Add "Abstain" to voting options instead of just up or down

Give users the ability to 'abstain' from voting on a particular idea but still show the idea as voted on.

 

With the vast number of ideas I try to not re-read them, but if there are some that I don't feel strongly about either way I won't vote. Then they still show the vote up or vote down buttons. If there was an option to abstain (think mark as read) that would help me manage Ideascale as a user.

Silently Complete Profile Updates That Do Not Include Password Changes

When changes are made to the user Profile and the Password fields are left blank, the following informational dialog is displayed: Passwords do not match. No password update made. [Continue] This message must be dismissed by the user. If neither Password nor Password (Confirm) have been specified, I would consider this to be working as designed. The status message is not necessary. If feedback is to be provided, ...more »

Provide new moderation option to approve customers but let world see my ideascale

We have what I would believe is a typical scenario whereby we want anyone to be able to view our ideascale instance, but want to be able to approve customers as they purchase our solution to be able to create, comment and vote. Currently, when setting "High", it allows you to approve individual users (great!) but unfortunately it means no-one else can just browse the ideas the customer community are engaged with (not ...more »

Custom Fields need to be editable and have separate CSS

I've been playing around with Custom Fields (for consideration in actual implementation) and have found them to be too limited at this point to be practical, especially since I can't control the way they look via CSS. Also, if I make a mistake (or the customer makes a mistake or typo) there is no way to correct it without blowing away (losing) the whole idea. So the moderator really needs to be able to have a way to ...more »

Poker Chip Style Voting

Many customers have asked for "Poker Chip" style voting whereby each user in a community is limited in the number of votes they can allocate to an idea. This is especially ideal for product development, whereby it can be difficult to ascertain from your audience which product/feature idea is most important to your user base. This is what we have in mind: -Add vote breakdown so the community can see if an idea is popular ...more »

Add browsing category for Ideas with recent activity

I would like to see an "Active" category added to the section with Top Rated, Recent, Review, etc.

 

The list would be sorted, descending, by the date of the most recent change made to the Idea (new Comments, modification description, Status, or Moderator Comments, etc.)
