Posted on April 15th, 2008 in Interviews, Roblox Staff | 29 Comments »

Sirloin at the Cave

I recently got an interview with the well-known Roblox forum moderator, Sirloin! Sirloin has been working as a Roblox forum moderator for about half a year, now. I’m really glad he let us at Roblox News interview him. Thanks a ton, Sirloin! Enjoy the interview!

WonkaKid - How did you find Roblox?

Sirloin - I found Roblox on a game site. I forget which, but I almost never saw it, the box was so tiny!

WonkaKid - How does it feel being able to help supervise the Roblox forums?

Sirloin - It feels good. I actually enjoy deleting the threads in a forum raid.

WonkaKid - Is Roblox your favorite online game? If not, what is?

Sirloin - Yes. The only other online game installed onto my computer is Kart Rider. But that doesn’t usually work…

WonkaKid - Who is your favorite Robloxian other than yourself?

Sirloin - Oh, tough decision… but if I could only pick one, I’d have to say Koopa. He’s an awesome guy. Just awesome. Next is Are92, and FFJosh. They’re awesome, too.

WonkaKid - What would you rate Roblox on a scale of 1-100?

Sirloin - I must say that a lot of things are missing. I give it an 82.
