Which new features do you want the most?
Tags so a person can search tasting notes by key words.
I actually think it would be nice if Steepster had an option for making a blogpost that wasn’t linked to a specific cuppa, so that if I wanted to natter about tea, generally, I could do that.
It would be nice to see the average of someone’s list of tea ratings so that I can see what score this person usually gives.
I thought it would be useful to see if someone’s rating of a tea is above or below his/her collection of ratings, but oh well.
Sorry I meant the “average” of his/her collection of ratings. Well that way you would know if the rating she just gave is above or below her standards or not.
Oh, this sounds very useful to me! I know my “midpoint” is fairly high, to the point where I’m considering going back and spreading things out a little lower, and other people give a rating meaning “good” with the same number I’ve been using for “mediocre” — it would be helpful to be able to look at another user’s profile and fine out for sure. Also, numbers are fun. :)
Also, how about making the most recent replies page 1 so that it’s faster to read recent posts?
I would like the ability to add multiple infusions to one tasting note. It would be nice if you could show the brewing time and temperature for each steep. Now I’m always wondering whether I should add another tasting note or leave it as a comment.
Perhaps options on who you would like to receive personal messages from. Right now you can only receive messages from people you are following, obviously good to keep away spam, etcetera. But perhaps options for people who don’t mind receiving PMs from strangers. Something in your account setting that allows you to receive PMs from “All Steepsters” “Steepsters I am following” “Steepsters following me”, or something to that like. Unless that’s already been suggested and I overlooked it, sorry.
Don’t know if this was already mentioned, but some type of “points” system would be cool. Meaning, for performing certain actions on the site your “tea score” increases. Then you could have titles such as “Tea Beginner” or “Tea Master”. Just a thought. =)
This might be here, but it isn’t showing up in the search… how about different degrees of privacy/contact limitations? Not only the ability to lock tasting notes as private and block lists, but also a middle of the road- make tasting notes available to be read, but not commented on. Also the ability to pick of the tasting note can be visible to “all”, “no one”, “my followers”, “those I’m following”, and “reciprocated followers” (meaning people I follow that follow me back).
It would be great if we could see exactly who was rating a specific tea without leaving a tasting not, and what their ratings are. That way we can keep an eye out for companies that might rate their own teas at 100 with multiple accounts.
