KDE Community Forums present the new KDE Brainstorm

The KDE Brainstorm, where users can post and vote for feature requests for KDE, is the most visited area of the KDE Community Forums. In an effort to improve the experience of both users and developers, the KDE Community Forums staff is proud to present a brand new version of the KDE Brainstorm.


The new interface resembles the IdeaTorrent sites, but it is still powered by the forum software (phpBB), a clear example of the flexibility of the platform. Posting new ideas, voting, commenting and filtering the lists is now extremely easy and requires just a few mouse clicks.

For those who have Javascript-enabled browsers, the KDE Brainstorm sports a complete AJAX interface. In case Javascript is not available, the interface gracefully degrades to a non-AJAX version, making it useful even for people who do not want to run Javascript in their browsers.

Aside from the new looks, the KDE Brainstorm keeps its strong foundations: the Idea Moderators, whose hard work is essential to pre-screen and approve the ideas, the KDE Community Forums staff to keep the system up and runing, and of course the KDE community.

Check out the new Brainstorm, and let us know what you think!

    Awesome! :)
    Can’t wait for tagging support.

    It’s beautiful, fast, simple and has a top-list.
    Now you can change your votes. So the auto-voting doesn’t have negative consequences any longer. (thread-starter automatically votes up, I’ve already voted against my own idea ;))
    But there’s still a “submitted”-section. :(

    @The User:
    What do you mean by tagging support? The forum has supported tags since the relaunch (when the new theme was introduced etc.).

    @Troy – It would be nice. To be precise, I had already a talk with Nightrose on IRC about this and it didn’t look like “new” enough to be Dot-worthy. On the other hand, I’d really like a Dot story on this if possible. We need as many users as possible to use Brainstorm.
