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

A dot or mark by each post that you have commented in would be tremendous (it can be hard to remember), as would the ability to edit posts.
A post count and/or "like" feature of some sort, and the ability to quote others' posts would also be nice.

The post option that HomeSealed mentioned is a nice option.

Photos are great.
Bulleted or numbered lists are nice feature.
The ability to post a link to inside a reply is nice too.
Post counts lend some credibility.

Some sites have the option of feedback numbers next to a poster's name. The more meaningful feedback that you give and get points for, the more helpful you appear via your rating to folks.

Kinda bugs me where posts without reply are artificially kept at the top of the post list. Good example is this forum, 2 week+ old post is still sitting at top of the heap.

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
