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.

  1. Make the 3 actions more graphically obvious!

    Right now the 'Take Action' button is way too small, it takes up <5% of the screen area and is overshadowed by the rotating graphics etc - but it's the most important part of the page!

    I'd suggest eliminating the 'click to drop down' behavior and make four large static buttons (perhaps each with a graphic) for 'complain, comment, discuss, help'. These buttons should be the primary focus of the 'above the fold' page, taking up the majority of the real estate. Perhaps a horizontal tiling of the four large buttons, with the scrolling graphic features below and the newsroom…

  3. Broadcast tv reception advice needs to be added or more prominient, I couldn't find it.

    I followed what I thought might get me to some useful consumer info on BCast TV reception. The coverage maps, antenna advice and help, OTARD rules, prominently displayed.

  4. The site is not accessible to the blind.

    The site is apparently using new code. It is nearly impossible to use. I am a Radio broadcast engineer an I rely on the site. I am also legally blind. In it's new form, I will not be able to get around it. It makes no sense to a person listening to it with a screen reader. It is repeating "type in text" for every letter I am typing right now, due to what? It does not happen on any other site. There are no HTML Headings now on the old page, where did they go? Menus on the new…

  10. We need a "do not email" list law similar to the "do not call" list.

    Email spam is a huge time waster and in some cases is even worse than having unsolicited phone calls.

  12. Publish the number of complaints received by sending phone number, business name, and other criteria. This would ID worst offenders.

    Publish the number of junk fax complaints the FCC receives. Sort by sending phone number, business name, and other criteria. This would call attention to the worst junk fax offenders. Phone companies could use the list to investigate and shut down offenders.

  13. "Official Documents" Suggestions

    It appears that "Official Documents" is intended to replace edocs. If so it should include a few additional features beyond what it has in the beta:
    (1) It requires docket search and date range search
    (2) The various filters on the right could prove very useful. One recommendation: everywhere throughout the site where there is a list of filters, check all/uncheck all buttons should be included
    (3) One of the nice things about edocs is the "Full Report" feature, which gives you useful information like the FCC Record citation, or a contact person at the FCC, where appropriate. Similar information…

    Thanks ‘Function Over Form’ for the very useful feedback on how we can improve the Official Documents section of the site.

    The spirit behind the Beta release was exactly this— to give super-users of FCC.gov like yourself the opportunity to provide valuable input on how to improve the redesign.

    We’re looking into all three of your suggestions now. Many thanks.

  14. A rule search engine would be great. Just rules and not the reference to a rule.

    A rule search engine would be very useful. Just rules specific, not all the extraneous references that come up every time you search a rule number. I just want an easy way to see a rule.

  15. Make it easier to access information pertaining to Amateur Radio

    I cannot seem to find any information about amateur radio licenses, new licenses, or regulatory information. I tried to search using the search bar on the homepage, but, it showed various documents, no results pointing to a generalized amateur radio "portal". Please make it easier to find this information from the homepage.

  16. Privacy concern from call sign lookups

    Protect radio operators from preditory criminals due to too much personal data being viewable on the ULS.

    Imagine some criminal type using a scanner to collect call signs then looking those up in the ULS going to their home and robbing them or worse.
    Addresses and phone numbers should only be accessable by FCC personnel investigating an interference complaint or such.

  18. email confirmation/submission page to sender

    I forgot to print the submission page with the confirmation number.

    There is no way of retrieving it electronically.

    Sending the sender an email confirmation will solve this issue.

  19. Nice clean look, but could be hard for those who don't use search

    The search needs to be very good since this site communicates so much information on a regular basis. I like it, but i know from usability tests that if your demographics are mostly people over 50, you'll need to make the search field very large and prominent or they wont use it.
