You’re making some really good arguments for deleting the thread and I really don’t want to see it removed. I like it, inaccurate as it is.
That’d be an incredibly knee-jerk reaction. And one I’d suspect (though can not confirm) would cause lesser interest. Again, there’s very likely an internal spreadsheet updated when Jason knows if a game has been approved and when it’s coming out – just updating the post at the same time doesn’t take tons of effort. Hell, if you were up for it, emailing you to ask you to update it would take 5 seconds too.
COG isn’t EA or Ubisoft etc a big company but a small group of people who love to make COG for people like us who love to decide what happens in the story.
This is true, but there are plenty of companies who are more transparent who aren’t EA. COG are trying to hire someone, so I’ll be guessing they’re a business that is at least sustainable. In that case, I don’t feel I’m asking tons. And I’ll continue to throw money at every title.
I very much like the Upcoming Releases thread, as well…as stated at the top of that thread, it’s not meant to be a spot-on list of release dates, just general estimates.
Again, I realise this, but if we’re talking about something meant to be releasing that day… or a date that’s in the past, a little message to let people know wouldn’t be too hard.
Um, that was not hostile. Do you think a hostile person would just do what you asked even if it may get them in trouble? No, probably not. However, a person feeling harassed would just to get said people to stop. Yes, continuously asking for something can be a form of harassment.
Erm. Wat. So that wasn’t hostile, but me asking for a company to be more transparent is harassment.
That CoG even bothers with it, makes it feel like they value their customers. Also, please remember that behind CoG, they are people just like their consumers. They do what they can, when they can. It is a small company, created by people like us, who have family and friends. It isn’t some large corporation with employees working 24/7 to be worried about an unofficial release date thread on the forum.
I currently run two companies that take a LOT of my time. I understand this. But I try to be as transparent as possible to our customers.
I’m not asking for anything huge. I asked for a simple edit of one or two words. That’s all.
It is one thing to ask or make a request, but seemingly demanding they do something continuously from a small company you were already informed was overworked, just looks like plain trolling/harassment to me,
Erm. o.O; I am going to assume you’re trolling me now? I never demanded anything. I asked, I opened up a discussion. If I am not free to open up a discussion of how I feel about the processes, very calmly, then there’s something seriously wrong.
