Part of the pushback was from people seeing (and the marketeers semi-admitting) that this was the idea in the first place. Basically priveliging certain people and venues with more community 'prestige' and input in exchange for being shills, bringing up issues of conflict of interest and justifiable jealousy.

Well, being a "shill" makes sense if you're a site like STOked or STOWiki. Your site has no reason to exist without the game. Collecting feedback is the awkward part as these types of sites EXIST because the people creating them WANT TO shill information. But they have no real tools for collecting it nor do they necessarily have skills or training in collecting it.

Right. Hence the perceived unsuitability and conflict of interest. I don't think anyone would have batted an eye if they'd announced it as a fansite/publicity program instead of a feedback-gathering program.

Because its 'uncool' to not be negative about everything.

I personally agree with you. People need to let up on the whining for a bit and enjoy what they have. Sure the game isnt exactly what anyone wants but then I dont think any game is otherwise theyd be playing it right now and would be content playing that 1 game for the rest of their lives.

It didn't help much when some of STOked's forum chums came on here and went on about how uber they were and would get us banend if we didn't like what they did.
