This thread is to be used as a place holder for people to log suggestions for improvements and new feature requests for the ITRC Forums.
In the past these requests have typically been logged in the monthly Performance threads meaning that they tend to get lost quite quickly.
Performance related issues should continue to be logged in the montly thread here:
Please note, I don't work for HP and have no control over whether any suggestions logged here will get implemented - hopefully they will, but don't blame me if they don't !

Anyways i think they should make their search and advance search better.
I searched even i question which i m sure that they were there but search could not find them.
So i was just wondering that before posting a question if someone wanna search here he cant do it precisely.

Until then you can always use google and restrict the search with:
site:itrc.hp.com search query ...

1. 250 points
2. 2 * 1.
3. 2 * 2.
4. 2.5 * 3. ??
5. 3 * 4. !!
6. 3.33 * 5. !!!!
and from there on, 2 * previous.
4. , 5. , and 6 definitely look UGLY!!
And 250 looks "just a number".
We (at least, most) techies in IT.
We are ingrained with binary.
Would not 256 be a much more appropriate starting point?
And then a new rank for each doubling?
That would lead to :
4096. New rank. Maybe Emperor?
Each doubling - one more star.
Of course, some transitopn mechanism has to be devised & implemented, but that can be done.
What is the general feeling on this?
Have one on me.

Also clear notification in the forum profile "list of all notification of the past" would be nice. To keep the HP db cleaner (and faster).
And may be outsource the forum to google.

I was also going to suggest "disable all notifications" but you've done it for me.
I guess an "Only notify if thread is less than X days old" might be useful. I'm not usually that interested in receiving notifications on 2-3 year old threads that someone's decided to drag up.

6. 3.33 * 5. !!!!
Pharaoh to Olympian is * 2.67 , of course. :-(
But that does not really change the idea.
Have one om me.

binary based hats, lol ...
Hope this helps!
There are only 10 types of people in the world -
those who understand binary, and those who don't.
No support by private messages. Please ask the forum!

I don't think I've ever seen any real comments from HP or heard that any of the suggestions have ever been implemented.

Another thing I'm missing is that the site should keep a cookie identifying the time the screen was last used (or used for the specified selection criteria). Then it should divide the messages in 2 groups : those that changed since the last usage and those that didn't. This way you can directly see what changed.
Now I have to do it manually. And the mail overhead is just too much so I disabled that.

All too often the Retain format(spacing) option doesn't cut it when typing in commands, or pasting the output from commands with lots of spaces etc.
Something like phpBB's [code] tags would be useful.

Copy posting will get your thread deleted.
I suppose cross posting wouldn't have the disjoint duplicates with no connections.
A poor man's cross posting would be to have the moderators move the thread from forum to forum until they are all covered. While only one forum would see the counts, it would be visible in all.

Another one, which I'm sure someone's mentioned before, is that when you change the View to show "Questions with no replies" it shouldn't show "question moved" threads.

This issue seems to have got a lot worse over the last 2 years.
I know it should be about learning and being able to help other members, but the points are a way of saying thankyou for people that have responded to your questions.
If a you dont think a reply was relevent then you can assign 0 points.
There are just too many people taking replies for granted.
I'm not the most technical person so i really value the replies i've got to my questions over the years, i just wish some other members felt the same way.

Good idea overall.
Suggestion: Give me a hat to shoot for.
Note: I am aware of the existance of this thread.
I am reading it. It is a bitter sweet momment for me. I will compose an appropriate response but do not expect it for several days.
Thanks for your heart felt congrats. On to 100,000 points.

E.g. when less than 90% of the answers they received didn't receive points and number of answers > 10.
