No trolling in this thread please. We know Nexon has problems but if I tell them "fix your pomegranate, hackers are pineappleing up the game," they'll probably kick me out. Depending on how this goes, this could be a very good opportunity to address some issues or at best have an intellectual discussion. At least 1 person there will not be brain-dead or be a 13-15 year old idiot. This is what I know so far:
- Going to talk about MapleStory in a group discussion. It's a private event so only those invited are allowed to attend. Any friends/relatives that show up but were not invited will be asked to wait in the lobby. Discussion time is 2 hours.
- Compensation is $125 cash + 25k NX (this is one of the main reasons I'm going)
- I have to sign an NDA form that states "All information Nexon America discloses to you during this session is confidential. By signing this form you agree that you will not disclose any information or feedback discussed"
- Any media, notes, etc that take can be used for anything they want (excluding any private information e.g. name/address)
- They have offices in El Segundo (where this will take place), Tokyo, Seoul, and Europe.
- Their form has blockparty avatars all over it
I don't know how the discussion will carry out but if anyone's got ideas or wants to voice their own things they want to discuss, go for it. They contacted me by phone and verified some of the answers I gave (i can disclose this phone conversation if people are really interested).
All in all, I'm excited. This is the 3rd focus group I've applied for (I think they've only had 3 so far anyways) and finally I got picked.
