    Hello, all, I'm starting a new thread to help our new ADMIN TaliaRose. We can put together in one convenient place some suggestions and wishes for improvements in QB. I'll begin:
    Feedback: Please make it more easy to find the Feedback for Users section. It is sorely hidden at the present time. Thanking you in advance, of course!

    There's a feedback for users section???

    Seriously, I wasn't aware of the need for one. I think the board is great and quite easy to use already. But I know you IT folk are always looking for ways to improve that we don't even think of wanting.

    Welcome aboard.

    Have a longarming section! There are enough of us to warrant a separate area, IMO.

    I would really love to have a couple of different sections for photos. One for quilts/and one for other things. This would help because I could subscribe to what I really want to see and unsuscribe to what I don't have time to see.

    Is there a way to "Like" - as there is on Facebook?

    How about a poll feature:
    Red binding?
    Blue binding?
    other?

    I "Like" this idea! I'm a Facebook junkie! Wonder if we could get away with a QB Facebook fan page????

    How about a WIP section where people can show us as they go what they are doing. Being a newbie and a very visual person I would love to see how others tackle complicated projects.
    Thank you!

    How about arranging the search results by original date posted?

    I think FEEDBACK should include positive comments for other members who really help a lot. Such as someone who goes out of their way to look up stuff for others, writes tutes, etc.

    I was thinking the same thing! Did TaliaRose ask for this?

    Knowing you are needed is the Grandest sort of welcome! It's true I didn't present a genteel 'Howdy, ma'am, welcome, welcome, welcome...' but I've enjoyed plunging right in to a big pile of work whenever I showed up new to the job.

    I did think of a couple of features that would be nice to have.

    Being able to send pictures by PM.

    Having a way to readily see all the swaps you're currently signed up for without having to check each one individually. (I know, I'm lazy! LOL!)

    And once again, welcome aboard.

    I would like this too! Also it would be wonderful for the space to write in a PM would be larger that way we won't need to give out our email addy! ooh adding picture to the PM would be great too!

    I agree, let's not scare her away! Don't overwhelm her, let's give her a chance to get used to things too.

    Imagine, being a beginner quilter and someone will be asking you to make a really difficult quilt. How would you feel?

    May be a little bit pressured?

    I'd like to see A Permanent Topic called: Challenges which would surely inspire more to appear. Right now the UFO Challenge is kind of lonely. I'd like to see a dozen ongoing Challenges, something for everyone... which would also bring new leaders forward... to inspire us all.

    TaliaRose asked for questions, so I don't think there is anything wrong with giving suggestions for small changes. I think that if she disapproves she will tell us!

    I meant when you look at someone's beautiful work and 12 people have already said how great it is, I'd like to just click "Like" so the poster would know it'd been seen and appreciated.
