I miss them ;_;
Although I've answered this on my ama, I don't think I've given the full statement to why I used to spam amas so frequently.
First off I'm not gonna lie, part of it was for attention, but not all of it. I mainly didn't like he way users like vlade or raze kinda distanced themselves from the community and acted like that "cool silent kid." It just really pissed me off as well when the community (especially those fucking artists) would circlejerk users from having fun. It even got so bad people resorted to stealing art and posting it to meme center just to fit in the artist community.
I disliked the way how a new artist who's followers would grow over night was noticed, yet a regular user who was on this site for years was barley heard of. I hated the way how small users acted like they personally knew bigger users who didn't even give a shit about them.
So to break the circlejerk I resorted to asking questions on amas. I'm not gonna lie and say I never ignored a user, though that was kinda the point of doing the ama stuffs, but hey...I'm not perfect :P
Asking questions on a user's ama was a way to give some exposure to a new user in the meme center community and even create a bridge to become "internet buddies." It's also helps encourage users to keep posting content on this site and make them not feel totally invisible.
So ya, I actually take it seriously from time to time, but I shouldn't become obsessive over it.
or you can spew random shit like: On a scale of one to ten, what's your favorite color of the alphabet?
