I've written a draft tutorial with Guidelines for submitting new Ideas, which I hope answers to the issues you address here. I'd welcome additions, corrections, other feedback and questions. Please share those on that tutorial.
As for changing this website, that needs an enthusiast user to take the Community site software forward. It's open source: https://github.com/linuxmint/community.linuxmint.com. Fork it, add a new feature, and do a pull request.
While there will be those that don't want to hear me saying this, or will insist that the Linux Mint developers do everything while they themselves lean back in their armchairs, the Linux Mint developers can't possibly work on everything and anything.
Cinnamon has many volunteer contributors to take it forward, as does MATE, as do the Mint tools. The Community site software similarly needs volunteer contributors if we want it taken forward.
Without this kind of guide, I already become the one who give idea which actually not that "Mint"...
the same thing is needed for tutorials too. i gave an idea almost similar to this one which suggest to have a help menu in this website containing suggestions/rules for writing ideas/tutorials, several weeks ago:
though, i am promoting this one too....
Similar ideas have been suggested before but since it makes sense I promote this one too
