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

Open up the trading/exchange between Canada and the US. Gardeners are allowed to trade seeds now across the border so long as they aren't huge lots. And the same goes for Europe exchanges.

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

When editing, it would be nice to also have the ability to 'delete' if you post something and realize, as happened recently, that you accidentally posted in the wrong forum. I would have liked to have a 'delete' option so I didn't have to e-mail and bother an admin to do it.
I've seen the option where you have a window of time after posting to edit or delete.

I often wish for the ability to upload more than one photo at a time. As it is, if you wish to upload 2-3 photos direct to the GW forum, you have to post multiple times.
