An important step to take, before any request for proposals (RFP) can be put up, is to gather feedback from users who have interacted with the software for a while now. Many members have been part of the software process since testnet went up, so the hope is to gather constructive and realistic expectations in this thread that can serve to guide developers about perceptions and actual usage of the software. This thread will be an open and evolving thread of practical ideas that will help improve the Decred software. Good ideas gathered from here that will have maximum impact (and are practically attainable) will then be voted on informally to get an idea of what users want, which can then help developers understand the use of the software better. Do not be afraid to voice frustration with the software you've experienced, but let's turn that into something constructive and find a practical way to improve on it. The RFPs will end up making Decred better and that is where the development subsidy goes. As the network churns and grows, the development expands. This is the first step in that process.
