    Lateley some staff members have said that cube is working on updates at some games. I was thinking that we actually don't know anything about the projects that developers/staffs are working on and how long it will take. So my suggestion is: Adding a To-do list. You can see all the projects where developers/staffs are working on, how much % they've done to complete it and how long it probably will take to complete the update. So as example:
    Assassins update: 20% complete, About 4 months untill release
    Custom shields: 70% Complete, About 3 months untill release
    (These are just examples, I don't know how busy staff is working on the updates and how long it takes).


    Members get more involved on what cube is working on by checking the To-do list and when someone asks when the update will be released, you can say that he needs to check the To-do list instead of saying 'Soon'.

    I don't think they can give you percent completion :p And they probably don't want to take the chances of putting out even a broad release date as if they don't release it then people will be disappointed.

    Nah, look if there are Members who are going to look and see that Custom shield is 90% complete, about 1 month until release. Then Members are going to say work harder on Custom shields because then it's done. So then the Developers have to do what the Members wants because otherwise the Members are going to be mad.

    They said that factions would be released at the early summer, so they don't need a To-do list to disappoint Members. But now they say that there's an assassins update comming, but we don't have any clue when it will be released. It's frustrating to wait, while you have no clue about how long it will take. I know that people can get disappointed, but with or without a To-do list it happends. But staff can adjust the 'about ... Months untill release' so people do know when it's taking longer.

    No. People can try to force staff to complete the update, but if the updates is planned for a release over 1 month, they'll have to deal with it.

    Maybe not the %.
    But it would be nice to show what is being worked on and maybe even like this:
    PROJECT: Freebuild
    Amount of Developers: 2

    PROJECT: Assassins
    Amount of Developers: 1

    Most members get surprised when a new game is released/fixed so what you have to think about is the members being so happy when it gets released.
    For Example: I am having a horrible day and EggWars is so buggy ._. When will they fix it??? Then I go on the forums and see the big thread says EggWars Update and it is mind blowing to see all the bugs getting fixed :)

    I don't think they might do this. If it goes and slowly increases abut suddenly stop at 87% or have a minigame that's at 0% people will begin to question what happened. Also, having this would mean that developers would have to rush to get it out and ready to the players. You know what that means... Bug glitches everywhere... I'm guessing we all know the quote "Quality is better than quantity"

    Also remember that some of the developers have a life, school and job they need to focus on ;)

    So you're saying that because they promissed an assassins update, but not when, they can take as long as they want to update it, but with a To-do list they have to hurry? Because that's just crap(i'm sorry for being so hard). And the % doesn't really need to be added, that's why it's a suggestion :).

    What I mean by rushing it's more like pressure. If a minigame or plugin is 89% complete but it stops increasing, people are going to message staff members and admins to see when it is coming out? Most staff members arnt allowed to say when a certain updates come out as if it's passed the official date it's released, people are going to be mad that the update never came. Take Freebuild for an example...

    That's why it says 'About ... months untill release'. If it takes to much more time then expected, staff can adjust it to more months.
