Personally, I don’t really think it’s necessary.
Never really been a fan or interested in Q&A, but I do believe the best way to get more people interested in Eve is to do it via Reddit, or at the very least promote it in relevant subs. (I’m also not active on Reddit, so if I’m wrong, sorry).
The most important part of the Q&A is the reach, after that is the possible effect/commitment. I believe that a livestream Q&A would give viewers/readers a more emotional connection towards the brand and the team, thus improving the effect.
But again, this is an outside-in view. I don’t really care about Q&A or commercial/promotional interviews. They tend to have
- irrelevant personal information that has barely to no impact to the content of the subject
- stupid questions
- A lack of questions that a worth answering
- No new information anyway.
I’m not saying any Q&A has all of the above, as I don’t participate/look for them. I honestly don’t see the appeal of it. And honestly, I have absolutely no clue what I would ask Eve at this point, besides the obvious : What’s the next big project? And I somehow doubt that will be revealed in a Q&A.
And even if it were to be revealed, a mere minutes later the forum would be buzzing about it.
Also, I believe the point of a Q&A is like a “Behind the Scenes”. To give people a peak in what/how things are happening. Given the open nature of Eve, I don’t really see the point of it to be honest. Why would I post in a Q&A when i could post outside a Q&A and get the same answers?
