This version of the HR20 Wish List Survey was closed on 16-Feb-2007. Please look for the next generation HR20 Wish List.
Welcome to the HR20 Wish List Survey - The unofficial feature request list
The survey consists of a number of items that have been suggested by folks here at DBStalk.com. You can rate each item from lower to higher with the lowest value being one (1) and the highest value being five (5). The value displayed in the results section is the average of all of the values entered.
The HR20 Wish List Survey is evolving as new ideas are hatched and old ideas are implemented. For this reason, I have adopted the following guidelines for changes to the Survey so that the process is constructive for both the participants and for folks at DirecTV that may review it.
The Survey will typically be updated each Friday morning (PST).
Additions to the list
Prior to 26-Jan-2007, any new item suggested was added to the list.
Beginning 26-Jan-2007, the following guidline will be used instead:
With the exception of a "killer" feature, all new item requests will be automatically added to The Back Burner
. Features/Items will make their way off of The Back Burner and onto the main list by popular demand. This will be done by having a "Call for Poll" where there must be a First (the Call) and a Second within a 24 hour time period before a Poll will be created on DBStalk.com. The Poll will simply ask if the feature/item should be moved from The Back Burner onto the main list. The Poll should be a 3-day poll to give sufficient time for voting, and a link to the poll should be placed in this thread for reference. A simple majority (50% or higher) will move the item from The Back Burner onto main list. Items will be added to the HR20 Wish List Survey during the Friday updates.
Removals from the list
Each new item will get at least 15 days on the HR20 Wish List Survey. These items are easy to identify by the
icon. After 15 days, the following guidelines will be used. An item will be removed from the list as soon as practical if it can be determined that the item is no longer necessary (e.g. DirecTV fixed it or someone discovers a suitable workaround). With the addition of The Back Burner, items are less likely to be removed entirely from the HR20 Wish List Survey if they are low-scoring. However, if in the first 4 weeks, an Item fails to maintain a score of 2.0 or higher, it will be removed completely from the HR20 Wish List Survey. In addition, if an item marked "unlikely to be implemented" fails to maintain a score of 2.5 or higher, it will be removed completedly from the HR20 Wish List Survey. Items will be removed from the HR20 Wish List Survey during the Friday updates.
The Back Burner
Begining 26-Jan-2007, there will be a new type of item on the HR20 Wish List Survey called The Back Burner. This is simply a holding area for any item that consistently scores below a 3.0 for a 4 week time period. While some of these items may be nice to have, there is a poor response from the community to have these items added to the HR20. These items are not removed from the list, but, instead, put on the back burner for future reference. As some of the more important items from the main list become new features of the HR20, The Back Burner items may become more desired. Simply follow the Additions guideline above for getting them back onto the main list. Non-new items on The Back Burner must spend 4 weeks off of the HR20 Wish List Survey before they can be considered again for the main list.
The wording of an item may be changed for clarification.
