This page is only for discussion of the Feature Requests page itself. This includes design of the page, the voting process and so on.


Intro Panel

This will be reinstated. It looks inconsistent not to have it I think.

Sponsorship?

  • I've removed the request for sponsorship of features. To my knowledge it has never been taken up. It makes the whole project look more commercial than it is - so it is doing more harm than good. Where we've had sponsorship it's in the form of a company that wants a variant of Audacity, and they have contacted Dominic directly. James 04:24, 25 February 2008 (PST)

Although we had an alternative Beta Feature Request system in place intended to make voting easier - there is some feedback on that system here - unfortunately the script that operated the system did not prove to be reliably available. In the longer term we may introduce a new more interactive Feature Request system on our main website.
