    We had one of these in the old forums, it's basically just a stickied thread at the top of the suggestions forum to tell people what they shouldn't suggest because it will definitely never be implemented.

    eg
    • Experience bar
    • Dogs
    • Sex
    • Mobile phone application
    • Rape/torture/GBH
    • Babies
    • Removal of IP block
    • Controller support

    First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they keep laughing, then they start choking on their laughter, and then they go and catch their breath. Then they start laughing even more.

    Eh... maybe there is a reason they didn't re-add this. Although some of these, well, most of these seem reasonable, and I doubt it, but if the community, for whatever reason, really got behind one of these ideas then I imagine it would be added, well, some of them, a few I never see the community getting behind in the first place.

    Even if the community wanted controller support, ched still wouldn't add it due to issues with it in the past

    If it became in his best interests, he'd try to. Although I'm puzzled why you'd want such support.

    I just think you shouldn't really limit the suggestions again, if an idea is bad, the community will shoot it down, simple.

    They generally follow that diagram when deciding if to implement something.

    If you really want to implement rape I suppose you could suggest it, but in general it would be better to limit the posts to ones that aren't offensive or never going to happen.

    Lol, I see your point but, Ched want's to make money so he can keep paying to keep this game up, or have extra to make it better to increase his profit to further improve the game.

    First rule of business may be survival, but you shouldn't ignore other needs.

    As for what you think I'd suggest... I doubt that will ever have much support even if it was suggested and I would not like to see it. Way too dark.

    Well, I'd quite like some sort of sorting option for the Suggestions forum. It could even just be: accepted, suggested, declined.

    press HERE for old forums





    THIS IS THE EXACT C/P FROM THE OLD FORUMS



    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 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

    The main reason that most excellent stickies did not get re-added is b/c they couldn't be brought over and no one took the time to remake them.  R+

    Please check out my suggestions and rate them up if you like them: Here and here.

    I suppose, I just hope this particular sticky doesn't get remade. Although it was reasonable, it did bring a sense of limitation and mild intimidation when looking to suggest something that no matter how many players liked it, there's always a chance the staff would just say "nope".

    Even if we all wanted $1t, we still wouldn't get it. Such is life.

    First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they keep laughing, then they start choking on their laughter, and then they go and catch their breath. Then they start laughing even more.

    I did read it, I read it through and through, and that is my opinion. They can add anything to a do not suggest list any time they like.

    Admittedly, most of the things on the list I'd never suggest myself anyway.

    Edit: $1t? That isn't a suggestion, thats asking for a handout

    They can already not add something. The suggestions forum isn't some sort of compulsory thing where the admins are legally obliged to give us what is in it. They choose what to add, this sticky is simply to stop people filling the forum with pointless posts about things that are confirmed to never be added or have been suggested so many times that it just isn't worth it at the moment.

    First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they keep laughing, then they start choking on their laughter, and then they go and catch their breath. Then they start laughing even more.

    Look, I see your point, okay. I just disagree with it.

    I'm not going to downvote this because I don't think it's an awful idea, I just don't agree with it.
