site-wide enhancements to info display & new features #428
Big-picture list of enhancements for volunteers to tackle - on our open-source, non-profit platform!
Briefest background: AskThem was conceived primarily as a "We the People" for every U.S. elected official, and secondarily for public figures with verified Twitter accounts. Stakeholder research showed that verifying a question-asker as a constituent was usually necessary to solicit a response, so UI put visitors through an address-or-ZIP-lookup funnel before asking a question. Data limitations on elected official info played a role in what we were able to develop with tech lead @walter, who's been incredible.
Goals below are towards making it easier for new visitors to find their question target and publish through a question, outside of the address-lookup funnel - relevant for user stories around, say, the Presidential debates and major Twitter accounts.
Input welcome on above priorities.
