Over the weekend, Mandy from AMAfeed reached out to us via email and invited us to host an AMA using their service. This blog post contains all the details you’ll need to know if you want to participate!
But first, for those of you unfamiliar with the acronym ‘AMA’…
What The Heck Is An ‘AMA’?
The acronym AMA stands for “Ask Me Anything.” It’s a time honored tradition on the web that goes back to the days of AOL and message boards, where users would open themselves up to any line of questioning for a short period of time. The practice has gained recent popularity on the website Reddit, where even Barack Obama hosted one of these events during his tenure as President of the United States.
These tend to be accompanied by some kind of verification photo (see above) to prove that the person is who they say they are. It’s unfortunately very common for people to pretend to be Morgan Freeman when they are in fact not Morgan Freeman. The good thing is, we’re too small to even get copy-catted. It’s definitely us!
We always answer your fan emails and Twitter messages. But the purpose of hosting one of these AMA events is to take questions en masse for a few days and also advertise the game to complete strangers. As the name implies, you can ask us anything – the only questions we will refuse to answer are those that would cause us to break a contractual Non-Disclosure Agreement.
How Does This Work At #AMAfeed?
Our AMA can be found at this link. In order to ask us a question, you’ll either need to make an account with #AMAfeed or connect an existing social media account. Personally, I prefer not to make accounts with websites like this that I may not use too often. I just connected the Game Revenant Twitter account to #AMAfeed and it’s worked just fine so far.
You can ask whatever you want, whenever you want, and I will answer. However, my answers will not appear until Wednesday, December 20th at 3:00 pm when this thing officially launches. It’s cool – they give the hosts a grace period of 48 hours to answer questions so that it’s not overwhelming. When Morgan Freeman did one of these, he was getting at least 100 questions every hour. (But was that truly Morgan Freeman?)
This event will end on December 24th at 3:00 pm since I won’t be available to answer questions during Christmas anyway.
The Where Shadows Slumber team looks forward to your interesting questions! See you on #AMAfeed…
And stay tuned for our April 1st #AMAfeed post, where we’ll be pretending to be award-winning actor Morgan Freeman!
