ICON MouseOver ToolTip PopUp s on Project Pages  
Written by x-n-th the 30 Jun 12 at 16:45. Global category: User Interface. New
Icons for supported platforms on the project pages should have pop up information tool tips , for example ; could be extended to every icon showing any information. I didn't know what the icon for the BSD OS looked like and had to search for it. This readily available information via a popup would "encourage" users like me to use these vaious other softwares.
ThanX,

Written by x-n-th the 30 Jun 12 at 16:45.
For each icon that is shown to convey informatin , such as on a project page listing what OS platform is supported , have a tooltip popup on mouseover telling what the icon is.

a host app somthing like google adwords but for software  
Written by myie9 the 22 Jul 10 at 15:15. Global category: New Hosted App Suggestions. New
sf should supply a Hosted Apps: AD plateform. it can log how many installations of my software were made by other. so pay for them. my software could visite a url to verify the installation.

As i know, there is no such plateform.

it's expensive to AD in google for my software.

if we pay my users to promote my software.it would cheaper and better.

the main functions should include:

The users of my software register as a partner and get a url.
then he/she send the url to his/her friends or put in website or blog.
when my software was installed been used some days later, send a url to feed back.
then i could pay for this installation.

Aid software search with visual representations of the software  
Written by qubodup the 27 Feb 10 at 00:13. Global category: Search. New
When searching for software, the entries have no distinguishing features. I think that adding an image to each or some entries might make browsing/searching easier.

Solution #1: Screenshot
Written by qubodup the 27 Feb 10 at 00:13.
The obvious solution would be to display the default screenshot of the project. It will allow to identify a known project quickly. That's what you did back in the old days :)

Since you now have an icon functionality, the icon could be used.

Solution #3: Statistics
Written by ctsai the 1 Mar 10 at 15:40.
Another option would be to have an image of statistics, revision control activity for example. This would look bland for projects not using these though. Also might require quite some work on the generation of these statistics.
