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

Eliminating the huge pop-up or at least make it disappear if you hit the x.

RE: GardenWeb needs your feedback!

I appreciate the easy photo uploads.
It is necessary to carry advertisements in the cyber-world, but some of the advertisers are so intrusive that it, to me at least,has exactly the opposite effect intended, I don't ever want to even consider their product.

Can we have a "Like" button

or something similar? I'd love to leave some kind of indication I appreciate someone's post without having to write a new post.

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,

Some forums go slow and others go very fast. The number of pages archived varies accordingly. There are posts that I can remember from years ago and sometimes look up but there are times when the only option is The Way Back Machine Internet Archive and that is often sketchy as they miss a lot of posts. If there was an archive here it wold help a lot more than some may realize.

RE: GardenWeb needs your feedback!

When you start a thread there is the option to have follow ups emailed to you. Then if you go back to post on that thread there is the option to not have the emails continue. When I am in a hurry I sometimes click on the "Click here" box instead of the "Prevue" box and have to copy, save, go back and start again if I still want to get the emails. If the "click here" were to be put at the end of the sentence instead of the beginning it would help differentiate between that and "prevue" and save time and irritation.

RE: GardenWeb needs your feedback!

I'd like to see the "search" respond with the most recent posts first! Not just here at the Party, but in the other forums as well; sometimes I try to locate a thread where I remember the subject matter but not the exact title, and the search results will be from all over the calendar but rarely contain the rather recent post I'm looking for!
