it's rather frustrating being blithely told 'they're friendly' as if taking the precaution is an insult to them and their pet. i have no problem with people letting their dogs off for a run - do it often myself - but when you see someone approaching with theirs on a lead/ your own dog approaching them, at least make an effort to gain control of your pet. don't just assume every dog is as sociable as your own or that its behaviour towards you is completely indicative of its potential reaction to unfamiliar people/animals.
We're keen as a dev team to do as thorough an AMA as possible, as we know that dev briefs either tend to focus on broad scale stuff (content etc) or on minutia, but often that the questions long-term players have are different to questions from brand new players. We felt that this format would be a great way of allowing me to engage across as many questions as possible from a large range of different types of players.
I've got a couple of guidelines below that I'd love us to keep to in order to make sure you can find the answer you're looking for and keep the AMA moving.
The AMA will start at 2pm GMT and end 24 hours later. This will be a window in which I'll be spending all working time answering questions.
Lastly, thanks for the support - whether you're a new, long-time or returning player.
