Declined vs locked suggestions
The entire point of this site is to collect user feedback. I absolutely support your ability to review suggestions, and in some cases, decline them (at least for the foreseeable future).
However, your site is set up in a way that declined suggestions are also locked and do not allow future votes. I'd like to suggest that you leave the voting open on ideas, even if they are declined. Otherwise you are effectively saying that you want feedback on customer needs, but only if it pleases you.
You might find that a declined idea continues to gain so many votes, that you have to conclude that it is a more critical feature than you originally realized - maybe not one you can implement immediately, but one that you have to think about long-term (otherwise, some other software package will implement it, and take away your market share because it is a feature your customers value highly).
Thank you for reading.
Sorry, this was supposed to be in "other"
