Nominating people was never the intention of the forum, it says in the first post that if you would like to be interviewed to add your name.
The original idea is to get to know staff members, some prolific authors and longer term members.
Please add your name to the list if you would be prepared to be interviewed at some time and fall within the above boundaries.
Unfortunately some people who were new to the site/forums signed up then never stuck around.
It is better, in my opinion, for people to nominate themselves and to ensure that they are regular visitors to the forums so that they know when they are about to be interviewed.
