You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

  1. Allow me to always see a full screen of unread articles

    When I use 'j' to go to the next article, and I came to the last one visible on the screen, when I click 'j' - I want the list of articles to scroll up and show the full screen of new ones.

    Now it stays at the bottom, I see all read articles above it (which I do not want because I ready read them), but I do not see what comes next because it does not fit to the screen.

    Quote often I scan trough left panel rather quick looking at titles of the articles and when I…

    • When manually refreshed, it would be better to scan the whole list as articles may update or previous coding errors may be repaired.

      There is an error occured in the cn.engadget.com feed and the articals are shown incorrectly. Later the feed recovered, but the artical synced before is still in a mess. I tried to click the Refresh button but it dosen't work here. But when I done the same thing at the Old Reader, the previous articals are also refreshed and shown as it should be.

      • Don't use black as a background for code

        Can you provide an option to change the formatting for code samples (<pre> at a guess). The black background frequently makes it impossible to read - e.g. a sample may have dark blue text, which I simply cannot read on a black background, while the original site used a white background

          Can we raise this cap at all?

          • Please allow the sidebar to be pinned for desktop users. I have plenty of screen space and it is irritating to have to keep opening.

            • Show the author of the article in the mobile version

              This has been implemented in the desktop version a few releases back, but mobile still lacks it.

                      • Feeds for tags

                        It will be nice if there was a way to get an RSS feed for my tags and folders.

                        This will help with a bunch of things:

                        - I can share the URL for that tag/folder with my friends, and they can subscribe to my feeds tagged "interesting" for example.
                        - I can subscribe my podcast player to my own "listen" tag. I am interested in a lot of podcasts, but not all the episodes of all the podcasts are interesting to me. In this scheme, I will tag the ones I want to listen to as "listen", and my…

                            • Reached my limit on Starred Articles?

                              So I can't star more than 10,000 articles? I know it sounds crazy, but I do go back to starred items (easier to search for the articles I might want to read again, or funny pictures).

                              Sure, 10,000 sounds like overkill. For me, it isn't. Please give us the ability to star many many more items.

                              Thanks!

                                are very blurred/low resolution. When viewing the original page the images are small, but still larger than in card view and with better resolution

                                • Integrating a content extractor to read full article directly into the reader (from pocket, read it later, Diffbot)

                                  Can you make avilable a button to fetch original content of article and display it directly into the reader ?

                                  It should be possible to do it per news, per feeds (default options), globaly.

                                  • AOL Reader Watches

                                    It would be wonderful if AOL Reader would allow one to create 'watches' so that users could receive info on specific topics similar to what FeedDemon offers.

                                    • Sort folders on Home pane in the way like it is in the (left pane) list

                                      Sort folders on Home pane as I sorted the folders in the list
                                      It will be more useful.

                                      • Configuration option to increase height of items in Home

                                        All the feeds I have subscribed publish an abstract on their feed that is not longer than 3 - 4 lines. On the home screen this gets boiled down to 2 1/2 lines. This makes the home screen unfavourably to me. As on the other screens this is not done.

                                        I understand that other feeds publish way longer items then mine, so that the behaviour in general is useful. So I would like to have the option to increase the number of lines that are displayed on the home screen, say in a range from 2 1/2 to 6 or…
