To continue discussion where is it relevant:
Actually most users vote on metabugs not because they think all related child should be looked into, but because some of them seem important to them (or sometimes even them mean some issues which they think are covered by this, but not specified in the BTS at all).Originally Posted by [b
While not that obvius with anticheat metabug, which has only a few childern, thus is very obvious with AI metabug - http://bugs.armed-assault.net/view.php?id=2202. I think most people will agree some issues here are important, and other more a nit picking.
If the priority system should allow us to decide what to fix, it must allow us to identify a few top issues. If 30 issues are considered to be of same importance, it does not help us to make any decision at all.
I repeat: I ignore votes on metabugs, as they do not fit into my decision making process at all.
I do not think they serve any real purpose, I think they support bad reporting habits. Bugs need to be reported as individual issues with concrete particular repro steps, not as "Everything is broken and needs to be reworked".Originally Posted by [b
