How did you get your PSC nickname?
It was my female character screenname on Everquest back in the 90s. The suggestive female name meant I got a lot of free loot from the predominately tween male userbase on the game but the name did not inspire free votes at this site though :)

What is your real name and age?
Robert, 44

Where are you from and what do you like best about being there?
Columbus Ohio I live in the heart of the state shaped like a heart. I've had the chance to meet a number of PSCers in person because of their proximity too. Meeting in real life rocks!

What do you do to keep the bills paid?
LAN admin/desktop support guy...exotic sitter...I can't dance anymore :D

What do you do in your spare time?
take my kids to soccer, track and church events...and then there are those 100 or so unfinished projects around the house

How did you find PSC, and what do you like most about the site?
a friend/coworker told me about it...I like the way it was before it got all advantaged out. Waiting excpetantly each morning for the new pic to appear at 8 EST was such a fun time! In general there are some great helpful encouraging people here...only a few 'Richards' :)

If you could change one thing at PSC, what would it be and why?
Go back to those simpler times of PSC when 6 or 7 votes won the day :D

Is there any other information about you would like to pass on?
tag, you're it

How many hours per week do you spend on PSC?
recently '0' but I used to be on constantly

What other sites, not Photoshop related, do you like to surf?
Google is the only non intranet site in my history file

What tools do you use to chop?
PS7, CS, CS2 and still break out windows 95 MSpaint now and again

What gets your creative juices flowing, how do you create a masterpiece?
the Food Channel! anymore I let mi hombre's at Chipotele make the masterpieces

What inspires you?
anything not mentioned in James Lipton's aka Bernard Peevogue's uptight questions

Do you have a system? Does a chop have to be done a certain way following steps or are you a messy chopper and just go with the flow?
should be fun, anyone can do a head swap but if you do a head swap try to make someone smile with it

What style of chop do you prefer to create?
fun

Filters, brushes and techniques: Which do you use, and not use, and why?
I still haven't figured out that cutting tool that everyone says you need to learn to make clean...blah blah blah... well I don't get it. I spend a lot of time painting away things

When do you know that you have it just right, or is it constant changes up until, or after, you post?
it's right enough when I runoutatime

What is the limit to what you will chop?
I find my humor has run into the dark a few times...others reactions have told me so ... hence the trying to be more upbeat and fun

Are there any tips and/or tricks that you would like to pass along to less experienced choppers?
keep working at it

What is your favorite type of source image, and why?
anything

There is often talk about how the source is used and to what extent it should be. What are your views on all sources, outside source use and animations?
animation take so much time but its worth it because it is fun and satisfying to do

What is your preferred resource for outside source images?
google

In your opinion what makes a good chop?
salt and pepper, left uncovered and baked at 350 for an hour or 2...yeah I like mine jerky like

Do you have a system to get things started?
Coke-a-cola on ice...that just sits there until I'm done and then I notice that pool of condesation to the right of my mouse and wonder why I never took a sip

Have you ever completed a chop and then decided not to enter it in the contest? If so, why?
yep, because I thought it would get pulled...and I don't like making extra work for JMH

After you finish your chop do you just post it or seek opinions of family and/or fellow choppers first?
if my kids are around they give suggestions while I'm making it

If some one finds a fault in your work do you change it or stay with what you posted?
I used to change misspellings but I didn't know we were allowed to change our posts again...the option went away for a while

What qualities do you look for when deciding to vote on a chop?
if its cool or not

Some member prefer not to vote for filtered chops or animations. Is there any particular style/type of chop you won't vote for?
no I like to run through all of them for the day 1st and then go back and vote for my favorites...not many people do that...hell I haven't voted in months so even I don't do it much anymore

Time is always a factor, how much time do you spend on a chop and how much time is too much?
18hours is the most I remeber spending on a post but I learned a lot from it...5 minutes is the least I've spent but that was usually for an animation or joke in chat before chat was an advantage perk

We all love to get votes. Now are you a constant vote checker or do you just let it go and check once a day? (be honest)
I used to check throughout the day but got to the point that I didn't check for days

What chop of yours did not do as well as you expected?
I did a weather animation using the inside of a split piece of wood for the cloud formation... http://photoshopcontest.com/view-entry/97648/a-partly-grainy-forcast.html

What do you consider your best chop so far?
haven't done it yet

What do you consider your worst chop so far?
pick anything from my 1st 2 years

Who is your favorite chopper out there and why?
the202 he is technicallly awe inspiring and creatively heads above the rest of the pack...and Marcoballistic rocks too but he's never invited me to meet his mother-in-law like the202 has :D

What do you NOT like to see in a chop, and why not?

What is the best chop of all time?
http://photoshopcontest.com/view-entry/65879/display.html
