Player becomes Blizzard President for a week

General Discussion
I get the feeling sometimes that the people who create the game don't actually play, because if they did, don't you think a lot of things would change for the better?

Imo Blizzard should allow a player, voted in by his peers, the opportunity to make a days worth of decisions to he improve the game from a players perspective, in place of what you business type folks make for us everyday.

Would be a great pub stunt and in the same breath, a few key issues might be resolved that current high ranking CE's at Blizz currently overlook.

Participants would be able to post a small petition and voting could take place on the forums.

Thought?

Switfy for Blizz Pres 2012!!
No. We'd just elect the person who promised us the most free stuff, every time.
There's not a single one of you people I would trust to sweep the floor in the server room, much less run the game.
Yeah.......... no. no. no

This would be a horrible thing.
That would do what every other MMORPG out there tried, but couldn't, do.

...you could trust me!

I wouldn't change a thing.

Well, okay, I would. I'd give us nelves Ysera's model. And make Dark Rangers a playable class. But that's not a lot!

^This, unfortunately.

Also, I believe some of the devs, and definitely the mods do in fact play the game.

Should also be noted that a lot of things have changed for the better, they just haven't changed to suit your personal opinion.
So you're saying even some of the best players in the game aren't informed enough to change a few things for the better or might, at the very least, bring a new fresh prospective into the office?

Maybe bring light to a few issues that have been unaddressed on the forums?
I'm reminded of a line from the Discworld novels, where Lord Vetinari (the tyrant ruler of Ankh-Morpork) points out that a nearby town implemented democracy, just to have everyone vote to no longer pay taxes.

That's not entirely true, but thank you for attempting to s peak on my behalf.
I would decide to swap all of the coffee in the blizzard buildings to decaf.

Best <> Most Popular, that's the problem here. People would politic it, look at the forums for what people are whining about the most, and offer to change it if they were voted for.

Some things are unpopular, but are the way they are by design. Changing them just because the majority want it changed is not always the best thing to do.

Issues on the forums are best left unaddressed. The ideas that float through here (YOURS IS A GOOD EXAMPLE) are so stupid they cause cancer.
