I think it would be great if there was a request thread and someone would read everything everyone has to say. The OP of the thread will get a notification saying read and confirmed or denied. It can be a discussion or it can be private. All profanity should be banned from being posted. That way you know you are getting a good request. A minimum amount of words no consecutive letters you know. I think it would work out beautifully.
So people can know that the coalition is at least putting thought into something they want in the game.
Forum users can get credit for ideas implemented. Or be humble. It would work out great as long as it is troll proof.
