Get to know your staff!

Get to know your staff!
New here? Not sure what kind of people are running things? Always had a question you've wanted to ask a staff member but felt it was too inappropriate?

Now's your chance!

Every week for as long as it takes, we will be collecting questions for one staff member at a time. At the end of the week, the staff member will write down his/her answers to the questions and post them in the Site News section. There are of course, a few rules:
  • Only one question per member. This isn't to say you cannot send multiple questions, but if you do, only expect one of them to be answered. If the staff member has time and wishes to answer them all, they can do so though.
  • All staff have the ability to reject any question which they feel is too invasive, or which they feel uncomfortable answering. Try to keep your questions light-hearted and interesting, rather than too personal.
  • Send your question in a PM directly to the staff in question, with the subject line "Get to know your staff!" or mention it is for this project when you ask the question. If you are going to ask multiple questions, please try to put them in the same PM.
  • Unless otherwise stated in the PM, your name will not appear next to the question. In other words, you are anonymous by default. If you don't mind people knowing who asked you, let the staff member know in your PM.

We'll be starting this off with the admin, and this week you get yours truly. Send your questions to me by PM before midnight on Friday (whichever timezone is latest). I will attempt to answer them all and post them up next Monday, where I shall announce the next person you should aim questions at for the rest of the week. I'll also be happy to discuss my answers withe everyone.

So, start thinking of interesting, perhaps bizarre questions about me. They can literally be anything, whether you want detailed information, just my answer to a hypothetical, or a simple yes / no.

I can't wait Wink

Never mind my asking you just how far you've actually gotten with Arcanus... Wink

Why not expand it from just the staff into a site-wide thing? Not that the staff aren't interesting or anything... it's just missing a little something:

If you want to make a personal thread, I'm not going to stop you. This one is just for staff.

A thread about me? How boring that would be! Shock

Anyway, I just said '---->me<----' to be silly Tongue (might have been misleading because i didn't include an emoticon :S)

Rather, i was asking why not include all members in a similar system as to

?

I think it would be an interesting activity for the forum at large to partake in...

RE: Get to know your staff!
Well damn, I was going to post a story about how I got to know my staff, but then saw that is not what this thread is about at all.

Damned disappointed I am because I have a very nice staff and thought this would be my opportunity to tell others all about it. Sad
I used to tell a lot of religious jokes. Not any more, I'm a registered sects offender.

Crap, Dotard got to the staff comment before I could.

I was going to go all pervy. Good thing you did it first or I would have embarrassed myself. Tongue

Odd. I was thinking about asking a question today and I can't think of a single thing to ask.
