As you may have heard, the next version of Ubuntu Brainstorm (which can be seen at http://devel.ideatorrent.org/) will come around October. One of the main targets of this update will be to enhance the ideas quality.
As such, one of the upcoming features will be the Idea sandbox, an area where new ideas will be reviewed by moderators before going mainstream.
A major evolution of Ubuntu Brainstorm is on the way, and includes:
Already one million votes have been cast on ideas by Ubuntu users! Whoah! At the moment, ideas at Ubuntu Brainstorm can concern any project, Ubuntu-related or upstream. That's nice, but as a project maintainer, you may want more visibility with a part of the website dedicated to your project and an easier way to deal with your ideas, by having some control over them.
Three months after the launch, it was time to do a small recap and lay out the plans for the next months. At the moment, we can say that we have reached one of our goals: we are getting lots of feedback from you, and we are thankful! What an amazing community!
It's already more than one month since the launch, and Ubuntu Brainstorm continues to grow! And here is another update to the website.
Because everybody like stats (and because it’s not implemented yet!), here are some numbers for you, concerning the week of the launch (28th feb - 5th march):
Four amazing days have passed since the launch of brainstorm.ubuntu.com, and all we can say is Whoah! A couple of numbers:
And the numbers keep growing! We had not expected such a success.
But this huge success has its consequences. As many users have pointed out, there are many duplicates, some spam, and the current ordering of ideas (most votes first) in the main page is not optimized for new ideas. Some quirks and bugs have also been found, thanks to your input on Brainstorm!
