Before a lot of you start bashing this, just hear Me out...
I'm going to get straight to the point with this thread. We've all seen over thousands upon thousands - if not millions of posts in the "idea's" section, where they are all the exact same idea that have either been shot down, or have been bumped up, Over and Over and Over and Over, again and again.
There are ALOT of Idea's that will never make it into the final game and have been suggested WAY too much in WAY too many posts and forums. Such as (Just to name a few) flamethrowers, grenade launchers/Rocket launchers, dual wield, flash grenades, Human Enemies in PVE, etc. So here's my Suggestion for what "I think" would make the forums a bit better.
I remember looking at "The list of Shame"
and thought of something that might help with all this Necroing and bumps of the same series of idea's.
What If we had a Topic similar to the "List of Shame", only have it list the Countless idea's that wont make it into the final game, and or idea's that have been suggested already a billion times before? And anyone who Ignores it, and posts an Idea topic about anything on that list, then that topic can be "flagged, locked down, or deleted from the forums entirely". This way, we can have people posting "New, fresh, and original idea's" in the "Idea's" section, as well as lessen the amount of flame wars that happen on those topics.
It is only a suggestion, and I believe that It would improve the "Idea's and Feedback" section, so that we can actually have creative idea's instead of the same uninspired set of idea's, over and over and over again. Let me know what you guys think.
Ok, Now bring on the hate...
