  1. broken link

    Found a broken link on this page: https://80000hours.org/career-reviews/tech-entrepreneurship/

    The link with the text "You might also like to read about our approach to rating careers" leads to an outdated page.

  2. Twitter links on pages don't have pre-written text!

    Every time I try to share your article through twitter (by clicking the tweet link above the article), I get a popup ready to post to twitter with the link to your article, BUT THERE IS NO PRE-WRITTEN TEXT (like a copy of the article title).

    I know it's not much work to copy/paste the article title, or to write my own text, but I suspect there are many people who want to share your post on Twitter but are too lazy to write in something.

    I think you're missing out on some re-tweets ;)

  4. Workless Work?

    Are jobs that mostly only require one's presence in the repertoire of possible job suggestions? Such jobs can be a good way of earning a living while doing independent research and writing. I, for example, am a security guard and spend about 75% of my work time reading. I also make a decent enough salary that I can donate a substantial amount of my income.

  9. Collaboration with and/or research checking of Paul Hawken's Drawdown book

    Paul Hawken's suggestions of how to effectively move into the 22nd century are intriguing, and I would love to know how a crosscheck of his assumptions and research prove or disprove his conclusions.

  11. The video in the "take a break" page of the decision tool is not available in Canada

    ...and probably other countries. Maybe you should replace it with a video that is available everywhere?

  12. Career planning tool date field is backward for americans.

    In here:
    "When are you next going to review your plan?"
    The date field is DD/MM/YYYY, which Americans will find backwards. The international standard that avoids this is putting year first YYYY/MM/DD

  13. Contact effective idea-explaining channels in Youtube

    Contact idea explaining Youtube channels like Vox, big think, VSauce or any that explains stuff to their audience and that align with your views to explain your organization and your research to them to convince them to explain those things to their audiences in their characteristic ways

    Basically reach out for groups or persons that have larger influences to try to believe in your views and spreads those ideas further, either online or in person (although it's arguably easier online)

    Or try to get their followers interested and make them ask for that content from the content creators
    Or even…

  14. What to do when you don't have "options" in Mind?

    The career guide / quiz seem to assume a lot more clarity of options and purpose going into this than I expected. Almost like I need to be most of the way to deciding before I bother with 80000.
    I don't know what options I have, because it's a fine line between none and so many vague / weak hopes or ideas. Without clarity of my options I can't even begin to gain value from your guide/quiz.
    What will you change?

  15. Add a simple way to point out errata & typos in posts (+ errata for the Julia Galef podcast transcript)

    (Solution might be the same as https://80000hourshelp.uservoice.com/forums/220029-feedback-forum/suggestions/6940000-get-annotate-able-texts )
    This might improve quality, as only a few people who notice problems make their way here, and neither this feedback & ideas page nor the Disqus comments section seem the right place for a typo thread.

    For now, here are my nitpicks for the Julia Galef podcast transcript -- https://80000hours.org/2017/09/is-it-time-for-a-new-scientific-revolution-julia-galef-on-how-to-make-humans-smarter/ -- not so much because I'm a stickler for accuracy but because some of them seem like they could impede understanding:

  16. Please start publishing articles to Apple News

    I would love to be able to read 80000 Hours via the Apple News app. It'd be nice to have all my consumption in one place.

  19. "Work with us" page is outdated

    The only oppurtunity listed links to a page which talks about a 2015 or 2016 start date. The page itself says it was last updated 2014.
