[STICKY] How to make a feature request

we love feature requests at cohost. some of our best and nicest features have come from user requests, and even if we don't directly implement your idea, knowing what our users want out of a website helps make cohost a better place to post and interact!

here's how to make your request look its best:

  • check if your feature request has already been posted. duplicate feature requests may be deleted or folded into the most active thread for a given feature to improve thread visibility.

  • be descriptive! clear and specific requests help us identify pain points and user needs more easily. for example, "i would love a setting to make the timeline scroll horizontally on desktop, with tinder-style post swiping on mobile" is infinitely more helpful and much more likely to get shipped than "sideways timeline pls" or "can you make the feed better?"

  • weigh in on threads for features you'd like to see. it's obvious, but this helps us determine which features are most desired. please note that sheer popularity is not the sole or even most important factor in deciding which features to ship, but it does help us prioritize our work queue. additionally, explaining your perspective and use case helps us understand how you use the site, and may help another user with their own feature request.

thank you for your feedback and thanks for using cohost!
