And please use a proper Subject Line !
My Suggestions, a suggestion or new idea are very bad subjects.
Maybe someday somebody wants to search some suggestion ...

Don't wonder if you don't get any feedback,
you can try to look in Josefs todo list: http://www.tt-forums.net/viewtopic.php?t=4641

And I would like to add (for the millionth time for older members)

This game was made in the age of assembler and small computers
That's the reason why it has so many limits and why it is so hard to change something

Those that want to change it are all doing it for free in their leisure time
They do it because they love this game so much

Before you post a suggestion, check if it's on the to-do list, on the impossible list or at least look if it's already been asked
I know, a search is hard and I don't do it always myself, but try

When you post a suggestion, the developpers will read it, if they don't respond, then it's not getting implemented

For your fun, just look in the to-do list and imagine how many months all of that will take :wink:

Please try to use proper style when suggesting something.

Remember, we're doing this for free, in our spare time. This means we're doing you a favor if we implement the feature you asked. Don't command us (i.e. "Do feature FOO"), we don't have to do anything you want us do. Using the word "please" helps a lot in this case ;)

Similarly, don't say things like "Why don't we have feature FOO?". The correct answer is: "Because no one has coded it yet". This suggests we should have read your mind and implement your wish before you even mention you'd like it. Try asking us to do it instead.

If you ask for a feature nicely ("I'd like to have...", "Could you do..", "It would be nice to have...", etc.), you have a higher chance that a dev will like the idea, and the replies will usually be nicer as well. If you're rude to people, they will have no reason to reply nicely.
Reality is that which, when you stop believing in it, doesn't go away.—Philip K. Dick
