Ya no kidding I look at whenever Riot posts about the Tribunal they make it out to be the perfect thing ever except I think it actually makes the game worse it turns everyone into carebears that will report you for the slightest thing you do and you can get banned for harassment when there is a mute/ignore function and believe me I use the ignore/mute function quite extensively no reporting necessary.

In fact, the intent of this program is to highlight forum threads that show particularly interesting player-Rioter interactions. As you know, threads move really quickly on these boards, so we thought it would be cool to make these kinds of threads more visible and easier to access for the average forum-goer.
Then I think we need a sticky on new map discussion........................................ .....

Except that will never get through Riot's bias.

A company that in business to maximize profits would be following the shareholders model. This means that the companies only social responsibility is to maximize profits which in turn maximizes shareholders wealth and satisfaction. For Riot to do this they would charge a monthly rate and/or remove IP all together and make you buy champs with RP.

Riot is actually following the Stakeholders model. The stakeholder would not only be the shareholders, but also the employees, customers, ect. The most important of these stakeholders would be the customers. Without the customers there would be reason to make this game. The customers must realize though that they cant be overly demanding, like many of the players of this game, because there needs to be some kind of income flow for the company to be operational. By having IP as a component in the game that allows you to buy champs for free is appealing to the wide player base.

These two terms are learned by every student in the introductory management/economics class at any college or university. Your post shows your complete lack of understanding of anything that has to do with economics.

Riot will make new maps. God help them if they don't. With the release of FAIL after FAIL. It's cause loads of players to quit this game left and right. The last thing keeping players here are the **** on some of the female champions.

If Riot doesn't get their **** together, we gonna have another GW2.

Hey Morello and other Reds

I always see tons of threads showing mass support for fan created skin concepts to be officially made by Riot (Ex. Gentleman Singed, Digger Rumble, Dragon Master Swain, Void Fizz, Girls Generation Ahri, Brorelia, Firedancer Draven). These suggestions usually get a fair amount of Red support and gets the fans of said concepts excited for the possibility of it coming to fruition.

So, in order for us players to further support and actually progress the process, I propose that once every quarter (maybe longer depending on how you feel about the idea) Riot holds a public poll listing fan skin ideas. Once a winner has been decided then that skin will be created . This idea could only yield positive results, as it will be viewed as a huge Fan Service from a PR point of view, and it also expands the repertoire of skins with a wide variety of creative ideas.

@Morello: Is this an idea that would possibly interest you, and what would you think of this becoming a reality?

Do you believe Riot is currently doing its fullest to meet the expectations of the average userbase. That is to say (excluding E-sports) does this product in your opinion feel as whole as you'd want it to be as a normal player or does it feel like its lacking in areas ?
There's never a time I'll be able to answer "yes" to this - I think part of what makes us a good company is a lack of comfort and self-satisfaction with our product because it ensures we're always trying to think of how to improve.

I don't think the expectation I have is that we're ever "perfect" or "done," because if we don't feel the need to improve, then we are failing.

Don't try and pull that card that "things are complex", no they really aren't (I'll give some credit to the Mac team as they're probably the ones who are working the hardest) However anything else could be considered quite binary, and if it isn't then there is a problem with the foundation that your game resides on.
Without going into detail: you're confusing figuring out a problem and fixing a problem, and the deliberations surrounding prioritizing the former.
