Hello dear readers,
this one will be a quick one - but with a request, a serious request.
Over the last weeks and months I have noticed more and more people contacting me (via IRC, PM or even ingame) and sending me suggestions, concepts and idas. And then they asked me if I could not go suggesting them for them, because they felt that I somehow have magical influence on the admin, or that stuff just "looks better" just because I post it.
That is not the case. Please stop doing it.
At first: The admin does *not* particulary "like" me more than other players. In all our conversations our contact was strictly neutral and to expect anything else does good for no one.
Second: No suggestion has *ever* been implemented without strict review from the administration. It does absolutely not matter if the suggestion is from me, from you or from anyone else. If it is not good, it will fail. Even IF it is good, you still have to convince the admin.
Third: The game needs input from *many* players, not just a few. That is neither good for the game because it makes the trend of changes lopsided, it also is not good for the atmosphere in the suggestionbox. If you have a good suggestion, just go suggest it.
That does of course not mean that I won't help to find flaws or give hints when asked. However, what I will NOT do is:
- posting suggestions in your name
- taking your idea and create a complete concept for you (do your homework alone )
- doing the math work for you
- talking to the admin to "advertise" for your suggestion: do that yourself
Last but not least:
I. check out the last few pages of the suggestionbox if what you want is *already* discussed (or something very similar) - in that case participate there instead of making your own discussion
II. check out the fixed links for help HOW to make good suggestions
III. keep RL politics / beliefs or CN alliance politics OUT of suggestions. That will not lead to *any* results.
Good luck with your suggestions,
