But with a nice record on its tombstone for posterity! While forum posts just... disappear. Or turn into flame threads that get locked and then dissapear.
FWIW I've had suggestions on the suggestions site implemented (with no votes besides my own for that matter), and twice that at least responded to, which is more success than I've seen on the forums.
I'm not saying a suggestion there is likely to be implemented, it's just a better alternative than the forum. If someone asked you for a favor and you've clearly said beforehand how to ask for such a thing, are you more likely to help if they ignored what you asked for first?
A good suggestion would be clear and concise, have a obvious benefit, be reasonable to implement and not conflict with existing design decisions. Your suggestion seems to be a good one and fit the bill nicely, so it would be in your own benefit to use the suggestions platform if you cared enough about your idea to want it to happen for a little extra effort.
