Currently, we allow players to post suggestions on the forum and other players up/down vote them. We also allow ministers to post suggestions about their department. Recently, there has been some suggestions which were highly up-voted yet highly flawed.

Example 1
The suggestion about removing rapid transport system was highly up voted yet when it was implemented there was much complaining about it in-game.

Example 2
The suggestion about re-adding Aircraft Carrier Assault as a Criminal Event was highly up voted yet when it was implemented it was so unpopular when there were 700 players online only 6 criminals turned up to it.

In example 1, the voters didn't represent the views of all the players and in example 2, the voters failed to play what they had voted for.

Solution?

We need to look at different suggesting systems, post your ideas here and they will be included in a vote we'll have soon. The ideas that gets the most votes will have a second vote then the idea with most votes will be implemented. If the idea fails to solve these problems then I will either try another idea or simply ignore everyone's suggestions and script whatever I feel like.

List of ideas
1. Exactly how it is now with suggestions board and ministers.
2. Suggestions board and no ministers.
3. Ministers suggesting things only.
4. In-game voting system only.
5. Don't trust players with voting.
6. Use the SMF voting system instead so we can see down votes (suggested by Inferno)
7. Ministers appoint deputies and together they make super suggestions (discussed on IRC)

Note: Ideas which I know won't work and or are too complex won't be added to the list.

What is your suggestion?: Lettings guests view server media board.
Description of your suggestion and what it will improve?: It will allow players to enjoy watching some CIT Videos, Learn more about CIT server, see some new strategies to try and creat their own.
Prove that your suggestion is needed?:So lets say CatFish registered a forum account for CIT, he has to wait for it to be approved by an admin. In that time he will watch some videos from sever media to entertain himself and learn more about the server  :D

* Changelog

Wednesday 26th August 2015
- Fixed sometimes not getting a mission when driving the Tanker, playing as Trucker. (Arran)
- Forum: Increased maximum personal messages per hour from 8 to 20. (Arran + Luther)
- Made 'Van Heist' only spawn every 30 minutes, increased the pay by 300%. (Arran + Serious)

Tuesday 25th August 2015
- Re-added the old script where Taxi Drivers would get money from player passengers and Pilots would get money from player passengers (Maverick only) the passengers are automatically billed $200 every 15 seconds. Although that might sound like a lot the driver would only be making $48,000 an hour but he'd never have passengers for that whole hour, so it's still rather unpaid. (Arran + Annex)
- Added 10 of a random drug after getting 1000 damage when playing in the LV DM arena. (Arran + xMan.)

Monday 24th August 2015
- Removed ACA from CE rotation as you're all too lazy to actually go to it, even though it was a highly up-voted suggestion, which just proves how flawed the suggestion voting system really is or that you players simply have no idea what you want. (Arran)
- Added "Sherman Dam" to /gps locations list. (Brian)
- MHP added as Trial staff. (Staff team)

Sunday 23rd August 2015

- MasterYi added as Trial staff. (Staff team)

Saturday 22nd August 2015

- Fixed GPS breaking the hi-res radar. (Cheeze)
- Reduced the chance of the GPS system not working by having it ignore the way points that are in the sea, however there are still some other bad way points for example at airports that aren't connected to roads, so sometimes you'll get a message saying it couldn't find a route and that is caused by these bad way points.

- Lowered the DL3 requirement to £150 GBP of donations. If you already had DL3 this means you can sell a DL1 and still be DL3. In the unlikely event you bought DL1 x 4 from another player, I'll let you sell 1 of them. (Arran)
