You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Saving drafts

    It'd be nice to be able to save a draft post before publishing it.

    • Allow attchment of documents & external links to posts

      Right now the site has a content type called "Documents and links" for posting files and URLs, but it might be easier for users if this ability was just added to other content types (ie: blog posts, events, opportunities, news, etc.)

        This feature has been added with the deployment of our new site. Files of almost any kind can be attached using the Documents & Attachments widget in most content types.

      • Add Storypal module for Storify stories.

        Storify is a convenient platform for sharing content from diverse sources. There's a module for Drupal (http://drupal.storify.com/) that creates a field for importing Storify stories. This would allow us to share the content on the HASTAC site for comment, rather than only being able to post a link to the original story.

        (The embed code for Storify doesn't work because users are not able to post scripts. I tried pasting the no-script HTML, but the result was pretty ugly.)

          We love Storify and are happy to help HASTAC members use it more on the site.

          I’ve made a change so that all users with any additional “roles” (including staff, HASTAC Scholars, and Competition winners) can now access the Full HTML input type, which permits scripts. This allows users to disable the rich-text editor and paste in the embed code for Storify and other widgets.

          Please let me know if this does not adequately meet the need for the module, and I will reopen the suggestion.

          • An advanced search page that filters all content by all possible criteria

            Would like a way to do complex searches that span a variety of criteria. For example: all groups or users with a specific topic, or all wiki pages edited since a certain date.

            The advanced search would expose nearly all the filter available and let users do it their way.

                • 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!

                  • 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.

                          I’m happy to report this is done! It is only visible to users when signed in. It gets data from Google Analytics so is much more accurate than before, and has negligible load on our server.

                          You can see the view count with the meta data on the left side of each post.

                        • 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]..."

                                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.

                                I tried following this link on my phone, and the result had the right page title but only showed the tapocs/tags menu (twice) and no content beyond the author's name.

                                • 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…

                                      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.

                                    • Points page

                                      The points page for individual users is confusing. Will there be descriptions of what they're for? Also, why are there negative points being added? Needs documentation and clearer interface.

                                      • Toggle Items on Dashboard

                                        The "toggle items" button on the dashboard puts the checkboxes over existing text, making it very hard to read. Also, looks sloppy.
