About

There’s a little bit of info about me on the home page, however, there are still a lot of things people might wonder about me.
So there’s some of those questions answered in a Q&A type of way, just because it’s nice and easy to read.

Q: Which other platforms and places can I find you on?
A: There’s a thing on the right (or the bottom if you’re on mobile) with some buttons that lead to most of the places I’m around on.

Q: I think you’re awesome! What can I do for you?
A: 
Well, first of all: Thanks a lot! It’s awesome that you want to do something for me. But more importantly, there’s a couple places you can go to give something back to me:
1. You can join my Discord server and just chat with everyone there! It always makes me happy to see people talking and having fun.
2. You can support me on Patreon! You will make an automatic monthly payment to me of an amount you choose, and you can get some cool stuff in return! Check it out!
3. You can buy me a coffee on KoFi! You spend a little money once and I can buy a coffee from it! Mmmh.. I love coffee.
4. You can buy me something from my Amazon Wishlist! As I live in Germany, it’s a bit annoying to access that page in other countries, but just click on the item you want to buy and then change the .de in the link to your respective one.
Again, thanks a lot if you do any of those things!

Q: Why are you called “Ellpeck”?
A: Obviously, Ellpeck isn’t my real name, because that would be ridiculous. It’s actually a name accidentally given to me by a friend of mine. Let me explain. When I was little and my english skills were lacking, I created a Youtube account called LetsPlayEveryGames (don’t even try, it’s gone) on which I made crappy gaming videos. When I made a Minecraft account, that name was too long, though, so I made it into an acronym: LPEG. The friend I mentioned then tried to prounounce that without knowing what it actually meant, and he did it by just pretending it was one word: LPEG.. L-PECK.. Ellpeck.

Q: Gender?
A: I was surpised when people started asking this. Though it’s understandable with today’s openness about gender and stuff. Anyway, I’m male. Biologically and mentally.

Q: Age?
A: Currently 18. Years, obviously. But I’ll probably forget to change this after my birthday, so maybe I’ll be #forever18.

Q: What do you use to code?
A: For Java, I use IntelliJ IDEA by JetBrains, because in my opinion it’s the nicest and cleanest IDE that exists for Java. Tried Eclipse and NetBeans, but I just wasn’t really happy with it. Don’t hate on people that use a different IDE though, it’s just personal preference, kthx.

Q: How did you learn to code?
A: 
By watching a lot of tutorials and copying and looking at a lot of other people’s code. For my first couple of Minecraft mod attempts, I just exactly copied what people did in their tutorials without understanding what it actually meant, which was pretty horrible. Also, I tried learning modding before learning Java, which is never a good idea.

Q: Are you on ForgeCraft?
A: Yea.

Q: What’s your sexual orientation?
A: I like cute guys.

Q: Are you in a relationship?
A: No. And I don’t plan on changing that any time soon.

Q: Are you a nerd?
A: Probably.

Q: Why do you post poems?
A: I’m sad and depressed a lot, and I write poems to deal with feelings and stuff like that. I post most of the ones I think are at least decent-ish, though I’m rarely happy with the stuff I make which makes it hard for me to judge if any are actually good or not.

Q: What’s your job?
A: I don’t have a job right now. If you have an offer though, let me know! I could use some more money :^)

Q: Are you going to school?
A: I’m going to university studying computer science.

Q: I found a bug in Actually Additions!
A: Me too thanks.
