As you may know, giffgaff is people powered and so from the beginning we have wanted to hear your ideas for making our products, community and services even better! That's why we also ask for your help in evolving and advancing the best of the best.

 

In 2 years, the Ideas Board has grown into one of the most active dedicated Ideas Platforms available anywhere and has seen over 7,000 of your ideas, over 50,000 comments and we're implementing them at an average of 1 every 3 days.

 

This blog will be start of a new monthly instalment on the Ideas Board bringing you guys information on what has happened in this month’s Idea Meetings, trends and members who deserve a shout out.

 

This month we’ve had 2110+ votes (Kudos) on the Ideas Board and taken your most popular Ideas into the Meetings – the below have been added to our roadmap among others;

There have been two trends on the Board; with the opening of giffgaff shop you’ve been inspired to suggest changes and additions.

And the second trend we’ve spotted is about Accepted Solutions on the Help Forum and how we can we encourage original posters to come back and set them.

Members have been inspired by other Forums, like Liamwli with ‘Macros’, issues perceived in the community – ‘the giffgaff get going guide’ by m9xx7demix and new innovational improvements (Adding and Deleting handy links by daldred).

 

And last but not least thanks to our ‘Idea Gardeners’ – the superstars who direct members to the right place (original threads) when great minds think alike and a member posts a duplicate. This ensures those thoughts and kudos get taken into account by staff.

I posted an idea about saving your favourite font so you do not have to set it each time you post. Last I heard the idea was with Lithium - I wonder what happened to it? It would be good for ideas posters to be updated with the status of their idea - maybe I should put it on the ideas board?

It sounds like a large number, but I suspect the number of genuinely distinctive and original ideas is probably somewhere between 100 and 200, though I can imagine that others would put it at up to 500

 

So it's worth mentioning that if this blog thread encourages more people to get involved, please use the search facility before actually posting it. to check that your idea hasn't been already suggested.

@Andy - 

 

3,000 Ideas are unduplicated, with 300 being implemented - this means that 10% of all original ideas get implemented, and the number of those accepted and at other statuses is much higher.

I've read them all, and I'm not struck by an impression that there are 3000 discrete ideas in there.

It is good to see the status of ideas that have been submitted.
