    User interview topic, in here are the sources of previous interviews, as well as the people who have yet to be interviewed. The main focus of the interviews is not only to bring to light what people do to map, but to try and point people who are lost in the huge world of mapping in the right direction.

    Users who have signed up are selected though a random hat draw.

    /believes there should be some quality control here, perhaps authors with finished maps only?

    Aye, I was thinking about that, however I know there there are probably a few people here with very nice maps, which are unfinished. at the moment, I am willing to accept most people, but if I decide against someone it'll be based upon there quality of work, as well as other people's opinions of them. - I think that is a fair way to judge on "Quality control"

    if you do a quality control anyways, why would people have to sign up, in the first run. i mean, now if someone applies and you turn him down, it may leave harsh feelings for you. instead you could just have picked your desired interview partners and everyone would be glad to participate :)
    now it has that competetive thing going on - just my feelings, though, i guess.

    Yeah, but then he would just pick the most popular ones and some good mappers would be left unpicked

    True that. but doing it this way get's the whole thing more noticed so that people are able to go "oh hay that fellow is gonna be doing interviews and the such". plus, doing it this way can iron out any flaws like we're doing at the moment :B

    well, since you get in touch with the site's mastermind and go frontpage with the interviews (*hint*hint*) will gather much attention anyways :D
    I'm equally thrilled to read the interviews. make sure some nice mapping habit insights will be included. oversecretly secrets and workflow and stuff :D

    I'll gladly do it as long as it's nothing too personal.
