Honestly, I thought there would be some feedback from this question (other than the obvious 5 votes that covered my bounty). So, from that I would gather that the idea didn't totally suck. Based on the reception so far I wondered though if maybe my question was unclear.
Well, I know that the meta community wouldn't let me get away with an unclear question. There would ensue a small slurry of
more information/examples please. I know what down-votes mean on meta. What does it mean when no one is even commenting on a question regarding a feature request?
If the subject matter is not disagreeable and would at least solicit the up-votes to cover the bounty, what makes my question unengaging? We have had question on how to gain up-votes (write better questions to provide clear and concise guidelines for a problem), but what about questions on meta to solicit engaging participation?
The other thing I thought about why I wouldn't be getting the views and comments is because I am only garnering a fraction of the audience that would benefit from a feature (in my opinion, of course). So, then I wondered if it would be beneficial for a list of feature requests posted on meta to be displayed on the home page of SOFU. Somewhere in the margin and possibly only feature requests that have had bounties put on them - kinda like paying for premium advertisement space. Oh well...you can start slagging me for beginning to ramble.
