No doubt the above (not poll sorted) aggregate data might fail to quantify wishlist topics which do have a poll (whereas many members often do not add a poll to their wishes, myself included of course). :-\
I never thought this child-board was meant as a list of demands but rather a list of wishes.
Surely it looks easier to demand Comodo to to provide feeback instead of promoting a wish and get preliminary support of a relevant portion of these forums members.
:-La But the latter might rather provide Comodo some more ground to acknowledge a wish whereas legitimate, technically feasible and reasonably compatibe with CIS overall design:
From that point onward it might be a matter of time and resources but these are not something members’ expectations or wishes can possibly change whereas it has not been the first time nonconstructive criticism raised so much controversy even in case of unplanned delays or when the changes did not fully meet members’ wishes or expectations (eg GUI revamp). :o
It’s true that there is a low number of replys and maybe a hight rate of stupid wishes. But time to time that I visit this forums I see some pretty dang good ideas and absolute no implementation or feedback from the devs.
I mean. If there are not that many of topics and some great ones like, for example,CIS4 - A Classic Vision Overhaul that are extremely well explained. I do also remember to see a lot of requests to icon change to another color or some kind of alert when some defense is disabled, for example.
I do also remember to see posts with high acceptance rate and unaccepted/not implemented to CIS.
Therefore, a small feedback from developers team would be much appreciated. An “Ok - we will implement”, “we will think about it”, “rejected” would be more thank enough to know that I’m/We’re not writing or postings ideas for no one.
is that members as a whole can cooperatively contribute to everybody’s benefit providing feedback in a relevant, constructive, and quantifiable way rather than taking a different approach and demanding Comodo to reallocate their resources only to provide wish-related “feedback”.
It might appear reasonable but devs taking their time to post feedback won’t get anything implemented (let alone wishes) whereas on the other hand if members take the effort to constructively promote their (or somebody else) wishes it would be no small thing to everybody’s benefit.
This could actually create a chance to gather quantitatively relevant member support and provide an easy way for Comodo to identify reasonably relevant wish candidates to eventually pour their resources into.
Besides I guess there obviously are way more members to post wishes than devs entitled to pre-emptively select them posting the likes of “Ok - we will implement” before such wish gather a significant support form members themselves.
Seventy is obviously a low figure compared to the average number of 240 online readers (whereas total members count is obviously way higher) whenever it provides a quantitative and verifiable information about members’ acceptance.
Even with higher acceptance it would be putting the cart before the horse to focus on member’s acceptance alone whereas legitimacy, feasibility and design-compatibility would be similarly relevant and obvious limiting factors and an easy guess in addition to time/resources related considerations (though I made mention of this already)
