Could you guys try what's shown here http://forums.na.leagueoflegends.com....php?t=3744185 but shorten the coat tails up or remove them completely and just add some belts, ammo, gun and call it a hextech skin?

Know you just said you want to shy away from hextech, but god that concept just screams cait to me and would be a compliment to her current skin and theme. I can just see her drinking tea and solving crime in that and it would give the aura of a powerful crime detective, but would still be just a skin so we can have classic miniskirt Cait

You know, you're the third person to show that piece of artwork. And i'm not even the first one to show it. The first one actually went right of the artist's Deviantart with that bit of artwork.

I wouldn't mind at all if Caitlyn is given elements of Lady Mechanika in her. Also, I really like that Safari Caitlyn Chinese splash art.

So...
The design concept would be shown [Not Final]
But the players could vote on 1 concept aspect [To Make THAT aspect Final]

That way when whatever is released, people can be like "Yay! There's the [Some of both] we voted for! And there's where they took Cait with the rest of the VU. Wow!"

Food for thought.
Yep, good ideas. One big problem however is how to logistically get this rolled out in all territories. We're talking about forums from NA, to EU to Brazil.. Garena, Korea and Australia.. that's not even counting China. That's a lot of infrastructure, monitoring and localization to get rolling. I'm not sure how feasible it'd be. I feel it'd be a mistake to just create a simple poll on NA GD and call that it. That's ignoring a huge pile of players from other territories.

Infrastructure ain't a big deal, Hell the client already has it built in. There's a button down at the bottom that says "Help us improve." If Riot wanted feedback, they'd just need to update that whenever they wanted the public's opinion, and to get everyone's attention, they could put a blue message at the top where the "champion x has been disabled" usually goes saying "we want to know your opinions about whatever, click the 'help us improve' button and let us know what you think on issue X."

I'm not a Features dude, but I'm going to guess, that with our client, things might be more complicated than they look :P
