The Compiled Wishlist (Updated 13 Sep 2005)

Post by psyXonova » Tue Aug 30, 2005 4:48 am

For readability reasons this thread will be locked for editing so please post your comments at this thread.

______________ How wishlist was builded ______________

Every entry in this wishlist is followed by links of the topics that support it.
This way users should be able to browse the relevants topics and have a complete idea of what the (sometimes poorly named) wish stands for. They will also be able to support the spesific wish by adding their comments in the relevant topics. This way i expect to cut down the multi-threaded wishes (meaning having more than one threads for each wish). It will also make easier to have a full idea about what is currently been requested by MM's users.
I believe that this will also help the developers understand what users need most and prioritize the wishes.

Each wish is followed by a status.
  • Under Development means developers have confirmed that this wish will be implemented in the next release(s)
  • Allready implemented by a script meant that this wish is allready a reality :lol: because a kind user helped the community by developing a script that solves the problem. In the next updates of this wishlist i will also give the name and the link for the specific script(s)
  • Low, Medium and High Priority are ranks given by me. This means that whenever I thought that this wish will make MM much better I gave it the High Priority status. This has nothing to do with what the Developers think about the specific wish
______________ The Categories ______________

I have categorized wishes in the following categories (which are subject to change if members of the community have a better schema... 8) )
I hope that this will help us all.
