If I was to divide my time on the forums to where I spend most of it, then 1/3 here 1/3 bugs, and the last third on the rest of the forums.
So yes we look and if you notice threads with something similar to [BLAH BLAH] in square brackets then that will tell you if I submitted the tool for inclusion, or otherwise. That's just my way of helping the other guys so they know there is no need to waste time looking at a given thread.
Sometimes I let threads set to see if they will gain traction from others who would also like to have them included into BT.
There are many tools, but as a team we don't see the need for them to be included, case in point, FireFox add-ons that a user could easily grab themselves.
