I think there's benefit in a global RSS feed of top articles, as well as a feed of new articles per section. I, for instance, have a keyboard with its own LCD screen that cycles through my favourite feeds, and if one catches my interest when I'm working, I press a button and the article opens in a browser on my laptop. I'd love to include the Science & Technology section of The Conversation among these happy distractions.2 votes
I really like your ezine/news.
However, many of your covering comments throw conniptions at single/double apostrophes, & insert trash symbols instead.
The result is often mostly unreadable.
Is this another case of WORDPRESS dumbs ??
I'd send you a screen capture example, but your editor here won't allow insertion of jpegs !
Here's what it inserts instead: Screen shot 2012-04-14 at 9.53.18 AM.jpg
Another fix needed?

Reading the body of the articles is quite difficult with the current font. The titles are very legible, and the font on this comments page is fine as well, but for some reason the main text and comments in the articles is difficult to read. I am using IE 8, and I haven't tried to use this website at home yet (our work computer are quite dated!), so maybe it's only at work at this is an issue?2 votes
Thanks for letting us know. We’re looking into this at the moment, it sounds like there might be a bug in Internet Explorer.
After the article by John Wanna should we take you seriously - or is his article merely an illustration of how far University Academics are removed from reality? What is missing from your site is a clear statement of your funding sources. Perhaps you should make this obvious - so that readers can better assess your credibility.1 vote

when the daily emails contain words like "porn" or "sex" they get stuck in the email filter; could the team use * to get around this issue?
When the article is about "sex" or "porn" or similar topics, could an * be used in place of the vowels so that it will get past the email filter. I find that even though there are other articles that I would like to read, the email gets stuck in the email filter1 vote
Make an 'anywhere' app, see 'Guardian go anywhere' app. Downloads recent stories overnight, ready for access even without internet connectiv
I have found this feature of the Guardian app extremely useful as I don't have internet connectivity on my commute (in subway mostly, as I am an aussie living in New York). I love reading 'The Conversation', but can currently only do so when online. Please help!1 vote
I have just ditched Crikey after ? Years. Your prose lines are too short, suggest twice as long, with more lines/para, compress and compel,
I have typed it in suggest line ...
Your page appears sparse, lines too short, more lines/para will be better for yur presentation. Ask others, surely I am not the only one to think your pages look peculiar and to me unfriendly ?1 vote
return to your previous dashboard design where authors could see how many people read their article in the last 24 hours
That design allowed authors to discover (via trial and error) how people can to read their work. For example, one day I could post something on facebook and the next on twitter. What generates the most views? I thought that was one of the best features of the dashboard and I think it is a real shame it's gone.1 vote

Can I change from being an 'author' to 'commenter' without changing other aspects of my profile?4 votes
Simple really: add a clearly visible time/datstamp to the article leads/headers on the main page listings, either as small text near author, category, etc, or displayed on mouse rollover.
When I try view 'edit profile' I can only channge my name. Is there another button?7 votes
Thanks, we’ll fix this up.
I've spotted a syntax error in a post I've made. I need an >Edit facility.
Since we've been required to register and be identified, we should have the power to edit/delete our own posts [as well as to make changes to EVERY piece of personal information we provided on registration].3 votes

On the weekends you already send out a weekly digest. You should give users the option to subscribe to just that email rather than the daily email.1 vote
Don't just offer facebook and twitter - sure they are the most used but partly because mainstream media doesn't offer the alternatives such as tumblr etc - if there was more options this would increase exposure and readership!1 vote
It has been 2-1/2 weeks since the last update. I've been following his updates on the old UNSW blogs for many years. Can you at least put up an interim statement that he's out of communication, or ???1 vote
