In this episode, Adam pulls up some old and new voices to the table to discuss community issues with MMO's.  Brenden from AnotherHere.com, Michael Zenke from MMOGNation and Massively.com, Ritchie Zapatero from E:ON Magazine, and Last but not least, "I'm Alan?" 'Brenlo' Crosby, head of Sony Community Relations, and one of the talented voices of the Station Podcast.  On the docket this week: "MMO Forums; Useful, Useless, or Working as Intended?" and Brenlo tells us the sad sad tale of CSM's/GM's and why they hate us players.  But, Adam gives a wonderful recipe for how to cook tender ribs!  Enjoy!

'Thanks Alan!' by Akely

Thanks for confirming what I've been saying a long time regarding the forums: Thay is them (to some extent) being there to give the appearance that SOE is listening. And I don't mean to be snarky, I just adore it when people are open and honest.

To some extent Brenden is correct when he points out that "the customer is always right" is well... just WRONG. Fact is that some customers will NEVER be satisfied, even if you dropped their pants and gave them... I'll stop here.

I had a few encounters with GM’s one some for account/guild issues and one for stuffing to many lightsaber crystals in my lightsaber at SWG (shame on me :-/) hehe

I always treat GM’s with respect because they are there to help you

Great episode and keep up the great work

I was a GM in a major MMO and man did it suck.

Irony being what it is. I later went back to the game and needed help. The GM I got was the biggest dick.
