Game message randomness++

When I attempt a task, I am sometimes struck that the reason for failure or success message is the same all the time. For example: Task failed: You accidentally uploaded an outdated star map.

Would it not be a good idea to allow players an area in CORETECHS where they can co-create - write messages for task success or failure. If there were 20+ different messages per task in the database, chosen at random at task outcome, that would be quite nice - especially given that the game is story based and every time you have exact same answer, it smacks of robotic gameplay.

Messages will need to be approved / sanity-checked, of course, but the person in charge of these things would not have to invent those messages by themselves.

Of course - similar principle could be employed for other messages too when it is clear that this bit is successful.
