    Hi, folks! :)

    There's no episode this weekend (boo!) so we thought we'd open up an "Ask the Staff Anything" thread instead. Your challenge, should you choose to accept it, is to ask us... well, anything!

    Questions can be fun or serious, and can be about UK of E, MLP or something completely different! We can't guarantee which admins or moderators will be online at any particular time, so try not to make your questions specific to one person.

    We've kept rules to a minimum:

    1) Only staff members can answer questions. That's kind of the point of the thread. :p
    2) Usual forum rules apply, so please keep your questions appropriately family-friendly.

    Wait for it... okay, go! :D

    A giant ball pit, the Twilicane and a key to the universe. We keep losing the last one, though.

    If you were a soup, what flavoured soup would you be?

    Tomato. Just look at the colour of my mane! Also, tomatoes are shy and hide underground, but are wonderful and shiny once they're out in the light. This analogy may need some work. :p

    Have a few questions

    Are there any forum changes large or small in the pipeline?

    Lately there has been a lot of discussion of cons and meets an the forums, would the forum ever consider doing official UKoE events whether they be organised meets or even a full con?

    Is this threat a short term event or is it to remain a perfect fixture of the forum?

    Heh, all these questions coming in while hardly any of us except me are online. You absolute fiends! :p
    You know, Zootropolis/Zootopia is genuinely in the running for this. I really, really like it.
    Not much. It's only a choc ice with a silly name. :p
    1) Wait and see. :p But what I will say is that we do read everything people post in the Community Suggestions section, even if we don't have anything specific to say in reply. So if there's something you'd like to see, that's the place to mention it.

    2) See the previous point, really. My personal view is that UK of E does better providing encouragement and discussion about events than actually organising them directly.

    3) This event is being left open-ended, so it depends to a good extent on how much interest there is. :)
    Yes. So I guess we can close this down now. ;)

    Probably The Lion King, though there are many more on my favourites list.
    Nothing, I'm lactose intolerant.
    There are no large forum changes upcoming, to my knowledge. Though, as @Loganberry if there's something you'd like to suggest, drop a message in the suggestions section and we'll give it a look.

    About meets, the forum used to arrange fairly regular 'official' meets. I used to run the annual Party In The Park at Hampstead Heath every summer, though since I started university my free time has been drastically reduced. We also used to run monthly cinema meets at the O2 in London (again, something I started, but was taken over magnificently my @BRJ) again, these were dropped due to time constraints mostly. Personally, I'd like to try and get something like this up and running again, do something to bring to forum together , but we're all busy people and finding the time is a real problem.

    With regards to conventions, those are a different beast altogether, they require a lot more work and money than a simple meet, and we just wouldn't be able to get something like that organised.

    As for this thread, again as @Loganberry said, we're going to run this for as long as y'all have questions for us ;)
    Apparently so ;)

    Just out of curiosity, roughly how many staff members are there? I get the feeling there may be a few who don't really post all that often, but work in the background to keep everything ticking over for us, so that we may use this marvellous forum for free.

    My hopes and dreams

    Lentil, because I'm just that plain

    It's a toss-up between Ghostbusters, Back to the Future and Monty Python and The Holy Grail for me

    For the last time, YES!

    Things are going good. The Java-shaped hole still isn't quite fixed yet.

    In reference to the meets, would it not be an idea to make the frequent meets that are organised via the forum (but by non mods) official UKoE meets?

    30th May according to Amazon.

    There's honestly too many games I love to pick just one. As for my favourite episode, Hurricane Fluttershy.
