Maybe a group AMA thread would be a good idea, where everyone can post a comment that they are happy to answer questions?
Another idea is to set up conditional AMAs, e.g. “I will commit to doing an AMA if at least n people commit to asking questions.” This has the benefit of giving each AMA its own time (without competing for attention with other AMAs) while trying to minimize the chance of time waste and embarrassment.
This is a nice idea!
One slight downside of a group AMA thread is that it’s not quite as easily indexable as smaller AMA threads would be (harder to get good tags on it, harder for people to know it’s a thing they’re interested in based on the title). But I still think it would be a clear net positive if this were to exist.
I could post one of these, but I think it would also be good to have it come from a more grassroots source than the head moderator—Denise, would you be down to post something, assuming that you would be willing to answer questions on some topic? (I can also do it, just wanted to give you the first shot.)
