"It really means a ton to me, coming from a newer member of the community. Maybe it's a bit different to you people, but ratings don't matter as much to me. I don't disable ratings due to laziness. Mapping and playing wise, I was always that "good but not quite the best." I never held a consistent theme or idea. Many of my best ideas were poorly executed." - Lightning55 (thanks paradox-dragon, this is a perfect quote of me)

I'd also like it if I got onto someone's favorite authors page, but that'll never happen.

It is very sad that I have yet to get a feature despite being in this community so long. <3

I love thwumps on this game...even though I cant make a dda using them >.< but I made a DDA about them :D.

People who know me know me as John or Signor Pablo. I don't know how I got that name, I'm Asian for pete sake.

I like metal music. I listen to Mario, Kirby, Pokemon and Fire Emblem themes too. My favorite bands are Altaria, Stratovarius, Dragonforce, Edguy, Freedom Call, Hammerfall, Sonata Arctica, 3 Doors Down, Symphony X, Helloween, Heavenly, Nightwish, Kamelot, and Gamma Ray.

Also, because people seem to love Through the Fire and Flames for DragonForce, I will note that that song SUCKS!!!! Listen to other real DF songs. They only picked it for GH3 because it wouldn't kill the no-lifers who GH all day. Fury of the Storm is my fav, but geez, TFAF, god.... it's beyond horrible for their standards.

Whoever can name my favorite song from each band gets a ded. :D...........psych. I just noticed most of those bands are not in the U.S. Stratovarius locates in mainly Japan. All the others are mainly European based (I think).

I play Perfect Cherry Blossom and Imperishable Night. (you would know if you played)

I have officially beaten N+ for the DS 9/30/09.
UPDATE: In retrospect, that was a painfully easy game.

I owe Borealis a ded. I cleared out some of my favs that weren't important to me.
I should still probably ded him sometime.
