Make this a long running project.

I think it's better to link to the thread list rather than the welcome message or people might think there are no entries since noone has replied to the welcome message.

Make the link stick on the frontpage for a long long time, this should be a long-running effort and it is kind of hard to find of it's hidden in the thread hierarchy.

I replied to the Welcome message. I can see this forum getting out of hand.

Sun, please
1) start a fresh area (not the bug parade) that is dedicated to RFEs
2) have a suggestions area of free format threads/forums
3) common proposals (that have some chance of success, or are worth serious debate) should be extracted from the open discussion area to a fixed topic list area (closer to the bug parade)
4) have voting/discussion systems that indicate support for, and support against each serious proposal.
5) be clear how seriously Sun is taking a particular issue - if it has no chance be clear

Why? Because the current bug parade is weighed down with very long, very old discussions that have had little Sun participation. Sun needs to show real interactivity in this process.

My suggestions has been, and remains, to replace BugParade by what Netbeans or using for issue-tracking. One could use their issue tracker or something similarly de-formalized and it should be supplemented by (as you mentioned) a new attitude by Sun engineers. Communication should be two-way between engineers and end-users.

Want a good example of what I'm talking about? See's discussion forums. That is some good work at play!
