Ideas should be public

  9 years ago

Ideas cannot be accessed unless you are logged in. Shouldn't these ideas be available to everyone without having to create an account? (Obviously they could not vote or comment, but they should at least be able to read them)

This community is still in alpha stage. Give the Mint developers some time to progress enough in order to make some features public. There's no rush right now. :) I'd rather see the LXDE edition out and Mint 9 as a RC. That's more important. :D

Reading can be public. Nothing to hide here. Maybe interesting content will convince someone to register.

Writing/Editing - must not be public. Or else I will write a bot myself which sells V1@gr@ on this site just to prove a point, he he (joke).

I think that all ideas and also the Hardware database should be public. Because no one would register himself on this website only to visit the hardware database.

Don't make the voting public, but let people see what ideas are being promoted.

I believe all ideas should be public to make others know the trends.

If they cannot vote or comment, what harm could they cause? What's wrong with others just seeing the ideas?

That will make the community site a total chaos, and you invite people that don't want to help, but irritate people on this site.

I think the more ppl have access to the ideas the more they get improved.

dbpatankar: Making voting and commenting public would be like inviting youtube over for a cup of tea.

If you made access to ideas public, with or without voting, you would probably have to disable the user profile link for non-community members.

I don't think so.

I think it can even be made public for voting. I believe the whole linux community is responsible enough to handle this.
