  1. CrossRef DOI metadata are not enabled in the FigShare DOI system. (Please, verify that at http://www.crossref.org/guestquery/ ). This makes the discoverability and semantic linking of FigShare quite difficult.
  2. Figshare provides a novel service, but I would prefer to put my data somewhere with well-defined metadata standards and more professional credentials. A fair bit of the stuff on figshare is garbage and spam, which brings the whole service down a level.
  3. Generally very positive. I do find it difficult to remember how to edit material already there. An edit button or tool tip to remind me needed (or a better memory). Eventually I click on something and I get there. Also nice if I could cut and paste th
  4. Great attempt to break old habits of hiding data. Not sure if it's gonna pick up -- the value of sharing is still unclear.
  5. Great service overall! but integration with DataCite needs to improve, some gripes at the moment include missing metadata fields & out-of-date metadata records compared to source data at figshare.com site
  6. I think it's great and I hope people stop being old luddites who don't know how to use their computer.
  7. I use figshare primarily for work that I need long term archiving support (CLOCKSS) and cannot deposit in Dryad (because it is unpublished). The API also makes it the easiest robust place to share data.
  8. Keep it up
  9. keep up the great work!
  10. Not only sharing data, figshare should become the place to publish all forms of research. It is one of the most promising Open Science platforms around.
  11. Please integrate with github and other such repositories - a doi for a github repo snapshot for example would be very useful. Otherwise, keep up the good work!
  12. You need to give us access to real storage space and find a way of making us pay for it. Many disciplines need space to store large datasets (100s GF, TB).
