To many comments. Vote and we get it or don't. I think once a request is made, and voting starts the thread should be locked. I do not know if this is possible while still allowing votes???? Current method of Ideas board ends up just like another thread on another board. Many many comments, and off topic posts. Impossible to moderate, and an over whelming amount of work to maintain.
Perhaps our Lithium folks could tell us. I think this is what is required if the channel voting board is ever created. Administrators' and moderators' comments only based on status.
