I hadn't looked at it before, but it looks good.
Can the items be linked to bugzilla entries? Should we go through all of the
enhancement requests and move them to uservoice? It's a bit of a pain to have 2
systems, because it would be easy for a person to enter something into bugzilla
which we then decide is really an enhancement, not a bug fix.
I used to be a hypochondriac AND a kleptomaniac. So I took something for it.

Subject: First weeks with uservoice
we've now had our first few days and weeks using the "uservoice" feedback tool,
I don't know what you think of it so far, but I must say I like the site very
Its voting system and its simple registration makes it really easy for users to
set priorities on the most wanted features. I think this is a very good tool
when discussing really new enhancements. Bugzilla never enabled us to set any
useful priorities on those, except for the severity of plain bugs. Hence, I'd
like to continue to use bugzilla for bugs because we know how to handle the
severities and the interdependencies among bugs. Enhancement requests, on the
other hand, seem to work much nicer on the uservoice site.
If there are further developers around who would like to the the "admin"
priviledges on uservoice (e.g. setting the status of items), please notify me
and I'll add you as admin.
With the increasing amount of feedback, I have further thoughts in mind about
how to encourage the implementation of the most wanted features. For example, we
can use our donation tip jar to put a significant bounty on the most want
features regularly. We would have to agree on a decision process, or elect some
sort of board or project leader(s) who will get the authority to make such
decisions. But in principle the uservoice feedback enables us to identify a very
small set of wanted features and for this small set we can assign significant
bounties from the donation account.
For now, I'd like to encourage everyone to have a look at the uservoice site and
check the feedback we can collect from there.
