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

I will respond as a relative newbie! First, I have to say I love this site!

But if I were to pick two things that would make it a little better, one would be the ability to search posts by users and the other would be a way to see more posts on a page.

I love the little camera icon so that I know which posts have pictures but if someone links to their pictures, I might miss it because there's no icon. Fortunately, I read almost every post!

Keep up the good work!

I'd love to be able search by users, too, and I'd really like a "view first unread" feature.

I have searched by user. Just put their name in the search box. I would like to be able to upload more than one photo. Maybe it's possible and I just can't figure it out.

>have searched by user.

Yes, but that's not really the same as 'find all posts by this user". It brings up every thread where they are mentioned, too, for example, even if they didn't post in it.

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,

Thank you so much for adding the edit feature. Not being able to edit was frustrating, now that's fixed.

I too would like to be able to find all posts by a user.
