I have noticed that some studios like mine have lots of producers.  However, other studios have much fewer producers.  Let's have a discussion on this topic.  We can discuss the advantages and disanvantages of each philosopy.

Eve12 - Thank you for your input. This topic is discussed extensively in our NEW FAQ section - specifically in   

 

https://forum.uk.big...uide/?p=18421 

 

You should find the answers to any Producer questions in there. Look around while you are there. Some people spent a lot of time anticipating questions and explaining everything you need to know in these FAQ's!

When I was a neophyte boss for Busty Spiderbabes, I found myself in charge of a studio with six active players out of a roster of twelve. Our previous boss had stopped logging in, chat was dead, we had no studio improvements. I was desperate to stir activity, so I "sold" the producer positions. A donation of diamonds, or of a large enough number of notes, and I would promote the player.

 

That was mostly ineffective. I ended up with everyone being a producer, but all I got were one-time donations without any appreciable activity improvements.

 

...But it gave us enough resources to buy a couple of studio improvements, and that attracted more active players. As the studio grew, I stopped selling the producer slots, and started promoting only players who were volunteering and helping the studio. The diamond buyer who was funding studio improvements. The recruiter, tirelessly finding us new players. The cruise director, who kept chat lively and sexy and fun. The warrior, always ready with advice about how to win duels and how to improve our performance in studio fights. The temple warrior, with research and advice about optimal temple strategies.

 

I found it better to have producers who cared about the studio, who did stuff for the studio, who were good examples for the rest of the studio. I have never been at a loss for good candidates since I changed style, but I keep it to a small dedicated group who cover the necessary roles.

 

Having said that:  YMMV. It's more about the boss's personal style than it is about "the one true way". 

 

Have fun however you go about it.  :)

Retired from the game.  Not from life.

To me, (in my studio) a Producer is an earned right, someone I would entrust to run things in my absence.

These are all good points.  Thanks for your input :) 

 

I tend to make everyone a Producer unless they are absent for long lengths of time.
