Prominently display a link to "Wordpres Ideas" ...
...on the WordPress.org/com homepages and in the backened of WordPress installations.
This shouldn't be something people have to look for or discover by accident. WordPress/Automattic needs to more aggresively seek feedback from ALL users rather than just power users/nerds like us :)
There's a 'plan' in mind for this section.
What about the latest ideas on the WordPress dashboard via and RSS feed.
Would get me here more often, keep forgetting this section exists!
FWIW, the ideas forums are for Core suggestions, not site design ;)
Well obviously there is a need to talk about more than Core suggestions, so the scope of WP Ideas should probably be expanded.
I'd say, let's put it to a vote, but evidently we're not allowed to do that. Do you see my point?
booruguru - I don't understand the attitude here :/ It sounds like you're angry. I hope I'm just miss-reading this.
The ideas forum is for the intention of sharing ideas for primarily WordPress core (that's why we have a 'Not Core' category you see). But you'll notice this post isn't closed, just filed as 'not core' and moved out of the way of ideas for the code in WordPress.
I agree, Ideas should be more promenant, but I also think it needs one heck of a facelift (do over even) to make it a useful tool :) It's a messy hodgepodge right now!
No, I wasn't upset. Sorry if it came across that way. I was just saying that there needs to be a place to discuss miscellaneous topics.
...I noticed that there is a "Not Core" category after posting my previous reply.
Anyway, sorry again if there was any misunderstanding.
I think we're good :D
The 'Not Core' section still has open posts since.. there really isn't a better place :/ The only better place to talk abotu weird stuff like this is over drinks.
