Who is who on Nonoba? (Chris)

Interview with Chris.

Chris's Background:
One of the admins and greatest developers on Nonoba, Chris Benjaminsen is a 27 year old guy living in Copenhagen, Denmark. Along with Nonoba, some of his other projects are Barda, an isometric MMORPG in flash, and Racer Zulu a top down racing game for Flash. He is also the creator of the popular Flash game Multiplayer Asteroids, considered by some to be the best Multiplayer Flash game on the internet.

Q: Question by Darcie.
A: Answer by Chris.

Hi Chris, my name is Darcie, and as stated in the subject line, i was just wondering if you had time to answer a few short questions, for NCHYN, the nonoba help site? (in case you wanted to check it out)
Anything you can answer is appreciated! Thank you!!

Q: 1) How is life in Denmark?
A: Living in Denmark is great and we even had a bit of sun poking out the past few days!

Q: 2)The players are dying to know, Chris, when will there be an Multiplayer Asteroids 2??
A: Regarding Multiplayer Asteroids 2, my entire focus the past quite a long time have been focused on getting the basic systems for such games in place. This is slowly starting to happen now so you might only have to wait a few years now. ;)

Q: 3)Have we seen the end of the famed Fridge Magnets, and if not, when might it be fixed by?
A: Related to how these systems are back you will see that Fridge Magnets is back online!

Q: 4)What is the coolest thing you've ever made in Sand Toy?
A: Coolest thing in sand toys? Ugh, I don't know, think I once made a system that mixed, then separated water and sand again.

Q: 5)What is your favorite thing about nonoba? What is your least favorite thing?
A: My favorite thing about nonoba is definitely the community, I simply love to see how the site has grown from a very small community no one knew, to what it is today with several hundred people online in peak. Sadly the worst thing about nonoba is also its success. We where rather naive when we started out and thought that people might actually behave, this turned out not to be true, so we have had to set aside a lot of time which could have been used on making nonoba even better on simply trying to control those users who do not know how to behave. Related to that we will very soon be making some of our users admins such that there will always be someone around to make sure people don't act up.

Q: 6) Any more games in the works?
A: Lots of new games in the work, and they are all secret! ;)

Q: 7) What is the most annoying question you've been asked? The most annoying question?
A: Ugh, I don't know, but up there among them is "Can I be an admin? PLEASE?"

Q: 8)What would you like to see more of on Nonoba, and what would you like to see on helpsites like NCHYN?
A: I would definitely like to see more of NCHYN or similar pages, anything that simulates our
community is great!

Thanks for your time Chris!! ~~Darcie~~
