The current system is FAR from perfect and batting your little girly eyelashes, calling everyone down about it, isn't making the system better. It just makes you an *******. Congrats.
The point is the topic is brought up numerous times per day, the idea is always shot down as bad because it's full of numerous, numerous problems, and yet another handful of people will create their own set threads dealing with this identical topic.
Half of the posts are the original post trying to explain why his idea is good, and the other half are from various other people explaining all the various reasons why the idea simply does not work. And most of the original posters in these threads will either admit ignorance to the existence of other threads on the topic or will even outright say "I'm sure there are other threads on this topic, but..."
And those of us who see all these reasons why the idea is really, really bad and has a lot of really obvious flaws are getting tired of reposting the same stuff over and over.
So now, instead of the conversation being spread across numerous threads per day, everyone who opens one of these threads gets a link back to this thread where the information has all been consolidated into one place. They can read through all the points and counterpoints that would've been made in their thread, and if they think they have something original, they can add to the discussion, but the fact of the matter is, when a new thread is created, we're not adding to the discussion. We're just catching another person up on the long discussion that's happened over and over numerous times already.
Snort, you idea at least ADDS to the discussion, and I (along with others) would be willing to discuss the pros and cons of your discussion here, in this thread, but we REALLY don't need yet ANOTHER thread on basically the same idea, do we? Do we really?!
And look, if any idea that all of us can agree is solid and flawless comes out of this discussion, one of my three posts at the top of the thread will be edited to include that idea so that Riot can see it and perhaps we can get a change.
But I'll guarantee you this, opening another 5 new threads tomorrow, and 5 more the day after that, and another 5 the next day, and these all die out over and over again? That's not the way to get the attention of a Red.
