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

Thank you for the opportunity to share our ideas. Here are mine:

1. Make it possible for us to edit our posts.

2. Reduce the number of fora: there are several/many that get one or two posts in several months, and usually the posts could have been in a different, active, forum to begin with.

3. Perhaps replace the state fora with zones?

4. Make it possible to find posts by the poster's ID.

5. Work with the active members to make the FAQs useful and more easily updated.

6. Please rethink the pop-up ads. I have added Sherwin-Williams to Lancome in the "companies I will avoid like the plague" category - all these ads are is annoying.

Thanks again!

Joan

Other forums have a built-in media converter that converts large photos into web-based pictures as part of the uploader process. Is there a possibility that you could include this type of process so that pictures don't have to be converted by me before they are uploaded? Or am I missing something?

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

A live chat feature? (If there isn't one already. I haven't seen one)
