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

Get rid of the pop-up ads. This isn't 1998.

Remove the "Gallery" section from the Landscape Design forum. It is a dead end for people who post questions there.

Remove the ads that pop up. A lot of GardenWebs forums have slowed down on posting or even checking to see new posts because of them.

i just feel that the entire site has kind of fallen asleep here in the past couple years. perhaps some decent advertising in garden magazines or some other way to attract some new life to the forums.
also, picture posting is still a bit of a night mare to get the details on HOW to do it. perhaps an area in the site that one can turn to for stuff like that. and please don't discontinue posting pics in the actual posts. no one wants to leave the site to view a picture.

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

To anyone using Firefox and who wants to be rid of ALL ads on ALL sites permanently, just install this small, safe and free program and your problems will be solved!

Here is a link that might be useful: AdBlock Plus
