  3. Template Form for Questions

    For any given topic, offer a form that guides people in how to frame their questions or suggestions. It would be helpful to give me a template for a 1-page policy memo, a couple of fields for a question, etc.

  5. Search autocomplete is completely useless / broken

    The search suggestions/autocomplete is totally broken (using Firefox 4). I type in "file a complaint" and the results are a garbled mess of text which reads something to the effect of "file a complaintfile a complaintsfile a complaintshtmfile a complaint1file a complaints1" (unfortunately I can't post a screenshot).

    Dev team should probably do a little bit of actual browser testing before launching a >$1M website... not entirely competent, honestly.

  7. Use the original, *classic* FCC logo

    The site should prominently display the agency's REAL logo -- the classic federal eagle sitting on telecom towers with phone wires & lightning bolts. The logo using the big F with the concentric C's appears on the bottom of electric appliances to denote compliance with interference standards, and should be limited to that purpose.

  8. Clearly places emphasis on Broadband Agenda at expense of traditional media

    The website design and contents available to date illustrate the emphasis that the Commission is placing on point to point personal communications which may come at the expense of point to multipoint "old fashioned" broadcast services. Beta website tends to bury key functions and tools that serve the very industries that the Commission regulates while placing fluffy generalizations clearly aimed at pandering to an uninformed public up front. If that were followed by educational information to elevate the public understanding it might be more acceptible. As it stands, the content implies that Broadband expansion offers service while old media simply…

  10. Need more contrast in blue on blue & Display Options text at top.

    Especially if it (medium blue bar) will be used for messaging in the future.

  11. Broadcast tv reception advice needs to be added or more prominient, I couldn't find it.

    I followed what I thought might get me to some useful consumer info on BCast TV reception. The coverage maps, antenna advice and help, OTARD rules, prominently displayed.

  12. Make each page as information-rich as the old FCC site. Keep it simple technology-wise.

    Make each page as information-rich as the old FCC site. Keep it simple technology-wise. Make it lighter, brighter.

  15. The changing logo on scroll is slightly distracting.

    The animation and change tends to catch the eye on scroll, maybe it'd be better to always display the smaller logo?

  17. Improving user interactions with top news displayer

    On the front page, there is a top news/story displayer that constantly switches between the various stories.
    Currently, there are two problems with this:
    First, the title of the story is not link when it should be. I think you will find that most users will think that the title is a link, as is often the case, when it is not.
    Second, the clickable space for switching between the different stories is too small. I can't find the research paper on this right now, but increasing the interaction space is nearly almost always helpful. It may also be useful…

  18. Generally like. RSS button missing in URL Bar.

    Works well when browser has JS/Plugins and Images turned off. A sign of best of breed dev. Major points here.

    Missing RSS button in URL Bar (I see link at the bottom, though). Would prefer a category-based site combined with a blog (instead of just a blog with some links on the side) BUT do love just how accessible you guys are - tons of contact, action and support links. Very nice.

    My first visit to fcc.gov and the old site with proprietary DOC files are a major turn-off so this update is already infinitely better. Thanks and thank you…

  19. Clarify social sharing features

    It's great that you're including the FCC's social media channels and social sharing features on this beta site. I would like to suggest either different icons or arrangement for the channels, however. Right now, they are rather dark and shaded when the user doesn't have their mouse hovered over the icons. To me, that makes the social sharing icons below them stand out more.
