please add option for players to simply click "support", "don't support", or "neutral" on forum posts and display that statistic in the forum list with the post title. This will allow players to support a suggestion without needing to comment, and allow mods to quickly identify interest.
They had a system like this called RuneLabs; it failed spectacularly.
Guess why that was.This is what people aren't getting. Some ******* "coder" releases OSBuddy or some other "helper client", people get hyped because they're stupid like sheep, and then down the road once the "helper client" has a ton of downloads he releases an "update" to hijack everyone.
Hence why I suggested changing the minimum forum requirements. To end alt abuse, so ideas like this one can be given more credit than assuming something that happened in the past will just happen again.
People need more creativity in moving towards the future and more credibility in their posting. If you allow alts to rule these forums, nothing will ever get accurate support whether voted on a tool or not, I recommend the tool suggested, as many others, including myself, have suggested before.
The votes will be the same regardless, only this way it's kept on display on one page instead of scattered on 200 pages.
Your opinions here can affect us all. Please post for the better
Original message details are unavailable. They had a system like this called RuneLabs; it failed spectacularly.
Guess why that was.
Because they created a whole new section of the site that provided less dialogue than the existing suggestions forums?
A support system for the forums would be nice. It is a supplement to dialogue, not a replacement for it, which is the fatal flaw of RuneLabs. It was a popularity contest instead of a discussion. That's why the forums would work much better with this idea.
The players could still make comments. The advantage of poll numbers attached to posts is that it just might identify highly supported ideas to admin. The polls Jagex has created, in my opinion are generally between choices no one cares about, or a minor adjustment on something Jagex has already decided to do. A bit like offering a child a choice between a handful of California kale or European kale on Halloween.
