Board Cleanup / New Rules

Recommended Posts

Due to the huge amount of suggestions in the suggestion board we have cleaned it up and implemented the following procedure for all open suggestions:

 

  • All suggestions will be looked at regularly and can be dismissed if two developers vote for dismissal, it has been in the suggestions forum for a week and no developer has approved the suggestion.
  • Titles of suggestions will be edited to reflect their status: "[1 Dismissal]" indicates that the thread has received one vote of dismissal. "[2; Bin {INSERT DATE HERE}]" indicates that the thread has recieved two votes of dismissal, but the safety period of one week as outlined above has not yet expired. The date will mark when the thread will be binned. This allows for other developers to voice their disapproval. These tags are solely for the benefit of maintainers - do not edit them yourselves.
  • All current suggestions will be talked about at a developer meeting and dismissed if no developer is assigned to it.

 

The Suggestions and Ideas Sub-Forum also comes with changed rules:

  • One Suggestion per Topic
  • Make sure your suggestion has not been suggested before. (Search the Suggestions Sub-Forum)
  • Do not title the topic in all capitals.
  • Do not respond to idea's with gif's, +1/-1 provide reasons on why you like an idea or not.
  • Do not derail the topic
  • Read the whole topic before you post in it. (Yes, that means all of it)
  • The usual forum rules still apply here.
  • Developers will delete all posts that violate any of these rules or are not contributing to the discussion in a suggestion.
  • The reasoning behind a suggestion should be elaborated upon in the initial post to a reasonable extent.

For the sake of clarification, real quick.

All current suggestions will be talked about at a developer meeting and dismissed if no developer is willing to work on it.

 

This isn't only developer will based. They will still get assigned projects they don't personally agree with, if the project is deemed as befitting and worth carrying out. So no need to fear a developer dictatorship based on however our mood swings on that specific day.

Rules updated:

Titles of suggestions will be edited to reflect their status: "[1 Dismissal]" indicates that the thread has recieved one vote of dismissal. "[2; Bin {INSERT DATE HERE}]" indicates that the thread has recieved two votes of dismissal, but the safety period of one week as outlined above has not yet expired. The date will mark when the thread will be binned. This allows for other developers to voice their disapproval. These tags are solely for the benefit of maintainers - do not edit them yourselves.

Added a rule:

The reasoning behind a suggestion should be elaborated upon in the initial post to a reasonable extent.


This is mostly to avoid the pointless trail of comments that follow from an unexplained suggestion asking for the explanation.
