You want a new badge for your profile? Here is an OPEN CALL TO ANYONE AND EVERYONE WHO HAS NOT YET BEEN IN THE SPOTLIGHT

I would like to call on everyone to complete the questions and send them to me. The members interviews that I have will be picked at random and posted. This means you don't have to be contacted to get an interview, if you don't think you qualify then your wrong!

There is only one REAL requirement for anyone to be on In the Spotlight and that is as long as you are a verified GTN member.

PLEASE DON'T EVER FEEL EMBARRASSED or think you don't qualify for any reason. New or non active members have just as much right to be interviewed, besides how else are we supposed to get to know everyone?

When your interview is posted (Interviews are posted on the 1st of each month) you will receive The Spotlight is on badge for participating in a GTN Member of the month interview!

Before you start, I just like to say we don't know too much about you and we like to try to get a somewhat personal spin on these interviews, but don't feel pressured in to anything. We invite you to write your own questions and answer them as well but please also be aware that this is a public site and GTN does have the right to edit your questions and or answers. Mainly it's done for grammatical reasons but sometimes questionable wording has to be re worded or removed, We will try to maintain the integrity of your response. If you chose not to partake in writing your own questions then the questions given here are at the very least all we need.

Below are the questions, feel free to elaborate as much as possible (it makes for better reading). If you do have any questions please PM and ask me B8TINGU.

If your responses are too long to mail back to me here please PM me (B8TINGU) and I will provide my alternate email address. If you can or will please let me know here at GTN via PM when you send your responses via email as sometimes new messages get sent to my spam folder.

Thanks for understanding and helping us all out and we’ll see you, In the Spotlight!

Nice, this looks a lot better. There are a lot of other members I would rather see go before me though and I'm glad I'm last on the list. I'd like to nominate HyruleBalverine as he is very informative, understanding, helpful, and quick to respond to any answer.

I have one question/recommendation. Is there any way you could have hyper links directing people (lazy people, like me, mind you) to the profiles of the members listed in order for us to know more about them to begin with? I only know about half of the cats listed.

Are there any rules in place in order to be added to the list, or can anyone volunteer themselves? To be honest, I'd rather not see a lot of people volunteer unless they're part of the site. Some kind of posts count, or if they've added some other value to the site instead of the people who have just signed up, posted three comments, and then feel they are important enough to the site to be it's Employee (Member) of the Month. Of course I would hope no one would be Quickz to vote for anyone that is a site Ninja.

As for volunteering, well we need people who are interested and I think everyone is interesting, we just need to get to know each other! It used to be that we had a few select members put into a poll and the winner of that poll would be interviewed.. Our community at the time was pretty small, as in who was active, it's gotten way better with more activity and not saying that the first way was wrong it was just a bit flawed..imo. Since I kind of took over the interviewing I have taken some liberties in the way it was run, but I am always open for suggestions.

I added the stipulation that people can be nominated as in Smnovs case, once he joined a lot of people were very interested in what he was about and he was just on the way to hit his Million Gamerscore! So I took that opportunity and tried my best, knowing he was probably busy, but he came thru like true gentleman and gamer!

The list that is currently there is in no way in any order. It's just people who have volunteered or have been nominated by others. This showing that they are active and willing they get a priority. Once all the people on that list have been interviewed,who know what I'll be doing...lol. I actually have a completely random way of picking the next member. Just because a name is last or first, doesn't mean that name get's picked first or last. I also look at when you joined GTN, if for instance you joined and that same month you get picked I may throw your name back, depending.. I have yet to encounter such an instance. My general rules are that you must be a community member in good standing be somewhat active and have been a member for more than one month.

What is a member in good standing.. simple.. don't be caught up in the middle of shady goings ons.. I hold no grudges this is a community site. Key word being community, thus I try to be objective as I possibly can. If I find myself not being able to do that I usually refer to another staff to help out, which I like to do anyway because it shows team work and gives another view that I may have missed. After all I'm not perfect.

Ok hope this answered your questions

You jerks are misspelling asshat. There's quite a difference between that and an asshole, as the people that actually do know me are well aware of.
Adding nothing constructive to a thread near you

What exactly is the point of this thread?

This is not an exclusive list. I'm always looking to add to it, quite frankly I'm a little worried I'll run out of volunteers..then I'll be hunting for more interviewees and hoping I get responds.... Yes Lord KM I'll update your name and add Jack soon. I'm on my phone for this response I don't want to get anyone's name wrong.

I know I'm new here and all but I really dig the site and may be willing to do one of these things.

There is only one REAL requirement for anyone to be on this list as long as they are a GTN member this list is just a guide line and an acknowledgement of people who are active and wanting this badge before others. Once this list has run out of volunteers I will continue to search for potential interviewees even if they are not active members, maybe getting them to be interviewed will help those people get active.. Most importantly PLEASE DON'T EVER FEEL EMBARRASED or think you don't qualify for any reason. New or non active members have just as much right to be interviewed as possible, how else are we supposed to get to know everyone..
