Gabe Newell is holding a Reddit AMA today...and it's March 3...3/3
UPDATE: The AMA is on hold, but not cancelled yet.
We'll begin emailing you updates about %gameName%.
Reddit posted the following update regarding the Reddit AMA with Gabe Newell previously schedule for today:
Hey everyone: just wanted to give you an update on the status of Gabe Newell's AMA.
Earlier this morning, he posted an announcement saying that he was planning to host an AMA later this afternoon (4 pm EST, 1 pm PST). The moderators responded with information about how to submit his AMA when the time comes, which we normally do with announcement posts. The thread was then locked the thread (disallowed new coments) and removed all other comments so that this information would be the only thing visible, making it easier for him to find.
Unfortunately, since then, no one has heard from Mr. Newell. We've been constantly monitoring his Reddit account, and the admins have reached out through their contacts at Valve. But unfortunately, after an hour of waiting, we have been unable to confirm anything. It is possible that he intended to answer on a different date (which does occassionally happen sometimes).
We'll keep you all up to date, but we know this was anticipated so we wanted to make sure you know what happened. When we do get in touch with him, he will either create a new AMA, or possibly will be added to our calendar, so keep an eye out both there and the /new queue. Just to be clear: there is no indication that the AMA is cancelled; just that we don't know when he plans to actually come answer questions.
Thank you all for your patience, and we're all looking forward to this AMA.
The original story appears below:
Valve boss Gabe Newell is holding an Ask Me Anything (AMA) session today on Reddit. Interestingly, Newell decided to hold the AMA on the third day of the third month. That's multiple references to "three," which fans will no doubt associate with the long-awaited Half-Life 3.
The Reddit AMA begins this afternoon at 13:00 PDT (another reference to Half-Life 3?!). We will, of course, monitor the AMA and keep you in the loop with any announcements or teases that Valve's beloved leader brings to his legions of fans.
In January, Newell promised that he would conduct an AMA with Reddit users if donations to a charity event called The Heart of Racing reached $500,000. It appears that the milestone has been reached.
