I Just Had An Idea: Sort Of An "Opposite-Mailsack" *update*

Okay, so every week DeeJ makes these wonderful mailsacks and get's them answered by cool Bungie Employees. We learn interesting stuff, receive funny jokes, and it's an all-around fun time. However, I was thinking, what if [i]they[/i] had questions for [i]us?[/i] Which gave me this idea: DeeJ goes around Bungie telling employees to ask any questions they have of the Community. DeeJ then comes on the Community forum and makes a thread asking some of the questions the employees had. Everyone posts replies to the answers (1 post per Member in the thread to keep it from getting spammy). Then DeeJ chooses an answer for every question (the same member wouldn't be chosen for more than one question) and takes it back to Bungie. Sure, we don't get to see the result, but it's still pretty cool. Also, this could be done like once a month or something. Anyway, tell me what you think.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] ConstantC4RN4GE I literally asked this during an early mailsack. Why not ask me a question? I have never even been acknowledged by Deej. He's lame.[/quote] DeeJ asking you a question is different than Bungie asking the community questions.

  • That's a pretty snazzy idea, Hoob. It would be interesting to see what questions they could come up with, hopefully a mix of serious-ish ones and funny ones. For the record, I think it's been established that most of us like pie.

    I thought the same thing, but I believed it to be silly. Looks like I was wrong.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] x Foman123 x If a Bungie employee wants to know what the community thinks about something, he or she just comes to the forums and posts the question. If they want to set rules for the replies, they do so and community members generally follow it (and moderators occasionally enforce it). It's happened many times before. [/quote]Some people don't ask questions until prompted. It sounds like this is less about "getting information we need from the community" than it is about "interacting with the community". Personally, I think these types of ideas should be encouraged... Not shot down.

  • The only problem I see with this is that if we are answering the questions in a thread, we will have seen the answers by the time its written up. It would be kind of like re posting an edited thread. I guess if there were hundreds of replies your not going to read every post though so it could work.
