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:

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. 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,…

          • More Kyle Stoneman. That is all.

            Kyle Stoneman is only blurrily featured on the site. Our coalition feels he should have a more prominent role. Possibly performing a magic trick?

            Also, the site looks great.

              • Bring back chronological headlines list. It was an easy way to search using the find function.

                It was nice to be able to look at all of the headlines from each year as an easy way to filter out unneeded search results. Ex: I need to the open internet NOI. I know it came out in 2010 and I can then just go to 2010 and use a find function to find the name of the order.

                • Great look good features keep it rolling

                  The site looks great. I'm loving the extent you took drupal based sites too. I can't wait to see it leave beta with all it's features polished and fleshed out.

                    • Use a different heading font

                      The font, Trade Gothic W01 Bold Extended, looks squished and just doesn't jive with the rest of the design. It seems to work OK when used as a title in the slides (e.g., "Explore Spectrum Bands, Maps", "Next Generation 9-1-1"). But in other places, such as the menu, article headings, and sidebar headings, it looks very unappealing.

                          • FCC seal on new site has error!

                            The seal at the lower left corner was a wiring error that stubbornly persists and should be a major embarrassment to an "expert agency" in wireless technology.

                            The seal shown is the same as this: http://history.nasa.gov/presrep98/fccLogo.gif

                            Here is the previous longstanding version:
                            http://cut-the-cable.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/10/FCC-Logo.jpg

                            Note the "wiring" different with the horizontal wires which is nonsensical but clearly visible. I assume it comes from an artist making an error and no one reviewing it.

                            The FCC seal is derived from the FRC seal of the late 1920s:
                            http://thisdayintechhistory.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/02/Federal_radio_commission.gif

                            The FCC seal is basically the horizontal shortwave antenna from the FRC seal with…

                            • FCC Headlines -- Where's the News?

                              You're not putting key items like Wireless Competition Report links on your front page headlines, but do include some fluffy items there. To find the wireless report, relatively easily at least, I had to go to your old Website, where it was at the top of headlines. What gives? I'm afraid this editorial judgment just reinforces perception you're playing some sort of PR game with the new Website. You should play it straight.

                              • All forms in one place with sample forms & downloadable or printable instructions

                                Having a hard time finding the forms that I'm looking for on the new site. Needing a 214 form but that is only available under the International Bureau - I go there and I have to sign in and begin to fill it out before I see what it looks like and what is required. Very annoying - best served with all forms on one page with instructions and a blank sample form so you can pre-fill it out prior to online entry.

                                  • Include a forum where residents can share their stories of dealing with telcos.

                                    The frustration of dealing with telcos needs to be documented publicly -- and where possible, summaries of common themes encountered by the public need to be noted and acted upon.

                                    • Quick Fix for Regular Users

                                      A quck fix for regular users would be to add a new tab on the home page that would include, Daily Digest, ECFS and EDOCS. Anything else?

                                        • API's and developer's page

                                          The new web API's are very nice, and the page for developers is top notch.
