Voting allowed on fixed submissions

Submitted by Cloud02 on June 14, 2008 to Website suggestion

Submissions that have been flagged with "fixed" can still be voted on, which is unnecessary since the people have been heard.

Remove the voting ability on submission that have been fixed.
Do not change "rejected", since the people can still show their unhappiness with the decision.

Add a "Sort by Votes" option on the (website) sidebar

Submitted by wellslogan on August 28, 2008 to Usability, Website suggestion

Sometimes when I visit this site, I like to check the most popular submissions by number of votes. Something like -100+, -99 to 0, 0 to 50, etc. However, this is difficult when I have to go through dozens of pages under the "Popular Submissions" (more...)

Simply add this to the sidebar.

How many "real" quirks?

Submitted by tino on June 13, 2008 to Website suggestion

It would be nice to be able to see how many posts are rated positive (>0) without the posts that are labeled as "duplicates" or "unrelated" and aren't website suggestions to know how many "real" Vista problems are (more...)

I know nothing about PHP! ;) Maybe just a nice number at the footer?

Public Vote for Severity or Impact

Submitted by icecone on December 5, 2008 to Website suggestion

Right now we can only vote for or against a submission, and that's all
However the no. of promotes - demotes does not tell how serious the problem is, it just shows how many people have read it or whether people have read it properly or not.

If we vote for it, we should have a severity level to choose from, 1,2,3,4 or 5.
and a way to sort submissions according to their level or severity

Do not require additional login entry for Aqua and Aero Taskforce

Submitted by Grey_Podder on October 6, 2008 to Annoyance, Usability, Website suggestion

For those of us who submit quirks for both Mac OS X and Vista, we must log in for both the Aqua and Aero Taskforce.

I would submit this also to the Aqua Taskforce, but we haven't yet got the "Website suggestion" category. (more...)

Allow us to log in to one Taskforce website and remember our login information when we navigate to the other.

Windows UX Taskforce Must Be Gaming-Proof

Submitted by thenonhacker on June 15, 2008 to Annoyance, Website suggestion

Prevent "Vote Pollution" and bias. Check this out: http://www.aerotaskforce.com/view/675
It's a 100% valid suggestion (more...)

I have no draft solution at hand, but I know it can be solved by a kind of Credibility System. This will ensure the integrity of votes. It does not have to be complex. And we can wait. But it must be in the plan, because we do not want "Polluted (more...)

Popularity based on the percentage of promotes

Submitted by icecone on June 12, 2008 to Website suggestion

A suggestion with 200 promotes and 50 demotes does not actually mean it's popular, and one with 30 promotes and no demotes should be more popular, but probability its just less read.

Add a way to sort the submissions based on the percentage of promotes.
Of course, in order to avoid having those with 1 votes being counted as 100%, filter out those with less than 10 (or 20) votes when sorted this way.
