so post it again, as Haggan instructed. Something happened to your thread that it got nuked.

I think there's something else at work here. A lot of my threads are disappearing mysteriously as well. New threads. I don't believe it to have been nuked though. Nothing within those threads would have warranted a nuke. A lot of them are in the same vein as the threads I created that haven't been nuked.

Moreover, I had an additive post commenting on ninaru's latest TP screenshot and it mysteriously disappeared as well. Funny though that it was a post that I made in succession to the new threads I lost. Some threads I posted several minutes down the road stayed though.

Might I suggest allowing the search function for non-premium members in this forum only? This could go a long way toward reducing repeat topics because many people simply do not have access to the search function, and therefore don't see that the topic they are about to create has been addressed already on page 5 :\

With the other, less-moderated forums, this is less of an issue because repetetive posts/threads are not nuked like they are here. I have spent the last 30 minutes looking for a thread I posted in previously about chat filters because I wanted to add something to the discussion (namely pets and summons getting filtered out by "other"), but now I cannot find this thread again.

Also, is there any way for the SE people to give us some feedback on our suggestions? It's great that we are able to post here and have our suggestions heard, but I think it would be even better if SE could tell us what they like or don't like about our suggestions, and/or let us know what kind of input they are looking for.

Also, I wanted to say thanks and kudos to Allakazham for this forum. Hopefully it will continue to mature, and I am hoping to see some of my suggestions implemented in future updates <^_^>

Because its not easy to nuke 100+ bump threads. If the topic was a good one, just recreate it, and tell people to rate instead of bump.


So you prefer to through the baby out with the bathwater before Square-Enix even sees it? For those of us who post without making backups of the material then have it deleted then have try to put it back up then get it deleted because it was "discussed before" makes no sense to me whatsoever. I moderate a couple of forums myself (not Final Fantasy) and we have a few options at our disposal - merging multiple threads, deleting troll posts (and editing the attacks on the troll to keep the topic of the thread still active), etc.

In the system you created, perfectly legitimate posts are deleted after careful consideration of your rules and guidelines only to be penalized for the actions of very few who decide not to follow the rules. Why penalize the ones that are abiding by the rules by throwing out the suggestions?

I'm concerned mostly because at this point this is the only way that I can think of to talk to others about my ideas to see if they basically stink or not and hopefully be read by S-E to see if it's legitimate enough to be included in future expansions and/or updates. By destroying the discussion after people have made their remarks (good bad or indifferent) you are basically destroying the idea of which you are trying to promote. The idea being having a healthy discussion of things that we think S-E might consider adding/amending to the game. Also by straight deleting a topic without giving a reason for it you create a problem of not describing what transgression the person made (was the topic repeated, did someone bump it, was the topic ludicrous) and you force people to then make a decision to relist the topic to find out that it didn't fit with the criteria that you apparently have and we don't know.

Why not auto-lock every single post so that dumbass trolls can't turn a good suggestion thread into a flame war?

Also, if people can't respond, they'll rate.

Because more often than not, an original idea can be improved/refined after an intelligent discussion. We're not all trolls here...

Heres an idea...

The thought behind this forum is great. A means of communicating with the Devs. But the theory isnt doing so well when faced with ugly Ms. Reality...

Figure I might as well throw out an idea of my own to help alleviate this.

Create yet another forum. This forum would be about discussing ideas specifically meant for Devs to see. Sure we can already do this in general chat, but threads get lost too much...

This new forum would be specifically for discussing ideas. SOmeone posts up their thoughts, gets feedback (and probably flames) from other players, and everyone can argue to their hearts content. After its been worked out a little, a formal post could be written up and submitted to the Developers Chat Room. These threads would not be posted in the room till evaluated by the mods here (not for wether they think the idea is good or not, simply for... professional look.) Anything posted to the Dev Forum should be well thought out, and be concise and POLITE in its tone.

Even a complaint or rant can be written in a manner that is constructive.

These posts would then be locked somehow in the DEV room, so that Devs could respond, but we could not. THe only option we would have would be to rate up or down the posts, so the DEV know which ones we think are important... Perhaps also include a link in each post, so if the DEVs WANT to see the dirty details that went into making it, they could.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Something needs to be done though. If I were a dev, I know I would be daunted after reading some of these posts. Might even be tempted to say "Well, it was a good idea, but I think we should just give up on this feedback thing..."

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Likewise, I feel that some sort of discussion does need to occur for these posts. And it really is a shame to delete perfectly viable threads for a few flamers posts. Most people dont keep backup of their posts to repost them... I understand that soon you will be moving them instead of deleting them. Might just be a better idea to shut this forum down till all the safeguards are in place for it. I think 2 seperate forums though, one for rough draft and one for finals, would solve alot of the problems.

wow that's actually a pretty good idea...the current forums are more of a "heres my idea, help me work out the kinks" and then if they made a forum that only finished products went into, that'd be most efficient for finding good ideas. Allowing everyone to rate, but no one to post but the devs is a brilliant idea. in my opinion, this is the best route.

all threads posted in this forum not approved by moderators would be blasted.

I dont understand some really great ideas have been rated down or nuked by the admins that people who liked the idea post it again but do so very vaguely. The problem is nobody wants to type the same post over again that they spent 3 hours writing just to get it nuked again, so people are reposting the ideas but they are just coming out half assed and plain boring.

The system should allow people to give back there input on a thread and allow bumping. If a post has a rating of 5.00 but no responses and another post has a rating of 5.00 and 7 pages of people saying nice job what idea is SE gonna look at maybe even implement.

Excellent idea!!! Definite rate up! It may be a bit hard to pull off, but if it is done correctly as you suggest, it would go a looooong way towards cleaning up this forum. Again, I would also like to stress the fact that feedback from SE DEVs would be a great thing to see. It's great that we are getting a place to voice our opinions, but there is no way to really tell how well we are being heard. Also, feedback from SE would help us to give SE more useful suggestions.

Off topic, I don't quite understand why my previous post got rated down... but it looks like just about every post in the thread got rated down. *sniff sniff* Smells like trolls

I created a thread with links to (from my point of view) constructive and original threads.
I was hoping this would help a bit with reducing the number of repeating threads but it's at page 4-5 now and nobody looks at it.

The thread can be found here: Bring order to chaos

Maybe you could sticky it. (and delete "bad" posts)

Noting this thread, it is becoming more and more tumultuous as time passes. In a mere week, it has now had more threads in it, than 8 of the various Job Forums, and Quest and Mission Discussion, and the 5 Race forums combined together...

Thats over 6 MONTHS of posts, that have been eclipsed in a single week. Without sorting, or sub forums, or sometype of order to this, this spot is going to be nothing more than an over crowded Venting ground on perceived wrongs in the game. Regardless of how valid or invalid a topic may be, all will likely be ignored equally. No dev is going to ever look through 1000 posts one by one, because by the time they are done, they have another 200 to contend with, if it only took them a day or two...

In order to have this forum work, it needs to have some organization to it. While in theory, deleting bumps may seem good, it only clutters this up more. Ratings make no difference, because this forum does not have unique rating system. If someone is rated down on another part of this forum due to loudmouthing against one or two particular people, and then posts a constructive discussion here, it will be filtered out due to low rating. Likewise, if someone with a high rating posts random rehtoric, it results in it having higher light, even though the post may be worthless or simply say "Add more monsters in Gustaburg."

Don't bump posts, but remove duplicate posts. Make each thread a discussion where others that have the same idea can expand or refine the idea. 95 posts that say vaguely the same thing is worthless, 1 post that has 90 threads that refines the idea into a workable solution, or realization that the idea is either not needed or impossible to impliment has merrits.

Another thing.
Mayber you could delete all the threads that have a title that doesn't say what's the thread about and all that don't have anything to do with new ideas from time to time.
Only rating down doesn't seem to work well.

I agree with many other members that a new forum section should be implemented where we can't start new threads but only add our thoughts to existing threads you grab from this mess and put there.

EDIT:
A very good thing would be to make the search function avaliable to everyone. I don't understand why this is a premium feature.
Every forum has a search function. It's there to help to get a good forum without 100 threads about one and the same thing.


Thx.

All I want is to be able to transfer my characters to another PS2!

That's it! Why isn't this available?

I had originally gotten the game for myself and my GF took an interest in it. (I was shocked to say the least) She started playing whenever I wasn't on and then began cutting into my playtime. As the more busy of the two, she had many more oppurtunites to get on than I. I had been planning on getting her a PS2 and copy of the game for her birthday while she was still in the low levels. Unfortunately, my department was eliminated from the company I worked for and money got tight. Her only request for her b-day was to be allowed to stay on as the primary player of that PS2. I had to give her something...

So eventually I got a job and got another PS2 and copy of the game for myself. I tried starting over, but hated that. I tried focusing on crafting at first, but with the influx of the PS2 players and many more new players coming in and trying to start crafting, along with my world's black hole economy, this too proved to be a bust. She tried starting a new character to play along with me and she hated that. Eventually she had surpassed my character and only wants to play on her main to try to catch up with her friends and she resents the time she wasted trying to level up a character with me where she only has one job up to lvl 50 on her main and all her friends have at least 2 jobs that are lvl 60.

The same with me, my old main character had already accomplished so much and my friends have all left me far behind in the dust. On this character, I already have all my jobs, I have done all but 3 quests in my home nation, I have a good many of the others done, and I'm just one stupid tower from rank 4. I've just done too much on my main.

I love that there are new characters coming in, but most of the time it is a pain to play with them. I hate that I'm missing out on all the high level stuff and that I can't level and play with my friends anymore.

It's just not fun on the second go around for me.

I still get to see a lot of cool stuff, but most of my playing is 3rd person because I'm explaining and telling my GF what to do when she gets stuck, some of the more advanced Magic bursts & skill chains, and researching what neither of us know.

We've tried sharing and thought we had a good share schedule going on because we keep different hours.

I don't fret about it when I can't get on, but I miss the freedom of being able to get on my own character anytime I want for as long or as short of a time as I want.

Today, I decided to erase my mules and my "replacement mains" except for one that I can play around with and craft. I now only have two characters. My old main I get to play with very seldom and my crafting mule, both on 2 different PS2's. I also decided to erase my crafting mule by the time the expansion comes out if SE doesn't create something/update the game so you can transfer your characters.

My girlfriend will be transferring to a new college and will be living on campus there and plans on taking her PS2 with her. If by that time SE has not done something after the expansion is out, I will then delete my last and final char unless my GF decides she wants to play as a Galka for some strange reason. After that, I will never return to FFXI, but may move on to a new game like WoW or EQ2 or whatever... I might even decide never to play another MMORPG ever again, too much time involved too easily thrown away.

Well, that's a long extension on the one simple request I had. ^^

*Edited this and reposted it here, hoping Square Enix might get a chance to look at this. If this has already been posted before or if I should've left it in the main forum, I apologize.*

Whomever at Allakhazam is working with Square-Enix on this, could you ask them to post some form of monthly reply? It doesn't need to be detailed, we'd just like to see:

[Ideas that will never be implemented]:
[Ideas that we'd like to implement but cannot at the present time]:
[Ideas which have been passed on for further review]:
[Ideas that have a very good chance of being implemented]:

They don't even need to comment on any of them, just make a list in a sticky'd thread so we know what to and not to post and if our ideas are getting anywhere.

Thanks.

I can't be the only person who has done this... You buy the game, install it.. and ofcourse keep the little booklet to look at all the new stuff, and tips on how to play, cus your still a noob. Well, a while later, you get the strategy guide, cus your really getting into this game. A few days after that, you see your little FFXI booklit *with your registration codes in it, not comprehending that you'll need them later maybe* and you just toss it in the trash can... Hey you have the strategy guide.. you'll never need that little book again right? WRONG. I went to make another content ID so I could have a second character today... and guess what I need in order to make another one? Ah, ofcourse, my registration code in the little book I tossed in the trash can... So... me being the determined person I am, call a GM in the service and support section of Play Online... And What do they say? "Play Online has a Policy for us not to release any registration codes under any circumstance..."...

Why? I just don't understand that... If I'm on my account... *So I can't be trying to steal anything because I'm already ON the account... If I was going to try to steal somebody's account and I'm talking to the GM on it... I've already accomplished my goal.. So I wouldn't be talkign to them..* Why can't they just look and find my registration code for me and spit it back to me, which in turn will make them alot more money, because I can't be the only person who has done this...

So, this post is not to go off on POL at all, because I realize, this is my fault this whole thing has happened... And if I wouldn't have done this, I'd probably look at myself and say, *You dumb a$$, it's says in the book to SAVE THESE CODES, so why would you throw them away?* but it is me that's done it... so I'm on a suggestion forum, trying to get something changed to help all the people in the world, who have made this same problem. I'm also helping POL by doing this, because you'll get alot more people purchasing extra content ID's.

That's it for me, let me know whatcha think. :D Also, I realize I made my own thread on this, but that one is directed more towards players, and what they think about it. This is for *hopefully developers* to look at, and understand, and hopefully alter their rules on how they handle things like this. :)

could we have more Real mini games? not like just talking to a npc and getting text but say go up to a randomly generated ??? and get step up and win 10,000g!
also need a safer system for ppl to gamble, it here and people like doing it so lets make it safe?
also red mages only get thunder 3 at level 75.... isnt this the pinnacle of any job? why do we get a blm spell when we are rdm?
shouldnt we get a high end rdm spell?
i.e.
dispelaga refreshra, gravityaga,
and are demi, en-dia, en-bio, ever going to be spells?
i also feel the current pvp system is silly as it requires too much set up...... the idea of fighting you freinds for no profit or exp would be better.... say you wanna just go and wrestle with your freind just for the fun of it?

wow illia, ur not L33t ><

just becuz something isnt grammatically defined its not important?! how dare u!, if u understand wut someone is saying, who cares how they say it? i think that u and others use grammar and spelling as a way to pick on ppl that u feel are weaker mentally. its not because u are soo ignorant that u cannot understand that u = u, i dont think thats the case, tho u might not have the phonetical adaptability that others might have, but that it would bother u so much that u would go out of ur way to destroy text that someone has takin the time and energy to write wut is on their mind, their feelings, or their observations, sickens me. as this is a forum for guests and members of allakhazam.com you might want to speak with the Leader or CEO about wut is and isnt allowed on a user based forum.

i kan maik awl the gramer airors i want, its called speaking phonetically and students of art and design colleges (2d/3d animators, game designers, and everything inbetween) are incouraged to pay attention and learn to write this way as it helps with the breakdown of words in the process of animating the mouths of characters and lining up audio tracks, if you have ever seen a dope sheet you will know wut i am talking about.

please everyone just stop with the grammatical nit-picking and rating down, go ahead and do it if ur a loser, but in real life u cant go around being a tattle-tale, less u wanna get ur *** beat.

the fact that anyone can rate anyone down, for no reason wutsoever should be a wake-up call to everyone to stop doing it. if ur rating affects your posts in any way, which they dont and if they do, well then somoene might wanna have a word with the Host of alla because i can create any number of free accounts, and then rate myself up endlesslesy, heck, u know wut? i think ill go do that right now ><

Not too bad a base idea. Although, I think we might want to go a step further.

First of all, we need some organization. There's a bit too much moaning, groaning, wild ideas, tweaks, job suggestions and such all tossed into one big heap at the moment that is this 1 forum. Splitting it into a discussion forum and formal suggestion forum is one step to clean up, but at least on the discussion side we need some more organization, perhaps something like this:

New Job Ideas
Existing Job Ideas
Quest/Mission related
Game Bugs/Weaknesses
Interface ideas
Other ideas

Each of these of course is dedicated to discussions on their particular topics. Plus, they may incur a few special rules for this (ie, in new job ideas, there is no point coming in there saying "they aren't going to add any new jobs so live with it" kinda of junk as that is just pointless).

As things get going, certain ones might get subdivided due to particular topics being very popular and coming up repeatedly.

Can I just make a suggestion for people who troll this board in order to "discuss" the suggestions?

When someone posts a suggestion or concern specifically aimed at SE and you think you'd like to respond to it, consider your addition carefully. Does it offer anything to the conversation? Is it referential to the specific topic of the original post? Do you believe your input to be anything the game developers will find relevant or useful?

If you choose to respond to the posts on this forum, realize that the original post was not directed at you and is not a request for advice or discussion. It is a suggestion directed at the game developers. Responding to posts with what amounts to, "You suck" makes us all look like a big pack of howler monkeys. Please think for a few seconds about what it is you're saying, where it's being posted, and who is going to see it before you hit the "submit" key.

Thank you.

1: Make Drks get less hate from their JAs and give a trait that helps with absorb spells.
2: Give Plds a damage accumalation move i.e. Pld take damage stores it for a certain period,then unleases the damage back 50-100%.
3: Give Drgs more attack and accuracy bonus.
4: Make it so that once you defeated a NM you can't claim it the next time.
5: Exchange the effects of stoneskin and phalanx.
6: Make the monoploization of guild products stop, somehow.
7: Make it so that harvesting/lumbering/mining in the same spot (not area) for a certain amount of time stop the point to spawn

I had some suggestions to make in this forum, but after reading this sticky I have decided not to. Why you may ask, well it is because of this really.....

Admins power tripping much??

Why waste my time to write something, only to have it nuked by someone less qualified than myself? Alla is becoming more and more like SE, in a sense that they do not care about the people using thier service.

That's all I have to say on the subject as I do not want to invest to much time in something that will most likely be rated into oblivion or deleted.

All i have to say is be considerate of other opinons and ideas, for example, i hate the fact that i have to log off the game complteley when playing FF11, in order to do something else in my computer, weather check anEmail, a PM, or print a document, basicly, Sqaure Enix, a computer is meant for multi tasking dont force to just play and not be allowed to do something else at once, alot of my freinds stop playing because of this, and trust mei dont wanan play "World of Warcraft" with them, so please do something about this.

Also, if you agree with a post, please rate it up. That lets someone look for ideas by rating.


Why not auto-lock every single post so that dumbass trolls can't turn a good suggestion thread into a flame war?

Also, if people can't respond, they'll rate.



Because more often than not, an original idea can be improved/refined after an intelligent discussion. We're not all trolls here...


So regauring this is it possiblle to give somesort of Personal Thread making capability to delet on our own threads. Flames and inapproriate posts. That way u don't have to go through and delete everyones threads and none of the good posts. Is that giving us (Thread Makers) too much power. Good ideas can be posted and flames can be deleted by the Thread Maker.

On a Different note wouyld it be possible for u to create a thing that will send us (Thread makers) a PM, so we know our thread was nuked or sent to a Better thread for SE review?

And on a PPS, why insult or "Pee in the wind" of your admins. Kinda makes them not wanna listen to any of us.

The whole gil mess can be fixed easily. Limit all numerics to 6 digits.
Thus the most a player may have, or an item may cost is 999,999.

After careful consideration of the matter, I have come to the conclusion that "Haggan, Mountain ... whatever", if he is truly one of the moderators, has the spelling and grammatical abilities of a 10 year old (or less).

That being said, if this is the quality of the people that IGE have brought in to filter these forums for SE's feedback, then we need to find another outlet. Go ahead Haggan, rate this down, and me too if you feel so inclined. But let it be said that the majority of the English speaking world can actually phrase and spell the following correctly (and this is only from one page!!):
"OK heres the deal, threads are being delted for various reason"
"one of them is they get to high in post count."
"and the bumping person rated down."
"Typing in caps will get your posted nuked quicker than Easy Mac. Except when I do it. Cause im cool."

This last one is mentiond because, according to your signature, you're not even a FFXI player, just some newb from another game that has no clue what we are even talking about! Do us all a favor - pay a bit more attention in English classes and a bit less attention to online games that you obviously know nothing about, much less participate in!

I was curious as to why my idea was deleted of what I thought to be a few valid new idea for a new expansion. The only reason I can think of would be a few of the replies being off topic but still that should not detract from the original idea. I agree w/ others in asking for a possible explanation when a post is deleted. Luckily I had saved everything before posting and I intend to seek another way in presenting this as not only was my post deleted but I was also rated down for reasons unknown to me.

I'm 0/8 on Maat after today's excursion. I would've won but because I was paralyzed I was interrupted when using my pro-ether. This was no biggie because I just figured I could keep him slept till Paralyze came off. I went to use it again and I get the "...A command error occurred." message. I looked in my inventory and it wasn't there. A friend in my linkshell reminded me after the fight that this also happens when you use a job ability but you are paralyzed instead, rather, the ability gets used without being used. To me the ability usage even when paralyzed makes sense, but why does it take my item? I implore you to look into this matter. Job abilities will come back around once the timer is done, but I think it's silly to take our hard-earned items away just because we were paralyzed when trying to use them. Thank you.



Sincerely,
Nyuji the Red Mage

They fact that you can get rated down on this forum, when you are trying to show your ideas to Square Enix is stupid. My ideas are for SE, not the socialistic users on this forum to decide if my thread is worthy of being viewed. As far as we know, SE may leave the filter system on default and won't be able to see sub-defaulted threads.

Either let us use the forum as it was intended (Showing ideas and opinions to SE) or don't bother with this kind of forum at all.

Nice to meet you.
I hear that there is the forum that an opinion can say and write in it.

There is always a thing concerned about both Great Sword and Weapon Skill.

Where had better I write in it at?

"This forum is for feedback and suggestions to the Square-Enix about things they can do to improve the game for you."

You deleted my post for what reason? Because I was jumping on SE about their inability to listen to the players? That, I'm pretty @#%#% sure, is feedback about things they can do to inprove the game. Whats the point in posting all of this crap if they dont listen to start with? To get if off of our chest? Yeah, and I know your response could be that, "This is a post that has been stated before", ummm, yeah, you think there is a reason for that? Maybe, and this is a big "Maybe" now, this is something that needs to be spammed until those idiots get the point? I mean, I dont know, maybe there is a reason people gather together in groups to protest? I doubt they would if it didnt work. I'm sure your going to delete this one too in order to save face, but whatever. Square Enix does not listen to what we have to say because anytime we critize them people like you silence us. So by all means, let the people of ZAM continue to post ideas that Square Enix ignores, I mean, after all we're the idiots right? This is ridiculous, ban me for this post, I just signed up yesterday anyway. Why the **** would I want to post on a website that says "give feedback to Square Enix" that chooses what feedback I can give? **** off.
