The following is purely focused on BDO: General Gameplay. Please stay on topic in the comments, ty. There is a story about a business that mined minerals/oil or something and had decided to crowd source the public for ideas on where to look. As this was a completely open forum, everyone from any career position could pitch in, which resulted in unheard of strategies etc. due to the vastly different perspectives. A few of the ideas were acted upon by the business and it delivered outstanding results, and they rewarded those that provided the successful ideas with a portion of the earnings. Imagine the great loss they would've suffered if when those who were willing to submit successful ideas to the company decided to ban, block, and send an article of copy/paste rather than take the initiative to what amounts to simply doing their job.
