    I just checked out the list of screen casts, and realized that they don't get enough attention on the front page. It's only because Chadk posted about them that I noticed them.

    We should highlight screencasts once in a while, eh? Great point. Podcasts too. Media in general.

    Thanks,

    Moderation has improved a LOT in the last few months, we haven't had threads running wild ...

    The video quality has remained about constant, with a lot of PDC videos being posted which was great.

    The addition of screen-casts is welcomed. Pod-casts I don't use.

    The wiki is "fine" .. ^shrug^

    The polls could be a little more obvious on the front page (you can't see them unless you scroll down) and perhaps could be updated more often?

    The search still sucks, and the bug in the anti-swearing filter hasn't been fixed 'yet'. Ditto with the CSS font size in IE (IE7 fix?). There is also a bug with the clock times, they don't report as BSM even though it is set in my profile. The JavaScript thread page changes aren't great, but might be too hard to fix.

    Scoble also still isn't wearing a C9 guy suit during video interviews even though we know you have a suit you could put him in... Wink

    Maybe I'm just crazy, but it seems the main RSS feed (http://channel9.msdn.com/rss.aspx?userid=46&watched=true) is borked.

    1) The link to the website goes to a 404 (screwed up once you guys did the design change).

    2) Sometimes that RSS feed grabs the last threads in the Coffeehouse instead of the latest videos.

    Answer to 1)  That's true, the link is bad, thanks for pointing that out.

    Answer to 2)  That because you're subscribed to "What we're watching", which is a selection of posts we bubble up to the front page.  They don't have to just be videos.

    I'm missing a little bit the total of how much guests are on the page and how much people are logged in...

    Otherwise: GREAT!

    Remember the concept behind the 'Echo-Chamber'.

    I would like to see even more transparency!
     
    Blogs are great but they are still a sanitized view of whats going on behind the scenes!

    I want to see more of the raw thinking.

    Perhaps it would be good to see reflections of internal forums posted on C9 may be not warts and all but don't hide from us!

    First of all: This place is wonderful!

    Now, having said that, a "Mark all posts read" link would be great! Wink

    Optimizing the PocketPC experience would be most wonderful.  Wink

    I would really like to second this! I use C9 more on my PDA than my desktop via an RSS reader, but if I want to post back I have to go to the site and it's not a good experience!
