I think it should be that no member can be picked for a good while after their 'turn' otherwise it will get repetitive and dull - or even worse and be like Paul's monthly Q & A *shudder*. Some kind of unwritten rule that 2 or 3 months should pass before a person can be the focus of the Q&A again.

I'm with you on that. That's only fair to the users that constantly get picked!

If we are to have the same person more than once, the set of questions will have to rotate.

Definitely.

And if this is to happen we'll have to come up with questions that go beyond favourite beatle, song, album, when did you first get into them etc, as, as AG posted above, most folk have already answered these elsewhere.

I say the loser has to listen to the entire Get Back sessions. Just The Long And Winding Road, though - Paul knows.

I thought there would be no losers for this maybe if we made a best cover of a Beatles song contest then we could have losers but this is more of a round questions thing I think like

User 1 goes for one week

User 1 picks User 3 to go

User 3 goes for a week

User 3 can't pick User 1 so they go with User 4

User 4 goes

User 4 can't pick User 1 or 3 so they go with User 2

User 2 is very happy

Unless user 2 feels like the kid who's picked last for the school team and only been selected because there is no one else.

That seems like a functional way to work it, and since we don't want to vote on a member, I think @HeyJude LetItBe should be the first one for coming up with the idea.

And we'll need a set of questions.

BTW the forum cover contest sounds like a fun idea, Anna, but the whole hurting feelings and voting thing would come up again...

If I spoke prose you'd all find out, I don't know what I talk about.

Ok @HeyJude LetItBe why did you join the forum?

 

^That could be one

 

So it starts and ends on mondays

 

And how bout just assign random user with a random Beatles song and they could choose to cover it or not and it would have no contest

C'mon, thats just sick.

 

So is it a matter of drawing up a set of questions or firing off questions whenever the are though up over a seven day period?

If anything we could have a standard set of questions and have a thread where people could answer that standard set of questions so that if anyone wants to look through the thread to get to know someone better they could.

I like that idea.

Okay: Because I was beginning to feel like a real Beatles-fan, and I was searching after Beatles forums. My brother (that also is Beatles interested) was reading about Beatles songs on this website, and I found out it was a forum here too, so I joined, and I don't regret a single second! a-hard-days-night-ringo-15

I just had this thought: isn't this what we have profiles for? We could have some suggested questions that all those who want to go along could answer in their profile. No need to remember the thread where everyone put their information.

I've been thinking about this thread and maybe a week would be too long maybe just have a a day or two for each member and have the first person be randomly chosen from a list of active members and if someone doesn't wanna do it then they not be a part of it. And after their question time, they pick a member that hasn't already gone before.

I think this could be cool since for a day or two they would be the focus for a bit.
