Cap posting of new ideas to one per week per member maximum!

By: prawlin | 27-05-2015 00:00

Self explanatory title.

Methinks this idea requires very urgent rapid implementation. It would stop any unfair repetitive spamming of the ideas board that sometimes occurs.

When a person issues multiple rapid fire ideas (most of which are hastily drafted, poorly written and not researched or considered), it very unfairly pushes other members ideas further down and off the front page prematurely. This prevents the other members ideas from getting a fair exposure time for garnering their needed support kudos.

This ideas board should not be used like some casual chat room affair, sending in every other thought that comes to mind. It is a place to publish carefully considered and developed ideas/suggestions. The true Eureka thoughts. They should have been written carefully, and researched adequately. Truly great ideas don't spring to mind everyday. So one a week limit would be just fine for everyone who comes up with realistic and original proposals IMO.

Please kudos the Orange arrow upper left if you agree

sorry can't support if someone has two great ideas in a week they have to wait to post the second one.

That's like punishing everybody for one persons behaviour.

Very good point. Such punishment wouldn't be good.

I will not be add my support to this one

Some members could have 2 good ideas but i am torn as it could also stop just idea after idea without checking if duplicates

Not a good idea, limits aren't really the best thing when it comes to ideas

I sympathise with you and your views on poorly considered, written etc ideas but putting an arbitrary limit seems wrong and likely to have unforeseen negative influences. Like buses sometime ideas come along at once be it by neurology, astrology or whatever. A limit might lead to a humdinger flash of genius going un-posted, forgotten and forever lost.

In the year and a half since I first commented on your suggestion I have certainly become more familiar with the reasons for suggesting something of this sort. There is definitely a type of member who submits one idea (often calling them ideas is way overselling them) for the sake of posting or to chase payback I don't know. Many are I'll considered often duplicate or already existing features that I can not imagine how they get through. However I think that is the work of the giffgaff staff running labs to vet not the statutory limit

you have a point here, and if someone had many ideas they could write them down and post one per week :)

The energy and enthusiasm is when you have the idea. If you have to wait a week it might never get posted as other things come up and take your time away!

Yes, but you could flesh out your idea during that week and prepare an argument for how it could be implemented. ????

if a person is only having actual practical ideas I see no issue , however if someone is bombarding clearly in practical ideas on to the lab then maybe moderators should step in
