More Feedback Needed for Feature Requests
With over 3,000 feature requests more than two and a half years since the current Feature Request forum was opened, a lot of users are frustrated by the lack of progress.
It would be helpful if all threads with 50 or more votes were tagged by a staff member or insider as: Pipeline, In Progress, Nice to have, or Will not do. The meaning of these tags also needs to be explained in the Feature Request Forum Header.
I have collected this list of popular feature requests. It would not hurt to tag more topics, but at least all of these need to be updated:
Votes for Feature Requests

It would also be interesting to have a list (in pinned locked topic?) in which order are the requests planned to be implemented and a guess when they'll be done.
@potmeklecbohdan It is not a good idea to give any ETA. Even the In Progress tag raises expectations. We know that the developers are currently working on the email client, and it is on my Christmas wish-list, but it is still somewhere over the horizon.
Updated topic for the release of Vivaldi 3.4 Stable.
It would be good if someone could find time to updated the tags on the most popular feature requests, and explain what is meant by NICE TO HAVE. It goes without saying that all popular feature requests would be nice to have for many users. A new tag of CANNOT DO for requests that depend on changes in Chrome, or other factors beyond the control of Vivaldi might also be helpful.
@Pesala "Nice to have" means the developers like the idea as well, but can't make any progress toward it at present. It's better than "Can't do" or "Won't do."

I suggest to have a thread pinned with the list of requests and the possibility to vote directly in the thread, so the new users can vote to each of the requests.
@barbudo2005 That would weight things heavily in favour of the most popular requests.
It is best if users search for what they want, then vote for it. If they really want to find the most popular requests they can sort the forum by order of votes.
