The Idea Exchange was created to give users direct access to R&D and Marketing to make suggestions and then vote amongst themselves which they thought were the most important. There have been tons of great ideas and we have even implemented some of them into our outgoing products. We do recognize those users whose idea does spark R&D development on a new feature by listing the new feature and their name in the LabVIEW Help documentation of the releasing version that has their inspired feature. This is all done in the spirit of a beneficial community and introducing such a large reward ($4300) for accepted ideas could potentially led to legal battles around duplicate and similarly worded but different posts. To maintain the sense of community and still maintain this great avenue of user feedback, we will not offer a copy of LabVIEW for an accepted idea.
I propose that NI award anyone who posts an idea (especially this one) which is eventually accepted receive a free copy of the LabVIEW Developer Suite as an award for their creativity.
