Do what you feel needs doing Brad. You are the creator of this game, but if you hate it - how motivated are you going to be to keep working with it? First and foremost ya gotta keep yourself motivated. That's the hardest part of being a creator. Add all the criticism that comes w/putting stuff out there and its real easy to lose that motivation.
Lots of people have good ideas, and many others are highly motivated - very few manage to have both qualities together.
As long as you still love the game, you'll keep working on it, because its plain old fun - so keep the game in a state where you love it. We'll all benefit because the game will keep growing. Your love for working on the game will naturally result in more work being done on it. Not saying not to listen to customers, they come up w/good ideas some times, compromises, alternatives - and some times they might even change your mind about something, so keep the dialog going, but in the end - never let the game become something you dislike or we'll all lose out if you lose interest in it and working on it becomes laborious rather than a labor of love. Make it not only a game you like, but a game that you love, whatever that entails.
