TL;DR What’s the closest we can come to having a 2-way conversation with the Event designers and devs to understand their goals for Events, and what’s the most constructive format to share my detailed thoughts (good and bad) over the continued evolution of Event design, to ensure they get seen by the right folks?
Hi CSM!!! This is kind of a meta-question.
I have been thinking for a long time, and compiling observations, about Events over the last year+. (The good, the bad, and the ugly.)
Part of the challenge for me is that it is very difficult (for perfectly legitimate reasons) to have a 2-way real time conversation with the Event devs and designers. I want to be able to see things from their perspective. Their goals for Events, and specifically, things they’re NOT trying to accomplish. I want to understand their challenges, the resources available to them, and then tailor my advice and thoughts.
For example, I could make suggestion X. X could be very helpful, it could be irrelevant, or it could be harmful, depending on specifically what an intended goal is of the designer / dev in how they view Events.
I figure you all are the perfect group of folks to offer advice on this. I would guess that you will probably say, “Write up your stuff here and it’ll get passed along.” Which is fine, except I’m going to probably spout a bunch of stuff that may be inconsistent with the designers’ intentions.
Before I start making longggg posts here, is there any better approach you all would suggest based on experience? Random thought - if I started my own Eve blog on a dedicated domain / site, does that necessarily separate me from the noise / crowd? Or is posting here about the best option?
Thanks for the work you folks do. Any and all suggestions are most welcome.
