immortal1 - I don’t think it’s fair to say that we only recognize “EQAL” characters. We often reference community members in the videos by username. A username is essentially the equivalent to a character created by a member of the community. We don’t want to stifle creativity and we want to encourage the community created videos - both real and fictional. It is complicated to more fully integrate community created characters and storylines as we must pre-shoot a lot of the videos so that we can organize schedules with cast/crew. We also don’t want to be looked as playing favorites to some community members over others. I’d like to keep this dialogue about this topic going so we can find ways to do even more interaction as we progress with all of our shows. We should talk about further in our live chat.
