From what I notice, a number of requests notified on Meta are abandoned without being fixed.
For example my request related to the color of the links and posted a year ago is still ignored, while is has been shown (see link in the answer by Yannis Rizos to the linked request) that the actual choice of colors is poor.
In the same way, the bug notification about the bottom of the links not being clickable is still pending, one year after, with no reply whatsoever, while it is clearly a bug, and a very disturbing one, given that there is a visual response (red color) while the cursor is on a non-clickable area.
Around a year ago (finding a link is a bit tricky), there was a request to add other relevant SE sites to the list shown when the question is being closed as off-topic.
There is still only Stack Overflow, and no sign of willingness to add some relevant sites like:
- UX.SE or
or a plethora of beta-state sites like:
- Workplace.SE (extremely relevant),
- QA and testing (would fit well for a bunch of questions posted the last week),
- Personal Productivity (the questions which fit better are quite frequent on Programmers.SE),
- Project Management (also a good place for many questions actually posted on Programmers.SE),
What explains such passiveness? Is it because Joel Spolsky and his team lost interest in Programmers.SE, like he repeatedly explains in his podcasts?
Who is (or is there somebody) in charge of implementing new features and fixing bugs on Programmers.SE?
Is there a better place than Meta to ask for new features and to report bugs?
