Over the past couple of years we’ve gotten multiple thousands of feature requests and suggestions on how to make OGS increasingly awesome. Some are big, some are small, some are great ideas, some not as great, and while we think we did pretty good at juggling, sorting, implementing, and incorporating several hundred of those, there are lots of good ideas that fell through the cracks, or just ended up getting neglected for a plethora of reasons and excuses.
Starting immediately we’d like to begin using https://ogs.uservoice.com to help solve this problem by providing the OGS community with the tools to help us capture and prioritize what y’all think should happen next. For those unfamiliar with uservoice, it is a forum like system that allows you to add suggestions and feature requests as well as vote on existing requests that you believe are most important. Everyone has 10 votes to distribute and you may assign 1, 2, or 3 votes per topic. Then ideally we developers can come along and work on the features that are most important to the community overall.
So, if you’ve got ideas on what needs to happen to make OGS better, even if you’ve brought them up before, head on over to https://ogs.uservoice.com and start typing! OGS wouldn’t be here today without the community’s guidance and input, and we’re sorry if your past feature requests and suggestions have seemingly gone unheard (I do assure you they have all been heard - just potentially buried amongst the other requests), we’re hoping this will help though!
Thanks to all of you who help keep us heading in the right direction!
