There are literally hundreds of posts in the suggestion section of the forum, and I have a feeling nobody from the SWTOR development team looks at them. I think feedback from the test servers get attention, but not the suggestion section. If I am right, does that mean the suggestion section is useless?

Nope. It is just there to make you feel better.

Far from it! We do read the suggestions forum frequently to get a better idea of what players are asking for! We're not often able to comment about what might be coming in the future (and suggestions, by their nature, are mostly related to future content), which means we may post less in suggestion threads. However, we are definitely always reading it and the other forums to get information about what players want!

They're called the Suggestion Forums for a reason. To discuss cool ideas in the CHANCE that they will be implemented into the game. It's like making a wish. Just because you think your idea is amazing doesn't mean it'll be implemented. The forums are there for ideas, not certainties.

You'd think feedback from the pts would get attention, but sadly this is rarely the case.

They may take a suggestion and implement it but I read somewhere a while back that they dont post there because then the OP can claim to some monetary compensation if Bioware implements his/her idea(s) and has proof that Bioware might have taken that idea from him.

Player: "You guys should implement this into the game, I think it would be great!"
AllissonBerryman: Great idea! Ill forward this to James Ohlen right away!"

6 months later...

Lawyer: My client is demanding $10,000 compensation for his idea which you implemented on the latest patch of the game, which we have proof you took on this day."

/shrug ... makes sense to me.

Of course they read each and every one of them!
And I come to a complete stop at all stop signs and red lights, and never speed. Least, that's what I'd tell my insurance company.

It doesnt seem so. From early development on, there was a general refusal to listen to the playerbase. I suspect the game might be in better shape now if some of the suggestions had not been ignored

guess they must have discussed the 17.000 threads and over 120.000 posts in the suggestion box in a 12 hour internal expansion update meeting...
