  2. Remove customers' ability to delete others' comments in PI Square groups

    Customers have the power to delete questions and comments that are posted in PI Square's groups, even if they haven't joined that group. More specifically, I see the option to Delete, but I haven't actually tried it out.

    I don't know if this has anything to do with many of the groups becoming public, but in any case, "public" should not mean that we all have equal and excessive power.

    Please remove our ability to delete others' comments in PI Square groups.

  3. In the migrated blog posts, fix the links to other blog posts

    When the blog posts of the old PI Square were migrated to the new PI Square, some links to other blog posts were removed, while others were changed. For a good example of such a mix, see the "Just play the song, Schneebly!" section of this blog post:
    https://pisquare.osisoft.com/s/Blog-Detail/a8r1I000000GvSVQA0/pi-square-has-so-many-activities

    Unfortunately, the changed links don't work because they use "news" instead of "Blog-Detail" in the link itself. Please substitute "news" with "Blog-Detail" to make these links work again.

  4. Be able to delete the comment that announces the rename of a blog post

    When you change the title of a blog post, a comment is added that announces the rename. This comment cannot be deleted. Please allow users to delete this comment. Most of the time, readers don't care that a blog post was renamed and the comment just adds unnecessary clutter to the page.

    For an example of a renamed blog post, see:

  5. Revise badge descriptions that mention "correct" or "helpful"

    Several badges have descriptions that mention "correct" and/or "helpful". However, the new PI Square dropped the "mark as helpful" feature and "mark as correct" is now worded as "select as best".

    Please revise the descriptions of these badges to reflect these changes. These revisions should be made when you view someone's badges and on the PI Square badge guide (https://pisquare.osisoft.com/s/article/000032470).

  6. Rename the "You've got Support" badge to "You've Got Support"

    The "got" is the only word in all of the badge names that is not capitalized. It is also not a word like "a" or "of" that is normally not capitalized. Please capitalize the "got" to make the capitalization in the badge names consistent.

  7. Add new badges for the PI Developers Club All-Stars & Rising Stars

    Recognition as an All-Star or Rising Star is a badge of honour. Please make the previous sentence no longer a metaphor by adding badges on PI Square that identify these award recipients as such.

    This should help make the recognition more permanent and more visible, especially since the All-Star announcement posts are even harder to find on the new PI Square than the old one. Some years don't even have announcement posts.

    It will be up to OSIsoft if they want to make badges for each combination of year and category or just for each category. To be clear, the…

  8. Document all badges in the "PI Square badge guide" article

    There are at least 4 badges that do not appear in the "PI Square badge guide" article (https://pisquare.osisoft.com/s/article/000032470):
    • PI System Infrastructure
    • PI System Application Developer
    • PI System Installation
    • Employee Badge

    Please document all badges in the "PI Square badge guide" article. If a badge cannot be earned anymore or if a badge was migrated for legacy reasons, then state this but do not exclude it entirely.

  9. Change click behavior of Area buttons on Home page

    From the home page, if you click on one of the Area buttons (e.g., All Things PI or PI for Developers), it opens a new browser tab. Can this behavior be changed to open in the current tab?

  10. Blog post search stack bug

    When you type a character into the blog post search bar, the results will automatically filter based on what you have typed so far. As long as you let this search complete before you type in the next character, everything will work as expected.

    However, if you type faster than the results are returned, you will see the desired results flash for a second, and then each second after that, you will see the results change and the number of pages in the results get progressively larger.

    It seems like, when a search is interrupted by a new character being…

  12. Restrict the publish time of blog posts to be within now ± 1 year

    Currently, you can set the publish time of a blog post to be over 300 years ago. This makes no sense. Please restrict the publish time of blog posts to be from 1 year ago to 1 year from now.

  13. Change the "Recent Messages" pane to be a mail icon beside the notification bell

    Currently, your "Recent Messages" pane appears on everybody's profile, not just your own. However, it doesn't make sense for messages to be viewable only from your (or a) profile. Please consider replacing the "Recent Messages" pane with a mail icon that appears beside the notification bell. This way, the messages are accessible from any page on PI Square.

  14. Drop support for weak cipher suites

    The new PI Square already has enough security issues. Every step towards greater security counts.

    Please drop support for weak cipher suites. Basically, get rid of all of the orange here:

  16. Add support for HTTP/2

    Please add support for HTTP/2 so that PI Square loads faster. This is especially important for mobile devices.

  18. Correct the spelling mistakes on the Topics page

    https://pisquare.osisoft.com/s/topiccatalog, under the "Products" section
    "PI interface" should be "PI Interface".
    "PI Datalink" should be "PI DataLink".

  19. Switch back to the old PI Square until the new PI Square is sufficiently improved

    The feedback for the new PI Square has been overwhelmingly negative (see the link below), and rightfully so. The excessive simplicity and minimalism of the new PI Square makes it hard to use and to look at. One of the comments from a moderator suggests that the new PI Square isn't even finished yet. Quality control got pushed aside in favour of agile development.
    https://pisquare.osisoft.com/s/feed/0D51I00004cocT2SAI

    Also, many parts of the migration didn't work out so well, such as comment trees being flattened, long blog posts being truncated, and attachments being lost. Too much has gone wrong so far.
