As posted by UpRisen, thanks for letting me borrow it.


After seeing thousands of horrible written suggestions I have decided to write everyone a little guide that can be used to minimize your - rates from us Suggestion trolls.

Part one: The idea
Firstly you get the light-bulb in your head, Then before you even start your thread read through the titles on the first 5-10 pages to see if it is already suggested, if it is just bump that one. IF your idea is totally outreagous, such as a weapon with 100 damage and acc that cost 1k, Then dont post it either

Part Two: The Do Not Suggest Thread
http://www.torn.com/forums.php?forumID=4&ID=12549283
There is a thread that has a list of suggestions that have been shot down so many times, even by staff that they are lost causes, If your idea falls anywhere on that list please do not post it, it will be destroyed.

Part Three: The Title
The title needs to be short and sweet, Do not use caps, Spell correctly, and make the title fit the suggestion.

Part Four: The Detail
This is the part that will kill 99% of you. DETAILS DETAILS DETAILS. Remember that this is YOUR suggestion so YOU come up with ALL of the detail, including, for example, The items price, the weapons stats, where to find something, how rare it would be, what kind of people it would attract, why people would do it, how long it would take, or how long the drug would last. After YOU Give all the details we will tell you what we like and dont like about it, you then edit your post accordingly, Dont say you are just making the idea and its up to us to decide, its YOUR suggestion so YOU do all the work. If you dont post all the backing details your suggestion will get rated - and killed. Do NOT under any circumstance offer any kind of reward for rating your suggestion up or offer bribes. if you are caught doing so your thread will recieve a thumbs down from all of the trolls and be discredited aswell as a hefty share of bounties

Part Five: The Screenshots
These are always nice to see, It shows that you care enough to do more work for your suggestions, and it also helps players understand what you suggest, and when you are suggesting an item then they are much more appreciated. Now your suggestion wont be killed because you dont have a SS, but alot of players wont like it as much.

Part Six: The Grammar
Make your post legible, You wont be destroyed for minor spelling and grammar errors, But if you talk "l33t" or just with horrible spelling then your suggestion will not be taken in good light and will be shot down

Part Seven: The Criticism
We trolls will be harsh on suggestion, if we see a problem with it we will attack it full force so that you know to edit it, if you get offensive with us you will lose, we outnumber you and we generally agree with all the same points. So if someone says something is bad or needs changing dont get mad, dont yell or flame us, and dont attack or bounty us, if you get hostile we will respond with deadlier force and greater numbers. So aslong as you play nice with your replys we will play nice aswell. Clanys note: They are working on it though! They are tormented souls from so many bad suggestions!

Part Eight: The Bumping
Only bump your thread If it is taken in good light, if you get -10 rating please do not bump it, if your thread hasnt been bumped on a few weeks, do not bump it, if it is on page one or 2, do not bump it, But if it is in positive rates and page 3 or back it is acceptable to bump.

And that ladies and gentlemen is how to make a proper suggestion

So, because I have my own personal stalker troll that rates all my posts down, I can't bump it even though no one has commented on it and no one else has rated it down?

Funny how the discredit shows up as +300 and +400 on the threads... too bad there's no simple and foolproof way to prevent this...
(edit: actually "Suggestions" is pretty clean of bribery. Mostly Stocks, and probably Trading, where the rate-bribes take place)

Great original thread, and now great sticky! As flavorful as the original!

There's always a bunch of Stocks threads with b/r bribes. I'm pretty proud to say that I got my forum score without EVER asking for rates from others, and NEVER offering rewards for a rate.

Bumps I feel differently about. In economic matters (stocks, trading) bump-bribes are like paid-advertising.

Just saying... all your forum score is not from rates...

You get points for many other things as well

Including a certain amount of characters in your post

For example I got +1 for this post

The idea behind that is that even if you don't make threads you can have a forum score equal to your post count.

only if you post more than 26 characters in each post and you started playing after the score was introduced... it would take me a TON of + rates from threads with me only posting new threads to get mine equal.... no idea how bogie managed to do his

If its made short then the concept is halfway understood by the reader. If its too long and you dont read it then all us suggestion trolls get to laugh as the suggestee makes a shit thread while we link to this thread and poke fun at him when he says that he did/didn't read it.

This way everyone in suggestion section wins^)
