But there's no reason why we can't have small incremental improvements to the basic game even while we know that those alone won't fix what ails the site. To say that another reinforcement option won't save the site and therefore should be avoided, is a bit like saying that brushing your teeth won't cure liver cancer and therefore you should stop brushing your teeth while you wait for your surgery. In fact, the opposite is true: people who continue to try to improve their lives in small ways while waiting for life-saving surgery are the ones who are more likely to pull through. Giving up and saying "none of this matters anyway" becomes a self-fulfilling prophesy.
Thank you! I do not believe that this change would save the site. That would be ridiculous. Dukasaur, you captured how I feel about the naysayers on this thread that there is no reason to implement changes that are similar to this one. There is! Improve the game for those who do not leave.
