[WEBSITE] Let the community flag the "Fixed" status

Submitted by limulus on April 8, 2009 to Website suggestions

If you look into the "Fixed" category you will find precisely two entries.

However, a much larger number of suggestions HAVE been fixed (as evident by the problem description, by comments or by the label "[FIXED]" added (more...)

A powerful solution to the problem: Let the COMMUNITY vote on whether something has been fixed. Once 5 people have marked a suggestion as fixed, change its status.

Once this feature is added, the community will weed out the fixed ones in (more...)

Wow. This site has gotten very immature! Moderator needed!

Submitted by fiji on April 19, 2009 to Website suggestions

I remember a few months ago or in 2008 this site was more mature than it is now. There are tons of attention seeking teens (aka Agent11) posting unhelpful and discouraging posts. Microsoft employees won't take this site seriously.

This site needs a moderator or a system of moderation.

I can see so many of our problem posted here are fixed inside new builds.
Would there be an option to allow users to post as fix when RC1 release?

Make a simple way to view a full-size image

Submitted by nyp on August 1, 2009 to Website suggestions

Currently, if you want to view an image at full-size, you need to right-click on the image, choose View Image and then manually edit the address bar.
This gets very annoying to do after a while.

Anything will work. Lightbox, direct linking to the image, on-page resizing...

Added a link that opens original image in new window/tab.

Just a question... is MS actually considering our Taskforce submissions?

Submitted by sfsdfd on June 29, 2009 to Annoyance, Bug, Website suggestions

I just noticed something, uh, interesting. Looking over there ---> and clicking on the "Status" categories produces some pretty disheartening results.

At present:

(1) Only one item is "under review" (more...)

Um... "the solution is left as an exercise for the reader." ;)
