Suggestion type

Suggestion scope
Option to reverse your brain rot skill

Suggestion description
I know lots of players who bought the brain rot skill as a zombie a long time ago, but now they’ve been revived and are enjoying playing as a survivor, they regret their previous decision and wish there was some way to ‘cure’ their rot.

How about this for a solution: When a human survivor with the brain rot skill is standing INSIDE A POWERED UP NECROTECH building, they are able to spend e.g. 20 AP (as you would manufacturing a syringe) to ‘cure’ their brain rot. I.e. The skill/curse is removed (though the XP is not refunded). Maybe if they also have flesh rot, it costs 40AP to remove the pair.

Surely this is a reasonable change. Surely the good scientists at Necrotech, beavering away in their hundreds of buildings for four years, would have come up with a cure by now? There are no ‘game balance’ issues here, and no potential for ‘griefing’ or any other inconvenience, as only you can remove your own brain rot. We’d simply be making the game more fun for those who have decided they’d like to play as a survivor again. Who are we to say “You’re not allowed to change your mind?”

Kill Votes

  1. - Kill - If you choose to get brain rot, then it should stay.--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 13:53, 8 August 2009 (BST)
  2. - Kill -As above--(x)AlvaromesaTalk | Bacardi |MPD | Malton Public Radio 17:21, 8 August 2009 (BST)
  3. - Kill - Maybe if you worked it out it'd be better. But, for now, no. --User:Axe27/Sig 17:36, 8 August 2009 (BST)
  4. - Kill - I don't know about you, but I have a survivor alt, which means that this wouldn't happen. Also, getting a rot revive is difficult, so most people wouldn't do it, and those who do enjoy the difficulty of finding a powered NT building. This just doesn't make sense.

Spam/Dupe Votes

  1. Spam - The suggestion is partially incomplete because it doesn't specify if turning off brain rot is permanent (ie. whether you could just buy rot once you've taken it off). If you can't and turning it off is permanent, it's hypocritical of the suggestions entire purpose. If it isn't, it's a dupe. Regardless, spending a day's AP to get rid of Brain/Flesh Rot permanently is stupid, and has been discussed numerous times before. --ϑϑ 16:07, 8 August 2009 (BST)

Current Suggestions

Advice to Suggesters

  1. Adding options to your suggestion is not good practice. Others will not vote on the options, only the main body; please don't ask them to do so.
  2. Once you have posted your suggestion, it is considered complete. Altering the suggestion mechanics after voting has begun nullifies existing votes, and is considered an abuse of the suggestions system. Doing so will result in your suggestion being removed from the voting system to removed suggestions, where you can work out the details and resubmit later if you desire. It is preferred that you remove your own suggestion and resubmit a new version with changes, if changes are needed.
  3. "Notes" added for clarification purposes, and correcting spelling/typos are permitted. When considering adding a clarification note, it is often better for all parties involved, for the author to remove the suggestion and resubmit it with the clarification included for the voters who have already placed their votes.

Advice to Voters

  1. You are voting on Suggestions, not Users. The text of your vote should not personally attack or denigrate the user who has submitted it... no matter how ridiculous the idea. Flaming and/or Trolling will not be tolerated.
  2. Before voting please read the Suggestions Dos and Do Nots and Frequently Suggested Ideas Page to read about concepts that have been generally considered unworkable in the past. You do not need to follow the guidelines on these pages but they are worth consideration before casting a vote.
  3. One vote per user. No exceptions. You cannot use multiple wiki accounts to vote on a suggestion.
  4. To Vote, use the [edit] button at the top of the voting section, then enter your vote in the the proper format to the end of the relevant section (keep/kill/spam).
  5. It is strongly recommended that voters (especially in the kill/spam sections) justify their vote to help others understand the reason they disagree. Feedback helps new suggesters get a feel for what the community does and does not want included in Urban Dead, and a deeper understanding of the balance needed for a workable suggestion.
  6. Votes must include a signature in order to be considered valid votes. To sign a vote, use --~~~~. Please remember to sign your votes! Unsigned votes will be deleted after 30 minutes or when found.
  7. Each Suggestion will be open to voting for two (2) weeks, measured from the suggestion's Timestamp, unless it is a Dupe or Spam. If, at the end of that time, there are two thirds (2/3) more Keep votes than Kill votes, the Suggestion will be moved to the Peer Reviewed Suggestions page. Otherwise, the Suggestion will be moved to the Peer Rejected Suggestions page.
Rules for Discussions

Votes are NOT the place to discuss Suggestions. This page and archived suggestion pages only to be used for the Suggesting and subsequent Voting of these suggestions. If you wish to discuss the suggestion or vote here, please use this page's Talk page (Suggestion talk:20090808 Cure Your Brain Rot). Suggestions do not have to be submitted in order to discuss them. Developing Suggestions can be used to workshop possible suggestions before they are submitted.

Valid Votes
  • Keep, for Suggestions that you believe have merit.
  • Kill, for Suggestions that you believe do not have merit. If you need to discuss a rule fix, use the discussion page.
  • Spam, for the most ridiculous suggestions.
Suggestions can be removed with Spam votes as described on the cycling suggestions page. If the criterion described there are not fulfilled, the suggestion must remain for the whole two weeks.
Spam votes are not a "strong kill", they are simply here to prevent the utterly ridiculous from clogging up the system. If you do not like the idea, and it's not some crazy uber power or something else ridiculous, VOTE KILL, NOT SPAM. Spam votes will be counted as Kill when votes are tallied.
  • Dupe, for Suggestions that are exact or very close duplicates of previous suggestions. For a Dupe vote to be valid, a link must be provided to the original suggestion.
Dupe votes can be used to remove suggestions as described on the cycling suggestions page. Dupe votes will not be counted when votes are tallied.
  • Humourous, for suggestions that are obviously intended to be satirical, or of comedic value only.}}
Suggestions can be removed with Humourous votes as described on the cycling suggestions page. If the criterion described there are not fulfilled, the suggestion must remain for the whole two weeks.
Invalid Votes
  • Server Load and Programming Complexity are NOT very good Kill reasons. You are voting on the merit of the suggestion and whether or not you think it belongs in the game. Server load/complexity issues are up to Kevan to decide.
  • X should be implemented first is not a valid reason for a vote. You are voting on the merit of THIS suggestion, not how it compares to others.
  • Votes that do not have reasoning behind them are invalid. You MUST justify your vote.
  • Re may be used to comment on a vote. Only the original author and the person being REd can comment. Comments are restricted to a single comment per vote, and it is expected that Re comments be as short as possible. Reing every kill vote is considered abuse of the Re comment. A Re does not count as a vote, and any subsequent discussion not part of the Re comment should be held on the discussion page if there is any extended commenting.
  • Note is used by System Operators to invalidate trolling-based votes. Only Sysops may remove troll-based votes and they do so with a strikeout <s></s> in order to preserve the trolling removal for posterity. The voter may contest the strikeout with the Sysop that struck their vote out on the discussion page. Only a System Operator may remove a strikeout.
