Nothing sensitive, just that some people don't understand the concept of
a community driven project. It's not about "they should", etc. but it's
The same answers are given because it's the reality. Loads of wishes,
loads of things to improve or even fix and a limited number of people
who are doing it.
And yes, the same response "I'm not a good programmer" is also very common.

There is a voting option in forge. Until now I see 1 vote. Either not
many people miss it or you could motivate people to vote for it. Does
the voting work? Well, it has been introduced recently, but you can see
at  that the two most voted bugs already have patches which are
currently in the review process (the second one on the list is already
included in 4.7, but backporting to earlier branches isn't straightforward).

I'm not taking anything personally, and believe me, it is very hard to
offend me :-)
We can discuss the idea, but still someone has to invest time in it to
actually build it.
The point is that the TYPO3 project needs as many people as possible
from the community to help with the project. If you want something
changed, report it, discuss it, pick up the (as tiny as it is) project,
collect the people to build it and in the end make it happen.
