A lot of features get asked for multiple times.
Some features are good ideas, but there’s not much to say about them so they don’t get bumped by comments.
Comments aren’t really a good way to measure how much the community wants a feature because the comments can be negative. Likes aren’t a good way either because if the topic isn’t getting bumped by comments it won’t get as many likes.
So, I think we need a better feature request system.
