As you have lurked and posted on the politics forum ample times, you probably know who I am. I believe very strongly that if Wakfu is to be a community based game, there must be a reasonable amount of out-of-game communication on a more civilized level (eg. no the "WTB [item]" "LFG Gob dung." type communication). What most see on the forum as hate-mongering and political aggression, I see as one of the most engaged game communities ever. Have you ever seen somebody campaigning with such ferocity and passion in other games? If the developers don't, the players should and must encourage use of this forum. Not only have there been rivalries though; we have seen the alliance of Joker and Isthore, which may have been very fruitful due to the Weekend Warrior policy.
I think it may be quintessential to the current government to tell people about what is being done about species and the manner in which they're being planted purchasing seeds for extinct specimens from players from personal funds, as opposed to using money in the treasury for expensive and inefficient "official" methods. Statistics like that will not be displayed in the Policy UI, and therefore appear not to happen unless it is featured in the governor's speech.
One for the developers:
There needs to be a way to express the vox populi
without having to PM a member of the government (since it's tedious and they are not online at all times). Something like this:
Which the selected recipient can recieve in an inbox and act upon.
This would not only help the government know what is in demand, but also give players the incentive to report things that are wrong or missing without having to go through a cluster of threads on some messy forum.
Thanks to Joker & Co. for being a good government,
Thanks to Ankama for creating a wonderful and enjoyable game,
Thanks to you because you're awesome (unless you're Fireman, you're not awesome)
