**RESULTS ARE IN** [Estate Survey]

UPDATE: 29 AUG:

Results here: http://bit.ly/2wOSl0o

Please wait for a few seconds and select 'Slow Download free

.

I have set up a survey for org members to give their feedback to help the estate. The questions are designed to show what is important to the fans in terms of what content and formats are preferred, and how future releases from the estate are dealt with.

.

I would also like to say a big thank you to June7 for without their forward thinking to interview and put forward the org's questions to Sharon, we wouldn't be thinking that our opinions as fans would be listened to quite so closely.

It was pretty interesting to see the results so far. Personally, I'm all for downloadable content. I was also pretty surprised at how many people love those crusty old DVDs with the format's limited capabilities. I suppose, though, most Prince video material isn't going to be of particularly great quality.

As a collector and an old fogey I like tangable items in my hands. I want CD's (or records) that I can rip into my computer. That way I have the tangable item for my collection and a digitalized version for my listening pleasure. I don't care either way about video as I'm not really interested in the video stuff.

Way much better and cleverer than the very restrictive frontpage poll where choices are limited (and honestly do not correspond to most of our requests) and where you can only pick up one choice.

Thank you for taking the time to set this up - and I have completed. I will be see upset if black is the new black or most recently finished material isn't the next thing out. Just has to be. The rest can wait. The most recent is as close as we will get to having him back and that music being contemporaneous. And the days keep passing.

[I think it's a wonderful survey and I'm happy to sticky it and submit it to Sharon and those who will be making decisions regarding Prince's future releases.

What I take issue with is that for some reason we, as Org members, or fans or whatever, feel that we can not promote one thing without tearing down another.

The survey on the home page was prepared by me, after many requests to do so. I completed it and kept adding to it as things kept coming up. I never said it was the most complete survey but it was someething in lieu of nothing, and if I hadn't put it up y'all would have bitched at us for not doing anything.

So, why must we always be negative? Truth is, we should be thrilled that Sharon has even asked us to submit anything at all - and that was a direct result of the interview we were lucky to get!

Like I said, I am thrilled to include this, or actually replace the one I created and utilize this one instead, as I truly appreciate the labor that went into it, which was a lot more than I was willing to do. But, as with the interview, and many other things that happen around here (or when we - as in Orgers or Moderators, etc - do anything that has to do with Prince or our knowledge of Prince, or whatever), why must the initial response or involvement, or critique or etc., etc., be negative?

I think it's time we start attempting to be a little more civil towards eachother and less sanctimonious or bitchy or negative with each other in all aspects of this site ... it's always been something that really has bummed me out about the Org in general. I mean, we have Prince's sister here answering questions, and I've deleted snide remarks and rude posts and insensitive crap - and I think to myself - why is she even bothering?

I hope this doesn't come off as whiny, or bitchy or anything other than an attempt at becoming a little more civil to each other in general. It's something I'd love to see happen here.

Anyway - thanks for listening - and thank you tbokris for doing what you did, I truly appreciate your efforts and the time you took in doing this.

Thanks June7! Let's build on the positivity you have started by interviewing Sharon and getting us to here. You have done a tremendous job with the interview and I am thankful. And thanks for making this post sticky!

I will post up the results in say a week or so? maybe 2 weeks? 227 completed it so far!

Thanks to everyone who has taken the time to fill it in.

I've mentioned the negativity that permeates this board numerous times (and been negatively replied to as a result). There's been threads created where the first negative response appears within three posts, sometimes even the initial post is negative. Why does it have to be this way here? Prince was all about 'live 4 love' but apparently that doesn't trickle down to alot of members here. They'd rather spend 5 minutes typing up a negative response to someone's post rather than take three seconds to answer the query or just 'let it go'. Why?

Great poll.

What I personally think is sorely missing, is a good official website, with soundbites, video, biography ... kind of like an online museum that will be there for all eternity ...

Reply #40 posted 08/24/17 12:20am

So the only thing all agree on is having a say in what is released, even though the general thoughts on what is released is spread fairly evenly over most of the options given

even though I answered yes to the last Q, maybe it will be a case of too many cooks spoiling the broth!

tbokris: Thanks for this survey 🌷

June7 - Thanks for your heartfelt expressions 🌷 regarding negativity, here on The Org. Beloved you (we) know there is one reason that unites this "Purple Community". Prince. Everyone has opinions, right or wrong. We're all types of humanity @ The Org & what not: I liked Mr. Nelson's hands. So. What.

I am grateful for every prince . org Moderator 🌷 for their contributions and keeping a semblance of order here.

Grateful to Ms. Tyka Nelson 🌷 and Ms Sharon Nelson 🌷 for remembering your brothers fans.

To Orgers - What we have here is not just an online forum. The Org was one of the few websites that was not shut down. Oh yeah, our photo forum was. biggrin Point is Do you know how many other websites evolved as The Org has into an online Community where Members have hung out IRL and maintained those relationships, to date? Some Members even married. How about at a Prince concert - Did you notice the difference of those in attendance? Prince was amazing. And we die hard fans are right there too, amazingly. Let's keep some civility for one another. I'm not saying "Don't express yourself." I am saying "Put on your grown up undies (or grab yo booty!, if ya go commando) When & If an Orger calls you out. grandpa

PS: CDs DVDs (I own LPs & my Mom's LP's as well) The art of the product is as important to me as the music and visual interpretation of a song released as a video. Above these I like touching products (judge away boxed ) I pay for. And now back them mugs in my laptop & via downloads....giggle

[I have submitted the results of the survey conducted by Org member, tbokris, the suggestion by Org member Moonbeam and the front page poll created by me. I'll let them figure out the importance of the data submitted, but I must say - what we've done here should be considered very valuable to both The Estate and Warner Bros.! Usually they have to pay for such detailed marketing research from fans like Prince's. Since this portion of her request has been fulfilled, I'm locking this thread.
