Public Q&A sessions with home!!!
Well not so much for me myself, but for the community in general, I am suggesting an OPEN meeting, scheduled in the near future, WITHIN HOME, Open Discussion, Q&A, Plans and Feedback. One to Two hours in length. Give it a try and if it goes well, schedule more maybe monthly or bi-weekly. I know you guys probably have data for more areas, so why not upload an auditorium (or similar conference area) into the database that is only able to be entered 15 - 30 minutes before and 15 minutes into an event. This will boost interactivity, morale, and not to mention the hopes of the customers. This way you can have the most done without thumbing through a message board.
My ongoing suggestions for this are as followed.
-2 or more DEVs as speakers.
-1 Moderator serving as record keeper.
-1 or 2 Moderators serving as security/police/regulation of the conference.
-Since area space is limited let it be known that it will be first come first serve, or if you have enough manpower, hold it on more than one server.
-Include some higher ups. If you have a director with time on their hands, have them come listen and if they wish, speak their mind and interact with us.
All in all we need the interaction between community and dev team so that not only do we feel acknowledged, but so that we know that we mean enough to the team to help make HOME a better place for everyone.

First, i really like home it feels like a place where you can meet fellow gamers. It will be cool when you can actually launch games but i know its a work in progress.
I have a few suggestions i would like to see make their way into the game:
i run a club, and from what im gathering based on its theme its going to get a big membership kind of fast. (its a club for people from my country, only one of its kind so far)
Anyway, i would love to be able to give some of the members the power to be able to rearrange the furniture. Further even i would REEEEEEAAAAALLLLLLLY LOVE IT if said members could place the furniture that they have already bought via their own accounts. Also it would be very cool if people other than the club owner could buy furniture or even bigger clubhouses for the club. This person could be the club decorator or architect maybe, idk.
If you could find a way in which people could chip in with the clubs owner to buy stuff that would also be cool.
Just so you guys at sony dont think im trying to cut into your revenue stream, think about this for a second. If you have a club that averages 50 people and say 50% of those people, 25, want to hang out at the club and therefore would willing to spend on stuff for it, and ONLY ONE OF THOSE IS ACTUALLY ALLOWED TO DO SO what you are doing is limiting all of the demand you have generated (25 people´s worth) and getting an effective demand of only one people´s worth.
It would also be cool if you could give us a way to communicate with all of the members at once, maybe like a newsletter ran by the club owner or something like that.
Multiple Rooms. dont just bombard us with ADS 24/7. If you put up cool stuff and place ads in them every now and then well be happy and youll make your money.
PLEASE INCORPORATE MACROS, I CANNOT STRESS THIS ENOUGH. At least give us ten, or 20 even. Dont condemn us to doing the same repetitive thing over and over again.
Also, and i think this one is really important. GIVE US A KEY TO SAY AGAIN STUFF WE HAVE JUST SAID. Preferably make it go back to the last 4 or 5 messages. Also INCORPORATE SPAM FILTERS. No one should be allowed to say the same thing over and over and over again and not get muted.
Jumping, Running, and if its at all possible guns. (maybe a cool game of laser tag would be ok)
Amusement Park (with laser tag and roller coaster)
For one Everybody at HOME know i love to throw Home parties. Mainly at my summer home.
1. it only allow a certain amount of ppl in ur home, up to about 12. I have 75 friends on the network. can we raise the limit of in house visitors.
2. is it posible that a jukebox or music rip from the PS3 HDD can be made into their. My guest like to dance.
3. allow us to design our own shirt prints (using the PS eye) or HDD
Bigger Home spaces, please. I want an Home Space with multiple rooms & hallways, not if you stand in one spot you have a view of the whole room. Also, make the game interactive. In the Far Cry 2nd floor thing, there was almost nothing to do, you couldn't interact with anything!
