I've got this idea from mafiascum where everyone takes turns writing a "Get to know (member) threads.

What I'm proposing is that like the mafia mod list and tournament mod list, what if we have an AMA list where people put their names down and each friday, the next person on the list starts an AMA.

Right now, there are so many AMAs, I feel like we can't give all of them the attention it deserves.

I'm not proposing is as a rule or a restriction. I'm just wondering if everybody will find it more fun/enjoyable if each person's AMA turns out to be a big "event" that we wait for, and then during that week, the person doing the AMA has the attention of the site.

If this is something people would find fun, we could start a list in the personal forum.

This sounds like a good idea.

Love this idea. If I see some people in the future signed up for an AMA, I might even look forward to it. It might also get new people coming out and help curb some people doing 8, 9, 10 AMA's in a row lol

I find this ironic because Romanii brought this up to Endark as a joke to ridicule his point of view.

For some reason, whenever I see Romanii and Endark, I imagine them as brothers. Quarreling brothers. Like Mongoose and Mongeese. Anybody remember them? No?

This is hilarious because Romanii and I agree on so much that we find it nearly impossible to debate one another. xD

I don't see the reason for a cue.

People are capable of reading, and affording due attention to any individual AMA as they desire, regardless of the volume of AMA's in a particular forum.

If an AMA gets neglected, it's because people aren't as interested in it. This shouldn't be surprising. Some members are more popular and interesting than others.

Pretty much agree with this, actually.

I agree so much. The Personal forum is being over-run with them.

Still curious about this. Most people that posted seem to support this but I'm interested in more people weighing in. If the vast majority of us can agree, I could start a queue thread in the personal forum for people to sign up.

I like it a lot. It allows for a learning experience for members who aren't as involved.

I like the idea but I dont' really agree with it. People usually do AMAs for a reason. For example to celebrate x number of posts. And occassionally people to birthday AMAs. That system would completely mess that up.

This would have been a fantastic idea when the AMA craze was about to kick into full swing, but now that all of them have already been made, I dont see much reason for it now.... A user isnt going to remake a new AMA when one already exists, and since so many people have made AMA's already, the number of people left who could make one who havent already made one I dont think is a large enough number to warrant having a queue for it..... Its not like DDO adds 10 to 20 big members a day, a lot of the AMA phase has passed
