The A Degree (Cansteam)

Post by Nano » Sat Jan 14, 2017 2:17 am

Remember the ol' nth degree topics? Let's try this again, this time a few years later.
Old Rules wrote:1. Post expressing interest and I'll add you to the waiting list. Since I know very few members by real name and don't keep up with alts, you will be listed by current screen name.
2. Every Friday afternoon, I'll pick a random person from the waiting list to put in the hot seat and whoever was previously in the hot seat will be added to the already gone list. Since this could potentially go for months and members leave all the time, I'll try to check when a selected member was last active and if it was over a month ago, the member will be dropped for inactivity. Since I don't keep track of alts, if you change your screen name or create a new account that you use as your main, let me know so I can replace your old screen name with the new one and you don't get dropped.
3. Members aside from the person in the hot seat(including members who are neither waiting a turn in the hot seat or have already had a turn) will ask questions of the person in the hot seat. The person in the hot seat will then choose which questions to answer and will answer in as much or as little detail as they are comfortable with. The person in the hot seat is neither obligated to answer all questions given them nor are they obligated to give a reason for declining to answer.
4. In addition to keeping your questions and answers within the rules of Chao Island, please refrain from asking questions or giving answers for which you aren't prepared to handle the consequences of. Also, please refrain from badgering whoever is in the hot seat for declining to answer or providing answers that are unsatisfactory.
5. Keep in mind that this is supposed to be fun. If you are not having fun, I'd recommend backing out of the thread. If you want your name removed from the waiting list, just let me know and I'll remove you no questions asked.
6. *Added on 2015/05/17* If a question goes unanswered for more than 24 hours, someone other than the hot seat occupant may answer it. The hot seat occupant may still answer questions directed at them after this point.

I'll likely keep this up a few more days to make sure we get a good amount of people involved, but we'll be starting soon everyone.

It's a reference to the original topic's title, "the nth degree", which presumably is a reference to whatever high-class snoody british thing Retro was interested in at the time.

And just for future reference, Jeffery's post isn't the original. I'm almost certain Retro posted the original topic, but I can't find it. It sucks, too, because my original turn was in that one. Crying shame.

EDIT: I take everything back. The original topic was called "The Third Degree". Pain in the ass considering if it was one number place further along the number line, you'd be able to find it by searching "th degree", but nope. But, I was right about Retro making the original topic.

EDIT2; there's a rabbit hole of sorts. Apparently after the original, Chocolate Chao started the first "second" topic called "The Fourth Degree". So I guess this would technically be the true "Fourth Degree"?

Whoa, I'm in no way a snoody british dude alright and I don't just find interesting in things and then drop them. Like everything I post to keep discussion up it's stolen from another forum.

So take THAT, Nova!

I think there might have also been a fifth degree topic at some point. I named the version I hosted the Nth degree because I wasn't sure what number we were up to plus I repopulated the waiting list at least once after the thread's initial set-up, which I'm not sure was done with earlier threads.

The original version being called The Third Degree was probably a reference to the idiom "give them the third degree" meaning to interrogate someone with the fourth and fifth degrees simply adding one to the ordinal of the previous thread and my version using the mathematical term for an arbitrary ordinal. No idea why Fox Boy dropped the ordinals altogether.

But yeah, this thread is the latest of several iterations.

Why do hikers climb mountains?

If the candles on your birthday cake had 1 less than the number of years old you were, but you could see a perfectly good unopened pack of candles, would you complain?

Are you hype for... Specter Knight???

Is it better to drink contaminated river water or saltwater from the ocean?

Dragon! There is a dragon attacking your castle! What will you do?

Are you concerned that I'm asking 5 main questions instead of 10 this time?
