Which new features do you want the most?
I know people have requested more options to sort our cupboards out, but I don’t know if anyone mentioned the ability to add tags. I’d love it if I could tag all the teas in my cupboard with things like “black”, “black blend”, “Christmas Tea”, “iced tea”, “main cupboard” etc.
It’d be even better if we were able to use our own tags as I’m sure people would have other ways to sort their teas, but it would make it easy to go in and see which Christmas teas you have, or which teas you thought were great iced etc. If we could do this with all teas we’ve rated too it would give us a good idea of what we should re-stock!
Right now I would just like more consistent site stability.
Steepster elves, I know this is easier said than done sometimes.
Feature: If a user mentions a specific tea in the comments, it would be nice to have it autolink to the tea being mentioned.
Example: I loved Samovar’s Ryokucha! (links: http://steepster.com/teas/samovar/1838-ryokucha)
This isn’t directly for the site, and I only joined yesterday but have you thought about an app? I just checked iTunes and I don’t see one but it would be great to be able to update when I’m out and about. Just a thought :)
YES! An app was my thought when I joined yesterday. It’d make it so much easier to reply to people when you aren’t at a computer. and you wouldn’t miss out on a great swap if you could chat on the go.
I’d like to be able to click on a member and see the discussions they’ve posted (not contributed to, but actually created).
I’d also like to see the most recently commented on threads pop to the top of the discussion list (under the first default 3, of course), displaying the username of who made the most recent comment, not just the username of who originated the thread.
createaforum.com has free hosted simple machines forums that does this and more. easy to maintain too.
plus with that, we can fulfill another one of my wishes. to be able to track the topics that im most interested in without my inbox getting flooded :)
I’d like to be able to have a comment section for the tea companies. I know there are a couple places that make really good tea and others that sell some horrible teas. It would be nice to review the company as a whole before making any regrettable purchases. Unless of course this is already something you have and I just haven’t found it yet.
I would greatly appreciate having blurbs about, or links to the different tea companies. There are 7 variations of “Special Tea” but which one is the shop in Victoria http://www.specialtea.com/?
I want a steepster app for my iPhone, that includes easy discovery of nearby tea locations. :)
