Web 2.0 Site Quality Report
Follow the link to find out how this idea can allow people to rate bug free or buggy websites and shame buggy website owners into fixing the bugs, making the web a better place for everyone.
Sites that are bug free or fix bugs get praised. Sites that don't fix bugs get downrated. It seems to have worked for my list of Pants websites with many of them fixing the bugs after they were listed on the site.
Firefox is open about its bugs and it's helped to build a more secure and robust product. By having an open reporting system, it not only encourages bugs to get fixed but helps the website get a better steer on how many people the bug affects and what they were doing at the time. The number of e-mails I get at the helpdesk saying "your site is broken" when I support over 20 sites with thousands of pages between them is not very helpful. Additionally, if I bug is already logged, people could see that and rather than having to spend time typing in the details all over again, they would just click on a "me too" button to add their voice to the list.
