As you all are aware, Freetrade Team is keen to know our personal opinions on #ideas proposed and, potentially, adjust their priorities based on the users’ needs (ISA being the absolute winner so far).
However, one big obstacle to me personally is the Votes limit - there are just so many great ideas and I find it hard to alter my allocation. It also seems like new ideas get penalised on the basis of later submission, whereas those that were suggested earlier on got the majority of the votes.
What are your thoughts on this? Do you think people would just vote on everything if that was an option? Or would it work similarly to the Trello Board where people only look for areas they are most interested in? Feel free to share and express your opinions in a unanimous poll as well!
I am only curious if many people actually do that. I think I liked about 35 ideas in total but only swapped my votes three times. Few of those I did not vote for are more significant to me than some others that I keep the votes stuck in, but that is the disadvantage of the limit - I do not like revisiting old votes. Am I the only one of such lazy kind?
Reset the voting to zero, and allow only three votes. It will turn out that everyone wants the same few things: more stocks, tax wrappers, and BT to be either described or not described as slow internet.
Which the team at Freetrade already know, and it will also remind them that community voting is a thin and risky kind of product management.
I’ve noticed that a few of our most active community members have hit their vote limits. And since we’ve decided to slow the pace of our stock additions, we’ll be closing fewer topics which means that votes will be tied up for longer. So I’ve just increased the number of votes that everyone has to 75. Use them wisely
