I would do that if I was making a suggestion, but I don't know how to do that when I am intending to reply to someone else's comment, and make sure they see it and people can follow the conversation. That's why I replied here. One general "forum bookkeeping" issue that makes this worse (in my opinion) is that there are topics about certain things (e.g. "A9 - Freedom Mode") but there is not a general feedback thread for new releases (e.g. "A9 - General Feedback"). So what happens is that these announcement threads turn into that, accidentally, because no one knows where to stick that sort of general feedback about a release. I know there is a "General" thread but it does not feel like the right spot to talk specifically about a new release. Not to mention "General" is sort of cluttered and it is so huge it is not clear the devs read it. That's why people comment here. If the desire is to clean this up, then I think going forward with each release there should always be at least one feedback thread for each major release which is NOT topic specific, but is for "other feedback" (whether praise or criticism) and then the announcement / patch thread should be locked, with a link to the feedback threads. Just a thought.
