This thread will remain until April 15th, at which time, the suggestions will be discussed by the moderators and administrators. Moderators and administrators may choose to ask other members about their opinions or reasons for wanting certain changes. The process will be reviewed at that time to decide what will happen in the future. People will still be able to suggest changes.
