Private ps+ forum section

Hey guys,

 

Do you think it would be a good idea to have the Playstation plus board accessible to only ps+ users?

Hmm, to be honest I'm not sure ES, off the top of my head the only good thing that comes to mind is the fact that it wouldn't be full of people "bashing" the service like one or two do constantly now, that really gets to me, they don't pay for the service but bash it anyway, so yea, for that reason alone it could be worth it.

 

Did you have other reasons for asking or for wanting it yourself or was it just a general question?

I just wanted to see other peoples views about it.

I mean i would be cool for us to get our own private forum to discuss about and improve the service.

This, I think, would be a terrible move. First off, what if some random soul comes in wanting questions about Plus? Where are they supposed to go? Do they have to travel off-site now to another forum because they aren't with Plus? Should they pay $18 or higher just to ask their query about whether Plus would make a good deal for them, or something other than that?

 

The PlayStation Plus forum should stay general and open, an option if you will - just the way Plus is now. Robot Happy

I vote against that. The forums are quite fragmented as it is, with some sections receiving tons of attention while others stay unvisited.

I believe this would be a great idea. Us ps+ members could talk about up coming of things and talk about improving ps+

It would be pretty neat.

 

There would be A general playstation plus section for information regarding the service and if anybody is curious what the service offers they can open up a thread and ask. Having a seperate private forum for subscribers to talk about ps+ and voice their opinions would be very beneficial to the service.

I don't have strong feelings either way but there has been at least one thread created for that purpose, and unfortunately the lack of communication from Sony makes me think that it wouldn't make any difference.  I'm with BRIT-KO in thinking that it would be nice to avoid the complaint posts, but I don't think there'd be much benefit and they've been less frequent.

 

I also agree with Doppelgangergang that "The forums are quite fragmented as it is."  Somewhat related to that, I never understood why there are these two forums:


PSN General Discussion

and

Playstation Network General

 

I used to only check one of them (don't remember which).  What's the difference between those?  I was thinking about creating a topic about it; I honestly don't understand the difference and why they aren't merged to help organize the forums and reduce repeated topics.

im in 100% agreement with Gray-- I have many "friends" in this forum--but there not the reason i stop by here to chat Smiley Surprised (new smileys still sucking) i come here to help answer peoples questions about plus. to do my part to help the community- if it was just members--- this section would really be boreing---and as for the whiners--- need to take them with a grain of salt--bath salts actually and some chives- roast up for a few hours and DING!!!!!! DINNER!!!!!!
