Glad to see more transparency about the development process. I have a few thoughts about some of the options, though.

Bounty Hunter closure and reward redistribution...
I think you're being a bit too hasty with this. Players offered feedback on changes to this (and Deathmattch) on launch and a while after, such as changing the death system in the Wilderness to use a Death's Office system (letting players use armour to match weapon tiers and making fights fairer without risking 100m) and it was all totally ignored. I think it would be worth exploring some of the smaller changes such as this and trying them out before just hitting it with the delete hammer.

Elite Hunter creatures –... (working with others might also increase chance of capture)
Clan boss – A boss so gargantuan and difficult to defeat that no individual could take it down.
Have you not learned yet that forced-multiplayer isn't popular?

Trimmed Skill/Combat Pets - The ability to trim your skill pet. This could be through a miniquest that tasks you with completing skill feats with your pet in tow, or to gain the pet for a second time (we would poll which of the two options is preferred).
I realise it's hard to clarify which you would do without seeing if it is popular, but at the same time I think the two different options needed to both be polled separately from the start. I didn't vote for this specifically because I fear the second option would win (which I REALLY do not want), but I'd happily go for the first option.

Aura rework: bring down prices and gain currency from logging in...
Challenge improvements: parity across challenges & reduce Dailyscape

These really don't go far enough to address the core issues. Auras are too powerful full stop. Dailies are OP and should be given randomly while skilling.
