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

Getting older my request is the type be a little bolder. On Mozilla, its even worse.

That's an easy question for me. I'd like to have the option to edit my posts after submitting.

Get rid of the pop up ads! Especially the highlighted words we accidentally hit and the ad opens.

Editing our posts would be great.

Greater ability to ad multiple photos directly from our cameras, similar to Facebook.

I agree, get rid of the pop-up ads. They're annoying. I logged on yesterday and there was one overlapping another. I do understand that the ads are how the site makes money, but do without pop-ups.

Agree about the pop up ads. That's the only change I've seen and it is negative.

The Sherwin Williams Sweepstakes pop up is particularly annoying. It blocks most of the page, is nearly imposible to "x" out of and it crashes your site on my smart phone. I love this site. I hate the pop ups.

keep it free!

I'm actually glad you asked now, because the more I come here, the more annoyed I get. The pop ups are out of control. Are there any other changes except for more ads? This sucks!

Edit function for sure!

RE: GardenWeb needs your feedback!

Yes your ad program sucks! There are better ways of paying for the site.
I still remember some 10 years ago where everyone got a virus from one of the ads. It was a mess. Thank god for pop up blockers that work. I never see ads now. It just show how low a site will go to pay the bills. The edit function would be great.

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

-Edit feature

-Option to skip preview message every time you post

-More organized font in general, because it always seems like your on the same page with a bunch of paragraphs (the text all looks the same and is just bunched together)
