    Don't let the date fool you! 15 Minutes* are in fact back, and hopefully better than ever! Whether you are a vet, a noob, or somewhere in between, we've all wanted our own 15 Minutes of Fame, and now, here is your chance to have some fame on the Hype.

    The concept is simple; every few days a thread will be created, devoted solely to one hype member and is open to the rest of us to ask them any questions we'd like, as long as they adhere to the hype rules of course :) 15 minutes threads were a huge success for a time, and are a great way to bring the community closer.

    If interested please sign-up below. There is no deadline for this, it will go on as long as there is interest. Also, the biggest irk is when people do simple one word answers. Some questions may suffice but if you're not really going to go all out and participate, it may be best if you don't sign up.

    Also, CC, put something in a post about elaborating on answers. One of the things that kills a 15 minutes is one word answers or less than thrilling responses. I'm not saying everything has to be a 3 page diatribe but stuff like...


    What was one of the most important things to happen to you?
    Graduating College

    How did you lose your virginity?
    Girlfriend at 18

    Elaborate. Tell a story. Make it interesting. :huh:

    I think I signed up for that last one, but it stopped before I went. I doubt they'll be much activity for mine since I'm not a community regular but I'll give it a try.

    then yours would be closed really fast.

    the reason they fell off last time is people signed up and then didn't show up or really participate in their threads.

    you can be a relative unknown or e-popular and still have success with these. by participating in asking questions in other threads you're more likely to have those people return the favor by posting in yours. by having "good" answers, you'll be likely to elicit more questions. basically, if you answer half heartedly or with one word answers, no one is gonna want to ask you stuff.

    advertise:
    link in your sig
    pm your friends, but don't spam
    i'm going to ask if i can sticky the current poster thread(s) to the top of the community forward (permission pending, of course)

    What if we've done it before? Are we allowed to go again?

    If so, I'll go again.
