I got an email telling me I was eligible for this... And to be honest, I like the idea (free-to-me game? Who wouldn't?!), but there is one thing I am wondering about that I haven't really seen addressed either in the above thread or the linked other thread... Perhaps I missed it, but I went over both places twice...
What is expected of me should I apply and get accepted?
Only place I saw this mentioned was in the email I received telling me about this.
What's the catch?
Merely that you ask questions, and post answers about the new game you got on Gaming Stack Exchange. Involve the community in your game. In other words, have fun while helping us create the best gaming Q&A site on the internet!
Ok, that's great and all, but what, exactly, is expected of me?
Some games I'll play through and not have a single question of it. Normally, that isn't an issue. But with something like this, I'll feel bad about not having anything to contribute back, and it certainly wouldn't look good on me. Alternatively, I could make some questions up, but they usually feel... forced...
On the flip side, I also don't want to use the Stack Exchange sites as my own personal Google either. I tend to dislike when people do that, personally, but for all I know, that might be the expectation.
Even if it's all a bit fuzzier than all that, I'm fine with that, but I do feel this is something I need to know before I apply. Last thing I want is to spam my favorite sites because I feel obligated to when I'm not actually expected to.
