Odin, the veritable owner and webmaster of this site, was interviewed for the August edition of PCZone. Here's the interview transcript, thanks to Josh:
Mainstream recognition fun!
Name: Atle Wilson (Odin)
Job Title: IT consultant / web master of the Fallout fan site No Mutants Allowed.
Working on: nma-fallout.com
Experience: NMA is Odin's first fan site.
PCZ: How did you get started?
Odin: "I was browsing on the net looking for news regarding Fallout 2 and found No Mutants Allowed. I would check the Interplay forums regularly and ended up scooping the Fallout fansites, so I decided to offer my services to NMA."
PCZ: What's the pay like?
Odin: "I don't make a penny from the fansite, it's all done by choice, and the hosting is paid for by our ads. The DNS, however is paid out of my own pocket, so you could say I pay for the project."
PCZ: What does your job involve?
Odin: "We spend most of our time browsing forums for news about Fallout 3, which is currently in progress at Bethesda. As we've been around for some time, we've got to know most of the developers, and as such we get tips which we then post about."
PCZ: How rewarding is your job?
Odin: "The work in itself cqn be very rewarding as you bring a service to people who're looking for that product. But what's really rewarding is the fact that you get to meet alot of interesting people - developers or fans from Fallout."
PCZ: What's the most annoying part of your job?
Odin: "People expect you to know everything about the Fallout world. Plus, we get alot of people on our forum asking the same questions over and over again."
