What makes a great feature request

Would you like to influence where we go next with cPanel & WHM? Consider participating in our feature request site. Here are some things to keep in mind when you submit the next great idea for the industry’s leading control panel.

Make sure that it’s actually a feature request. It might be better as a tech support request.
Does your idea restore a feature to full working order? If so, that’s a problem and needs the attention of our tech support team. They will work with you to resolve your issue, or they’ll know how best to escalate the issue to our development teams.

Make sure that your idea doesn’t already exist under another name.
There are many ways to describe an idea. One person might use the technical term for something while another may express it using more broad terms. For example, a feature request about MySQL may be under ‘databases’. Before you submit a new feature request, try searching the site using synonyms like this. Your idea may already exist, but put a different way.

Make sure that we haven’t already covered your concern in another way.
There are many ways to solve a particular problem. cPanel is a product full of solutions to problems. Before submitting a feature request, look for solutions to your problem that we may have already shipped. You can always review our documentation, ask in our forums, or talk with your account manager too.

Can't get in to feature requests page. It's indicated that my login here should be carried over automatically. But the login form is rejecting the + in my preferred email address which was accepted here already for some time in the forums. I also tried registering in the features area in case it hadn't carried over, but I get the same error if I use my preferred email address with a + sign. I can register only a different email address without a +.
