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

I want to be able to delete a post if I am the one who posted it.

I would like posts to have an expiration date on them, and after that date, they are archived. It's endlessly frustrating to reply to a post that jumps to the top of the queue, only to discover afterward that it was posted 5 years ago.

Instead of posting my plant trade on the PNW Exchanges page, I would like an 'Events' page. Instead of posting directly to the events page, perhaps members could submit it for approval before it is posted? That would keep the volume of posts competing for member's attention to a minimum.

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,

Hi Tamara,
I'd like to SEE the people on here. make it like facebook where you can have an avatar and some photos so you're not just talking to text. I see this improving the buddies area too. (knowing who your talking to.)

Also, I notice when I search, there's no way to sort by date or if there is, I didn't find it.
