Still waiting patiently.
I don't know, I think it's more about Hoop.la deciding what their customers need vs. the customers telling them what they need.
I've seen other forum providers with a merge thread feature and as Jeff said it's "a basic function of any forum software". In some ways it seems related to Reply Forking except instead of starting a new topic you place it into an existing one.
IMO/IME having a Suggestion feature that allows customers to vote on the product roadmap isn't a good thing. It can give them a false understanding that if they make a suggestion, garner support for it, get others to vote, etc. that it will make it will be given more attention over other suggestions. Since we migrated to Hoop.la I've got a ton of suggestions but I'm not sure why I bother b/c they're not likely to get the amount of votes that the most popular ones do which have been sitting here for years rather than weeks.
