Which new features do you want the most?
I think being able to submit our pictures of the tea leaves would be nice. I’ve been tempted when I create a new tea or such, but, I then think that the company that made the tea if they ever have a presence here might not really like that… but a personal gallery of this is what my tea leaves looked like, this is how it looked brewed, etc would be kinda neat. Or, maybe I’m just odd because I like looking at that kinda thing :P
Here’s a link to a discussion with more blog links, to give you ideas for your (potential) blog. I’m particularly fond of sororiteasisters.com
I’d love a way to search my own cupboard for types of tea (ie: pu-erh) OR for ingredients (that would go through the names of the teas, descriptions, and my tasting notes of the teas, if that’s possible.. you know.. look through anything in my cupboard for the word vanilla).
Mobile formatted site! Mobile formatted site!
I would like to be able to post pics of my teas
Is there somewhere to rate tea companies not just the teas? I see you can rate tea places and teas and tea products…but not companies themselves. If I’m going to purchase from X company it would be interesting to know about their history, what city they are based in, really any information that tells me more about their company and what experiences other steepsters have had with them.
Something that show when you have read, or commented on a thread. Like a little icon. Some are over 1000 replies and span years.
Jason, we are all putting ideas and wishes for a long long time here and I am sure you’ll consider them all but …is there really another version of Steepster in the (soon) pipeline ? I’d like to know :)
I think it would be helpful to have ‘custom lists’ that we could either make Top 10s, Swap, Samples, Wishlist, etc.
Hi Jason, It would be great if there was a filter for Organic teas on the Best Teas page: http://steepster.com/teas Thanks!
I think adding a small shout-box on our profile pages would be nice for users to drop in and say “Nice teas!” or something friendly like that. It would be a nice and easy ice breaker to help us meet people on here~.
If you’re worried about flaming and such, you could make them user approval based.
One more thing, I think that a little status updater would be kind of nice for little personal updates as long as it has a 150-200 character limit so that we won’t be overflowing with long personal statuses on our dashboards.
I think the shout-box is a more realistic idea though.
Let me know what you think if you can. :)
Edit: Also, I think that you guys should add a “Teaware” list and “Teaware” reviews and ratings in their own category.
