One thing I’d really love to see is for some way for the community to see and track bugs/feature requests within the engine. It would be ideal to be able to also vote on them and for you to be able to sort and filter lets say against “Most Viewed/Voted This Week/Month/etc”, “InProgress”, “Pending”, [EngineVersion], [SubmissionTime/Age of Submission], possibly even by dept such as Audio, Rendering, etc.
Another thing directly within the engine I think would be huge for the engine would be to Auto-Generate AnswerHub tickets and Auto-Subscribe the user to them. If the engine had your Epic Account credentials logged in and when a crash/exception gets triggered within the engine, during the window that asks the user if they want to add comments, etc, for there to be a checkbox or button that says “Send To AnswerHub” and auto creates an post on AnswerHub and even sends a log to the developers at Epic with the crash data that includes a link to the given AnswerHub post. You could then be subscribed to the thread and if let’s say an issue is resolved by Epic being able to reproduce the issue and log it in JIRA, for that to be linked also to you and the post to be notified by email for instance… “[UE-12345] In Response To: [Your AnswerHub Thread Title] Has Been Logged”.
To take this a step further, you could get updates also that say, "[UE-12345] Was Just Assigned To An Epic Developer/Is Now Pending/Resolved and the final icing on the cake would be if it was resolved and there is a GitHub commit prior to the next release that contains the code, that it could notify you saying it was resolved and here is where you can get the code on GitHub if you want it now.
Another idea is not only letting the community vote on these but vote the level of priority it is to them. You’d have a bar graph that says… Low, Medium, High, Epic which refers to the scale of how severe the issue is for a developer and/or team and the community ticks off any one of those options. The community and also Epic staff can really get a much more detailed view on how the current issues affect others. This also adds another level of filtering when looking through this interface.
Anyways, just wanted to share some thoughts on making this process better and take it easy!
EDIT: One other idea that would also be huge is adding an area to the Exception Window within the editor as you are typing your comment, is predictively trying to suggest AnswerHub posts that could be related with the links included/clickable based on the comments being typed in as they are typed in, thx
EDIT 2: Another thought, and maybe this is only visible from the user to Epic and not the community but for a member/team to say when their project is going to ship, that Epic could pull up a list seeing when projects coming up are going to launch and that they are currently affected by issues over a given severity level that have yet to be resolved
