It's that time again to get the pulse of the community. As I did with my Vehicles article in the launch issue of the EntropiaTimes magazine, I now want to solicit feedback from the community regarding the tiering system. There are certainly comments all over the forums in different threads, but I would like to get a collective offering in this thread with contributors responding to the following questions. As with the vehicles article, your comments, and/or any photos offered to identify specifics (which would be nice to have if available) may be used in the tiering article (with full credit) which will be published in the December issue of the EntropiaTimes magazine. Taking time to participate in this feedback is appreciated. Side Note ... this thread will also appear at the Planet Calypso Forum, so please do not respond at both places - thank you! THIS THREAD WILL REMAIN OPEN FOR CONTRIBUTIONS UNTIL 23:59 GAME TIME - WED - NOV 3RD Copy and paste (do not quote) the following questions into a new post and respond after each question. (read each question through first for specifics so that you are not duplicating information) ======================================== 1 - What were your initial thoughts when the tiering system was first introduced? 2 - What would you consider to be the POSITIVE side of tiering? 3 - What would you consider to be the NEGATIVE side of tiering? 4 - Is there anything you would do different to make the tiering system more efficient? 5 - Have you had an item tiered? - If so, what item(s), and what were your experiences/benefits? 6 - Do you provide a tiering service? - If so, how is it working for you, and what is your rate of success? 7 - Overall, how would you rate the tiering system on a scale of 1-10, and why? 8 - Do you give permission to use your comments in a magazine article? 9 - Do you give permission to use any photos submitted in a magazine article? ======================================== Thank you in advance to those who take the time to participate in this feedback effort.
