I have problems finding good topics related to mine. It would be great if we had
- advanced (boolean) operators, possibility to search in titles/descriptions/articles
- sorting (new topic, popular, etc.)
- filtering (country, language, recently updated, etc.)
Would be great also if the SERPs were easier to read : not only has widget but also with detailled view were we could read the full title and metadatas.34 votes
When reading a scoop, it would be nice to be able to select multiple tags. Then you only see the posts that have both (or even more) tags. Example: Politics, Obama, Romney versus only being able to select Obama OR Romney. Makes exploring easier!21 votes
It would be much more efficient, if you suggest the user a list of tags that are relevant to his curated hyperlink, than having the user adding no tags at all, because it costs him so much time to think about relevant tags.
It is very easy. You can auto-suggest tags to the user by implementing the Zemanta API: http://www.zemanta.com/demo/
API for the tech people:
A good review of the tech behind it:
It could be great to be able to export OPML file from scoop it, in order to extract RSS flux and be able to organise compatibility with other feed reader.
What about it? I think you should let scoops have more visibility in the home.9 votes
i have many topics, so sometimes i cannot read all of them :
when i come back on my page "What's New on the -a lot of - topics" or the page "My - a lot of - Followed Topics", topics i previously read and topics i didn't read are together and similar :
it would be nice to hide the read ones.

first i'd like to thank you for this amazing resource, Scoop.it gives me way to organize my info and share them in such a nice way.
I'd like to suggest you to improve topics search in two ways. First, giving more results when looking for awesome topics. Second, adding an advanced mode with the possibility of find topics by tags (not only by titles).
Thanks again for great work, keep on this way!5 votes
Adding more awesome topics will make them a little less special we think, but why not.
About adding the possibility to look for articles/topics by tags, it could really be a good idea. We’ll consider your suggestion but we’re still waiting for more reactions from other users.
Thanks for using Scoop.it and we truly appreciate the love!
The more important thing in my curation is to have the best up to date topics on my following list. Is there a way to have a statistics page which could recall the inactive, less active, more active topic on my followings and outside my following (more active) to facilitate an update following topic list ?4 votes
The current search design is cumbersome -- I have to retype or cut&paste the search term after exploring each hit. How about a couple of different search UI designs?
I like the tag search or word cloud metaphor.
I'd also be happy with just a simple directory tree.
A simple list of hits on a list down the side of the page so I can explore the list without retyping.
I realize I can search from Google, from "outside" Scoop.it! but that's also a bit of a pain since it doesn't "know" I'm trying to browse.4 votes

On the dashboard, we can see "12 thanks", "11 approved", etc...
I'd like to have a page with all the "thank you" I received, all my suggested articles, all my messages, etc...
Having just a list on the homepage isn't really convenient.3 votes
quand on descend dans un topic ou dans la page des topics que l'on suit, quand on veut passer à autre chose, il faut remonter le curseur. je suggère de rendre la barre supérieure (dashboard, curate, jusqu'au profil) fixe et présente où que l'on soit dans la page.2 votes

i will be great to have defined topics (keywords)2 votes
Improve the "suggested content" feature under topics and allow for followed topics to be brought in more easily
I am really enjoying Scoop.it so far and it has been great for connecting with great articles about my industry. However, I think the curation system is a bit lopsided and I wanted to provide some feedback. When I search for articles in the explore area, I get a lot of awesome resources. However, when I go to view my topic, the articles suggested for curation based on the keywords for my topic are terrible! Most of them are irrelevant, in a different language or just of low quality. Rather than just using a tool to haphazardly google search keywords for this purpose, there should be a method of slotting in topics you already follow/that you have found using the explore function into this curation feature so they come up as suggested when you visit the topic. If this already exists let me know, but if this is the case it definitely needs to be more clearly explained because from what I can see this is not an option. It is further disappointing to me that on your iPhone app, which I recently downloaded, you can't search for topics using Explore as described and can ONLY curate this list of keyword matches. This isn't a make-or-break issue with me, but I really would like to see the feature improved, especially so I can curate more of the high-quality articles posted by others using the app on my phone. Cheers!

..well, when you manage over your own topics somehow you wish to fast overview things on dashboard or fetch options only available on that page. So that is only button which one can be used appropriately. Thanks on concern in advance.1 vote
