While we appreciate the time the Kano staff take to "tell" us of upcoming changes to the game, wouldn't it be better to open up the ideas to discussion as soon as you have the idea? This way you could gauge players reactions to these changes before you spend the time working on the code. It works to save you time and effort (limiting attacks on players ring a bell?) and possibly improve on the idea before you decided to change to game code. Give the players a little credit for being intelligent people and realise that this is simply brainstorming and not a concrete indication of changes to come... just something you were thinking about. The more you involve us, the more we are involved in the game, the more we play. People prefer to be asked, not told.
