Site feature request.
« on: Mar 15, 2005, 09:36 »
Have a feature you wish the site would have?  Have a cool idea for the site?  Post it here.  We might make the change tommorow, or next year.  But we want everyone's ideas.

I'll start:

How about the jobsite works like an airline companys's site.  Instead of flights with seats, we have outages with heads.  People on a pre-approved list could go in, see which outages need who when where, and instead of you picking your seat, you pic your slot.  Instant confirmation of the entire outage season.

This would be an outstanding idea but would require very high integrity of the technicians signing up. They would have to show up for the outages they signed up for. If only a few of them reniged (sp?) the utilites would lose confidence in the system and it would lose all credibility.
If a chicken and a half can lay an egg and a half in a day and a half, how many days will it take a grasshopper with a rubber foot to kick a hole in a tin can?

Basically, its the SAME system the companies have now.  They are still confirming and have to show up.  The only difference in this system, is that it makes the recruiters job a little easier, by pre-populating their "wants to go to this outage" list.  WE do not staff, or submit resumes, THEY do, just like now.  We are not trying to squeeze anyone out of the picture, we are trying to make their life easier.  And one of the key words in the original post was "Pre-Approved".  Only reputable people would be on the pre-approved list.  ITs very complicated, I could send you details if you wish.

Anyway, this thread is for suggestions, not people saying they like an idea.  (I do appreciate it though).

Please post suggestions here.

I was brought to my attention that an alert tone or message alert that says you have a new PM while you're already logged in.  That way when you see someone online you can PM them and then they can respond back?

Recently I noticed a banner ad while in a mad mouse clicking frenzy. I couldn't get back to it, and had to click a while longer. Is there an easy way to get to our advertisers?

(The particular ad was EPCE; and I think this is an incredible advertisement since this route is what I have been recommending for years!)

I guess I should say why I care: I could place the actual ad as a link rather than EPCE directly. That way this site is "credited" for the link, and they see the value of continuing to advertise here...

Yet another on my list of things that could be done with infinite time and resources:

Driving directions to each site.

Since each site already has longitude / latitude for GOOGLE, it might be easy.
I recently visited a non-nuke site that used this feature for driving directions.

http://www.westga.edu/index_directions.php

On the "TO" it auto-populates with the long / lat coordinates and you enter the desired starting point.



Just another suggestion, with much admiration for all the work already put into the site.

Our site already does that, has since the news maps /facility info section went online...
 what, a year or two ago.

For an example, visit:

How about the ability to order business cards thru nukeworker that can be used to exchange personal info with co-workers, business contacts etc. This would also help make other nuke workers aware of nukeworker.com.

Is there a way to have members set up their home page to cater to individual needs... like having HP tech positions only post on the job boards. Seems like the board is flooded daily with the same old engineering positions on a daily basis.

Just a statement of fact.  It's just another of the benefits of the $3/month that a Gold Member gets.  I can assure you that Mike isn't threatening, just giving another option.

Very useful! I have played with this feature. I must admit it is odd to see a link to "Closest Wal-Mart to Chernobyl"...  ;D
