Drop the vote system here

biggalloot 3 months ago • updated by WW1GameSeries 3 months ago 7

A good suggestion is a good suggestion and should not be up for vote.  Let the developers make Verdun the game they wish it to be without having some poll here decide the merits.


The developers have my e-mail address and may message me for any questions and concerns with my suggestions, but a vote is impersonal and uninformative.  Anybody can vote in the current system without giving reasons for or against.


And actually, a good suggestion should not require comments from anybody.  The developers can ask for more information and decide for themselves if the proposal is worth their time.


Delete the votes.  Delete the comments.  Let all suggestions stand on their own merits based upon the decision of the development team.

Removing the votes defeats the purpose of this platform. It helps prioritize and poll a small part of the community. However something with a lot of votes does not necessarily mean it will done. That is the same for something with not a lot of votes, that might just be implemented anyway. That is in the end up to us.

The voting feature on this site is there to help prioritizing in what order issues/bugs should be addressed. The comment section is there so that there can be a discussion about a topic. A suggestion can be made better if there is a possibility to have a conversation regarding the topic.

A very good and fast way to get less in tuned with the community, is to restrict conversation and removed a easy way to show what's is bugging the playerbase

The issue though is players who disagree with a suggestion will form an army to down-vote it and it also tends to get pretty hairy. This is more of way to shield people with good ideas from trolls. However, I feel that the voting system has been and is still being heavily abused and that's holding people back who could actually bring something to the table. That's not exactly fair to the community either.

Yes, we got nothing else to do all day than to make alt-accounts and send downvotes on a couple of threads...

Like Korv said, the votes are here to hear what the playerbase thinks. It's a fault that happens a lot in other games that the devs don't listen to the players, now you want to make Verdun the same? 


And how will you make the difference in between a tcood and bad suggestion? Leave that to the small developerteam? Everybody is allowed to post here and it's the same who post that get to upvote, in the end it's still the devs who decide, we are just here to 'show' them if we want it or not. 


ps. Nobody is stopping you to get an army to upvote, if that's what you feel happy about spending your day with

This is nothing more than a ploy to silence the opposition to the ideas promoted by the realism community and Biggalloot himself. This is like the third time he's called for the silencing of individuals and it's absolutely disgusting.

Its indeed the second time, atleast, that bigpoop promotes censorship toward individuals.

Thats really worryin, and I think he has some dictatorship fetish as a devil disguised in angel.


It says a lot about the "realistic community" that cant handle to be roasted thread after thread

"herp derp everyone's opinion doesn't matter, I have direct contact with the devs to avoid public opinions because people don't agree with my dumb ideas"


biggalloot, your ego is like your stupid ideas that get downvoted. It is explained in your posts why the suggestions you make are bad and you can't take the criticism so you act like you can silence people. That's dumb, you deserve to be ridiculed if you think you have some kind of elevated status in this community. "The devs have my email so we can talk directly" as if you're the only person in this community that matters. Disgusting.
