GardenWeb needs your feedback!

gwannouncementsOctober 17, 2012

Hi everyone,

As you may have noticed, we've been sprucing up the site a bit. Among other things, we've added new ways to upload photos and email notifications of post replies. We are still cleaning out cobwebs and weeding some areas of the site, but we are also working on some bigger projects like a better search engine (yay!) and a mobile app. We'd also like to get some feedback from you. What enhancements or additions would you like to see? What do you love? What do you hate? Think big and small!

We can't promise the moon, but please know that we will read and consider every one of your ideas and suggestions. We appreciate your loyalty and dedication to our site and we know how important your community is to you. Help us make it even better!

Please use this post to offer your feedback. But, as always, you are welcome to contact me directly by clicking on my profile page.

Best regards,

Tamara Amey

Especially for this forum, would it be possible to not allow further responses to a thread after it reaches a certain age?

I can see the value in being able to pull up old threads as a reference for people doing internet searches. But after it has been around for a year or so, you could allow people to read but no not allow them to post there. That would have to start a new thread.

Spammers pull up threads that are five years old and post on them. There are two examples of this here. The second one is a thread started in 2004.

I agree about the older threads especailly in the KT where there are enough posters there to keep it going. In a place Cleaning Tips, I think they should be left, but closed to replies. There are a lot of helpful tips in these forums.

Also could someone post a reason for all of the double posts, one was posted 4 times. They may be hitting the back button instead of the return to the forum.

Hi everyone!

You asked and we listened. Today we are very excited to be debuting our newest feature -- post editing! To use this feature, go back to the post you wish to correct and you'll find the link under the 'My Clippings' links on the right side of the page.

I want to give a special shout out to all the testers who tried to break the editing tool. ;) Your feedback was insightful and invaluable. Thank you!

You may have also noticed that we adjusted the login cookie awhile back so that you should not have to login repeatedly.

Stay tuned -- we have more cool things in the works!

As always, please let us know if you have any questions or concerns.

Best regards,
Tamara
