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.

  1. 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]..."

    • Newsletter footer should be more visible

      The lines of text at the bottom of the newsletter, especially the one that says "Click here to forward to a friend" should be lighter grey or white so that they are more readable.

      • Make content well wider

        Move the meta data to above the body and put embedded content into a floating DIV (allowing text to wrap) so that the body of the post can use that width.

        • Make it to possible to search for groups by keyword (in groups page)

          I was trying to find a specific group and I knew the title somewhat. I didn't know the tags or the categorization, though, so when I tried to search for the group within the group page, it was difficult. I ended up searching the entire site. I found the organizing/searchable categories under Groups to be kind of confusing. Thanks for all you do!

          • 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?

            • Can the text box for inputting tags be longer?

              The text field for inputting tags is fairly short - long tags (like center names, university names, conference names) get cut off, and it's hard to see what you are selecting.

              • 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!
