Re: GMT Magazine - January 2009 Edition
The 3 board members answer your questions in this edition of GMT Mag Q&A
You're stuck on a hot air balloon, which board member would you throw over the side and why?
Gigi: Those extreme stuff annoy me, so I definitely won't go on a hot air baloon. lol
Poiree: Probably Gigi. Since I am so nice I would ask them which one should I throw out and I suppose Sean's answer would be not to throw him and Gigi would probably just say: So I think the logical thing would be throwing Gigi
Now seriously, I don't think I am strong enough to throw any of them out It would probably be me who would end up flying down. After all they do say "ladies first"
Sean: Vanja, her head is so full of air she'd float. That also leaves the tour open so that more people can win
What graphic maker's skill would you like to have that you don't have?
Poiree: I am not sure if I should name a maker whose skills I would like to have or just what I would like to be able to do in PS... I know this is not really a skill, but I think I really need more patience, especially when extracting pictures from backgrounds. I would also like to be better at deleting objects or watermarks from pics (but that requires a lot of the above mentioned patience)
Sean: I've always wanted to know how do work with videos. I never really bothered to try though. I'll have to ask Purplish's friend for help! It would be amazing to have a set of colouring that looked AMAZING with every graphic. But I don't even know if thats possible
What Grand Slam would you most love to win?
Gigi: Australian Open
Poiree: I have already won it but I must say Roland Garros. The reasons are that I have to defend my title there and show everyone who is the best. Besides that clay is my favourite surface so I would like to do good in the whole clay season this year.
Sean: Wimbledon. It's my home slam! But at the moment I'd settle for any tournament at all, let alone a particular one lol
For how much money would you streak at Wimbledon?
Gigi: Not less than a million.
Poiree: I will say there is no amount of money I would do that for, but in case I actually get an offer I might change my mind I guess it would probably depend on who would be on the court at that time, too.
Sean: Is this Louisa's question, I asked her the same thing? Depends on how much I'd had to drink, we're talking millions though! Even then I really don't know If I'd so it. Does anyone know if you can go to prison for it?
What happens in the locker rooms before matches?
Gigi: Gurlfight? All those I'm better than you stuff...
Poiree: I usually sit bored and alone since a lot of players don't show up on time for their matches. And sometimes I mess with their equipment when they are not around. How do you think I would win so many matches otherwise?
Sean: I rush to get my graphics finished on time while Poiree moans at me that my avi doesn't fit the task and I ignore her and tell her she was to accept it
What do you think about having sex before matches?
Gigi: Sex is always good.
Poiree: I haven't tried it yet, but as soon as I do I will let you know.
Sean: Only when playng you
If you were to compare your GMT career with a WTA player's tennis career, who would you be?
Gigi: Nicole Vaidisova, has potential but can't deliver?
Poiree: This is a really hard one... I wonder who asked it I hate to say this, but probably Serena I wish I could have picked an ATP player though. The WTA tour is pretty much equal now so it is hard to pick someone.
Sean: Good question. I think maybe Kournikova, I can do most things even if I often pic the wrong shot (picture) and have no inspiration. But mainly because I have wins over all the top player but have never won a title, apart from doubles (Шована FTW ). I'd like to think I will fulfill my potential unlike her though. We will just have to see
Which WTA player would you like to be your one night stand and who would you pick for a long-term relationship?
Gigi: One night stand: Julia Goerges Long-term: Edina Gallovits
Poiree: Definitely none!
Sean: Well obviously I'm going to marry Ana and live hapily ever after. I wouldn't say no to a one night stand with Sorana, Alizé, Makiri or Marta though! and I'd push JJ off a cliff even though that wasn't in the question. lol
What kind of graphics (avi, banners, frees or wallpapers) do you think are your strongest and which ones your weakest point?
Gigi: I guess I can make all of them good, but i think my avatars come out the best.
Poiree: I think my weakest point are banners for sure. The problem with them is that you have a limit in size and sometimes the tasks require a completely diffrent format. I think I will have to pick the free graphics as my favourites. I think my avis and wallpapers are good too, but the problem with avis is that people usually prefer the simple ones so not much imagination is required there. I wouldn't put avis as my strongest point also because that is the format the makers are most equal in. Wallpapers are probably the most fun to make but they require more time (at least for me) so I hate doing them for GMT competitions and they never turn out as good as I would expect.
Sean: Great question. I think it varies for me thogh. Sometimes I like my frees other times I just can't think of anything. But I recon my banners are my strongest set as I don't mind blending, sometimes it annoys me when I make a graphic that doesn't fit the size well though. Avatars fraustrate me the most as I will sometimes make about 10 and can't choose which I like the most as it's hard to tell without comparing it to other peoples!
Who is nightmare opponent in GMT and why?
Gigi: Poiree cuz she's the best.
Poiree: Niya for sure. The competition keeps getting stronger though. Probably now everyone can beat everyone, but I think Niya is the only player I lost to more than once and her graphics are great and different than others'. I also have to mention I would hate having to face Iine: in a first round of a tourny. She is amazing.
Sean: Well the obvious answer here is Poiree. No matter how hard I try she always somehow goes one better than me. Though really she cheats as there are two of them and should start with a 0-5.9 deficit. She'd probably still win though I also don't like playing Heart because she double bagels me
Do you enjoy being a board member or you regret applying for it in the first place?
Gigi: It's cool.
Poiree: Although it can get tiring sometimes, I don't regret being in the board. Maybe I am a masochist but I really enjoy doing all this
Sean: I love being a board member. Someetimes it's really hard when there is a lot of work to do of there are dificult decisions to make because someone will always think you made the wrong decision. I like to think that I contribute a lot to the game though and do the best I can. Lets be honest the game wouldn't run without me lol
If you were to let one more person in the board, who would it be and why?
Gigi: I really can't say one, we have some really contributive players.
Poiree: I think Andreas. He helps a lot around the game, as long as I know he has never cheated when playing, he is online quite a lot and has given some suggestions to improve the game in the past so I think he would be a good GMT board member.
Sean: Ouch! Whoever sent this question is really mean, though after the ones I gave Niya I can't complain! I guess the person who would conribute most is Andreas. But I think there are lots of people who would do a great job (Medina, Sexysova, Droolv. etc...). It's hard to know how good people will be to be honest.
Thanks to Droolv. for receiving the questions and forwarding them to the board
