  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  5. Looks Good Needs More Dynamic live applications

    Off to a great start. Site needs more automation and live real-time apps.
    Cut more red tape with online license applications, approved with a click of the mouse! No more download, pdf, word docx's and mail in forms. All real time, more user friendly where the common joe can understand and personal is the right direction.

  7. Navigation bar should go horizontal

    The vertical drop down menus occupy too much screen space, making them horizontal not only saves screen real-estate but keeps the overall new design more clean.

  8. RSS feed on this page is the only one to load into Outlook.

    All the RSS feeds I tried that were available on the the "new" FCC website failed to load into Microsoft Outlook.

  9. Schedule for NPRMs

    Provide a schedule for the completion of the pending NPRMs. I cannot find when to expect the final order for FCC 10-106 (WT-10-119). Would it be possible to either provide a feed or compile a list of e-mail address so that you could notify interested parties when an order is issued?

  10. I came here looking to see what broadcast TV is available in my zipcode 12401...

    I'd like to be able to key in my zipcode and find out what stations broadcast in that area... moving to internet based TV and broadcast TV to unhook from cable and bring the costs down...

  12. Add social functionality mapped to FCC operations

    Let's really open up what FCC is doing and involve the public.. and make it worthwhile, perhaps even fun! There's so much FCC can do with User Generated Content to engage citizens...

  13. 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…

  14. Enlarge the font size of links on the bottom half of the screen

    The tiny size of the fonts makes it seem like this information isn't important.

  15. Search | Take Action | Discuss is right focus.

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

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  20. 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.
