QOTD: Do You Want Questions From Readers?

A few days ago we asked you if you wanted reader submitted content and the response we got was pretty overwhelming. Positive and negative comments aside, it gave us a lot of food for thought. Whether it was deciding if said content should be edited prior to posting, or figuring out what kind of standard to set (such as having a certain amount of posts or threads to your name) when it came to deciding who gets to play in the submit articles section/forum/thread/whatever, there was tons to think about and trust me, we've been mulling over the comments ever since.

We would love to see interesting stuff that comes directly from the readers (we know you have some deadly ideas) and the idea of supplementing our own content with contributions from external-but-internal sources really appeals to us. That said, there's so much to consider and making an idea like that come to life isn't something we could do without a lot of planning. We'd have to have a whole bunch of meetings, not to mention develop a whole new section on the site to accommodate it. Basically, it would take f-o-r-e-v-e-r and we're eager to let you have your say now.

So, here's my guest-QOTD: Do you want reader submitted QOTDs?

Post your comments below and we'll let you know what we decide.

    Why not have reader submitted QOTDs?

    There, post that one! Nah, but seriously, I can't imagine Tuan can think of questions forever, but at the same time, if someone in the community has a truly insiteful and politically rousing question, it might be interesting to see the opinions of others.

    On the other hand, we don't want 365 days of "What do you think of my build (posting newegg order TONIGHT!)?"

    Sounds like a lot of extra work for you guys . . .

    But yes, I'm totally in favor of the idea. Hats off to you all for your creativity and production, but there's a ton of untapped potential within the readers who browse here every day. I say help them get involved with the site as much as possible, and everyone will be better off for it.

    No. I want the crew at Toms. IE Jane, to conjur up their own ideas independent of the desires of her audience.
