That's not true. I've got some pretty some suggestions in my time at running MUDs, things I wouldn't even think of implementing and after I tell the person a few times I stop listening to their requests. The admin need not care what the player suggests. I would not sacrafice my ideas of a good MUD for their ideas of a good MUD unless I deem their ideas better. It is, after all, my MUD. I don't give a damn if John Doe thinks there should be HT (high tech) areas, or Jane Doe thinks there should conform to a low tech, no magic system, my idea of a good MUD differs, and it is my MUD, so why should I care what they think would make the MUD better if I don't want to include that into my MUD? Basically, I'll listen, but I don't need to give a damn to correctly run my MUD. Some things I like, some things I don't. The things I don't like, I don't care about, and hence, I do some minor insult to the player by rejecting their suggestion or just ignoring it after the 3rd time they plead to me to add it.
