How long have you been playing online?

Since about 92


How much time do you currently spend online, on a weekly basis?

Yikes!!!!!!! I don't think I want to count. Let's say 40 hours plus!!


How did you learn about EliteLeague? And when did you join?

Well I was playing in another league. Had a confrontation with it. Went and played dominoes in other rooms. Came across a spam from Card_chik. That was March 18, 2001. I liked it a lot.. Especially not having to wait on a whole round to finish, before going to next game. That was a major selling point for me. I went and found my friend Chicana323(now HA of Lity) and said "you have to check this out!!!!!!! NO WAITING for next round!!! Well on March 23 Chicana323 became a JrTD.


When did you first become a Staff Member at EliteLeague?

I became a JrTD on March 24,2001. At that time my training consisted of an admin page link, we have came a long way!!!!!


In your opinion, what makes EliteLeague different from other Leagues?

As you can tell , the no waiting on whole round to finish. But then I realized that these people were nice!! The lobbies are held to a high standard in Eliteleague. There is no comparison. These people in Eliteleague are my friends. Everybody here is always trying to improve. From the top to the bottom.


Do you administer any real-life competitions?

I have coached a lot of soccer. We went to more than 40 tournaments in one season. (for an under-10 team, that is amazing) And they all held together!


What do you do in your time away from Elite?

I spend all my free time at our ranch. I love to go hunting. I am a very avid hog hunter.


What is your career history at EliteLeague?

Well, I am stuck on doy. I have been in every position in doy. Went through several HA's. (sorry for all the problems guys) I have TD'd in checkers, and my last venture from doy was as HA of pooly. (I am the worst pool player in Eliteleague history, just ask homie!) My greatest achievement was in the ELIC doy in which I was runner-up. There were several games in that tourney that I was actually shaking (thanks a lot, gbg0001)


From a staff perspective, what makes EliteLeague different from other leagues?

Plain and simple--- "A STAFF YOU CAN TALK TO" The powers that be have always listened to me, regardless how horrible my suggestions were. This league is based on good ol' Morals!! My goal is to give the players a fun, exciting place to play. Without all our wonderful players , we would be nothing.


What would you tell a prospective member who is trying to choose between Elite and other, similar leagues?

This is simple,Try us out!!!!!!! If they were in any other league, they will know we are truly ELITE.


Any last word to our readers?

Eliters, thanks for all the great times. This has been a huge stress reliever. Elite has helped me keep my sanity.

Finally, I would like to thank Flawed_pur_fection02, Pmroadrunner2, and Aluve2008 who have stuck with us through thick and thin!!
