1) bug with the grant order resetting sporadically upon dropping a grant at a new location.

2) We could make it crystal clear to users that ‘Save’ vote is as good as voting. Although it comes up with a confirmation message above at time of saving, it would be nice if your registered vote confirmation was written next to the ‘save’ button too for future peace of mind, instead of only seeing the same ‘save’ button as before you voted.
1. I haven't experienced that. What browser are you using and is it a specific location or locations you notice it happening?

2. We plan to refactor that a bit, yes.

Since we abolished cut-off grants, there is no distinction between a grant that is partially outside the money and a grant that is entirely outside the money. I suggest we change the colour coding system on the voting table so that any grant which is partially outside the money is orange along with its rejected brethren.

The motivation behind this change is to communicate clearly to the voter that rating a grant in this position is equivalent to rejecting it. The fact that it straddles the divide between funded and not funded has no impact on the result, yet the current colour-coding makes it appear as though it might.
I'm torn on this one. I'm curious what others think. Anyone else have opinions?

We didn't find the color-coding voting system confusing. I could see value in the future in providing a running local tally for grants we have selected "approve" to show a total compared to the forecasted total available, the system as seems sufficient to the task. I'm not sure why proposed grants can't be voted against, but I'm sure it was considered and someone wiser than me probably made the decision to o..mit the feature.

I'm not entirely clear on the need or value of the individual voting log that is also public. For example, being new to the system I probably saved four maybe five "voting records" as a proof of concept in trying to determine how to use the different functions of the voting tool. I'm sure someone will look at it and assign "meaning" to the different vote submissions, but there is none. In fact, I also struggle to think why I would need/want to look at others' votes/voting logs

Thank you all for the feedback.

The following are issues and suggestions that we will be fixing under the grant

1. When there are no grant proposals in the forum, change the message from:
There are no threads in this forum.
to:
No grant proposals have been submitted for the upcoming grant round as of yet. You may submit a proposal starting on {grant_round_start} by going here until {application_deadline_date}
.

2. Move assumed FCT dollar value next to requested FCT rather than down at the bottom of the page.

3. Show the list of grants here: https://factomize.com/forums/grant-pool/grant-rounds/4/ for non Standing Parties (Non-ANO and Guide usergroups).

4. Allow the ranking of grants as soon as the application period ends.

5. Automatically update grant proposal prefixes based upon funding or not.

6. Allow anyone on the team to edit the grant proposal.

7. These two messages should be reversed.

8. List not approved above withdrawn here: https://factomize.com/forums/grant-pool/grant-rounds/4/

9. Show final scores for non approved grants.

10. Factomize tracking threads: https://factomize.com/forums/threads/factomize-7-core-and-general-development.2317/

The following will be done as part of our lowered efficiency unless we here significant push back from the Standing Parties
(I don't expect the below to take much time. 2-4 days of work, maybe a little more as the drafting may end up more difficult that I'm estimating)

11. Ability to save a draft.

12. A personal version of the voting tool.

13. Ability to minimize the list of grants in threads.

14. Remove the yellow partial funding bar and have partially funded grants be red.

15. In the grant dropdown menu, add a link to the "Current Round" and rename the current link, "All Grant Rounds".

16. On https://factomize.com/forums/grant-pool/grant-rounds/ for concluded grant rounds, have a second column that links to the corresponding tracking forum with, "View tracking of funded grants".
