Lock the thread once voting starts?

Status: Not Likely
by on ‎09-28-2010 04:40 PM

To many comments. Vote and we get it or don't. I think once a request is made, and voting starts the thread should be locked. I do not know if this is possible while still allowing votes???? Current method of Ideas board ends up just like another thread on another board. Many many comments, and off topic posts. Impossible to moderate, and an over whelming amount of work to maintain.


Perhaps our Lithium folks could tell us. I think this is what is required if the channel voting board is ever created. Administrators' and moderators' comments only based on status.

We will keep the discussion open on the main Idea Exchange. We've actually seen some good discussion, and there are often valuable follow-up ideas posted as comments.

How about fixing the "Rich Text"?

As you can see, the "Rich Text" is working. (for now)


Sadly, this is occuring only about a third of the time.


When we take the time to type out our ideas using sentences and paragraphs, we'd like to see it posted that way.


Most of the time when I click on "Rich Text" , the page that I'm on, simply reopens and still, the "Rich Text" doesn't work.


To get it to work this time, I had to start a new thread.


Thank you

Apologies for the intermittent "Rich Text" feature. We will look into this.

Dear Verizon,

  I was reading a recent article in a Popular Mechanics Magazine, concerning,

hardware manufacturing processes for flashdrives in Asia has some serious threats

being installed in their hardware at the plant when the item is made.

Numerous IT savvy people use flash drives to back-up email, important documents,

and even file cleaners to remove activity on their work systems so they can surf

without leaving a trail on the work PC.

  This article describes a process where encrypted spyware exist on the

new flashdrive, that may no be detected by many anti-virus/spyware defensive

systems at the work station.

 The way windows software will rapidly install a new flash drive without

allowing the defensive system to scan for danger. This occurs inside the

mainframes . Most firewalls look for instrsuions outside the server, not from

attacks inside there server, even if the purpose is to steal emails and

passwords, this may allow the installed hardware to export copies of your emails

to a third party.

  This has allows them access to important bid information of major corporations

that are selling or buying companies .

In a High bid world this allows the hacker to provide this information to

their employers giving them a unfair advantage in the world market.

Maybe in the near future all installed new hardware should be sandboxed by

the current antivirus on the mainframe before allowing windows to decompress

the software provided by the manufacturer of the flash drive (hacker software) this may allow the

antivirus to now see the spyware cookie inside the hardware install as it decompresses.

This information should be forwarded to the government and  antivirus companies and

possibly black list the company trying hack the world internet.

  Just a thought, be sure to scan that new usb drive, or flashcard, never install a new

flashdrive at work without secure wiping the  drive and checking for mallware and other nasties

don't assume its clean cause its new, there are numerous nations and hackers trying to

spy into organization and corporate structures.

Imagine how many new flash drives are shoved into mainframes without any worry about

infecting the entire system.

Suggestions for improving the forum look and functionality

Add a Community Favorites to the Category side bar. I did find my floated items when I opened the Forums link in your big picture found here, under the link.




Not as intuitive as if it were the first item listed Under Categories side bar. Where it would expand and show your floated boards.


"Community Favorites" or Just "Community" as shown under the Forums link in the picture above. If it would make the page code change easier.

That is a great idea, Prisaz! Let me look to see how/if we can do that from a development standpoint... Appreciate the feedback!

Secure The Forum Login Page

The Forum login page does not appear to be "secure". The address has HTTP vs HTTPS and I don't see a "lock". Exposes user ID and password to hackers.


My browser is Internet Explorer

We did take a look and confirm the flow. When data is submitted, it is sent https as is pointed out below.

Invest in the Caribbean

Status: Not Likely
by Rusty101 on ‎03-07-2011 04:45 PM

 It would be really create to have a Verizon network here in the Caribbean. My current internet provider is extremely unstable and does not provide the promised speed, while I am using it. If you can set up a network over here I would be extremely happy and I am sure that thousands of other Caribbean who are stuck using this extremely slow network would agree as well

Status: Not Likely
We used to do business in your realm, but exited the region a few years ago... don't see us coming back (but never say never). Sorry.

I can't correct my earilier post. 


If I could, I could save time and problems for all.

Add a Verizon Media Manager Board to the community. Since Flex View, and much of the Media features are being managed by the software, it seems only fitting to add a board for it. This would bring up more discussions, and perhaps promote its use. I know I have tried it, used it and ran into one issue or another. I believe there should be a place to highlight the product and support it. It is a PC software product and has postings buried here or there on the FiOS TV Technical Assistance board or elsewhere.

Why IMG 1.9? Why not On-screen Guide?

Status: Already Exists
by custom on ‎01-12-2012 08:34 AM

Especially with the recent changes, info for the on-screen guide should be prominent.  I'm technical, and I wouldn't look to "IMG 1.9" for help with the on-screen guide.


Further, right now, the link for the on-screen guide should be featured, not buried in the Residential Products and Services list.

Drop this "green" advertisement

Status: Acknowledged
by yakasha on ‎01-10-2013 10:39 AM



For your own well-being, pull this ad immediately.  I understand you're going for a "green" image.  But doing so by picturing 1 guy in a giant wearhouse, during the day (I see 2 well-lit skylights, one of which appears to be directly above the guy), with absolutely *every* light in the house on, just so he can stare at a single tiny windmill?  Even the desk-lamps behind him pointing at empty desks are turned on.  He is wearing a sweater... makes me think the A/C vent in the ceiling is probably spewing out cold air.  Mr. "I hate the earth" Scientist likes wasting power apparantly.

"Very good points- thanks for pointing them out to us! I'll make sure our Marketing team sees your thoughts on the ad."

If this subject line is only allowed 100 characters, don't let me type past that.

Every other message board and website that has a character limit will cut you off if you go past it.  As in, I should be physically unable to type character 101 in your subject.   You should be embarassed that I need to suggest this.

I know you are corporate conglomerate like the rest of the tv providers. More and more tv is going to on demand and on the internet. I'm sure most cordcutters wouldn't mind paying $20-30 more a month if those certain channels you do have were available web only. I'm not talking about your live TV streams but your on demand stuff. 


TV is changing and people are watching shows in a non traditional manor. 


Positives for you


  • 100% profitable 
  • Fewer service calls (most users doing this are tech savy)
  • Additional profits from allowing subscriptions to premium channels
  • No equipment in the customer's home 
  • Additional customers asking for the service (no one else is doing it)




  • none

Un-related advertising

Status: Acknowledged
by mosweet on ‎03-06-2013 02:19 PM

In paying my monthly bill, I was confronted with an announcemen that I had"won" a valuable prize. After some 100 mouse-clicks, I was led down a rabbit-hole of numerous ads and subscriptions, with successive reminders that just one more click and I'd get my reward. This feels a lot like bait and switch, although I'm sure that Verizon, a reputable and multi-billion $$ corporation would not intentionally waste their subscribers' time with such tactics. If these are necessary, please post an early notice that not all subscribers who are announced as "winners"  will actually win. Or, preferably, please review these ads with your customer Ombudsman.

Thank you for posting your idea. Your suggestion will be passed to the appropriate team.

It should be right on your home page as soon as you sign it.. I also hate how I had to get a bundle with a phone when I have no need for a house phone..  I signed up online and the person said I had to get all 3 when I didn't want to.. Why can't you just let people get what they want and not trick them into buying stuff they do not want ? Once I figure out when my contract is over IM goanna have to look into something else.

Status: Acknowledged
I definitely see how that could me helpful. I will send your request over to the MyVerizon Development team. Keep the ideas flowing.
