Talk:Task:Brainstorming new features

[edit] IdeaStorm

Moved from 2010 Agenda

  • As suggested here and here, we could set up an IdeaStorm for Maemo to cover:
    • Software ideas larger in scale than Bugzilla enhancement requests, in particular, acting as a focusing agent for Bugzilla enhancement requests (e.g. IdeaStorm brainstorming session -> multiple Bugzilla enhancement requests).
    • Hardware requests outside the scope of Bugzilla.
Isn't this more of a 100 Days action?--qgil 08:54, 2 June 2008 (UTC)
I think it's quite a big task, if you want it to be user-friendly, and with a voting system that provides useful feedback -- FelipeC 12:43, 2 June 2008 (UTC)

This objective is now listed in the development backlog. Oskari from Nemein pushes but you can help out already today.


Krisse suggests to have a look at - which looks like a commercial service based in something like IdeaStorm.--qgil 19:30, 25 July 2008 (UTC)

Okay, I've got to admit here that I hadn't come across Ideastorm before when I suggested Uservoice. From the looks of things they're rather similar, and personally I'd be okay with either, as long as there is some easier-to-understand alternative to Bugzilla, and as long as Nokia does actually respond to suggestions. BTW Uservoice is commercial but it doesn't have ads, its business model is based around offering extra features to the companies using their service.--krisse 10:13, 28 July 2008 (UTC)
Having said that, does Ideastorm have the same limited number of votes as Uservoice? That's quite an important feature to discourage people from suggesting things thoughtlessly.--krisse 10:21, 28 July 2008 (UTC)
The main difference is that Uservoice is a hosted service defined by a company you pay for, while IdeaStorm is an open source application you can install or port to your servers and configure in the way you want, free of charge.--qgil 11:05, 28 July 2008 (UTC)
This one's a no brainer. ;) Open source > *. —GeneralAntilles 11:43, 28 July 2008 (UTC)
