In my Welcome to Polygon post, I mentioned that GEICO – the car insurance company that makes all the funny commercials – would be sponsoring our forums. You've undoubtedly seen their ads on the site over the past few days, but it was important to GEICO to do more than just run advertising; they wanted to be part of the community.
Considering it's an open forum and anyone can create an account here, it was an easy ask. Lucky for GEICO, their social media slash community guy is an actual gamer who was already excited about Polygon. You'll recognize his handiwork if you remember this bit of wwebsite-related Reddit success late last year. He is not, it should be noted, the little British gecko, whose hands are far too small to manipulate traditional video game controllers.
It's thanks to the support of companies like GEICO that believe in what we're doing and want to support the nascent community here, that Polygon is able to exist. We can use this thread if you want to ask Andrew anything about his job, what games he's playing, or why a car insurance company cares about a video game community.
Of course, keep in mind that just because Andrew's our guest, it doesn't mean you can't disagree with him. If he tries to convince you that Majora's Mask is the best Zelda game, you feel free to tell him where to get off. (It's Link to the Past, by the way, obviously).
Andrew will be posting under the handle 'Andrew @ GEICO,' so say hi if you see him around.
