How to Submit an Idea

If you’re reading this it probably means that you’re interested in a quick how-to on submitting an idea to PlayStation.Blog Share. It’s an easy process, but if you’re more of a visual person, take a look below.

Before you get started, the first thing to do is login with your PSN ID. After you’ve done that, check out our participation policy. By submitting ideas, just like comments on PlayStation.Blog, you’re agreeing to everything stated on that page. You can find it right beneath that big green button. Feel free to check out our FAQ while you’re at it if you have any lingering questions about Share, or come back to it later.

The last step is to click through to the idea submission form. This is where it gets good!

Begin by logging in with your PSN ID. When you’re ready to submit an idea, our system may try to detect possible duplicates. If your idea is indeed a duplicate, please cancel your idea submission and navigate to the existing idea to vote for it, noting any differentiating details in the idea’s comments.

But if no duplicate ideas are detected, by all means click through to voice your opinion! Keep it straightforward and clear-cut if possible.

If your search does not produce a pre-existing idea, it’s time to progress through the submission form. The form itself is fairly straight-forward. We’re asking you to provide a few key items: a main category (e.g. Hardware, PlayStation Communications, PlayStation Network or Software), a title for your idea (be specific but short), and, of course, your big idea (character count). But, make it count. For the time being we’re limiting idea submissions to one per user per week.

Remember, once you submit an idea it will be placed in a queue for moderation. During normal work hours, if your idea is approved it should appear fairly quickly. Ideas submitted over the weekend or a holiday will be held in moderation for a bit longer.
