Some initial feedback, also to test Send Feedback:

  Submit New Ontology (

    It might be helpful to include RDF among the Ontology Formats

    choose this option if you want users to be able to explore and
    search your ontology in BioPortal => ... OOR

    It would be nice to be able to submit just from a URL, not
    requiring the file to be downloaded and then uploaded

    Prefered Name Slot => Preferred Name Slot

    Categories should be site-configurable.  OOR might use Biomedical,
    Geospatial, Other, Social Networking, Upper, ...)

    Is Home Page for the ontology or for the Contact?

    response page

      Thank you for submitting your ontology to BioPortal => ... OOR

      Please keep in mind that it may take up to several hours before BioPortal => ... OOR

      search yoru ontology => search your ontology

    It would be helpful to send an email confirmation to the submitter.

    It would be helpful to record the submitter in the Ontology
    MetaData.  This might be different than the contact(s).

  Ontology Reviews (

    what's the empty box next to the review?

    It would be helpful to include a timestamp for the review and
    perhaps a link to information about the user.

  Ontology Reviews (

    Home/Documentation/Publications Page should be hyperlinks

    I'd move Contact Email after Contact(s)

  My Account (

    Phone Number seems to be replaced by account number, even after editing.

  Send Feedback (

    First Name => Full Name?

    General comment: It would be helpful to include a link to the
    repository home page, perhaps as a hyperlink on OOR Open Ontology
    Repository (like - perhaps this requires a logo image).

  Help/About (

    Generalize for OOR, e.g.

      Welcome to the National Center for Biomedical Ontology's
      Bioportal => Welcome to the OOR Open Ontology Repository based
      on BioPortal (with hyperlink)

    bioportal-annouce list => biopotal-announce list

I hope this is helpful.
