What is an AMA?
AMA stands for “Ask Me Anything.” It’s a format for hosting online discussions, where the audience asks questions of the guest speaker during a set amount of time. The format became popular on Reddit, but we hold our AMAs on our community Discord server.
To participate in an AMA, simply log into our server during the scheduled time and post questions under the #ask-me-anything channel. If the speaker has agreed to do a voice chat, we’ll also ask you to join the 🔊AMA-Voice voice-chat channel. If you know you can’t be online for a particular AMA, feel free to post your question on the channel during the days leading up to the event.
We try to schedule each AMA during different times of the day in order to accommodate for different timezones. So if one AMA is scheduled at an inconvenient time,
the next one might be scheduled at a better time for you.
