Now Ye're Talking - to a Boards.ie Community Manager

OK, I'm slightly cheating in taking this on cause our other option we were hoping to set live this week is most likely going to be delayed till next week.

So, I am one of two Community Manager's on Boards.ie. I have been an employee of the company since March 2009 and a member of the site since before it started.

I'm happy to answer questions about me, the job, site and about the company, but I may not be able to answer everything.

I will start answering your questions tomorrow morning as I've got an event I'm talking at till 7pm and some other plans for the evening after that.

Who is your favourite troll?

Have you met any troll in the real world and you knew who they were and vice versa and how did they react?

Have you any plans to break the site again?

Do you help out on the tech side or is it responding to emails and adminesque duties?

Was the hack the most "interesting" thing that's happened during your tenure?

A question I also asked Gordon - Do you ever think you will leave Boards entirely - both professionally and as a poster? How/when do you ever foresee it happening?

Have you ever had to ban someone that you didn't really want to but had to due to the rules of the site?

If money was no option for the site, what's the first thing you would do?

Do you ever feel conflicted about the rules of the site, vs your own personal feelings on certain issues or situations? i.e. have you ever had to apply the rules against your gut feelings? Or does 'spirit of the law' take precedent?

How many people does boards.ie actually employ and in what kind of roles?

Who owns boards.ie?

How much would it cost to buy boards.ie??

Cheers.

What's the actual place you work like? Is it a small office or what? How many people are actually employed by boards? Thanks.

So aside from spending hours feeding all the hamsters what does a normal day in boards HQ tend to entail for you?
