Heaps of great feedback in earlier posts on new features ideas. This morning we compiled a list of new features that we've been bouncing around for a while. Part of the list we came up with is below, much of it is from ideas given to us by you. We've left out some administrative features ideas and ideas only for our internal prediction market customers.
Please do two things in the comments.
One, list your priorities starting with most preferred e.g. F,D,E,B,Q. Prioritise as many as you like, I'll compile your opinions on ideas for however many as you are willing to give.
Two, add new suggestions. I apologise in advance for all the features already submitted in the last few months not on the list - the list was prepared in a rush, please submit them again, I'll add them.
I will update the list with your new ideas. I may reverse the list's order so that newest ideas are put at the top.
