CLOSED: A New FCC.gov - Feedback


This forum is now closed. There will be future opportunities to comment on the FCC.gov website.*

We will be rolling out updates to the new FCC.gov on a regular basis. Share your thoughts and ideas on what to add to the next release, or ways we can improve the user experience or functionality on FCC.gov.

How can we improve the new FCC.gov?

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".
(thinking…)

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. Subject/Issue scroller

    I'd like to see a sort of searchable menu on the left or right of the page. Major and current issues or operations for the FCC and then you can instantly see the list, search it and then comment or read about it. Having the main center of the page with a few pics and headers is nice and attractive but not fully functional.

      • Mobile Safari floating search + title disappear

        In Mobile Safari, the floating search and title div don't use the fixed position of the viewport, but slide under the top edge. Then, scrolling back to the top of the page shows the wrong graphic position.

        • Remove transitional doctype and move to html5. Build for the future, not the past.

          The doctype for the site is "transitional". Change this to match today's standard for the new web site. Set the doctype to <!DOCTYPE html>, then design and fix issues.

          • Harmless words are blocked

            A few harmless words are blocked in the comments. For example, I tried saying "this is more difficult then" in a comment (using the word h--rder instead of difficult) but this word was blocked!

            • Exploring spectrum back button broken

              When I visit the Spectrum Dashboard on Google Chrome and then select Browse Spectrum Bands my websites back button stops working properly.

              In particular, if, from that page, I select "Radio" and then press "Search", and the try to use my back button, it immediately redirects me to the search results page.

              • Changing the font size breaks rendering in firefox 4

                Changing the font size to large creates a very odd looking broken fcc logo in current Firefox 4.

                • Fix Z-index on YouTube videos. Right now if you scroll down on a video page it overlaps the toolbar.

                  Go to a page with a YouTube video like http://beta.fcc.gov/blog/broadband-jobs-and-innovation . If you scroll down the video will overlap the toolbar/header at least on Google Chrome.

                  • Always allow 9 digit ZIP codes. 5 digits + 4

                    The contact page only allows 5 digit ZIP codes. The Get Email Updates page allows even 10. Always accept either 5 digits, 9 digits, or 5 digits then a dash then the 4 digits.

                    • Fix the front page slideshow to fit neatly on the grid on the sides.

                      It really makes me think it didn't render right in my browser and makes it look broken. Eliminate the translucent black border around the front page slideshow.

                      • Invalid email addresses in the Get Email Updates section of the footer redirects to a blank page

                        It should have client side JavaScript validation which warns the user about invalid email addresses or zip codes. There should also be server side validation so if the page is submitted there is an error page.

                          A thousand other ways things "could" be done right. This is one of them. Nice work

                            • Spectrum Dashboard should show band information from service rules not just allocations

                              At present the Spectrum Dashboard appears based solely on the allocation table. In some cases there are no service rules for parts of bands for a given service so the data indicated is misleading. For example, a search on 854-894 MHz indicates that Part 90 and cellular overlap. Business/Industrial Land Transportation Service is shown as being in 854 - 894 MHz for example. In reality, the services rules in Part 22 and Part 90 make it clear that they don't. Part 90 ends at 869 MHz.

                              This is a general problem since the allocations are often broader than the service…
