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

What can you do with the annoying pop-ups. I understand the advertisements but why do some have to be pop-upish in the wording of the thread? The big picture: the header could have inspirational seasonal garden views or selecting pictures from a photo contest that move in a slideshow manner. Can't wait for the mobile app. Free right? Thanks for asking. Aloha

Hi Lehua,

I know that sometimes it's difficult to find the perfect balance with the ads. You can, however, opt out of the inline text ads (the highlighted green words in the body of the post). If you scroll to the bottom of this page, click on the link that says 'Click here to learn more about in-text links on this page.' That will give you more information and instructions on how to opt out.

Yes, the mobile app will be free! ;)

Thanks so much for your thoughts and feedback. It's very much appreciated!

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,
