I agree.  We have one person on our mud cleverly designated as the "Head
Socialist" :) who's job it is to create the new socials suggested by the
players.  I even went so far as to create a command called 'socidea' to log
suggestions from players; I merely added a case to the do_gen_write command
(the one the 'bug' and 'idea' commands run off of )and provided the rest of
the code that that function requires.  (As time has passed I've also added
more commands to this function to log my todo list and a list of jobs I've
completed, so that my staff always knows what's on my plate and what's been
done, so it's a handy little bit 'o code)  In general, the more your players
have control of their environment in a positive way, the more happy they'll
be.  My two cents.
