Every few months/years, Juggle descends from heaven to provide updates for the Site. As far as I am aware, there is never any form of consensus among the users of this Site as to what updates are wanted. (Also, please excuse me if it turns out that I've made this thread before.)
My proposal is that DDO goes through a series of polls, discussions, and referendums so that a small number of the most favored updates can be decidedly selected. There's no guarantee that Juggle will even look at this compilation, but it's generally smart for a business to look at what the consumers want. If X is what most DDOers want, it's perhaps a sign that potential consumers of this Site in general would, for the most part, desire X. Perhaps some would-be regular consumers didn't stay on DDO because it lacks X. Perhaps more people would be a part of this Site if it had X. In any case, it helps to know what the group should be asking for whenever updates come around.
Thoughts?

-Record of debate comments and number of debate comments per user
-Chatbox
-The ability to delete your own poll and opinion votes, as well as forum posts, debate comments, and profile comments

The transfer from Word to DDO is dodgy

The last update Juggle did broke the site. The forums "vanished" from the front page, the debates have been stuck on the same ones for months, and the polls are practically broken. I would like to see all the bugs that Juggle caused to be fixed.
