Now that I am glowforging away (glowforaging?) I have many things that I see would be good additions. I come and search for someone asking for that feature request (FR) so I can add to an existing discussion, to often find that there was a thread but now it is closed.
For example, in uploading things my upload screen quickly got cluttered so I wanted to see if Folders were already a request. I found a thread where it was opened by a requestor, several piped in within a few hours and it was closed by the staff within 6 hours.
When a FR is closed does that mean there is seen as no room left for discussion? Once something gets into the mythical hopper (or someone “making sure the team sees it”) is that it? It seems closing a FR doesn’t allow for understanding demand. Would 10 people like that feature or 1000? Would that change the priority of it for work by the dev team? With such quick closure, how are they to know?
If I have a FR and I find a closed topic, do I start a new one to add my voice/vote or just see that it was acknowledged and closed weeks/months/years ago and say nothing?
I’m not wanting to rock the boat, being so new to the community, but want to see what the best way is to add my voice/vote to FRs I am interested in, or if adding my voice/vote to closed FRs is not allowed or encouraged.
