Cogito, ergo procuro.
Mon 30 Mar 2009
As a developer it's impossible to get a feel for the popularity for an idea if you only have two people arguing for and against the implementation of a certain feature. Does that mean it's an even 50% split with the 5,000+ active users? Undoubtedly not, but it's impossible to gather your thoughts on the matter without your input.
That said, there are a few key requirements for using this forum...
Do use this forum if:
It would probably be best if you refrain from using this forum if:
Voting for/against suggestions:
A note on options: We cannot have options for everything, and they're harder to implement than just you deciding it should be one. Though making a controversial change an option instead is a great idea, we can only implement a limited number of options before it starts to get either overwhelming for the user or for the coder(s) to maintain. Please consider this before piping up with "why not just make it an option?".
Above all, keep your eye on the prize. No, that's not you, it's the average user of RPoL who possibly can't do HTML, doesn't have their own web site, doesn't know how to upload, doesn't have a 24" screen, and doesn't have a fast Internet connection. We can suggest features until the cows come home, but if it's going to confuse 90% of the user base or require knowledge/equipment they don't possess then it won't get implemented.
Thanks, and I look forward to your invaluable input.

And two seconds silence for the moderators who make this all possible by running RPoL day by day, 'cos I know I don't!
Development blog (and possibly other random garbage) is sporadically updated here.
