All due respect, but no matter how much I agree with the quality of not alone the Ukraine dvd cover, but even more releases like ROTC and Rock Montreal - this is a rediciolous petition.

Hi! I deeply respect the right of fans to express themselves, but wouldn't be better in terms of results if more humble goals were established? For instance: organizing fans to make questions or send messages to the guys, instead of each one sending his/hers - the chances of getting a good thoughtful answer would be better and it'd avoid flooding the guys and the people who work with them with the same questions or the same messages. There's often a lot of common ground between fans!

There could be messages as simple as asking for Brian to comment on or share his memories of a certain concert, for instance. All done in a respectful and kind way. 

I think steps like this could improve a lot the relationship between the fans and the band. By doing this I think fans would gradually open up room for more delicate discussions or criticisms.

Just a thought. 

I hope it helps.

Take care!

P.S.: As dear user Mr. Mercury said, I think the message has already been posted!

Yara,

I've suggested this time and again here, including the amazing, disappearing, Greg Brooks as general "hub" for the collation of requests / questions.  The idea is that a 'committee' of knowledgeable fans from here have a direct line into QPL for the betterment of the band's output.

Strangely enough, Greg has never even bothered to comment on it, despite it being widely accepted by many here as a great way of building a relationship.

Petitions such as that listed here will do nothing other than alienate QPL further - as if their heels could go in any deeper!

Did you hear the one about the Queen Polish Fan club?

They worship one band but can't remember who it is.

Hi, Been. How are you? I hope you're doing great.

That's a pity. Your idea does sound very good and, as you remarked, if most of the people here accepted it, I think there's no reason why it shouldn't have been tried or at least given a chance. Maybe it's too late now, I don't know. But it does seem a very good idea and I can't see why GB or even fan clubs, though I deeply respect their stance, didn't take an interest in it. :-((

Well, but there's a thought. Thank you very much for answering my message and I loved reading your feedback.

Take care!

Yara
