Got an Idea for Us? Help Us Make the Site Better

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 45 comments

Technology and those that exist within the ecosystem evolve and multiply on a daily basis. Something that was cutting edge today, may be nothing more than an afterthought tomorrow.

One of the reasons you visit Tom's Hardware is to keep abreast with the latest technology news, trends, and of course, the low down on CPUs, GPUs, and overclocking goodness. Even though we're busy virtually around the clock working on the next article, or trying to improve our site, we've only got so many brains and so many hours in the day to come up with brilliant ideas.

That's why we think there's no one better to go to ideas than you, our readers!

"Wait!" you say? "Don't we already try to complain and contribute in the comments and the forums? Do you guys even listen?"

Truth be told, our forums are quite large, and often times, great threads get buried in the mountain of comments and messages. If we spent all our time trying to filter through the forums, we wouldn't be able to write great articles. So, we've come up with a new system for you to use to guarantee that your suggestion gets both visibility and support.

Our new suggestions voting system allows you to submit an article idea, site feature suggestion, or forum feedback, then submit a suggestion, vote and have others vote up your suggestion--try to get your idea voted up by promoting it in our forums. You can track new suggestions or hot suggestions and even leave comments. Once your suggestion reaches a certain number of votes, we will review it and attempt to see how best to implement your idea.

If you've ever wanted to make a statement on how to improve Tom's Hardware, there's no better system than this. Using the new Feedback voting system, you assure that your ideas gets heard by everyone reading the site as well as our team of editors and developers. Of course, if you see ideas submitted by other readers that you like, you can vote them up too.

Example Suggestion: "I want Tuan to write more Mac related articles please!"

Below are the links to the voting systems:

The Site & Forum Suggestion Feedback Voting System

The Article Suggestion Feedback Voting System

So, as technology changes, cast your vote and idea and try out our new voting system.

Many thanks to UserVoice for the vote-casting system.

    That's a good idea, only if you guys weed out the lol kitties

    (Example: "plz make article on new winxp theme thx!")

    No...

    It should be more like "We want an article about Window 7 performance benchmarks against Mac OSX"

    stuff like that or....

    "Hardrive Special: Sata 2/3 vs SAS vs SSD" Raid and non-raid.

    Capice?

    change the way people vote (thumbs up, thumbs down) - too many people get poor votes from FUD boys etc, or for simply quoting something from an article instantly gets negative votes like wtf

    tom's should add a video card chart that is updated after every test. that way when we go to buy new video cards we can easily compare.

    I think its the only thing in a computer case that they don't review on the site.

    Also, if you have suggestions for the forum (not about the software), PM a mod/admin and we'll look into it.

    ie49589Get rid of Jane McEntegarth. She made this site into a gossip magazine.


    Sorry, no 'Jane McEntegarth' works for Tom's Hardware but I can add her to the "do not hire" list if you'd like?

    I seem to recall reading a post from one of the editors/benchmarkers that they would not rate PSU's at the time because it required specialized equipment that they didn't have (sine wave generators or some jazz like that). While I think a psu roundup would be great (it would have saved me from buying an Ultra with documented inconsistent amp output on the rails) I think a picture of the day would be neat-o, and may actually get me to register for once :3

    How to make Tom's better: bring back the OLD Tom's Games with the weekly episodes of Second Take and all the reviews, previews, etc with all the old personnel that have since been discarded.

    Bookmark? Also, hasn't anyone noticed the "feedback" tab which scrolls down the right side of the forum? It goes to this as well.

    Yeah, and that sassy female Irish journalist probably did SAS training and would beat the crap out of anyone.

    The world needs more sassy female Irish tech journalists.
