Description Gerardo Bueno 2011-02-22 00:03:16 CET
Has this version of bugzilla a vote system?

In affirmative case, can we activate it?



Steps to Reproduce:
Comment 1 D Morgan 2011-02-22 00:08:15 CET
this is already enabled on our bugzilla

Resolution: (none) => FIXED

Comment 2 Michael Scherer 2011-02-22 00:19:03 CET
I would be against for 2 reasons :

- it is often misued, when there is people who say "vote for this", thus giving more power to those with a bigger community to the detriment of others ( as I have seen at Mandriva with people voting for the same bug in group ).

- a voted bug do not mean someone will look at it, as packagers look at what they can fix rather than on what is popular, or what affect them personnally.

Theses 2 reasons often result in users feeling unlistened and I never looked personnaly at the vote at all. 

So it is better IMHO to not lie to users, and to not activate vote.

(I agree with misc).
Comment 4 D Morgan 2011-02-22 00:30:35 CET
i am sorry but i agree with mickael on this point.
Comment 5 D Morgan 2011-02-22 00:30:52 CET
i removed the vote option for now

Resolution: FIXED => WONTFIX

Comment 6 Gerardo Bueno 2011-02-22 01:01:54 CET
OKs, You are right. Disabling vote system can keep buglist unaltered.

Sorry for this misunderstanding :P

I was also looking at how to vote on the bugs, and neither found it.

Really, I think good idea, but in this way, we should leave a comment, in each bug that concerns us.
