Say we were thinking to branch the company to another area, yes it would be shared to employees and many customers in that potential area to feel the market interest out and help make that decision if it is worth it or not.
If we are having problems, it is expressed to both. Such as right now business is slow and we aren't shy to say it or hide it. Even many here know that.
Problems with equipment or installation, absolutely we share and fix. Say a hot water generator line breaks and floods an attic due to a fitting in the pipe. We find all customers we have same and go fix for free to protect us from future liabilities there.
Honestly, we are pretty open with both customers and employees, especially if specifically asked.
So, in your case to provide one line details of info and not openly speak to your community of testers about a potential to take dirt ovals and compete to get their opinions, I think is foolish.
On that note, IMO, we as a community of beta testers aren't really employees, but we're not really customers either. Sure we bought into it, but we didn't buy a game or sim to just play and mod. We also bought into the fact we are testers and the idea that we can provide feedback and improvements for the games official release.
I think I have a tear in my eye after reading this, Well put Geo
