Which new features do you want the most?
Now that I’ve been on the new format a few days and figured things out, a new feature I’d like to see is a Comments tab on my Dashboard, for comments those I Follow make on Tealogs. I have been having to scroll through the past day or two of Tasting Notes in my Dashboard to check for new comments on Tealogs.
Sorry if this has been covered already, but surely I am not the only one who cooks with tea? A cookbook sector being a forum, or a place to put in recipes like you can put in teas, or anything really to share your culinary side of tea would be nice.
Also…what about a Personal Company Count like they do for the teas in Cupboard, Teas on Shopping List, Teas Logged, etc??? I’d LOVE to see the number of companies I have logged (for variety reasons) but then again, I’m a nerd when comes to this stuff! LOL
Dear SteepsterGods! Please make a edit botton on comments?
Normally I can correct myself when I very eskimooly forget to doublecheck my spelling. But not on the comments! – thanks for the new dashboard by the way <3
LOVE the new updates- especially the extra emails. But one says “email me when someone sends me a PM”- how do I view my own PMs or send them to others?
Also, it’d be nice to get all updates by email and have the ability to completely disable the dashboard. Since “so-and-so replied to so-and-so topic” doesn’t take you to the specific comment, that feature is pretty useless. I end up spending too much time fishing for it. I love reading my updates in my email so I don’t need to see them over again. Some “notices” and “recent activity” are duplicates already anyway.
Love the updates, especially being able to see when people you Follow comment on Tealogs and delete-edit on comments. PMs will be awesome too when they debut.
Now that we can better decide what we want email notifications about and what we don’t want emails about, could it be possible to expand this to what we would like to see in recent activity and in notices on the dashboard too? I’ve noticed that I’m beginning to get notices when people have commented on something that I have liked but not commented on and it’s a bit confusing for me when I get 20 notices, most of which don’t really involve me. Alternatively I’ll have to start being way more stingy with my ‘likes’, and I’d rather not do that…
I, on the other hand, like being able to see what’s being commented on in my Notices. I knew I wasn’t seeing all the comments being left but wasn’t sure how it was selecting which to show so thanks for pointing out that it’s based on which Tealogs you “like”. I also like “liking” Tealogs. Just wanted to put my two cents out there as well.
I just think maybe it fits better under recent activity, and notices should be for comments for my posts or posts I’ve commented on. But then maybe I’m not really deciphering the way the ‘like’ feature works right. Maybe I’m doing it wrong, I don’t know. For now I’ll just tighten my own ‘guidelines’ for liking something, so I don’t drown in notices. I can’t remember which I’ve commented on and which I’ve just liked.
ETA: And now I just got a notification that I wrote this. I have to admit that made me laugh. :D
Yeah, I know I’m getting them for more Tealog comments than just the Tealogs I’ve commented on. I’m about to get my notification of this post. =)
Spell check, colored font, and smiley emoticons.
Many browsers have a spell check built in, why overload steepster with it?
