# 81 Opinion

Warning lots of words:

STO is a community, and it is as varied as the alien races seen in the game.
Everyone has a different opinion on what is important to them. Our community has multiple sections within it; KDF, Rom, Fed, Foundry, PVP, Fleets...etc etc.. the list goes on. Not only does each player have their own question they want asked and answered, but they have questions they want answered on the section of interest to them as well.

Somewhere mentioned above by stararmy:
Players should be able to submit questions into a queue system where other players can +1 them or -1 them. Any question over a certain threshold MUST be answered, and the top five or ten questions should be answered in high detail. This will allow you to cut through the junk and answer stuff people care most about.

The idea of voting to see what the community wants answered, in my opinion, is fantastic. We saw what it did for the Romulan faction, HOWEVER this addresses the whole of the community and not its sections. It has been mentioned above in multiple posting that each section should have a voice, and that Ask Cryptic should be broken down via section. This is also a fantastic idea. Lets get a list of the separate sections, then each section can select the questions they like through a voting process like stararmy mentioned. The Ask Cryptic would be constructed of the BEST questions from each section.

I may not know a thing about the Foundry, but the Foundry folks Im sure can come up with stuff they want answered. PVP I may dabble in, but the PVP community deserves to be heard. Yeah, I want to know whats going on for KDF, its got my interest...so on an so forth.

On Cryptics end..
Set up stararmy's voting system. Agree upon the sections. Agree upon the set amount of questions for each section. Let the community ask them and then pick the BEST person to answer. If Gekko is the best guy, let him answer, If Dan Stahl has to, then hes the best one. Story plot question, Kestral. Let the expertise of the Cryptic staff shine.

Let the STO communtity and its sections ask the questions they want, and get the answers we all deserve.

Thanks for reading.

I like the idea of a voting system for questions. This will, unfortunately, never happen because the powers that be would have to answer real questions instead of the propaganda we typically receive.

I could be proven wrong, but it's more likely I would win the lottery.

Hi. I have been a member of star trek online now for just over a year and a half, and I have a suggestion. as I traveled the hall of the different ships that i have own main engineering has always stayed the same. whether a large ship like the Odyssey class, or a small one like the nova class. would it be to much if a designer was able to make custom engineering sections to fit size specific ships? giant size for large cruisers, and medium for science ships and mini one for escorts. just a thought.

# 85 Mac Support on the map?

This maybe the wrong place to ask but how are you coming with the mac support for the game you talked about early this year, is it still on the map?

Any communication you do needs to have some accountability. It's not actually the type of communication you do, it's whether your words are worth a damn and quite frankly your track record on that point is abysmal so you got wise to that and just don't commit to anything.

And that is why "Ask Cryptic" completely sucks. It has nothing to do with the format.

You can replace these with Ask a Dev, Engineering Reports, whatever but unless and until you fix that, don't bother. You're just putting a new shade of lipstick on the same old pig.

The problem isn't the ask cryptic part...the problem is we ask cryptic daily in multiple areas of the forums and just sit unanswered for the unforeseeable future..

its not the questions or way of asking questions that need to be revised its cryptic's attitude toward responding to the player base that does.

want an example...go look at the art section of the forums...aside from the random dev trolling that occurs every 90 days there...nothing has been answered or even replied to in any fashion.

its time to stop doing interviews every other day and get back behind the computer, truly go through the forums and reply...EVERYWHERE!
I along with many others I know are tired of talking to a brick wall or having conversations amongst ourselves about an issue.
