# How can one tell if a feature request posted here has been seen by someone who can attend to it?

When one posts a feature request here, is there any way to tell whether any responsible person has read it, i.e. a person responsible for developing new features?

• @AsafKaragila ; ha ha ha ha. Are you saying there is no way to contact people responsible for this sort of thing? Are they all hiding in a cave in Afghanistan? Do they exist at all? ${}\qquad{}$ – Michael Hardy Apr 23 '15 at 23:38

• I honestly don't know. I often wondered about this as well. Which is why I upvoted your question, and promptly remembered Antonius Block talking to Death in his priest disguise, in the confessional booth. "Block: I cry to Him in the dark, but there seems to be no one there." – Asaf Karagila Apr 23 '15 at 23:42
• @quid : What is supposed to happen after six-to-eight weeks? ${}\qquad{}$ – Michael Hardy Apr 23 '15 at 23:43

• @quid : I never heard of that before. – Michael Hardy Apr 23 '15 at 23:53
