Open Post: Autumn 2011
Ronnie Barker as Albert Arkwright in "Open All Hours"
It’s time for another in the series of open posts.
So what can you comment about on this post?
Everything covered on BBC Internet blog and more – anything you want to discuss or ask about the online activities of the domestic, public service BBC. And some issues are still being discussed, the iPlayer for PS3, BBC Homepage and the DSat7 migration, so while you can talk about these I’d prefer you to talk about them on posts which are still open.
Constructive relevant comments are welcome. Sometimes Open Posts succeed in finding problems and raising them with the right people – for example the correct channeling of complaints regarding blogs. Open Posts are a chance to me to hear what you'd like more or less of on the internet blog. But this isn't a messageboard - a place for freeranging discussion about absolutely everything the BBC does (for that, try the Points of View message boards).
The complaints site, moderation appeals process, and iPlayer help site are useful if you have a complaint, a blocked post you want reversed, or a problem with iPlayer. If you've tried those routes and there's a problem with the routes (rather than the response you got) then please say.
I can't actually descend from my airship, kidnap BBC executives, and force them to blog or comment. I do commit to try to answer your questions. If lots of you ask, I can let folk inside the BBC know that the audience are clamouring for them to blog and comment. It is unlikely that I'll be able to pre-announce something, or to release statistics on request, but it is good to know the demand.
There are a couple of things you could do to help me:
- If you are want to cite a BBC statement or commitment, please say what you're referring to, with a link if possible. This saves time, and can resolve things if there's been a misunderstanding.
- Finally, it will help me if you try to keep separate topics in separate comments. If I can say to an someone within the BBC "Comments #3 and #92" are for you, that makes it easier to get an answer than if I have to split up an edit comments.
Thanks, and I look forward to hearing what you have to say.
