An Interview with LazyKernel
Hello everyone, happy new year. With us this month we have one of the Finnish noobs Kernel.
Thank you all for the question submission, and Kernel for the quick answers. You were a wonderful guy to work with, hassle free and really really speedy

This month we have 99th Hybrid's Hoops by The Rubens. The cinematics are awesome. As the forefront of RSMVs, 99th has always sought creative, out of the box ideas for RSMVs instead of the plain old yellow text and emote types we all know and love. Since JaGex fixed the orb of oculus, he has used it to great effect.

2016 was a big year for Clan Quest. At the start of the year we - as clan leadership - set out some goals for the clan, and I think we can say that we are happy with where we have taken the clan over the past twelve months. In short, we wanted to return to our core clan values, and make those clan values accessible to more people more easily.
Early last year we reopened recruitment. We went back to our older system with sponsors and Guardians. This new system has stemmed growth, but we have maintained clan member numbers over the year, and everybody has settled into the new system.
We also started using Discord as communication channel. In just a few months it has grown into an important backbone of the clan, and is being used for day to day communication, events, and not to forget... memes. Discord is a great complement to the offsite to complete our out-game communication, and I am excited to see further growth and new opportunities using Discord.
A goal we did not fulfill this year is the completion of the new offsite. This is still being worked on, and we are hoping to bring it to you early 2017. From this new hub, we are hoping to expand its use, and make it the new entry point to the clan, for both interested guests and returning members. If you have ideas for the website, or wish to contribute, feel free to drop me a message.
We also returned to the old ways of celebration. As Clan Questers, we celebrated our seventh birthday in real Clan Quest style. As a nod back to the prime time of the ETU, we left cabbages wherever we could, and made sure that the world knew of Clan Quest's birthday. We had a great month of events in December as well: set up by Tyco Elf, but helped by a group of clannies, we had an event every day to countdown to Christmas.
Last year was a year full of highlights, but we also had some bad news to deal with. In the run-up to Christmas, we heard that one of our long-time clannies, Sinistral, was very ill. Just before Christmas, the family made the hard decision to remove him from the ventilator, and after a last fight, he passed away. Sinistral was known to many of the older members as a cheerful and involved person, and we were devastated to hear from his passing. I cannot say it better than Draz did, so to read more or to find out how to send support to Sinistral's family and friends, check out this thread.
The last thing about 2016 I want to mention is the continued dedication of many of our clan members. The clan is run by volunteers who spend significant parts of their free time to create this amazing place to which you can withdraw after a long day at work or school. Let us all consider their continued effort and be thankful for another year of service, and don't be afraid to show how grateful you are by just saying: "thank you, noob".
And with all that, 2016 has really come to an end. After 366 days and one whole second, we can once again look towards the future. No matter your personal circumstances in 2016 or 2017, I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a happy, healthy, and heroic 2017!
