Submitting Feature Requests

Postby jps on Wed Feb 02, 2011 6:37 am

To help manage the recent volume of feature requests and bug reports, I'm trialing using UserEcho to organize them. Please submit your ideas and feature requests to http://sublimetext.userecho.com/.

Hopefully this will help me sort out which requests are the most popular, and have less of them drop through the cracks.

Just thought I'd all let you know that it's possible to reply to a comment already. This makes it easier to read what's going on. Currently I'm seeing a lot of backward comments.

You'll know if you're replying to a comment because the textarea displays below it and not above.

I think you need to make this topic sticky and close this forum.

I think that'd be a pretty silly idea. The thing UserEcho does best is just giving a rough idea of the most wanted features. Other than that it has VERY bad visibility for any suggestions or requests not on the first few pages, especially with completed requests not being removed. Getting that rough idea seems to be about the only thing UserEcho does well.

Aside from that it seems quite a few poor design decisions were made and it's not all that useful as a full time replacement for this forum. They could learn quite a few things from the StackExchange platform. Seems quite odd as it appears they were trying to directly rip it off in the first place. Perhaps they decide to make some dumb design decisions so it didn't seem like a 100% copy.

You can select "Opened" from feedback menu. Yes, visibilty of ideas that have less than 5 votes is poor but this works like a queue. They will get better visibility with time, when ideas that are before them are marked as completed/declined. So when an idea is good it may be slow to move up but it will eventually get to the top.

The thing that could improve this page is Jon making use of "Active: Under review", "Active: Planned" and "Active: Started" marks.

BTW. No need to close the forum in my opinion but making this topic sticky is not a bad idea.

Oh, I know with a lot of work and struggling you can make it useful. I just doubt your average end-user ever bothers to do so. It's defaults are utterly useless unless you have a very low traffic project. Then all the terrible design decisions don't really come into play. It'd be like if on SO it defaulted to sorting questions by most answers and views. The site might as well not exist. It honestly baffles me how they made half the decisions they did. My best guess is they were necessary because of legal issues or something as it seems they charge for some services.

The only downside of user echo is the topics are sorted by number of up votes by default.
That causes new threads to get lost, take a while to get seen and loose input.

Fortunately that is a setting which can be set by the forum admins: http://feedback.userecho.com/topic/5427 ... for-forum/

If user echo sorts topics by Last Updated by default the it would work exactly like the forum, but with notifications, votes and better design.

Then just prevent new topics on the Technical Support, Features and Ideas in the forum and leave it for reference.

It is very chaotic like it is right now.
