GardenWeb needs your feedback!

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
GardenWeb Community Manager

Minor thing: the Lighting forum title has said "NEW" for several years now.

I. Would LOVE to see thread preview, where you can hover over a title and see the beginning of the post
Also, thread memory, where you only see the unread replies, and don't have to find your place or read the whole thread over.

Maybe an easier way to post..without having to preview first?

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

For the GW moderators --- I notice the new changes as of this week. If you are interested in feedback on this, my only comment is that the light blue font for topic/subject lines is difficult to read. Would to be possible to give them a darker shade of blue? Thank you.

Since the new changes, I still can't read complete OP initial posts as text runs over into advertisements on the right side of the page. Help!!! Also, find the new blue font too light for post titles--needs to stand out more.

I mostly like that the ad at the top of the page doesn't expand and then contract as you try to scroll down the posts. That issue on this one site had me get a popup blocker.

I've had the same problem as Texasgal from time to time where advertisements cover the post. Not always, just sometimes. Love the new edit feature, BTW!
