I'm seeing a lot of good pitches (at least ideas in early stage, before a proper proposal) that generate a lot of interest and discussion on their threads but eventually the conversation dies down, or they get buried by other more recent / frequently commented threads.
What happens to those? How do we make sure they don't get forgotten? One could assume that if we forgot them, maybe they weren't all that important.
One could also take the opinion that that's the purpose of the proposals - they get scheduled to have their fair time to be evaluated. And if no one picked it up to turn into a proposal, maybe it wasn't successful enough of a pitch.
But sometimes, the way the thread discussion headed, they just sort of reach a place where there was not much else to follow up with that is useful to discuss, and the person pitching may not be comfortable enough / familiar enough / or have enough time to draft a proper proposal.
I'm wondering if there is, or if there should be be a something we could do about these pitches. It seems most people avoid meaningless "bump" posts anyway (rightly so in my opinion), so the thread eventually gets buried.
So what do you folks think, should there be a way to make sure older pitches don't get forgotten?
