As a non-regular user of the developer forum, is it currently impossible for me to make feature requests that I feel could possibly benefit the platform in a large way. Members should have the ability to message a support/approval team to have posts approved and moved into #feature-requests:website-features (think like how @Bug-Support works). This solution would allow for members to voice their suggestions for features in website features whilst also ensuring members cannot spam or break the rules some other way.
Common potential argument 1#: This team would be flooded by messages from members, making it impossible for anyone seeking feature request post approval to be seen.
Counter-argument to argument 1#: Bug-Support does an incredibly similar thing to what I’m suggesting, but for bugs. Since Bug-Support can handle their workload, and process bug reports of any kind daily, I’m certain a feature request team that would have a lesser workload would be fine. Bug Support only has 11 members of their team, but they are capable of doing their jobs near perfectly.
Common potential argument 2#: The team may be able to approve posts at a quick speed and also stop rule-breaking ones from being approved, but the category would be flooded with so many feature requests that other requests would be drowned out.
Counter-argument to argument 2#: Once again, I’m drawing a comparison with something related to bugs. Every report in #bug-reports is fully viewed over by moderators, with them engaging with the post and asking questions to help diagnose the cause of a bug. A moderator could definitely take it out of their time to read each feature request if other moderators/devforum teams are capable of taking time out of their day to view posts and ask questions regarding the posts. It is quite literally what they would be employed to do
