Demonwench: Green and blue era? You mean there was another color before this loverly brown?
Lee'Mon: I've read the original polls... does that count?
Bastard: I remember when Mark "Bastard" Surfas used to do it. Oh wait, that's me. doh. Actually, here's some trivia... the poll started out as a hosted site called "Wampey's Census". And then we hijacked it. :)

Hellchick: I, like so many unfortunate souls, used to do the poll as well.
Ash: I, um, currently do the poll. But thanks to the awesome Poll readers, I haven't had to make up one yet. You all 0wn. Big time.
Demonwench: I feel for y'all, I really do...so I was nice and wrote a question...

Bastard: Spyke, You're fired! Great Job Ash!
Mynx: Oh, I have ideas, but everyone would make fun of me, so I just keep my trap shut. :D

 


Who are these people anyway?

Pappy-R is the PlanetQuake Site Director and ensures that all the coolness on PQ that happens, happens.
Hellchick is GameSpy's Action Genre Producer, or at least has convinced her friends that she is.
Bastard is the man that started it all, from PQ to GameSpy. Besides having kick ass poll comments, he's also our boss.
Ash is PQ's new Content Manager and is still searching for his "inner-l33t."
Mynx is our resident advice expert, knowledgeable about all sorts of topics that the rest of us are just too scared to touch.
Spyke does the PQ in Review, the PQ Mailbag, and your girlfriend.
Lee'Mon writes articles and editorials for PQ, which means he's really into finding things to complain about.
Demonwench helps with the Mailbag and helps give a fresh new perspective for how people suck.
