I would suggest a change to how enhancement requests are being handled. The responsibility to track and manage enhancement ideas should be left to SW.
This forum should have a group option for "enhancements" where I can also click to support/like an enhancement. I have been using the forum for many years.
I couldn't say I have search the enhancement request list ever and I don't think many people do. What are enhancement request good for if they are hidden somewhere where no ones is looking.
So why not do that. Add a tag to the posts that let's me decide whether I would like to mark it as an enhancement request. How SW is managing the information is up to them. And then you can use the number of views on certain constructive discussions (ignore rants) to gauge user interest. Just keep in mind only because people look at something often doesn't mean it is important i.e. social media.
Just an idea better utilize users time and still provide feedback to the head quarters.
