You say this......but then Popstar Ahri is a thing.

Oh, its not that we didn't ask for a skin for Ahri. We asked for a skin that you had already completed and we just wanted localized. Instead you went and made a completely different skin only kind of related to the one we wanted and put in likely 4x times the work for roughly the same amount of return that you would've gotten anyway.

And it still doesn't answer as to WHY you don't make more 520 and 750 skins anymore. That price tier has some of the best skins (Commando for example) and they're relatively simple and easy to make compared to all these fancy 975 skins and 1350 skins you guys make, but they've completely died off. Some of us would like to have an alternate or cool look for our champions that doesn't involve us shelling out $10 or $15 all the freaking time.

It seems like you really just want the money from one particular group of people, rather than the whole player base. Just because the 1350 and 975 skins are the most popular doesn't mean you stop making 520 and 750 skins especially if you can still make some money from them.

You don't stop selling the chicken sandwhich just because the roast beef sandwhich is more popular.

My primary problem with skins right now is twofold. The thing that is relevant to WizardCrab is that the distinction between different price tiers seems arbitrary; I don't know why the Riven skin is 1350, while the other two are 975. I cannot tell a difference in quality between the three, so the only answer I can think of is 'Riven is more popular so they think they can afford to charge more for it'.

The second problem is 'Where's Lunar Goddess Karma?' but that's not his division.

It's one thread out of possibly 200-300 made a day. And trust me being i post here every day. it's not on the front page as much as you think it is.

Second,, the thread is a landmine. Most of the people there bash hippaulus on a daily basis. It is not a thread to be posted in lightly. Even if they know of it, they still need meetings probably just to come to an appropriate response.

Hostile threads like that are every workers nightmare. Noone wants to be on the other side.

This goes back to another problem with the forums. No moderation.
I lost you, what does moderation have to do with this? Moderators have nothing to do with bringing threads to developer's attention. They have to do with keeping order on the forums. Just wanted to make sure you knew that.

Why is there trouble that a well thought out thread such as that one would be gone from the front page in under a minute while silly threads bashing people based on their ranking?
Yes, let's instead have a thread where at least 70% of the people are just posting silly posts bashing Riot and are ready to hang the first red who posts there.

Second, and a reminder: Moderators don't sticky anything they want, and thats the only thing that would put the thread on the front page.

And i would never want that thread stickied. it's cancer to read.

Why would you possibly want a well thought out thread to be replaced with a silly thread? Through all of this what has riot done? Started posting on reddit more except for a few people who post on here. Those of us who remember the days when a thread such as that one would be addressed by Riot ( even with a simple hey good post, we will get an answer for you asap ) within a day or two want to go back to that type of communication and commitment with Riot.
Bull****, people have been bashing Riot for years.

Clearly you were never a Lux fan
Or an Irelia fan
Or shaco
Clearly you don't play dominion
Clearly you weren't around when release Xin Zhao was released

Hell, i've seen beta threads of people bashing the Air Engine. That is YEARS ago.

This **** isn't new by any means.Nor is calling Riot out when they can't respond to every single thread.

In fact, i saw a lot of this on Blizzards forums since the day WoW came out, as well....

On a side note, you probably want Reddit, given if a thread is as good as you say it is, it would stay on the front page for considerably longer. Reddit bumps based on upvotes as much as it does posts.

Fourms are just posts.

Soo....yeah. I think you actually want to be on Reddit.

That said, I *don't* see why your first response here wasn't "Hmm, I see you have a legitimate problem. I shall locate the Reds responsible and make certain that someone who *can* answer these very important questions shows up to talk with you."

It's hard enough getting a Red to reply to important threads *at all*. A Red who can't answer the relevant questions is nice but not actually helpful.
That person might not be able to respond, might not want to respond, or I might just not know who that person is. This is the best I can do. Some individuals don't like posting on the forums. Riot doesn't force anyone to.

What if the person says "No, i can't talk to them", what does he say then?

Remember, he's here at his discretion, not because he's being forced to. More than likely, that means he's at his work desk doing 'something' as he talks.

Or maybe he's off shift, and quite literally 'can't' contact the correct person.

At that point, we're basically asking two people to drop their work duties to talk to the community, not just one.
I'm sitting on my couch at home. I've just been answering questions here for the last 4 hours or so.

@WizardCrab

Can you please find a Mac or Client support member to look at an issue I'm trying to bring attention to? I'm having a hell of a time getting attention for it. I know it does affect a good deal of people. I'm sorry I'm advertising my thread here, but I dont know any better place. If you can help, thank you very much. I hope I'm helping many people out there by trying to bring attention to this.

Isn't that effectively the issue being addressed though?

If I can speak for the group here, I think most of us prefer the forums the way they are now, for a plethora of reasons. The addition of FEK provides us with tons of options that go above and beyond what the new community beta has to offer, and as for FEK updates, there seems to be much more coming on the horizon.

Speaking of which, do you yourself use FEK? I spoke with another Rioter recently who was confused about the program, because he thought he would need to input his personal details linked to his Riot account. This actually isn't true at all, as you only need an account if you plan to upload an avatar, which as a red, you probably wouldn't need or want to do that anyways. FEK can still run purely as an add-on that alters the appearance and behaviors of the forum, without having to create an account linked to it.
I honestly haven't looked into using FEK, but maybe I should.

moving on, do you think its doable to have a redtracker that is made by riot and tracks rioter account posts on both reddit and the forums, and displays them in a manner that is NOT reddit. because im being honest that website gives me headaches.
My technical background involves making a javascript game of pong for some random class in college.

I have no idea if it would be technically possible to track red posts on Reddit, integrate Reddit with our website, or do both simultaneously. And that's not even talking about figuring out how to take all the posts of a Reddit thread and re-arrange them in a fast and automated way on our website.

Unfortunately, I also don't even know who to talk to to bring this suggestion up, but I think it would be a pretty cool idea. I'm pretty sure the big blocker would be technical limitations. It wouldn't surprise me if it was doable, but from a noob's perspective like mine it seems like quite a daunting task.
