I have been banging on about the need for a bug/features system. It occurs to me the simplest (therefore most likely to be implemented) would be a unique forum. This would accomplish many of the requirements of a "grown up" formal bug tracker.

1) Each unique bug or feature request would be isolated.
a) Each user suffering from said bug, or requesting a feature could commit on THAT issue only.
b) When complete, communication about the resolution would be more complete.
2) Priority could be determined by activity. That is, a large count of comments would denote a priority issue.
3) As a problem is resolved, it would naturally fall off the list.
4) Reduction in multiple reporting.
5) An issue would get a unique identifier. The link to the forum topic.

There is no real way for that to be useful, or accomplish the goal.

You actually took the time to do that.....

None of those have been fixed/implemented by Juggle. Why would they make a new forum with your layout? It would be too hard for Juggle to do.

I don't disagree. My wish for a real system I discarded as too much for them to care about. This, however, would be a huge improvement with absolute minimal effort. If they are unable, or unwilling to address the issues, that is another problem.

When a bug is reported, it should be marked as acknowledged , assigned point person, run through normal dev cycle. This is.... OLD standards stuff.

Minimal effort, huh? Yep, Juggle definitely isn't gonna implement anything associated with the word "effort," minimal or otherwise.

I don't disagree with your idea; I actually think it a great idea, but stupid ole Juggle ain't gonna do a thing about it.
