Yes exactly, its a completely different game but has some good concepts that could be added to M&F without diluting its originality.  I am looking forward to the further developments and think it would help with retention if  you occasionally posted some of your long term plans or aspirations in more detail as it may throw up some great brainstorming ahead of implementation.

I split this off - I'd like to share more of my thoughts, but in a more organized fashion.

Does anyone feel like organising something like a monthly IRC event for dev questions or something like that?

We can have a monthly thread everyone in the forum can participate in, then after some days of active Q&A it closes.

I'm totally not against ripping off Dwarf Fortress's "Future of the Fortress" series, where questions about where the game is going get answered on a semi-regular basis. I don't know how frequently it'd have to be done though, or how many questions wouldn't simply get answered before that time frame. It'd have to have some rules, becuase a lot of simpler things would just get answered in the forum.

I like the idea of 'the future of M&F' suggestion.

Personally I would prefer it to be a forum thread (as I seldom manage to be on irc in time...I forget, am not at the computer or something else intrudes...)....moderated if possible so that it is not derailed 6 times daily.

I agree with Tan, im never able to stick to logging in at a particular time, normally work and kids dictate my accessibility.
