This would help us know what's going on atm, and if our ideas are put on the paper :) I put some ideas out there some time ago, and I wonder how they're moving towards completion :) Other idea-creators must wonder that from time-to-time too :) Just wondering, since you have a to-do list, maybe post and lock a thread about it? ^^

If you want to do this, I hope it's gonna be high on the to-do list, since it should be easy to do :)
Buuut, if you feel you are too busy, that's quite alright, it's just a suggestion after all :)

Matt has a "I'll be doing this when I get to it" list.

As far as I can remember, it includes:
  • Spoiler tags
  • Following threads
  • Notifications when you're quoted/a thread you're following is commented on
  • and so on

That's just off the top of my head though.

Yes, I'd want this too :) We could check on what is currently in the works, and can expect things to come. Kinda like a "Behind the scenes"-thread thingy. Matt, please add this ^^

There's a lot more than what Lugi could remember, but in the end, that thread is quite unnecessary. It will just create more work for Matt, and it won't change what he prioritizes mainly because the community shout out exactly what they want either way.

If it's just for curiosity's sake, is it worth the extra work? Remember that Matt is incredibly busy as it is.

Yeah, that's true, but it's just a copy/paste or something right? I mean, if it's so long, I don't think he keeps it in his head, especially since he's so busy :)

Idk where he keeps that list, but wouldn't it be interesting to see that your idea is actually on the list, because once you post an idea, you might not hear of it for half a year or something, since the list is long :) Seeing where your suggestion is in the work-process would really help :)

Our complete list of ideas, tasks, projects, is hundreds and hundreds of items long. Some of those items are tiny, some of them are massive. We put everything on that list, even things that we never plan on doing, and then we split it up into more manageable groupings.

We do not have an overall priority though. I can't just paste a priority list here as, it is kinda meaningless. We decide what to work on on the fly and rapidly change tack based on a number of factors. What's going on in the game, what's going on in the community, what are you guys excited about, what are you guys not excited about. Sometimes we base the decision purely on what WE want to build :)

So we weigh a lot of factors in deciding what to do and tend to have a number of things on the go at any given time. In fact there are several projects that are actually in the production code right now but not publicly visible, because they're not done yet, and several more that are simmering on our staging server.

I don't really want to get people's hopes up on different projects because things change here so rapidly. Often times the things we work on never even make it to the list because we are building them in response to one of the above factors. If you guys are buzzing about something, guaranteed it's going to happen much sooner. We listen to you very closely. Anything you suggest on here gets into our list too (if it doesn't get built right away), I just can't promise if/when it will happen.

Bit of a roundabout answer, but that's kind of how it is :)

Thanks for the answer Matt, I never imagined the list would be so large! :D If that's the case, I'll just retract this suggestion in humble apology and hope that you will endure the massive amount of work that's before you :) In any case, it's nice to know what's going on behind the scenes of MOBAfire, it kind of attaches me an extra bit to the forum :)

Some things don't get delayed because they're not important, but because they are big projects and there is a lot of "low-hanging fruit" in front of them :( That one is very important but it's going to be a lot of work and so smaller things keep getting shuffled in front. It will happen soon though ;)
