Vote on features for BBS 1.2

This is an experiment. I have been hoping that github adds a vote feature on issues but as this has not happened I am looking for alternatives. As Disqus has added that feature I want to give it a try.

Here are the rules: please vote on the comments (up/down votes) I have added (from the github features). If a feaure is missing you can add it here but it’s up to you to contact me and make sure it goes to github as that is the only backlog I use. Feel free to comment on the feature itself as well. 

If you need more info about the features use the number as a ref and look them up on github.

I will close the votes on december 1st.
