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 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...)

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...)

Add an 'are you sure' page when deleting your submissions

Submitted by formula_86 on March 3, 2010 to Annoyance, Website suggestions

When deleting a submission you don't want anymore, it doesn't bring up a confirmation page asking if you are sure you want to delete this submission.

Have it so that you are asked if you are sure you want to delete your submission.

Allow both problem & solution images

Submitted by bernard on February 19, 2010 to Website suggestions

It's frustrating that you can only upload one picture to show your submission. You have to choose to show your problem, the solution to it, or a combination of both.

The problem with a combination image is that you see a really small (more...)

In the title. If server space/bandwidth are an issue, cut down the max filesize to 1 or 1.5MB.

Warning message if you have had a submission marked as removed

Submitted by formula_86 on April 6, 2010 to Website suggestions

If someone purposely posts a dumb, nothing to do with Windows 7 or this site submission, there should be a strike system in place and after you have posted say three offending submissions, either long or nyp will ban your IP address. The warning message (more...)

Implement the system as suggested above.

Update the year in the copyright notice for this website

Submitted by formula_86 on March 5, 2010 to Website suggestions

Where it says '© 2009 Long Zheng istartedsomething.com', why not update it to say '© 2010 Long Zheng istartedsomething.com' instead?

Update it as suggested above.

Long Zheng : Register Windows8Taskforce.com?

Submitted by patternjake on January 13, 2010 to Website suggestions

Well since the recent talk of Windows 8 (Even if that is its codename, it is just good reason to assume that Windows 8 will follow Windows 7 to stay logical), I think it would be a good idea to at least register windows8taskforce.com because I am sure (more...)

Register it now! ;P

Windows Taskforce idea revisited

Submitted by .Chris on January 2, 2010 to Website suggestions

The following is just a rough idea. Fell free to post ideas

Given you said you are thinking of developing a new taskforce site using the heresanidea.net backend, why not create an Windows Taskforce?

The name can be unique, (more...)

Allow video clip files to be uploaded as well as picture files

Submitted by formula_86 on March 26, 2010 to Usability, Website suggestions

Sometimes if someone is experiencing a UX quirk, a screenshot is not enough and a video clip is required to show the problem. Yes, the user could upload the video to YouTube and place a link here, but wouldn't it be better to be able to upload video (more...)

Even if you impose say a 10mb limit on uploaded clips, allow the following formats to be uploaded: wmv, avi, mpg, mov, flv, mp4, f4v, m4v, 3gp, mkv, mod, qt, asf and mpeg. The quality wouldn't matter a great deal, since we only want to see the UX (more...)
