I'd still be up for KYT.
It is probably still good for lesser known members to get a chance to shine in the spotlight. Maybe could be limited to members less than 2 years old/less than 1000 messages maybe?
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.

Offer points for KYT questions?
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.

Well i think that it's dead.
Man, what a shame because i never got to see this whole thing.
It doesn't help that it's not explained well in this thread and i had to do some research to understand that it's about.

Oh boy, I just realised it's been almost 2 years this thread's been posted. I miss KYT. I liked being a part of it (even though I got almost no questions).

I haven't had as much time as I wanted to work on it.
I'm willing to pick it up again and perhaps promote it to the portal every time to gather more visibility but I'd like to do something different then then just a simple AMA.

I'll discuss it with the rest of the staff, I'd love to see KYT be a more important part of GBAtemp!

I am not going to lie, I miss the KYT. It was something enjoyable to look forward to and I deeply enjoyed getting the know my fellow Tempers more. I also kind of miss being the host of the KYT, but life got in the way and still hasn't settled down for me.
