    It would be very beneficial to have a bug tracker tab in the resource manager. This would make it easy to check if a resource has many open bugs or not.
    It would also make it easy for developers to keep track of what issues need to be addressed for upcoming releases.

    Yes, suggestions would naturally be possible under the same setup.

    To bring this back.

    What about being able to mark a reply as suggestion or bug. In a table you could save threadid,postid,type

    and fetch and show the specific posts in extra tabs.

    You could even think about a extra column "fix/implemented" in the own table, then the addon coder would be able to manage them and mark the suggestions/bugs as fixed/implemented

    Currently some addon discussion threads already have over 3000 replies. Its extremely hard to check if bugs, feature requests and questions have been addressed before. XenPorta for example has 161 pages of replies. Its pretty hard to find something in there. Search only works if the same words have been used to describe the issue. If synonyms or paraphrasing has been used in a description then search is not too useful.

    It would be a big step forward if the RM would display bugs, suggestions and questions.

    Once a user posts a bug in a thread, the addon author should then be able to transfer that post to the bug tracker with a click of a button.

    Once the bug is fixed the, the post would then be marked as "fixed". Duplicate bugs reported in the thread could also be marked as "duplicate".

    If you want this suggestion implemented then please like the first post.

    Maybe to expand on this, an "Issue Tracker" to allow labels to be applied to suggestions such as "bug" "Feature request"

    This sounds like a good idea.

    Super necro but I would love to have something like this and would pay good money for an addon that did it.

    I feel like this is connected but it'd be cool to, at the very least, get a second discussion thread. Keep the current one called "Discussion", then another thread for "Bug Reports". The ability for the resource author to soft-delete posts (delete non-bugs) would be a bonus but I understand that'd get into changes to the thread and post permissions and everything.
