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

An edit button!!! It would be nice also to use html in posts.

I haven't used the new way to upload pictures so i can't comment on that. I see that they'll upload from your computer, which is good - no more fighting with Photobucket! Yay!

As far as the post replies being emailed to you, that can be both good and bad. Sometimes someone starts a thread that ends up going on and on long after they're not interested in it anymore. So maybe there should be a way a person could turn that off after awhile.

Thanks for doing this!

Right now we can only upload, [direct] one picture in one post, two or three would be better and between space for writings, also automatic downsizing.

Every time in preview when the wording is edited the picture disappears and have to over again, ..hope this could get fixed.

Thank you so much!

Unfortunately the gardenweb messaging system is still inconsistent. I never get gardenweb messages that are sent to me, nor do I get email notifications of posts I request updates for. And it's hit or miss when I try to send messages to other people via gardenweb.

Would like to see the basics working instead of some of the fancier stuff to be honest.

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 have stopped uploading pictures to Gardenweb because they are only kept 6 months. The value of keeping messages is diminished when the included photos are unavailable.

Also, a tab after entering the username should take you to password, not do you want to register.
