Which new features do you want the most?
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.]
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.
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.
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.
Perhaps we could get a sub-forum for swap threads, so that more people are urged to start them, but so that they don’t clutter the general forum? (Perhaps we already have this. If we do, and someone would be so kind as to direct me, I would be very grateful)
I agree- one thread devoted to swapping would be nice, especially since you can reply to a specific post and it will be indented which will keep it from getting confused.
That makes even more sense than what I was thinking of. And since we already have a giveaway thread, why not an official, stickied swap thread?
But it does need to be pinned so that it stays at the top of the forums.
Maybe add “please use the search to look for information before starting a new thread” to be added as one of the guidelines? We’re all guilty of that one at one time or another:)
I really want to be able to post up pics of teas that i have tried from companies that are not in your data-base!! This is extremely frustrating for me.
Then enter them.
not sure if this has been said before. but what about random tea button.
Sometimes i do not know what i want.. i just want to try something different. Instead of picking a company or kind of tea. Just click the random button. It would be a good way to find some tea/companies that you would never have looked for.

Love the site. I would actually love to see the rating number increase/decrease as I slide the ratings slider. The smiley faces are nice but I have to wait for the page to reload to actually see what number my rating fell on.
Also any plans for an iPhone app?… maybe a built in steep timer, notes etc
App App!!! How ’bout an App???
