Supporting a suggestion

This is a short guide for the latest update in the suggestion-section:

In every suggestion thread, you find a small box that allows you to support/non-support a suggestion:


Please use this simple poll to show your support towards an idea!
Please do no longer make short posts such as "I support!", "I like the idea!", "I don't support". These are considered as SPAM and will (and already have been (most of them)) deleted.

Suggestion topics should be used to discuss the main idea or to add further suggestions to improve the original idea. You can obviously also use this thread to explain (properly) why you support/why you don't support.

If you are the creator of a suggestion, then you may BUMP your suggestion after there were no replies in the topic for at least 2 days (48 hours).


Reasons for this change:
First of all, these "I support!" posts have always been rather annoying since it was hard to find qualified posts in a suggestion thread. Like I said, you can use the topics to add further ideas - and it's easier to find such posts when the thread isn't filled with this special kind of SPAM.

Secondly, the whole "Suggestions"-subforum is filled with ideas! And it's really (really!) hard for me to keep an overview and to find good (and commonly desired) ideas. With this simple poll system, it's easier to find ideas which are supported by most users.
This does obviously not mean that quantity is more important than quality - I will obviously still look through suggestions with a rather low amount of supports.

And most important:
A positive Support/Non-Support ratio does not mean that your suggestion is going to be implemented! It's still up to me/the staff to decide wheter an idea is worth the effort or not. Like I said, there are already hundreds of suggestions - and most of them are really awesome. But: We can't implement them all at once.

So... begging your friends to support an idea in order to get a very positive Support/Non-support ratio is both pathetic and useless :P The final decisions are still up to the staff.
Rather try to develop your idea properly.

I think there should be another function. It will be:

'This Suggestion has already been suggested by someone else.'

Click on "This should not be implemented" and then you are able to select this option.
