(I have no idea how many incarnations of this there have been previously)

We've been discussing reviving this EoFF tradition in the events committee forum. I think instead of the twenty questions format of previous instalments of this we'll probably be doing an "ask me anything" approach. I may ask people to submit a brief introduction to start things off but other than that people seem to think it's best to keep things pretty open-ended.

I'm probably going to want to get this started after the new year. People are too busy over the holidays.

So I guess we can use this as a general signup/discussion thread. If you're interested in participating, post about it and I'll compile a list of participants. You'll have to commit to showing up and answering questions during your scheduled week but the time commitment probably won't be too strenuous.


Edit: The following people have signed up, in (as far as I can determine) this order: (note: this has since been revised to reflect the order participants have actually gone in)

shion
Lone Wolf Leonheart
Del Murder
Pant Leg Eater from the Bad World
WildRaubtier

Sephex

Miss Mae

Rin Heartilly

Ghosteses (if she's been given COPPA approval by then) (this probably won't happen)
Gzussaves
Yar
This is the point where I said I was closing sign-ups, but I've already dipped into the base of members who signed up after that point so I obviously lied:
Alive-Girl
Mirage
Christmas
MissH
Ergroilnin

I'll try to keep this running as long as possible. I'm planning to do one of these each week, starting January 1, and in the order listed. I'll PM each person roughly a week before their thing starts to allow them to contribute introductory text and make sure they're still able to participate. If you want me to sketch out roughly when you'll have to participate I can do that but it may take some time.

I'll still take signups but I can't promise to keep this running forever so it will be with the caveat that if I no longer have the ability/desire to keep this running it may not happen unless I can find someone else to hand it off to.

I may or may not continue taking sign-ups past this point. It remains to be seen how long I have the patience to keep doing this. If I decide not to continue I'll probably hand the whole thing off to someone else, though.

Can't think of anything else offhand but we'll see how things go.

Hello, reddit. This is Lone Wolf Leonhart. Proof via my twitter page. Poster and occasional article writer at Eyes on Final Fantasy. Recently taking credit for the bringing about of :3: Ask me anything.

Yeah, I'd do this.

12-16-2013, 04:55 AM
I think I was something like the second to last person who did this last time, so I don't want to do this again early on. I'll do it if you end up happening to need more people, though!

Jiro
12-16-2013, 04:55 AM
I like questions. It's been a while since I entered one of these.

Pant Leg Eater from the Bad World
12-16-2013, 05:06 AM
When did this die off? It can't have been very long ago. I remember it being around a couple months ago, I think.

Obviously I would be willing to participate I suppose.

12-16-2013, 05:09 AM
I'll take a backseat and observe this time around. :jess: I filled out an EoY survey long ago, and even though the information probably isn't up to date, I'd like to see folks who haven't had a shot yet get their turn in.

WildRaubtier
12-16-2013, 05:17 AM
I love being asked questions.

I'll give it a whirl, if anyone want to question me xD

Miriel

I don't think I've ever done EoY, although maybe I did and I just totally forgot. But sign me up! I've got loads of free time these days.

Sign me up! Seeing as i'm new around here it'd be a good way for people to get to know me

Ayen
12-16-2013, 03:24 PM
I'm game. I'll be sure to do plenty of hand gestures while answering each question that you won't be able to see on account of not being right in front of me.

Fuzakeru
12-16-2013, 04:24 PM
I would love to participate! :D

Dat Matt
12-16-2013, 10:44 PM
I'll do one. People apparently want to know the answers to the important questions, like "Are Shauna and Mr. Shauna actually the same person" for example. Suprise bunnies http://www.genxdaddy.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/10/Bunny.jpg

Sign me up! I haven't done a EoY yet either. I did sign up for last time, but didn't get through. Maybe this time I will!

escobert
12-17-2013, 07:27 PM
So how come I was never allowed to continue my EoY after I regained internets!? It was just taken from me! :mad2:

Del Murder
12-17-2013, 08:35 PM
I am down. I am also signing up Loony BoB, Psychotic, and Shlup against their will. It will be the AAAA (Ask An Admin Anything).

Shlup
12-17-2013, 08:39 PM
I Am A Geek On A Message Board, AMA

I haven't done EoY for a few years, so why not.

Miriel
12-17-2013, 08:40 PM
I am down.

I was gonna volunteer you anyway!

The Man

Note that I may put a cap on the number of people who can sign up for this, but I'm not 100% sure what that cap will be. I can't decide whether I want to run this for six months or longer. If I'm running it for six months, I already have basically enough people as it is. I may choose to keep it going for a year though.

Shlup
12-17-2013, 09:06 PM
Get it together, asshat.

Loony BoB
12-19-2013, 12:30 PM
Happy enough to be involved.

I will add some of this information to the opening post and amend it with any updates that may occur. I'll still take signups but I can't promise to keep this running forever so it will be with the caveat that if I no longer have the ability/desire to keep this running it may not happen unless I can find someone else to hand it off to.

Poo, if only I had posted one post sooner. Being number 13 would have been perfect.

Oh hey I could do this, I like to answer things in a ridiculous, nonsensical and kind of buttholey way that is semi-entertaining.

12-29-2013, 04:43 AM
I will sign on for this. Is it too late? I love questions.

The Man
12-29-2013, 04:54 AM
I'm still adding new people to the list (I'll probably only update the OP though) but like I said I just can't promise to run this forever so we'll see if things ever get that far.

Del Murder
12-29-2013, 07:16 AM
Can I request my week to be moved up to March or earlier? There are certain things happening later in the year that may prevent me from participating. :leo:

The Man
12-29-2013, 07:24 AM
Noted. I'll probably move you to sometime in March.

Just swap me with Del Murder, I don't mind waiting around. My life will be far more interesting later on.

Hmm...I would love to be involved, but maybe if I understood what this is exactly? I'm sure I was around when it was first introduced but I still never really grasped what it was.

You sign up, and then people ask you questions in a thread and you answer them. It's an "ask me anything" thread to get to know people.

Ashi
12-29-2013, 10:07 PM
Oh okay. Thanks. I still didn't get it from reading the original post. Thank you!

Raistlin

Count me in as a belated singup, if you ever get that far through the list. :p

The Man
01-16-2014, 05:13 AM
I'll probably keep doing it as long as I don't get bored of running it. It's not like there's much time commitment. I've decided I want my own round too since it's been like eight years since I participated.

Gzussaves
01-28-2014, 03:18 PM
I might as well sign up.. then it would mean i would have to post rather than lurk so much XD

Please sign me up so that when it is my turn in like... October or whatever, I will be ready!

can i still sign up?

The Man
03-02-2014, 05:26 AM
By the way I'm not going to keep bugging people for opening messages so if I've already asked you for a message and you haven't responded to it I'm just going to assume you're skipping your turn until I get it. The next round will be starting tomorrow with whoever is highest on the list that has sent me a message.

I think everyone who has posted in this thread has been added but let me know if I forgot someone.

Ayen
03-31-2014, 05:03 PM
w00t! Just one more week to go until it's my turn.

The Man
04-17-2014, 04:47 PM
Sorry about the delay for this week. I lost track of time. Also the next two people in line still haven't messaged me anything. I'll hopefully be able to put something up tonight.

Ace Protorney
04-17-2014, 05:10 PM
Yeah I'm not going away so go ahead and ask me anyway!

Just so you know, I think I'm done accepting new applications for this. I'm pretty sure I'll finish off all the people who have signed up so far but I'm guessing that if people haven't signed up by now they probably don't care that much. If newcomers end up wanting to participate then I guess someone else can step up to the plate.

Note that there are two people I sent messages to literally months ago who still haven't responded. Evidently they don't care that much either. I'm guessing they've just disappeared from the forum.

Hey aaron
i think you should sign me up

just a hunch though
but a pretty strong hunch

I'll sign up too I guess because why not. See how long you can keep this going, haha.

Miss Mae

I was going to sign up earlier, but thought you'd stopped taking signups because of ~reasons~. I'll sign up now though if you're still taking people. :jess:

The Man

Note: If you want your Eyes on You to be held in Eyes on Each Other, let me know. I have decided I am probably going to hold mine in there so I can discuss certain issues I don't wish to mention in the fora that are open to search engines. Since the Eyes on You archive is not visible to the public, this means that anyone who wishes to view your thread will at all times need to be a registered member of the forum.

Also, I may contradict my earlier indication and continue doing these indefinitely. We'll see how fatigued I feel. If I get bored, Alive-Girl has offered to take this over, so in either case it's not going anywhere. It looks like the remaining sign-ups before I said I was stepping down will take seven weeks (since it looks like Minami and Fuzakeru are never going to message me about their participation) and that seems sooner than I was expecting somehow.

Signups are now closed. If you haven't gotten around to answering the PMs I sent you by now, sorry, but I'm no longer running this anymore.
