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. Display the most read Software Package deploys per week.

    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.

    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).

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. Answer does not go at the end.

    I just answered a Q and my answer ended up somewhere in the middle of the flow of answers, and not at the end. This makes it difficult to follow the flow of the answers provided and looks like mine is an earlier (dismissed) answer and not the latest one.

    We are indeed planning to address this. As answers are sorted by rating it is not reliable that your new entry would always appear on the bottom. We intend to provide a success message and highlight the new entry in the near future so this is less confusing. Thank you!

  5. 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!

  6. 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.

  7. 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

  8. Bring Back The PM

    It would be nice to see a Private Message system added to ITNinja. One very good thing about AppDeploy was the ability to have someone pm you and ask you for help outside of the forum. Or to run something by someone before putting it out there in the worry that you'll look stupid. (Something I've done myself)

  9. Clean the Questions and Blogs

    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.

    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)

  10. 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!

  11. Inclusion of OS Patch Content

    I'd like to see the site provide pages for OS patches in the same way software is covered to discuss deployment notes and associate questions, blogs and links.

  12. I'd like to see poorly rated content worth less

    After a certain number of people rate something poorly, subtract points from the user based on the rating assigned. For example, 10 people have rated by blog post and it has a 1-star rating, therefore I loose a couple of points originally provided for having submitted it.

  13. Ability to invite specific users to answer a question

    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.
