I see a lot of people starting threads about bugs which have been previously covered/reported or even fixed. Can’t blame anyone who does this, because anyone who posted a previous thread could have worded it differently or not understood exactly what was causing the bug (perfectly understand).
My suggestion to solve the abundance of bugs is to have a sticky thread that in itself syncs with the bug tracker, but in an easier-to-understand way. The bug tracker looks like gibberish to someone like me. If it were say in a table describing each bug (ones which actually exist – not those which have been previously covered or are not in fact bugs. This way prominent or very common bugs can be addressed and therefore less threads about bugs would be present.
A second thing which would be nice is to add another subforum to do with bugs. All threads in the support and discussion subforum that have a [BUG] prefix (which would have to be added) could automatically be sent to the big tracker and moved into the subforum.
Might be a hell of a lot of work, but it could end up saving a lot of time fixing bugs.
(might also be a terrible idea). Any thoughts?
