Hello and welcome to another User Interview! Last time I asked y'all for someone who is a Staff Member on our lovely forum. So now I present to you the amazing, the wonderful.... @Baymax!
Without further ado, let's get started~
Introduce yourselves
Hello, I am Baymax, your personal healthcare Hallyuplus companion. :poggers:

How did you learn about H+? Why did you join?
I think like the majority of the users here, I learned about H+ through OH back when the servers weren’t that stable and ended up migrating here when I saw a thread promoting it. I joined because I wanted to keep up-to-date with news and it was like a clean slate sort of feeling; on OH I was mainly a lurker and only posted in a couple of threads, but joining H+, I felt a bit more encouraged to be more active, so here I am now…

What is your favorite thing about H+?
It’s not too big and it’s not too small; it’s the right amount of activity for me even though it can appear like a ghost town at times but that weirdly gives me a peace of mind. I kinda like how people keep to themselves while at the same time try to make this environment a decent place for each other. People don’t really entertain those that try to troll or cause drama, and really just use this place as somewhere they can socialise and talk about things that interest them.

Which section and/or thread do you spend the most time in?
I think Events? But other than that, I find myself lurking around Film, TV & Video, Gaming and Anime & Manga; those are the sections I’d probably actively post in when I stop being lazy. The Anime & Manga section is pretty inactive but I occasionally post in the club that’s in the Union!

I used to spend a lot of time in the Seventeen artists threads to update them but then I got lazy, RIP. And I just had a look at them and most of those threads are dead, double RIP…

If you could be another user for a day who’d you be and why?
@Shop+, it can go either two ways... :darkkermit:
  1. Distribute the wealth amongst users so everyone is pleased to do whatever they want and get whatever they want. No more complaints about the disparity of the wealth here.
  2. Make people do treacherous things and betray each other all for some virtual coins.

Who is your bias and bias group?
I kind of like that group with the Seventeen members... my biases are Joshua, Shua, Josh, Joshua Hong, Hong Jisoo, Jisoo, Hong Josa, Joshy, Jushi, Shushu, Joshuji, American Hyung and Gentleman. (Sorry to the four non-existent members whose names I always forget).

sjkdhfjaf to answer properly: my bias group is Seventeen and my biases are Joshua and Jeonghan. I do have a soft spot for DK and Vernon too.

Favorite kpop/jpop/cpop mv?
Sorry, I'm really predictable and boring when it comes to favourite K-pop x or bias questions because 100% of the time it's just going to be Seventeen, that's all my brain has the capacity for...


Favorite non-Asian artist?
Honestly… I don’t really have a favourite non-Asian artist, I kinda listen to whoever depending on my mood but I’ll share the albums I’ve been listening to a lot recently.

How did you come up with your username?
I’m usually terrible with usernames so I end up using a character’s name… I watched Big Hero 6 and the film became an instant favourite of mine. Baymax (the character) was so cute and I liked the concept of the character, so I thought why not? I’ll go with Baymax!

Why did you become a staff member?
At first, it was because I had too much time (this was during lockdown); I already wasted a lot of time on the forums so I thought I'd make use of the time I'm here by becoming a staff member, which at the time was Shop+.

I quit staff for a couple of months when things started going back to normal but then re-joined staff as a Moderator because I felt like things went a bit stagnant and I wanted to try and change that. I've been on the forums since it first opened, so I like to think that I've built a lot of relationships with various members here and I wanted to try and be that person who helps speak for others if they have a suggestion or feedback regarding something but feel uncomfortable/shy to do so themselves.

Now I'm being held at gunpoint by @Stannie and @AKID❀KI at the events' headquarters... send help.

What’s your favorite thing you’ve worked on for H+?
I don't think I've really worked on much for H+ but I guess Hallyuversary+? It was the event that I got really involved in. It was quite stressful but rewarding.

What would you say to someone who's thinking about being a staff member?
Being a staff member has its up and downs, but like, on the more "serious/professional" note, just be useful, take initiative to do things and enjoy what you are doing.

Be active and actually have the time for it. It doesn't necessarily mean being active on the forums but being able to be at arms reach when other staff members need you. Communication is really important. Be willing to engage and interact with others without being prompted to; share your opinions and build on ideas instead of simply agreeing/disagreeing with something. Not everyone will always agree with you or like you, so be prepared to handle criticism and be civil.

Be able to pull your weight. There will be times where you will probably have to do things on your own due to other members of your team prioritising other things (like real life, suddenly disappearing, etc). Also, try and do more than what you sign up for - be a team player; sometimes there is an imbalance within teams, some people do more than others... Don't be that person who gets others to do your share and still be credited for it when you know you're around for it...

I know it ain't that deep and it's all completely voluntary but all that you do/say or don't do/say creates a portrait of what kind of person you are or can be to me - not just on the forums but outside the forums too. I'd like to know if I can depend on you, and I'm sure the members here would like to know if this forum is run by people who care about it.

(wow that sounded a lot serious than I intended it to be, I promise I'm not always like this asjdhfgaf)

And lastly...
What animal would be cutest if scaled down to the size of a cat?

I think a tiny walrus would look cute. :poggers:

That was a really good read, but I was expecting nothing less from Baymax! Great interview and great questions! :shablob:

Now, time to stalk the Anime & Manga Club thread that I'm only just finding out about despite being on the forum for over two years! :wut:

This was an eloquent and enjoyable interview, but that was to be expected! Thank you to everyone involved! Baymax's presence on the forum is quite valuable and I like reading about her thoughts/feelings/what-have-yous :poggers:
