Community Management and I have decided to discontinue the Feature Upvote page due to issues we came across while using the platform. We take pride in always trying to improve the system on how we collect and process your feedback which is why we wanted to try out a platform like Feature Upvote. Even though it didn't work out in the end, I'm glad we tried it because it gave us further insight into what works the best for our community. Sometimes you gotta fail in order to figure out what's best for you. What lessons have you and CoM learned from this experience? - We've always known that discussion is important but F^ solidified this fact. While F^ was a more casual setting and made it easy for players to drop their suggestions, it took away from discussion & interaction between our players and the staff team. Even though it's a few extra steps to create a forums account, I do think it's worth it for the experience you get. - Adding a completely different platform to our arsenal spread CoM out a little too thin which meant less interaction on other platforms. From now on we'll be focusing on the platforms we already have. - Because F^ was separate from the forums and anyone could submit anything without an account, a lot of the posts we got were either repeats of suggestions we've seen in the past, bug reports or questions for staff members. Even though it might result in fewer suggestions, we want platforms that will result in higher quality suggestions. -Feature Upvote wasn't developed by us which meant we couldn't fix issues ourselves and had to rely on others to fix them. Anything we work on should be something we can actually manage so that we can deal with issues on our own. Where did the suggestions on F^ go? - Don't worry, we went through everything and saved everything that isn't on our boards already. If you submitted something and need the response, feel free to message anyone on Community Management. Now that Feature Upvote is gone, where can I submit my feedback and suggestions? - We actually have three places where you can submit your suggestions and get feedback from others. The forums is our main platform, with a specific section for ideas! We also have two discords. For a more casual setting, you can use the official Mineplex Discord. Just head on over to #java-ideas and send over your suggestion. For a quicker response, you can @ the feedback team. For a more discussion-based discord, you can join the Mineplex Community Insights server. You can message anyone on Community Management, @DanielW231 @rqil @Smaland47 and @lukafin for an invite. Will you be looking into other options in the future? Yes but instead of something separate, it'll be upgrades to what we already have. Don't have any details on that right now though. I know this was a lot to read but I felt like it was important to address everything rather than issuing a blanket statement. If you guys have any questions or concerns, feel free to reply to this thread or message anyone on CoM.
