BiographyI first stumbled across Neo in June of '03 while searching for information on Mega Man Battle Network 3 for Game Boy Advance, which was scheduled for a release later that month. I was only thirteen at the time, and a very uncreative thirteen year old at that, which lead to an equally uncreative username modelled after a character named Zero from the Mega Man X series. Plain old "Zero" was already taken, so I slapped a few zero's on the beginning and end. Complementing the username was an avatar representing the 32-bit Zero, which oddly enough, only I seemed to think was cool. :(
I posted in the Mega Man Battle Network 3: Blue forum for a while, then moderated by AsianStriderX, who admittedly had me scared to break any rules. I guess I liked the site, because I was telling anyone who would listen that I had made 25 posts in only six days.=D My grammar wasn't swell, but I did use punctuation, and that's more than I can say for quite a few people on their first visit to the site.
Unfortunately, Neoseeker didn't keep my interest for long. I left the site in July, and probably didn't come back until December or January of 2004. It was only then that I realized just how big the site was and how many cool features it had. I started posting in a wider variety of forums, namely Final Fantasy X and Kingdom Hearts 2, although I was still participating in the Mega Man forums.
Towards the end of 2004 I applied to moderate the Mega Man Battle Network 5: Team Colonel forum, but unfortunately, I was running up against Mega Man forum whore protomanexe07. I almost retracted my application the second I found out he applied, but didn't, and was denied. I was disappointed, but kept posting in the forum.
Proto soon decided he needed a co-mod and turned to me. I was thrilled, accepted his offer, and was approved by Moderator Requests. Looking back at my posts then, I was an idiot and I'm somewhat surprised I was accepted. Anyway, I stayed there about three months, but activity had slowed down so I decided to step down. It was barely in need of one moderator, much less two. In those three months I had also moderated the Dynasty Warriors 3 and 4 forums in the mad thread-deletion spree known as the SiteWide Cleanup (and inadvertantly deleted Deathman48's first post while doing so).
I then joined the Half-Life portal staff as a news reporter a few months later [before Portals were cool (H)], and began working on the MegaMan NeoPortal after that.
I got promoted to the Mega Man Battle Network 6: CyBeast Gregar forum in the summer of 2006 and joined the Halo portal later that year.
And here I am today.=D Oh, I've also made a few friends along the way who've made my stay here quite enjoyable. I've made a ton more friends than those listed below, but I ended up losing contact with most of them over time, so the ones listed here are the current friends.

In 2007, I left the site "for good," and now I only sign on a few times a year to make sure someone isn't trying to reach me through NeoPM and give me their life savings or something. If you want do that, by all means, be my guest.
If you're still reading this, I wish joy and peace for you! "May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the holy Spirit."

First and foremost I'm a Christian and I'm unapologetically sold out to the God who makes all things possible. I'm also a normal kid who enjoys nothing more than spending time with my friends, who are probably the most awesome people in the world. I also enjoy solitude, although sometimes my definition of solitude includes yelling into the microphone on Halo 2 with two cool guys named Andrew and Manny. Neoseeker is not my life, and in fact I'm convinced it's one of the worst things I've ever done with my life.
I'm in college now, studying Chemistry at Baylor University while pursuing a minor in Religion.
I don't really have a whole lot of time to play video games anymore, but I still make time to play Halo 3, so add me as R3deemed if you want to get your butt handed to you on Xbox Live.
"However, I consider my life worth nothing to me, if only I may finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me the task of testifying to the gospel of God's grace."
