    I'd still be up for KYT.
    Why limit who can enter?

    Because better known members can do AMAs in their blogs and be likely to get responses; lesser known members can't

    I've been on KYT multiple times when I had less posts. I got next to no questions. Limiting KYT to lesser-known members doesn't help them at all.

    I threw this idea at Issac earlier, but I suppose I'll post it here too. This is just something I thought of spur of the moment.

    What if we brought tempbot back, and used it to post an automated thread each KYT session. It'd just need to cycle through the names of the entrants from a list or something. Then it'd get promoted to the front page as a news post (but it'd stay in the offtopic section so it doesn't get sent off to google news lol)

    This'd help with visibility, and it'd help without adding an arbitrary limit to entrants, too.

    are you suggesting the scheduling done by just the bot, or everything?

    Something for automatically send the pm, and to make the thread, and then lock it when three days or whatever is over. but you'd still need someone to make sure that people are participating, and that it's not turning into a eof thread.

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    Maybe, but then people are going to abuse it by asking the easiest questions like "what's your favorite color?"

    Just the notification of an upcoming KYT PM, a thread being posted, and locked once it's over with. Not even sure how possible it is, again, just an idea off the cuff. Of course people would still do moderation like any other thread on the site lol?

    This is really cool. Perhaps the person in question for the KYT session could award their favorite question an XP bonus to be given at the end?

    Me main concern is circle jerking and out-of-EoF jokes.
    I've seen wonderful KYT threads and would love to see them again.

    Front paging it was one of the thoughts I originally had as well.
    Together with the interview-y style.

    Good and original KYT questions should be awarded indeed!
    This will hopefully encourage others to do the same.
