Dai M'Hael Interview
How long have you been a member of TV.net?
Since 2004, but I joined on the Ez-Boards just before the final crash and TV.Net switching to the current setup
How did you discover TV.net?
I was rereading the books, wanted to do some research on the Forsaken, found the library.. it took me a couple of weeks to discover the online community behind the library..
Beyond the WoT books, what other authors do you enjoy?
Tolkien, George RR Martin, Feist, Eddings, Modesitt.. generally most of the sci-fi fantasy genre..
In what capacity, or with what projects, did you assist TV.net in order to be raised?
Ohh it's been such a long time I can't really remember, but I did a project with Ogier I think it's in the library somewhere and was a mod of CE as well around that time.
What do you enjoy doing in RL?
Being with my family, playing with my daughter, playing world of warcraft.. the usual things..
If you could change one thing about TV.net, what would it be, and why?
Hmm.. don't really think I'd change too much about the site.. it works well for me and will continue to do so if we don't think everything about it is broken and needs changing.

Ohh good question.. I'd have to look it up to be exact.. but probably about 2 years ago.. give or take a few months..

Because that's where my friends where and those were the people I spoke to most of all.
- How was your time as Citizen/Recruit/Soldier?
Not very.. I lurked quite a bit before I finally decided to join.. then I spent a couple of weeks as a citizen and moved onto recruit.. spent some time at that level.. failed my Soldier test first time round.. That thing is hard.. :P Then was a Soldier for quite some time.. and finally got raised
- How long have you been a member of TV.net?
Ohh I joined before the last major board crash.. thought I would like this place, then about a week later it crashed.. LOL.. took a while for them to get setup on the boards we currently use.. but I'd say just over 3 years as a member I guess..
