Which new features do you want the most?
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.
Better yet, how about the ability to make a tasting note w/o a rating, but not vice versa?
I just noticed that I can’t delete my tasting notes(correct me if I’m wrong). I clicked on the button by mistake and can’t find out how to delete them.
Yes, you can. Click “edit” and you can delete it from there, “delete tasting note” is in red.
I like the “Places” menu, I just added one of my favorite local places. I think it would be nicer if when adding a place, you could just type in a business name and zip code, and it would run a Google Maps search (or similar) to fill in the rest of the location info.
also the ability to add a note when you list a place as closed – some near me have relocated/changed names/changed format and “this place is closed” doesn’t quite cover it all…
It sure would be nice to be able to see the phantom ratings. People who rate the teas, but don’t write tasting notes.
I vote for not allowing them all together.
I think it would be cool to list the ingredients for a tea, like how we can currently list descriptions, and then be able to cross reference teas to compare tea blends from different companies. It’s hard to find specific ingredients in tea sometimes because tea names don’t usually reflect the ingredients directly.
This could also be expanded to be searchable with “include” and “don’t include” which could be helpful for people with allergies to some ingredients.
Uhm…I’m VERY new here, so I apologize if this is a dumb-dumb question…
Just since I’ve been on Steepster (a few days) there’s been a change in the top bar (now says Teas, Places, Discussions, Explore, Select). Before there was a drop down menu (I think it was called “explore”?) where you could explore “people” and get a page of Steepsterite profile pics and use it to check out different people’s tealog? I found it very useful for finding new people who’s tasting notes I enjoy.
What happened to it? Did it move somewhere else? And if it’s gone, any chance of getting it back? Like a “People” button up top or something?
