We often hear the rationale that are not enough resources to provide customer service and even fix basic things in EverQuest that could help greatly improve the play experience for thousands of EQ players. I thought of an idea: How about we start a GoFundMe page for over-worked and under paid DarkPaw developers? Southern California has some of the highest cost of living prices in the USA. I'm sure some of the EQ developers could use some extra money during these hard economic times. We could send a poll to all EQ devs and see which ones would like to participate in this GoFundMe project as recipients. Those that express interest would benefit based on how many hours they work in their own time to fix bugs, add quality of life improvements, and so on. Those who send funds in would be able to vote on the dev tasks. Each month we would selected tasks for the devs based on direction from players who contribute to the fund. We would establish a council of interested people to chair the player committee. At the end of each month, each EQ dev could submit a timesheet of hours worked and the task they completed and the GoFundMe funds would be dispersed according to hours worked. Of course this would only apply to the tasks that devs do on their own time. This may seem like a troll post but I am very serious. It's a win-win situation. We get a chance to show our love and appreciation for our struggling developers and in return we get fixes and enhancements for the MMO that we love and EQ devs get a chance to earn some extra money and feel good that they are helping players. Thanks for listening.
