We all know the frustrations that are experienced when signing many petitions/pledges.
We all know about the seemingly endless clicking when trying to sign all of our invitations to act, from friends.
We all notice the needing to click onto Change.org's home page in order to return to our invitations of action.
Also, we understand this sort of diversion can easily be subtracted from the system.
We only want to be able to return to our invitation of actions without wasting our time and energies, just so Change.org can get another click onto it's website.
Some have commented to me about meaningless petitions being past around and how that signing them weakens Change.org's influence. So does Change.org really care about the issues or does Change.org only care about how many clicks it gets on it's homepage? In addition, if such meaningless petitions hurt the influential part of Change.org, then should not those in the higher offices get this matter resolved quickly? How is it there is even a question of whether or not Change.org has a deflating issue of influence?
Update from Justin - Community Manager:
Fantastic feedback. I'll get our UI guru to take a look at the process for invitations and post-signing workflow as soon as possible. It's an incredibly good point and something very much worth investigating.
As for the "send to editor" link - would you, as Change.org community members, be willing to act as these editors? With the community at the lead of editing each other's petitions, we can cover more petitions, more of the time. Increasing the quality of petitions is something we would love to do, and we'd love your help doing it.
If you would like to talk with me about the best way to implement this, or to be a part of the process, please don't hesitate to reply to this message, or send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks for the feedback, we're always open ways to improve the site!!
All the best,
Justin - Change.org
