    Default Communication with the Estate

    Hi all the people like mikey dee, korgnax and gaz who have or could have this facility. I remember quite a while ago now when there was a thread for this or maybe we could have someone who could be that link?
    After all thats gone on with LV i think the estate needs a bit more closeness to the community.

    Whats everybodys thoughts??

    Nature im not competing with you but what i am talking about is a direct thread to the estate not just wishlists. Direct communication to ask questions , get some feedback from them, plus the other way for the estate to get communication from the fan community.

    There used to be a FAQ somewhere and then that was it. It'd be nice if the Estate had a community manager. I know Alicia works for the online team but more integration/effort on their behalf would be nice.

    Exactly and as Mikky Dee seems to be in contact with Alicia possibly she/he could be our communication.
    Yes there used to be Q&A to the estate, i really think that should try to happen again.

    Thoughts Gaz?? Korgnax?? Mikky dee

    Don't that still exist on the MJ website? i think it's still there but they probably stop doing it because people keep on asking the same questions over and over again.

    you can email them and see what they say. but you probably won't get it sadly.

    this would be nice. every time you send an email to the Estate it's like a bot replies to you. I think it's a great idea to make sure that they read and see what we want.

    I think thats where fans go wrong, at the end of the day the estate is a profitering buisness that MUST make money. Sometimes the products they will release will be completely what we want but we need to think about the big picture.

    This way i think we can give constructive critism and also requests and see what and how they will/would fulfill them.
    I hope this gets picked up as i have said more than ever the estate needs to be close to the fan community and the general public too.

    I'm not actually in close contact with Alicia, per se. I am, however, in very close contact with a small core nucleus of fans on twitter and on FB, who do have a direct line of communication with her. I am in close contact with others, as well, who have direct ties with the Jacksons and another who has contacts in LA and manages to speak to John Branca a couple of times a year.

    You would have to ask Gaz directly what his thoughts are about having a Q & A thread again, or perhaps resurrecting the old one. I can search for it and bump it up if others are keen for it. There was an "Estate News" thread, which I started up, a year or so ago, but I confess, I haven't been vigilant in keeping it updated. Until this year, there wasn't much to report and now there are separate, specific threads for everything that's been going on in 2019.

    I think this can work if they have people on their team to do it. seriously how many runs the estate? i would like to see more things that us fans want but we can't always get the we want. but it would be nice to get somethings we want. estate needs more ideas. and i think if fans tell them about it they might listen to us. but that's a maybe.

    They did come out with a few new items this year. they wasn't new music or concert footages. but it was something. fans need to look at the stuff they do bring out. they might not be music etc but it's something.

    Thanks Mikkydee for replying. Yes that would be great if you could tell people. I really dont think its just about products its showing estate support and likewise the estate supporting fan community etc. Kinda like keeping us informed. Being closer to the public through this avenue of communication.

    Yeah, communication with the Estate would definitely be nice. I remember I and a few others made a Christmas letter to a secretary (I don't remember who exactly) that worked with the Estate; so that's probably as close as we will get in regards to "direct communication"...
