New Suggestions System
Short, concise description of the idea
A whole lot of great suggestions get left uncoded and then forgotten. Many of these suggestions that recive a lot of support in their comments area die soon after because no one picks them up.
Full description of the idea
reading back to see if my suggestion has already been posted, I came across sevral great suggestions, that everyone agreed were great ideas, but nothing was ever done about it. a perfect example is the new LJ comm tag, suggested over and over, never implimented until now. What I'm suggesting is a coalition between suggestions, lj_dev and perhaps [Unknown LJ tag]. When a suggestion starts out in suggestions it will be commented on, as normal, by users who will argue out it's merits. Instead of going into memories, it will go into a page similar to memories(or an enhanced memories) that states the idea in a simple manner and weather or not the idea was supported in the suggestions forum. If the idea is rejected, it's left at that. If accepted, the LJ dev crew can start work on it, which leads to the next part of the suggestions development. On this enhanced memories page, it will say which user has picked up the task and the percentage done, all the way through implementation. once it makes it into changelog and the feature is fully implimented and the memory is updated to show that it's in place, and possibly linked to a FAQ to show how the new feature works, if applicable.
