Which new features do you want the most?
Another wish for the general good: I have more than 3 pages of teas in my cupboard listing now, and though I can predict a bit better what will be where by ordering them by tea company or by rating, I cannot go directly to the last page of the cupboard to find my Yuuki-cha teas: I must page through all the pages. And I only have 60-ish teas listed. This is not nice, and I would like a simple
set of options, to move through the several pages more efficiently.
the ability to create a custom “shelf” (or category) in one’s virtual cupboard would be nice as well – so we could designate loose vs bagged; samples vs. larger amounts, etc. as we wished.
How about starring or otherwise denoting teas that have been featured as a select item on the tea’s profile page?
…I’d love to be able to see what number rating I’m giving a tea in the slider. I know that sounds silly and basic and I admit that I’m a simple creature, but I’m always a little lost in it. Crazy.
I haven’t read through the 22 pages, so this may have been suggested already, but it would be nice to have suggested teas based on ones that I rate highly. Or similarly, suggested steepsters with similar tastes.
A way to uncheck all selections on the Tea search page, or at least start with none checked. Also if there was a way we could just make a post about whatever (similar to Twitter) rather than having to post about a tea. I notice alot of people post about personal things along with their tea post and it just seems like something that should be implimented.
Aaron, as to your 1st suggestion- I agree. It’d be so nice if none checked was the default. As for your 2nd, most of the story telling in the posts are some way related to the tea. I like the story behind the tea personally. I haven’t seen something like this in ages here, but if it would have absolutely nothing to do w/ tea in anyway, I suggest you leave that to places like twitter, facebook, etc. The #1 rule (the steepster guys call them guidelines) for the forums is to keep the discussions about tea- and I think we should keep the rest of steepster like that as well. Although I do think a chat room would be nice- that could be used for general “get to know each other and hang out” chat.
Yeah a live chat would be nice. I would just enjoy a way to talk with other people on the site without having to post about a tea you just had first.
Definitely. I just don’t want this to get to be a place for tweet or facebook status like posts.
I agree, I wouldn’t want someone to just start spamming everything they did every two minutes. I think the chat thing would be the best plan :)
It’s not very obvious (which we plan to change) but if you click on the tea type in the list on the on Tea search page, that will uncheck all of the other types and just show you teas for the type you clicked.
A category for chai spice mixes (sans tea) also one for instant.
I didnt have time to read every comment so if this was already suggested,i second that!
A feature to show your teawares;Teapots,cups,trays etc..
that might be fun.
Various versions of that idea have been mentioned. There is a flickr group/album whatever but I don’t flickr. Also the search function will help you not have to read thru all 23 pages:)
The ability to tick “appointments by request” and/or a “special notes about this tea place” section when adding a new tea place under the “places” section.
For forums, I’d love to see the most recent posts appearing first, rather than having to do the 2 extra clicks (1) on the last page number and then (2) when you get there the most recent is still at the bottom of that page.
