Which new features do you want the most?
I just discovered your website and I love it! I think it would be nice to have a section that allows members to review/rate different sugars, honeys, and other ingredients (types of cream or milk, etc.) that we enjoy with our tea.
I noticed when I am searching for teas and I go look at best teas, there are two main sort methods that are useful: Highest Rated and Most Popular. What would be great is if there is a way to sort by some cross-reference of Highest Rated and most popular. Basically a scoring method that is a function of rate and popularity.
Is there a way to add a SEARCH QUERY for Members LOCATION
To search by STATE, to see where other members are Located.
It would be helpful to see what other members live in our HOME STATE.
i agree with this. i live in new zealand and ive noticed that most steepster users are from the states. id like to be able to connect with members who are located closer to my hometown.
I’d like to be able to expand the ratings area. Just a quick list of usernames and ratings so I can see who’s thinking what about a tea. (http://steepster.com/teas/davidstea/14482-kyoto-cosmo Kyoto Cosmo is so low? Do the people who have rated it poorly not like citrus greens, or do they think this is just a bad example?)
We don’t know what feature it is better. We hope you can make a two parts, one is for the customers, the other is for tea shops. and the two part connect each other. Shops and customers can get benefits from it. The two parts can better realize and know each other. This is an assumption, and we don’t what the specific it is. Hope you can do it as an aim.
hello! I’m new on Steepster and I’d like to give you my suggestion for an improvement. Maybe in the past 26 pages of discussion someone else asked for the same thing… but I can’t read all the 26 pages, so if I’m repeating something please forgive me :-)
well, the map in the “places” area doesn’t work properly: it shows me the nearest tea shop in my city (Firenze, Italy), but if I want to see if there are other places in Italy or Europe the maps shows me always the USA.
I hope to come back soon to US but now I’m more focused on Europe :-D
No need to read all 26 pages Claudia (if you had to. I wouldn’t blame you for not wanting to)- the search works for this thread as well. Welcome!
It’d be great if a search for a more specific type of tea (e.g., tie guan yin as opposed to the generic oolong) brought up the ratings for that type of tea. Since it currently only brings up a list, which can often be lengthy, it’s cumbersome to see which have the highest ratings. This would be so useful for folks wanting to try a type of tea they’ve never had and want to choose among those the community rated highest. So any search term (chocolate, chamomile, monkey-picked, organic, etc) would bring up the search targets on a rating-ordered page. When I search ‘organic’ now more than 2600 teas come up — no way to know which are the best.
Also, I’d be interested to be able to see raw mean ratings as an option.
I would say… for vendors who use the site. RSS feed on tasting notes. This way I could integrate a steepster reviews reader on my tea’s page.
This would add value to “honest reviews” on my site, yet increase my sites links to Steepster as well. Works out great for a vendor’s sales presentation and awesome SEO and traffic benefits for Steepster. Imagine if all of the tea shops out there could display a feed on each tea. Returns the love for the support steepster gives tea vendors!
I would like to be able to exclude types of reviews from my feed. It’d be nice to be able to filter out for just the teas I like.
By which I mean, I’d like to not read reviews about teas mixed with non tea herbs fruits, and other things like that.
I kinda like that idea. I wish we either had the option to read all tasting notes, all by certain people, just ones of a certain type of tea, or only ones of certain types of teas written by certain Steepsters.
This is not so much a suggestion about anything tea-related, but in case nobody has mentioned this, I feel like the profiles should be enhanced. For instance, perhaps have an option to have a handy list discussions you have subscribed as well as the ability to view your own (or somebody else’s) forum posts via the profile.
