When someone wants to request a feature, how should they go about asking it?

1 Answer 1


You should ask a question on meta. The question should:

  • have a title that includes a very short description of the request
  • include a description of what the feature is
  • argue for why the feature is needed
  • be tagged with

From the tag wiki:

Your question should contain the details of your proposal, including a justification of why the new feature is needed and/or how it can improve the community. Basically, prove to the administration that they should spend time developing your feature.

If your feature request only pertains to a particular site, make sure you post the question on that site's meta, not here on Meta.SE.

    Also note that as these sites already exist for some years a lot of feature requests are already asked and status-declined. Use the search feature of the site to get informed about related if not duplicate requests.
