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

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:

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!")


    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.

    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
