    Good Idea, but that would then add to the liability to the site owners and I'm pretty sure they don't want to take that responsibility.

    Disneygeekbrazil, Don't worry about this thread. Its been at least two years since I've seen a thread relating to the same subject. It's nice to have a good refresher. :thumbup:

    There is no apology necessary: your thread is not an inconvenience, nor is it useless. As I said in my post, the previous threads were cited "by way of background" -- they are meant to contribute additional information to the discussion, and are not a criticism of your thread.

    Disney does, however, regularly read (and regularly shill) this site and other social media sites for PR and other purposes.

    By way of background, discussion on this topic goes back to the early months of MiceChat, in threads including:

    I would like thank all of you here for the comments and answers. You are very friendly and nice people.

    I know I am goona look like dumb, but I do not know how to make multiple quotes. So, I am gonna make my comments.

    I am on my studies break this week and I am not so busy in the last couple of days. That said, I decided to think on ideas do make DLR better and improved. I am gonna share my idea, mainly because I think Disney will never use a similar one. Also, I would like to know what you think of what I created. Everything is still very shallow, I only have an overrall idea.

    As soon as possible, I am gonna create a thread. I hope you enjoy.

    Hugs and thank you so much for your attention.

    I totally agree.

    You are pretty much right about that. As I understand it, they have certain special procedures to handle unsolicited ideas that are sent in to them so that someone cannot later say their idea was "stolen" and demand payment. I'm not sure how they handle stuff that is posted on the Internet. A few years ago, prior to Disneyland's 50th anniversary celebration, Disneyland did solicite 50th celebration ideas from a Disney fan group that I belong to and I participated. You basically have to sign away all rights to your ideas to Disney for forever and and then some when you do that!

    Well, it is a way to kill an idea, but I see how it would be okay to move forward if you have the idea notarized prior to the person posting their idea. I remember people mentioning the idea of a Buoy for FNSV and they created it anyway. If they can easily prove that they came up with the idea first, then they can move forward with it.

    Of course, Imagineers probably wouldn't pitch/promote ideas online to gauge guest reactions and drum up support for certain projects.

    As for the actual question at hand, I bet they look here for some feedback, but like other posters have said, they take it with a grain of salt. They also can't use the ideas posted here, for legal reasons.
    Why would Imagineers look here for feedback? Here's why they wouldn't:

    1. Miceage isn't representative, what the hardcore fans want is different from what the general public wants.
    2. There are too many malcontents here which enjoy shooting down a project for the fun of it.
    3. They might own the ideas, if working on the clock for Mickey, but how would they prove that if they are using a screename?
    4. A lot of the Blue Sky process is insular and inspired by things other than internet chat boards.
    5. Disney does plenty of surveys in the park, they did a lot of surveys of DCA after it opened.

    Well, I always read MiceChat forum and I really like it. Also, I always see people giving great ideas and suggestions here. I was wondering if WDI even read or take our ideas in consideration. Some ideas are very very good indeed.
