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.

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.

> "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.

Scale by TheModerator
I've decided to put some of the photos I took whilst hiking on DA, because damnit they look nice and so therefore can be considered art. Pokémon pictures will resume VERY shortly, don't you worry.

When you're surrounded by such mountains and wonderful scenery, it's hard to get a sense of scale. The small, from far away, becomes the immense up close, and it's not uncommon to consider your surroundings both infinitesimally small and overwhelmingly gigantic at the same time. It's only when you have something man-made on the scene that you can truly appreciate how endless it all really is. The tent bottom right - also my accommodation - serves that purpose here.

I honestly don't know why you're reading the description. Just look at the image above and enjoy it.
Taken in the lake district during a week long solo expedition in which I relied solely on what I had packed and what I could gather. Taken by yours truly with the FujiFilm HS10 in Panorama mode on day 3 of 7.
Utilization by TheModerator
This is my gutting/utility knife, requested at a heavy discount from the same guy who did the other ones. Blade is stainless, handle is redwood and the small hilt is brass. The indentations were made especially for my hand, to accommodate for my not-so-manly thin-but-long fingers. Very comfortable to hold, very sharp, handles the majority of jobs - from skinning a rabbit to opening blister packaging - well. Blade is 95mm (3.5in for you americans), so again, not legal to carry in the UK.

I'm surprisingly fond of this one. It's not the biggest, it's not the fancy-ist, but it's just the right weight, and very well balanced (I can spin it like a pen in my hand. Not sure why I would, but it's possible).

I took this photo from this angle to show you guys the stamp on the reverse side of the blade, which identifies the maker (R R Middleton) and where the steel is from (Sheffield). Sheffield is well known as the birthplace of stainless steel, and is still the world leader when it comes to quality stainless. As for the guy (R Middleton), he is also from Sheffield, and as you can no doubt see, a very talented person.

My other knives:
Metalwork and Finesse
All photos are taken on the same scale: White stripes are 30mm wide, navy ones are 20mm.
Finesse by TheModerator
This is a handcrafted narrow-blade Bowie knife, and yes, it looks like one you may have seen before. But it's not; the blade is about ~8mm shorter and 20mm narrower. Blade is stamped local Sheffield Stainless Steel, and features the signatory spline depressions. Hilt is brass (and needs cleaning a lot), as are the pins which keep the wooden handle in place. A good all-round knife IMHO :D

Made by the same guy who made the ones below, took him about 2 days even though his left hand is now so burnt it is unusable. The man himself is incredible, he makes all of these and more in a shed in his back garden. The steel blocks, and wood come in, then the blades are forged, handles carved, hilts made and then you have this! Tried to persuade him to sell online but he's 85 and the technology is somewhat beyond him.

My other knives:
Metalwork and Utilization

Apologies for the potato image quality. Photographic metallic stuff is hard without the correct lighting equipment! Called it 'Finesse' because of the attention to detail required, and the blade is finer than any of my others. #seewhatididthere 
"A student tells you they are gay. What is the acceptable response?"
Apparently, saying "I knew it!" and paying the person stood next to you is deemed 'Inappropriate'.

Also may be loosing my DBS check too. Nvrmind.
Gens 1-6 Pokemon Models (inc. Mega)! [3D DOWNLOAD] by TheModerator
Gens 1-6 Pokemon Models (inc. Mega)! [3D DOWNLOAD]
That's right guys. I've added 58 new models to the 3D Pokemon Models archive over at the ROEStudios 3D Pokemon Model Download Site, which means you can now enjoy not just some of the new Generation 6 pokemon, but also some of the previous gens, NOW WITH ADDED MEGA EVOLUTIONS!

Theise models are suitable for use in all industry-standard modelling and animation applications, including Blender, Maya, Cinema4D (C4D) and yes, even Autodesk Inventor. Some of these models have even been printed out on a 3D printer, which is wicked-ass-cool too. MMD can be supported with a bit of tweaking. Downloading is free and requires no surveys or anything like that, just hit the button and go.

Mega evolutions are kept in the same folder as the standard evolutions, so to download Mega Lucario, just go to the Lucario download page and download from there. At the moment, most models are simply models and whilst they are in a rigging pose, they are NOT rigged. A few contain rigging data as a PSK though this is not 100% incorporated yet.

With a database this big, you can forget searching anywhere else. You can download all FIVE HUNDRED AND EIGHTY SIX Pokemon 3D models at in one big zip file (It's a big database. 777MB big, in fact), or if you don't have a big data plan, select individually from the list on the right.

New model additions include the following Gen 5 pokemon which were missing from the last update:
And the Gen 6 pokemon, ripped from Pokemon X&Y:
Not to mention the additional upgrades and megas from the previous gens too!

As always dudes, enjoy!…

Episode 2: You're still all retards.

Such Romance.

What's the worst that could happen?



If you type like this, I will be under your bed when you go to sleep tonight. That is all

You're right. A bulgy crouch is suspicious...

Well, if you can't take the heat...

This isn't a fail of a comment. This person just has too much spare time:

Wait... What?

I... I dunno how a beard can be a terrorist. Generally, the guy it's attached to will be the terrorist. Either way, I'm now picturing a beard with a stick of dynamite in it.

Well that was a beerilliant story

Think about it guys. Just think about that for a second.

and finally...

No... I think we have other reasons to hate america too.

Well, have you tried blocking him? The block feature is available at… , towards the bottom. Copy and paste the name of the guy who's bugging you in to that box, then hit save.

Also, I'm curious as to what happens if you put your own username in that box. Try it out and tell me what happens :D

Whoops!  That happens sometimes. I was running on about an hour of sleep.  My bad.     Was pretty fun though.
