This thread is up-to-date as of January 31, 2009

Hello, fellow Ducks! skoolmunkee has graciously allowed me to manage the (semi)-new community “interview circle”… in which will become probably the only community interview circle. :) From now on, though, we'll call it “Quack With The Ducks”!

The concept of this project is pretty much the same as last time:

This should make it easier to see what I
- If you sign up for an interview, you will have to conduct an interview yourself. Up to 10 people per group with at least one alternate, just in case someone can't finish their interview in time. Of course… someone could always conduct a second interview if there's no alternate. :)

- I'll pair you up at random with someone else in the group, but if you absolutely, positively MUST interview a specific someone, be sure to PQ me beforehand. Or, if you're not afraid to *plea* publicly, just post here. :)

- Once you sign up and have made up your questions, send them to me so I can check them. I don't think we'll have a problem with inappropriate questions, but it never hurts to check. ;) Also be sure to make your questions CLEAR and, to the best of your knowledge, accurately spelled. This is ever-so important in a written interview, so we need to make sure those who read it are… well… able to.

EDIT
- I will post the pair-ups the day after the group sign-ups have closed. A PQ will also go out to everyone who signed up, stating your interviewee, your interviewer, and the comics and other links and info that would be necessary to the project.

- You can use whatever medium you want to make your interviews; just type up some Q&A or make a full-blown comic… anything you can think of will be accepted. Just try not to take too long in making it. I wanna keep this rolling in case things get crazy.

And, like before, your interview will be “stickied” in the newly-founded Interview Forum. For how long, I'm not sure. Probably for a week or so, or just before a new batch of interviews comes in.

This project will continue so long as there is interest and participation. Anyone can sign up to conduct and, ultimately, be interviewed. And so, because anyone CAN sign up for this, I gotta… *sigh* lay down some ground rules. -.-

The Long Arm of the Law
- You must have at least 25 pages in your comic.

- Each interview must have at least 10 and no more than 20 questions. I don't want people to feel cheated if they had a lot less questions to answer than others… and not so long that readers lose interest. :(

- For now, I'll just be taking those with original comics. I personally have nothing against sprite or fan comics, but an original idea is undoubtedly better for an interview. Sorry :\

- Those of you involved in previous groups of QWTD will be allowed to interview as alternates (or as extras for when the group needs it), but I don't know if you can be interviewed yourselves… seeing as you were interviewed rather recently. :S

- If someone assists you with your comic, please specify here or PQ me with your role in the comic. That way our interviewers will know what kind of questions to ask of you. :) Your partner can answer a question or two (if they don't mind), but if they want to be a bigger part of it, they'll have to sign up separately…

- Anyone who was only interviewed but did NOT conduct an interview may sign up again, but only as an extra who can conduct an interview. ‘course, if you’ve done both, you can always sign up as an alternate!

Sign ups hopefully won't take too long. I'll let it sit for a couple of days. Alternates (or myself) can fill in the empty spaces if it takes too long.

After a group of 10 has been established, you'll have seven days to get your questions made up, cleared by me, answered, and sent back to me for posting. I'll post the interviews in the order that I get them; first come, first serve. :) If you need more time, please PQ as soon as possible!

So if you're interested, sign up here! Or if you aren't sure what this is, you can always check out the interviews forum :)

Sounds good to me. :)

But if there are others who want to be consistent alternates, you might have to “take turns” in doing so… if necessary.

I'd be happy to chip in with interviewing - I just got interviewed via the first community project, so I dunno how fair it would be to get interviewed again (so shortly afterwards, too, hehe).

I'm glad you're expanding on SkoolMunkee's efforts! High five!

Yeah, awesome initiative. This could really be a great new community thing.

You can put my name down for an alternate interviewer, too. Since I was in the first batch, I don't think getting interviewed again anytime soon makes sense (as you put in your original post), but I'd be happy to supply some questions.

Hey why not? This sounds like fun. Toss my name into the ring. I think this is a brilliant idea, just like the other interviews which have been a lot of fun to read.

Hey, if you want, you are more than welcome to put me down as an alternate as well if help is needed. No one would need to interview me, but I would be more than willing to interview others if someone was unable to and someone needed to fill in.

Alright! We now have seven in the group and Midge as another alternate. :)

I also added the date I'll close the sign-ups. I'll be away for the weekend but I'll still have internet access. ;)

Will we know who we are interviewing? I would like to personalize the interview, and do some reading of their comics, so I can give a proper interview…

- I'll pair you up at random with someone else in the group, but if you absolutely, positively MUST interview a specific someone, be sure to PQ be beforehand. Or, if you're not afraid to *plea* publicly, just post here. :)

It is not to clear here…..

Yep, I'll post the pair-ups here in the forum and I'll send out a PQ with a link to the person you'll be interviewing. :) I'll allow a couple of days for you to read however much of their comic you need beforehand.

I'm just about to start pairing people up - I have a few things to do first, though…

I know that the first group is filled. But I'd love to be a part of group two or an alternate. I know that I was interviewed in the first circle. But my interview never happened because the one I sent questions to had computer problems and couldn't do it. I'd really like to try this again.

I could sign you up as an extra for group two, but you'll only be able to conduct an interview (seeing you were previously interviewed). I hope that isn't a problem for you! :)

Perhaps you should put the interviews that you have recieved already in bold?
Just in case someone sent a PQ and it didn't arrive or something.

@spiritmonkey - Maybe I should do that? I have the interviews here, but it should help me (and others) figure out where we are in terms of getting the interviews posted.
