Mr. West should present a petition from us asking Disney to not try to go that 'programs in the real world' approach which is anathemic to the concept. I do understand that Kat and a few of you have written fan fiction based on that premise and that's cool.
Actually, I haven't... unless I'm completely forgetting something. I think it would be a difficult concept; I have trouble with how Q's gonna cope. I'm not sure anyone else here has either, except for Trace.
But hell, I've thought for a long time that we're a resource Disney should milk, both as far as ideas and using forum members as extras in the films. Unfortunately, there are two possibilities:
1. They totally get rich off of our ideas with no credit*
2. They don't use our ideas-- many of which are excellent, if I may say so without being accused of bias-- for fear of a lawsuit. And possibly use crappy ideas instead.
Hopefully there's a middle ground. (LOL, we should have a single sticky thread to make it easy: "Dear Disney..." and everybody can make a post with their own ideas. No discussion or argument to make it hard to read, just everybody who wants to makes a post.)
*and lest you think "but I'd just be thrilled if they used my idea and I wouldn't need credit or payment!" then consider the "disclaimer hoops" fanfic writers always jump through lest some Power That Be decides a lawsuit or a cease-and-desist is in order, or imagine if you wanted to sell your fanfic and how hard they'd come down on you for making money off THEIR idea. I'd be thrilled if they used my ideas too-- naturally I think them quite superior, lol-- but I'd certainly hope the fans would get a shoutout.
