Well, the support forum exists and they try to resolve the issues as soon as possible. But as I see some users do not want to wait a bit longer than usual and report about their problems here and I can’t leave them without attention.
About this one
It’s a problem on the site, it should be votable and it will be when fixed.
For now we have only the following info from @bsayakhom:
Depending on the “level” you have (new user, trust user …), which depends somehow on how many badges you gained in the forum, or how many posts you already did, you will have a minimum of 4 votes and can reach 10 votes you can use in any of the proposed features.
If you want to change your vote, you can remove it and place it on another topic.
You as a Beta users have the access to both sections of the Forum while they are not. What would you like, to close the public part from you, I mean Betas? I do not think it’s a good idea.
Well, we decided to expand the boundaries and let all the users vote in this General section. At the same time you also have your private EA part where you can add specific to a testing area suggestions.
Mmm - OK - that’s your call … but, doesn’t that make matters rather confusing for you ? … especially if you have new and/or naive users asking for features that already exist - but which they’re unaware of - simply because they’re not sufficiently familiar with the software (I’ve noticed a bit of that in the comments by non-EA members).
And, doesn’t this now create a new category of user = one who can’t be bothered to use the support/help-desk site, who jumps into this forum - with ability to vote … compared with those patiently waiting for response from the help-desk.
I see it as a positive step to collect real market requirements and not only insider requirements. This way the requests become more representative to what the broad public wants, who buys the software afterwards. If a “naive” requirement comes in, no one will vote for it, or there will be some truth behind the request. This did not harm in context of other software products, and not every wish has to be fulfilled, if it does not fit to the current architecture. See Fuji support. Another positive effect is that all users feel involved, which impoves customer satisfaction.
