GardenWeb needs your feedback!

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
GardenWeb Community Manager

RE: GardenWeb needs your feedback!

Hi Tamera - Firstly I would like to thank you for the opportunity of offering constructive criticism to help improve even further an already very valuable resource.

Firstly, I think a better method of posting pictures would improve things considerably e.g. something similar to the system Dave's Garden Forums recently adopted whereby you can post five pictures at a time with each follow-up instead of the one at a time system offered here at present. I know we can still use Photo Bucket but that is also time consuming requiring switching backwards and forwards between two different sites.

Even without any changes, I still think this is a great forum with a wealth of information in its archives, however they are also user "unfriendly" when looking for something and could be made much easier to access if the various topics were kept in a dedicated section e.g. everything about Neoregelias in a Neoregelia section, Aechmea threads in an Aechmea section, hybridising threads in a hybridising section and so on; in a similar way to that used on the Bromeliad Forum at:

Unfortunately since I became a member four years ago, a lot of our members seem to have been lost to Face Book which in my opinion doesn't offer the wealth of information offered here, but unfortunately I can't offer any ideas as to why they left or how we can encourage them to return again.

All I can say is, keep up the good work, it is appreciated.

All the best, Nev.

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,
