Default Rejected suggestions list

Howdy all,

While racking my tiny little brain for suggestions for new spiffy S & F features (as per developer request), I happened upon a post in the German forums listing all the suggestions that have already been turned down. I didn't see a similar list here on the English forums (if it exists, apologies; see also: tiny little brain), and I found it kind of interesting, so, um, I translated it. Here, have some words!

Yep, Ragorth, that's the one. Maybe I'll just put it in the original post... always good to cite your sources and all...

And yeah, I'm sure they've rejected plenty of other suggestions since then but I figured it was a start - I've seen several of these posted here, wanted to suggest a couple of others myself. I dunno, I'm a bit too lazy to go back through and search for others, but if anyone knows any more, I guess we could start compiling a list here or something...?


UPDATE: I asked about this in the German forums and was told (four minutes later! such efficiency!) that when game staff edit posts, you can't always tell from the "last edited" date... so I can rest easy in the knowledge that they've been updating their list, even if it still says May 2013 at the bottom.

It's unclear at the moment, but I'm under the impression that for the moment, everything is on the table as they sift through the laundry list of ideas.

I expect you know better than I would, Koopa I have just noticed that the suggestions forums for the two countries are often kind of like:

Player1: "Hey, wouldn't it be cool if we had XYZ"
Everyone else: "Totally, that would be super"
Player1: "Totally"

Player1: "Hey, wouldn't it be cool if we had XYZ"
Everyone else: "Ugh, seriously, that idea's already been rejected twice, learn to use the search function and read the rejected-suggestions list before you post"
Player1: "...oh"

...and I wasn't sure if it was because the US forums didn't have that list of rejected suggestions, or if it was mainly a question of, I dunno, tone...

They've implemented things that were originally rejected, or like with potion stacking, addressed a suggestion that was rejected in a different manner (that was done to deal with inventory).

We don't have a rejection list partly because of this, and partly because Playa doesn't communicate what's rejected outright.

Aha... now that is interesting! And should probably be broadcast louder on the German forums, so that maybe people there will stop spending quite as much time snarking at each other about learning to use the search engine...

Er, in that case, you can take down the original post if you think it's counterproductive - I thought that list was more official/final than apparently it is.

We do ( mainly me ) will say when something has been mentioned in the past a few times for ppl to use the search function and yes thing have also been yeah that would be cool but it has been shot down before unless you can come up with a different way to do it then no use continuing on with the topic. (Even some of my ideas where shot down that way)
