Many software developers give an opportunity to their users to submit ideas for new features. Clearly, users are some of the best sources for gathering feedback about your product and how it can improve.
One of the best ways of enabling users to suggest features is to use a system whereby a user can submit his idea, and other users can vote it up or down. Thus the most highly voted ideas or feature requests are prime candidates for future development on your theme/plugin.
Ideas! is a slick and minimal Feedback and Submission system, it lets you engage with your customers, offer an interactive and instant feedback / commenting system via modal or inline, or a mini private support system, track bugs, collect user ideas and votes or manage a private team project.
