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

The new ability to easily post an image is great, but need to be able to post more than 1 image.

Also, once posted, there appears to be no way to delete a photo.

My list of complaints is long. But I will only post my top 3 complaints as I know will reflect the majority of the community members here. If adresses will wipe out most of my other complaints.

1. Antiquated forum software from the 90�s. Really need to replace your relic software with something like Vbulletin 4 & 5. I and many others do not post much here anymore because it is just way too much hassle to add links and pictures. There are better forums elsewhere to do this and much simpler to use.

2. No Moderators or administrators.

3. Related to #1 and #2 there is no method of reporting problems and/or abuses.

I totaly agree with @texas-weed. Plus it would be very nice to be able to edit/delete posts like now i can access the site via my phone but sometimes it double post a comment. I would like to be able to delete comments when i goof.

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,
