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".

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.

    The AM and FM station quires have not been migrated to the new site. For now, you can find them by searching either “am query” or “fm query” in the search field at the top of every page, and it should be the first result. Alternatively, you can bookmark the query directly if you use the page frequently.

  2. I approve of the new design, but it's hard to navigate.

    It's difficult to find all the departments without doing a search, the old site had all the information, not backgrounded by an interface. I think the new site is easier on the eyes and makes the FCC look more modern, but still needs to deliver the information properly.

  5. Please stop makeing the licnece tools hard to find.

    I use the site about once a week to look up license information, patterns and other items for our AM/FM cluster. and the new site has made all the search tools ****** to locate and ****** in the site. A direct link on the home page would helpful. The old site design and tools worked well, the new site seems geared to the consumer not the professional.

  7. I can not find Part 15, or any real regulations on your search or your site?

    All I want is some simple information about FCC regulations (Part 15 in particular). However, I can not find any real regulations on your site. A search only results in articles referring to the regulations. This should be one of the core components of the site, give people access to the regulations.

  10. Render news releases in HTML so I don't have to download a file every time I want to read something

    All other federal agency websites have news pages with press releases and other announcements viewable right there in HTML. Being able to download an "official" PDF is indeed useful, but that should be an option ancillary to HTML content being displayed.

  11. Provide thumbnails of FCC logo on home page for sharing on Facebook, etc.

    When sharing http://www.fcc.gov/ as a link on Facebook, the options to select thumbnails (images to associate w/ link) do not include the FCC logo.

    sort it out so that the new logo is recognized as an image/thumbnail.

  13. Go back to drawing board.

    Scrap your overhaul. Go back to previous design and tinker, and keep things simple and easy to find. First off, huge changes are disruptive in themselves, requiring us to relearn everything. Second, just from my minimal experiences so far, your new stuff is not user-friendly. Just figuring out how to give this feedback has been laborious. I'll spare the details, too aggravating. But you need to make things ***** proof for all us idiots out here. The reason the TV and other devices catch on in the mass market is because they are user friendly. So far, from I've seen,…

    Create a public forum for current events that shape the tel com industry, such as ATT merger with T-mobile, where the general public can provide their views for them.

  18. Receiving Complaints

    It would be helpful if the Complaint link under the Enforcement Bureau link allowed consumers or licensees to enter information about a violation or a problem.

  19. Comments & Privacy

    It would be nice to have a separate area to post questions or comments that aren't put up for vote as "ideas."
    From where did this site pick up my image?

  20. Create obvious hyperlink for making comments on AT&T's purchase of T-Mobile's USA operation.

    Create obvious hyperlink for making comments on AT&T's purchase of T-Mobile's USA operation. I want to voice my opposition to AT&T's purchase of T-Mobile's USA operation. Many other's also want to comment as well, but I do not see how I can voice my comments.
