How did you originally hear about Answers.com?
I didn’t actually hear about Answers.com per se; more of finding it on the Web while answer hunting. I found quite a few sites like Answers.com on the Web while looking for some information on cells for my science class. The next thing I know I’m in the great big family that is known as WikiAnswers!
Please explain your user name.
My user name? Well first of all, my real name is Dalamar which has nothing to do with my user name! ADHDSuperHero was something that a very good friend of mine came up with about 3-4 years ago, knowing that I had ADHD. I first used it on a site called Gaiaonline. Ever since then, I have used it with just about everything because I thought “Wow, what a cool name! Much better than Dalamar!”
What motivates you to volunteer your time to the Answers.com community?
Well first off I’m a secret agent, so I have to have a background job to throw off all the countless villains after my head! I already make millions of bucks from my five-star hotel resort in the Bahamas! Then I said: “Self, volunteer for this place. They need you.” And myself said “FO SHO, why not!” And…BAM! Next thing I know I’m a Supervisor in the midst of blocking countless spammers! >>dramatic effect<< Your wish is my command! So in short I just like to help with a lot of stuff – even when that means helping complete strangers.
What are your areas of expertise?
My areas of expertise are a little spread out in a big mushy puddle of skill. (best way to put it) To sum things up, I will try anything. If I’m not good at it, I’ll practice. But the things that I get a lot of “Good jobs” on is in my artwork and artistic mind. I always drew as a kid (making me sound older than what I really am) on my school work, on the desk and on the wall (got in trouble for that one). And when I first started, I knew I was horrible. It just goes to show you though that practice makes better (yeah, not perfect).
What is your favorite Answers.com feature?
My favorite/favourite feature is just the community of people that are spread literally all over the world – Africa, Australia, UK, Mexico, you name it! Sure there’s going to be the little party pooper here and there but it’s not perfect, and that’s part of what I clean up!
What has been the funniest question you’ve seen or your funniest experience on Answers.com?
Share a random fact (or two) about yourself.
Random fact # uno- My name Dalamar comes from an evil wizard in a book series called “The Dragon Lance Series.”
Random fact # B (LOL) – The day that Iron Man came out in theatres I skipped school to go see it, but don’t tell anyone now! Okay, I went with my dad to see it, but that still counts as skipping! (I plan on skipping school when Iron Man 2 comes out, too! LOL)
