a proper list with people that actually respond and come post when they're being asked.
many people on that list are inactive and a vast majority of those that are active don't bother to come in the foundry and post.
i think what Nola_Lifer is really asking for is a "Feedback Committee" or something.

You could start a new Feedback Committee, but I am quite sure it would fill up with people who would claim to be interested and then would lose interest, just as the Map Surveyors did. Perhaps inactive members of the Map Surveyors group should be sent a message, gently reminding them of their voluntary duties, and those who do not get off the stick should be culled. Then, a call for new members of the group might draw in fresh eyes and young blood (sorry if the metaphor is a bit gory).

I feel like a lot of Map Surveyors signed on for the updates/information, and don't view it so much as a call to comment.

Well, as near as I remember, every PM I received through the Map Surveyors mailing list asked me to come and comment.

Right. I still think most signed up just for the info, or for kicks and giggles, even. I don't think many see Map Surveyors as a commitment.

You're right, we didn't use that "option" for a while. I don't know exactly why....

And Map surveyors is a free option, I can't force people to go here and comment on a map. If they want, they can do it, if not I won't blame them for that.
