    As many of us know, a lot of people do not visit the forums, especially casual players. Yes I realize this should be under game-design, however many people on the forums do not look there.

    Introducing an in-game polling system should be a fairly simple thing to implement considering the journal in it's current form.

    This would not only strength community communication, but give casual players a "voice," as you may call it. A lot of the time the loudest players are heard, but that doesn't necessarily mean that the opinions of those players reflect the community as a whole.

    Here is an example of the in-game polling Jagex's Runescape: Old School has implemented, and it is working fantastically. Any vote that passes 70%(maybe it's 66%) by the end of the voting period is implemented by their development team. A majority of the time these things on the poll have either A.) Already been started and some form, or B.) Used as sort of a roadmap for the players.

    There is in NO WAY this could hurt/harm/damage the community. This concept can only bring positive returns and a clear reflection of what the community is interested in. What Runescape: Old School does along with pairing with this, is talking about, and answer tweets on their weekly Q&A and Dev streams. This is a great way to engage the community and pick information out of them.

    Osrs voting is 75% though I think they polled reducing it to 70%.

    It is a really great system since the community almost self balances the game by adding content with minimal power creep.

    ROA polls would need to be vague though to avoid spoiling any content.

    Things like:

    Should we add 5 more wilderness house spots to the islands?

    Should we increase the drop rate on x?

    Yeah just little things, QOL, start mastering the game and refining what is inside before adding new content. That's not to say don't work ON new content, but it's time to fix what we have before we add new.
