Recommend explicitly stating in the Dnsl whether or not hypothetical discussion of Dnsl items is permitted in Forge Hall.

Otherwise looks good. Thanks.

Talk has always been beneficial.
You feel you don't want to vote on it - ok, don't vote, but let us talk
It looks like censorship

"Do Not Suggest" means do not propose to Inno (and it might be a good idea to state that explicitly to reduce snarky posts) . So keep it out of the Proposals section, take it to Forge Hall or Questions.

Taking the two proposal updates together, it appears that there are now fewer things that are allowed for submission, but these things are also easier to submit due to relaxed requirements for format. So it's likely that, at least for a time, there will be a lot less 'not in proper format' posts and a lot more 'this is on the DNSL' posts.

The DNSL is for proposals. Forbidding discussion of DNSL items would have to be covered in the Forum Rules...but I don't see that happening.

Talk is what Forge Hall is for. This covers the Proposals section only. Feel free to talk...within the Forum Rules.

Right. Now gp back and reread my post. I say I want an explkicit statement whether its OK or not.

Historically whenever anyone has brought up Dnsl stuff on Forge Hall posters have dismissed the topic with 'That's Dnsl!'.

So why not squelch that all too frequent objection now by explicitly saying in the Dnsl that it's OK to discuss Dnsl items in Forge Hall?

Otherwise you know certain posters will object every time they see someone talking about Dnsl stuff in Forge Ha;, then object more when mods tell them it;s OK inevitably leading to editing and deleting of posts and whining and sniveling endlessy about getting posts edited and deleted.

Well, you know, now that we've put every conceivable item on the DNSL, I'll have a lot of free time on my hands. What better way to spend it than deleting and editing posts in Forge Hall? I mean, if we get the Forum so it can run itself, I'll be out of a job! ;)

but as far as how I feel about it, pretty much everything I have proposed is on there XD. If you happen to come across an old proposal of mine that violates the new DNSL, feel free to close it. For example, the trading units proposal.

I think that deciding whether something is DNSL should be the moderator's job, and anyone else posting such nonsense should be warned for pretending to be a moderator. (And the offending post deleted, of course.)

Damn..I was just about to propose a new GB that would rotate, strengthen your units and provide diamonds while negating pvp attack and lengthening the fp bar by 10 for every level. Great idea, too...I would have put that badboy up for voting immediately...aww, well, such is life in FoE....
99% sure that was sarcastic but if it wasn't pls kill me
