Where to submit Ideas?

Hi all. I've been all over the website many times and can't seem to find the best place to post or the best way to contact devs with good new original ideas and ship designs. I've got some designs and ideas just sitting around waiting to be used somewhere and I want to know if Cryptic is interested in them. Some of them have been collecting dust (as it were) for a while while others are more recent, and I'd prefer that someone get some use out of them rather than them never being used. Does anybody know the best place to submit them so they don't get buried or to contact the devs and send it directly to them? Any help is much appreciated!:D

    Should I just post the ideas here or do I need to do it more formal like?:confused:

    Ideas are free to share I think...
    You can post them here and ask others for their opinion. You might get good reviews, you might get bad reviews.

    Good luck ;) .

    For legal reasons, you can't / aren't allowed to submit ideas directly to Cryptic.

    The reason is, that if you submit an idea that gets rejected, and they then later use something that is similar to what you suggested, you might be able to file a law-suit for compensation, despite the developer/team who made it had never even seen your idea in the first place.

    Is it stupid? Yea... it is... But that's apparently how the US legal-system works.
    Don't look silly... Don't call it the "Z-Store/Zen Store"...
    Let me put the rumors to rest: it's definitely still the C-Store (Cryptic Store) It just takes ZEN.
    Like Duty Officers? Support effords to gather ideas

    Well then I guess I better get my ship designs ready and get them posted here on the forums. I already know I have to first upload them to an online picture site, like deviant art or photobucket (I already have accounts with both) and then link to them in the forum post. Thanks for the help.:D
