Flare, whenever you see an idea that you think is too complicated or gets in the way of the fun, point it out! The list threads are for both proposing ideas and discussing the ones that have been proposed. If, at the end of the day, our ideas aren't making the game more fun then we're wasting our time. I agree that some of the suggestions on these boards increase micromanagement, etc., at the expense of a fun game, just as there are some ideas that are really good and should be added. By pointing out flaws in other people's suggestions, you can help make the suggestions better, which is what we all want. Even getting people to think about playability instead of realism is a good thing to do, so I encourage you to post in all the threads that need it.
