The SWX ER system is very, very cumbersome, even by their own admission. It is supposed to be easy to search so you can add your votes for an ER and so you don't write an ER that is essentially the same as an existing one. But it is only used by those of us absolutely committed to getting an idea into their formal system.
We know SWX monitors this forum for problems and ideas and that is a very good thing. The annual (but temporary!!!) Top Ten list is typically even more fertile ground for items to improve the software because it really fosters constructive dialogue on the ideas and these comments help to refine, define, and otherwise shape the ideas.
I am replying to this because your post has touched on one of my pet peeves, that the ER system sucks and the forum has become a sloppy, but defacto place for ideas to improve the software. See these:
