Haha, thanks so much Murdoc and the rest of the Suggestions staff for honoring me by doing this, I am truly grateful. Needless to say, this is a remarkable achievement for me, and perhaps others as well, making it here, without actually winning a competition. I truly never saw it coming.
The fact is, as long as you enjoy what you do you'll always put your best effort to it - thinking of cool ideas for a game I once loved (and will always remember, as it has laid the foundations of my career interest) was never a chore and always a delight!
You see, many of these Hall of Fame ideas, were the original ideas that were made ages ago, from the beginning of RuneScape. As you said, not many have brought such thoughtful ideas since, but I was only able to think of all my ideas through the inspiration of these old ones, it made me believe that anyone can bring out plausible, if not amazing ideas that Jagex will actually put into their game, that any company might put into their game, that you can put into your own - what I'm trying to say is, it means so much to me that now I'm apart of those people that inspired others, new thinkers, like me, to begin.
As for the idea and the update that Jagex published in clear acknowledgement of my idea - who knows, it'll never be too late for the old Fire cape to get it's own update, any day now. Especially, considering the fact, that prior to the Kiln cape's update, it would've been unwise, as I agree, to update an older version of the most powerful cape in the game, to look better than the newest one, amirite? But not anymore, since they've updated the current best cape (so soon after it's release, thanks to me
), they now have room to update the next best cape, as well. I can imagine it matching the superior Fight Kiln cape much similarly, heck, just take away the shell and you've got a canvas of lava flowing down, trailing behind you. ;) (If this update does occur - I assure you, I don't work for Jagex xD >.>)
It's slightly comical too, out of all of Jagex's recent updates, many of which have brought uproars to the RuneScape community, full of debate as to whether the update was good... and then, the one time they take an update idea from a "player's prospective", it's a success! Remember the bank update? A player update. Success! Who has said anything negative about that verses the old bank? Noone. Who has said anything about the new Kiln cape? NOONE! Everyone loves it! :D:D:D:D In fact, I love it so much myself, it makes me want to play again just to get it, haha.
To the Suggestions team, especially Murdoc, which has been joyful in communicating with me amidst my stay here, for being such an awesome group, selecting these great ideas, bringing them attention and the appreciation they deserve. Every single topic in this collection of ingenious thought - put into each and every idea - all worthy of this section are nothing without you guys!
