As a message to everyone in support of this suggestion, I'll advice against falling into the trap of addressing those seeking to derail and destroy the thread in a sea of flak and roasts. Yes, I know, I do not command what you do, and being called a certain name just for wanting to play as a short character is indeed infuriating. But if the thread gets derailed because some detractor started hurling personal attacks expecting those here to send flak back, the feedback would be lost. So yeah, as uncomfortable as it would be, I'd personally just move past their one or two posts, rather than perpetuating their flak in an useless back and forth that would take a page or two and prompt the GMs to close the thread, which is the intention of those seeking to harm it and impose their way upon everyone.
Don't fall into the trap and let's keep discussing the topic at hand in a friendly manner. Others do have their right to post their opposition and their reasons to do so, and they are very welcome to do so in a respectful way. But when it escalates into personal attacks and flame wars, the best action would be to ignore and report.
Basically this. Or report them. People aren't supposed to come in here to say how "bad" this suggestion is anyway. You either agree or ignore it. If you really hate the idea of this thread, make a new suggestion about why the current height limit should stay.
People really ought to read the rules of the Ingame Suggestions.
"They are not debate points, and the purpose of this section is not to debate someone's opinion. Please do not put down the suggestions of others, even if you don't think it can be done for this game, as Sega does make other games where they could be implemented."
Still nice to see that the devs STILL do not give us an official response on this matter. This topic is STILL the most discussed in this area of the forums. Starting to wonder if they really care. And we never got that poll too.
