On my endless flow of requests...

Post  Orlitoq on Fri Feb 28, 2014 11:41 am

Spoiler:
Hehehehehe, I just received a Skype message telling me that my request for highlighted font colour in the FAQ was a bit much, and that "Omg you are so fricking demanding lol" Another message poked me with "That's good. Now change it this way! Now this way! Now do this!? No. Razz"

Both were sent in good fun, and I totally am taking them that way too! Just in case it was not clear though I wanted to let you guys/girls know that I really do appreciate your patience, and the consideration that people here show my requests.

That being said... yeah, I am definitely going to have more questions/requests/demands... It is not because I feel that nothing you guys do is good enough for me. It is because I am just trying to do what I can to help make this a place people want to play... Well, that and my brain never turns off.

If I do wear on your nerves, please let me know. If myself, or others, have requests that seem silly/ridiculous/unnecessary I would really appreciate it if you could directly address what about that request is either mechanically unfeasible, or thematically/lore inappropriate.

If those of us who are suggesting things are given clear reason why something cannot/is not being done... well, that goes over far better than a blanket decree, or cryptic "not gonna happen." When the staff spell out why something cannot work, those who offer up requests can see what they need to do to refine/reconsider their suggestions to being them more in line with the goals of the staff. Additionally, if there was something as simple as a misunderstanding about the intent of the suggestion, then seeing the logic behind its failure to be implemented can help the original poster to move to correct that misunderstanding.

For instance, I made the request the other day that Questions in the FAQ have their font colour changed to increase readability. I asked for that immediately on the heels of Serenity changing the format of the FAQ to suit another of my requests.

Serenity's response was:
Serenity wrote:It would, however I'm not going to attempt it as it took me about 6 goes just to get what's already there working. Razz

It kept messing up with all the BBCode stuff, silly forumotion. I dread to think what it'd do if I added colours as well as everything else. Probably turn everything green, no doubt. xD

And you know what? That is a totally fine response. Staff here is working really hard, and have SO MUCH that they need to handle that a simple font colour change is not very high on their priority list, especially when it may cascade into technical errors that would require a great amount of thyme to remedy. Serenity's response gives a clear reason why this request cannot be addressed... at this point in thyme Smile

That is both easy to understand, and far better to accept and respond to than a "No" or a "Stop with all the demands!!"

TL;DR: Thank you. I will be back with more ways to bug you. I appreciate when the staff gives reasoned responses to the requests of their player community, and I suspect other players do too.

We have no problem with people giving requests and ideas for the server. The only thing that was bugging some of us was the insistent requests for screenshots, despite our having already answered as to our policy for them.

The Screenshots are going to be given at the Builder's discretion, as they have been doing, and that's fine. Repeatedly asking about it doesn't speed things up, it just makes the staff reluctant to think about it, actively making them less likely.

That said, if anyone has any thought out ideas or requests, please feel free to share them. We're all wanting to make this server the best we possibly can, and even if we deny a request or disagree with an idea, the fact that you lot are trying to help is still appreciated. Your input is still important to us.

So please, feel free to help out. ^.^

Sorry to derail but.

I think you guys should add more screenshots. It'll attract people to see that the server's progressing and a certain build-monkey is working. *Nod nod.*

This build-monkey has been worked to the bone.  Razz 

We probably should add more screenshots. Thing is, I just haven't had the time (or energy) to grab more, seeing as how all my time spent devoted to the server has been building, building, and more building.

Maybe another staff member would be so kind... *coughhintcough*

As I have only gotten back from something that needed seeing to, see that you want screenshots. Instead of making demands, why not make a request. Is there something in particular you want to see.
