Okay, this is getting massively off topic.

A final word from me before I drop out of this conversation. We have several people in the community that started out as forum goers or whatever and have obtained trusted positions within the community. They did this by providing assistance and help that the developers valued and they were conferred additional responsibilities. At this point they are fairly well known to the community here and newcomers run into them very quickly. Their names are also highlighted in some way on the forum. If you feel that you have not received your due recognition, then consider the differences in how you contribute compared to how they contribute. While the project appreciates efforts to help it, it should go without saying that there are types of efforts that we appreciate more and thus reward accordingly. This is not to diminish the contribution of those that don't get such public recognition as others, but frankly, you should not need constant accolades to motivate you if you believe in this project.

What do you think about this idea?
Yes, a mixup of a wiki and a tracker would be great to manage suggestions (it could be also interesting to have a driven procedure that fits the needs of "the scheme")...

I think it might be like follows:
1. the flowchart in that wiki
2. a part which can't be modified by non-devs, where devs (or someone in charge) puts the "semi-approved" ideas (it means, devs will discuss if it will be used, but it seems to be a good idea).
3. a part which can be modified by anyone, with the suggestion.

AND sorry for murdering the english language :P

You guys know that's just duplicating the functionality of the forums?

If something like this will be implemented, then we don't need the "Suggestions" section anymore (we could keep feedback, BTW).

This probably would not be implemented.
