TechRepublic's Frayed Edges

By Jay Garmon Contributor ·
Despite what some of our more critical members may think, TechRepublic is well aware that certain aspects of our Web site don't exactly conform to the highest ideals of the optimal user experience (to say the least). Well, we're out to change that.

Here's the deal: We need you to take your best shot at TechRepublic.

I'm looking for a laundry list of every broken feature, every counter-intuitive design, every single institutional annoyance that has driven you crazy since you've been a member at TechRepublic. Problems unsubscribing? Difficulty finding the FAQ? Trouble reading small fonts? Let me know. Once we've documented all of TR's frayed edges, I'm making it my personal mission to get these problems repaired, or removed and improved in future TR redesigns.

So, ladies and gentlemen, start your criticisms!

The first rule of TRI is: you do not talk about TRI.

P.S ... 3. Could you please set up some way so that the submit button acknowledges if it is clicked twice when posting to a discussion??

Instead of

"P.S ... 3. Could you please set up some way so that the submit button acknowledges if it is clicked twice when posting to a discussion??"

what if they make the submit button work the first time, then vanish?

Good Idea

by stargazerr In reply to better yet

Anything to stop those double posts ....

People edit their second post and that ends up starting a new discussion alltogether.
