Boards Feedback, and What We've Gathered

We launched this sub-board a little under two weeks ago to open up a dialogue within the Boards community. Since then, we've received a tremendous amount of feedback covering various aspects of the Boards - over 700 messages worth. And even though we've mentioned our limitations with development, that didn't stop you from providing a lot of development ideas; but we got to see a lot of your passion and creativity come to life, and ultimately, we share a lot of your same sentiments. With all of this feedback, we've decided to aggregate the data to list out the various ideas we've received and to further those discussions without those points needing to be brought up repeatedly.

The following data does not represent the projects we're looking to move forward with, but rather just a list of the different points that we've received so far. We'll go through the list and have our own internal discussions, bring certain points up for discussion in the future, and look at feedback that's provided to us as it's posted in this sub-board. Thank you to everyone who has participated in our discussions.
