    Please ask him to allow notification icons of all apps to be shown on lock screen. Why only 5? And also combine same type of feedbacks into one in feedback app.

    Ask when they are going to try to improve the touch experience in W10. They've been neglecting that side of the O/S for to long.

    My 2;

    mobile hotspot (while still showing enabled) goes to sleep when the screen times out (5 minutes is the max setting.)

    Bring back the "show" voice command from WinMo, "show contact name" which would bring up the contact, now this prompts a web search

    While using mobile hotspot the XBox360 can't connect to Live (It did in 8.1)...

    Glance's double tap to wake feature has disappeared. (Nokia 928)

    Bluetooth text to speech messaging with Audi MMI pauses I.e. Music stops "message from xyz, read it or ignore it?". When you reply read it music resumes for 3 seconds or so then the message is read. Whereas on 8.1 this was a fluid process.

    Old people tile was more aesthetically pleasing

    First of all, and importantly thank him for his hard work - fending off the aggro he gets 24/7 is not easy and oh buy him a beer :)

    Secondly, pass along my apologies if my rant about the photo app in the feedback depressed anyone (it was a rather long essay, I might have been overly harsh lol) ).

    To the questions, if his taking them.

    1) whats happening to landscape support?

    2) can he shed any light on the lock screen and the lock screen app(s) i.e tetra lockscreen, live lock screen + will api's be released to developers?

    3) whats up with not allowing users to set a static ip address on the device (certain lumia models have that option but not all) and when are they going add that to the list of features needed by pro-users?

    5) can they add a darn stop button to the now playing bar?
    It's one of my biggest pet peeves with WP - having a separate tile just to clear the now playing bar, it's clunky, inefficient and makes for a terrible experience. For instance I use stop+clear, The stop tile is pressed, there is brief animation where the app opens then closes.

    6) Ability to create a full offline backup via a desktop / store client - is a must - is one in the works?
    This is going to be needed going forward as my last backup was 834 Megs and I don't have that many apps or games installed either.
    They get stored to your onedrive and count towards to your space usage. So if you have 5 gigs (as new users for outlook.com will have), 5 or so backups and it's full.

    7) How does telemetry data quantify user enjoyment?
    for instance I don't necessarily enjoy being shown a grid of photos when loading the photo app although it's more efficient. I'd rather a see a cycling panorama of my favourite images / moments, it's one of those things that is hard to describe. It's one of those random sparks that can brighten up your day. I've already said my piece about the photo app on the feedback app so I'm not going to repeat it here.

    8) Any thoughts in adding the ability to amend after it's added / down vote feedback?
    There are tonnes of 4 word "feedback" about something... which are extremely vague.

    9) Quite hours, it's not tied to location services on the desktop so why tie it to the on the phone?
    I understand the need for geofencing but what about the regions where Cortana is not available?
    Quite hours is an awesome feature and more people should be able to benefit from it.

    10) Double tap to wake for the 950 and 950 XL, any thoughts on that?

    11) Garage apps, I'm sure some are curious and many frustrated so I'll ask on their behalf why don't we see UWP's from these teams?

    12) Glance background, before we could do something like this but now we can't.... as the glance background app has been made defunct. What are his thoughts and when will we see something better incorporated into the O/S or a return of the app?
    glance-screen-msn-weather-bg.jpg

    13) What phones does he use personally :)

    I've got a few more questions however I need to get back to my online assessment lol.

    I went from 7.8 to 8.1. What did I miss in 8.0? There are still some things in 7.8 that I liked better like wireless sync, deep social media integration, and I had the Focus for nearly 4 years and it did not crash even once.

    I think all you need to tell Gabe is to quit taking away our toys.
    You missed a "loading", "resuming" free OS, that seems to be the main thing we got in 8.1......

    I am lucky to live in Barcelona, where the Mobile World Congress is held every year. Gabriel Aul has posted on twitter that he will be meeting us insiders on a bar, so I will be going and I would like to get some ideas of what would be the major feedback coming from the WCentral community.
    I feel like I have so many ideas and feedback and things to talk about with him and the rest of the Microsoft team that will be there, but I usually am a bit messy when it comes to writing down those things.

    So feel free to give me your ideas, lists, suggestions or feedback that you think must be heard! Please be it specific things, not just "make Windows 10 Mobile snappier". The first thing I'll do myself is congratulate him for his work on twitter and the enormous patience he has with some of the most passionate tech-communities I've seen :P

    Let me know guys!
    Please ask him what is the future, if there is any, about double tap to wake on 950 and 950XL.

    First, I would suggest a genuine thank you. We here, (assuming mostly Insiders) get the chance like no other Mobile OS folk have. To get to test preview software. Of course they get our help for "free", but we get to really have the chance to get updates fast, faster than any other Mobile OS, even if not fast enough for some people. Then, I would say, lets get the core apps TOP NOTCH, no compromises, make them shine. Show what the OS and phones can do with core apps.... In a consistent way. This, I think is the most important. More important than any new feature. Then, make the user keyboard input first in class, snappy, fluid, consistent, not covering up fields when typing. Lastly, thank him again for being willing to spend time with real folks who use the phones and OS. Don't make the visit with him all complaining; rather positive and realistic. I hope this helps, and good luck. Have fun!

    Ask him why my Lumia 520 power button doesn't work properly. Seriously, if you are going to meet him you're supposed to chill and have fun. Not ask questions and give feedback. You have the feedback back app for a purpose. I bet if you ask Gabe about feedback and new stuff he'll tell you "hold my beer while..."

    Why can't W10M do digital audio output, i.e. to be able to use an external DAC for music listening.

    Windows phones can't be taken seriously for audio listening without this capability.

    Since it has been a feature of Windows for 10+(?) years now, through either digital outputs on MOBO or through USB, and if W10M is using the same core/kernel (whatever), why can't this be easily offered as an option through the microUSB?

    Thanks!

    Ask him if he is happy with the market share of WP/W10M and why any customer should stay with Microsoft phones when all MS apps are available and in at least as good condition on iOS/Android...

    And, if he's in the mood of talking, ask him if he knows why Microsoft implemented the region/language lock on Xbox one, plain stupidity or due to Groove?

    I really want to have the ability to run two apps at once (is split screen) on my Lumia device. We can snap 4 apps to the screen of Windows 10 but can only use one at a time on Windows 10 Mobile. Tell him this is 2016 and windows fan needs the split screen on their Lumia devices.

    Better cache management on w10m or atleast include a feature set(by MS) to clean app cache every month or two for every app installed via store.
    One important thing is to make w10m bug free to do simple tasks like calling,messaging w/o even needing an update.
    This is something I miss. Currently the Pictures- app is nearly 3 GB on my phone in the internal storage, and my guess is it's cache data from browsing the images and videos on OneDrive. I have set pictures and videos to be stored on SD.
    Would like to clean that up.

    ^ this is enough, it should spark a conversation worth at least an hour of your time and a transcript for us would be greatly appreciated
    I'm not saying you to bash him, but please tell him that the OS is buggy as hell, the design teams did a very poor and soulless job with W10M with all these fugly, hard to access and annoying inconsistencies.
