Not to nag or anything, but is there some kind of fixed schedule based on which popular suggestions are implemented (or at least looked at)? Or does it just happen once in a blue moon?

My experience has been that DreamHost has been quite good at implementing suggestions. Each are ranked according to how difficult they are to implement, and highly-popular features are every few months or so. There has been a tendency over the last year or so to implement features that are going to attract more business, such as multiplying the amount of storage space and bandwidth. The most recent examples of this (in my opinion) are the new Flash-based widgets.
