Voting System for courses suggestions

Craig Dennis mentions we check the Teacher's Notes for Courses Voting System but there is nothing on the Teacher's Notes section on this.

So how do you propose content or courses suggestion you would like to be covered or are missing or outdated.

After the recent company restructuring, I suspect the "voting" system may not be in use anymore.
But you can always make suggestions by contacting the Support staff directly.

Thanks Steven Parker , sincerely I don't like Treehouse after the restructuring: first of all, they have just removed stuff instead of adding features. - take for example the removal of Leadersboard which I could see how I rank against other students. In fact, I used to see your name at the top of the pack - you are genius!!- and I have always yearned to be there myself;

I still see the Leaderboards link at the top of the Community page. If you don't see it, there might be a technical problem and you could contact Support about that.

And I may have hit the top of the "points" list, but I've never been in the top 10 for "badges" ... yet. A lot of my points are from forum participation.

Steven Parker forget the badges, yours is a record!! I admire your willingness and taking time to answer our questions, u deserve a statue erected in a City of your choice for this achievement.

When I click the Leadersboard link I get this message:

Alright! Leaderboards are being removed from the core Treehouse experience

I emailed the support about it and the reply was:

"Thanks for reaching out. At this time we're running a short-term experiment where we've removed the leaderboards for 10% of our student base. During this test period, you will not have access to the leaderboard. We apologize for any inconvenience that this may have caused you"

Mind you this was in August 2019!! My dream to top the ranking just died like that!

Even musicians have the Music Charts, Programmers and Devs deserve theirs too!!

Wow, I had not heard about this "experiment"... I guess you just happen to be in the "lucky" few chosen to be in it. :cry: Maybe the "experiment" is to see what percentage of folks notice and complain.

I guess the best thing to do would be write again and ask if the "short term experiment" is over yet and could you please have your access restored. But it does sound like it going away for everyone might be a real possibility.
