I wanted to bring up something that myself and a ton of other teachers and mentors are feeling. The forums for Education Edition are great, and a step in the right direction. But I do not believe it is enough.
Many teachers love using MC in their classrooms, and therefore you guys get a ton of feedback from a lot of different places. Although we can post all of it here, the most of a confirmation we get that it was seen was a reply of "Thank you for your feedback."
I know you guys are busy people, and I'm sure that the developers see at least some of the suggestions and bug posts, but there seriously needs to be a way to track what was actually added and what is being thought about. I've suggested something like Trello in the past, which would allow mentors and creators to see that their ideas actually mean something when they show up on the board.
There are still many bugs from the early days of EE that we have reported, and time and time again it's thanks for the feedback without actually ever getting fixed or even a sign it's being worked on.
All we are asking for is a better way to actually be involved. We want to help EE grow and see it succeed. But the way it is being worked on makes it seem like the developers push an update every couple months and go on vacation. (Obviously this is not happening, but it gets the point across).
And the most ridiculous part of this mess is that, every single other version of Minecraft has a tracker. Every Version. Why not EE? Even the Minecraft Java launcher, and Minecraft Dungeons has a bug tracker!
I and many others are so disappointed in EE's development. All we want is to actually have community involvement. Show us that our bug reports matter. Show us that the beta testing for new version actually does something.
The forums were built to involve the community, but obviously it is not enough. Please consider making a bug tracker.
