We are finding that a much larger percentage of our contributors are now interacting with us through social media than through this area of the forum. We are also fortunate enough to have sales teams around the world who already have a system in place to log customer needs and feedback.
In order to get that information directly to you we have therefore set up a Twitter account @istockneed
For those Tweet refuseniks, the wonderful KelvinJay will be reposting those needs here in the future.
Be nice to him, he is just the messenger!
