Such analysis made available to the CC community can help people who have suggestions to make check if those suggestions, OR something in the neighborhood, have been suggested before, and rejected. They can then either forget the idea OR frame it better, dealing with the reasons why suggestions of this type have been rejected
At another level the CC community and the new owners/administrators can come together to be inspired to talk about possible changes. . Maybe the reasons a suggestion was rejected in the past no longer applies, the technical hurdles have been overcome. Or maybe we can see a variant of the suggestions is doable and desirable.
No quarrel with anyone but some of what I am talking about can apply to to the suggestion of" New style of spoils bonuses - Risky Spoils viewtopic.php?f=4&t=181395.
At one level it can help avoid the reaction of "Suggested b4." At the other level, If there have been many suggestions of changes to the spoils system, not necessarily "risky spoils" but suggestions in the neighbourhood, let's talk. Maybe many of the suggested changes have been not doable for technical reasons but some variant is now possible. Was there a sense that the suggested changes were too much work for too little reward, that few Cc'ers want the changes or would benefit from them? Let's talk, maybe times have changed and some variant is doable and desirable.
This leads to some of the suggested changes how suggestions are handled in the future. People who have suggestions to make should first check out, or be directed to. the cluster analysis to address the issues found there. So if someone has an idea for changes to the spoils system they look at the analysis of suggested changes in the past and address that. Rather than discourage people making suggestions, where the most likely response will be " suggested b4" " this can inspire people to make suggestions with some good foundation- " I see many suggestions to the spoils system have been made and rejected, how about this variant?" Then we can have a good conversation about change.

off the top of my head
1. game suggestions
2. player suggestions
3. interface suggestions
there are probably more, but I can't think of them right now .
This is something that has been discussed in the past, and I promise the idea hasn't been forgotten about. No promises about whether it will happen soon, though. The main problem is -- will the subforums justify their usage? If we split off into four subforums, I worry that they'll all die from inactivity.
Perhaps Topic Icons can be used similar to the Foundry and Create/Join Tourney pages... That'll keep them all in the same forum but will allow for someone to easily pick out the different types of suggestions.
Yes, that's something we've been discussing recently. It's the solution I would like to see implemented; it just requires coordination with the webmaster and the tech team to see how easy it would be to implement for us. We'll be keeping in touch regarding this.
