GP Presents: Ask Me Anything

Be sure to read and follow the guidelines for our forums.

Nov 26, 2021 8:21 am
In an attempt to get to know the community and other users on GP better, we want to allow a different member each week to step into the spotlight for an Ask Me Anything (AMA).
The idea is for one person at a time to make a thread where everyone else can ask questions that the current AMA spotlighted user will do their best to answer (if they feel comfortable)
Anyone can sign up to get your own spot to host an AMA. Just message me or reply to this thread and I will put you on the waiting list. The reason why we're doing it this way instead of just letting everyone make their AMA posts at the same time is so nobody gets drowned out and ends up without any questions, which would be a real shame.

The rules:

- Each AMA will run for one week, then the next thread will be put up. Old AMA threads will not be locked but please focus on the current AMA each week if possible.
- There is no limit on how many questions one user can ask but please don’t try to dominate this thread by yourself and give other users the opportunity to also ask questions.
- Keep your questions respectful and don’t ask for personal information that users might be not be comfortable giving.
- Questions don’t have to exclusively be focused around RPGs but that should be the primary topic.
- If you are hosting an AMA, you are under no obligation to answer a question you don’t want to but please try to answer as many as you feel comfortable with. That makes this whole experience more fun. You’re free to joke around but please also be honest so people can get to know you.
- Anyone is welcome to sign up to host an AMA, whether you’ve been on the site since it was founded or just joined last week, as long as you’re enthusiastic and want to be a part of the community.

I wouldn't mind doing an AMA.

That’d be fun!

I'll do one, sounds fun!

Sounds like it might be fun. Good idea.

EDIT: Going to pass.

Sounds fun, add me to the list!

This sounds fun, I'd like to join too! :D

Sure, I could do it

I like answering questions. I'll do one.

Ah-ha! I wondered when you'd raise your head above the parapet. Perhaps you should be answering questions instead of asking them for a change.

I've debated finding a way to get you answering questions one of these days, @Qralloq. Maybe this is the way to do it.

I've not chimed in as watchers of the YouTube show know a bunch about me already, but I'm happy to be volunteered as tribute.

Sounds like fun, add me to the list :)

Heads up: For holiday reasons, we'll pause the AMA thingy for next week. You can use the time to ask KCC more questions (or some of the previous AMA people as well).
We'll start the next AMA up again after the holidays. Maybe on the first of January

Who’s up then?
Jan 5, 2022 12:17 pm
Argh, darn it! I keep forgetting about this when I'm on my computer and only remember when I'm not 😄

The AMA'ing will soon recommence!

I am going to throw my hat in because, why not? Might get me to interact here more outside of "magnitude" of games I am playing.

Also, a suggestion:
It would be beneficial to add a schedule table to the first post, that way we can all see who is up next and when to expect to be put on the spot for questioning. Maybe add links to previous AMAs for ease of navigating.

I had a schedule in my original draft but the mods said (and I agree) that that might lead to people looking forward to the next AMA more than focusing on the current one so I've decided not to have a schedule after all.

I didn't feel that a list of previous AMAs was necessary as the subforum contains only those AMAs and nothing else. But that wouldn't be hard to add so I could do that no problem

That makes sense. Although, unless the next participant is chosen randomly out of the pool of the willing tributes that can still be done by scrolling down the list.

Oh, right, I rarely go looking for a specific forum and usually go straight to the thread from Recent Posts. Links here would be redundant.
Jan 20, 2022 3:57 pm
I’ll do one as well!
Mar 2, 2022 6:01 pm
Count me in for an AMA as well.
Mar 2, 2022 6:02 pm
Awesome! Adding you to the list!
Mar 13, 2022 1:10 pm
I’m relatively new compared to other people who participated in this event but I feel connected to this sub-community, so why not deepen the connection further? I’d like to sign myself up.
Mar 20, 2022 7:51 pm
I’m brand spanking new but count me in nonetheless!
Mar 20, 2022 8:13 pm
Adding you to the list!

Sounds like fun. Count me in.
Apr 7, 2022 1:21 pm
Awesome! Adding you
Apr 10, 2022 2:51 pm
I'll give it a go too
Apr 10, 2022 3:47 pm
And me too, please.

Now that's the me too I wanted to see. :D


The former was stated in a humorous way and the intention of the post's writer wasn't to offend anyone.
The writer of this posts wants to express his sympathies to anyone who happened to experience something like that.
Apr 10, 2022 5:12 pm
Well heck, I might as well join the bandwagon!
Apr 10, 2022 5:19 pm
Looks like I won't have to worry about running out of guinea pigs that soon yet!

I think we need two weeks for this... or maybe three?

Also this is not a spot to ask about how the site works, we have Questions and Help for that.
Apr 27, 2022 7:28 pm
I'll take part in the AMA sessions.
Apr 27, 2022 7:32 pm
Put you on the list!
Apr 27, 2022 7:40 pm
I suppose I could take a turn as well
May 4, 2022 10:08 am
I may as well throw my hat into the ring.
