I was thinking about the use of this section
Most of the times people are posting suggestions about features that have already been thought through by the ESF team
So that makes the suggestion section quite useless

I suggest that ESF team post a list of things and features that require new ideas, etc...
Think that it would add efficiency to this section

But that can prove to be a little too revealing. Its easier just to let people have their ideas, and staff can elaborate as necessary, and put the idea in context.
Almost everything has been thought through by the team anyway, but theres always the possibility that a person disconnected from the development can come up with something truly ingenious and simple.

A bug/ticket system would be better, every time a suggestion is approved, a ticket will be made, and people can view those tickets in case they have the same suggestion.
Not sure if they've got this already tho :)

A suggestion that has approval doesnt always mean it survives the design process, until someone comes up with it again and it finds its way back in there XD

Ingenious system, though I foresee one problem: people won't read it. Well, most people won't. I mean, people can't even be arsed to read a FAQ right now and just post their questions that have been answered 5 years ago. I don't see how a ticket system would work for those people.

I never read FAQs cause it's always general on each forum, other people just don't read it because it's too much work/or don't even know its there.

IF you tell the players to use a bug tracker system, they will search in there, because it's much easier than searching through 1000 of posts with a common search tag.

Trust me, the team had a bugtracker before, and people were still complaining about bugs that had been in the bugtracker for quite some time. Everybody on this forum should know there is a FAQ by the way, because you are sent to it as soon as you register.

We did. Didnt help. We had the bug tracker posted in the FAQ, on the main site and in various news and open beta related threads. noone bothered to check it let alone search its contents for already reported bugs. I should know i was managing the community reports >.<

I did suggest an outline for ESF: Final some months ago, which could possibly cut down on the number of suggestions and give users something to work with rather than rely solely on speculation.
