It's just a huge network that promotes stories with up and down votes. It's actually a great system for seeing new content and it's filters out allot of new garbage, etc. The Iama Reddit portion is just like this thread except for everyone. AMA means ask me anything. You just put what you, are, and did and if anyone has questions you answer them. Good portion of them will be sarcastic and dbaggish i'm sure but i'm sure we could up vote it enough to get people to at least look at it and i'm sure there will be allot of genuinely curious people out there. I would just look at a few like this one is http://www.reddit.com/r/IAmA/comment...l_intern_amaa/ - just someone who interned at Marvel etc who answers questions. Allot of people who travel go on and say what they did or sports people get on, etc.

Just go to http://www.reddit.com/r/IAmA/

You'll need to create a reddit account (top right), then make sure you're on the IamA page still, (if not click above link again) then click "submit a link" it's about half way down on the right hand side.

Give your post the title of something like

"I am Paul McBeth the 2012 Disc Golf World Champion, AMA"

Then hit submit link, and it'll create the thread. If you get around to it you might as well post the link to the thread here too.

Personally I think he should schedule it ahead of time and get it put on the sidebar schedule. I think the benefit of Paul doing an AMA as opposed to just answering questions here would be to get some exposure for the sport to people that may have not known about it otherwise... And the best path to that on IAmA is to get it on the schedule so there's a better chance for all users to see that it's coming and would draw in more people to ask some questions.

That's not a bad idea at all, it just requires a little more work/planning.

Paul if you want to go that route, you'll need to message the moderators. It's a little link on the far right hand side, almost at the bottom.

Do you plan to play the Wrightwood tourney this year?

Do you adjust your throw or swap discs out of your bag to compensate for the elevation in Wrightwood?
