As of this posting, there are Suggestions in the “Under Review” section that were posted a year ago. I personally have several suggestions I made in good faith that would help improve the site that have been lounging in there for some time with no update. This should be a great way to make community members feel more valued; however, it is having the opposite effect when all we get is lip-service.
A couple of suggestions for improvement:
a) Honesty up front if something won’t get implemented. Explain why, and send it to the “dismissed category”.
b) Mandatory updates on each thread that is currently “under review”. Maybe at 1 month intervals. Even if there is no material update, just something indicating that it is still actively being reviewed. And if it is not, go back to step (a).
Just these two simple things would go a long way toward making this a better community tool. The way it is now, it’s an abyss, and there’s almost no point in making suggestions (I do see the irony of this post, but let a man dream).
