Default Previous Ideas


Purpose and Use:
The intent of this thread is to keep the Feedback Section of the site from having repeats of previous ideas. This thread will accomplish this by listing all previously suggested ideas that have already been suggested in the Feedback Forum. In addition to the section pertaining Rejected ideas, there will also be a section for Pending and Implemented ideas as well. This is a nice way to see which features made the cut, are on the fence, or just didn't make it. For Pending ideas, I'll try to find out when these will be implemented but honestly sometimes we just don't know so be patient. Again, check here often as I will be keeping tabs on this thread every few weeks or when a major idea comes around.

This is NOT the place to post new ideas, please post them in the Feedback Forum instead!

Submitting an Idea to this Thread:

If you think an idea is worthy of being put in this thread, please give the following information in a single post within this thread:
  • The name of the idea
  • At least two threads where this idea was the main discussion. The exception to this rule is threads in which major discussion has gone on, I will use judgment to determine which threads fit the needed level of discussion.
  • Every thread related to the topic you are concerned with. If there are more than five then you only need to give the five most recent.
If you see an idea in this thread that is implemented, not represented, or in some way incorrect, please notify me by posting in this thread.

Please do not create chatter on this thread as its purpose is similar to that of a "Problem with a trophy guide" thread, it is simply to let others know a set of information.

Thank You Notes and Acknowledgments:
First and foremost, I would like like to thank Moose_PS3T. Without much of his effort with the main layout and a load of the content, this thread wouldn't be possible. So here's a cookie Moose. Next, I would like to thank the staff for being open to our requests and working with us to make this site better. Lastly, I would like to thank the rest of the community for offering ideas as the growth of this site cannot happen without your input. So thank you, and enjoy reading.

It could also be used negatively if desired.

I would also say that the amount of time & effort required to this would be massive to say the least. Given the amount of votes and the amount of games/threads it would need a large dedicated team and for it to be their sole responsibility. I'm afraid that just isn't possible.

Would Cauchy be anymore of MoY deserving than platinum, chuck, FARAZ, Yoshi, or Feb.'s MoM? That's a question I don't really want to have to answer.

I'm not sure about others but the last thing I want to do when I get home from school and get done my homework is do someone else's. Plus I haven't seen many questions about homework in the past, certainly not enough to warrant its own forum.
Site Awards for Trophy Amounts:
Thread 1

My personal opinion is that putting my trophy card in my signature is enough to display my achievements, without the need for further awards.

*A Special Note: As many of you already know, PS3T has a sister site, x360a (or xbox360achievements.org). x360a is over 2 years older than this site and therefore has had a much longer time to develop and implement many assortments/perks that this site has yet to gain. So before you decide to immediately ask in the Feedback Forum for any of these things (or try to pass it off as an original idea), please take the above statement into consideration. Many of these things are either on the way or not added for reasons of the Staff (feel free to send any of them a PM if confused).

The link you have posted for the wiki-style forum/thread is broken. Just thought I would let you know because I want to see what that idea was about

And good work on getting this new one up & running.

And maybe the possible changes of site trophy tiles. They may only change the borders if we have new pics altogether

That's more of an update rather than an idea, I'll see where it goes though.
