I would really like to see a change in the response pattern from staff here:
From: "We'll file a ticket for this request. (And implied...) Devs might look at this ... sometime in the near to far future, or only if it's approved. If it's not approved we won't tell you, sorry. If it is approved we won't close this forum request, sorry."
To: "We'll file a ticket for this request. Until we can look at this internally, here's how you might be able to do this yourself."
I understand that it takes a lot more effort to look into code than to file a ticket. But filing a ticket doesn't provide us with a solution when we came here looking for solutions. A ticket is a sort of "empty response". It's acknowledgement of a concern that still leaves the concern open for us to resolve on our own.
OK, if we need to resolve this on our own, could you assign a dev to just look at the code on our behalf, so that a near-term suggestion can be made to get us through the current challenge? With that hint posted to the ticket, a dev actually assigned to the task (if that happens) might be able to look at the suggestion as a clue about where to make a more permanent change.
Or ... does anyone have a better suggestion to accomplish the same goal, which is for us members to get more near-term solutions?
