Is there some way to make unchecking the “notify me when this topic is update” the default? I’ve set my email settings so I only get notices when I have a PM, but I can’t figure out how to stop the notices about new posts except by unchecking the box in each thread, each time I read it.

Don’t believe there’s a default setting, but you can unsubscribe individually by hitting on the “Subscribed” button next to the thread.

Rating scale – Maybe it’s more correct to put five faces (red frowny face representing zero, and then 25 up each up to smiley face representing 100), because every time I want to rate a tea, it’s actually either lower or higher than the score I want to give.

The ability to add tasting notes for bulk herbs. Like what if I make some tea with fresh spearmint from my garden? What do I file that under?

You can always add it as your own tea, or as a custom blend.

Email related:

- when I open an email from another member on the site, I’d be thrilled if it automatically defaulted to where I left off/where they started writing. Scrolling down, especially in large email conversations, gets challenging.

- I currently have three messages in my Inbox that are unread. For the life of me, I can’t tell which they are, or what page they’re on! Either make the emails stand out more so that I can tell which one is unread (I have good eyes, and I’m relatively young – I still struggle), or default the newest messages to the top of the queue.

- The ability to archive messages. Most of the messages in my inbox I’m done with, however I want to keep for reference. Archiving would leave more space for all involved while leaving things manageable.

Log related:
- when someone else logs my handle in thanks, or even just mentions me, I’d love it if I received a notification with all of the others that this has happened. I swap often, yet have missed more than a few thanks or notes specifically made to me publicly because I’m sleeping when they’re awake, etc.

Since I use gong fu cha methods, the steeping time doesn’t go low enough. On the second infusion I only steep for 4 seconds, then 6, then 8, then 10. Steeping time here starts at 15 seconds. Thanks.
Great site.

It would be really nice to have the tea log alphabetized. In order to find a tasting note for a certain tea, in order to change it, is rather annoying right now.

I don’t know if this has been mentioned before and didn’t want to go through all the suggestions to find out… sorry… just too many pages.

I would love to have a “last page” button the size of the “next” button on each post page so that when you can choose to go right to the last page of the posts. I sometimes read the forums from my phone or tablet and have a hard time pushing the number button to get to the last page because it is too small.

Maybe an address book tab in the inbox. I have so many messages that I save strictly for addresses from swaps and it’s such a hassle to go through allll my messages with that one person to find the address :)

I like this idea.

Right?! :)

I would love an iPhone ap :) I searched for one and didn’t see it. Would be so fun to have Steepster on my phone :)

Can the general discussion forum be subdivided into more sections perhaps?
