PSXE Asks: What Do You Want?
By now, we've come to know hundreds of excellent, loyal readers who have turned our Comments section into something really special. And because we know how much you value that interaction with us and your fellow members, we want to give you new ways of enhancing that interaction.
You guys always seem to respond to things like this; when we handed out MAG beta codes and only asked you to upload a wallpaper or two, we received around 750 submissions in the span of 48 hours. This is just one example of your dedication and creativity (some of those wallpapers were personally made), and other examples have been when big articles get hundreds of comments in a matter of hours. It seems as if you're begging for another way of expressing yourselves while at the same time, hanging out with all the friends you've made here. Well, we just started thinking about this...you know how GameSpot has those user blogs where you can put up all sorts of stuff? We're considering something like that; you know, where you guys can post up everything from user reviews to personal experiences with your gaming and entertainment. Maybe you even want to review the latest movie or Blu-Ray release. Maybe the latest CD. Maybe your new car. Maybe you just want to rant about something that totally ticked you off, and you need to vent to a sympathetic crowd. Maybe you want to share your latest wallpaper or theme creation with everyone and get feedback. The best part? What you do will actually become part of the site, viewable by all.
Basically, not only do we want you to have more ways to interact with one another, but we also want to give you plenty of options to create user-generated content that's all your own. Maybe you disagreed with one of our reviews or maybe we didn't get to a review, and you want to step in and provide readers with your own views. All you'd have to do is log in and utilize certain aspects of what we anticipate being an expanded UserCP. But before we start this up, we're asking you flat out: what would you like to see and do? When you log into PSXE in the future, what do you want to do besides read and comment? I was going to do a poll, but this type of thing needs actual verbal (or typed, whatever) feedback. Let us know and we'll get to work. :)
