    You asked for it, so you shall now receive!

    Welcome to the Official SWC Member Interview Thread, Version 1.0. This is the place where you can get to know more about your fellow SWCers through a series of questions posed to each member who is willing to conduct an interview. I, Jedi Gunny, will be your slightly-sane interviewer, so I will try to come up with as varied a list of questions as I can for each person to keep this fresh and fun!

    Guidelines:

    1. I will only interview people who specifically PM me giving me permission to interview them in this manner (this is to prevent me from asking someone who is not expressly interested in being interviewed if they want to participate).

    2. I will ask a series of 8-10 questions to each person, mostly about the SWC and TF.N in general. Some more "personal" questions will be asked, but nothing where you need to feel uncomfortable (if you do feel uncomfortable with a question I ask, just reply that you are unwilling to answer a question and give the number; I will issue a substitute question to replace it). They will likely be more along the vein of "What hobbies do you have?" or "What is your favorite color?"
    (NOTE: If you want to cross the Bridge of Death, the answer to that question is always "Blue" :p)

    3. I will PM back one person who has PMed me with interest in being interviewed every so often. If you are not chosen, don't panic; I want to get to everyone, so you'll get your chance soon enough.

    4. Most Important Step: Please be civil and respect the responses of other people. Some issues can be contentious, so please respect the rights of others to their opinions. Please follow all forum and board rules. If there are any questions regarding this, please contact @Sinrebirth.

    5. Although socialization to some extent is encouraged (commenting on people's responses is OK), please don't socialize more than you have to. If you want to socialize at length, keep it in the Cloud City Cantina. ;)

    6. In general, just have fun. That's the whole reason we're doing this, so keep it fun, and keep it weird. [face_peace]


    So, who's first? [face_mischief]

    Hide yerselves, for here comes another installment of TMZ . . . er . . . SWC Interviews! :p

    This time with the guy who came up with the idea for this thread, Rick! Also known as @Sistros, MadHatter, Charn, etc.

    Rick's responses are in bold.

    1. Why did you join the TF.N forums?

    it was originally to ask a simple question. I didn't plan on staying at all, I had a heard a rumour that Dooku was going to duel both Anakin and Obi-Wan at the same time in ROTS, this was in Nov 2004, and wanted to know if it was true.

    2. What attracted you to the SWC?

    The CCC, and was the most friendliest place on the boards, the most relaxed chilled place, so I stayed here ever since, I even introduced my best friend here

    3. If you could meet one SWCer in real life, who would it be?

    we all know the answer that, the love of my life

    4. What is your favorite color?

    blue, I tend to go towards the lighter shades of it though, dark blue is ok, funnily enough I detest the blue colour of the lightsaber blade, it just looks blah, I also like the purple colour of rusty, before it turns into the orangey brown colour.

    5. If you won the lottery, what would be the first thing you would buy with your winnings?

    buy my mum a cottage she likes in Somerset

    6. Cake or pie?

    if I had to eat either it would be cake

    7. Favorite SW Episode?

    AOTC , there is just something about it,

    8. What is your dream job?

    being an Auteur director without being snobby to realise film is a collaborative effort and each person should bring their idea to the story, however if I wanted complete control of a movie, I better get spending that lottery money :p

    9. What did you have for breakfast this morning?

    don't eat breakfast, I decide what the most important meal of the day is, not a person in a white lab coat. :p

    The Third Interview: My Chat with @Mister_Master

    1. What brought you to the TF.N forums?

    A: Star Wars obviously.:p Originally I joined to comment on a fanfic that I had read. I started out reading fanfic and playing in RPGs. Eventually I started venturing out into other parts of the forums.

    2. What brought you to the SWC?

    A: I was stalking Gunny.:p I'm only half kidding. At the time I only hung out in WNU, Fanfiction and the RPG sections. I was wanting to find new places to hang out so I decided I would find out where some of my friends hung out. I followed Gunny to the SWC and took up permanent residence in the CCC.

    (Interviewer note: Not sure if I should be happy or slightly disturbed. :p Nah, just kidding)

    3. If you could meet one SWCer in real life, who would it be?

    A: This isn't a fair question. I like too many.:p If I can only choose one then I choose Charn. I think it would be cool to meet him.

    4. What was the last book/article/essay you read?

    A: The last book I read is called Not a Fan by Kyle Idleman.

    5. Paper or plastic?

    A: I like both.:p

    6. If you could be a character in one fictional universe of your choice, which would it be?

    A: Narnia. Although I would want to be me in Narnia.:p

    7. What are your hobbies?

    A: I enjoy reading, writing, playing video games, listening to music, making videos, acting, and last but certainly not least, posting on the Jedi Council Forums.

    8. Favorite SW Episode?

    A: Return of the Jedi.

    9. What was the last song you listened to?

    A: Child of Mine by Mark Schultz

    10. If you could take a vacation to anywhere in the world at this exact moment, where would it be to and why?

    A: I would want to spend the weekend at the British Museum. I love History and that would be so exciting to immerse myself into their culture. This or Medieval Times. That would be fun also.


    Thank you MM! =D=


    The next set of interview questions will be released tomorrow to our next lucky contestant. :)

    Sorry for the delay in sending out the questions. I've had another rough work weekend, and my brain gets scattered. So the next lucky interviewee now has the questions in their possession.

    Interview #4, this time with @Frank T.

    1. What brought you to TF.N?

    I don't remember. A long time ago on a computer far, far slower, sometime in '98 or '99 I was searching for glimpses of what a new SW movie was gonna look like.

    2. What attracted you to the SWC?

    Mostly the opportunity to get to know Star Wars fans worldwide. Also I am by far the biggest fan among my friends and family so I like talking SW with people as serious (or more so) about it as I am.

    3. If you could meet one SWCer in real life, who would it be?

    At the moment, epithree because we both like hockey(a lot) and Star Wars so right there I know we could talk for days at least.

    4. Cake or pie?

    Pie!

    5. What was the last song that you listened to?

    Down with Disease->What's the Use? (open)


    6. If you won the lottery, what would be the first item that you would buy with your winnings?

    Whatever I needed at the moment but my first major purchase would be a good property to open up a comic book store in the Chi-town area.

    7. What did you have for dinner last night?

    Chicken and pasta

    8. What is your favorite TV show?

    All-time is a tie between two mini-series: Cosmos by Carl Sagan and The Decalogue by Kieslowski. Currently I only watch Castle and Warehouse 13 and I'd give a slight edge to Castle.

    9. Favorite SW Episode?

    The Empire Strikes Back since I was 5.

    10. If you were a response on a Magic-8 ball, which one would you be?

    You may rely on it

    As you all are probably aware (or not, but you will find out now), I had major computer issues last night that prevented me from sending out the next set of questions. Hopefully I will be able to select the next participant tomorrow and send the questions their way. [face_peace]
