I have noticed a lot of threads in the suggestions area on the forum and I think people should read this before making a thread as a lot of them are not well written at all. Here are my top tips: Edit: if you have any tips, please reply to the thread and I’ll add it to the list The title should be, “Route suggestion.” Why do people think a suitable, appropriate title would be the name of the route? YOUR THREAD IS THE ONLY ROUTE SUGGESTION THAT MATTERS. THEREFORE YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO NAME YOUR THREAD, ’ROUTE SUGGESTION.’ The post should contain no more than 10 words. And definitely do not contain any pictures or maps. People have no time for long, well thought out posts. The shorter the better. If they don’t happen to be from the UK and haven’t heard of the route, they should go and research it themselves. It’s not your problem. Write in ALL CAPS and BOLD and in MASSIVE WRITING. HAVE I MENTIONED, YOUR THREAD IS THE ONLY SUGGESTION THAT MATTERS? You need people to know that by writing in ALL CAPS and BOLD. Also, you are doing a great service to members who don’t have good eye sight. Thank you for your consideration. Tag all the administrators. Yes, we know they read every thread and yes, we know they don’t like being tagged. But this is important. Your thread needs to be seen. NOW. Spam the thread in each forum. You could post your suggestion in the suggestions forum. But if you really want your thread to be seen and you want people to know how passionate you are about the suggested route, write a thread in each forum: PC Discussion, Xbox Discussion, PlayStation Forum, Technical reports. Maybe even the Fishing forum. YOUR THREAD NEEDS TO BE SEEN BY EVERYONE. Use the correct terminology: We need this route not want. Unlike all the other route suggestions in the forum, your suggestion is completely selfless and is for the good of humanity. It has absolutely nothing to do with the fact that it is your favourite route or you happen to live on said route. (Credit to forum member, FD1003) Be ambitious. Nearly all routes so far that have been released have a route length of approx. 50 miles. But don’t be put off. If you want a 400 mile route from London to Edinburgh, you say so. Don’t take NO for an answer! (Credit to forum member, Stujoy) Never return to the forum. Ok, so you’ve just created an account and you’ve made a suggestions thread. No doubt, some members may reply to the thread with questions or further suggestions. Don’t bother replying and better still, never return to the forum. PEOPLE LIKE SUSPENSE. (Credit to forum member, Stujoy) Always add a poll. Make sure it’s a leading question and double points if it confuses the hell out of everybody. For example: Do you think this is an amazing idea? Yes, Yes, Maybe. Now for an example. I saw this absolute gem yesterday. Be more like this guy.
