[maemo-community] Brainstorm: useful?

I think that brainstorming or any discussion is useful if "users" see
results from it. I am not sure if "implemented ideas" are the result
people is expecting...

any way, the brainstorm website seems too complex, too long, ... Something like:
[Idea title] [number of proposed solutions]
[Idea brief]
[Idea title] [number of proposed solutions]
[Idea brief]
[Idea title] [number of proposed solutions]
[Idea brief]

Just to have a main ideas view, and you can switch to speficic item,
instead of a long scroll page...

Best regards,
