She was on a break from WoW at the time. I hear she's really interested in Huxley right now.

She's in STO too.

You can find her on Risa, standing at the shore looking out to sea. I think she's watching Russia....

The one-sentence description makes it sound a lot better designed, implemented, and publicized than it ever was.

And that's generalizing the opposition a bit. Some thought it would be used to excessively privelige the views of a small number of people, that it involved inherent conflicts of interest, that Cryptic was really only interested in mouthpieces for them rather than the other way around, etc. And then there were objections to the initial membership, and so on.

Well, yeah... haven't we all seen that Beacon of light to the Romulan Empire?

My understanding is that folks invited to the Council may be getting repurposed into a viral marketing "Press Corps" type thing (ie. receiving press releases and fast tracked for conference call interviews or something but with the feedback portion dropped) and that, if we get a Council, it will take another form.

I suspect that the big thing we'll see the former Council members get is fast tracked interviews, exclusive press releases and permission to run contests in conjunction with Atari, more like the Wowhead/Blizzard relationship and less as a Council (which is a bit misleading since Cryptic didn't intend for their Council to be a governing body, just a feedback/market research tool; they do want to tap people who have built Trek web communities but I gather the "Council" term was probably a bad idea and the feedback collecting part was something these folks were ill-equipped for and the community here rejected).
