By this logic, we could have dedicated Wish sections for Python, the Archicad-Grasshopper Connection, BIMcloud, Open BIM, whichever field users feel very strongly about.
If you think about this, Laszlo, this is actually a really good idea.
This approach is called "data normalization" and is used to organize data into logical partitions and prevent disordered forum tread placement and data duplication without offloading organizational tasks onto forum users' shoulders, like Karl had suggested.

I've been encouraging everyone for years (without any luck I might add!) to make their Subject lines for new threads be as meaningful as possible to help guide people to that topic.
In this case, please post your wishes (one wish per thread as always please) with a subject line that begins with "PARAM-O Wish: <the actual wish>". This will make it easy for people specifically interested in PARAM-O to find these wishes.
Karl, encouraging/informing actual forum users to comply with some obscure title construct structure is not going to work for many reasons.
However, expanding the forum with additional top-level topics (as per Laszlo's suggestion) for all new developments within ARCHICAD, may possibly become educational for someone visiting this forum infrequently...
It is all about user experience...
And that brings me to the whole "user experience" thing here...
I did not
start this wish with a poll, as I did not want this wish to be "rated"...
Creating a poll (on my behalf) and then mob-voting my wish down using forum admins's votes is strange.
The whole idea of this forum is to encourage people to voice their opinions, but putting together a poll (on user's behalf) and then instantly voting it down with the heft of the most populous/organized group of users (forum admins) does not help this forum out in any way.
This wish was for your consideration, not bashing it down collectively.
You run this forum and you make all the final decisions here, but if I were involved with a forum like this, I would specifically preclude any forum admin from voting on any polls. Not because we don't value your participation, but because this organized admin-voting has a potential of swaying regular user's opinions, as it is all to easy to create a situation (like the one above) where a wish was requested, and, instead of letting the other forum users build up their opinions over time, you have created and unfavourable starting environment for regular forum users to voice their opinions and created a skewed representation of that question's acceptance.
