STICKY: An Exciting Update!

For more than a decade GardenWeb has provided a free and open platform for the exchange of ideas, questions and answers, and general support for gardeners, home and apartment fix-it-uppers and and all around Do It Yourself (DIY) enthusiasts. Recently we asked you to tell us what could do to make GardenWeb better and promised to act quickly on those suggestions. We have started to make good on that promise, introducing new features like the ability to edit posts after you have made them and being able to upload photos with your messages. At the same time we have fixed a number of minor bugs and continued to enhance the site's speed, stability and security. In short we have been busy working in the garden!

Today we are excited to begin rolling out a new logo, updated headers and footers, and some general page layout improvements.

In the coming weeks and months we will continue to improve the GardenWeb service. Some of the specific projects we are working on include improving:

- the quality of search and discovery
- site navigation and overall ease of use
- member profiles and personalized services
- iPhone, Android and tablet support

As with any change there may be unexpected consequences, but we are committed to addressing them as soon as we learn about them, guided at all times by our overarching motto to "do no harm".

Feedback you have given us to date have set our priorities and will continue to guide our direction. We look forward to continuing to give you what have asked for. And, as always, we welcome your comments.

Team GardenWeb
