[Sidefx-houdini-list] Clear market feedback with RFE

I hate to be the voice of doom this early in the morning, but what would prevent said 'online poll' from being "drowned out in the other noise of bugs and questions" as the post from Simon indicates.

I really think the forum is a great medium for this -- perhaps with the growth of the user base, all it needs it a little more aggressive moderation.

Just my $0.02.

I think it's a good idea.  As mentioned below, if someone posts an RFE,
and 20 people say "me too", (all of whom have been thinking it but
bothered to say anything), then this would help give SESI a push.  And,
you yourself might not know you need or want a "Add Sheen" button until
someone mentions it!

 the full package. But what if you could explain to a young and eager to
 hear audience why a feature should be added. If those listening then
 all chipped in with a chorus of approval then maybe it might influence
 what Sesi decide to do next. Its just another way for them to hear what
 the market has to say.

 This would be a more controlled form of feedback that everyone could see
 and join in with.
