www.asp.net website

Announcement: This forum has been replaced by Visual Studio Developer Community to provide you one convenient and responsive system for all feedback. You can now suggest new ideas, browse and vote on existing ideas in the Visual Studio Developer Community.

We’d like your suggestions and ideas to help us continuously improve the ASP.NET website, so we’ve partnered with UserVoice, a third-party service, to collect your feedback. Please do not send any novel or patentable ideas, copyrighted materials, samples or demos for which you do not want to grant a license to Microsoft.

Note: your use of the portal and your submission is subject to the UserVoice Terms of Service & Privacy Policy and license terms.

We look forward to hearing from you!
- The ASP.NET Website Team

How can we improve the www.asp.net website?

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  3. Full width layout

    Try and make the website full width? Most developers today have pretty large screens.

  8. Better searching of code samples, VB vs C# in the Forums for example.

    It would nice to have the option to exclude solutions or searches based on code base.

  9. Weblogs - Add a contact form like the one we had at before the migration to Orchard

    We had a contact form at http://weblogs.asp.net/xxxx/contact.aspx
    Please restore that. Please make the old URL work so that existing links to the contact page continue to work.

  10. Better point scoring

    Points might be provided on the quality or completeness of providing a full solution. Like if the problem was posted requesting help in VB, a C# solution wont get points. Like wise a link to an off site web page would not get as high of points.

  11. More frequent news updates

    There are major changes happening with ASP.net but site is relatively static.

    I look at the "Community spotlight" section regularly, but there are only periodic updates.

    A suggestion is to post news and article links weekly.

  12. pull data from various social sources

    a twitter feed that searches for asp.net topics. top or new asp.net stack overflow questions.

    a section on new nuget packages or updates.

    have some kind of rep system for voting on articles and writing styles of community content.

    pull data in from ohloh on .NET OSS projects.

    create spaces for .NET user groups and allow users to search for these groups.

    bring some xbox love to the site. Allow a way for developers to connect and play each other online form teams. Then maybe have some redmond groups take on some of the .NET user groups or other dev…

  16. incomplete/unanswered threads marked resolved

    this is for the asp.net website.
    i too often see threads with incorrect/incomplete answers marked as resolved and cannot have the correct answer posted because thread is locked. asp.net website cannot be taken as a serious resource for answers, that is a shame. as its domain name and direct affiliation with microsoft should mean its an authority for the best answers.

  17. Link Posting Forum Users

    Kick out people who cannot code and just search Google and post links which are NEVER any help. Done only to increase their points score

  18. Overview section should have dedicated content

    As I understand it, the Overview section should be the first thing the newcomer (me :) should read (if he doesn't want to view the video which I don't). But the Overview section is just a collection of links and for instance after reading the first 5 articles, I have read a description of a controller too many times. I think a dedicated content would be in place.

  19. Change to forum by publishing REST API

    You definitely need to create a REST service to allow access to forum question in a programmatic way. That way we can have custom apps as well as Windows Phone 7 apps where we can read, post and update questions and answers.
