I wonder where you read "transferring all bugs from bugzilla and all wiki 
articles" in my first message? The uservoice site is meant as an addition to 
our current support services, not a replacement.

Having said that, I've recently watched this video: 

>UserConf 2012, Kevin Hale – How to Design Software Users Love

Comparing our current user support with the ideas outlined in that video, 
there is clearly plenty of room for improvement. Having someone try out more 
of uservoice's features might be one way to improve in that area.
