Where do I post feature requests for Github ?

Solved! Go to Solution.

Hi,

 

The Github Contact page doesn't have an obvious section for submitting ideas/feature requests. Where can I submit one ?

 

(I am aware of this topic here; I am asking about feature requests in general)

Re: Where do I post feature requests for Github ?

Hi @AndreaGriffiths11, I posted a feature request about partial search functionality but it got deleted yesterday (Nov 11th) without any explanation. The request was for a wildcard support in search queries (e.g. "multipl*"). Would you be able to tell why it was deleted and where should I post it?

Hey @bartlomiej-dawidow,

 

I noticed your comment and I wanted to share that your post can be found here.

 

I apologize for the inconvenience. Sometimes posts get caught in the moderation queue, but our team reviews them as quickly as possible.

 

Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns.

 

Greatly appreciated,

Re: Where do I post feature requests for Github ?

Hi @MChevy422, thanks for your reply. I was referring to my other post about a different feature that was previously available here:

https://github.community/t5/How-to-use-Git-and-GitHub/Feature-request-Search-issues-by-a-partial-wor...

But it now disappeared. Based on your answer, is there a possibility that it's still awaiting moderation?

I just noticed an option to notify moderators if a post should not have been marked as spam, so I will use that - I didn't notice it before, I'm sorry about it.

@bartlomiej-dawidow,

 

To clarify, that particular option should not be used to help clarify that a certain post is not SPAM. That option should be used for when user's feel that a post should be reviewed by a moderator due to valid concern.

 

If a post gets marked as SPAM by either a user or by the internal moderation system; that status can only be cleared and removed by someone from our GitHub Community Forum Team so that the post can be returned to its original posting place.

 

Let me know if you have any further questions about our 'Report inappropriate Conent' and 'Mark as Spam' tab options.

 

Thank you,

Re: Where do I post feature requests for Github ?

@MChevy422 That's strange - when I opened the link earlier today, it showed a page which said that the post does not exist. Then about half an hour ago, it showed a page saying that it was marked as SPAM and a button to contact moderators (the post's content was hidden). I don't remember the exact wording but I'm pretty sure it said I should use that option if I believe it's not a SPAM. Then a few minutes later I got your reply and the post showed up again. That was confusing - I will keep it in mind in the future but this might be something you should investigate / change the wording.

@bartlomiej-dawidow,

 

Thanks for the feedback. Lets go ahead and continue this conversation through private message so we don't continue to cloud this post with our side conversation. I will send you a message momentarily.

I apologize, I had not seen your second feature request until reading your comment.

 

You should be able to view the feature request post in question as of now.

 

Again, I apologize for the delay.. thank you for being understanding.
