We have lots of things to fix and lots of features to implement but would love you to suggest what you feel is important to help us validate our priorities and add new ones!

  1. Duplicate Programs etc.

    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.

    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

  2. Show top contributions from user

    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.

    Like all suggestions here, if you’d like to see this, please vote it up to see it done sooner!

  3. Add the ability to format selected text as code in the comment field.

    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.

    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.

  4. Remove feedback buttons from site

    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...

    We will be removing the UserVoice widget from the site and replacing it with a standard link in the site footer.

  5. Legend shown next to tags indicating meaning of colors (or at least tool tip bubbles)

    Colors are nice, indication of what they mean would be helpful.
    Filtering of types/colors would be nice.
    When user selects a tag, text entered to that point should be replaced by that tag.
    Typing more text should always reduce list of tags, sometimes it seems to grow (and rather than or).
    Shorter tags should sort ahead of longer ones.

  6. Add contributor of the day/week/month to keep the top contributor's list fresh.

    What you will find is that often the same people will stay at the top of lists like this because they joined early on and your competition will go stale. Leave them there, but have a second list of top contributors in the day/week/month to get your secondary contributors going.

    Thank you for the suggestion, we do really like the idea of finding more enticing ways to provide top user contributions. By time period as you suggest is one way we could do this. We also like the idea of using topics as verticals so that there are subject-matter experts recognized for their contributions and knowledge.

  7. How to remove items from the activity feed

    Question: How do I remove stuff from my Activity page that I don't care about any more. One general problem with this new site is that I can't find anything I want in the mass of too many search results or too long lists.

    And please be specific in your answer. For example, don't say, "it's in your profile". Say, "after logging in, choose Activity, then the Interests tab, then scroll down and down until you see the heading "Questions, Blogs, and Links Followed". I think I'm doing twice as much scrolling on your site to find anything, as I…

    We will add a “clear activity” feature, but such does not exist at the moment. You can stop following things and they will stop resulting in updates to your feed, but right now you can’t remove items from the feed.

    We are working on a major update to the profile area that will make it easier to manage what you are following.

    A good suggestion, thanks!

  8. When I give feedback, etc

    I would like all my submissions that I make when loggged in to be accessible through my profile. Today i submitted a system request through "contact" and it just went into the "ether".

    Any "feedback", "contact" requests, "answers" , "share" , etc to please be accessible through my profile

    For now, you may look to your activity feed but the intention is to make the content counts on the profile page link to search results that will limit the items returned to the relevant data.
