    I should point out that this is a "Popularity Poll" for voting on suggestions that have come forth from other, unlike a "Survey" which is crafted to aggregate feedback on a subject. The difference can be noted by their construction, notations in the survey details, and how the results are presented.

    Popularity Polls give voting weights to submitted entries to show more effectively which ideas were more or most popular, and the results are displayed as "weighted stars" next to that entry in the main index.

    Surveys are displayed graphically in separate results pages to show consensual view leans on particulars within a subject.

    wow, so many 'I do not support' choices from me this time around. Thanks, as always, for the work in putting this together, even if I don't agree with most of the proposals!

    I enjoyed the format of this poll: many occasions to express myself while not spending forever reading every proposition, @Andaro , great job here !

    We will still release "content surveys" that focus on a specific topic, but as those take more "crafting" they will be fewer and further between for better quality, and potential more impact, versus popularity polls, which are simply broad community votings.

    We would like to have a goal of at least 500 participants or higher for popularity polls, and currently we are at 172 at the time of this message. The goal number is high so that there is proper weighting, so help in spreading the word to our fellow players is much appreciated.

    And my apologies that the PopPolls are a bit long, but it was an evil necessity to move forward far enough through the entries so as not to fall to far behind.

    We *could* increase the size of the polls and catch up faster, but we would want to enable sign-in requirement so you could save your progress and finish at your convenience.........I'm open to input on this matter.

    Thank you for the hard work. I'm wondering, there are several popular and important suggestions that never got implemented. What happens to these suggestions since you have more direct contact?

    That would be nice if they did make a revamped character creation mode. Especially more options for hair style, body, maybe tattoos, etc.

    That is probably for the best. I'm definitely all for it.

    Edit : btw, I participated in the poll but was wondering how do we make it so our suggestions show up on the next month poll? Do we just post in these poll threads and some are chosen?

    Also wanted post a couple other suggestions that are probably (?) easy to incorporate. If this is the right place to post them.

    -increased character body customization sliders / fatter characters

    -ability to customize the size of character head, so it is proportionate to body

    -more (existing) costumes that can be equipped to other classes

    Really appreciate this idea to accept feedback / make polls. While I haven't played in a while, it definitely will be a nice surprise to see what has been added when I come back. Keep up the good work.
