I've opened quite a lot of PMR's over time. A lot of them do not get any further than "an SPR exists but has no or not enough weight; if enough weight then it will be fixed". Weight is given by opening a PMR. This is of course an understandable way ...
The problem is this could be a tome, but maybe it will be done in 8 parts.

Of late I have found that the number of technical articles and tutorials in the developerWorks Lotus zone written by IBM employees far outweighs the number written by non-IBM authors. While I appreciate the insights and detail that is offered by the people who developed the products, I often find ...
A quick glace through wiki pages containing example code (example) proves a systemic usability problem.
The wikis should recognize code (through a code tag? through any <pre> tag where the contents start with a less-than character?) and automatically convert/highlight the code.

As Passport Advantage goes offline for regular late night maintenance, IBM should post on the login page, when the service is available. How many times I needed a file late evening, only to find you get this lovely descriptive error message during login.
Yet, we have no idea ...
Have you ever wondered who wrote the product documentation? Would you like to see their names on topics in the information center? This would help you see who in the community, contributing on developerWorks and the wikis, is also a writer of the product documentation.
IBM Lotus Notes Help/Lotus Domino Administrator Help/Lotus Domino Designer Help - it would be nice if next to each topic in Help there is a search button that would search the product wikis and technotes, etc... for whatever topic the user is on in help for additional information, etc.
"lotus knows" failed. maybe not everywhere, but i'm sure in EMEA countries. ibm gave money and ideas to this managers, but they didn't do their best. One picture every 5 weeks in press is not marketing!!!

In addition to the many existing links to Lotus Community personalities on Facebook, provide similar links to LinkedIn. I don't want to debate the relative merits of Facebook vs. LinkedIn, but LinkedIn is developing (has developed) a very strong and active Lotus Community presence and can provide another mechanism to access ...
