New Meet-n-Greet: Moridin, Excalibur, Ardencr

The original is in the sticky, but the thread is kinda slow and the rules on succession is not the greatest. But the core idea is solid, so let's actually get to know more players. The main difference here is that the players will be added more frequently (done in 3s and only a few days given before the next set) and it won't be a "I'll just add my friend" queue. The questions are also short and the format should be easier to access.

1. Tell us about yourself.
2. Any hobbies or talents?
3. What is the top 3 things you want to change in D3 and why?
4. What do you currently do in D3? (e.g. gametype, class/build, other)
5. What would you like to be remembered for by the community?
6. How did you start D3 and how did you end up naming your characters?
7. What is your favorite game of all time (that is not D3)?
8. What is your favorite food and drink?
9. What is your favorite skill or passive (doesn't have to be wiz) and why?
10. Anything else (soapbox moment)?

How do I sign up for this?
You don't. Most likely, your name is already on the list if you have posted on the wiz forums.

There's a new rule in place; however, if you post here, you get bumped up in line. This wasn't always the case, but I found out that people who wanted to do a meet-n-greet never got around to do it because they left the game or lost interest while waiting. Otherwise, the names are picked more or less randomly from a list, so don't read anything into order of picks.

Misc
You get 1 week to make your post and answer any questions. That spotlight week is yours. And by "yours" I mean, yours shared with two other people. The next set of 3 happens the following Monday. If I can't reach a person or they don't respond within that week for various reasons (vacation, left D3, not interested, etc), they get put on hold. If you're on hold and feel ready to reply, a spot will be made for you in the following week as long as you let me know. If you immediately know that you will be declining, let us know as soon as possible so we can move up the next person. Wizards on hold: VoodooLizard, Nonpareil, Ossian

The list of wizards is loooong. I'll try to keep the queue going as fast as I can, but realistically, even with 3 at a time and prodded, it can take months and months for your name to show up. Just relax and have fun reading about other people. Also, more info is great and I won't set a limit, but this isn't a novel. Note that at a certain point, people will tune out if your replies are too long. But much like a college essay, saying just "brief" is probably not a good idea. This is your time to shine!


This week's wizards are:
1. Excalibur
2. Moridin
3. Ardencroft

Upcoming three (prepare, but don't respond yet) ...
1. smiLey
2. Zephyr
3. darthblade

I shall be ready :)
ooooo nice community idea.

But, wouldn't something like this do more justice to the spotlight player if they had their dedicated time/thread to respond to questions and inquiries?

It just seems like 3+ is a party and answering and laying out the interview would be a bit cluttered.

Anyway, will be reading for sure. HF all.
Cool! I liked the idea of meat n greet but I dislike how it seems they are like once very 1-2 months and we only get to hear about a select panel of wizards. (Not that there is anything wrong with the wizards we hear about, just that there are other wizards out there too)

I know CK would probably want to add a quick chat button that allowed him to type "Yo, why dey not CCed man?"
Great Idea.

Though I will tell you that I didn't recommend a <Viz> Member for next to be interviewed in the Fresh Meat and Greet. I figured a less biased direction would be healthy. Look forward to reading about these great peeps!

Yeah, I kinda wrestled with this. Originally, it was a single spotlight player like the original. But I had to balance "spotlightness" versus "moar people." Also, some people are shy or disinterested in talking about themselves, so there could be some gaps. If it turns out too cluttered, I can always drop it back to 2 or 1.

Hopefully, it will roll in the right direction. The start of this could be slow tho.
+1, great idea kiza.

"moar people."


I'm down for this, no one wants to see same stagnant threads in the stickies area.

I think the "blue" text is a nice spot light for the individual, but they need to be a bit more consistent. 2-4 Week period is acceptable for an individual. But they have to manage all the boards not just wizards, so its probably a bunch of work.

We just need one of Yoda's "X, I want to meet you" threads and he puts on his talk show host persona.
Great idea, I got tired of all the <Viz> clan members nominating each other for the green stickied meet and greet threads.
Lordy, lordy, lordy.

You might want to mention in the OP this is by invite only.

:P

The only reason another <Viz> is up next in that thread is because Melkor is a friend and I asked him if he wanted to be next (because he does deserve it anyways, and he did want it) instead of me picking a non-Viz person for the next interview. Otherwise I might have gone with Malakai or someone else along those lines.

Yeah I don't think it's based only on <Viz> clan or they are only nominating others because they are part of the clan. It just happens that the most active and the most seasoned wizards (at least on forums) are part of Viz. Viz has actually contributed alot to the forums.
Finally!

Funny. That's who I nominated ;p

The list is open. I think the only requirement is that you need to have some posts in the wiz forums or you can post right here (you, VoodooLizard, is on the list) and you're free to decline or postpone your turn. Actually, the entire goal is to hear and spotlight people that we don't normally get to see. Majority of these players I don't really know.

I mean, what do you think we want to hear, something interesting about VoodooLizard or yet another post about Wizdog. Well, obviously, another post about Wizdog, but you're definitely second :)
Great thread kiza.

I really want to find out more about all of you.

Thumbs up.

Yeah, I mean, it's not something I wanted to do (spoil, i mean), but I thought it would be prudent to simply point out that the "trend" that has been mentioned here and elsewhere is not "permanent" and some versatility is coming to the Fresh Meat and Greet. But it's not intended to retract from this great idea by kiza.
