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

Wonders will never cease - Gardenweb interacting with its users!!
Since its inception I have used Gardenweb and gained much pleasure and useful information. My criticism now, however, is much the same as it was at the beginning. Gardenweb has the potential to become the world's no.1 reference for gardeners but it is too USA-based. My suggestion is that you have fewer forums that are geographically limited ie. Arizona gardening and more that are topic-based ie. Gardening on a Limestone soil. You have a lot of topic-based forums and they are easily the most popular ie. Orchids, Roses etc but there is quite a lot of overlap and some forums are pretty moribund.
Good luck with your face-lift.

PS: I have had a lot of log-in problems because of Yahoo's unnecessarily complicated system. In fact I have been forced to re-register using a different email and password because it was no longer accepting my old one and would not reply when I tried to use the "forgot password" system, a clear indication of a bug in the system. Can't it be made simpler? - Ian

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
