If the vote is low, is the insect I found a bug a bird?
Let me tell you from the beginning, I'm not trying to get more votes here..
What does voting change? Does it produce a solution? What does it matter if I get 1,000,000,001 votes?
For example, there is a bug in illustrator and I prove it. But vote 3 etc. 5 Does this cease to be a bug? What a stupid app.
I have serious doubts that Uservoice is cumbersome.
In the meantime, check my profile if you want to see my questions.
Frankly, I don't care who comes up with a solution. I don't know how this forum works and I don't care. I don't think this forum is fun. They should follow all kinds of problems here. Of course I will post it here. As if there is any other alternative.
Back to the topic: I can't say that I completely agree with you. But errors in this forum etc. We almost never see the final versions after the . We are always in a beta-like state. As a matter of fact, all the questions asked in the forum, I think that AI did not come out of beta, and it is these questions and requests that make illustrator an illustrator. Otherwise, I do not believe that illustrator has developed itself anymore. (For example, the fact that History Palette was in PS for years and not put it in AI strengthens my theory).
I can say that we are kind of thousands of beta users, and I can't get over the thought that there will never be final versions.
Voting works. It does not directly solves an issue, but it increases awareness, helps admins and product managers to raise and push certain problems, indicates the impact a problem has.
The problem is Illustrator is old and humongous, problems have to be weighted. Generally, if an issue gets more than something like ten votes, it is considered to be a problem worth looking at. It does not mean a bug with nine votes is never going to be treated, it just pushes it further away and let other, more impactful bugs, to be fixed first. Same with feature requests.
Doubts is OK, I still have them, even though I know how it works :) You can check my profile too. Uservoice helped to fix a lot of problems, it’s just there are a lot of them.
Don’t loose hope. Thanks for the reports you make, they help.(Edited by admin)
