      Great suggestion! I will definitely forward it along for the team to review. Thank you so much for the feedback.

      This is an important discussion of a very critical issue. I wish Countable alone would be sufficient to hold our representatives accounts - that sending a message to our lawmakers would be sufficient. It's going to take a lot more work on our part to achieve this.

      Here's a few ideas - what are yours?

      - After you've sent a message to your lawmaker and some time has passed - give them a call and follow up.

      - If they send you a response that you disagree with, tell them that - either over email, through Countable or through a call

      - Make sure to mention that you're watching how they vote in your correspondence and that Countable keeps you updated

      - Finally, leverage social media - after you vote - share it to Twitter or Facebook that you have done so - make them know that you are watching...

                  Great idea.

                  How do you think we should calculate it?

                  For example – we could base it on how often you vote like a particular “liberal” or “conservative”.

                  Would that get at it?

                  Would you like to see it across all of the bills you’ve voted on or just particular issues?

                          Interesting. So you’d like to be able to go to your Reps page and then filter for just the bills you’ve already voted on? Very cool. We’ll consider it – thanks for submitting it.

                            Thanks for all of the feedback. We’re making continuous improvements to the Public Profile featureset. Keep it coming!

                            BartBart commented  · 

                            Great comments. Regarding privacy - your public profile page is yours and your private information is not shown unless you choose to share it.

                            By default it shows your first name, your profile picture and any opinions you've authored on bills.

                            You can customize it by:
                            - adding a brief bio
                            - updating your profile pic
                            - selecting a username (and vanity url)
                            - adding links to your website, twitter, facebook and google +

                            Thanks!

                                  This is a bit tricky, but we’re working on a solution.

                                          Great idea!

                                          A user recently said: "Hey Bart!

                                          "When I Yay or Nay an issue, I think there needs to be some immediate feedback, such as a graph animating the user sentiment in relation to others. I envision a graph animating up to show you this and perhaps similar issue opinion. I think this is an important part of herd mentality (and I say that with all due respect to humanity). Perhaps another data point would be the percentage of people who have written their officials (which I imagine is low), might help increase their activism."
