Forum.baseline.is is fun, but takes a long time for new users to get started.
This can discourage giving feedback.
I would suggest something simpler, a dedicated solution.
Could you please use something more functional.

I’ve tagged this with “probably-not” because we are pretty happy with this forum method since it gives us more flexibility in growing our community in more directions than just the roadmap.
The forum has its advantages in that people can discuss more.
Dedicated solutions focus on development.
I think it would be better with a hybrid.
For example, dedicated solution + group on Facebook or Discord.
A lot of feedback tools are a “one way” channel.
I love that we have this here. It does allow for discussion. Anyone who considers the community to be too much friction probably gives their feedback via the support bubble in the bottom right corner of the app.
I think there is a lot we can get from seeing other people’s idea, commenting on them, etc. Same for a public roadmap.
I love it here. I don’t like platforms like facebook or discord.
