Is there a good Q&A platform to integrate into WordPress?

Where can I propose a new plugin?

I have an idea for a new plugin. Where can I propose the idea for the plugin so that someone might pick it up? p.s: I won’t be willing to pay for it (it is not that important to me), but I still think it is a cool idea. I am also not going to […]
