If you have ideas for improvements in how this forum works, there are two approaches that will most likely get the most traction:
Post an issue at meta.discourse.org (discourse is the software that this forum runs on and that site is where the people working on discourse discuss things like wishes/complaints/bugs)
Mention @sam and/or @codinghorror in your post. These are two discourse developers that have visited this forum and have provided answers. This may not be quite as good as option 1, but it will send a message to these guys so they know to read your post. Also feel free to mention @stevebaer so I get a message to take a look at your post.
I will always try and help where possible and some changes may be specific to the McNeel configuration of our discourse server, but I would like to remove and sort of “middle-man” approach where I am conveying what I think you are requesting to the discourse developers.
Discourse is being actively developed, so now is a good time to let these people know what you want. From what I can tell, the discourse team’s software development process is very similar to how McNeel writes software. They try to be open and release new versions often so people can try the latest features/fixes. They also make decisions based on what people are telling them in their user communities.
