Okay so in order to try to spare some hurt feelings (the trolls round here will eat you!), clean up the suggestions forums a bit and generally make this somewhere you can read suggestions without going through loads of crap. Here is a list of things NOT to suggest. I will try to explain why not on each from a staff point of view. This will save loads of the same threads being made.

If you post something on this list we will just begin graveyarding them to keep it nice and tidy in here.

These are things we are not currently interested in implementing or never interested in implementing. If we have interest in putting these into game, we will remove from the list. Currently though we have reasons for them not being ingame, so please don't suggest them.


1. Experience bar.
There has never been an experience bar in torn to let you know how close you are to leveling and never will be. We like to be different to other games who just hand you everything. The element of surprise when it comes to leveling is part of our game play. This is not a suggestion that will EVER be put in this game.

2. Dogs.
Really guys? No, just no. Will we ever live that down anyways? Once was enough. Never again.

3. Having sex with my ingame partner.
The only way this will ever happen is if you choose to meet them in RL. We will never code it.

4. Auto Leveling.
This is a player's choice of game play, who are we to tell them to level? It's not going to happen.

5. Remove Stealth Attacks.
This is already an option if players so choose to use it. It will remain that way though, an option. We will not force it upon you or anyone.

6. Outer Space meets Torn.
We will not be adding any moons, spaceships, or crazy outer space things that have absolutely no place in this game.

7. More Graphics.
This is a Text based game. Not graphics based. We have graphics and icons but the amount of lag having loads of graphics on our behalf would cause is surely not worth it.

8. Commenting on others profiles/images.
Could you imagine if you angered someone the comments left? I'm not sure how often you read things others say but people around here can be pretty harsh. This is just opportunity waiting to happen to slag someone off.

9. Fly from country to country.
You cannot bring back anymore items, you need to come to Torn and drop off whatever you purchased so this really does you no good anyways.

10. Complete Game Reset.
We pride ourselves on never resetting, many players have been here since the beginning and worked for 5 to 6 years on their accounts. This is a long term game, that takes patience to grow in, and somewhere you keep what you worked for. We want to keep it that way.

11. Points Market Cap Removal.
We are not removing the cap on points. We see this as a step to controlling out economy and feel it's the right decision.


12. Happy Items removed from Cool Down timers.
Chedburn wants all items that give a 'boost' on cool down timers. He reduced the times when they were first introduced but is not interested in removing the Happy boosting items from cool down timers.

13. Babies or Children.
There is just really no need? People could not keep dog's alive I can't imagine what would happen to our poor Torn babies. No.

14. A mobile phone application
Torn already has a mobile phone function, that is optimised for use from mobile phones. Do we really need an app? No

First ched comes in to implement a number of small suggestions and clansy comes in to kick some ass into the section.

I think suggestions section has finally had a good turn of events to help make things better^)

No suggestion can be as bad as the time travel or account sitter ones

point trees? or motorbike to the moon, or the option to delete an account by winning a fight

also would it not have been better to sticky goldenguards orginal thread, so he can edit it if an new crap idea starts being suggested more

Well Clansy is reposting it in a way that is more user friendly because most cant be bothered to read or look through a wall of text so "keep it simple stupid" is what works best.

Great work + I belive this will really help lower the bad quality threads in here. However what will happen if they choose to ignore this? Will there thread be put in the graveyard or is this just like when you click yes I'm 18 when watching tv online but slightly less effective?

9. Fly from country to country
You cannot bring back anymore items, you need to come to Torn and drop off whatever you purchased so this really does you no good anyways.


There are other reasons to travel too. Either to avoid being attacked in wars or to hunt people down. Or to pick up xanax in UK on the way back from rehab. It may still be a bad idea, but there are other reasons beside buying items that could justify traveling between other destinations.


Great thread anyway, this forum needs a clean up, and this sticky should help alot.

The main reason that that will not be implemented is that CHEDBURN personally killed the thread and said he won't be doing it... there you go. Ched's word is final

Oh she is just building up a list to be edited in at a later date, or stuff that is up for discussion behind closed doors. I PMed her one particular thing which Ched said "will never happen ever ever again...". Clansy said it will be added but:
1) I am sure she is busy with even more work now
2) I am sure some of the stuff that was added... may need staff discussion before they are sure they never will do it.

Some of the point related ones don't really need discussion seeing as Ched stated on the forums that the points cap will remain but that may be something to be discussed regardless of how many times users in this section have shot it down.
