How feedback works and why it matters

Community Manager
While you're 'round these parts, I want to draw your attention to a well-written, insightful article by Matt Rossi over at WoW Insider. It's a great point of reference when you consider some of the statements we, as Blizzard employees, tend to consistently reiterate.

From reading the thread with over 220 pages now, I must say I am happy to see forum posts are actually being seriously reviewed upon...... no matter how ridiculous at times. I want to personally thank you, Zarhym, for responding to us needy children of yours! =)

Thank you.

I'm sure most of us are aware of how important feedback is, even some who pretend otherwise.

It's just easy for us to get frustrated when the things important to us personally seem to get overlooked in the mass of feedback others are making about things mportant to them. And even with a desire to improve things to make a greater number of players happy, changes aren't always that simple or quick to implement.

I would like to hear about what is going to be done with CRZ. I dislike it because of rare boms and pets--there are SO MANY PEOPLE going for the same thing, and mob respawn rates have not been upped.

When you are on a PvP server this makes for a delightful PvP situation, but it is horribly annoying when I clear the mobs around a pet I want to battle only to have a fellow member of the same faction swoop in and take it--especially if it is popular. This happened last night when I was trying to get a fel flame.

Also, with my main a hunter, it is disheartening to see five or six people hovering over a Skoll spawn point. It was difficult enough to get with just people from my own realm vying for it. Now it is well neigh impossible.

Well, I read it expecting to find your definition of the word "Soon", but couldn't find it anywhere. I think we may have different meaning of that word. : )

So it's NOT self-evident that World of Warcraft needs hippos? How is it possible everyone else does not think this very same thing every time they log in???

Editing because I have more to say!

Feedback is important, both positive and negative. The way you construct your post, be it in a constructive way, or with yelling, is going to determine the response you get. I see a lot of really good posts on here that are not flame bait and are well thought out, but too many are basically either parroting what has been said in literally hundreds of other threads, or is down right volatile.

Constructive discourse is the best discourse! :)

"What they didn't do -- what they have never done and cannot ever do -- is simply go to the forums, see who yelled loudest, and give them everything they wanted."

The problem is, you guys don't use the feed back, or deny it!!! Everyone has been screaming since MoP dropped "DAILIES SUCK!!!!" and blizz just simply says "then don't do them..." Which is clearly not what there intention was. I felt like they were mandatory intill I noticed I was revered with all most all of them then I thought to myself, that was the worst thing I have ever done in the history of wow!!!!!
