The key here is ... "be yourself" .. and have fun in what you are doing...Interesting that I match quite a bit like Erik... I had started helping around in different forums worldwide... and had real satisfaction in that. I became mvp in 2005 and then in 2006... which really helped me to grow as a person and in knowledge, and came to know more smart people around.
But... this place is really fun and I was called for interview here and I was bowled over by the people here. And now being part of them I just find what I thought when I was givin my interview was right... and that is .. Passion , positive attitude and finally.. be yourself and do not pretend.
