I emailed Luca Cipriani (who is mastrolinux on this forum) who responded that he preferred suggestions on the GitHub site
So that they forum administrators don't actually have to use the forum? Hmmm.
In view of Luca's reply to me here I am surprised by the first part of your comment.
I really prefer either Making one thread per suggestion? Maybe with "SUGGESTION:" in the title of each one.OrPosting on GitHub? The last one is best for me but I can understand many users are already used to the forum.So whatever the community prefer between the two options is fine.
It would be harder to glance at a forum thread and detect priorities, or who has been assigned to something, or whether it has already been completed or not. Much easier for things to slip through the cracks in the forum.
Yes, however GitHub (or any bug tracking system) is a more formal place where bugs (or suggestions) are raised. They are prioritized. ....It would be harder to glance at a forum thread and detect priorities,....
But the forum administrators SHOULD be using this forum every day, like we do,....
It probably would be helpful if the forum developers actually used the forum,....Not using the system you are developing is a bit like the designers at Ford driving around in Chryslers. Or, the developers of Windows all using Macs.
I don't understand why this argument is made over and over. YES Github provides a place where the developers can manage things formally. That does NOT have to mean that it is the primary place for starting or discussing suggestions. Proposed changes should be introduced and discussed here and if they have merit someone (not an ordinary user like me) can add them to the Github list.
Because that is exactly how bugs are managed in many projects large and small.
I agree the admins should spend more time on the forum so they can see the bugs themselvesbut a dedicated bug tracker really is the best place to manage and discuss this stuff.
