One of the unique benefits of being a Dreamhost customer is the power to suggest changes and improvements, then vote on proposed suggestions. Votes strongly influence what gets implemented by Dreamhost.
So, if you think Dreamhost should install new software, update policies, add a new feature, or make any other changes Dreamhost Suggestions give you the opportunity to throw your idea out and let the rest of DH customers vote on its merit. Neat, eh?
In your Web Panel from the Home menu click on the Suggestions link. From there you will see an overview explaining how to make suggestions and voting procedures.
Voting is credit based. DH customers each get 40 total credits, plus 1 credit per month since they signed up. You can use your credits to vote once per suggestion, either for or against it (against votes always only cost 1 credit). Much like DHSOTMs tit-for-tat policy, you will need to help screen 5 other user suggestions before submitting your own.
You can also view Suggestions that won enough votes and were implemented by Dreamhost. A quick peek through these and I see that some valuable policies and changes have come through customer suggestions. For example: recently Dreamhost changed its policy so that current customers pay the same rate as new customers.
