Did Bethesda really invite fan suggestions in mid 2013 for Fallout 4?Edit
For years the Bethesda Forums have maintained an "Official" suggestion thread for fan ideas. The purpose of this thread is not to solicit fan ideas, but organize those that are coming in anyway.
This topic is for a friendly discussion of ideas and suggestions for Fallout 4. This thread is so that we can keep all the discussion in one place.”— Bethesda Forums boilerplate comment put in every single suggestion thread
As per Bethesda Forum policy, all threads are closed at 200 posts. Being a popular topic, a similar topic is posted again almost immediately after the previous ones closure, by a forum moderator.
All forum moderators are volunteer members of the forum community, and are not Bethesda/Zenimax staff. They do not speak for any Bethesda/Zenimax group company in any capacity. (The exceptions are those identified as community managers, such as Gstaff and Nick Breckton).
Sadly, this story has been alleged a number of times by an online news site clearly unaware of how the Bethesda forums work.
