    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.

    true, but i don't want to make my request complicated.

    Just one thing at a time. Increased fattness. very simple. very easy. Very little time investment. Make it happen, PA.

    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.

    All the decent ideas on the forum and you pick out the lowest priority issues to place in a poll? Simple QoL changes don't matter with the game at the state it's currently in, and some of these issues are pointless to add regardless. If the community finally becomes able to contact devs etc. after so many years of continuous complaining and paying NASA to ping the furthest stars with powerful beams of light to get devs/pa's attention, the one thing we will need is a concise list of major changes we need that will actually effect the game for more than a single month. I mean seriously this entire game is hanging on by a single thread which hinges on when the next decent mmorpg comes out, and after that there isn't going to be anyone to vote for silly nonsense QoL suggestions. Half of these issues and even some real issues for most people are solved simply by moving to a private server, which probably has the same player count as the main game. Just quit coasting on this nonsense when we could actually relay fixes that will keep the remainder of the player base in the game.

    Yeah, relevant suggestions are drowned under tons of supposed QoL, pets requests or CS hat-tips, of course those are more popular than your typical relevant request.

    Just a thing: A few(or if they/you have the time all) of the suggestions should get a comment/explanation what they are about. Just throwing the question 'like or not' don't help with the choice. Example the seed box: Don't know the suggestion so I wasn't sure how I should vote for it. :/
    Still awesome work, that hopefully show what little work the dev can put into if they have time after bigger updates etc.

    I can understand how some questions may be confusing. When we articulate suggestions for proper wording in the polls, we try to be as literal and direct as possible.

    In the FSN regarding a "farmers box", the suggestion was for a literal "box" to install in the garden, in which you could store seeds and interact with. I believe it was coupled with another idea that you should be able to interact with multiple farm fences if those fences were within range of each other.

    We break down multiple points of ideas, when feasible to do so, in hopes that even if one aspect may not succeed, perhaps another one will thereby opening the door...or to use an anology, if we can "put a wedge in a crack, we might open it a little at a time, versus failing to just bust right on through"

    That's okay, but for the box I asked me: Is it an addition or is it an replacement? So would it be just something like the equipments for the chars/ship, or would it take away a slot from the fence(so instead of 7 plants you could only plant 6+having that box)???

    Savage Rift doesn't need a tutorial, it needs to be replaced with content that isn't based on hunting and node fort mechanics. BDO has such beautiful combat and the only instanced content we have is a boring hunting minigame with flame towers. Just terrible from every angle you could call it so.

    i fine with the grapple idea but not all grabs are the same, some classes have ignore grapple resist on their grab skill, and some dont, if they will go with this change they will have to make all grabs the same, before this change goes into effect.
    And on some classe they get locked in animation even if they fail the grab and some dont.

    You'll have far more luck if you put a price tag against half of these suggestions.

    They'll implement anything that can generate them extra money. Kash-Cow is not in it for the players, but I applaud your efforts anyway. At least somebody is putting in the effort to gather feedback - the paid employees weren't bothering too after all.

    Personally I think swimming needs a massive improvement.
    Jumping off your horse wile jogging or sprinting makes you instantly run if holding direction keys - needs to be walking so we can turn properly.
    Getting off horse while jogging or sprinting automatically gets main weapon out - needs to not get weapon out as it slows running speed.
    Items descriptions need to say exactly what to do with it ie combine 3 of these to make a scroll - not gather some of these and something might happen.
    I did not see any problem with the low level trash loot/collectibles/silver and weight was not a problem. New system gives way less drops and way less cash on low level trash loot.
