The Race Suggestions forum was closed after a rather short discussion in a not too visible thread. Having little information about this, I would appreciate knowing a couple of things before making up my mind about the situation.
1) Is there going to be a Sim News post regarding this change, or are SWC players going to be informed about it in any other way?
2) Was the issue discussed among admins, and an agreement reached in private, or did Hal have the power, being Race Director, to decide that no new races may be suggested for an unspecified period of time?
3) Is it possible that this happens again in the future - the possibility of enhancing the game in one way being closed due to a lack of demand/results?
No malice or bad feeling here, I just would appreciate knowing the facts. Thanks.
The forums change and evolve in regards to the needs of the game at the time. At this time, I see no need for a Race Suggestions forum. Other changes to the forums are rarely, if ever announced on the Sim News, and I see no need for this one to be so. Those who were using the forum should already be aware of it. The Race Suggestions forum was added due to the volume of threads about new races. It is now being closed due to a lack of volume of those threads. It may be reopened at a later date.
