Getting people to post in contribute first before going to labs is an ongoing problem. I think the perception of getting extra payback in labs leads to an almost spamming of labs with ridiculous ideas. Perhaps not allowing posts there until they have been in contribute by auto referring them here could help
You may think that.
I, along with many others in the Labs group have recycled this suggestion for three years :smileyfrustrated:
Sadly, many who were very active in the group appear to have given up, leaving a few stalwart fighting for a common sense approach.
Quote from a post made on 28.11.18 by @fadlur_f ....
"Thank you for the feedback and diagram it has been most useful, I understand the research before the idea should take place to make well developed but we want to keep this as an optional option. Why? we now have a review process that educates the person as not all members go to the forum first, they might just come on to submit an idea and making the process simple. As deterring a member with mandatory steps when they are only volunteering their ideas does seem unfair. "
An "optional option"? :smileymad:
So controlling access is not the giffgaff touchy-feelly way.
It would appear that they would prefer to have a member of staff sifting through the chaff of some 300 ideas a month just to find a handful of new(ish) ideas.
Now onto how many ideas have been reviewed and received this month.
283 Idea received
182 Idea reviewed
Of which 99 Ideas pending-
of which 18 Ideas went live
of which 110 ideas were already suggested.
- I share your frustration about the instant "share this in labs
Often from long standing members who should know better!
What is worse, some gentle guidance/hand holding through the path of posting ones brilliant "new" idea or to be directed to Labs to just receive some "education" from a member of staff? :smileysad::smileysad:
