Quite a few feature requests get made in the Forums, some practical, most of them not; and while it's a shame to be negative with anyone posting for the first time, it is often necessary to point out that (forinstance) adding a timer to the menu options so users can keep an eye on their eggs in the morning* will only benefit a small number of users / means spending money rewriting bits of 14+ platforms / and doesn't actually seem likely to earn any cash for the Big Green. Occasionally though, suggestions get made that could actually add to the usability and popularity of the product; and maybe if enough users said "Timer, yeah!" it would be worth the Powers That Be thinking in more depth about their whole approach to the subject of domestic culinary accessorisation. We have the time-honoured +1, and the occasional busy thread, but there's no real way to prioritise good ideas over the rest. I have seen other feedback fora use a voting system - listing all the suggestions and allowing users to bump one or another up higher in the list as they see fit. How about having a similar thing here? Then any new feature requests could go into a new Forum section specifically for that purpose, and rather than gathering a few negative comments and an occasional +1 the idea can get voted up or down a list of suggestions by us chickens - kind of like the Dev Cup for ideas. BG can concentrate on looking at the top few, and honour is served all around. And the devs can stop reading all the threads in search of inspiration. That's possibly a hefty bit of Forum development work there, unless it's a standard feature, so I won't expect anything soon. But I thought it worth putting the comment out there. * And I made that one up, OK? It's just an eggsample.
