Yes, I am just 17. I don't want to be adult as I am noticing that responsibilities are increasing as the my age is! I am afraid of being a responsible person.

If you check out the first question in my interview that was just posted, you'll notice I also took a bit of a hiatus, while I was in college... smile

I've only recently looked in to this area for the first time, which is perhaps difficult to believe after more than 8 years as an FT member. If it's felt that I meet the criteria for inclusion on the list of potential interviewees, I'd like to put myself forward.

It might help to post a description saying "long standing members only" so as people don't go where they aren't supposed to.

NO Thank You. High School was what it was, I was a loser. I feel ok here....but...yeah...maybe not?


Going off your picture, Severyn, I'd incline to say you've not been out long from high school...and why do you say you're a "loser"? FT itself will let anyone in (provided that they are over the age of 13, due to the Children's Online Privacy and Protection Act, or COPPA).

As for "long-standing"...I'd classify anyone who has been here five years as "long-standing"...even if they don't do that much. On the flipside, someone could be on for just a few months and because they are a professional writer, could have 100 quizzes written here and may be able to qualify for an interview. It's really all subjective.

Everybody is a potential interviewee. Everybody has most likely got some interesting information to tell about his or her life, although the older you are, the more you are likely to have to share.

The 'difficulty', for want of a better word, is knowing the questions to ask to get that information. I could, for example, ask anyone about their favourite book, band, film or tv programme. How much better would that type of question be if someone on the site knows you read 'Harry Potter', or 'War and Peace' twice a year because you've played all their quizzes on those topics and exchanged lots of notes with that person? It's why we ask the prospective interviewee to nominate who should ask the questions. I've given just one example - maybe you've abseiled down the Empire State Building or walked around the coast of Britain, or contributed to the sewing of an American quilt/copy of the Bayeux tapestry, been a backing singer for Madonna. Nobody's likely to ask about that if they don't know you've done it.

You don't need to be a prolific author. You could have built up a network of FT friends by playing quizzes, or contributing to chatboards or writing a blog as well as by writing.

The interviews take quite a bit of work - for me (currently), the people nominated to ask questions and the interviewee, having to think how best to answer. We want people to look at the interviews and think 'oh yes, I'd really like to know more about...'.

Who's interview is going on? I will ask for their permission for asking the question.

It doesn't work that way round. The interviewee makes the choices.

I feel so flattered, but I am 35. I should cancel my facial because you made me feel young.

Never would have guessed that! I'm only five years older...

I have been around FT since 2005. I have written many a quiz. I would be interested in an interview if there is interest smile
