Magic

Crafting Systems

Civilizations

New Creatures

Infrastructure systems

Mechanical Systems

UI and Other Game Mechanics

Would be the ones I'd put in.

Infrastructure Systems would be anything that falls into the category of making things that are necessary to live. Production systems and such. Also things like 'waste' which everyone keeps demanding.

This isn't where suggestions go. This is a thread discussing the layout of where suggestions go.

One thing I noticed is that on the eternal suggestion voter thing there were 3 suggestions within the top 20 that have been implemented already to the point where they could be removed from the list

Specifically:

Viewing dwarf mental status
Retiring forts
Aging birth and death after world gen

Removing these would allow people who voted for them to vote for other things and it would
Update the list to make it a more accurate representation of what people want in the game

That would probably be better suited to the Eternal Suggestion Voting thread.

I know it might not be the best thread to put it, but pretty please, can we have this mod installed?

There are some threads I regret writing on because they keep cluttering my view every time I hit the Show new replies to your posts. link.

I'm curious as to how a tank would evolve. Would it climb out of the primordial ooze wiggling it's track-nubs, feeding on smaller jeeps before crawling onto the shore having evolved proper treds?

Toady is the only one that has the ability to do that (possibly ThreeToe as well), and he doesn't follow this thread regularly, so you should send him a PM if you want him to see that.
Out of curiosity, do you know if that's compatible with SMF 2.0.9? It does list a handful of 2.0.x versions that are older than what this forum uses, but I'm not familiar enough with SMF to know if any versions in between could have broken compatibility with that mod.

As a suggestion who comments in threads

1) Do not tell people to post in Megathreads when they come up with a specific suggestion. Megathreads are the book equivalents of "reference books" and "Encyclapedias".
2) Do not link people to other threads that are "In the same general area" but aren't the same suggestion.
3) Mods are not a replacement for any suggestion. Do not bring it up except accompanied by "While you are waiting for this to be implemented, here is a mod that does this". Do not forget these words, they will smoothe out a lot of arguments.
4) Remember that to the person who makes the thread they believe in their own suggestion and are sharing it with hopes of improving the game. Be honest, but don't rip into them.
5) Alternatives and building on other suggestions are far more valuable then saying a suggestion is bad. If it is possible, think of ways it could be implemented.

As for people who make threads
1) Always properly name your thread. The main topic and the specific topic for example "Mounts: Saddles providing a riding bonus"
2) If you have multiple topics that are too numerous to list. Pick the best suggestion in your list and make that as the title with a "+ Other suggestions". OR find a common thread between them.
3) Always search first before posting, as well as the dev list.
4) Stay away from vague "Do better" suggestions. Suggestions need to be specific. "Combat needs to be more interesting" is vague, what could make combat more interesting?
5) Try not to include fixing bugs as a suggestion. Certainly they need to be fixed, but they aren't really a feature.
6) People won't like your suggestions, it will just happen. People will pick on small details or dislike it for fairly asinine reasons. This doesn't mean your suggestion wasn't good.
7) Avoid complaints as suggestions as well. "Dragons aren't fun" isn't specific, do you want them improved, removed, what about them needs to be improved and why?

Are there any third party sites we can use? (Not Reddit, too hard to view and comment on less popular old threads.) It has to have voting and decent search.


Brothers and sisters, how about Github? Use the issue tracking as the suggestions board and the thumbs reactions as votes. If i can get Toady to sticky it i'll add the old Eternal Voting suggestions.


Soooo, toady is worried about trolls, which i gotta admit is fair. Advantage of the now defunct suggestions ranker was that it colored votes according to post count. Sounds like we need another custom built utility (with more functionality), which hopefully shouldn't be too hard.

Hello everybody.
Excuse me if I didn't read the whole 8 pages of this thread.
I'm starting to get a real interest for the suggestion thread, and I'd love to have a place that is some sort of overview of what's the status of the conversation in the community. I see that there has been a tentative to put this overview somewhere:
http://dwarffortresswiki.org/index.php/User:Granite26/Suggestions
but it's not updated since 2009 and the suggestion thread keeps popping the same questions over and over.
Is there any effort active to give life to that wiki page? I would definitely love it, and I would give my contribution as I slowly research the topic that interest me.

thanks everybody!
