Here comes the next installment of Article Spotlight, where hipster articles are made mainstream!
You may notice that the list appears to have been cut in half this time around. This was a decision made by Minato and Skull, who both agreed that users were less likely to read all of the articles on a long list. So for now on, the Article Spotlight will be featuring four articles instead of eight!
The next set of articles will be spotlighted on August 2, 2015!
Editors: Minato Arisato00 & TheSkullWolf

Greetings, friends, family, and editors! Guess what time it is? That's right, it's tiiiime for Featured User! I'm your host, TheDarkMantis15! :D
This month, we have a returning guest - HauntedAlchemist, previously known as HauntedPhantom! Having previously won Featured User, she's definitely made her mark here! Her artwork and characters are certainly notable and fun to interact with, in my opinion. When asked about how she felt about being Featured again, she answered:
"I'm certainly very honored, especially considering how this is the second time I have been featured. This place really has done a lot more for me than I had expected."
And with that, let's do this!
# 1. Q) How did you become a part of the Sonic fandom?
- A) It's a rather...odd story, to be quite honest. I was never a fan of the show (surprise surprise) and I didn't really touch any of the video games aside from Sonic Riders, even today. I suppose my older brother more or less dragged me into the franchise, and while he grew out of it I still happen to like the art style and all.
# 2. Q) Do you have any best friends here? If so, can you tell us who they are?
- A) 'Course I do. Minato Arisato00, TheSkullWolf, and TheDarkMantis15 (...or you, since you're interviewing me) are essentially my besties, I love all three of you to death. PowerMouse and Journey125 are also real close to me too.
# 3. Q) Can you remember any moment where you basically felt like "HECK YES! WOO!" ?
- A) On this wiki...? To be quite honest, I'm not sure. It's not that hard to make me happy, aha, so I suppose small things like finishing a drawing makes me feel that way.
# 4. Q) Is there a particular moment from a video game, book, or movie that you remember fondly?
- A) It's pretty difficult for me to chose just one moment from a book, considering how I read so many, heh. The church scene in Kingsman killed me when Harry gave his reasoning as to why he wanted to exit the building. There was also the McDonalds moment too.
# 5. Q) On the subject of internet personalities (Markiplier, jacksepticeye, yamimash, etc), which would you say is your favorite, and why?
- A) Markiplier, hands down. I love how he actually stays in touch with his fanbase, and at the same time he's hilarious and has a good heart.
# 6. Q) If you were one of the people working on the next Sonic title, what would you be doing?
- A) Sleeping. ...I really don't care for the franchise, ahahaha--you can shoot me now.
# 7. Q) Out of all your articles, which would you say has the most work put into them?
- A) Oh god, Saffron the Jackal, hands down. I kept on changing her. Even today I don't think she's as good as my other characters, but I'm happy with what I have...for now. Phantom the Mink is a runner up.
# 8. Q) Are there any careers you are looking into in the future?
- A) No clue. I'm considering an engineer (wow I'm so stereotypical) but I'm not completely sure. A lot of people are convinced that I want to be an artist or an animator, but that's truly a mere hobby, and will never be anything more than that.
# 9. Q) Outside of the Sonic franchise, are there any series that you enjoy?
- A) A lot, the biggest ones being Transformers and Lord of The Rings/The Hobbit. I'm currently being dragged into Assassins Creed.
# 10. Q) Final question - what is your opinion on turtles? (inside jokes ftw)
- A) Turtles are fantastic! Everyone should agree that the world revolves around turtles. People that don't are meanies. There better not be any meanies around. I for one love turtles! They're amazing. Especially in soup.
Congratulations to our new Featured User! Who will our next Featured User be? Let us see!
