There are often duplicate entrys for one program version. this makes it hard to find out information. Maybe Deployments Tips should have a standardized name like <manufacturer> <program name> <version> <architecture>.
Also merging should be possible. So users can merge duplicated entrys or inform staff to merge this entrys.28 votes
Definitely. We have some clean up to do and are working to see if we can provide a simple way to crowd source so helpful members of the community like yourself might be able to participate. Please know that we are working to clean things up as an ongoing task right now. For a bit more on this and how it is intended to work, please see my blog post on the matter at http://www.itninja.com/blog/view/tagging-stuff-on-itninja
On the public user profile pages, I'd like to see top contributions highlighted (sorted by votes). Users should be proud of their contributions to ITNinja and be encouraged to share their profile page to show off their ninja skills.21 votes
Like all suggestions here, if you’d like to see this, please vote it up to see it done sooner!
As opposed to a PM feature, keep my question public but let me invite specific members of the community to come and answer it. This way I can ask specific people questions, but everyone still benefits from the question and answer.21 votes
A spell check button or allowing in-browser spell check engines to detect misspellings in the text fields (especially blog posts).21 votes
After a certain number of people rate something, I'd like bonus points based on the rating assigned. For example, 10 people have rated my blog article and it is rated as a 4-star post, therefore I get a couple of bonus points for having posted something valuable.20 votes
Upvoting an answer is great, but often times there are comments further down in the thread that should be acknowledged. I'd like to see a way to vote on comments in threads with something either similar to the upvoting system for answers or by just being able to give them a star or something similar.13 votes
I like the idea of a “this helped me” counter for comments. Voting doesn’t work so good here because votes change the display order so the highest voted are on top and comments need to remain a linear fix-ordered list.
The concern here is that there are several ways to vote, rank and rate things already and adding another could increase the complexity of the site overall. That said, doing something here is a good idea so we will do more research to determine what would work best.
I think it looks cleaner to be able to format text as code on the comments as well. I currently enter a new answer to keep it legible.13 votes
We will do this, but on the back end, it is a non-trivial change and that is the reason for the delay. Right now comments are plain text so to implement this we’ll need to implement a change to all comments, converting them to HTML.
First, add a section to the ITNinja software library to add custom inventory rules needed for software like dropbox, Chrome and others that do not have an entry in the Uninstall registry key to inventory.
Then, give a K1000 the ability to add this through the old AppDeploy add-in once it's changed to ITNinja.11 votes
When a person reaches Black belt, he should be informed about his successful contribution and availability of the award through a mail. As we are unsure about the reward delivery. Is the Black belt award program still on?9 votes
There seems to be an issue with session state maintenance.9 votes
Thank you, we are looking into this. If anyone is able to reproduce a situation please share as that will greatly help us in identifying and resolving this issue.
Actually when you are writing a blog post that can be lengthy and with images as well the only option to save it is the save button that publishes it immediately.
Should be nice to have a way to save it as ''draft'' and only when you are satisfied with the layout and the content you really publish it.9 votes
This is a pretty good idea. Until we get around to implementing such a feature, you can actually “delete” it (we don’t really delete, just hide). Once you are happy with it you can “Show” it again. Deleted/Hidden content is only viewable by the author and admins, others just see a message that the content is hidden with a reason when available.
While there's an awesome reward for reaching Black Belt, there's nothing for reaching grandmaster in IT Ninja. It would be great to see a form of recognition for earning this achievement on IT Ninja. The reward should be something presentable in any sysadmin's workspace, promote IT Ninja as a valuable resource, and be the envy of other items in the office.7 votes
I think we are lucky to have the budget to develop, host, support and manage this site already. The fact that we can send prizes all over the world is amazing. While I like the idea of adding something for the Grandmaster level, a physical prize may not be possible. Grandmaster was added so that those reaching black-belt still had something to shoot for. Maybe we should add a “Super-Grandmaster” level!
I have noticed some questions that don't have any tags applied to them. This will make it less likely that these questions will appear when future users search for specific content. It might be nice if others could add tags to a question or blog post to help with this categorization.7 votes
We love this suggestion and are planning on implementing it. Can’t guarantee when just yet, but it’s in the works.
"Unanswered" questions should be sortable by number of replies / answers so it is easy to see questions with 0 answers.
Create some sort fields for advanced searches.6 votes
Note that for questions that have not been marked as answered we have a dedicated tab at http://itninja.com/question/unanswered
This request is related, but different: to show questions that have not received any answers at all.
Unable to edit our answers, but we can edit our comments. May lead to excessive double posts to correct type-o's in Answers.
Also noticed Answers do not support formatting when using Chrome.
Example: http://itninja.com/question/unattend-error-about-oobesystem6 votes
We will definitely be adding the ability to edit answers soon. That is very high on our list of things that didn’t make the release date ;)
Appdeploy used to have a post on it's homepage to display the most frequently used and/or most popular packaging tips per week or month.
This was very helpful and quick way of stumbling upon software packages that you have already deployed that you may not have know that they had been updated and require repackaging and redeployment.
It is aslo a great way to learn new skills when you see a solution to a difficult software package deployment.6 votes
We’ve got popular software listed now on the research page. Like AppDeploy it is based on all time activity and not just a week or a month. We’ll see if that is something we can work in down the road (as such I’ll keep this request in an Under Review state).
By this I mean it would be nice to see vendor submitted information segregated from the user submitted stuff. Seeing 100 Kace blogs and articles is nice but only when I want to. It makes it difficult to find and sift through what people are asking or posting.5 votes
We are looking for an intuitive way to provide this capability. One method would be to support the exclusion of certain tags in search results (right now it is inclusive). Would love to hear any ideas members may have for a good way to do this (will likely need to be some method of tag filtering)
Remove this feedback option as it really slows down the useability of your website! The initial page loads but you are unable to click on anything whil it is still loading the feedback tab at the side...5 votes
We will be removing the UserVoice widget from the site and replacing it with a standard link in the site footer.
When viewing http://www.itninja.com/blog I would like to see the latest blogs and maybe only the first 100 words of each instead of the entire blog post.5 votes
Thank you. We will watch votes for this to judge interest so we may determine prioritization.
If there are suggested answers to a post and the original poster hasn't selected an answer or marked it answered in, say 7 days, they might get an email reminder, or be prompted upon login to review their open questions list. Hard to know what needs answers with so many not marked as answered.5 votes
It is a good idea, but as we are just beginning to implement email notifications so it could be a little while before we get to this.
For now know that anybody logged into the site may mark a question as answered (or unanswered) so the hope is that those question-answering-types like yourself will mark them answered when you think they are answered (and anyone who disagrees may undo it). The hope is that this will be more effective than encouraging those who may not care to come back to do so themselves, but we shall see.
