Re: Conference of the Monarch (Thoughts)
Polly, do you honestly thing Game Design is working as a means to influence change in the game? I know I've seen you rant about how the devs don't listen there. As a player with a lot of free time, I found that Game Design was ridiculously hard to keep up with even for me.

I believe that game design is more useful than the Monarch Conferences. It samples a larger (although still pathetically small) portion of the population and the devs do read it. Although developer priorities are often out of synch with my own, particularly on the chest division issue, the forum is a useful way to bring ideas to developer attention. The conferences, on the other hand, were a great way to tell Hypnos what we thought. She may or may not have passed the ideas on to the developers, who had already seen all of the ideas anyway since they had all been posted about in Game Design (and often in multiple threads).

Hypnos doesn't need to hear my voice to find out what I think about YPP.
