    They be watching uzzzzzzz. Well it's like any other company, they can't just do listen to every single one or do everything we tell them to, but it would be nice to have some feedback from them, at least we'd know what they think of our ideas, they do that and they're easily my favourite gaming company.

    I think it serves a purpose, and would not be happy to see it go.

    The only things that insure that our feedback will not be listened to is removing our avenues to give it or if we stop giving it.

    personally, those devs better not be surfing the net as it were. THey better be designing the next mod. The Moderqators (from what I understand) give the devs a synopsis of the forums (weekly? not sure) THen some devs, on their spare time or to clarify an issue, will respond. It would take too much time to post a decent reply on every thread (not a "pre recorded" one) and that time is pulled out of the devlopment time.


    As for threads; some are good some are bad. Good suggestions usually are read at least, then debated/refined by other posted and bad ones are usually closed or shot down by the posters.

    Having a friend who is a mod for a company, he said this is SOP for most internet companies with their own forums.

    If this is the criteria for feedback forums, then they should also delete the bug submission forum as well.

    To clarify:

    There is no more point to this subforum. It is currently used to troll/bait others into a flamewar. This is known by many, although I will refrain from naming names.

    Therefore, my suggestion is to remove this subforum entirely. It is not being used as intended anymore and is taking up space. After all, wasn't this the basis for the "New and Improved" Class Subforums?

    An alternative to this might be to have some form of criteria before you can make a suggestion. I'm being a little loose here, as there are many ideas for "criteria". However, some sort of filter is needed. I'm getting quite fed up reading several useless, self-serving suggestions every day and finding maybe one or two that have viability, only to see those ideas disappear under a cascade of "This is unfair!", or "Why can't it be like this other game?", and "Why is this so hard?"

    Yes, I'm quite frustrated. However, I do enjoy this game.

    I just wish we were being listened to in a better way.

    Edit:

    I agree with you zero and all the time it's either useless things verging on the inappropriate or pointless things. If you make a suggestion it should not be a quick tl;dr version, it takes time and patience to express ones thoughts on improving the game, not why certain things are "unfair" or "difficult". You wanted easier, look what happened, they nerfed epics so much so that you can get a iinsta-death specced caster to zerg their way through epic quests. To make even things immune to insta-death they brought the ultimate over-powered thing into the game, stackable DoTs. Now I'm not complaining that it should be returned to the old ways, nor am I suggesting that we should continue down this road. There needs to be tighter restrictions around certain posting and thoughts in this subforum.

    Where else would I find such amusing posts, besides the PvP section?

    It is quite obvious the devs are listening. Multiple suggestions that first appeared here later made it into the game.

    They have definitely used some of our suggestions in the past and do on occasion find gems in this dismal cavern of rough coal

    I've often wondered about that. Can you name one idea that was taken as whole cloth from here in the form that it was presented and implemented in the game? Most of the time I have seen ideas taken in name from here and the implementation has no relation to the original proposal(s) so I don't count that as "listening". Most of the time they are only concerned with feedback and suggestions for things that they have already programmed and are hoping to tote out soon.

    While they didn't take the idea whole cloth...

    Ever heard of the lyrics in a song "Some of God's greatest gifts are unanswered prayers".

    Maybe "Some of DDO's best answers are saving some of us from our suggestions"
