Hello everyone,

Right now there are two ways of suggesting features to Stencyl. One of them is by creating a topic in the Suggestion forum and another is the issue trackers. Oh there is also mini suggestion if you have a quick mini suggestion. However in all of these ways, the suggestion is written down, talked about, but  usually not implemented in Stencyl. Why? Because implementing a new feature takes time and work. I totally respect that. However I've seen certain suggestion that are great ideas and could make Stencyl a better software. But they are never implemented , not ignored,  just not added to Stencyl.

I understand Stencyl is very busy fixing bugs and it is a part time company ( I think ) but some great suggestions are just floating there. They are never implemented.  There needs to be a balance.  A part where suggestion are taken into hand but Stencyl is not being piled with request.

Solution :

A voting system on the forum ( for suggestions . Maybe something like uservoice. Where a user suggests a new feature and other users can vote if its a suggestion Stencyl should try implementing. And if that suggestion gets a certain amount of votes ( 50 or something ? ) , Stencyl will take off some time to add that feature to the Stencyl application. This way Stencyl isn't being piled with request but user can still have their ideas implemented into Stencyl.

App for this ?

Update: I think PHPBack would be perfect for this : http://www.phpback.org/ , its embedable with Stencyl site ( PHP which SMF is running with ) and it includes some great features, like especially the voting systems. I think it would work nicely with SMF.

But anyway I think this a great idea to have implemented suggestion and Stencyl could still have their own time.
