This was just a first round of items that we knew wouldn't be an issue. Things like ecumenical keys and the rest of the things you suggested are controversial and either wont happen or need more thought put into their potential effect. I think ecumenical keys would be really cool to put in. But effigies, big nono.

This ^

Also we were already planning these additions before the community discussion thread went up. Just because we've made these additions doesn't mean we're done now and everything said in the community discussion will be ignored.


Add a poll maybe? With options like
Add ecumenical key
Don’t add ecumenical key
Add legends
Don’t add legends
Etc.

Also with the updated donor store the only problem I see with it is that you added already very circulated items right, so either it could crash the price of these items (somewhat unlikely but still possible) but my big issue with it is what’s the point?? If you wanted a ‘perfect ring it would actually be cheaper to donate for mboxes and sell them quickly then it would be to buy it. This is the same with most of not all items added in this update. There is no “hey donate for me because I’m a good deal” item.

It isn't always as simple as adding a poll and majority wins. Have to keep in mind other things like game integrity and discontinued item issues.

The credit to gp ratio that Mike and Rapsey chose has kept all the items at pretty stable prices throughout the years. This is because when people are looking to get the most out of their money, they donate for the item that is going to give them the best rate. This drives the price back to whatever the gp amount associated with the credit amount chosen was. So price crashing is not really an issue. Can't really put in items that say "hey donate for me because im a good deal" because the price of the item will be driven down by this same effect.
I have had so many players that want to donate directly for the best gear. They cant be bothered with donating for mystery boxes and then converting it to cash to buy items. This offers donators to skip that annoying step.

Also, putting every single decision up to a community poll is an excellent way to make things take forever to get done. In many cases it's better to just decide and get on with it. Very few things can't be undone if it turns out to be a mistake. All these "new" donation items are good examples of things that didn't really need to be polled. They could all be bought off the Grand Exchange already anyway so it makes little difference that you can also buy them with credits now.

But yes, for actual new donation items I'm sure a few things will be polled.

We need to update the drop down section under the donate tab on the forums

We know, but the current layout is only suitable for a small number of items so we're gonna have to reinvent the way it's presented there. The plan is to first do all the donator shop additions and when we're done with that revisit the webpage overview.
