Nice snarky attitude. Not like I am demanding anything here from the dev team.. Let me explain.
I thought it was allowed to come with suggestions
, as to make it easier to see for the public what ideas may
be included into the core in the future, and what isn't. If/when possible.
It would be very nice
to see more into the future scope of the software, as to know what is planned for the platform. That's not
a demand, I'm just stating that it would be nice/useful/cool/interesting/[insert other positive word]. Obviously they won't be able to share anything that isn't planned, but I'd imagine several of the ideas in that section, may happen in 4.0, and many never will. (in which case they'd know either way).
I know that phpBB is a free software, everyone is lucky to be able to use this for free. Devs are using their free time to work on this, and people should be grateful. Any new feature happens when it happens, and if you want it faster, you need to contribute. That is known, and I never disputed that.
But that doesn't mean that users of the software can't come with wishes/feedback and hoping it will be included some day.
Also, I feel like underlining that this was also about removing
ideas that won't happen/unpopular/extremely old, to clean up the idea section a bit
So just some house-keeping. For example, Ideas that are more suited to be an extension, or out of scope of the phpBB core profuct (eg "we want a CMS system/facebook-social profiles in core"), can be "rejected
" as to clean up the "new" section. It shouldn't be there when it is obviously not happening, it's just unnecessary clutter.
(I would love to help with cleaning in the idea section, I have time and experience with mod duties.)

You mean the one that's burried 6 pages deep into the Top Ideas list
? A developer already commented on it back when it was suggested and would likely deal with it during the style revamp he's already working on for 4.0. I believe he's just keeping a list on his own of things he's going to be implementing, which is likely an overall more efficient approach.
1) There are several other ideas that have been implemented/in progress (a few there with 3-4 upvotes for example), with barely any votes at all. So that isn't definitive.
2) You filter by score, so it takes into account down-votes
as well (for example some ideas with quite a few up-votes, have almost as many down-votes, which would indicate that this may be a controversial idea to implement)...
There, it's page 3
on the "new" ideas, filtered by score. Out of 27
pages of "new" ideas, I would consider that near the top. (even when many others have been gathering votes for many years extra).
But anyway, that was just an example
, not like that's my most important topic.
So to recap, I was simply suggesting something that would perhaps make it more clear for the public on ideas and plans for the next feature release of phpBB, if "in progress", "rejected", was used more often. And it would be very nice if some of the very old ones, maybe were clarified if possible?
That was all, have a good day.
