Hi Jean,

I see Rob already copied some ideas from the other sections (OE Development) to this new section, but this means all votes from the original Idea get lost.

2 of the ideas I posted are currently top voted in the OE Development section (23 votes on "Complete OO functionality in ABL" and 22 votes on "Add enums to the ABL language").

It surely can't be the preferred way to copy/paste these ideas, and get as much people to vote on them again?

That thread needs to be just an extraction of suggestions fom the ideas thread - right now it's turning into a messy  "ideas"  thread instead of prioritizing a list of possibilities derived from the ideas thread.

I'd like to mention also the OpenEdge Info-Exchange session on Thursday 16:45 during PUG Challenge, room Cologne).

By the way, we just added another set of ideas for the OE DB side...

The community has already (over the last few months) been voting up/down those ideas that they want in the product in the next release.

*** That's what the ideas section already is! ***

What is the point of creating a new ideas section just for 11.6 & then forcing us to copy ideas over & lose historical votes.

This seems very misguided.

It almost suggests that the PMs haven't been staying on top of the existing ideas & so are overwhelmed & want to start over. If this is the case then there should be a better way of doing this.
