They are doing this on an AOB forum, and I thought maybe it'd be interesting here too! Every week, someone different is chosen for an interview, and everyone can ask that person questions in a thread dedicated to that person. Does that sound like a cool idea?

I hope those questions are not too personal.

Like 'have you ever cheated on your wife' or 'have you been born this ugly, or when did the accident happen'.

Well, so long as the questions don't come from the Sun, Star, or News of the World, you're okay...

For any questions that someone does not feel comfortable answering, they can just say I do not wish to answer.

I'd suggest we have a person collect all the names of people who want to go, or maybe we just throw in every current active member in the list one at a time, going by number of posts?? . . .

On the AOB forum that does this, the interviews are generally set to go for about a week, then a new person is announced. One time there was a week missed, and the interviews were kinda quiet. I don't know if we want a scheduled time frame like that, or if we want to be more loose.

a few rules should apply. well the one who is asked should have the ability to refuse a question or to not answer as it maybe is to private or so. And we all should respect that.

Well why not starting it. Any volunteers or suggestions ?

I was thinking of going by number of posts, and if that person doesn't want to interview, then go to the next person. But of course, we can go by the person who say they want to be interviewed first, then start on the post listing and ask people. I guess we'll make a new thread for each person. Guess we could start with johandeman as it is already okay with him. I should probably be the one to say something as at least a few people like this idea, but nothing is happening so far.

we should make a list (by number of posts is fine) and make clear/announce which week it's 'going to happen'. maybe make this sticky?

They do this on another board I am on... it's pretty cool. But there has to be some rules: no sexual harassment, no insults, no arguments, the usual stuff.

those rules goes without saying i think along with respect an d no offense. that are unwritten rules of the forums.

order by number of posts would be fine for me and there is always the way to not participate. nobody should feal that forced.

the startlist would be then:

bernd
gerd
darren
cassander
johan
christina
...

Each question you ask me, I'll ask back when it's your turn, so better think twice before asking me!

Chains can be fun as long as we're good about selecting some new people too and not just the main click. I remember in the old chain thread thinking it'd be forever before I got picked and then being suprised when Gerrit picked me. But in the wrong group, these things can hurt feelings.

It's very similar to the times when one was picked last in gym classes.

Luckily I don't think we have that kind of environment here, I don't think. So I'd actually change things and let RationalDreamer pick who comes next. It adds more suspense and excitement to never know who will be next and when your turn will come.

Hullo.
I was away in hospital getting £5000 worth of hi-tech gunk squirted at my shoulder which, apart from a big scar, is now fixed. So I'll await questions with both shoulders attached...

Hope you're feeling better now.

And can we let rouss choose the next person instead of going by post count? I think a chosen chain would be more interesting than silly post count.
