Please rank the following ideas for improving the CIVS service. If you think an idea is a bad idea, rank it below "do nothing ranked below this". You can also write in new ideas. Your feedback is appreciated!

Only the single favorite choice will win the poll.
The poll ends at some point. The poll supervisor is Andrew Myers (andru@cs.cornell.edu). Contact the poll supervisor if you need help.

Give each of the following choices a rank, where a smaller-numbered rank means that you prefer that choice more. For example, give your top choice the rank 1. Give choices the same rank if you have no preference between them. You do not have to use all the possible ranks. All choices initially have the lowest possible rank.
