This is more a call from many at the SD Demigod Forums. recently there has been a lot of call for some real input from the dev's (specificly GPG). below are a few example of recent posts that are looking for some serious input, so please look over these.
How is GPG designing Demigods?
How is GPG designing Demigods?Let Stardock Develop Content GPG!

Reason why this is in the Idea Section is because i don't want to know the nit and grit of the design process but what i would like is if GPG is actually taking our ideas from this section and tweaking them into reality or if they have their own super team of designers doing their own ideas?
if it is that latter (and i hope it is not) then i think its probably a good idea to let us know rather than have many talented people waste their time and energy on something pointless. however if the ideas are being seriously considered i think it would be nice to be given a heads up of certain ones that have peaked the Dev's interests to more intense disussion can be done as well as balance, appearance, and gameplay issues that players have for or against such ideas.
a good idea has to evolve and adapt with lots and lots of input (3 years in a Bachelors of Arts talking here) and being able to focus on one specific ideas or spectrum is always efficent that hundreds of single flat ideas. with the Demigod Master List pinned up now we (as a comunitee) have lots of ideas literaly at the Dev's finger tips so why not help the progress along even more with highly developed and discussed ones that can be almost skip months of planning and go straight to the programmers.
since SD is saying the reason behind delayed devolopment is because of limited reasourses (about $100,000 / Demigod was the figure i read) then making the development process as smooth as possible seems like a win-win situation.
anyone else feel the same?
Let Stardock Develop Content GPG!
Give Stardock More Ability GPG

I'm serious about this. I want to know why. I want to know why Frogboy is forced to handle everything and he does not even work at GPG. GPG guys are posting on SupCom2 on the GPG Net forums all the time. Why do we not ever get a single bit of a useful post from GPG here? We want to hear from you. This game is released. You're supposed to be around supporting it. Instead all the focus seems to have gone onto SupCom 2.
Thus, I want to know what owners of Demigod want. Frogboy has posted this:
I think that the planned 2 demigods at a time is fine. Frogboy mentioned a Demigod 'pipeline' - I hope this means we can expect to see Demigods come out at a much faster rate once they get chugging.
I am saying how I'dl ike it to be seen.
I see 3 possibilities:
1. I am able to persuade GPG to produce more Demigods faster.
2. I am able to persaude GPG to let Stardock produce Demigods/maps for them and then release.
3. I am able to persuade GPG to let modders and Stardock to produce Demigods/maps for them and then release them.
That's the bottom line really.
This means that Stardock is probably willing to develop content. Who else that owns Demigod wants to see option 2 or 3 persued? And lets not have this post get buried. We all are talking about more content so lets make it known here we want Stardock to be making it alongside GPG.
we at the SD Demigod forums would really really like some feedback, is it better to start posing doubles over on this forums or just wait for your responce on the other one?
