Was there an announcement about the voting on Feature Ideas changing from 30 to 100?

Jump to solution

I've noticed today that  @Renee_Carney ​,  @scottdennis ​, and Deactivated user​ have been going through archived feature ideas with the following information for those who might stumble over an archived feature idea:

77296_pastedImage_0.png84905_pastedImage_0.pngPanda-Cat: A mythical creature that we dreamed up to catch your attention, make you laugh, and encourage you to keep reading the explanation of our archive process for Feature Ideas

Archive: An archived Feature Idea is not dead forever, but it has been taken out of stage progression.  When Community members submit feature ideas they are reviewed by the Community Team and then put to a vote by the community at large. If the idea does not receive 100 votes within 3 months it will be archived.  Ideas that reach the 100 vote threshold within the first three months remain open for voting. Find more information about this process at How does the voting process work for feature ideas?

Can archived ideas still become a feature?  Yes.  Some feature ideas that do not receive 100 votes are resubmitted by Community members and find more supporters as people's needs change, rising more quickly to the top.  Oftentimes archived feature ideas are evaluated in groups when we are preparing to refactor a particular tool or feature of Canvas and may still influence product direction.

However, if you look at the bolded sentences in the above, you can see they talk about a 100 vote threshold. I was not aware of this as I was still operating under the impression of a 30 vote threshold. Did I miss an announcement about this or does this constitute said announcement?

Hi Mark,

Yes, the change was announced during the week of Instcon.  We updated How does the voting process work for feature ideas?​ and also had a global announcement up for a two days.  Sorry you didn't see the change until now.

I'm not sure when the official announcement was made, but the 100 votes is also on the following page - How does the voting process work for feature ideas? I checked the revision history and it looks like the update was made 1 month 3 weeks ago, at least to this page.

Thanks. Somehow I did indeed miss it.

I feel sorry for you guys having to go through all of the archived feature requests to do this. Hopefully you got somebody to script this for you rather than doing it manually. Smiley Happy

So far its a manual process, Mark, and we check each conversation, vote count, etc before we archive.

Trying to get people's attention during the week of Instcon, in hind site, maybe wasn't wise...  😕

Thas' Right!

Kudos to the first person who can name the boxer in this image!

Kudos to you, Adam.

This is a rather iconic image, and most do not know anything about it, let alone who the boxer is.
