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

A swap forum for the Trees and Shrubs Forums (possibly combined as a Woody Plant Exchange Forum) would be great. Seems as if the regular Seed Exchange and Plant Exchange forums get people mainly interested in annuals, perennials, and houseplants. The few woody plant offerings get lost in the shuffle.

Also, I would suggest the possible removal of the Gallery Forums in both the Trees and Shrubs Forums. These are seldom used and posts there often go unnoticed/unanswered. Now that GW has the built-in picture adding tool, these gallery forums seem superfluous.

brandon7 has it right on. This has been the best advice offered. The galleries are no longer needed in ANY of the forums since photos can be posted with each post now. Newbies too often think if they are posting a photo to go there and their questions are missed.

Also stop some of the bullying that goes on in some of the other forums.

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,

Well, I didn't see any type of edit link under on any of my older posts. I guess I'll look at this one when it posts.

WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It does work (on new posts)!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks Tamara!

BTW, when people do this, they'll probably have to refresh the page to see the results.
