I think once there is a set method for writing up the suggestion which forces members to think before they post, it would eliminate some suggestions that are just though of on the spot with no clear deep thought about the matter. For example If to create a suggestion thread the user MUST follow the proper format
Type of suggestion: (item balance, gameflow, hero remake etc..)
Target player base: (more for pub players, more for competitive players, all)
Pros: (benefits, short and long term)
Cons: (ramifications short and long term)
Feasability: (it can work great because
Thats not the format i'm proposing, just an example of the need for one. This will force users to think more about what they type, filtering out extrememly low-level quality posts.
The next step is to have a chosen team of moderators go through and comment on the suggestions so to eliminate more low-level posts.
But what i think will be great is that if Icefrog or an admin can give each thread a comment on whether or not it is feasible. This way the admins don't have to go through every single suggestions thread. But it will eliminate the argument of opinion and objectivity between moderators and users.
Lets say for argument sake, three moderators comment on a suggestion, one thinks it's feasable, one thinks it's awesome and one thinks it's rubbish. To completely eradicate opinionated objections, an admin should give his expert explanation as to why or why not it just isn't feasable. In the end, the sole decission really is Icefrogs and i know we're going to run into a lot of instances where suggestions will be on both sides of praise and disregard.
Imo, the admins have to play a big role in managing this section
