Well as a player and regular user on the forum some people have good ideas, and ideas that will never make it in the game because its too much in coding or mechanics. from your experience what have you seen? i'm a visual artist, i think of it like a picture, so you know what i mean.
One of the guys i've seen posted that the villagers were lazy and he wanted all of them to work.
he wanted the farmer to plant seeds witch is already in the game.
he wanted the butcher making cutting meat or making it
he wanted the blacksmith making weapons and armor
he wanted the librarians doing research
He was so faraway from the yes i support, and was hammered with no supports.
There was this one guy who had made a thread three years ago. One person replied and said that his idea was dumb. Three years later, this guy comes back to his thread with one reply and yells, "Bump from three years ago!" It was the best necropost I have ever seen.
I remember a thread from a few years back, the thread creator had posted an image and asked people what the thing in the image was. It was a clear image of a Minecraft mob, no space for error whatsoever. No problem, right? Just type in the mob's name and hit "post", maybe go to the wiki to grab a link for the mob's page if you're feeling generous.
Except... some people were claiming it was a squid, but others, a ghast. It didn't take long until one group thought the other was joking around with the thread creator. Cue disagreements (some nicer than others), recommendations to get eyes checked and accusations of trolling.
A couple of pages of chaos later, the thread creator posts revealing it was all a ruse made using php script wizardry: different people would randomly be assigned to see either a ghast or a squid, and never the other image. People took it pretty well, all things considered.
That is more cruel that than the Black&Blue/White&Gold Dress.
As a critic of the Suggestions forum, it's impossible for me to list the craziests and most cringe-worthy posts out there, mostly because they end up getting deleted or locked and left to suffer in the pits of other dead/locked threads. But if you stick around there from time to time, you'll see the cons of what being a critic is.
Besides, you guys should check out the Suggestions forum for Pocket Edition and other consoles, there won't be even one thread that would contain at least half a paragraph.
There was suggestion for adding coffee into minecraft. People didn't like it, it the OP lashed out hard, even more than what typically happens. The insults OP flung at everyone were so vulgar and over the top, that was the nastiest, most dramatic flame war I've seen in all my years here.
As for the craziest suggestion, there was a thread suggesting villager slavery. Yes, someone thought it was it was a good idea to add slavery to minecraft.
