Please rank the following ideas for improving the CIVS voting service. If you think an idea is bad, rank it below "do nothing ranked below this". You can also write in new ideas, but do check the list to see if your idea is already there. Your feedback is appreciated!

CIVS is an open-source project on GitHub, and you are also welcome to try implementing your ideas. If you're not happy with any of the language translations, please let us know by making a GitHub pull request or opening an issue there.

Only the single favorite choice will win the poll.
The poll ends when the next suggestion box is created.. The poll supervisor is Andrew Myers (andru@cs.cornell.edu). Contact the poll supervisor if you need help.

Give each of the following choices a rank, where a smaller-numbered rank means that you prefer that choice more. For example, give your top choice the rank 1. Give choices the same rank if you have no preference between them. You do not have to use all the possible ranks. All choices initially have the lowest possible rank. Note: “No opinion” is not the same as the lowest possible rank; it means that you choose not to rank this choice with respect to the other choices.

Ballot reporting is enabled for this poll. Your ballot (the rankings you assign to choices) will be visible in the poll results when the poll ends. However, your ballot will still be anonymous: no personally identifying information will appear.
