Which new features do you want the most?
I would love a “Tried It” option next to my Cupboard and Tea Ratings. Mainly for teas I have tried years ago that I don’t remember enough to rate, but would love to add to a track list how many blends I have tried.
Everything’s great! Just perhaps a reward point system for leaving reviews. It would motivate people to try more teas and leave more reviews!
I hate being that person, but…
First, LOVE that the review pages have been updated. They look great on my computer.
The but part: it looks like there was also some great work done on the mobile device review pop up… And for the most part I love that, too. The steeping time, number rating, and temperature are still on slides, though, that do not function well at all on my iPad.
You have to do the same thing as before: tap over and over multiple places until you get in the general area of where you want. I’ve just reviewed a Darjeeling and couldn’t get time, temp or numerical rating where I wanted them and just left them where they got nearby.
This may have been suggested already, but I’d like to be able to filter search results by Steepster score, or at least SEE the Steepster score on the search results so I can see which teas are really coveted by the community without having to visit the page of each one.
Instead of having a “Find a Tea” searchbar, I’d be nice to just have it search throughout all of steepster, or at least search usernames/screennames. Countless times have I typed in a friends name in the searchbar because I keep forgetting that that search only comes up with teas!
Also if teaware and such are included. Actually I can’t figure out where the link to the Teaware section is at all, I only accidentally stumbled across the site address on the discussion boards.
And ‘like’ or ‘+1’ type buttons on posts/subposts. Sometimes I just want to indicate that I like a post or comment without actually having anything to contribute to the discussion.
… now that I read that back, maybe I just want a facebook of tea. o__o
I think a steepster app would be awesome!
I’d like the ability to add personal tea notes. I’m not confident enough to give an official review as I think of myself as a newbie in the tea world. So I’d like to be able to jot notes down on the teas in my Cupboard to sort how long I steeped it for, whether or not I fancy that tea with a sweetener etc.
Oh, just write tasting notes, Lotus! That is what they are for. No Steepsterer is writing an “official review”. :D
Seconded! The ratings on here are crowd-sourced, so every bit of input helps…and I don’t think any of us are getting paid for it, so we’re all unoffical reviewers. :D
