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 there was a way that we could turn this into a gadget, so that we can keep track of our stats easily and without the burden of opening up an extra window (ie. Windows 7 Taskforce). Or better yet, what if there was a way to subscribe to a personalized feed of these statistics, rather than just the main submissions, because that includes other user's submissions and comments.

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:

1. Improves usability.
2. Prevents the accumulation of mail messages (ie. excess emails with similar names).
3. Cuts the time that it takes to keep up to date, in half.
