    I personally think you should put all accepted/denied suggestions in a forum visible to all, just so that people don't suggest things that already are implemented on the server.
    It would also work as an indicator for suggestions that are in progress, which could be evidenced by placing a prefix.
    Like this.
    [Accepted] Change emojis
    [Accepted] Make mod rank available on store [clickbait]
    [In Progress] Add new ranks c:

    Disagreed. All the ideas and suggestions go up higher than most of the staff not just players. Myself as a helper do not know what suggestions will or will not be accepted. I believe that adding another subforum just to read suggestions that have already been read and commented on is imo not that important.

    Edit: After rereading the thread I think that I agree with this suggestion. I tought that the subforum would be a view only and not any conversation about the threads.

    It would be neat to see which ideas J&H see interested in which those specific threads could be moved to that subforum for further discussion. It also would give players a history if all the thread suggestions that have been accepted could be added to see a "history" of J&H.

    I agree since I don't see any thing wrong with it. I don't like the idea of prefixes though since players would "troll" and make some ridiculous suggestions say "Accepted" as click bait.

    Would rather just have a sub forum to indicate. If a suggestion is denied or in progress, you can most likely tell.

    I agree. Also, maybe there could be prefixes players can choose from to help specify what their suggestion is about? These could just be..for example...
    • All the mini-games/open world servers in their own respective prefix
    • Forums
    • Whole-server
    I really doubt this would be abused to the point where it's harmful because there aren't many suggestions posted often/frequently in the first place. That's that :)

    The prefixes wouldn't be to choose from, they'd be immediately added once the suggestion is accepted.

    That wouldn't be necessary if there's already a sub forum for it. Also players can manually choose prefixes of any sort when posting a thread. Unless you have found a XenForo add-on that only allows staff to manage prefixes it can't be accomplished.

    The prefixes would be used as an alternative for the subforums.
    Also, there used to be a way for only staff to manage prefixes c:

    That would be great, I agree.
    It will also show us community members that the staff team does care and read the suggestions we make.

    I agree, this would show the changes on the server and it won't leave people in a jam (meaning people won't have to find out if something changed)
    It would show it is not clickbait.

    Additionally, this would help see that staff actually looks at suggestions (if they actually look at THIS suggestion that is)

    With the amount of suggestions left on the forums, I think it would help a lot to organize it better and also can help give other people ideas on how to create better suggestions for the server. This is something I definitely agree with.

    I only agree on the subforum, I think it's a more organized way to see which suggestions have been accepted.

    This would be a good addition so we can see all the changes but I'd would say we would definitely need a denied section.

    Yes.. a denied subforum would be great too.
    I'll add that.

    We rarely have any "denied" suggestions except for any that are obviously stupid or not needed. Any threads that have no feedback aren't necessarily denied, they are just still open for debate.

    I agree with accepted suggestions. Ain't necessary, but it would be pretty handy. Denied could come in hand, but I don't see it working, due to the fact most suggestions don't get a response from any of the 3 owners/co-owners. To work around that, I'd say just have a sub-thread stating what threads not to make.

    I actually think having a 'Denied Suggestions' subforum is also a good idea to organize the whole 'Suggestions' forum and show people what suggestions not to remake.

    With the tons of threads I see about adding /staff, while it has clearly been denied in the past, I agree with this suggestion. It is also good to see what has been suggested before and been denied so you don't get double suggestions
