You want it? You got it! The Members Spotlight is back by popular demand!
This is a feature that has graced our forums for many years and, originally lead by Sam, helped our Unionite community get to know each other a whole lot better. The premise is simple: Every few weeks a handful of volunteers will be thrust into the spotlight, requiring them to answer questions asked by others in the community in their own Spotlight thread! The idea is that you get to know things about people that you might not have ever learnt before.
Sounds like something you'd be interested in? Well, hold your horses because there are a few ground-rules to keep in mind...
- If you wish to sign up for a spotlight, you must do so in this thread. It's the only place that I'll be taking notice of. You'll be added to a waiting list on a first come first served basis. Asking repeatedly will not move you up the list any faster, so once your name is on there, you do not need ask again!
- When you're up for the next round of spotlights, you will be given a week's notice via PM. You MUST send a reply to confirm you are prepared to respond otherwise your turn will be given to someone else & you'll have to sign up all over again! Please don't waste your turn!
- It is a requirement for all people who want to have a spotlight to post questions for other people. If you never send questions, you will never get questions. If I feel your activity in this feature is too low when your spotlight comes around, then I'll let you know via PM and delay your turn til the next round or it will be forfeited.
- Generally, you can look back to the archive to see what sorts of questions have been previously asked, but any thing within reason is allowed. A spotlight member has the right to refuse to answer something if they feel it's too personal. I trust you're all mature enough to govern yourselves on this.
- Members who are spotlighted are free to answer their questions however they see fit. They can answer each question as it comes in, or wait for a few days and answer them in large chunks. It's worth noting that you aren't restricted to just text! You could also post links, images, video, whatever you like! These are your spotlights so take the chance to shine!
- For the time being, once you have had your Spotlight, you are not allowed to re-apply for another round, unless I make an announcement contrary to this.
- All questions about the nature of this feature should go into this thread, so feel free to ask if you're confused or want to know something which I haven't already explained.
So... Who's first?
