We understand your comments. It’s frustrating to watch top voted ideas not being implemented. We’ve not been giving you feedback regarding your submitted ideas (mostly because we release on an anual basis, and only on that "big" launch do we make it public. But we are surely monitoring and trying to understand how each one fits into our long term initiatives.
Wisdom of the Crowds is full of awesome content and has always been a strategic initiative for us. It allows our community of developers to have a centralized place to discuss ideas that would otherwise be scattered around the forums, in an unmanegeable way. We've been discussing how the WotC can best serve its purpose of a live brainstorm resource, without generating the frustration that at times it generates.
We need to clarify that we are listening, and your contributions are not in vain, but there will be no strong commitment to implement ideas. WotC is one of many inputs for determining the future direction of the Agile Platform, along with some other important factors such as market trends and standards, direct customer feedback, and ultimately our strategic vision.
In all our features’ development we look at it for ideas we believe the community would love to see implemented, and when aligned with our roadmap, we take them right inside our development process as use cases that should be considered. This lead us to actually deliver 30+ ideas in version 6.0, 20+ ideas in 7.0 and have a few more under our radar for 8.0.
In summary, by no means have we forgotten Wisdom of the Crowds. We’re aiming to revive it and make it a place for people to brainstorm, not only on Agile Platform capabilities, but mostly on ideas that would really change the way you deliver custom software, and how those ideas could make such a big difference in the software you deliver, maintain and operate. We want it to be a place for inovation, a place where you discuss and collaborate around your problems and discover and contribute to the ideas of others. And I can assure you... we'll be there, listening!
