That's a terrific idea.Pony99CA wrote:If you want to publicize it, why not put it in rotation with the "Scam warning", "Spam trouble?" and other "mini-ads"? Create a "Have an idea?" mini-ad that links to the phpBB Ideas area.

In order to properly move towards community-driven software, more people need to be taking part and that can't happen unless the ideas system is properly endorsed and marketed.
Endorsement: A publicly documented criteria of: When an idea becomes 'popular' , when it would be 'up for discussion' , and potentially guarantees that a certain feature would be implemented into the core once it reaches x% of approval with a minimum of x votes.
Marketing: 3 key locations. phpBB Homepage, phpBB forum index and phpBB ACP. Ideas system needs to be implemented in these areas to maximise exposure, encourage community ideas and increase the votes so that a proper consensus can be established.
Maybe you should post that in the ideas center.MarkTheDaemon wrote:why not have a module on the dashboard page that is taking a feed from the blog/announcements forum?
Agreed, until you can promote it within the software itself like WordPress does on their admin dashboard it's always going to struggle. Law of diminishing returns, the percentage of phpBB users who visit this site compared to the overall usage base is small, then even fewer people bother with the ideas centre.Martin Truckenbrodt wrote:Hello,
after several months the highest number of votes is 101 now. Sorry, but IMO phpBBs ideas is not a success story for phpBB.
I'm not wondering about it. Just one post. Not any kind of extra advertisement and support for it. For me it looks more like a alibi now.
with the original idea, is´s not the same....(...)... In the meantime you're welcome to head over to Area51, the central place for discussion about phpBB development.
What does that have to do with the phpBB Ideas area?
