OA, ST and SW: The Big Three
#3
OA and those properties are incredibly different from a business perspective. OA is a business, we pay taxes and collect revenue, but we've never been commercially driven. We're a community, a worldbuilding hobbyist group. We've been able to focus on making the setting what it is because we aren't concerned about mass market appeal. ST/W are heavily driven by profit. Because of that the films, books, tv shows etc are not well made in terms of worldbuilding, they don't have complex storylines. They generally just focus on interesting CGI and action scenes. That's all.

If we seriously wanted to do that for OA we'd need a radically different business plan. Those of us who are on the company board would have to look into actually hiring staff, putting in production schedules, investing in publishing books, shows (animated or otherwise) etcetera etcetera. It would completely change what OA is. It would no longer be a welcoming site for those interested in a niche universe to come and enjoy and create. To make serious money we'd likely have to dumb it down for broad appeal.
OA Wish list:
  1. DNI
  2. Internal medical system
  3. A dormbot, because domestic chores suck!
