Please enable us to sort the Make a Suggestion list so that we can see the items that have the highest number of votes!!!!!!
You can do this by viewing the TOP Ideas:
I believe this puts the Ideas in sort order from highest number of votes received to least - of which there is an inordinate amount!
It is not easy to build consensus or get more Community constructive responses to Ideas (from my experience destructive/negative or NO vote or even no vote/responses are by far more vocal. Note: you cannot view in this search/sort the amount of views a particular Idea has - thus cannot compare whether an Idea is trending too well.) - and thus get a more accurate picture of what features users would really like to see change.
From my perspective - Community is so fractured that Ideas result in being suggested again and again ... (understandably so when you consider research time may be at a premium these days) - building little momentum or consensus - other than complaints about changes I guess (that is fairly easily seen). Some Ideas that address bugs or are obvious to the developers or require minimal changes can be implemented without too much Community input - but other broader and far-reaching Ideas really should get Community input. I guess FamilySearch can use more sorting options to view trends (There is a Trending sort option in addition to TOP) - and group like Ideas together. So it does not surprise me that FamilySearch just has to evaluate and make decisions about development priorities and then move ahead - though I really like how they involved Community in New Person Pages (Thank you FamilySearch!). ... Such is the variety in communication styles and skill of persuasion I guess ... Granted it is difficult to start an Idea with enough explanation that it is clear to all who may view it to understand it (FamilySearch is a large application with many different facets and manners of use) - so just explaining the difference from how it currently operates to how you wish it would operate takes work - then you have to try to get others on the same page and then persuade them that the Idea is a good path/step forward rather than cannot be accomplished or would cause harm to their cheese.
