Petition for brandon to do a WOT "question of the week"

I have loved reading all the Q&A from the book tours that has been amazing.  It reminded me of when RJ used to do "questions of the week".  These were great and gave awesome new insight into the Wheel of Time.  Can we get a petition going for brandon to answer one question per week similar to those that were answered on the book tour?  Who's for it?  me! :)

 

Here's a link to the old questions of the week I found: http://13depository.blogspot.com/2009/03/tor-questions-of-week.html

The answers would probably need to come from the notes.  The allowed amount of information to be given would probably be limited while the main series is being written.

 

Edit::  Also, the number of weeks may be limited; like it was the first time.

He does regular blog posts about stuff he's doing and annotations on his other books - so giving readers more info is clearly something he enjoys doing and nothing slows brandon down.  He's amazingly quick at writing books.  We got warbreaker like not even a year ago, then gathering storm AND he's releasing way of kings volume one this year AND we'll probably Towers of Midnight for christmas 2010!!!! That's awesome.

 

He can't annotate new wheel of time books yet (until the series is done) but he can clearly answer questions because he's done it, especially about past books and things we won't get answers to in future books.  Maria could probably find the answer for him or tell him if its a question he can't answer.

 

This kind of thing would keep people interested in Wheel of Time while the next book is being written and would be great for fan sites because it would give us something new to talk about each week.  

 

One question could be selected each week by the webmaster of alternating websites like dragonmount, or otherwise brandon could just pick one.  It could be done on TOR's website like the old questions of the week or brandon's own website, or both.

 

It would be great if jason or someone could talk to him about this idea.  Who else is for this?

Questions of the Week would be awesome. If it slows down BS sufficiently, maybe we could have Harriet, Maria or That Other Assistant do them.

 

Or, you know, we could just wait until Harriet's Encyclopedia comes out. I'm far too excited about a fictional nonfiction book that won't be published for at least 3 years. *sigh*.

Of the people that would have enough time to do this, Harriet would probably know the most about Wheel of Time.

 

Bump :) comeon people don't you want to have more answers before TOM comes about so we get new stuff to talk about?  ;D

A portion of the knowledge might be revealed in Towers of Midnight.

Harriet's an editor and I think she also works on books for TOR.  Sure, maria could write the answers to the questions and brandon could post them.  

 

By the way, Brandon just gave a RAFO on twitter today to a question asked by someone on twitter.  Twitter allows sentences to short to give almost any answer than yes/no or RAFO though so he should probably answer them on his blog or TOR's website or a combination.

 

Who else wants questions of the week?
