SuperMemo is not democratic

Users of SuperMemo often complain that they suggestions get ignored. They would naturally want to have more control over development. However, SuperMemo is not democratic. User feedback is welcome, but ultimate decisions must take into account a number of factors, e.g. technical limitations, available expertise, costs, trade secrets, market research, science of learning (which may be counterintuitive), etc.

a word from CEO: Development at SuperMemo World is driven by the science of learning, and by market research. In particular, is crafted to find a compromise between effective learning strategies and user needs. As such, the control of the development process cannot be in any way delegated to a third party. We always welcome your feedback though. SuperMemo for Windows is an exception in that it entirely focuses on improving learning strategies, esp. in reference to incremental reading. It seeks no compromise in terms of wide appeal. Again, it cannot relinquish control of development. On occasion, it can rely on outsourcing the development of subcomponents, however, the choice of tasks and their definition must be determined with complete subservience to the goal of efficient learning.

Why don't you implement?
