@ZOS_JessicaFolsom @ZOS_GinaBruno
Some time back you guys mentioned that you had discussed the possibility of getting 'Housing Reps'
@ZOS_GinaBruno This is great, hope you have some awesome contributors to add to the already amazing Reps list! Any word on the possibility of having a “Community Rep” program for housing or PVE in general? Many have requested the likes here on the forums, more specifically us in the housing community. Thx for your time!
It's something we've talked about, yeah. We just need to make sure we can fully support an additional program before committing to it.

I just want to follow up with you guys on this. There has been a lot of negativity starting to creep into the housing forums lately. We have gone from a community that rarely ever saw a moderators cautions to now seeing frequent reminders about forum rules. Much of this recent discord stems, I believe, from the perception that ZOS is unwilling to communicate with the community in relation to housing. Now, I appreciate that Cullen Lee appeared recently on ESO Live and addressed 3 issues but in general, the lack of communication on the forums from housing devs is, I believe, starting to result in a hostile undertone creeping into a community that was always very friendly.
I believe that having Housing Reps would help to improve the sense of communication with ZOS. It would allow us get answers to more of our questions and at least feel like we are getting some feedback.
Given that this is one of the most expensive (and from ZOS's perspective, potentially lucrative) aspects of the game, I think it would be important to expedite whatever discussions are being had on this. My impression from looking at the change in tone on these forums is that people are getting frustrated and disconnected owing to a seeming disinterested wall of silence from ZOS's side. I know this isnt the case, and i know you do listen, thats why i feel that some engegement program such as housing reps would change a growing, negative impression.
So, to that end I would ask beg you to come back to us on this and update us on where discussions are going on this topic.
Thanks & Regards,
Zypheran

    It would be great to have reps for Housing. Even if some community asks are not currently possible to do, I am sure there are community ideas that are doable.

    Hopefully they follow up on this... :)

    I believe they have reached out to people from what I’ve heard. I would love to be a console housing rep. I spend so much time in game on Housing it would be amazing to be a part of it. I am glad they have spoken to other equally avid housing players.

    That's interesting @ZAD1ST where did you hear that they had approached some people?
    I would have hoped they would have done this through an announcement asking people to apply. I know some people (I'm sure we all do) who would be very good in this role. I hope they would get the opportunity to apply or be nominated by the community.

    I would honestly love the chance to confer with the in-house team periodically to discuss issues / resolutions (and perhaps exchange ideas). After developing Addons for Housing for this long, I have an intimate knowledge of the API (for both Housing and the game itself at this point), so perhaps that could also be helpful.

    (and thank you for the +1's everyone) <3

    I would find it very strange if ZOS has approached other people behind the scenes without having approached you Cardi.
    I am delighted though to hear that you would be willing to be a housing rep. That settles it for me :smiley:
    "A vote for Cardi is a vote for progress!"

    I'm on board with this - I can stuff envelopes...or ballot boxes ;)

    Cons:
    • It’s a great idea so ZoS will never do it :(

    And this sums up literally every thing wrong with ESO in general

    @ZOS_JessicaFolsom @ZOS_GinaBruno Did a Housing Rep happen? There's been a lot of chatter about the recent houses but I haven't seen any Rep talk about them.

    Well, @R_K now works for ZOS, so that's a thing. :)
    Unfortunately Necessary Signature:

    MAX CP, played since beta, yes I know the game. Also worked in software dev/ops so yes, I know what I'm talking about.

    If you read this and rolled your eyes, maybe you need to stop assuming women don't know ***.

    I believe he will, yes. :) It would be nice if he were able to communicate some of ZOS’s plans or responses in regards to housing to us (obviously no fault of @R_K if he cannot).

    Regarding Potentate’s Retreat, I don’t expect it is reasonable to ask for modeling changes to a house soon to be released. If they were to make any changes at all, I think having the crystals in the water be a removable furnishing item has been most requested.
