I'm not someone who gets all caught up in what the themes should or shouldn't be...I just make use of what comes out. Or I don't, if I really don't care for the theme. But these improvements sound spot on and I think a lot of players will appreciate having their voice heard. This seems like a good step in the right direction so good luck to all involved.

Good. Sounds good. Do you mean you're going to post results of the surveys for upcoming themes? or the surveys that come at the end of the theme? I'm wondering how the Spies theme fared on the last upcoming theme suggestion survey. Are we ever going to get another spies theme? I think the Spies vs Supervillains (although it was Zynga and not BVG) was one of the best themes we ever had in the game (furniture-wise anyways).

I agree Michele , spies was an awesome theme, also one of my favorites, I wish we could have something like that come back :)

Forgive me if I have reservations.... We cant even agree about when Fall starts around this place. If someone came up with a thread about what year it was, we would probably argue about that too! I cant see us ever coming up with ideas we all agree on. Plus, I tend to like some of the quirky off the wall stuff the designers come up with. I hope to be pleasantly surprised though!
I do like the idea of more transparency around surveys. I like the added info...
Live your life the way you choose. Let me do the same. Just remember that your way is not my way and we will get along just fine.
my giveaway home. 3-4 items max please and tell me what room its in.

It would be nice if you would have two surveys.....one for adults and one for the kiddos, and take ideas from both. Because we are getting way too many juvenile themes with maybe 1-2 normal adult themes if we're lucky. Zygna was able to find a way to meet in the middle. Why is this so difficult for the Viking Team? Maybe there needs to be more adults in the room....

I agree with Queenie. IMO nothing will change. This is merely a way to try and shut us up. We will still get silly, stupid, kiddie themes. Zynga themes were so much better. They were able to make adult decisions. They were able to give everyone something they liked. They knew how to find that balance. And they accomplished that with common sense not with surveys. I miss Zynga.

The Day of the Dead items are soooooooo good. I really wish that could have been a whole theme in stores. I would have bought everything!

:eh: I just had an idea! :idea: Perhaps you could also have a topic for each quarter survey in which people can post a few pictures of what each theme proposal means to them? Might be more to wade through but I bet you could pick up on common threads more easily. Only have it up for a week then close it so you have time to review it? Maybe limit the amount of pictures per post so you don't get drowned, merely flooded? ;)

Best wishes with this and hope it goes well. Unfortunately for me it's too little too late to really care. I have submitted theme and item ideas and made numerous comments and suggestions over the years but the recent string of repeat and unrealistic themes coupled with a disappointing Halloween topped off by most of last years stuff being reissued as "classic" was the last straw here I have been considering dropping my VIP since Big Food World theme but held out hoping for a good Halloween which wasn't delivered. I used to have daily tours of various properties and stopped that during the beginning of the Castle Dracula theme
I will be taking the $200-$400 per month I've been spending on here and build another bike over the winter and rebuild my Jeep in the spring. I will check in to see how the "improvements" are going but I honestly cannot foresee myself spending any more money on here because it's been starting to feel a lot like when the game began circling the drain under Zynga lately.
As I've stated before, most recently in reply to a message from Viking Jess, "The core of Yo players who actually spend money regularly are now 'middle aged' players who've played for a long time and will keep spending money if the themes appeal to them, the players who don't spend money are kids who don't have the disposable income of middle aged workers and all the contests and challenges in the world won't get them to spend, they'll just continue to post begging events and trying to scam people.
As far as I'm concerned all the kiddie appealing themes are driving away the older players and not getting the younger ones to spend or the stupid challenges and "classic" reissues wouldn't be here. How long until BVGs bean counters say the same thing?

:idea: I have another suggestion! For gem event rewards. Couldn't you pull the item from the pool you draw from for at least 2 events AFTER the event it appears in? Then we would have a chance for more variety! :) And could you maybe see about the Sunday Sales matching better to the current theme? Provencial Town is on sale, but we are in Atlantis! o_O
