NO flames on Moltres when I told you about the issue >1 year ago!!!
TheModerator Featured By Owner Jun 9, 2014
Okay, right, I don't know who you are, and I don't know what you're doing, but as I said a year ago, Moltres, when imported correctly, does have flames on. Likewise, the Salamance model is perfectly fine, and I've even asked another person to import them and see if there's anything wrong. They haven't found anything. It's a problem that only you seem to be having, and whilst I've provided over an hours worth of video tutorials, you've told me next to nothing about how you're making it not work.

I don't want to make it seem like I'm not trying, so here's some pictures just to prove it:…
