Welcome to X-Files News!
Gillian Anderson will be doing an "Ask Me Anything" thread on Reddit on May 16th at 10am ET. Frank Spotnitz did a succeful AMA last fall, but if you weren't around for that and aren't familiar with Reddit, here's what you need to know.
Reddit is basically a giant internet message board for everything and anything. From cute animal photos to The X-Files, there is a subreddit for everything! Users post links or self posts and they are voted up or down by users. The same is true of comments. In return, the poster gets "karma" (useless internet points) for their contribution. The top threads with the most upvotes end up on the front page of Reddit, and those downvoted to oblivion never see the light of day.
Gillian will be doing an AMA in the IAmA subreddit which hosts threads where users can ask questions of people with unusual jobs or life circumstances that the public may be interested in. There are average people who do AMAs and then there are threads from Barack Obama and Bill Gates. There was even an AMA done by an astronaut orbiting Earth.
If you would like to participate in the AMA, either by asking a question or upvoting/downvoting other questions, you'll need to register for an account. It's simple enough to do, though. Just go to the top right corner of the page and create one.
All that's left to do then is mark your calendars, and we'll see you on May 16th.
