I know one idea that players have vocalized (again no links. no time to dig them up ) is that these "Gold Only" ideas be linked to vet rewards, thereby requiring to have subscribed for X number of days to prevent exploitation.
Except that the gold members he is talking about are the lifetime subscribers who pay $300 in one shot.
