This is just a suggestion,
A lot of people post in which “feature do you need” there wishes.
Some of them are solution for a problem which you already acknowledged and some are adding a option which find others also handy/usefull and there are some which would be possible rejected because of several reasons.
Al this is fine and not every wish can be granted and not every problem can be solved easy.
can there be made a “sticky” on top of the list in the header “which feature do you need” where all seriously considered wishes are listed?
(for instance by linking the request poste in that list.)
This way you avoid double requests or that people think nothing is happening.1
This same sticky system can be used for general errors people find and questions about if tool is working properly or not.( user error or system error or both) If its in the list of to investigate put the post link there.)
Use it as a read only and we users can see if something is stil in the process of improvement or solved. (just add “Solved” or “not viable/discarded” on the header if DxO is ended that topic.)
If any one is bumping into a question he/she can take alook at that list and see if his/her question is popped up earlier and solved. this way it is keeping the forum topics clean.
(and prevent interesting topics fade away in the row of new posts.)
