and then i thought
I appriciate anyone having a lot of thoughts, but this place here is the devs channel, that should not be spilled with viewiness.
I am not a developer (and I have thoughts too).
Exactly thats why it is now all in one topic,
in that way there exist some thing like a bridge between users and developers with out desturbing them in theyr development topics, but also not disturbing the forum at all by opening 1000 topics for each idea that every one has at least twice
such a bridge between users and developers is a offer to both, developers can collect ideas, they dont have to read or code every idea, but maybe they get a inspiration and on one idea they will say "this is cool", "i need it too", "i do it". In the other hand users can dream of new stuff and they can present theyr ideas here and hope theyr idea will be seen.
This is a good way to interact between users and developers, it joins them together on ideas and the possibility to get seen.
Of course developers have no time and they have a lot to do, so i think its clear to any one, it is not a "you must do" topic. its just about ideas and exchange of ideas, to developers it can be a source of inspiration or just a statistic about what users whish.
To users it the possibility of beeing heard by developers, its like a sign that they even care about users, may its even a motivation to users them self to get active on the one or other idea.
i have not only thoght about it, i have thoght a lot about it, may still not enough
as i said before i saw this system on other boards too and the one i metioned above did work well.
They may have a other update system or frequency, so they open a new whish list for each major version of the program. I think this would be too much and it also would be too much pushy for the developers wich just do it for free, if then.
But i always thoght this is a realy fantastic way of geting developers and users together, not just as a individual F1 help file (How does work, how can i, new to buzz, renew to buzz, see the topics), but also by giving back what users can give back, at least funy ideas
Users will see, may later than sooner, there is a possibility some developers will be interested, the project is alive, users are welcome, ideas and creativity is welcome.
Even if it is just a thin feeling, it can be motivating to what ever can happen with ideas.
as i see the situation right now, just drom distance
Every new idea is a own topic, bloating the forum, some new ideas are in the developer section, some in the user section, some... who knows where?
The interaction between developers and users (some are of course both) is mostly on the basis of "where is midi", "i am new where is", "i am back where is midi", "where is vst", "does buzz buzz", i mean there is nothing wrong with that, what else is a forum for?
But i also think developers deserve more than just typing code and beeing the new living F1 in a board where every one seems to know how boards can get messy
In other boards where i saw similar topics, it can be realy soo boring, some ideas may appear on every topic site, such a topic can, depending on the application usage, get thousand pages in one topic
, some ideas are realy outstanding brilliand, others are just a inspiration, some times users come up with totaly new ideas and they lay ot all out and you will ask your self how it comes you have not seen it before your self, some times its just absurd, funy, silly or even tragic
in the other hand, here i see topics about some specific stuff and in them new ideas about other new stuff and then on the edge of some thing it may turns back to the topic as it is given in the title,may not.
Such new ideas could end up here, it is may less necessary to break a topic with new ideas.
Of course every new idea has some pros and cons, such a discussion would not be at the wrong place here, as long the specific idea does not flee into a own topic, because it may is a realy interesting idea and some developers may realy plan to do it.
So i think in the case of buzz which is only used by one half of the world population one such topic is enough, it has not to be a section that gets in it self messy, and it has not to be in the user section, just because the ideas are for the developers, and its not necessary to renew the topic with each buzz version or season or what ever.
Even if no developer cares, the users will place theyr ideas here and do not mess the board, with thousand topics about viewines in every section of the forum.
