Ranking bugs/suggestions by average score*number of votes is wrong and we finally fixed it! I apologize for not following up on this sooner. This fix has been in the works for sometime and unfortunately the bug was not updated for those of you that added it to your tracking list to receive notifications of progress. The solution implemented works as follows, we welcome feedback on this as always…


The top bugs determined by:

  • Rank by avgerage vote value
  • Tie sin average broken by number of votes
  • Exclude fixed issues from the list
  • Include bugs with at least 3 votes


Moving forward we certainly plan to put more focus on top issues such as this and maintain an active feedback loop surrounding hot issues.


As a customer, what would you like to see us do better in terms of discussion of issues via the blog and PFC?
