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.

Status: Not Likely
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.

Drop this "green" advertisement

Status: Acknowledged

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.

Invest in the Caribbean

Status: Not Likely

 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

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.

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.

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.

2012 Olympics

I think that Verizon is a large enough Company to realize that they should recognize our Olympic winners.  Especially, the dedicated and talented American women and in particularly the five gymnastic young women that fought with all they had to make America champs.  They call these heroes the Fierce 5.  The captain of this team, Ms. Alexandra Raisman should be rewarded for her fierce courage in bring this ship home sailing with Olympic gold and American pride.

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

How about fixing the "Rich Text"?

Status: Acknowledged
by IlliniJim on ‎01-17-2013 03:42 PM - last edited on ‎01-19-2013 05:33 PM by Moderator

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.

Control Employee Performance

Status: Acknowledged
by netcong on ‎08-21-2012 08:01 PM

Over the last year I have spent a lot of time in the Netcong area.  I am amazed at what I see re: your employees and trucks.  On many days I  see your employees and their trucks parked in the Adam's Bakery and Bagel in Budd Lake up to 9:30am.  When are these employees supposed to start work?  


Recently, I  walked near the Ford dealership near Wiltop Rd., Netcong.  There were 3 trucks parked on the side of the road.  One guy was on a pole working.  One guy was in his truck reading a newspaper.  The 3rd guy was in his truck sleeping.  It was 3pm.  I don't  think they were on their own time.


Yesterday I was downtown Netcong.  3 verizon trucks parked in the Quikchek parking lot.  Coincidence? What was that a koffee klotch?  


We all know labor costs have a direct bearing on phone, cable and other costs.  Who supervises these employees?  What controls do you have in place to monitor employee performance.  We don't have FIOS in Netcong and I was looking forward to it in the next 50 years but I am having my doubts re: possible costs.  


Does management care?

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.

Information when quoting. Add date and time of post or message being quoted.


Like for example

Adding it to the list of ideas over at Lithium to see if we can get it implemented in the software. It's not a feature right now that I'm aware of.

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.

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

It seems that I continually receiveFIOS advertising after moe than 4 years being a pioneer in the Bowie, MD market. Not: I get system notices when their a battry reload, or sometimes I get messages with downtime, and other times I get messages selling me on a price at half what I'm paying, but never offers me a reduction in my rate. There is no reson to sell me on your system, especially when it is annoucnement to raise my rates. However, ir your system can ID a probelm reaching my router box with emergency notices, and can tell me when my battery should fail, plus reminders to replace batteries and settings remotely; perhaps, just perhaps, you can tell your techies to make sure I don't get messages for new subscribers, or sales pitches with competing pricing for new subcribers with half pricing for two years than what I am paying after more then four years. Your system should either tell me something to reduce my cost of your service or send rewards for being a loyal customer who waited 6+ years for you to opticize our complex with fiber optics. I like the system very well after the kid sold me on the 1430.1580, and 1640 capability and even introduced it's concept in Moscow (Soviet Union) in 1990 when speaker as CEO of SofTool USSR "90, a software application Conference, no in it's 24th year this next October. I was aslo one of the first to have a Motorola - Bendx brick before you even had cell service. Yet, Bob Williams told me before your Bell Atlantic became Verizon, I would receive a commission on your securing a DoD contract after I demoed it in 1984 in the Pentagon. So, it is important that you research your capability to select messages for newbies and subscribers unles you are offering something I don't have with your costly service pack.

CASH is exceptable or perhaps a chair on the board.


Oh! While flying from NY to IN in 1984 with General Thompson, commander of the Army Materiel Command, in an Army aircraft; I phoned my wife with my "Brick" and not to be outdone, General Thompson asked me if he call call his wife - Yes - then he asked how much it would cost. I told him I had no idea, but when the multiple bills came from every tower we over-flew, I told him to pay the ones he thought were located on our route. Note: When Sprint bought Nextel; they offered dual-channel phones for International, and I spected-out that phone buildt by Nokia. I also, after introduction to their service experienced their miscalculation of the International market after Soviet breakup. I received a bill for my international use of $8,000 with 20 cent per minute program. THey failed to ID CIS break up on their contract. but negelected to pass-through that Billion resolve after I agreed not to take them to court.

Thank you for your post. Could you be more specific? Is your idea that you not receive advertising for services you already have?

Side Bar for Ideas and Statuses for Idea Categories

Status: Acknowledged
by ‎11-09-2012 05:24 PM - edited ‎11-09-2012 05:57 PM

When displaying an Idea Category, have the Idea Statuses box display the statuses as Idea Category Statuses. Or have it display the Idea Status results for the Idea Category you are viewing.


This way a user can look at the status for ideas in a given category.




Other items are duplicated on the right side bar. Waist of space and not filtered correctly for the Idea category being displayed. Perhaps one box was intended to be the count for the currently displayed category, and the other was for all categories. Or just to see it multiple times as you scroll the page?
