One of the reasons I do ask for specific things is that news about 2.0, as well, surfaces and is buried quickly on the official boards. Some of your issues may already have been mentioned or regarded, and you giving a list give me a laundry list of things to display on the official boards that I can be like. "Hey, nice progress, but what about these. These are things that people outside the game are waiting on."
SE's generic "We are looking into doing something with [insert game mechanic here]" does nothing for me Hyrist. I have very little faith in words for reasons I have already explained. The actual proof I saw in the game footage from Gamescom is all that I would accept as progress. If Yoshi had come out and stated that you could interact with the interface as I mentioned above, I would not have believed him until I had seen it. Just how it works with me.
I really believe that they have all of the feedback they need regarding the core of the game and what needs to be addressed there. If they keep on considering this feedback in their design decisions like they did in the example above, they may very well have a great game in the making.
