Dear Players

We have been working hard to bring the ideas section up to date. There will be 3 changes to the idea section that will be implemented with immediate effect.

First, we would like polls added to each new idea, rather than reading through several posts of just +1 or -1. Please use the poll for voting for an idea and the comments section for comments or questions or possible additional thoughts. +1 or -1 only posts will be removed and the poll used to indicate the popularity of an idea. Please read the Idea section polls thread for more information on what polls are and how to add them to your idea.

This is a section that tends to generate a lot of discussion which is wonderful and debate is a great thing. However, when disagreeing with an idea, please state why. Comments such as "this is the dumbest idea ever" without context as to why or what would make it better, do nothing to add to the discussion and will be removed. Respect for your fellow players is key at all times.

Second, we have added a new section, the Unformatted Ideas folder. Ideas that are not formatted will be closed for discussion and moved into the unformatted folder. Once the owner of the idea has formatted the idea, it will be moved to the main section of the forum and open for discussion, to edit the idea the owner of the idea thread would need to message A Forum Mod to open the thread, If the idea is not formatted after a month, it will be moved to the Idea Archive. Please see the Guide to Formatting ideas thread to see the format the idea should be in, and from there, you can copy the format.

Third, when an idea has been forwarded to the developer's team, the thread will be closed for any discussion, as the idea is out of our hands once it has been forwarded.

Thank you to all the players who have submitted or discussed various ideas, and to those who submit ideas in the future. We have seen and forwarded some great ideas from here and this section of the forum could not be possible without you.

We have updated the Do Not Suggest list. We've also made it its own subforum within ideas so it is easier to find. We've moved implemented ideas to the Ideas Archive section as well.

Please read the section on Do Not Suggest and do understand that this will be a fairly continual work in progress. :)
