          • Be more consumer friendly

            The site is a bit confusing at times to navigate. Where do I go to file a complaint? Where do I go to check on the status of a complaint? What are the current cases FCC is working on and where do I find status reports that get updated regularly? I really am hoping so much that the new FCC becomes a tool to support the consumer and end the helplessness we experience in being subjected to mega companies like Time Warner and Comcast, so please support us on your website and make it work for us!

              • Search autocomplete is completely useless / broken

                The search suggestions/autocomplete is totally broken (using Firefox 4). I type in "file a complaint" and the results are a garbled mess of text which reads something to the effect of "file a complaintfile a complaintsfile a complaintshtmfile a complaint1file a complaints1" (unfortunately I can't post a screenshot).

                Dev team should probably do a little bit of actual browser testing before launching a >$1M website... not entirely competent, honestly.

                • Improving user interactions with top news displayer

                  On the front page, there is a top news/story displayer that constantly switches between the various stories.
                  Currently, there are two problems with this:
                  First, the title of the story is not link when it should be. I think you will find that most users will think that the title is a link, as is often the case, when it is not.
                  Second, the clickable space for switching between the different stories is too small. I can't find the research paper on this right now, but increasing the interaction space is nearly almost always helpful. It may also be useful…

                  • Mobile Safari floating search + title disappear

                    In Mobile Safari, the floating search and title div don't use the fixed position of the viewport, but slide under the top edge. Then, scrolling back to the top of the page shows the wrong graphic position.

                      • A few tweaks

                        I think you need to rethink making these radical changes that are so disruptive to the user, and focus on modifications that truly improve things, rather than changes that actually make things more onerous. For example, it used to be that when we clicked on a link to an item such as a press release or a commissioner statement, we were taken to the item. Now when we click on links to items, we're treated to a bunch of FCC boilerplate and forced to then hit the "expand" button. Why? May not seem like a big deal, but multiply this…

                          • Clearly places emphasis on Broadband Agenda at expense of traditional media

                            The website design and contents available to date illustrate the emphasis that the Commission is placing on point to point personal communications which may come at the expense of point to multipoint "old fashioned" broadcast services. Beta website tends to bury key functions and tools that serve the very industries that the Commission regulates while placing fluffy generalizations clearly aimed at pandering to an uninformed public up front. If that were followed by educational information to elevate the public understanding it might be more acceptible. As it stands, the content implies that Broadband expansion offers service while old media simply…

                                • Centralized login area

                                  During this transition, the login area is really fragmented. Let's take the time to fix it, and make FRS very easy to use. Login from the front page, and quick links based on the person's account so far. Perhaps a categorized area with actions a person may take with their account? Really make it easy to use the system.

                                    We hope to roll out exactly that in the near future. If you take a look at the my dot preview (http://my.fcc.gov/), once launched, it will provide you with the ability to sign on, see links to common tasks that you select, and even follow specific agency actions such as dockets or proceedings, all from the home page.

                                    A single, site-wide login across all the agency’s systems and portals is a little tricky, both legally and technically, but we’re trying our best to head in that direction.

                                    Changing the font size to large creates a very odd looking broken fcc logo in current Firefox 4.

                                    • , but we are charged for them.There are far too many paid programming channels.

                                      Give the consumer a choice of the channels they do not have to pay for.

                                        • Too Slow!

                                          Contrary to popular belief, not everyone has a high-speed internet connection. Beta site is too slow over dial-up! I don't care if the background is blue, red, or green... just don't make it a large graphic! We still need a text-oriented portal.
