#339 closed enhancement (wontfix)

Plugins works/broken vote should require a support post if broken is chosen

Description

Right now we encourage users to make a post, but if we could require it for when they pick broken, that might actually get things fixed?

+1. Seems like this could be a good impetus for finding faster solutions.

Otto's reply from the duplicate ticket #480 reflects my stance as well:

It already redirects you to the support forum form when you mark a plugin as broken.

However, at the time this change was made, it was decided that actually requiring you to fill in the form was overkill. The data would then reflect only the number of support forum threads made, realistically. We can get that information directly.

So -1, no, I'm against this. A refactor may be in order, but this is not the way.
