I recall I had a PR to remove this feature and we deferred to v2, though I can't find it anymore. I may be confused with another feature. Is it time to just remove it instead of fix it?
I hardly get questions related to sponsorships in form.
A clean removal of sponsorship would require a database schema change.
The general problem is, that we hardly know what our users are doing.
As per the draft release notes for 1.3.0 we discussed last week, Sponsorship is noted as deprecated. I don't think it was listed as such before that, and furthermore this does not seem to be documented anywhere (e.g. admin guide, config_defaults_inc.php), which is something that needs to be done prior to releasing 1.3.0.
I don't use this feature myself.
+1 to that.
But we can do the removal of sponsorship in 2 steps
That sounds great on paper, but to do this right we should really setup a proper survey (like rombert wanted to do several years ago, leading me to setup Limesurvey, but that never got anywhere)
I remembered it and that's why I thought it's better in this case to ask users in a simple way instead of not asking them.
I'm concerned that
What's the problem for users and for us if we write just something like:
The MantisBT team would like to remove the following features in next version.
Please provide feedback at  if keeping this functionality is essential for your usage of MantisBT.
