The big difference here is that we're approaching them as a company (e.g. "Hi, this is Ryan, Editor-in-Chief at /ggFTW.com..." etc.) and not a random user, whom they would be less likely to respond to. Is there anything
that you guys want to ask? Worth a shot.
It doesn't have to be about future content, if you guys think that's highly confidential. It can be anything else, really.
You know what, even if they do shoot us down, it could always be for reasons like "not big enough fansite" and what not, and we can simply try again later when we have a stronger ground. On the other hand, if they do decide to respond, they can always disclose whatever information they wish, and any interview is better than no interview (means I was successful).
