Feedback forum

We welcome your feedback and suggestions.

N.B. This is a public forum. If you wish to submit comments in private, please contact us.

How can we improve?

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

    Why not add to this the other way change is created:

    • Parenthood

      I would like to see a career profile for being a parent. It seems like the ease of competition and job satisfaction would be very high, with debatable direct impact and advocacy potential, low career capital, and negative earnings.

      To really be a "career" profile I guess it would make the most sense to focus on parenthood without a job, but obviously the ability to stack with other jobs (particularly those high enough paying to make nannies and babysitters affordable) is a perk. Having 4 kids could turn 80000 hours into 320000 hours (maybe a net 240000 but still).

      Whether…
