I have a suggestion for a forum module, bug/issue ticket system…
When a user creates a new topic about his issue in one of the forum categories, he could mark this as a possible (JUCE) bug/issue and the topic results in a “Pending ticket” after he has selected a category to put this issue in.
If two or more users click on a “Confirm issue” button in the original post, the pending ticket becomes a valid ticket and ends up in a database of tickets.
These tickets can be resolved by either the JUCE staff or by N forum users confirming issue is resolved.
On the other hand, if the pending ticket doesn’t get any confirmations by other users within e.g. 3 weeks, the original poster gets a e-mail warning him that the pending ticket will expire unless he “re-new” it.
When a person wish to create a new bug ticket he could first look through the pending/confirmed tickets to see if one of them matches his issue and then simply confirm that ticket instead of making a new one.
This already exists (to some degree) at BitBucket etc, but I don’t think I’ve ever seen it integrated in a forum environment. This has the benefit that they already are registered users when they post their issues and don’t have to create a new account somewhere…
again, this is just a suggestion
