 WordPress Ideas has been around for a long time. To the best of the
 Support Team's knowledge, it's not actively monitored, it only has two
 moderators, and it's still on an old version of bbPress.

 It sounds like there has been some discussion on replacing it at #1182 but
 nothing recent, so Support Team had a discussion during our meeting today,
 and a vote on what we’d like to do with it (understanding that the
 decision may be out of our hands).

 If our vote does matter in this case, by unanimous vote, we would like to
 retire the WordPress Ideas section in favor of the Requests and Feedback
 forum: https://wordpress.org/support/forum/requests-and-feedback/

 In general, our feelings are that a section dedicated to promoting and
 rating ideas isn't much help to WordPress as a whole if it's not
 monitored, and the entirely separate system makes it difficult for us to

 Feature request and such can instead continue to be "triaged" in the
 Requests and Feedback forum, and referred to Trac as enhancements and/or
 directed to initially construct as a plugin when necessary.
