Is the AMA now out of date?

BarthaxBarthax ✭✭✭

It's great to see Andrew Krug committed to another AMA - many thanks for all the past efforts on the AMAs.

However, with the community forums and anyone can ask any question on any subject, is the focal point into an AMA actually necessary? Are the forums not an AMA Anytime equivalent (though not focused for Mr. Krug)?


Current & first AMA on the forums: https://community.ingress.com/en/discussion/1308/june-july-ingress-ask-me-anything-ama

    Not really.

    Yes, Nia is answering questions in this community but to find those you would have to search each one.

    The AMA's collect the answers in single topics.

    Your answer tickled me - I don't find searching previous AMAs (when they were accessible) any less work than searching the forum, or G+ or the curated AMA history. :) For me, that just isn't a factor - having an answer available in a location that Google's search engine will pick up is far more accessible.

    At this juncture both avenues are neither more nor less likely to be answered - especially given the amount of Qs targeted at one individual in the AMA means lots will go unanswered, leaving a bunch of disappointment and a mound of preparations to repeat the same deluge next month.

    Leave a message anywhere on this forum, and someone official might look at it. Leave a question on the AMA and you know that @RedSoloCup will at least read it, and he will answer it if he can. There's no guarantee of that sort of attention anywhere else.

    With the added possibility that it'll get mentioned internally even if not answered during the A phase of AMA. Good point. :)
