Re: Just my opinion - the move of MOS to Flash is still a bunch of crap

I have been sitting on the sidelines and reading this, tempted to respond. I got to talking to someone at the manager level in Support who has also been looking at these. What is most helpful is to identify exactly what you want to change, and maybe even how to change it. Some of those on this thread did that. Some did not. =)

I myself have had a number of suggestions that I have made known to various folks in the Support structure. And there are days I feel exactly like you do, Jared. I am glad you got that off your chest, but I would encourage us all to be specific about what we want - it makes it much easier for developers to deliver specifics. Not saying they *will*, but at least they cannot use the excuse of not knowing.

Hmm... is anyone keeping track of changes that the user community would like to see? Since Oracle does not seem to believe in things like bugzilla, maybe a user community owned list of enhancements (both done and need to be done) would be appropriate.
