The lack of complaints could be due to the necro thread having ended with this being put onto the todo list. Just because there's no comments to a thread doesn't mean there's not a lack of interest for it. So if they post soon after it's put onto the todo list, they get yelled at for not giving any time for it to be added, but if they wait too long then that's lack of interest. What's the appropriate time to wait for these items, so we know when to put it on our calendar?
For example, THIS
thread has no replies to it in the nearly 2 years since "/color text 64" syntax was put onto the todo list, but it's a common request in several channels I've been in.
