The end of 2012 is closing in fast and it’s been quite the year at NING. Just look at this list of what has been accomplished:
And big decisions:
Wow, that’s quite a bit of success for this year! Good job NING!
Well the Roadmap still has some items on it and whether or not they will be finished before the year-end we are unaware, but that can’t stop us from wishing away for 2013! What would you love to see developed on NING in 2013 in addition to what’s on the current Roadmap?
Just a few of my big dreams! J
It would be amazing for it being the default. I have to click the dropdown all the time for this lol.
I would like to add one more to the list:
This is probably doable. Jen has a tip where you can add stuff at the end of all forum discussions.
I've adapted it to display a red line below every post. I'm sure some code wizard here or at Jen Social could add a copyright notice using the member's handle under blogs, photos and vids.
Oh yes! Definitely!
I like the idea of a banner rotator/ad server kind of thing, as well as a point system ( a la karma on reddit). At the very least, the ability to like an individual post instead of a whole discussion.
Reddit style, I like it :)
+1 Definitely great ideas!
Is there a public repository or a bug tracker for Ning where we can all input these suggested feature requests and/or bugs? I feel that reading these feature requests will be very time consuming for anyone to read the post and there is no direct input from Ning whether they are going to take the suggestion or not.
Hey, Alex. We have our own bug-tracking system where we track bugs and feature requests. We read every request posted here on Creators, but we don't respond to every post. But I try to respond to a number of them. I pass some requests along to the product team (and to the rest of the company). To be frank, there are thousands of requests voiced each year, but only a small number will be implemented. We are committed to listening, though.

Good thing these requests are digital and not submitted via paper forms. You guys would have an overflowing archive center lol. NING's got good ears, they tend to pick the best options :) 2013 should be quite a good year!
I think it would be more time effective if you enable a "submit feature request" system where creators can submit their ideas and they can vote on each feature so you know and understand what is really important for creators. Doing this via this forum it must be time consuming - reading through all the replies - and it is really hard to get a consensus on how many creators support a specific request.
I know you can not personally reply to every post people make here, but at least with the "feature request" one will know that his/her suggestion/request is tracked and you saw it and you do not have to read more messages requesting the same feature. Have you guys looked at GitHub.com? Do you have a location where one can see the Road Map of Ning Network?
