I've been thinking about this a lot recently and I've realised that the bottleneck in development isn't me, but the suggestions. I look at IGF and can't see any topics that make me think "That's good, it's worth making and it'd definitely make the server more enjoyable" it's almost as if the community have lost the ability to come up with new ideas, we've had hundreds of updates in the last year but really, has the server changed at all in the last year? Well the player count hasn't, if anything it's worse, it seems that the only thing the community can suggest is little tweaks and utility additions and when crap like this gets the most votes you know something is seriously wrong.

So I was thinking, how about open the board to everyone? The suggestions wouldn't be any better though, there would be just more of them and more useless posts. So what are we going to do? I could just script what I want but that doesn't always work out well and as if having to make the stuff isn't hard enough I have to come up with all the ideas too? Then I thought, it'd be cool if someone actually reviewed the server as if it was a computer game or a movie.

A review would be much better than individual suggestions because individual suggestions never mention the root cause of the problem. For example there's a suggestion to allow you to cancel making drugs with a drug lab and the suggestion makes sense but what if all it doe...

Whichever gets the most votes, wins. Each player has a vote, so nobody can complain about the result.

If yes wins then nothing changes.

If no wins then RPGs will no longer be sold. However the already bought RPGs will remain and will not be restricted as LV doesn't do restrictions which make things "useless".
