Top 25 Players By Join Year :D

A Huge Congratulations to Famous Shamus!

Famous Shamus has been chosen to be in this month's spotlight! It's awesome knowing that we have a Doctor in the house! (DVM) Congrats on the degree too!

Community Chatter
"Famous has such a great personality - always a joy to talk to either in chat or through messages!"
"My go-to for graphics. Thorough, reliable and timely!"

The Interview Questions!
Anyone who wins P.o.t.M. can answer as many or all of the questions as they feel comfortable answering!

......HP Questions......
1. How did you first learn about us?
I don't remember (it's been a decade!) but I migrated from Horseland after it's...downfall?

2. What is your favorite thing about HP?
The players! I've literally made some of my best friends here--we've never met in real life, but talk all the time on and off of HP--some of them for literally almost a decade. I also love getting graphics from people!

3. How long have you been playing for?
July will be 10 years (holy crap)

4. How did you come up with your player name?
Shamus was my first horse. I was younger when I had him and Famous out came Famous Shamus

5. What is your favorite breed of horse or dog to train?
Belgian Draft Horses by far! Favorite breed inside the game and in real life.

6. What caused you to pick the breed(s) you train and breed?
I love draft horses in general. I think I went with Belgians because I worked with four Belgian Draft Mules that I adored, so I went with their horse version :-P

7. How do you come up with names for your animals?
Oh lord. I have so many different animals on here. Some of them are themed after movies or tv shows I like, some are names or places in the animal's country of origin, and then some are just random.

8. What are your current goals on HP?
Current goal is to get my one mare to 7mil before retirement; long term goal is to get a 10miller!

9. Do you have a favorite animal? (It can be your own or another player’s you admire!)
Okapi are my favorite!

10. Who’s your go-to graphic artist or coder? Are there any services you offer?
I loooove Amberellie's work. I don't have a go-to coder only because I don't get coding done a ton. I offer horse and dog graphics.

11. What is your favorite Site-Wide yearly event?
Mascot contest because I love seeing the graphics that come about for that because they're always next level. I also enjoy the scavenger hunt even if it sometimes makes me curse at my laptop in frustration. lol.

12. What other contests or activities do you usually participate in?
The easter egg hunt! Occasionally forum contests too.

13. Do you have any training or breeding tips to share?
uhhhh.....I usually breed my animals 1 week before retirement so that if I accidentally forget I have a week of cushion for my brain lapse lol. Training wise, don't do what I do and have 400 animals without enter all because it will consume your life haahha

14. Which seasonal layout art is your favorite?

15. If you could change one thing about HP, what would it be and why?
Hmmmm honestly I don't think there's anything; I enjoy the way it functions.

You guys know this answer already lol. Movies, I love everything Marvel and am re-watching them all as I type (currently on Guardians of the Galaxy Vol II).

I also started Vampire Diaries and that's really good so far.
