Will I be able to Engineer my votes. Say into cascading sequence, to increase my votes by many thousands muchly?
How will interaction work between us and QA?
One of the biggest issues with the current system is that there is so little response (I do understand that QA are busy) over 3/4 of the bugs that I reported since the release of 3.3 weren't replied to by staff. There are still lots of bugs that were reported during the 3.3 Beta that have not been fixed. I'm sorry but with the swell of support behind those bugs, some of the Exploration ones went over 15 pages of comments and reports added to the initial post, and they're still not deemed a priority enough to be fixed. Then I fail to see how letting people vote on an issue is going to make any difference at all.
Yes, once an issue is logged we will show whether it is acknowledged, fixed or listed as closed for other reasons.
According to this:
QA will update the issue's status, so at least now we'll know if it makes sense to keep asking for a fix, giving more details, or just give up
Now, the whole task of keeping statuses up-to-date between internal and public trackers seems like a particularly challenging, yet boring, task. I hope they somehow automated it, or it will stop working very soon ;-) Surely, an "in progress" status would help a lot, but we'll see what we'll be given
Spamming them on everything doesn't help indicate any sort of priority. You get a vote back when they are done I think so you have four active ones all the time.
I just find it hard to believe that spamming issue tracker votes would be enough of an issue to warrant such a strict limit. Given how slowly issues are resolved, and the number of issues that affect me personally, I'm willing to bet I'll hit that limit of 4 pretty quickly.
I made that point in my first reply (post #2), albeit from the other direction. Time will tell, I imagine it won't be difficult to tweak the number either way.The issue would be from the angry types who like to complain about everything, they'd just vote for every bug thinking it would "force the developers hand" or something equally bonkers. Where in reality by voting for everything they effectively have no vote at all and would be ignored.
The limit (I think) is to force people to actually put some thought into it.

I am choosing to take FDev at their word, I am trusting them. Do you not trust them Stigbob? Do you think there is something wrong with people wanting the issues they consider to be important (for whatever reason) to be solved promptly?
