Some of you may remember the survey I posted here on TempleStudy.com back in May. It was a huge success. Many of you responded to my request for feedback, even those of you who don’t normally comment. Some of you gave me great compliments, for which I am very thankful, and many also gave suggestions of improvements to the blog and topics that you’d would like to see addressed here, including many “other” requests. I have taken those suggestions to heart and have already written on several of the topics that you submitted. Thank you for your participation!
The feedback went so well that I would like to make it a more permanent feature of the site. I have integrated a service called skribit that will allow just that. This new service will facilitate interaction with all of you in multiple ways, including the following:
- Submit Suggestions – You may submit any topic that you’d like to see addressed on TempleStudy.com – i.e., themes you’d like me to write about, ideas that you have, questions you may have, suggestions for improvement to the site, etc. I have already added 15 suggestions that were given in the prior feedback (some of which I’ve already blogged about somewhat).
- Vote – Once suggestions are added, you can all vote on them. If you see a suggestion that you’d also like to see written about or changed on the site, then just click the little green arrow next to that item to add your vote. Those items that receive the most votes will be higher on my list to write about or do on TempleStudy.com.
All of the above can be done anonymously. You don’t need an account or a login to submit suggestions or vote on them – anyone can add suggestions or vote. If you sign up for an account with skribit, you can also do the following:
- Discuss – Each suggestion allows a discussion for that item. If you’d like to add your comments to a suggestion, click on the suggestion or on the “discuss” link next to it, and then add your comments in the box provided.
- Notification – If you submit a suggestion or question while you are logged in, then you will be notified by email when I write a post about it, or do whatever thing the suggestion is about. This will help you easily stay on top of whatever you submit, and be made aware if I ever address it.
To access the suggestions feature, go to this link, or just click on “Suggestions” on the top navigation bar. I only ask that you skim the already listed suggestions first before adding a suggestion, in case yours has already been added by someone else.
Let me know if you like this new feature or not in the comments below.
