Featured User results began to be recorded in 2012, even though archives show that Featured User interviews were being done as early as 2010, adopted from Sonic News Network. Gamedezyner is the first user to have been recorded in the wiki's archives and the only one known to have won that year (2012). There were no other winners until January 2013.

As one of the most popular people here in our community, Haunted Alchemist is someone who needs no introductions. For the younger generation of users, she's one of the wiki's top artists, acclaimed for her character creating skills and her commitment. Many of her articles have been featured over the past several years, including most recently Phantom the Mink. This is her third win as Featured User, in a poll of 9 different Users.
A: In all honesty? Chames; he’s a respected member of the wiki and we were extremely close when I first saw the poll. It’s a pleasant surprise to have won, though O’:
Q2: How was 2018 as a year for you? How would you sum up your experiences last year? Also, what are your expectations of 2019? What are your predictions?
A: 2018 was really eventful for me - graduating high school, starting university, making new friends, joining new hobbies...I’m looking forward to 2019 though! I don’t know what to predict but I can only hope for good things to come; it’s the least we can do, yeah?
Q3: How would you describe your personality? Are there any special traits or virtues that you think make you stand out from your social environment?
A: Ideally I’d say that I’m a strong person who works and studies hard but...that isn’t very true hahaha. I’m more of an annoying sibling. I don’t necessarily think it’s fair for me to say what makes me stand out since I’m sure others share certain traits, but if I had to note one thing it’s the level of care I put into things. Art, writing, work, presents, sometimes even social interaction...and sometimes I go overboard with the other things.
Q4: Name 1 person from the wiki that: 1. You consider your best friend. 2. You admire the most. 3. You would like to get to know better. 4. You would like to get featured. 5. You miss and you would like to see them return.
Q5:Are there any hobbies or talents other than drawing that you have?
A: Hoo, most of my friends at this point know that I'll jump at any chance to talk about ball jointed dolls - that's where most of my energy is going right now. It's definitely not a hobby for everyone but I enjoy it. I also collect Transformers and other action figures!
Q6: What is your favourite holiday of the year? What do you do at that time?
A: Christmas! Well, more of the season rather than the specific date. It's an overwhelming time of the year but I go out with friends, head to their parties, shop for and gift things to them, and just...enjoy life. Good vibes all around, as generic as it is to say.
Q7: Who is your favourite philosopher?
A: I...don't have one. Never studied the subject. The most I know are from other classes I've taken, but while I know a handful of names, I don't necessarily know enough about them to pick a favorite.
Q8: According to your opinion, what is the greatest good modern man should strive for?
A: To be their best selves while also not being a jerk. ...that's all I really got.
Q9: Which characters are you mostly anticipating in the new Super Smash Bros. game as downloadable content and which would you like to see in the future?
A: Oi, Joker for sure. Me and a number of folks on here are fond of Persona after all - can't wait to see what he's got up his sleeve! ...wonder what his skins'll look like...
Ah...another Sonic character would also be nice. I haven't been paying any mind to any leaks or news, so I'm not sure if that's even possible, but I'd be excited if that did come true.
A: Oh wow, the idea of being an engineer seems so far in the past now...I dropped that idea after realizing how I wouldn't be happy being one. I'm good with maths and science, but that doesn't necessarily mean I enjoy it. I'm looking into architecture and real estate management now! The former because design, and the latter because crazy housing market, heheh.
Q10: Where would you like to work in the future? What are your professional goals? Are you still considering of becoming an engineer?
