Which new features do you want the most?

I finally finished reading through this topic! Whew.
To bump the suggestion(s) and add a small twist – would it be possible to add an (optional?) tab on the user profiles for pictures like a limited size album? Heck – if server space is an issue, just providing a slot to insert an image URL like for the tea images would work for linking to photobucket or flikr accounts. I really like taking pictures of the tea I prepare, the setup I use, and who doesn’t love showing off their armada of teapots and utensils?
I know I’d use this as a way to add tags to teas showing more specific ways of how I’m getting a particular tea to work best.

I would love the ability to rate teaware as well as teas. This seems like as good a place as any for that!

One quick suggestion! You know when you’re writing a review and you add in your water temp and your time… maybe there could be another option for how much of the tea we used? Like 1 teaspoon, 1 and a half, 2 teaspoons, etc. I tend to experiment a lot with it. :)

Alex C. said

In that case, it would be good to have multiple measurement options too. I usually measure my tea leaves by weight rather than volume.

Both have been suggested, by me and others. I actually suggested the top portion of the tasting note be a bunch of blank fields for everything to leaf amount to water volume. I’d fill in everything, but if a person doesn’t want to that’s no big deal.

The drop down menu for choosing who you want to send your PM to is great, because you don’t have to remember the exact spelling of their username or a url or something.

But could it please not be pre-selected to the first person on the list? Like maybe the first one was just a — and then the system would force you to choose somebody if you forgot, like it does if you forget to fill out the subject line.

Because I just totally sent a very long PM meant for someone else to a completely random person…
And I’ve received a few that weren’t meant for me as well, likely because my username starts with an A so it would be near the top for many people who could PM me.

AMEN! Frank (52teas) gets weird and random PMs from me all the time lol.

Maybe a way to flag teas that are redundant so they can be deleted, or redirected to the other posting for them? I see that a lot with David’s Tea teas, because sometimes they’re listed under both ‘DavidsTea’ and ’David’s Tea’.

I would like an option for ‘De-select All’ in the Teas section. Right now, in order to choose only one type of tea to search for, I have to remove the checks from every other box & it takes a long time.

[However, I am new here, so it’s quite possible that I’m doing something wrong.]

Alex C. said

If you want to select only one general type of tea, ignore the check boxes and click on the text itself for that type alone. But I agree that the interface is clumsy, and there should be a de-select option. Alternately, we could be allowed to select or de-select types and then click a “load” button so we don’t have to wait for the page to re-load every time we change one variable.

Thank you, Alex C.! I’ll try that.

This thread is huge and I can’t read through all of it.

Could we not have a simple way of seeing the exact number out of 100 for ratings when we’re using the slider while making a tea log? If I want to give a tea an even 80, I often end up giving it a 79 because I can’t tell what the slider position is representing.

Cofftea said

Raffi, RE: “This thread is huge and I can’t read through all of it.”, the search feature works for this thread as well. You’ll find this idea somewhere lol.

Instead of saying x tasting note was made x months ago, it would be really nice if all tasting notes had a date and time of publication.

I would like the search to work for new teas. Key Lime Coconut from Teas Etc was added over a week ago and it still doesn’t pop up on a search. Other teas have this issue as well, all newly created.

Cofftea said

And to add to “the things that used to work, but now don’t”- preventing the disappearance of teas from the database would be nice.
