Very interesting OP, seems like community management is important. I guess that also means if we are a good community it's a big help. As a helpful SotA Community we need to keep our critical feedback constructive, present opinions in a helpful manner, and keep our debates clean. We should avoid arguing with each other. When a thread gets shut down, it's like the Devs feel that not only is it not helpful, but it's also hurting the game. If we really feel the the Devs are not listening, don't care, stupid, not going to deliver, etc... Then why are we here? We should just leave. If we are full of anger because our expectations have not been met, we should realize that expressing that does not help anyone, and look to put ourselves in a position where we can be positive, helpful, and have fun.
