'Hotly Commented' sort option

Submitted by broccauley on June 29, 2009 to Website suggestions

Currently the taskforce only sorts by how recent the suggestion was made, or by its popularity. However, this causes the problem where slightly older or misunderstood suggestions which are be being debated heavily (perhaps with comments giving the suggestion (more...)

Also add the ability to sort suggestions by the 'comment hotness' of the suggestions. This 'hotness' would be a weighted combination of the number of comments and how recently those comments were made.

Change colour of Taskforce initiative jumpbar

Submitted by Neville on April 16, 2009 to Usability, Website suggestions

Its grey and I completely missed it - associated it with the browser, not the site

Change background colour to match site, or move jumplist to linkbar on right.

[Website] Tags for this site.

Submitted by KairosDrasis on April 8, 2009 to Usability, Website suggestions

when creating my last suggestion (report button for the website) I realized that we need some tags to help search. Many other sites do this and I thought it would be a great addition to the site.

(this was suggested somewhere else but (more...)

Add a "Tags" box similar to youtube's tags. Possibly come up with common tags and display these tags when adding to a submission or searching. Somewhat similar when using firefox's web search box.

Website search needs a "Sort by" feature.

Submitted by xombie on October 25, 2009 to Website suggestions

Right now search results seem to be arranged quite randomly.

A sort by Date, Number of Comments, Rating, Fixed, etc would be very useful.

Integrate this site with Windows Sidebar Gadgets/Live Gadgets

Submitted by jc4life05 on April 30, 2009 to Usability, Website suggestions

When I want to know how many comments I have on a particular submission, I have to come to this site every single time. When I want to know if somebody has rated the submission, I have to do the same thing by going to the site.

What if (more...)

My solution is to integrate this site with Windows Sidebar Gadgets or Live Gadgets, because this would allow the user an opportunity to monitor their progress, while not cutting into other activities. This has the following benefits:

Elect Moderators

Submitted by Neville on April 16, 2009 to Website suggestions

Site maintenance remains a problem, Long can't do everything. Time spent moderating eats up time spent adding features to webite. More moderators are needed, but queston is how to appoint and recall.

Election month every 3 months.

Users nominate themselves to be a moderator with a title of
"Make <name> a moderator" and website suggestion tag.

Other users vote on it.

At end of month, (more...)

[WEBSITE] Automatically delete suggestions with a score of -15 or worse

Submitted by limulus on April 9, 2009 to Website suggestions

Some suggestions are just abysmally stupid, others are outright spam.

Examples:

Spam: "my boyfriend was the one who spammed" (http://www.windows7taskforce.com/view/1463)
(more...)

What these "suggestions" all have in common is an extremely low rating. The community isn't stupid. If the balanced score (+promotions -demotions) is -15 or worse you can be sure the suggestion is either rubbish, insulting, spam, or all (more...)

Suggestions with a rating of -15 or lower are hidden from the "Popular Submissions" list.

[Website] Move related submissions location in add submission

Submitted by Neville on April 8, 2009 to Usability, Website suggestions

Related submissions are very helpful in preventing duplicates, but apparently not quite foolproof.

Move it under the title field and relabel as Related and duplicate submissions.
Also showing the votes status might help.

Please make the rules and mission for this website a bit more clear.

Submitted by pwbailey3 on November 10, 2009 to Website suggestions

I posted a new anomaly (read: bug) and was almost unanimously voted off the island. The submission categories absolutely include "BUG" and the requirement states: "*Required. What is wrong with it at the moment.". Why have this ability (more...)

Have an "About Us" page with a concise mission statement, clear rules, and dos and don'ts. There are no website rules posted, so one presently has to extrapolate the rules from the available selections. There is also no clear rule as to (more...)

Last comment edit time comes up with the wrong time altogether

Submitted by nyp on October 26, 2009 to Website suggestions

Look at the screenshot. I made a comment on October 26, which is correct, but when I edit it, the last edit time is on October 25. o_O

Fix it, obviously.
