Suggest What We Should Do - Development Update
« on: 23 Jan 2016, 15:39:32 »

As you are probably aware: for quite sometime now we've had a lot of different plans going at once. It has lead to some delays in the development as the work has been spread out rather than focusing on one project to completion. We've had lots of great suggestions and bugs reported to us and we plan to implement/fix a large number of them. Sadly because of how we operate I'm the only person available to directly develop these changes for Noobstown and as a result they're likely to take time to be slowly added. It is because of this delay that I've created a new feature for you to let us (mainly me, but the rest of the team too) know which of things you'd like to see sooner!

By visiting www.noobscraft.com/work and voting on things you can let me and the rest of the team know what work items you'd actually like to see sooner and also things which aren't quite as important for now. The plan is for me to work on things which are higher up the list until they're complete and then slowly work down; as things get completed they'll be removed from this list.

When you visit the page it might seem quite confusing but it's really quite simple. Each possible work item is listed on the page (ordered by items you've not voted on first, then by the current score it has). Clicking on the item will expand it to view the full description as well as any details about it. To the left of each item is an option for you to vote that item up or down:

It will expand the up/down arrow to allow you to pick whether you want to give between +3 and -3 to the score. Your choice of score should be based on whether you'd like to see it being worked on sooner or later (Not based on whether you agree with the idea, everything listed is definitely coming it's just a matter of time), so if you want to see it sooner give it a positive amount and then items which can wait longer give a lower amount.

You might think just giving everything the maximum or same amount is going to speed things up, but that's not going to help, if you do so you'll effectively be wasting your votes; I can only work on one thing at a time so just voting everything up or down won't effect the order. Try to give items a mix of points depending on what you'd honestly like to come sooner.

You're free to change your vote at any time so don't worry about that. Plus the score will never go below 0; so if you give it a negative amount that will simply negate any positive points which might be added in the future if it's below 0. If you want to see the order of the items update after you've voted simply reload the page.

As more suggestions come in I'll be adjusting the list as well as posting updates here and directly to the work items on that page, so be sure to keep checking it for updates. For now if you've suggested something or reported something which we agreed would be added and don't see it listed please let me know and I'll add it to the list. Some items have been merged together since they're quite small so be aware of that too.

If there is anything you don't quite understand listed on the page or how it works please just ask and I'll adjust the wording or explain it again.

The link again is: www.noobscraft.com/work.

We look forward to your feedback,
- The Noobscraft Team

I think this is one of those things people might not realize they can vote on! Bumping so that people know they can influence what is worked on!!

New things have been added and others changed, so seemed like a good thing to point out, to newer players especially who haven't voted on these things yet. :D
