Not that Im imply that imms NEVER listen to our ideas...
When was the last time an idea was implemented from this
board? Im sure it happened, I just cant seem to remember when!
Was it recent but something small that I overlooked?

I skimmed over the last 2 weeks' worth of code changes (the
ones before that aren't on welcome anymore).
Here's the ones I saw which I remember being player suggestions...:
rent timer not ticking down in safe rooms (source: Q & A)
pretitles displaying more often (source: idea file/Q & A/tells)
new liquid types (source: idea files/generally people wanted them)
group/report using color codes (source: Q & A)
wall changes (source: discussion board, Q & As, in-person discussions)
That's just a rough sampling of the last 2 weeks, I may have

So there ya go, this board is pointless.. save your suggestions
for the Q/A thing. Hmm, and I always thought that was for newbies.

That's the idea I get too, all quoted were Q&A, even those said good on
this board don't get imped.

Reason for that is simple. Q and A people interact, hammer out the
immediate downfalls, and something simple can be solved on the spot,
though at the risk of only listening to the people present. Imms
don't reply often to posts on the discussion board, hence not much from
this board is implemented.

Just FYI, the posts from the discussion board pretty much established
our working bible on what needs to be considered for balance changes.
At one point I had the URL posted for it, it hasn't been updated
though since I originally posted it.
I don't have time to keep it up to date, but when I get a chance,
I'll add stuff that I see here.

I noticed pretitle suggestions back in the redemption point post
which has since been implemented (sans redemption point useage) and
-poke welcome- recent changes to hit/dam stuff, which is practically
the only subject matter on this board.
From what I've seen imped, this board actually influences a large
number of changes in the game, whether they're the ones suggested
here or not. The issues are read and acted upon in some fashion, it
just takes time (imagine that).

Another thing -- look at the types of ideas which come in through this
board as opposed to other sources. This board is most often used for
balance change suggestions and big ideas. Those are the kind that
go in more slowly, in general. I couldn't put this on the list
when I posted earlier, but now I can -- the issue of damroll
was discussed at great length in many locations, not the least
of which was this board.

I wrote the post before all the changes on hit/dam.

saying 'discussed at great lengths by morts' sounds more
like it to me. Well, looking at this board, anyway.

ok, im gonna add my two cents and try to be civil for a change
I agree with Poetry, I see a lot of great ideas posted here,
and seldom so i see an append from an Imm on the ideas
it would be nice to at least see what you Imms are talking about,
or at least that you ARE talking about it
what a great idea! I will talk about it with the Imm
staff. we will post more appends here as we come to some sort
OR anything like that would be keen
-steps off his soap box-
I myself don't go to Q&A because the spam is hard for me physically
so this is rally my only way to get my ideas across, but since i agree
with Poetry, I have stopped posting new ideas here
