Welcome to the Sylvia Massy Q&A, kicking off on January 29th. If you haven't participated in a Q&A on Gearslutz before or if you need a refresher about how it works, here you go -
1) All questions and followup questions will be moderated in advance... submit your question once as a new thread and it will appear at some point if it's approved. If it's not approved it's either because we feel it's too far off topic or it may actually simply be a duplicate of another question that's also in the queue (although we will sometimes merge multiple questions into one thread if the overarching topic is the same). Short and to-the-point questions that are of interest to all are far more likely to make it through than complex, rambling posts!
Please don't bug us asking "where's my question!?!" - we'll get to everything eventually, and if it doesn't ever show up then see above.
2) Please don't answer questions for Sylvia!
3) Sylvia will do her best to answer followup questions but please keep in mind she's busy IRL as well and may not get to everything.
The Q&A is scheduled to run until February 12.
