So basically each member would vote for who they would like to interview. After the voting's done, people get to ask qustions and after a while, someone else is chosen.

I saw this in another forum and it worked kinda well, I think it could be cool, plus this place could use some more activity.

Indeed that is quite a cool idea and could be quite interesting, if people ask good questions that is. I would be up for this :)

Yeah so it seems, I think it's a great idea but it's not like I'm gonna force it.

You didn't really explain it very well.

Do you mean pick a forum member for everyone to ask questions to? Users nominate themselves, other people vote for which one they want to ask questions to, then ask questions, they answer, then we all do it again?

Haha sorry : p

But yeah, everyone votes for who they want to be interviewed( you can't vote for yourself), then you see the one person who was voted more. That person is then asked questions by the community during like a week or something, then you just redo this whole process. By the way, a person can't be chosen twice, after you do an interview it's over.

I read it around the day it was posted, but wanted to process it a little more, to create a more in-depth post. I'm currently stoned so I don't feel like writing anything but I'll be back in this topic with 2 cents or so soon.

Formspring could be used for this also?

Sounds good to me. Depending on how many members take part in it though, you would need to set a limitation on the number of questions that they can ask.

Nothing to see here, move along

No, the point is to get more people active on these forums. But yes I'd imagine the actual 'interview' would be formspring style. i.e. we'd have a topic where users would ask questions and the interviewee could respond to each one individually.

Alternatively we collect questions over a few days and they're asked all at once, this doesn't really encourage posting though.

Maybe if the person interviewed answer's three questions at a time while other question's are still being posted throughout the rest of the week. Maybe that could work?

I say let people ask as many questions as they want, then it's up to the dude interviewed to decide if he's gonna answer them all.

Do you mean interview people from the people related to the GTA series(Rockstar, voice actors, etc) or members of the forum?

You could use the TGTAP Chat for live interviews.
Decide on a base set of questions beforehand(5-8 or so depending on the time limit), Setup the interview in chat, Let the interviewee answer one question.. users and interviewee discuss on that for x minutes then next question and so on. Sorto like a debate.

I'd much rather see interviews with people involved in the production of Grand Theft Auto games. Even people who did minor voice work or motion capture would be interesting.

I am all in favor of figuring out ways to keep the community alive and active, and this could turn out into a cool thing, but I'm just not sure how high the demand for this idea really is. If it proves to be a wanted thing here, then I'm all off it.

I'm not too sure how hard it'd be to go about doing that, but I'm certain it'd be a lot harder than getting members here to participate and get interviewed.

Yeah but this is a forum game, not an actual interview.
