Site Ideas Forum

  1. 26 Dec '06 22:16 / 1 edit
    i've noticed on the 'site ideas' forum that a great many number of ideas are simply answered by saying, "they have this on so and so site and it didnt work.." well, so what? that doesnt mean it wouldnt work here. it has to be the most narrow minded view to say he didnt work somewhere therefore it could not work somewhere else...

    not really - it would be fairly short sighted to adopt ideas that had a past history of failing at other sites. I agree, just because an idea failed once it might not fail here, but if comparisons can be drawn between why the idea failed elsewhere and this site then i can surely be fairly judged that the idea is likely to fail here also, so surely better to spend resourses on ideas that are more likely to work?

    I know it can be frustrating if seemingly good ideas seem to get ignored, but I can assure you that the site admin are anything but narrow minded to proposed ideas - although only a few of the proposed ideas get brought to life most of the new features of the site have come from user suggestions, including some that were implemented to see if they would work and removed when they didn't.

    His question didn't seem to warrant such a response here.
