We want to find out what features you'd like to see implemented, (or what problems royally annoy you), on the SilverStripe.org site.

Recently, SilverStripe Ltd did a reconstruction of the SilverStripe.com site. Part of it was that we wanted something splashy to go with launching Dawn, but we also wanted to migrate our own .com site to SilverStripe CMS 2.4. Since we were upgrading the backend, we figured we might as well work on improving the public facing portions too. Sorta like, "Gee, Doc, so long as I'm going to have to have surgery for my appendix anyway, can you work in a tummy tuck while I'm under?"

Of course, SilverStripe.org is much more complex than SilverStripe.com. It's not just a site - it's a portal for the development community and repository of information.  Because there's more work involved, (and more worst-case scenario bits that could go wrong), we haven't yet upgraded SilverStripe.org from 2.3. However, it's not much of a surprise to say that .org will also receive a 2.4 upgrade in the near future.

In addition to the features we'll improve simply by jumping to 2.4, we've got a few things to do on our to-do list. We want to improve our anti-spam capabilities and improve our search. But, before we dive into the project, we would like to find out if there are any key features that you'd like to see added to SilverStripe.org.

What's the one thing you would change? Anything is up for discussion - features, annoying bugs, content, layout, colour scheme, or whatever. (The only thing we ask is that you keep comments about documentation over at the recent blog post on improving documentation.) We're really keen to know how we can make it a more useful tool for our community.

Once again, we thank all of you for your help.
