Suggestion Box

by Nitsuj (Hermit)
on Nov 05, 2000 at 06:15 UTC ( #40034=monkdiscuss: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

When I read vroom's post about the site survey, it gave the the idea for a site suggestion box. More than the current discussion areas, it could be an area where people could submit an idea and it could be voted upon. While I realize that someone could submit an idea here, and the number of votes that it recieved would give you a vague idea of whether or not it was liked, you could have a polling area, where people submit ideas, and vote it up or down, or perhaps have a series of options that one could select from. This way, you get a real breakdown of who is for or against an idea, or what the real thoughts on that idea are, rather than just an integer with little real meaning attached to it.

SAMPLE
User Submitted Site Feature Poll
Topic: Should we add a Monk of the Month Calendar?
()Yes
()No
()You guys are a bunch of pervs
()What if it were coed?
()Well, I suppose that it would be okay then

And then you could get a breakdown like in the polling area, and read comments under it and such.

    Good idea. I just hope that it doesn't get abused (ie "Who thinks redmist should shutup?") or overused. I think a good type of poll would be a simple bar or pie graph.

    As for the Monk Calendar, I think we should have it be all glam rock or hair rock...no exceptions. It would be fun to see jcwren in a big frumple of hairsprayed hair with a guitar.

      Pie graphs are loathsome and should only be permitted for the pseudo-reporting of results of obfuscated polls.

      I wonder if election season is getting to me... (up here in Ontario we are coping with province-wide municipal and Federal elections at the same time - the next person that asks my opinion is dead meat!)

    If we do wind up with a suggestion box it should be at the bottom of the site FAQ =) Or we are going to wind up with 100:
    Topic: Do we want a Preview before Submitting?
    ()Yes
    ()No
    ()What?

    --
    $you = new YOU;
    honk() if $you->love(perl)
