  1. Reduce delay in posting articles on TOR (make it premium?)

    I have noticed a pretty significant delay (many hours) between the posting of an article in the original blog and seeing it on TOR at least for things like Krugman's blog). This is especially annoying for "big" blogs (like Krugman) where I want to get an early comment in, before inundation or even closing of comments. Please optimize this -- it is much worse than Google Reader was. If this requires more computing power, make it a premium feature -- if the price is reasonable ($2-5/mo?) and there are some other useful premium features (like faster opening of the article…

    I am trying to unsubscribe from a feed. I get this message:

    Could not unsubscribe. Refresh is in progress, please try again later.

    Allow me to cancel the refresh so I can unsubscribe.

  3. Delete old stuff

    I feel that the interface is slow and I suspect the reason is that my feeds have many entries.
    I think it would be great if you let me configure on a per feed basis if I want old entries (ones I already read) to be kept or not.
    Most of my feeds are about things I don't care about after reading, so I want them to be deleted if that will speed things up

  4. Make o, v, and b open the selected item, not the topmost visible item.

    When you click on an item in the middle of screen, the list scrolls until the item is at the top of the screen. If you then scroll the screen down to show items above the selected item and then hit o, v, or b the topmost item will be opened in a tab instead of the selected item.

  7. Update CNN more often!

    When I used Google Reader CNN was updated almost instantly. Now I rarely have anything from CNN and it looks like the last time you updated was almost 12 hours ago. This is pointless!

  8. link to share to invite people to follow

    Other services have a link and sometimes a graphic that can be posted on a person's blog and will allow readers to follow with one click. Is there such a feature with The Old Reader?

  9. Allow me to transfer a Google-linked account to an Old Reader account

    I initially created my account as a Google-linked account, and I now regret having done so, as I'm trying to get away from having Google track all of my activity online. It would be nice if I could create an Old Reader account without the link to my Google account and transfer my feeds to that.

  10. Password-protected feeds

    I would love to be able to follow the full RSS feeds for password-protected sites (e.g., Livejournal, where each individual users' feed can contain a mix of open and password-protected entries).

  11. link accounts

    I log-in through Google, but want to link that account to my Facebook account. If I log-in through Facebook, it shows that I have no subscriptions since that account is apparently empty. How to I link the two accounts?

    From comments:
    “Uservoice isn’t a support center. Either way you should receive an e-mail with a confirmation link. In my case I had to wait for the e-mail around 20 minutes, so by the time you’ve posted this you should have already received it. ;)”

  14. Trending Sort?

    Trending doesn't seem to follow the user's setting "Posts order." I don't know if this is intentional or the sort order is based off some magic trending algorithm.

  15. Ability to share with followers and not the public

    I like the ability to share items publicly, but it would also be nice to only share items with people who follow you, all or specific people.

    And it would also be nice if you could prevent people from commenting on your public shared items.

    This has now been released. If you go to your settings, you can choose to protect your shared items. If selected, you must approve all new follow requests, and your shared items will not be available to anyone except your followers.

    If you “like” a post, your name may still appear on the post for all users.

  16. turn off desktop notifications

    I don't want desktop notification, but clicking the wrench icon and selecting disable removes it from my running applications in Chrome. How do I just turn off notifications?

  19. Sort by getting date and tome

    Sometimes new posts are below the posts I have marked as unread (I have the reader set up to show unread posts only, newest on top).

    It seems, that the items are sorted by the date and time the item was created and when the feed is read and contains posts older than the items I have already seen, then these older posts go below the posts I have seen.

    Then, to read newly found posts I have to scroll down and again mark the posts I have seen before as unread.

    Would it be possible to add an option…
