    Edited: 

    It would be nice to have some sort of sorting system for the suggestions. It's quite often the same ones are suggested over and over, or that we don't know which ones were implemented unless we follow along.

    Personally, as suggestions with a rating over 100 receive staff consideration, I would also like to be able to sort suggestions with a certain negative rating as declined.

    If you're also interested in having a bit more order in the suggestions forum, how would you want to be able to sort or filter the suggestions?

    I initially considered ratings as a criteria for sorting, however this was not well accepted. A different suggestion could be:

    Accepted (Green, requires a rating >100)

    Suggested (Yellow, rating does not pass 100 and isn't negative to be declined)

    Declined (Red, requires a rating of >-50)

    It doesn't quite solve the duplicate suggestions, however one could then be encouraged to look at some of the declined suggestions to see what has already been put forward to the community with no success.

    Terrible idea, not even going to explain why, the system we got works great.

    Newer suggestions would be put to the back and won't be seen by many.
    It's the only way we know to go
    Squad up, never roll alone

    I agree with this. But with a filter things like that can be defined.

    So one example could be to sort posts by "Newest First" so that we can look at newest suggestions to then evaluate what we think of them as a community.

    Posts that have over 100+ ratings needn't appear on the first pages, which currently also take away from newer posts.

    At the moment posts that receive priority are those that are "bump spammed", and so often we lose track of good ideas, simply because the OP or others interested in implementation of an idea aren't bumping.

    I don't think the current system is ideal Paulio, albeit, I can agree it's not broken. I would love to hear your objections.

    Thanks guys.

    Your assumption that higher quality suggestions are the ones with higher ratings is in itself fundamentally flawed.  As for the "community interest" angle, well let's just not go there.

    I like apples doo doo doo...

    Fair enough. We'll let it die then.
