    The last one was Ikki's which was over a month ago.
    And it suddenly stopped.

    What happened? :unsure:

    Vulpes has been running it since T. Dave has been sick. Now Vulpes has been having personal issues lately* so ... I guess its on hold for a while longer.

    *That's what he said in the shoutbox a couple of days ago anyway.

    It began to lose popularity as the DS began to die, due to much of the community losing interest as DS releases and homebrew slowed down. The community has dimmed down some, and we've lost quite a few regulars. Many of these regulars were what really contributed to the KYT's. I think it's going to take until some new hacking breakthrough and the revival of the community, likely through the hacking of the 3DS, until we build up a regular enough community interested in such an aspect to revive it.

    When GBAtemp's resident Time Lord starts querying question chronology you just know that something is slightly skew-whiff!

    I know, but seriously, I remember seeing this word for word, if not close to it, before. I think it was last month.

    We didn't take a break between the seasons, and it seemed (to me, and to a few others) that interest in the activity had waned quite a bit.
    So the break we normally take between the seasons was initiated a bit later than usual.

    I'm still inclined to think the interest in KYT would rise if tempers nominated those to be put under the spotlight rather than volunteering themselves for a slot. Ultimately many of the same faces pop up, and much of the time it's people we're familiar with already being questioned.

    Yeah I'd vote for a few people. Though honestly it would be more interesting to read the threads if half the posts weren't a copy-paste list of 50 questions that nobody gives a fuck about.

    If we nominate Cyan and ask him about his cooking skills, that's an interesting read.

    If pokefan12345 nominates themselves and answers "are you wearing pants?" 10 times in the thread, that's boring.

    Yeah, there weren't many people that I had any questions for

    also it has become a +1 postcount exercise

    I was on the list but it never got to me before it stopped, I assumed there was a good reason so shrugged and didn't question it.

    I usually read the threads, even if 90% of the questions were copy-pasted from the previous KYT, but never posted any questions myself.

    My opinion is that if someone wanted to be interviewed(/harassed with questions) they'd make the first move and apply to be on a KYT.

    I've always wanted to be in KYT but never got chosen for it. I feel as if I should, cuz I joined a couple years ago then just suddenly started contributing a while back kinda out of the blue.

    I think we should nominate people to interview, would be so much more interesting if we were able to chose. I SAY WE BRING IT BACK AND START WITH ME. GO!

    Good points. I would like to suggest too that there be a reasonable limit to the number of questions per post. Its irritating to read 50 thoughtless and stupid questions and it must be even more irritating to have to answer them , copypasted or not.

    If people could only post, say 5 questions at a time, the average quality of the questions would undoubtedly be higher and would make this thread more readable and enjoyable. The 5 question limit would also encourage more frequent posting as some people will be dying to ask more than 5 (and they'll have more time to think of better questions while waiting their turn too).

    Yes and everyone agreed it should be Kill Your Temps or nothing at all.

    KYT was boring...so it stopped happening. Eeeeeasy concept.

    Where's your British reserve and sense of decorum lurking? ;)
