      • Stop Credit Card Services calls

        One of the most enduring illegal operations is the Credit Card Services Company. There seems to be no interest by the Government in stopping these people from calling my business up to 5 times each day, every day! You ask what the FCC can do for citizens and corporations; I would say, "Just enforce your laws"! To date, you are another worthless government agency who must also be in on the pay-to-play business of our Congress!

        • Fix the front page slideshow to fit neatly on the grid on the sides.

          It really makes me think it didn't render right in my browser and makes it look broken. Eliminate the translucent black border around the front page slideshow.

                • Exploring spectrum back button broken

                  When I visit the Spectrum Dashboard on Google Chrome and then select Browse Spectrum Bands my websites back button stops working properly.

                  In particular, if, from that page, I select "Radio" and then press "Search", and the try to use my back button, it immediately redirects me to the search results page.

                  • make the web site more consumer oriented and provide a downloadable complaint form .

                    a senior citizen who is quite discouraged in using computers prefer to speak and contact with a human American located in the US.

                    • Get the "search" feature working.

                      I'm looking for a two year old Commission report, but the old link to the document doesn't work and the new site's "search" function yields zero helpful results. As of a couple of days ago, I was able to find it by choosing to use the previous fcc.gov and searching from there. However, now even that seems to be turned off.

                      • Consider the [Crowd] Source

                        I see where this beta site is trying to go, but I think it goes too far. I applaud the attempt, but graphics should be used judiciously to prevent "information overload" by breaking up text with aesthetically pleasing art. In this case, the graphics dominate the front page, leaving very little visual space to convey meaningful content. Because this is a government website upon which people rely to obtain information, we can strike a better balance. The graphics can be smaller and achieve the same effects. The "feature" videos can be placed in a "meet the FCC" space, as Function…

                        • Make feedback possible directly to the FCC site instead of via Adobe pdf format.

                          Allow for direct feedback to the FCC site instead of via Adobe pdf format. If one is using a local public library computer (as I am right now), I cannot send the feedback via my email since the FCC complaint form only uses an Adobe form by which one must sign up and pay in order to use. This raises the question of privacy, etc. THIS format here which I am currently typing out is what should be available to the consumer.

                          • The changing logo on scroll is slightly distracting.

                            The animation and change tends to catch the eye on scroll, maybe it'd be better to always display the smaller logo?

                              • Stop censoring everything,

                                No more censoring,parents need to be parents and control their households and those who do not like what is on need to change the channel. Entertainment should not be governed. Control what your children watch do not put that burden on the people providing the media. For those who say we need to protect the children start in your own home and leave the rest of us alone.

                                • Don't require scripting

                                  A requirement for scripting creates endless browser compatibility issues, opens countless security holes, and creates conflicts with beneficial browser security features and plug-ins. It also paves the way for spying on users. For example, on this page, there are "Google analytics" scripts which spy on users' activities! It is highly inappropriate for any government Web site to enable spying on visitors by a private corporation.

                                        Great suggestion. As we enter the next phase of the redesign, revamping the “help” section of the site is at the top of the list.

                                        What kind of support would be most helpful to have live chat available for? Ex: transactional assistance, consumer support, etc.

                                        Many people do not watch television, but instead, get their information/entertainment via the Internet. If a disaster or other threat were to occur, many of us would have no advance warning. A desktop Alert App would get the word out to many more people, not just television viewers, and hopefully lives could be saved.
