Let your imagination run wild.

Quick question - if you could bribe the Wikidot developers to implement one wish from the feedback site (or a completely new feature), what would it be?

For me, it would be wish 515: ListPages - created_by=".".
While it's a tough question, and there're lots of new features I'd love to see, I have a few cool ideas up my sleeve that need this to work.

Definitely nested ListPages. Agreed.

And somehow I guessed that it was you tsangk, before I scrolled down and saw the next post. I think it was the smiley face that gave it away :)

Okay then, given I can't see nested ListPages happening anytime soon1, which accepted wish would you most like to see implemented?

To be honest, none of the accepted wishes are all that great. They're mostly just small, useful features that'd be nice to have but are in no rush to be implemented.

Sure, "that ListPages could select pages by data forms values" would be nice to have. But it's nothing compared to nested ListPages :) And it's just as unlikely to be implemented any time soon.

A date field in dataforms.

Then sorting by and selecting from fields in dataforms.(like llistpages).

But to be honest, trying to bribe the developers ha been tried before: remember the roadmap project? And that didn't get anywhere. I think they are immune to bribes.

As I recall, we had the ability to use nested list pages (thanks to tsangk, if I remember correctly) and it was taken away by shutting down the "security hole" used to accomplish this.

It's really hard to pick one wish I'd like to see implemented. One I've wanted for a long time that was rejected without explanation1 is wish:22 ("standard" file/folder structure to support 3rd party apps).

Another rejected without explanation wish that we would all love to see is wish:197 (an image/file search capability)

Ah yes, image/file search:: I certainly add that one to my list having be very vocal about it in the past.

Agreed, image/file search is another must-have.

jQuery will cause major security breaches on Wikidot..

Well, I think all that was learned from this exercise is that we all want what we can't have!

Really need to be able to restore automatically from a downloadable backup before I have too much confidence in the long-term viability of my WikiDot site.
