Not including recent events, when should everyone have given up on PreBB or conversely, should people never give it up?
Maybe after the first couple of suggestions or the first couple of years following Big bang? When some players imagine the future of Maplestory, additions such as 5th jobs and beyond come to mind but there are also others who legitimately imagine the future to be in the past. I could go either way.
How requests are handled over time (no matter how ridiculous or difficult to implement) can show the difference between Nexon viewing the people playing as real customers or if they only think of the players as some kind of sheep or animals to be farmed.
