Are these Wish lists even monitored? Or are they just a dumping ground for Moderators to force us to put our ideas on? Does T10 review and hopefully considered anything players posts in those lists?
We can’t say for sure the level of monitoring Turn 10 allocates to the wish list threads; however, they do serve their purpose - whether they are looked at or not - to keep the forum largely clean of repetitive posts of the same nature. We do know that some of the most requested tracks and vehicles in those postings have made their appearance throughout the Forza series; so, take that for what you will.
If T10 does use the forums to decide which cars, tracks, or features to add - they are certainly not going to search for 10,000 different threads on what people want. The only chance of getting these requests noticed is to keep them all in one place.
Ideally if there was some easy way to get a summary of cars, tracks, or features that are requested, it would be easier for the developer to see what are truly the most demanded…
Would be a good start if people only had ONE post in the wishlist and edited them, and if they keep the post clean and simple without the extra waffle that just makes them longer and harder to read.
Yes? I asked three questions to which you gave one answer.
Are these Wish lists even monitored?
- Yes, they are monitored by Turn 10 Staff
Or are they just a dumping ground for Moderators to force us to put our ideas on?
- Moderators are volunteers who do NOT work for Turn 10 or MS. Part of our task is to keep the forum orderly and on-topic.
Does T10 review and hopefully considered anything players posts in those lists?
- Yes, T10 reviews and considers anything and everything posted in those lists. They also review and consider anything and everything set via email to email@example.com
There are currently 3,140 posts in the three “wishlist” threads. Do you really want a couple thousand separate threads with everybody’s individual “here’s what I want” posts? Don’t you think it makes a WHOLE lot more sense to put all of the wish posts into an appropriate centralized location?

Mr. Don, I completely see the need for these Wish Lists. I was just wondering if it were even worth my time to type up what I’d like to see change if T10 doesn’t even skim them.
As far as forums are concerned, this one is very neat and tidy. I know us forum users tend to be jerks, if you haven’t heard it, you mods are doing a great job and this forum looks great because of it. Thank you.
And thank you for the clear response. Now I am off to the wish lists…
Why I think people doubt those threads is people expect relatively quick turnaround from a wishlist entry into the game. So if the most requested car has not been added yet they think T10 are ignoring the wishlist.
The reality is the dlc we have just received was probably planned and on the production line not long after launch. Maybe even before.
Also some things requested may not be possible to deliver for various reasons including but not limited to licensing.
