[SPECIAL EVENT] scioly.org Admins/Mods AMA

Postby pikachu4919 » February 27th, 2019, 9:23 am

Hi everyone!

As per y'all's requests in this poll, we admins and mods are going to do an AMA (or...AUA? For Ask Us Anything instead of Ask Me Anything? Whatever...) for you guys!

We can answer all your questions about any of the following!
- our experiences in Div A/B/C (although not entirely sure Div A existed when we were that age)
- our experiences in Div D
- anything related to college admissions
- general advice about SciOly/school life

Currently, those who will be doing the AMA will be for us to know and you to find out, but this special event will be broadcasted live from our YouTube channel on Thursday, March 7, 2019 at 9:30 EST/6:30 PST. You can pm us questions to answer in advance, comment them in realtime on the live YouTube broadcast, or we will also watch over and take questions from IRC during the AMA as well! It's your chance to ask us anything - don't be afraid to take advantage of it!

Disclaimers:

This is not an SO, inc. officially sanctioned event.

We won't answer any questions that delve too far into our personal lives.

Only staff members who are 18 or older will be participating.

Dangit you didn't need to spoil your presence beforehand because I said it'd be for us to know and them to find out >:(

Anyways back on track tho, thanks to everyone who tuned into our AMA today! You can view the full video podcast here. We definitely had a lot of fun with it, we hope you guys enjoyed it too, and if y'all want us to do more in the future, we would love to do so! Feedback would be much appreciated and be on the lookout for more events like this in the future!
