Loss of attribution

When something is moved to the Off-Topic area, the poster and commenter names get lost. The Poster name gets changed to "openveterans", and all commenter names written for that post gets changed to "Site Administrator". I don't think that you intended to do that and it certainly would make it confusing to a reader of that area who would think that the Site Administrator actually provided some of those comments.

Editing Tags

It would be nice if once an idea has been posted that the person who made the idea could edit the Tags in the future ~

Incorrect summary amounts for one category

When looking at the left sidebar of idea input categories, the last category (5. Help Us Improve This Dialog Site) will sometimes have an incorrect amount of ideas indicated for that category (always seems to be short ideas for that category - how short varies - doesn't matter if you refresh the page). All the other categories will have the correct amount of ideas shown in the sidebar, it is just the last category that ...more »

Missing/conflicting information in certain site areas

If you click on a poster's handle (name) that brings you to a page which indicates it is a summary of all the poster's ideas and comments provided on this site ("Poster Summary Page"). HOWEVER, for certain posters, the "Poster Summary Page" will not show ALL the ideas that the summary has indicated they posted. The comments posted by the poster appear to always be correct and included on the "Poster Summary Page", it ...more »

Allow better review within certain parts of site

If you click on a poster's handle (name) it will show you all posts and comments of that particular poster ("Poster Summary Page"). For those items where they initiated a post, it allows you on the "Poster Summary Page" to go directly to that post and thereby you can review all comments for that post. HOWEVER, while on the "Poster Summary Page" and reviewing the comments that poster has supplied, there is no current ...more »

Allow cancelling a vote

There is currently no way to cancel my vote that I can find. In cases where I may too hastily have voted, OR the subsequent comments take a turn on the idea that I do not agree with and would not have voted in the way I did if those comments had been originally present, I would like the ability to cancel the vote I gave.

Separation of Ideas - Medical Care issues and Employee issues

Having read thru the list of suggestions, it has become clear that there are suggestions coming from two different camps. 1. You have the Vet who is frustrated because it takes forever to access his medical records and 2. You have the VA employee who is trying to do his job but runs into obstacles. It would be quite easy to modify this forum by simply asking after the website is opened if you are an employee ...more »

"Sign Up & Share" button

To Increase the possibility of receiving input and new ideas, I recommend that you create three buttons instead of two on the initial log-in page. In this posting's "Subject Line" and on the website, you indicate two functions for one button: "Sign Up" and "Share Ideas." Why not just create a third button so that the opening page has these three possibilities: "Sign Up" "Share New Ideas" "Discuss and Vote on Ideas" ...more »

Button Labeling

Having a button labeled 'Sign Up and Share Ideas' when I am logged in makes me think that your system is not recognizing that I am signed in. I have ignored that button for the last couple of hours or so while trying to find how to submit an idea. Finally I clicked it just to see where it took me. Once I sign in, that button should change to just 'Share Ideas' or 'Submit Ideas'. It is not intuitive at all. Sam Allgood ...more »
