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

That's why it needs to be something a bit more than a forum, and yes it
has to be moderated. I think odForce is ideal as long as the moderation
can be maintained. Keep it separate from Sesi and see if it ends up
reflecting the same information they collect.
Sure I'd want to promote what I want to see, but if I see a great RFE I
never thought of, and judging from the recent odForce wishlist thread
there are quite a few, I might actually switch my own opinion on my own

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

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!

 disscussion. I bet you yourself have a 100 RFE's that have never made
it into  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.

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