The forums are little chaotic and I get a little overwhelmed searching through it all as the only admin. In an effort to help organize things, I've added a separate forum for suggestions, either about gameplay, UI, science, or the engine in general. Please search through these suggestions first before posting anything new.
I'll be moving existing threads over to this forums. Let me know if there is a thread that should be moved that I missed.
