Hello Dark Heresy community
I've been perusing these topics for quite some time now, especially since the word of the DH beta came out. I never considered it to be an viable option for myself to get involved into discussion nor do I see myself as having capability to contribute in any meaningful way ruleswise. However in the light of these new events (I'm talking of course about this de facto reboot of the DH beta) I thought I could give you a bystander's perspective of the atmosphere/mood on these forums.
There have been some really great suggestions on how to tweak and modify the existing systems as presented by the developers, some of which addressed the burning issues with the beta and produced meaningful, interesting and above all functional alternatives. The thing is, some of the individuals here, wanting to assert the validity of their arguments began flaunting with the word "majority" or consciously/subconsciously used other methods of swaying people to see things their way. That is understandable, a natural behavior when you are passionate or enthusiastic about something and you want others to see the awesomeness of it.
So what exactly do I keep blathering about here anyway? Well, I propose to make a poll. I have seen people here create extensive and verbose topics on how the rules should work in order to get noticed by other people, especially FFG staff. I believe that the poll mechanics should solve these endeavors once and for all. Have a topic which you think is a game changer and would like to see how the community breathes? Make a poll. Want to get noticed? Make a poll. Want to catch the eye of the developers and get heard? Make a poll.
I don't know whether this forum's architecture supports one such feature, but I honestly believe it would once and for all resolve the issue on where the majority train of thought is headed, which in turn could be of great help to the powers that be.
