Poet of the Fortnight sign-up!

    Hey guys,

    If you'd like to sign up to be interviewed as Poet of the Fortnight, please post on this thread. If you'd like to know more about someone else on the site, post their member ID (navigate to their profile page and then check the browser search bar for this #) and I'll private message them asking if they're interested.

    Sign-ups will be ongoing and randomized. If someone is unavailable when picked, they'll be temporarily skipped.

    As Poet of the Fortnight, you'll be given an initial public survey to complete and then I (or another mod) will ask you a total of 10 questions over a two week period. During this period, other members are encouraged to ask questions. If you are uncomfortable answering a question, please write, "Pass." Please do not simply ignore the question.

    Looking forward to knowing you all better :) I hope to get the first PotF up as soon as possible.


    This is not the order; PotF will be pulled random from the list every time, but this is who's signed up:

    Sounds interesting,

    I will add my name to the list.

    Though 'Poet' is a bit strong

    how about 'loiterer?' *

    *"be loose or erratic, shake, totter" like a loose tooth or a sail in a storm. In modern Du., leuteren "to delay, linger, loiter over one's work." Probably cognate with O.E. lutian "lurk," and related to O.E. loddere "beggar," O.H.G. lotar "empty, vain," Ger.

    Excited to learn more about everyone who's signed up. Maybe it's too early for me to say this, but so far it seems like a success. We have Mark to thank. He came up with the initial idea and the other mods chimed in.

    I believe that makes 10, although Ben is deserving of a repeat should he ever want one.

    The next PotF will begin soon.

  • silvershoes

    I will be mostly unavailable from Jan 5-Jan 14 (Mexico trip), therefore will be putting PotF on pause until I return! The next PotF will ideally begin on January 15th.
