**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.

Thanks everyone who has taken part so far! Survey Monkey allows you to make some pretty neat graphs and pie charts. Interesting results so far...

you people sure do love DVDs.

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.

This is a great idea. They family seems interested in our input and one day they will be in charge.

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.

Thank you
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.
Should be a sticky!

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?
