@George_Toledo — Rather than a flat-out “majority rules” system, ideally what we’d like to see is people not just stating opinions in favor or against, but explaining why they want something. That’s why the community agreement goes further than just “criticize ideas not people” and says “when criticizing, we discuss specific points.”
When 8 people strongly support an idea and 5 people strongly oppose it, that alone doesn’t help the dev team or the voting community make an informed decision. Rather, we appreciate seeing comments like @Joëlle’s above describing the utility of different color coding schemes and weighing the pros and cons and alternatives. Or (the rest of these are hypothetical): “The MM.Time nodes are really helpful for basic timeline stuff, so I’d like to see those incorporated into Vuo.” Or on the spline mapper feature request: “I used an equivalent patch in QC to do such-and-such projects.” Or on a new discussion: “How would I recreate this QC composition with timeline animation in Vuo? Would such-and-such node simplify it?”
Reminder to everyone — When you make requests through the bug reports and feature requests system, that helps make sure that good suggestions are remembered instead of being buried in more recent posts.
