    Here's the idea:

    The first page a user sees when visiting a uservoice page isn't a list of ideas that may or may not have been accepted by the administrators sorted by vote, what they see instead is this:

    Ideas that have been started, then
    Ideas that have been accepted, then
    Ideas that are under review, then
    Ideas that have been completed

    Then on a completely separate page: Ideas sorted descending by votes that are not completed, accepted, under review, started, or declined (basically an upcoming ideas list).

    You know what I'd call this? A public facing roadmap without ETA dates (kept up to date with no additional effort by administrators) and an upcoming ideas list.

    Now, WHY would this be important? It changes the unit of measurement from "votes" to progress / status. What would make your company look better? It may be just me, but knowing that a company is *doing* something about suggestions is far more important to me than whether my idea has a lot of votes.

    It helps both large and small companies.

    It will help big companies (like Rackspace) because they have legal departments that need clearance to make any sort of statements and this would probably work out nicely as a loophole because it has no mention of dates unless specifically mentioned by an admin user.

    It will also help out a small users like myself because it's one less thing that I have to do. It would also help me look like I have it together, and shows that I care about what our users request and that I have a track record of getting things done for them.
