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

Mobile app would be nice. I tend to post on here a lot using my iphone. Ne chance of getting the sute mobile friendly? Zooming and trying to read posts can be tough on the eyes

GW's listing of threads by the most recent response date drives me nuts when I'm looking for a thread I've been watching. They can show up anywhere in the list later their posting date.

One can remember the approx. date when a posting appeared, but listing by response date makes it necessary to do a search and sort through perhaps pages of hits.How about listing threads by OP date like the most of the forum world? Or maybe provide a menu selection for listing by OP date or response date?

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,

I would like to see a forum on sustainable/green remodeling - not just green energy. I want to do things in the most sustainable way and would like to have a place to ask those questions. While I can post in topic-specific forums, I think some interesting discussions would come up in a sustainable remodeling/building forum.
