I already suggested it in another forum so I’m gonna to copy-paste the discussion so we can continue from where we are.
I suggested: When players search for a game on your website and you don’t have it available, you answer “No products were found matching your selection.”. I suggest you to change this cold message for something like: “Sorry, nothing matching your search is available yet. But you still can search in the games suggestions forum if someone already asked for it and add your voice to make this wish stronger, and if no one asked for it yet, then be the first to ask for it, create a new topic for the game you wish with a link to the developer’s website and make it become available here! ;-)” Then you add a link to the games suggestions forum.
FireFlower answered: That’s a good idea but that sentence might be too long but we can probably change it and make it a bit shorter and perhaps add a link. If it isn’t possible now we’ll implement it on our future site.
I answered: Why couldn’t we make a small text of 3 lines? Why should it be 1 line? I made it the shorter that I could, because everything I wrote is necessary, I think. If you don’t suggest to search in the games suggestions forum if someone already asked, then the player might create a new topic for a game already asked and divide the voices, which would lead to 2 weaker same wishes instead of 1 stronger wish. If you don’t say to add the player’s voice to the wish, then the player might just see that a topic for the game they wish already exists and not click on it so not let know that they too wish this game. Then you also need to encourage to create a new topic for the game they wish with a link to the developer’s site if no one asked for it yet in order to make the game available here. Everything in these 3 lines is necessary. 3 lines is not too long, is it?
Why wouldn’t it be possible now?
Future site? You mean that you like my idea of a rebirth of the website with a new name and a new design? You like my idea of GamerFlowers?
FireFlower answered: We are actually working on a new site with a different but probably similar design (and we’ll consider your ideas), don’t know if we will change the name though. The current site is unfortunately not always that flexible so not sure it will be possible to change that here, but it’s a good idea and we’ll do something with it.
And let’s continue this discussion in the Site Feedback and Suggestions part of the forum.
I answered: If you worry about players who already know this website under the current name, as I told you, you may announce the change of name and give a link to the new website’s URL in a banner visible on the home page, in the news, and in the announcements forum, to make sure that regulars are aware of the change of name and don’t lose the website.
This website’s features are limited?
Okay, I’m gonna to create a new topic in the appropriate forum.
Then here we are.January 18, 2017 at 22:12 #18084
Yeah, if we change the name and url we will of course announce it and you would of course be redirected from the old site to the new site as well. But we will probably not change the name and url in the near future. The new redesigned site will keep the name and the url.
The current site is fully operational. But we would like something completely different, that’s why prefer not to spend too much time and resources on changing things on the current site.January 18, 2017 at 22:21 #18093
Hum… Well… You say that you would like something completely different but you prefer not spending too much time and resources on changing things… Isn’t it contradictory?January 18, 2017 at 22:26 #18096
Something different on the new site, that’s why we prefer not to spend too much time changing the current site as we’re busy working on the new site.January 18, 2017 at 22:50 #18108
And will you release the new site with a new name and URL?January 18, 2017 at 22:51 #18109
Most likely not.January 18, 2017 at 22:56 #18114
