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. Make the current Beta version of the website, the default website.

    Basically make the older version of the website available via a different URL. Example: http://www.fcc.gov/classic Then make the site that's in beta testing the default website.

    • Contrast Colors

      Make the smaller text copy more visible by increasing the contrast of the text / background color.

      • Not too accessible

        The drop-down menu is not accessible by tabbing, and the navigation link color contrast it too low for visibility.

        • date your blog entries

          I agree with another commenter that blog posts needs dates at the top of each blog entry. You should be dating all entries, whether they're blog posts, press releases or meeting announcements

          • Daily Digest? Link directly from the home page.

            One of the absolutely most commonly used documents on the FCC website is the Daily Digest. There's no place for it.

                  • The menus overlap each other.

                    Move your mouse back and forth, and you can get 3-4 menus overlapping. Eliminate the animation from the menus. They don't keep up with my mouse. They should drop down instantly, and not overlap.

                    • dates on home page

                      On the new home page, there's a "top news" section in the middle. Can you put dates on every item? I don't want to have to click through to items to see what date they were issued.

                      • Sprite

                        You might want to use a sprite to avoid the delayed first load of the hover states of the "connect"

                          • Fix line spacing on rulemaking page

                            On http://beta.fcc.gov/rulemaking, under Rulemakings by Topic, it's hard to tell where the title of one rulemaking ends and the next one begins. Multi-line titles should be single-spaced, and there should be extra space between titles.
