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

As I'm typing I am fighting popup ads, window jumps up and down as ads dynamically change size. Your post has two hyper links with popups. One of the few sites that get around my browser's popup blocker. It calms down after awhile, but I often just give up.

This editor is very tiny and pretty old school.

I do wish you well. Back 10 years ago GardenWeb was state of the art, but things change.

Install adblockplus It stops those annoying pop-up ads and blocks most ads.

Should the Koi ponds and Aquariums forums be merged into this forum?

Can you dump the "preview" and let us post with one click?

Also, some forums let you read the first few lines of a post from the home page (hover over thread title). That would be great here.

RE: GardenWeb needs your feedback!

Gardenweb is a wealth of information. I have learned so much thanks to this site. I am very happy to hear that you are improving the search as this was the only thing about Gardenweb that I had problems with. The popups are a bother but hey they keep it free.

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,

Can you add a spell check function?
