I understand that there are Feature Requests (FRs) visible in this forum with only +3 net upvotes that were posted four months ago. My FR was only visible for four days before it was hidden by who I can only assume was an admin, but I have no way of knowing for sure.
I'm not entirely sure why this has happened. Was the feature already being implemented? If so, why are there still three visible Smart Tool FRs, when the feature was implemented in version 3.2? Was the post downvoted too far? If so, why was my post hovering around 0 net votes when there are several that are aged a week or older with -4 net votes or so? Will my FR never happen? Then why wasn't this posted as an answer, or even allowed to be downvoted, instead of the FR being hidden?
I have to say, I'm not exactly happy that my FR was hidden without notice and seemingly for no reason. I gave plenty of examples in my FR, explained my reasoning, and talked at length about it all, vs. some FRs here with a line of text vaguely describing the feature in question. I was polite, left the developers an immense amount of room for their own plans even if my request was followed directly, and made sure the forum knew what my FR was about by editing the title to match the request. I don't see anything out of line.
Please contact me if you know what might have happened. I would really like to know why this post was hidden.
