At the moment of the registration i have heard a song of "The Persuader". I know - very boring =\

Thomas or Tom and i'm 27. (damn, i'm f%*$ing old)

Where are you from and what do you like best about being there?
I'm from Dresden in Germany - i really like the saxon dialect =)

What do you do to keep the bills paid?
I'm an apprentice media-designer and at night a DJ. d:)

What do you do in your spare time?
DAMN what a stupid question - i'm choppin hrhrhrhhr

How did you find PSC, and what do you like most about the site?
A friend told me from PSC and now i'm here. I really like to get feedback for my work here and it's very nice to get feedback from soooooo good people here. So i find more and more motivation to go on and try to do some things better.

If you could change one thing at PSC, what would it be and why?
The entries should be posted or shown anonymous till the contest is over. So all have the same chance to get votes. I think u know what i mean and why. ;o)

Is there any other information about you would like to pass on?
Anything else? Uhm no - then i'm happy. :D

How many hours per week do you spend on PSC?
Dont ask me - it's definitely too much i think.

What other sites, not Photoshop related, do you like to surf?

What tools do you use to chop?
PC 2,5 GHz pentium 4 - 1024 MB RAM - hp1702 17" Flatscreen - Geforce4 or so - WinXP Professionell - Photoshop CS2

What gets your creative juices flowing, how do you create a masterpiece?
I lean me back and my mind sends pseudo-random signals to my hands - that's it :D

What inspires you?
life - friends - experience - some ppl here

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?

What style of chop do you prefer to create?
That's different i don't prefer something.

Filters, brushes and techniques: Which do you use, and not use, and why?
Pfffffff this question is too extensive for me and my bad english.

When do you know that you have it just right, or is it constant changes up until, or after, you post?

What is the limit to what you will chop?

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

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

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?

What is your preferred resource for outside source images?

In your opinion what makes a good chop?

Do you have a system to get things started?

Have you ever completed a chop and then decided not to enter it in the contest? If so, why?

After you finish your chop do you just post it or seek opinions of family and/or fellow choppers first?

If some one finds a fault in your work do you change it or stay with what you posted?

What qualities do you look for when deciding to vote on a chop?

Some member prefer not to vote for filtered chops or animations. Is there any particular style/type of chop you won't vote for?

Time is always a factor, how much time do you spend on a chop and how much time is too much?

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)

What chop of yours did not do as well as you expected?

What do you consider your best chop so far?

What do you consider your worst chop so far?

Who is your favorite chopper out there and why?

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

What is the best chop of all time?

Do you have any other PSC related comments to add?
