    Today, I finally submitted an idea that I had been building on for some time. In the past, I had shared this idea with other players, and although they thought the ideas sounded good, they didn't feel that the developers would bother listening. This was somewhat disconcerting because I was getting this response quite a bit from players, so I decided to add to it over time until I had something compelling enough to get their attention. Today, I e-mailed my idea to Calvin Crowner and I received a very positive and encouraging response. As my list was quite lengthy, he assured me that he would read it thoroughly and see what sort of ideas they could steal from me. This made me immensely happy, and I wish I had done it sooner.
     
  2. You sure he actually gave you a personal response? Knowing them, it's a canned response to all emails sent their way.

    BTW, what is this great idea?

    It wasn't a canned response in any way. My submission in summary was requesting tools to facilitate players being able to entertain other players.

    In my opinion you're better off not throwing out your ideas to the forum sharks to dissect and eat up. If the devs liked the idea leave it at that and hope it comes to fruition.

    I won't say something negative here, my feelings are known. I really do hope he reads what you had to say and uses it if it was in fact well thought out material.

    I just want to point out to hold back your joy till he actually does read it. Skimming doesn't count. Nonetheless, keep us updated.

    I did the same thing years ago...when GD's first came out.

    I thought it would be cool if every pet was Branded with the name of the Tamer and the Date he tamed it.

    The Dev loved the idea and we exchanged several emails...alas it never came to be.

    IMHO it would have boosted Taming and started a a new series of rares, as time went buy it was my hope that certain tamers pets would have become valuable.

    I joked with the Dev, imagine people posting...Selling Blaze CU, Tamed 2/13/2005 by Mook.

    Woot!

    Not to burst your bubble, but did you misplace your diary? I mean it's great you had a private convo with Cal, but why should we really care if you are going to leave us with such vague information? lol.

    Eh, as long as it isn't more cat statues or deco ideas.

    Cal did the same thing with me in regards to an issue I had with Siege Perilous

    After a few messages back and forth and checking with a developer he got me an answer. Wasn't the answer I wanted but on a personal level I certainly appreciated the Customer Service I recieved :thumbup1::thumbup1:
