The procedures for IAMA???

[url=http://www.bungie.net/Forums/posts.aspx?postID=76132019&postRepeater1-p=1] This thread comes to mind[/url] People may have unique jobs/done cool things which can make interesting discussion. How should we approach this? Should a user PM a mod with proof and then have a mod edit the thread saying it is "confirmed"?

Like Foman hinted at, I doubt threads would remain on topic.[/quote] If they get off topic they should be locked. Deej makes threads of similar nature with the breaking in articles. Our community has many interesting people and they may have interesting topics to make about their profession or their day. [/quote] The Breaking In articles are nothing like AMAs. Even if they were, it's relevant to the community because the subject of the BI article is an employee of Bungie. Some random community member making an AMA is just off-topic to begin with, I doubt they'd have anything interesting enough about them to sustain an entire thread while remaining on-topic.

Anyways, I'm sure it was the part about spamming somebody's inbox, not the part about it being a lie.[/quote] I am a, it is basically an abbreviation for the same thing as on Reddit which is people post stories about what they have done or who they are. (like famous people, people with cool jobs, etc). [/quote] You do realize that it's 'AMA', and that it stands for 'Ask Me Anything', right?

  • I lock all AMA threads I come across here. They do not remain on-topic, are often flamebait, are rarely interesting, and nearly always spawn parody threads. Reddit's format is FAR better suited to AMA threads than this forum. So the procedure for AMA threads is don't post them.

  • This brings us back to a few 'I'm a girl on the internet ask me anything and i'll do a video reply' threads a month or two ago. I said it was stupid and should have been locked, nothing was done. lol.

  • Let me reword what I said. I cannot think of any other site that does regular AMA's, while off-topic threads and forums are present on every type of site that has forums. [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] dazarobbo [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] GPK Ethan AMA's are almost solely found on that site[/quote]Just as almost every other conceivable topic is. Why bother having this discussion here if we could be having it on Reddit instead?[/quote] To answer your second retort/question. I don't really have a solid idea as to why, it's just my opinion. I feel as though B.Net is a completely different kind of site when compared to Reddit, so maybe that's where I get my it from. [Edited on 12.02.2012 11:06 PM PST]

  • As previously stated, there's nothing to really approach. And Ask Me Anythings are useful because you get to ask more about their career than what they do. Insight about the average work day, shenanigans, and what not. [Edited on 12.02.2012 10:47 PM PST]

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] CrazzySnipe55 IMO, these threads are dumb. If I cared about your profession, I would look it up myself. If you want to make a thread with discussion value about a profession, then that's fine. But just "I'm a _______, ask me questions!" is not. ©[/quote]Agreed.

  • There's nothing to approach. You can post whatever you life as long as you follow the rules of this website. People can either choose to believe your or not. The difference between what you're suggesting and what was linked was that the linked thread was designed to harass someone.
