Indeed. I admit they could be clearer. As you've probably noticed, we have hundreds of ideas and some of them are a categorize. Ideally, the status would 'say it all' so to speak, but sometimes a loose definition is needed on top of the status title. I'm open to other status title suggestions.
Fair enough about the idea linking. Our thought in these situations is most likely coming from a place of "lets prioritize the consolidation of the discussions so the idea gets a fair amount of votes indicitive of it's popularity". Regardless, you're right. Please point us to more of the popular ideas which need updates. I honestly thought "Discount Family Subscriptions" had a status. I will remedy this now.
Repeat TRACK Mode hasn't really had an update since it was changed to "under consideration" on GetSatisfaction several years ago. I moved the idea over at the launch of the new community. The idea has the same status as it had on GetSatisfaction, but it would be nice if someone at Spotify could give us an update. It has been "under consideration" for several years. It's not going to stay as "under consideration" forever, right? I heard this feature might be implemented eventually and that it's not a priority.
It would be nice to give the idea an update and let everyone know what's up. =)
