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 valuable internet resource for gardeners everywhere. The advertising, however, has become more and more obtrusive and annoying over time. I understand completely the need for financial support from sponsors, but advertisers need to realize that there is a point of diminishing returns. There are products many people would never buy and companies many would never support precisely because of the advertising strategies employed.

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 think better ways to search would be good. For example, search for posts that only contain photos.

Sometimes I find Garden Web to be extremely slow at loading a page. It is due to the amount of Java Script Advertisements I believe.

Best Regards,

Tonight, nearly every thread I try to click on gets hijacked by a Pantene full-page ad. I tried numerous times to log in and the ad popped up. I click on a thread, and it directs me instead to that ad. I, too, understand the need for advertising dollars but this ad is hijacking the site! Before the change in format, I was having issues with 'ghost' black boxes that mimiced the ads over part of the page. The new format seemed to fix that but there now seems to be a glitch with this. Just wanted to let you know.
