I'd be interested in hearing advice on this, all the same

I'd have to say I disagree on that particular point; players sometimes have good game ideas, but I don't think they necessarily make particularly good developers. The ideas that a player comes up with often come in the form of something like "a game just like MyFavouriteGame, but with ThisParticularWeapon added to it", where they player has noticed something they would personally like to try out, but may not have considered how it will affect the balance or direction of the game as a whole -- sure, it might be fun to add rockets in to the shooter you've been playing, but unless it occurs to you to re-design several of the maps to compensate you might suddenly have a broken game where rockets allow the players to take out a wall and skip to the end.
But the best of developers are the players themselves!
