Help Get Rid of Stale Projects

Screen shot 2009-11-10 at Nov 10 - 12.27.56 PMThere’s a lot of discussion on the topic of Open Source collaboration of SugarCRM and on SugarForge.  There’s a lot that you and I want to see happen and we’re each in a place to affect it. I think the right way to go about it, is to make several, minor, agile changes until the end result is what we really want.

Of course, this doesn’t play well with my need for instant gratification to have large sweeping changes.  Alas, I will set that aside and do what I can.

Ok, let’s start with SugarForge… the signal to noise ratio is pretty poor, meaning – it’s hard to find active projects.

Last night I added a feature under the project rating that allows you to nominate a project for removal.  You must be logged in, in order to cast your vote.  I will tally up the votes and start working on cleaning up the stale and dead projects.

Thanks for any help you can offer!

    Love the idea. Please make sure to try to contact the project admin first before removal to avoid accidental deletions.

    The ability to find and remove stale projects is a much needed addition to the site. Adding functionality to promote active projects would also provide good incentive to builders.
