Getting To Know You — May 2019

Recommended Posts

Welcome to May!

 

New Slightly Revised Rules: 

 

Welcome to Getting to Know You, Revised Rules May 2019: 

 

0. Have fun with this. 

 

1. Every day, or so  I will post a question.

 

1.5. Should I be unable to post a question for the day a crack team of deputy quisitors, former quisitors, (and maybe a random forum member will step in and post one...)

 

2. In theory there is a 24 hour span to answer that question before the next question is posted.


2.5. (Rule 2 is the most frequently ignored rule.)


3. Questions are going to be posted between 03:00 hours and 13:00 hours GMT (Nottingham Time.  RHQ is 6 hours behind that; Honolulu is 11 hours behind)


4. Everyone is encouraged to suggest future questions to be posted via PM to me... (Or Talespinner, he started it.)


5. You do not have to answer every question to play, because...


6. If a question is TMI or N/A simply wait for the next question.. ..or post something cryptic or clever (See rule 0; clues are fun).


7. Weekend questions will often/May take the form of two or three day quests, starting on Friday or Saturday.

Is this a challenge? And do there need to be multiple sequential to get a combo bonus?

No idea. I don't worry about stuff like that.

No more than a couple minutes.

 

Sometimes posts get automerged when I don't expect them to.  This is usually because I'm not paying attention rather than a "feature" of the forum software.

I've never had it happen to me. Maybe I don't post enough :ph34r:

I think it was 11 minutes. I thought I had given it enough time. But I've also had it not merge with slightly less time. 

 

I think its as as random as we are.

2 minutes and 59 seconds, since it is set to 3 minutes in the forum code, though sometimes it seems longer than that, but it isn't.

      The latest iteration of the rules follows (LAST EDIT: 1 SEPT 2020):
       
      1. Every day a question will be posted (but see rule 7). 
      1.5. Should I fail to post a question for the day a crack team of deputy & former Quisitors, will probably step in and post one (but see rule 3.5).
      2. In theory there is a 24 hour span to answer the question of the day before the next question is posted.
      2.5. (Rule 2 is the most frequently ignored rule.)
      3. Questions are going to be posted as early as 1 Minute after Midnite or as late as Noon CDT (Central Daylight Time, U.S. )
      3.5 @MusicalFeline  is primary backup this month. MF, please note this is a ^ 12 hour span ^ but if I haven't managed by then jump in.
      4. Anyone is encouraged to suggest future questions. Send a PM to the current or any previous Quisitor. 
      5. You do not have to answer every question to play...
      6. If a question feels like TMI or N/A simply wait for the next question.. ..or post that you decline to answer (clues regarding why can be fun...unless TMI).
      7. Weekend questions will often be formatted as  two or three day quests, or multi-part related questions, posted on Fridays or Saturdays.
