There are a lot of excellent user-submitted suggestions in the control panel. According to the “completed suggestions” link, no new has been implemented since March 1st of the 2007. And apparently new user suggestions have not been submitted (or have not been publicly posted) since August of 2007. Since users don’t know how many people voted on any particular thing, we don’t know which is likely to be fulfilled first.
Some of the most basic suggestions have not been implemented.
So far, the suggestion box concept has been a good one, but why not take it a step further?
I’d sure like to see the following:
A method for users to see how many votes there are for each suggestion and a comments area for each suggestion where additional users may further comment as to why a particular suggestion should or shouldn’t be implemented. The first comment for each suggestion should be by dreamhost staff including a likelihood of implementation and why. Additional comments could then be made by dreamhost users.
