  1. Oops.. Something Went Wrong

    Today I am experiencing some problem such as "Oops something went wrong." I am not sure if it comes from mine or comes from your service. Some have speculated that it could be a technical problem and some others as a result of temporary restriction ban. However, it doesn't seem like am banned but it does seem like am restricted perhaps constant questions which may similarly look repeated. But if you check on my profile answers they are quite different though. I am sure I did not break any rules. So please if am restricted, I would like to know…

  5. Automatically award top answer after some period of time

    Many times a person gets a number of good answers, then never awards an answer, leaving that question 'open'.

    I suggest after a week/month/whatever, AND there are answers given, then the highest-rated answer be automatically awarded and the question closed.

  8. Please can you slacken your censorship of words just a little

    Some words on here that are even remotely lewd get censored to just asterisks and it’s getting annoying seeing this in posted ideas. I understand blocking some of the really vulgar and even racist language, but some words that are just descriptive of the content and are not offensive in themselves get censored too. Nobody here is going to be THAT offended, if they are then they should just get a backbone. It’s hard to read ideas and take them seriously with all these asterisks. Only censor what is explicitly offensive and people actually report.

  9. Please fix the glitch where our answers sometimes don't show up for the public.

    I absolutely hate having to sign out of my account just to see if my answer is actually showing up for the public. Sometimes our answers are invisible unless we edit them in some way to make them visible.

  10. If you block somebody then it prohibits you from commenting on any of their questions or answers also.

    And if you block somebody they're questions and answers should become invisible to you you won't be able to see their questions or their answers or comment on their questions and answers if you block them. That goes for anybody fair is fair.

  18. Allow us to change the phone suggestions from mobile, work, home etc to other options

    Allow us to change the phone "type" suggestions from mobile, work, home etc to other options such as Member Services, main lobby, guard station etc. Many times companies have many numbers and suggestions like WORK do not help us to know what number to call.

  19. Correct new User Interface grammar

    The new user interface introduced in September 2019 invites users to submit answers if none have been received yet by saying "There's no answers yet". That's poor English grammar.

    Since "answers" is plural, it should say "There're no answers yet" or "There are no answers yet".
