Should the community have elected spokespersons?

One of the things i've always admired about EVE online, was CCPs desicion to go above and beyond forums and arrange a [url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/EVE_Online#Council_of_Stellar_Management]community elected council[/url] as a route for players to make requests for changes and improvements to the game mechanics, presentation, and game content of Eve Online. With all the rumours flying around about destiny being a FPSMMO or Open World Sandbox game, do you think our community could benefit from a similar arrangement?

  • Looks like this thread has been hijacked to talk about one particular group. Humorous, but I think it's too far gone off-topic to relate any longer to the subject matter of the OP. [Edited on 10.12.2012 10:16 AM PDT]

  • Take it easy Ken, you aren't going to become the Community president by posting a lot in this thread.

  • I nominate myself for community president. I offer cookies to the masses, a clean election, an end to world hunger, and I'm so MLG. AWYEAH.

  • As already pointed out, this was tried a couple of time before. It sounds like a fun idea, but really somewhat pointless.

  • This will eventually evolve into Bungie politics. I think the way we have it now, with the employees posting and us commenting in their thread is fine how it is. Having a council or a republic isn't needed for b.net.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] ARBITOR 5 [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Frapican I don't think that we really need this. In my opinion, having the forums is good enough for feedback. [/quote]Eh, I don't think so. Most things just get shot down. Remember that huge list of things that we would like to see added? None of it has been yet, maybe in the new hawtness eventually. But just take a look at the Avatar thread in the gallery, how many avatars where posted? Loads. How many we're actually added on bungie day? About 2 - 3. If that! I know that the studio is busy but what is the community team actually doing? All I see is DeeJ posting every few days and the odd bungie employee. Sorry if I sound as though I have lost faith - I haven't but the forums are not a great place to actually discuss new features. Not very often does an employee say 'hey that's a good idea but..' or 'we might try to add that in the future sometime'. Bungie.net is very hollow, empty and dark ATM. These are just MY views.[/quote] I'm sure that Bungie does notice our feedback in the forums. Just because some things haven't been implemented or commented on by a Bungie Employee, doesn't mean that they haven't been considered or noticed.

  • I don't think so. Bungie [i]makes games that they want to play[/i]. Yes, they care about the community and are excellent at interacting with their community, but it is not up to [i]us[/i] to decide what they do. They'll do what they want, and nobody here should feel like they should have a say or in turn feel hard done by if Bungie does something that they dislike. This is not government. It's an online gaming community of fans passionate for what our Blue masters give us. We take it with open arms and either like it or don't, but in the end, none of it is up to us and it shouldn't be. That's my opinion on it, anyway. I just think that too many people feel entitled to some sort of say in, well... [i]everything.[/i] Cheers

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] SilverBulitt82 [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] defnop552 We should have DeeJ pick a bunch of members, then have a poll to decide who the head member should be.[/quote] Agreed![/quote]Seconded. This plan is flawless.
