Research Bank

Hi all, I thought it would be nice to have a thread where we could list our areas of expertise or specialist knowledge. Perhaps you work in an interesting industry, or maybe you are at school and study a cool topic, or maybe you have a degree in something super-interesting or unique? Hey, it could even just be a fun hobby that you are really into!

I think it could make for a useful resource for anybody looking to oh I dunno, do research for a story, or just an opportunity to learn something new by then starting a PM conversation with another member :blush:

So hey yo, whadda ya know? :grin:

I guess I’ll start.

I have a degree in Screenwriting, which might be the stupidest thing to have a degree in because it does me absolutely no good :joy:

But I do know a thing or two about story writing, if I do say so myself :grin:

Add to that a passion for filmmaking. I’ve a little bit of experience in this, having worked on a couple of indie productions here in the UK.

I have been told by multiple teachers I am apparently “amazing at writing opinion essays”. Sure

I do have an eidetic memory, which I think is much more interesting.

Well, since you mentioned story writing, I have written a few short stories myself. I may post them here one day, however quite a few need to be…translated

If I’d have had a cup of tea to my lips reading this, I’d have just broken my work laptop.

BSc Honours Degree in Games Development and Design. Made a few projects here and there. Come great in understanding game logic and working out how things work when playing a game. And finding the flaws and how to fix them.

Same here (main reason how I blitzed the HD collection so fast). As a kid before I had the internet, I would read where every collectable would be in a library and then go home and get them all. Comes in very handy with remastered games too, I don’t need a guide as I already know. However I have found out that I cannot control what I want to remember, only if I (as in my brain) think it would be of interest to me. Always a clause…

What would be your porn name?

Why are the words “regular” and “purgatory” coming into my mind . . . could it be the direction this thread is going?! @JaM_47 - j’accuse!

Materials research scientist, degree in chemistry, PhD in surface physics. Basically a chemist that can speak some physics, more than enough to annoy the physicists and be useful in my role.

I sure hope not. This thread could be a goldmine for research…
