Default Thread for suggestions on new things to add to PokerStars thru DN

I have not been in contact with Daniel Negreanu since Niagara, where he still seemed open to getting things done for the site immediately if he felt it was right and got the go ahead.

I still feel like there a few things to add to the site in regards to MSNL and HSNL cash game play that would be beneficial, and I would like to hear your suggestions in the hopes that this thread gets forwarded to Negreanu. He hasn't been playing 100/200 NL on Stars lately, so this seems to be the only way.

So, here is what I feel is a necessity:

- HU cashgames for 25/50 and 10/20 NLHE and PLO

Here are random things I thought of that are not a necessity, but deserve to be looked into:

- spreading cashgames SSNL through HSNL which involve an ante
- getting 6max "deep" tables spread at lower stakes than 25/50
- forcing a player to have the minimum buyin for a game to select the "open seat" option

and here are things that are totally random:

- an advanced software option that would allow a player to top off their stack whenever it dipped below 100bb
- mississippi straddles
- half PLH, half PLO games

Please add more suggestions (providing they are good) or voice support for something you see and approve of.

If this thread gets enough traffic we can shoot it over to Daniel and have him look it over and test some stuff out, now that the 25/50 deep 6max games have been running for a while and seem to get good traffic.

this is an aside, but for now I would like it if nobody send PM's. lets just focus on this thread, then we can PM the link to DN.

omg ante games please. deep games are cool and all, but the number one thing that needs to be done is increase the time that one can come back with less chips. make it 6 hours or something. no one will notice except for a select few at 2+2.

I would really like them to think about a new interface. Not really a feature as much as an overhaul, but the whole font/style/colors of the site really get me down.

It would also be sweet if it showed players cards once people were allin.

These are the only two things that I prefer about Full Tilt.

Every site has this but pokerstars. You can play HU 5k SNGs, or 40k NL/PLO, or 1k/2k limit but you can't play 25/50 at a HU only table. good stuff.

Haven't really played on Stars in a while, butif they haven't already, they need to address the shortstacker issue. So, Stars should,

-Increase the min buyin to 40bb
-Increase the wait time between rejoining a table and getting to buy in for whatever you want

I also think it would be great is they have an auto top-off feature where your stack could not automatically be refilled to 100BBs if it dropped below.

ante is a good idea, topping off 100BB stacks is not
