My first Member Spotlight is for a dear friend of mine ImmortalJed. My experiences with Jed have shown me that he has talent, he is a selfless person. Even though he himself refuses to see how good he is, many of us remind him how good he is. This spotlight is to display to all visitors of Anime League just how special he is and the impact he has had on people.
Interview with: ImmortalJed
Q: What would you say motivates you to write your poems and stories?
A: A lot of things, my poetry is mostly emotions and I write them as I go.
Q: I see that you are a MOD. What section do you MOD? Also why this section?
A: I Moderate L&W and GD. L&W because it was where I first felt at home on AL. It's full of incredible talent and amazing people. GD I signed up to help out after one of the other mods stepped down, and it's good section to discuss your views on various topics, such as news and current affairs.
Q: What impact have you had on your section thus far?
A: L&W, I personally feel not that much. I have a high post count, and I try to review everything that is posted.I try to come up with new ideas for the section too, such as the Camp fire Challenge that we ran on Halloween last year. GD, I've tried to help with new ideas, and I've posted up an Automotive Discussion thread, so people can discuss cars, bikes and motorsport.
Q: What would you say is your best moment on Anime League?
A: Hard to say, I was quite proud to be modded if I'm honest that was a pretty big moment for me.
Q: Is there any advice you would give to those who wish to follow in your foot steps?
A: I would say that you need to just keep yourself active, be friendly and be yourself. Most of all, be yourself and try to help if you can, regardless of your status
Q: What are some of your future plans in your section?
A: Currently working on a cross over event, which is being kept hush hush at the moment as well as a Choose your own Adventure story. Which should be starting fairly soon with any luck.
These are some of his work:
There is no honour amongst dead men,
No chivalry, just false pretence,
Living a life devoid of emotion,
Edging towards the final promotion,
To the position of winged one in the sky,
A trip to the resting place once we die.
Thoughts at Dawn
Sleepless nights in dark Light,
Illuminated mind filled with harsh rights.
Time cannot heal all that ailes,
Unless sleep can sometime prevail
For the body is weak but the mind is fierce.
All consuming shadows hit by sunlight,
It’s morning again,
I'm welcomed by familiar trends,
Sleep eluded me once again,
But that's to be expected,
Insomnia is my friend,
The only thing that has remained true,
So now I tell its loyal story to you.
Here are some of the opinions of ImmortalJed:
Mod Shadow’s comments:
I'd define Immy as: Nice. Funny. Friendly. Smart. Hard Working. Respectable. Kind Natured. Helpful.
Fondest memory was... when he said yes to being an assistant and convincing him he would do wonderful.
Q: What impresses you the most about ImmortalJed?
His activity and friendliness has been an achievement in comparison to other mods who had a lot going on. He has a lot going on but he loves the section and that is one way to impress me.
Jed is one of my very good friends on here who I talk to regularly like you. Plus, he is just plain awesome!
So in closing, it appears he is a selfless person and is open to helping others with their issues and is a very hard working MOD. I dedicate this spotlight to Jed in the hopes that after reading this everyone will see Jed and see his good works. Hopefully Jed realizes how special he truly is and how lucky we are to have him as a friend and MOD in Literature & Writing and General Discussion.
