* ''VideoGame/StarWarsGalaxies'' did this often. Sony often held contests on the official forums that subscribers could enter. Not only would the winners have their artwork or stories featured in the game, but it had the added benefit of making these fan submissions official ''StarWarsExpandedUniverse'' canon.

Added DiffLines:

* In a different ''Series/DoctorWho'' example, the audio soundtracks of the episodes that were [[MissingEpisode junked by the BBC]] survive thanks to audio recordings made by fans from the original broadcast, which were later returned to the BBC archives. Uniquely, the only colour copy of episodes 2-7 of "The Ambassadors of Death" is an early home video recording made from the story's original US broadcast by a Canadian fan, which is of low quality but was used in the story's DVD reconstruction.

* The ''Series/{{Mythbusters}}'' requested socks for the Knock Your Socks Off Myth (was originally going to be the "Lost Socks in the Dryer" myth, but they changed their minds). This is in addition to all of the unsolicited items sent in by fans.
** Many myths to test are suggested by fans on their forum. Most of the retests are based on users in the forum, the exception being the re-retest of the Archimedes death ray requested by UsefulNotes/BarackObama.

* ''Series/Bewitched'' had the episode "Sisters at Heart" written by several inner city school kids that touched on racial issues. The writing staff only added content to ensure the episode met standards and practices and was of appropriate length. All changes were approved by the students.

A common form is to directly ask fans for stuff, and they send it in. Sometimes there is a contest for a major thing to incorporate. Credit is usually given to the senders, partly as a courtesy to the fans, and partly to avoid {{Plagiarism}}.

* This is one of ''VideoGame/SoundVoltex''[='=]s major gimmicks. The ''Sound Voltex Floor'' campaign allows fans to submit their own songs for inclusion within the game. Many submissions in ''Sound Voltex Booth'' are remixes of existing {{BEMANI}} songs, although artists have started submitting more original songs, especially in ''Sound Voltex II''.

* ''VideoGame/MassiveChalice'', a WebSite/{{Kickstarter}} funded game, allowed backers (above a certain level) to construct their own blood-lines. Allowing the creation of standards, house colours, character names, mottoes and battle-cries. These where then split into thematic and non-thematic content. Allowing the player to choose to live with content that adds to the immersion of the game and stuff that will probably make you laugh (you can of course choose both if you want a mix).

* Many games crowd-funded on {{Kickstarter}} or similar sites offer the option of submitting content as perks for backers. Generally, this is something minor like naming [=NPCs=].
