- Many times players will comb through the suggestion forum to see how a suggestion is progressing, but to their let down, they find no activity, no indication that the suggestion is even on the radar of forum moderator. A colour coded system will give indicators for players that the suggestion is moving through the proper channels.
Such as having a certain colour for the Stars in front of each suggestions to indicate the status of the suggestion.
- When a suggestion is brought forward as a new topic, have the moderator change the color to white. White indicates the suggestion has been viewed by moderator. After a series of discussions and the moderator views the suggestion has merit, then change the colour to blue. When the suggestion becomes further refined with discussion and the moderator is ready to approve the suggestion, then the color changes to green. Green means go.
Conversely, after a moderator views a suggestion and changes to color white, but thinks the idea has no or little value or not heading in right direction, then the colour is yellow. After further discussion , if the suggestions can't be improved or saved, then the colour changes to red and moved to rejected folder.
How this will benefit the site and/or other comments:
- Currently players are Replying to suggestions that are good suggestions, but are finding them towards the bottom of the page and they'll add +1 to reactivate the suggestion. Then another player will write +2, then another writes +3 & another replies +4. The players are implicitly saying "what is being done with this good suggestion?". Some have explicitly said "What is the status?". This color coding system is a step to solve this & provide information to improve suggestions forum which is to improve this site.
