There is one for games, don't see why there shouldn't be one for these.
Yep. They clutter up chat. Gets on my nerves.
I'm more concerned with the epidemic levels of sheer laziness demonstrated by so many people that dump their threads in Chat because they can't be arsed to find the right forum.
Chat is the right place for AMA threads. I don't think there's a big enough demand to warrant a dedicated subforum, but this is the Community Section's call.
In fact, just to characterise this issue with some hard data, there were 3 AMA threads in Chat in the last 24 hours. That's nowhere near enough to warrant its own subforum, in my opinion.
There was 1 interesting user AMA from a convicted hacker ages ago.
The rest were all fairly boring.
The third year drop-out was a good one but could have been more interesting somewhere on the forum as people nervous about going to uni then dropping out etc may not ahve seen it here.
The problem as Vlad has said is that you need to be able to justify creating a new sub forum. Although there was a peak in AMA threads, the problem that you now have is that creating a new forum at this stage can:
1. cause users to get confused and give more moving work to the chat mods as there will be stuff that shouldn't be in there and vice versa
2. actually have a low traffic rate
No this is the most stupid idea since hitler attacks the russians
