Most of my interaction with the Atlassian website is either about trying to figure out some workaround to the mind-bogglingly complex and convoluted hodgepodge of half-implemented ideas that currently make up Jira, or interacting with suggestion tickets for really basic things (e.g. can we view things other than Epics in the Roadmap view?).
The years-old "next gen" version of Jira isn't usable yet for any reasonable-sized team, and the "classic" projects are chock full of problems that result from ideas being slapped in left and right with little regard for usability (want to see all the boards in a project? Easy! Just open a board, expand the left nav, select the dropdown showing the current board, and hope that this is one of the boards that will include a "show all boards" selection in the middle of the dropdown list for no apparent reason. Want to see all Dashboards? Click on Dashboards and choose "Show All Dashboards". Did you want to change the owner of a Dashboard? Oh. In that case, you have go through the admin navigation system - a different menu system altogether - and show the same list of dashboards on a different screen. Want to make two owners of a board? Open the board settings. Want two owners of a dashboard? Not possible. COME ON GUYS!)
It bothers me that Atlassian has the time and budget available to prototype gamifying their community website when we have been waiting years for basic functionality on their flagship product.
