    I think perhaps these should be put on hold again...The threads are only getting like 2 pages each, so perhaps we need to give this thing some time before it is attempted to be resurrected again.

    I tried guys :csad:

    I honestly think it might just be a case of too many all at once. Why not just go back to the original format and not worry about the fact that is was delayed. When it gets to people's turn it gets there. I'm sure they can wait patiently

    I'm not sure that's it either. Cause even the people answering questions seem less into it. Even in the first two days. Fewer people are asking questions period. Repeat questions may suffer from too many threads, but I would think they'd still post once in other threads.

    Just seems like interest is low right now.

    Yeah there was a few going at the same time previously. It's not going any faster than before. I think we have less people asking questions and more people just generally not interested.

    That's really kind of rude. If they signed up for it they get it. That's how it was started that's how it has been going.

    This is my observation as well. It just seems like interest isn't there. Perhaps we wait a while, and then ressurect it then with some of the more popular posters at first, then maybe it will catch on again.

    But for now, best to lay low I think.

    Hey. Chin up. At least you gave it a go.

    For reals, though...I'm with those who have said there's a bit of overkill with the 2-a-days. I think trying to squeeze too many people in at one time is what's making people lose interest in even poking their heads in the thread. Going about it how it was originally scheduled may do the trick as far as resurrecting it goes and if people don't want to wait then they can withdraw their names. Simple as that.

    It's not rude, its the truth

    People don't want to ask questions to someone they've never interacted with before

    ComicChick's wasn't THAT long ago and hers went on for days

    We can try the 1 every two days like before (don't think it will work much, but it can be tried). However, I think we need a few popular posters to go now to get interest back. If anyone wants to volunteer to do it to get interest back, post in here and I'll throw a thread up for you.

    I'm willing to put myself up on the cue in the next few to try and get interest (mine went for 10 pages, so I think I qualify). After a few popular people go, if they get interest back, we can resume the schedule as before.

    Yeah but what usually happens is you inevitably when you have 2 posters going at the same time, one tends to be more popular thread than the other. But, now you aren't getting that much.

    That's practically the whole point of the 15 minutes. Why would you ask question to people you already know. The point is to ask questions and get to know the person. Both the asker and the askee have to play their part. If people see a new name and just go well I don't know that guy so I am not gonna ask questions then the thread doesn't go anywhere.

    When threads were going up as scheduled, even less popular people had more pages. I think a few popular ones will help the lesser known posters out. This is really my goal here. I want these people to get questions.

    Me too. Things like this, Survivor, and various other hype games/threads I think are great ways to try and get posters hesitant to get involved in the hype community involved, and I wish these people were getting more attention cause I remember how long it took me to get noticed by many on here :csad:

    In all honesty, we've had 5 people who went 200 replies and more and only 10 who went 100 and more.

    And we've had what 60 - 70 of these? :huh:

    That's not very nice Star. The whole point of the '15 minutes' are to ask questions to those you know, and to get to know those you do not know.

    I've never interacted with you before, so you're a "random" to me.

    The point is getting to know each other, not a popularity contest.

    I can put your up if you want now :yay:

    Agreed. This is something for everyone. However, as I've previously said, perhaps we should get a few big name posters to make it cool again. I think it helps the low level people too.
