But: - crowdfunding! There are loads of requests for x and y - eg better customer service; account transfers; better GM policing of rulebreakers and much much more We are often told, or folk say, that there is no budget for whatever x & y is this week/year So how about DBG take a bunch of those requests and ask people to put their money where their mouth is? If, for eg, to be economically viable to get account transfer up and running it would need 500 people/accounts to pledge $100, then they put up a call for those pledges. If they don't get them then we all know that, actually, there really isn't the demand for that, however loudly some folk shout. On the other hand, it guarantees an income stream to 'get stuff done' that the playerbase actually wants. Could it work?
