Well, it's here - the spanking new Interviews forum. Here's the deal:

The moderators of this forum are the only ones (aside from us admins, of course) who can post new threads in this forum. Everyone else can only reply to threads that have already been made.

Now, the moderators are also HLP's interviewers. They will be doing interviews of various things as they deem fit - Campaign leaders, SCP programmsrs, expert renderers, outstanding 3D modellers, etc. They will conduct the interview outside the forums - on ICQ or whatever, and then post the interview in this forum. Once they've posted the interview, everyone will be able to reply with questions, comments, etc. There's no guarantee that the original interviewee will keep responding to question, but we hope so.

So, any questions? :)

"...The quintessential quality of our age is that of dreams coming true. Just think of it. For centuries we have dreamt of flying; recently we made that come true: we have always hankered for speed; now we have speeds greater than we can stand: we wanted to speak to far parts of the Earth; we can: we wanted to explore the sea bottom; we have: and so  on, and so on: and, too, we wanted the power to smash our enemies utterly; we have it. If we had truly wanted peace, we should have had that as well. But true peace has never been one of the genuine dreams - we have got little further than preaching against war in order to appease our consciences. The truly wishful dreams, the many-minded dreams are now irresistible - they become facts." - 'The Outward Urge' by John Wyndham

"The very essence of tolerance rests on the fact that we have to be intolerant of intolerance. Stretching right back to Kant, through the Frankfurt School and up to today, liberalism means that we can do anything we like as long as we don't hurt others. This means that if we are tolerant of others' intolerance - especially when that intolerance is a call for genocide - then all we are doing is allowing that intolerance to flourish, and allowing the violence that will spring from that intolerance to continue unabated." - Bren Carlill

oy... more moderators... fun. That brings it up to about 50% of the active members. How did these people get chosen?

in case of emergency, administer caffeine to the artist,
he will become docile after that,

They asked to do it, provided the staff with proof that they were good at it, and the rest is history IIRC.

I'm seeing my boss this friday so i'll ask her about interviews and post a "how to write an interview thread" here. OK with that?

Can I have my pants back?

Who moved my cheese?

Can I be a moderator? I wanna be able to ban things and edit other peoples' posts. I'm a good interviewer, I've done it before on several occasions, as well as interrogations. I even got one published in the (school) (news)paper (a long time ago)!

Though that might have had something to do with the state of the paper.
