What do you want to know about your QBs? (in Contests)

[T]Vestax September 17 2005 1:04 PM EDT

I am glad to announce that we have 13 qualified nominees for this upcoming QB elections. Now we would like to know what questions you would like the nominees to answer. Try to think of what is an important thing you would like to know about your QB before you vote for them.

Any non-serious questions will be removed from the post. Yes that does include you Mrwuss. I have a sense of humor and yes I can take a joke, but now is not the time.</preemptive strike>

YNM September 17 2005 2:54 PM EDT

who are they? i think that's a good question.

Rubberduck[T] [Hell Blenders] September 17 2005 3:15 PM EDT

What are their views on the NUB :P

RedWolf September 17 2005 3:41 PM EDT

perhaps he doesn't want to name them until after he has the questions, so nobody can make up a question specific to any one nominee :-)

QBRanger September 17 2005 3:44 PM EDT

What do they think the responsibilities are of the QB, if elected?

AdminShade September 17 2005 3:55 PM EDT

RedWolf, they should do an introduction, that was his question :)

WeaponX September 17 2005 4:00 PM EDT

what would being QB mean to you?

RedWolf September 17 2005 4:10 PM EDT

ah i misunderstood :-)

How about a brief summary of their CB history?

YNM September 17 2005 6:00 PM EDT

Do you wish for world peace?
Fighting or forging?
What will you do for us as a community?

QBsutekh137 September 17 2005 6:04 PM EDT

"Nominee, tell us about other gaming experiences you have had, (online or otherwise), and how those experiences stack up to CB. If you are a heavy gamer, why have you stuck with CB as opposed to something else?"

NSFY September 17 2005 8:40 PM EDT

"Do you have a sense of humor?"

"Do you have enough of a sense of humor to offset the deep dark black hole of anti-humor currently occupying QB space?"

"Do you think your wit is sharp enough to let the wind out of any blowhards that you may encounter?"

QBRanger September 17 2005 9:03 PM EDT

I sense some jealously and bitterness from NSFY about his not being nominated for QB.

Don't worry NSFY, I think there is a seat for you at the Bah Humbug table in the I Wish I Was Liked restaurant in the I'm A Bloody Fool section of the city of I'm A Total Putz.

Im sure you took all day and night to just think up that witty statement in your post. Now you can go back to the coma you currently are in.

Nixon Jibfest September 17 2005 9:07 PM EDT

me thinks our QB has a touch of a sense of humor after all... and a pretty smart one, too.

RAMPAGE September 17 2005 9:19 PM EDT

Are you still active on CB1?

What would you do for a Klondike Bar?(Sorry but Psyche said she give me one if I asked) =)

QBBast [Hidden Agenda] September 17 2005 9:35 PM EDT

If you were Sun Tzu, or Machiavelli if you prefer, how would you write the book of CB?

How do you embody the Spirit of QB?

What do you have still to learn re: CB?

Undertow September 17 2005 9:41 PM EDT

Crispy bacon or soggy bacon?

Ninjas or pirates or space marines?

QBBast [Hidden Agenda] September 17 2005 10:07 PM EDT

I forgot one: With which character from The Wizard of Oz do you most identify?

Special J September 17 2005 10:07 PM EDT

Can I fine people who type with a horrible OCD in using capital letters, seriously?

{CB1ate}aupStar September 17 2005 11:43 PM EDT

What I'd most like to know is.....

Do you like chicken..? (mmmmmm chicken...)

Maelstrom September 18 2005 3:50 AM EDT

Ouch Vicious, that's harsh! :o

Bullet, this is the thread for questions to ask, not for nominees to answer. There was a reason why the nominees haven't yet been made public.

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] September 18 2005 6:42 AM EDT

Space Marines guys! Gotta be Space Marines! Grey Knights in particular. Especially with their cool new archaic armour. (Although the Nemisis Force Weapon has been nerfed in its most recent incarnation)

War Gaming / Board gaming parents FTW! ;)

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] September 18 2005 6:43 AM EDT

Oh, and are the same questions that were asked last time going to be available to ask again?


Xiaz on Hiatus September 18 2005 8:37 AM EDT

Does a QB really represent the very nature of CB, or is it purely a popularity contest?

If you did become QB, what could you do to better the community?

AdminShade September 18 2005 9:03 AM EDT

Why should you become QB instead of the 12 others?

If you had to pick another one of the 13 nominees yourself, who do you think should become QB and why?

Do you need the 'bling bling' QB in front of your name to make people truly notice your quality or is it merely some honor that people give you rather than being the necessary extra you need yourself?

Sukotto [lookingglas] September 18 2005 1:25 PM EDT

An improbable cosmic accident just happened and you are granted a super power. Is it invisibility, or flight?

{CB3}-HR22 September 18 2005 1:51 PM EDT

Why should I vote for you?
What is more special about you than the buy next to you?
Do you plan to do any thing special if you get your QB, or are you gonig to sit there and look at the 2 pretty letters?


Nixon Jibfest September 18 2005 1:54 PM EDT

1. Identify something you can do to make yourself more deserving of the QB?
2. Do you plan on doing it?
3a. If so, how and when do you plan on implementing it?
3b. If not, what has prevented you from doing so previously?

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] September 18 2005 2:20 PM EDT

Sukotto, that's limiting! ;)

Obviously, the only powers people would want are Healing Factor, Probability Manipulation or Telepathy! ;) Invisibility is only used for perving and teleportation beats flight hands down! ;)

[Redneck RV] Truc September 18 2005 2:20 PM EDT

Name one tangible and one intangible way that you have attempted to improve CB2.

Maelstrom September 18 2005 2:36 PM EDT

GL, the benefit of flight is that you can, you know, fly. Who cares about flying as a method of transportation! And teleportation is a power for lazy superheros :p

{CB1ate}aupStar September 18 2005 9:55 PM EDT

How much money will you pay me for my vote...? ;)

Sukotto [lookingglas] September 18 2005 10:42 PM EDT

GL, it's supposed to be a limiting question. And discussing the relative merits of each influences the QBs making the question less relevant.

Relic September 19 2005 12:41 AM EDT

There are two questions I would ask...

1) Do you want to be QB?
2) Why/Why Not?

Stephen Young September 19 2005 8:25 AM EDT

Boxers or Briefs?

This is NOT a joke question. It's ability to explain the finer workings of the human psyche are unparalleled. ;)

Stephen Young September 19 2005 8:27 AM EDT

Doh! Morning Grammar at work up there. *is* --not "are"-- unparalleled.

Duke September 20 2005 12:20 AM EDT

Those question are like the same that HR ask you when you go to a interview.I found those to have no point in RL so in CB.I do like ranger Q what is expected of a QB.

5583 days old {Gaza} September 20 2005 1:20 AM EDT

What about you is it that you would identify with as meritting association with previous cb1 & cb2 QB's?

Duke September 20 2005 12:11 PM EDT

Dont ask them any question let them chose what they want to speak about in there letter to the community.Last time all respond were alike.

AdminQBVerifex [Serenity In Chaos] September 20 2005 3:10 PM EDT

A good thing to ask the next QBs would be...
"Are you going to quit with the next round of changes that affects you negatively?"

[T]Vestax September 21 2005 2:11 AM EDT

Closed to suggestions. Not all questions will be chosen. In fact I may have to be very selective in order to spare the nominees the headache of answer all of these.

Thank you all for the responses.
