I'm laying down in a comfortable bed, feeling the heat from the blanket I pulled over my head. It's summertime and I just got home from my job, the depressive thoughts is killing my mood. From the TV you can hear the Discovery-channel having an ad for their show Moonshiners. The heat is unbearable, as I unscramble the blanket thats all over my body and head, I see it; in a distance, the blue LED light from my computer is lighting up a small path on the white walls. I catch my breath as my brain is literally pulling my body out of bed. As my feet touch the floor you can get the satisfaction of doing something, but not me.
As I take a few steps to the black leather chair next to my computer and sit down I see it.
A fresh breeze washes over me, as the gulp of water is heading down my throat I feel refreshed, I can do it. As my cursor goes to the Steam-icon at the corner of my screen. Doubble-click; here we go, where is nobody`? Can't see him. Ah there he is. Seing nobody´ today is like a fresh breeze a warm summer day, clean and innovative behavior from someone half my age, I'm amazed.
The first time I talked to nobody´ was probably a year and a half ago, he had recently added me to his Steam-friends and asked if I could edit him a short movie. Not a full breath from my longs exhaled before it became clear; Yes. Nowadays he's an admin at Xtreme-Jumps and we don't talk allot, but it happens. I don't usually accept random people to my list, but somehow that day I did. Was it intuition? But from that moment I knew he wasn't the usual teenager. Take a moment to read about his background, past and future.
Moxx: So hey nobody`, could you introduce yourself a bit to the readers?
nobody: Hey there! =) Of course, my name is Nikolay and I am a 16 year old teenager from Bulgaria. I love training a lot, playing football and all that.
Moxx: Sweet, I've seen some photos of you in the Picture-thread, you seem to be in good shape.
How did you get introduced to the climbing-scene itself?
nobody: Thanks a lot man, appreciate that. Well, I am not pretty sure how it happend to be honest. I remember it was in the early 2007, I randomly found some bulgarian kreedz server and I've joined. I met a lot of cool guys there, with whom unfotunately I lost any contact throughout the years.
Moxx: Being pretty new and young, in the "bigger picture" here at Xtreme-Jumps, how did all that happen?
nobody: That's quite an interesting question. I started recording demos, mostly trickjumps. In truth, I wasn't as skilled as many other players so I focused more on creativity. I've dedicated my 'geeking' hours in finding fun stuff and being inovative.Some people got to know me from the little clip you made for me,hehe. I still keep that one in my PC! Thanks again! About the 'bigger picture' part, maybe it all started with my forum activity, lol. Pheil, my finnish friend made a great movie for me, which fortunately made it to the frontpage. And some time after, I became a forum admin.
Moxx: I know there can be a very harsh tone when newcomers talk to old veterans, how do you feel about that? Anyone special that helped you move forward when others didn't?
nobody: Personally I am not happy with that, who could be? But there is not much we could do about it. Newcomers are not quite in touch with the system and all they do is to complain, instead of trying to understand things. I owe a lot of credits to pradd, chrizzo, zippow, cyclopp and boyblue. They were just great, I am really thankful for all that.
Moxx: If you get involved with the right people from the start, it's usually easy to get in touch with stuff, glad you had positive encounters. What about being an "outsider" rather than an "insider" in Xtreme-Jumps, any flaws or things in your mind that should change?
nobody: As I've mentioned a long time ago, Xtreme-jumps really changed my whole view of cs 1.6. Not knowing about XJ the game was pretty grey to me. I had a lot of fun times, of course but after awhile it got monotonous. When I found about Xtreme-jumps, I felt like I had discovered a brand new world which was just waiting for me. I've met a lot of people and just in a week or two, I felt like I was in a game I had never played.
Well, the only flaw of XJ in my opinion, not sure if it's flaw, are the delays which are inevitable at times. People should definitely try to understand that. I do not want to blame Vee or anyone who is checking demos and all that. I just think that if we somehow manage to make releases more frequently thing would change drastically. In a positive way, of course.
Moxx: Being me, I've seen allot of people come and go here at Xtreme-Jumps, and in my eyes you seem like a fresh, young, and very self-motivated person. What's your take on that, and how to you think you compare to the other admins?
nobody: First of, I'd like to thank you for that, Moxx. Well, yes, I am quite motivated when it comes to helping xtreme-jumps. I can't compare myself with the other admins since they are a lot more experienced than I am. I admire their job because I am aware how difficult it is. Yet again I want to state, people shouldn't be too harsh on them because it's a really tough job. After all they got personal life and they need time for that.
Moxx: So you've been involved in the Weeklys, and News-posts and other stuff here.
What do you enjoy doing; your favourite job. And what's something you dont like?
nobody: I like helping out with the weeklies, back when I joined the weeklie crew, I used to do the movie reviews. When it comes to something that is not my cup of tea, I guess it's a bit boring roaming threads, again at times. I haven't made many newsposts, actually just one but I hope that will change in the near future. :-)
Moxx: Okay, and living in Bulgaria and all, you probably get allot of shit from people online. Anything to say to them?
nobody: I actually don't blame them, we'll at least not all of them. I want to apologise for saying this but most of the bulgarian players are acting immature and they are used to type nonsense. I do not want to insult anyone with this but I guess we, the bulgarians should re-consider stuff before we post.
Moxx: All-right, time for some quickies; if your up for it?
nobody: That's my favourite part, hit me!
Moxx: Would you rather be at a sunny beach, or at home relaxing at the couch?
nobody: THE BEACH! Of course with plenty of hot girls to get around, hehe.
Moxx: Meat or Fish?
Moxx: Long-jumping or regular Climbing?
nobody: Regular climbing. I rock at longjumps, too. I do the 240 block easily..
Moxx: Comedy or Thriller? (And what's your favorite movie?)
nobody: Thriller. (Above the rim/Poetic justice, both are not thrillers but still )
Moxx: Okay, seem's like were hitting the end-point here, thanks for letting me talk to you for a while. Anything special to send the readers off?
nobody: Greetings to all of you :-) And please, try to understand admins! Also my special shout-outs go to: level2, pradd, elITe^, akM, boyblue, zythH^, zippow, chrizzo, zuveeh, k3g, faker, cyclopp, mmmsas, kaffee, zgooh, juleeeh, crush, bl1zz, theddy, markan, jusuuh, Punk^. Thanks for the lovely interview Moxx:, I had a great time.

Hopefully the new COO.
This is how news on XJ should be. Take it from the veteran moxxie guys. Don't do 2 liners news.
It's amazing how a guy who is in the business since the business itself still has the will to do such things.
People like these simply motivate you. Each and everyone of us have something to learn from such a rare piece.

You are right about most of the things and it really is a shame to write without thinking.
