something better for feature requests..

Something like
http://gallery.menalto.com/sfvote

You submit your feature idea, it can be discussed within the thread, promoted, voted on by anyone interested.

And its easy to see the arguments for and against. and which feature requests are most popular.

I think it uses sourceforge, but no reason something like this cant be implemented.
there is a drupal module which offers the same:
http://drupal.org/node/31649

Workflow:
1 new user posts his idea into brainstorming group.
2 people discuss/flesh out the idea or point user to existing feature request
3 if its a new idea, then user can put in feature request and promote discussion/voting...

You gotta be kidding! This is your contribution to this thread, fading two weeks ago? A plug for the "new" Brainstorm? I guess that's too bad for the five previous Couchers that responded favourably...

Since the focus of the "old" Brainstorm, with 633 members, has not changed what is it that this "new" group, with 22 members, has to offer that differs in implementing an idea, a "storm of the brain", if you will?

"Please let's work with this!", Donna? For those who truly were interested in "working with this", I would think UNITY would supercede DIVISION. Now, we've yet another group to dilute any ideas (in addition to QvQ) but, hey, this one has the support of...you. Not unlike the "original" Brainstorm. "BS" Redifined, indeed!

Shame on you people trying to take our ball and going home....

I think the idea is pretty cool. It's not the first time it's been been brought up though. There was mention of combining it with a pledge for donating a specific money if the feature is implemented, which is pretty cool. I think I'll propose it elsewhere when the time is ready. :)


ALIEN1> that this idea will be diluted among tones of post not related to the original idea.

What does your post add to the original idea?
