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

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

Maybe such a stict limit would stifle creativity?

I don't like this idea personally.

Someone might be having a think and come up with several genuine ideas, but if they can only post one at a time they will have forgotten the other ideas.

Agree with Tokyobuta. At the moment there are a lot of ideas being posted that are repetitive, but new ideas can't be stifled too much

An idea is that whilst they may be similar they also may be different with a different way to implement. It would be unfair to discourage people from submitting an idea based on similarity.

The principle is good, but one per week may be too low.  Perhaps ten per month?

If people are working on a number of Ideas, this discourages them from posting them, as they may forget to follow up every week

Disagree. Obviously some people spam the Ideas board, but you don't want to prevent Good Ideas from being posted by serious giffgaff members...

maybe 1 per day would be the right limit

I feel one idea posting per week is a little low. Maybe three would be better, as some members are gifted in the ideas department.

i have to say i would disagree. ideas are free and unstructured, and putting any sort of limit on them will just stifle ideas and the thought process.

granted that there may be lots of not so good ideas, but if there is just one out of those then that is still better. people should be encouraged to improve GG experince and putting limit on things would just drive peopl's creativity away.
