        • Allow new questions to be added in the Bing Distill beta, not just new answers.

          Currently, the Distill Beta makes it very difficult to find questions that fall within my areas of experience/expertise, or to find *common* questions such as "Which U.S. Presidents served only one term?" Please allow Distill users to add their own questions, not just answers to existing questions.

          • Windows Universal App

            A Windows Universal App would make it easier to answer questions while on the go

              • Include Code Snippets feature

                When answering programming related question, sometimes we must give an example with a real code.

                There would be interesting we could put the code inside a code block. It would looks better.

                • Allow uploading pictures from PC

                  Sometimes I would like to illustrate steps with pictures or screenshots but I am unable to get good sources from the search result of Bing. Is it possible to allow users to upload picture from local drive or personal OneDrive?

                      • Prevent Distill from being used for advertising

                        It should be a Bing policy that Distill not be used as a means of achieving free advertisements. Currently, questions can be a keyword phrase (vs an actual question), the answer to which is a company pitch and website link.

                          • Add more people!!

                            Add more people. There is not much happening. Most of the answers are over a year old!! An effort like this requires more people. Please make this as an open beta.

                            • Make search faster

                              Search is extremely slow and makes you almost not want to search because it'll take so long to load. Especially when you're trying to merge duplicate questions, it can be annoying to have to wait 5 seconds for questions to load.

                                • Bringing Bing Distill to other countries

                                  Because that would help the ***** and the users themselves too(like Brazil).
                                  Not to mention that in other countries would have more involvement in the world, helping Microsoft help the Bing

                                  • I cant' access to Bing Distill but I hope will soon open to the public but I would like to contribute with some ideas.

                                    I hope this social will more different than Yahoo!Answers. I have deserted that social because utents aren't very stimulating in terms of intellectual and very left to itself at the mercy of trolls and flames.
                                    I have more ideas for the success of this experimental site:

                                    1.staff always present and can be contacted by e-mail expecially for serious problems (cyberbulling, cyberstalker ect.);

                                    2.not generate conflict among users for buying positions, labels, percentages, stars or any other thing. For personal experience is very frustrating having to deal with users who for selfish you meet yourself or give answers really stupid that…

                                    • Allow alternate usernames

                                      I think it would be preferable to use a nickname/pseudonym versus my real name throughout Bing Distill.

                                      Even using just our first name and last initial would be preferable to publicly displaying my entire real first name on my activity.

                                      I would most likely be much more active if I could use an alternate username or limited real name throughout the service.

                                      • Fix the invite system - Scammers are using it!

                                        The invite system is broken. Every user gets 3 invites, and those users get 3 more invites. This has lead to a group of scammers pretty much taking over Bing Distill. They have created answers with phone numbers that lead to companies with malicious intent, and created new users to up vote those answers and get them published publicly to Bing to fool users.
