    Agreed-

    There shoud be a feature to suggest a more appropriate category for a community-submitted domain.  For instance, I just downvoted "edition.cnn.com", which was submitted as Video Sharing.  It should be marked as News/Media, but I could only say yes, no, or not sure. 

    My idea would be to add a fourth button, to suggest a better categorization, then subsequent voting views of that domain would have two choices (or three, or four...) with each category.  In the CNN instance above, you would see:

    edition.cnn.com                 Video Sharing added by zzzz on foo bar           | yes || no || not sure || suggest a better category |

                                              News / Media added by aaaa on bar baz          | yes || no |

    No, this is not how it becomes better.  You only rarely would be using this.  Instead this already exists in a much better way:

    If you click on the notepad icon to the left of the domain name at https://community.opendns.com/domaintagging/
    you're landing here: https://domain.opendns.com/edition.cnn.com

    And this is the place were you can propose another category, where you can add adult information, where you can vote on all suggested tags, and where you can flag the domain for review.  So even more than you expect.

    Good info... I will be using this.... often.

    "Better" is a relative term, "different" is a little more applicable in this case. Different is not always better.  Random notepad icon conveys zero usable information in this case... maybe we should think about universally accepted iconography, like a gear (settings) or pencil and paper (edit).  Personally I'd prefer actual words written out.
