  1. Modify a principle in the Duke 21C Manifesto

    One of the principles of the Duke 21C Manifesto is stated as follows:
    ◾The purpose of education is to enrich lives and to help people achieve their individual and collective goals.
    Though I do agree with this principle, I think it overlooks the posibility that a person may not have their goals, individual or collective, defined clearly, or not at all. Education, should help an individual come in contact with varying aspects of human culture, be exposed to different ways of thinking, and other knowledge/understandings/tools that will help/facilitate him/her to explore the possibilities and find the goals h/she will strive…

  3. What happened to our tag cloud? I'

    Hi Ruby, I think we used to have a tag cloud. I'm in a conversation now with Kirstyn Leuner , a HASTAC Scholar, about this feature. We used to have one. Did we discontinue with the new site? I know some of us loved them (moi) and others hated them (Mandy). Like me, Kirstyn finds them very useful for searching a site and I find them a great "at a glance" of knowing which topics are most important to a topic. Can we put it back up again on the next version of the site? We need a map and…

    Upon investigation I found that although tag clouds were showing on individual posts, they were missing from some relevant places such as topic archives. I have restored them there and several other places. Please let me know if you find any other pages missing the tag cloud block.

    Thanks for catching this!

    This feature, or as close as we can currently come to it, has been added with the deployment of our new Drupal 7 site.

    We now offer two options for deletion:
    one option for the blocking (disabling) and retaining of the account, its username, content, and identifying information and another option for anonymizing the account name and details while retaining its user-generated content.

    For security and privacy reasons both options still require the intervention of a HASTAC site administrator.

  5. Sharing via Twitter, FB, + etc.

    I'd be great to have the option to share articles and content via Twitter, FB and Google+ buttons on blog post pages.

  8. improve Opportunities filtering/ sorting

    could you please add an option to sort by post date so that we could view the most recent posts, and not the ones we've already read?

  11. Star gazing groups when the weather allows. Exploring constellations that are observable.

    I have a fun idea for local support of the community where I am in Florida. For Youth and interested families. How do I present and collaborate with others,here?

    You can create a blog entry on our site to share your idea, or even create a group if you find other members who want to work on this with you. Get started at hastac.org/user/register and then hastac.org/node/add/blog .

  12. Remove word verification nonsense

    I can't get the word verification system to work at all, so I cannot register for an account or even send a comment via the contact page. This is the only way I've been able to find to air my concerns.

    UPDATE: I have heard no reply, so will assume this issue has been resolved. Please let us know if otherwise.

    So sorry to hear about this! There may have been a problem with the Mollom anti-spam service. We unfortunately have to use this due to the large number of spammers that visit our site.

    Feel free to use the contact form on our site, or e-mail website@hastac.org and we can manually create an account for you.

  13. Post-login redirect to origin instead of profile

    After logging in, the user should be directed to the page she started on rather than her profile page.

    This might be done easily if a token can be used ti pull the URL when clickingon the login button, eg: ".../login?destination=[token]..."

  15. Keep members from being involuntarily logged off

    Members are getting logged out unexpectedly when visiting certain pages, or after not using the site for only a brief period of time.

    If this happened to you, please add a comment with as much detail as possible. For example, what page causes you to get logged out? If it's a time issue, how long were you away from the window with hastac.org in it, and what else where you doing?

    Please also let us know your operating system and browser version. Thanks!

  16. Improve curation of features & highlights

    Would like to be able to manually curate the Featured and Highlighted content more easily. Currently the site sorts by posted date, which does not always reflect our priorities.

    Suggest this be implemented using the Nodequeue module.

  17. Make preview reflect that actual column width of live posts.

    Currently, blog preview displays something COMPLETELY different from what appears when the post goes live. This is because the preview function assumes that the post will use the entire content width, but in reality posts only get a small portion of the content column.

  18. Make the immediate details of the site readily available to users

    Took me a few minutes to figure out exactly what the purpose of the site was.

    We’re always working to better explain HASTAC, which is an inherently complex organization. The web site seeks to balance the needs of our members with the interests of new visitors.

    We’re open to any suggestions about how to do this more effectively. We are currently considering a splash page to greet new visitors, for example.

    Sorry, there were some issues with the A/V set-up at the Hirshhorn. When possible in the future we will use the Duke Ustream channel as it is ad-free. Thanks for the feedback.
