Do developers check ideas corner?

Just wondering whether they do, and if they consider fan ideas for the Sims 4. No problem if not, I know they’re very busy.

    I would like to say that they did but there are many great ideas that never seem to be able to make it into the game :(

    You’re most likely right, but it is a shame. I was hoping someone would see mine :(

    I do know that sometimes you might see someone from the EA community managers posting in the threads giving their agreement and such in post. So it's quite possible that they might also pass certain ideas to the development team.

    Interesting. I had a look at a few recent threads in ideas corner, and couldn’t see any comments by Sim Gurus. However, if they do sometimes comment then maybe they are reading the threads.

    They have probably indeed looked at the ideas corner much more than they used to. In fact a lot of what came out of Jungle Adventure was drafted by a simmer in that section. In the past they've actually not bothered looking into feedback at all or only when a new pack just released and/or it's a gamebreaking issue. I feel like with new management around now they may be paying more attn to those areas more than they used to.

    Interesting! Do you know the thread title of that jungle adventure thread in ideas corner was? I’d be interested to look at it and compare how similar the finished game pack came out.

    They might once in awhile but probably don't have time. I think that is what the community manager is supposed to do and relay those wishes to the different teams.

    They might sometimes have a quick scroll through; the development team probably won't check it a lot due to the reasons of them being busy, a lot of ideas are similar, and, I don't mean to offend, but there aren't a lot of elaborated or 'good' ideas.
