DanielS - Moderator

Head Quarters:  Enniskillen. Northern Ireland

Tunes::  My taste is all over the place. I like anything from hardcore, trance, techno to heavy metal to traditional Irish.

Books:  I enjoy buying books about nutrition and fitness and then complaining that they just repeat the same garbage over and over. I’ll learn not to buy them some day.

Quality Movies: Kickboxer, Legionnaire, Universal Soldier, The Expendables (spot the theme yet?) Also any film with Arnie in it, even Hercules in New York solely for the “bear” fight.

I’m most looking forward to seeing Deadpool and Ip Man 3. I’m a big fan of Donnie Yen’s portrayal as Ip Man. I’m into most martial arts movies especially those with Jackie Chan,

Tony Jaa (Ong Bak) or Jet Li.

On the Box: NCIS, Sherlock, Elementary, Forever, Dexter, QI, Have I Got News For You, Mock The Week, Family Guy, American Dad, DBZ (never too old to watch it) and loads more.

Awesome Sports: MMA, Rugby, Kickboxing, Football.

Where I spend my time on the tinterweb (when not here ): I used to spend a lot of time on different picture/message boards but recently my time online is spent trying to learn more about networking for a course I’m doing.

Pets: My best mate Jake. He’s a 2 and a half year old dog and I’ve had him since we was born.

The World of DanielS: My world is about to change as I’m about to become a Dad any day now. Up until this point, I’d happily call myself a gamer. For MMO’s it’s the PC but I spend most of my gaming on the PS4 purely for FPS. No doubt that will all change soon. I enjoy learning new things and keep pushing to achieve new goals. I like to think of myself as a loyal person as evident by my continued support of Man United since Fergie’s departure.

Working in BT: I’ve been working for BT since 2009 and have a lot of experience with billing, orders but mainly technical help through our other social media platforms. I’m new to the mod team but you couldn’t ask for a better bunch of people to work with.

The World of StephanieG:

I enjoy reading (mostly fantasy novels), and I have been known to dabble in astronomy.

I must say I am bit of a geek as well when it comes to fantasy and sci-fi books and movies, and I have been known to dabble into anything ranging from studying German to playing the guitar (so far quite badly, but I’m getting there!), though at the moment my main personal interest is astronomy. I am originally from Italy so at least I have the Italian language covered pretty well!

Working in BT:

I have been with BT since the 25/09/06 (I still remember the date!) and I initially worked taking billing calls. Since then, I have gained experience in pretty much every other aspect of customer service working via all sorts of mediums (calls, emails, Live Chat, blogs, Twitter, and – obviously – forums). I have been a moderator on this forum since its Beta inception and I now work with SeanD as Community Manager. My time in BT has been challenging at times but I've thoroughly enjoyed the experience and wouldn't change it!

The World of Sean D:

I’m an avid Man United Fan and enjoy socialising, in the pub or otherwise.  I love to travel, both around Ireland and abroad.  I would one-day love to see the Aurora Borealis.  I enjoy anything technical and love tinkering with computers, I’m by no way an expert but that’s part of the enjoyment.  I am also a huge Halo fan and enjoy the online aspect of battling it out with people all over the world.

Working in BT:

I have been with BT since 2006 and thoroughly enjoy my time here.  I started out in broadband sales, helping customers place orders when they were unable to do so online.  I have also worked on the old BT Shop Sales, Customer Services, doing orders and billing and BT Business live chat.  I started working on BT’s Social Media programme in 2008 and have been a moderator since the old Beta forum.  I am now one of the community managers and absolutely love my work.
