Suggestions for "Bigger Features" are often Add-on Requests. New Public Forum needed ?

    In the non-customer "Public" forums, there are two options to make suggestions:

    Suggestions: Tweaks & Small Features
    Suggestions: Bigger Features

    Unfortunately with only these two options, many Add-on Requests are being filed in the "Bigger Features" section. Would it be a good idea to add a

    Addon wishes forum ?

    It might make the "Bigger Features" section more useful.

    Does anyone really believe a Classifieds Section is a good idea to add to the core of xenforo (Bigger Suggestion) ... or was there no other place to express the desire for a Classifieds addon ?

    New forum ?

    No. Many non-customers are posting Addon requests in the "Bigger Suggestions" BECAUSE they don't have access to that forum.

    I've said it before, one person's core requirement is another's add-on, and vice-versa.

    I think what he's saying is, he can't request an add-on because he's not a customer and so, not allowed to post in that forum. So instead, he has to request add-ons in the request-features (core requirement) forum, when really he just wanted to request an add-on - not a core function.

    (But, I could be wrong.)

    Notwithstanding the inability of non license holders to post in the customer forums, I think he's saying that some of the threads posted in the suggestions forum would be better off in the add-ons forum as in his opinion they do not warrant being core features.

    Essentially, anyone is free to suggest something as a core feature as it is Mike and Kier who will decide what is/isn't included, based partly on the feedback from the community.

    If these suggestions are posted in an add-ons forum then they will never be considered for inclusion in the core.

    People are not requesting Classified should be a part of the Core. Most people know that is not a reasonable request. Please don't say it is a reasonable request and that Kier and Mike can decide. People post obvious addon requests in the "Bigger Modifications" section because there is no other choice !

    If I wanted a Classifieds Section ... where would I Post it ?
    • XenForo Pre-Sales and Feedback (no it isnt a feedback)
    • Suggestions: Tweaks & Small Features (no it's not small)
    • Suggestions: Bigger Features
    • Implemented/Resolved Suggestions (cant post here)
    • XenForo Bug Reports (not a bug report)
    Only option left is: Suggestions: Bigger Features

    Q: Can the addon requests forum be moved to the Public Forums ?
    Wouldn't addon developers want more information about current and incoming member's interest in addons ?

    Maybe the Paid members section could have a "Custom Coding" request section ?

    anything have i have ever wanted or suggested has been dismissed as more fitting as a hack, so i dont really see the point either way.
