The Rainy Day File, posted on Wed Apr 29 09:07:28 2009

You guys are an inventive bunch, and we love you for that. At last count, we had about 8,000 open idea reports that had been submitted - that count gets larger every day. It only ever trends upwards.

There are several reasons for this. The first is that some ideas are too big in their scope for any one creator to be able to say 'yay' or 'nay' to. The second is that many of these ideas are good, but not directly relevant to the creator reading them, or good but nobody has the time right now, or good if combined with another idea someone else has. So these reports get left open, and what with all the other things that need to be done, you never get a reply to them.

So, in the next few weeks, you may notice a lot of reports coming back because we're going to try something new with this - you'll be getting reports back saying 'this has been added to our rainy day file'. This is a store of all the idea reports that people have seen and thought were interesting or feasible or thematic enough to make more visible to the rest of the creators. These can then feed into existing projects, projects in other domains, or just be implemented when the urge strikes someone. There's no guarantee your idea reports will get implemented, still - but they're going to be more visible to more people than they would otherwise be.

I'd like to thank you all again for the suggestions you've made. It's a shame we can't implement more of these than we do.
