Of course!

Note: we've had a significant amount of ideas already posted and discussed before. There are a few things I won't do on the current server, like multiplayer puzzle boxes, for instance. But there are definitely still things we can add. I think I didn't add TNT until we had more than 30 boxes.

There also is plenty of stuff that needs work and I've thought about in the past:
- more storyline in the main tutorial. This probably needs an extended series built in the same style
- proper series for each category, or, something that automatically does that, preferably
- events?
- maybe some rewards for extra players, like how admins have gold bracelets now.
- lobby music boxes / jukebox

Maybe you could add something like Rocket League seasons where you get rewards according to where on the leaderboard you are.

What's the point of new features when there are no new boxes to play in?

We do this so you have something to complain about.

Inside the Box doesn't have enough players. We need some events that can get more interest in Inside the Box. Perhaps a competition of box-building or playing. We could hold a meeting about that in the locked meeting room in the nexus sometime (It would finally have a purpose!).

I also wish that there was some way to make different types of special boxes. For instance, I think that a way to make a string of boxes that create a story like the tutorial does would be nice. The problem is that it shouldn't just be stuck into the "New" category because that already has many boxes and a series would be hard to follow if it was spaced out in it.

Another special box I would like is a box with no floor like Tutorial Part 7, since that provides more opportunities for ideas.

Lastly, I also hope the tutorial storyline gets finished, and that the random block in the forest in the nexus gets a point to it.

Co-op puzzles would attract a lot of new attention and interest but, I believe that idea/work will go into the next project

I have a really nice box in the works and plenty of other ideas to make, but I am too busy working on other things. Hopefully I will be able to return to making boxes soon.

Just submit it. I usually review boxes that are submitted within a few hours. Especially if you ping me, you'll get feedback really fast. Be prepared to tweak it though, not many boxes pass review without touchups...

I figure out the pedestal a while ago. It made me realize the truth... 'It's all a lie..."
But.... sssshhhhhh, don't let the others know.

I like the way you did the 'spoilers' without actually giving too much away.
