Wow, thanks guys! I've gotten a lot of experts already emailing me.(I promise not to spam you with lots of Thor/Loki fanfic, but really, I promise nothing.) KEEP 'EM COMING!!
Here is a tentative schedule for the expert AMA so far. I'm doing them kinda in the order I received them, with the exceptions noted from the experts. Since I started this hoo-ha, I'll get things rolling. If the schedule doesn't work for an expert, let me know:
April 25th - Drillpress - Fashion design, patternmaking, millinery. Ask me anything about sewing you want. Got a cosplay pattern issue? I'm your guy. Want to make a hat? I'll help you.
May 2 - Irae Nicole - Trans issues. Ask her anything about the trans community.
May 9 - Quasi Hatrack - Algebra and Geometry. Where were you during my school days? Ask him anything about numbers.
May 16 - BangIShotYou - Computer and Android system questions. He really knows his way around a hard drive. Ask him your system and security questions.
May 23 - Dr Emilio Lizardo - Oncology. Have a pressing issue with cancer? The good doctor is here to answer your questions.
May 30 - Xeos - Nine Inch Nails. Rock on with Xeos as he answers all of your Reznor issues. He also can help you with your urban fantasy questions.
June 6 - Faz.alam - Microbiology. Got a microscopic itch you can't scratch? Faz.alam is here to help!
June 13 - Zuludaddy - Sailing/Oceanography and Linguistics. Well, I think he wins for most non-sequitur topics covered, but dammit, I have a few dozen questions for him. Do you?
June 20 - Frank N Stein - Germanand Germany. Want to know how to say something in German. Ask away! Want to know about the country in general? Stein's your guy! (Frank, I suggest you get ready to translate a large group of swear words.)
June 27 - Neisseria - Immunology. Want to know how our body fights diseases and allergies? I know I do! Ask away
July 4 - Off for 'Murican holiday
July 11 - TechNoir - Publishing and copyrighting. Want to know how the wheels of the publishing industry work? Ask away. Want to infringe some copyrights? Well shame on you! But ask anyway.
OK, That's what's on tap so far. I'll keep this up as long as you all want me to. If a date doesn't jive with an expert, email me and I'll see if I can push it back or forward.
In the meantime, get your questions ready.
Remember, this is all in fun, our experts will answer the questions they can, but hey no one is perfect. BE NICE and if they can help you, they will. Also, don't forget to keep it on topic and let's avoid personal issues. Here are a couple of examples:
Good question: What are skin moles?
Bad question: Could you take a look at this mole on my cheek and tell me if it's infected? [includes picture]
FINE LINE PEOPLE.
Mine tomorrow is going to be the dry run to see how it operates. I'll post the functioning rules in my post tomorrow. I'll open the post up at around 8 AM US Central time and we'll see how it goes from there. Since our experts are all over the map, times may vary. They'll do what they can, but they are human (mostly) so don't get all butthurt if your question doesn't get answered. Let's keep this casual, folks.
Did I forget anything?
