    Now you're just bitching, and coming across like you have an oversized head.

    I'm quite surprised that you actually said that...

    Count me in I suppose if you do interviews, although I'm not that much of a trophy hunter anymore. Nonetheless if you ever feel like it.

    Geez, guys. He was kidding to begin with, hence the "/elitist post" at the end of it. Don't get all butthurt and learn to take a dang joke.

    Also, don't spam a thread with some stupid AI drama shit. Take it elsewhere please.

    So tell me, how long does it take you to get on your high horse every morning?

    EDIT: Wait, is this sarcasm? I... can't tell. Oh well.

    Not as long as it takes everyone else to put on their butthurt shields.

    But on par with the subject at hand, you should first ask In2's permission. Also, like said before it will get old quick but if you do plan on doing it just don't interview any member that comes your way either. Interview someone known around the site or that stands out.

    On Topic. I'm neither here nor there on this. I think it would be cool, just ask In2. At the same time like others have stated, it may become old quick and may interfere with other interviews. I'd like to see where this goes.

    It might get lost or it might not. But seeing as how this thread is supposed to be for people to post wanting to get an interview, but has turned into a drama-fest about various topics, I don't want the actual interview thread to be bogged down with people bitching and whining and turning that into drama for various reasons. I want the interview thread to remain clean and 100% on topic.

That's just a general idea.

    Also, I'd coordinate with Comp to see who shes interviewing so there is no crossover. I'd like to see the interviews brought back even if it was once a month or at the very least bi-weekly as they give us insight on other members we might not be familiar with.
    That changing it up a bit each week sounds fairly intriquing lol. Perhaps since IN2 originally made it.. see if he wants to continue. THEN ask Jack Krauser to assist with handling some interviews OR atleast a select variety and switch up eveyr other month or so who is in charge of it. Create one thread for eachmonth, containing 4 weeks of interviews. This could work? no..maybe Nero likes and saves effort fully and different ideas and group effort.

    That being said, yes, again, there will be some criteria but there will not be voting. I do not agree with voting because it becomes a popularity contest. Agree with that or not, it is how it comes off as. Nominating yourself is fine but it will not be the only way I pick people. It just helps me get peoples interest and a pool of ready to select interviewees.
    If interest dies out then it dies out, but, to address another point, I won't be making one new thread for each interview. I will be making one single thread that I will be locking after each interview is posted. This way people can browse the interviews as they see fit.

    This site currently has over 5000 members. If I do 1 a month the community will not get as big of a spotlight as it can or should. 1 a week is fine because that is 52 a year which is 1% of the entire current site population.
    I would agree with not locking it AS poeple will like to post their opinions and ideas. IF someone gets out of hand.. report and contact a moderator or admin . How i handle my business . I could agree with Davey that 1 interview a week will oversaturate it.. but maybe 2 a month or changing them up as stated before each week could work towards this. Maybe first month or two do a few extra and then save them for the next month afterwards and break it down.

    Your ballgame Lasombra and I'm down with this idea.. just try to not conflict with current interests out there like MotM and Elite Guide interviews .

    IMO...
    1. Post requirement (600 to 900)
    2. Reputation points (no more then 10)
    3. At least go into CB once is awhile and mingle
    4. Trophy count (at least be a level 7)
    I think if there are guidelines on how to get a weekly interview done, something towards what I posted should be consider. As long as credit is giving to In2, what is the deal really? He doesn't own the idea, he didn't copyright it, so why wait if the person that started in the first place isn't here to confirm or deny any rumors? It like only certain ppl on this site has the ability to do certain things and I feel that weekly interviews are part of that "Anyone can do it, just ask first for permission from Admin"

    I would be strongly against point number three. Out of the people who're active on the forums. A very small percentage of them actually use the chatbox.

    2. Reputation points (no more then 10) <---- WAY too low (but I agree that people must have above a certain amount of rep.) Plus, between 600 to 900 posts. Everyone is going to have above 10. And having below 10, means opening it up to people that just spam, with no one really liking the comments.

    3. At least go into CB once is awhile and mingle <--- Not everyone uses it anymore. I know I don't since the Apocalypse

    4. Trophy count (at least be a level 7) <---- Seems reasonable
    Just added my thoughts

    Work in progress. If the Weekly Interviews has a good chance of a strong comeback instead of a light fizzle, the ideals I suggested my not be prefect but it can get the new owner to think about who truly can be interview. It also keeps away ppl that just want an interview just to see there name up. The post requirement should be lower but you do have those ppl that just post nonsense about certain topics. My main goal is to lite a fire of thoughts under the ppl that are or will be involved with these interviews.

    Hey JayHawk, thanks for the words of wisdom.
    The post count isn't too big of a factor for me because the focus is on trophy hunting, and more emphasis will be put on their trophy card.
