Wishlist item 1: There ought to be a wishlist board! To be clear, this is not for items that need immediate attention, but for items that we think the programmers ought to think about once the bugs and immediately required features are corrected. Perhaps this is just during the initial period, where the Site Talk becomes that after a while. But Site Talk has traditionally been for lots of other functions, and perhaps a wishlist board would help us look at, evaluate, and prioritize future enhancements. For example, I'd put this in such a category:
Wishlist item 2: There ought to be a way to delete entire threads from your view (although the contents would remain searchable). Most of us have items that we know we will never bother to look at - there ought to be a way to mark threads that way (within our machines) so that they never show again, regardless of whether they are updated or not. Bringing it up under a search would take off the marker and make it visible again.
