In 2002 there was a huge debate amongst gamers and publishers about the Ranger class.  All benefits of the class were gained at level 1 so it became the prime multi-class choice as well as the class with the least incentive to level up.  I toyed with a few ideas for my campaigns and even came up with an alternate system for favored enemy that closely resembled a rogues special abilities at high level.  I wanted to get other's opinions on what would be a good way to make the class better overall.  The opinion that was pushed most was granting the rangers more feats like a fighter's bonus feats.  I play tested that once, and it was a horrible mistake.  The changes that later came about in 3.5 took a hybrid view of ranger progression and powers.  These changes made the ranger much more balanced and enjoyable to play.  I can't remember how long I allowed this poll to run, but it took a while to get good comments and suggestions.
