    Hi all,

    I've just added a new feature that I had been working on for quite some time. I saw how much you all loved using the Seeds feature and thought I would advance on that by introducing an extra way to reward members for posting great info/stories/photos. So now we have Patches! [​IMG]

    I've prepared some help that you can read here:
    What are Patches?

    I will soon be awarding you all with Patches that you have earned so far. I've just awarded Patches for the number of years you have been a member of GardenStew, hope you all got those ok! To follow will be Patches for number of posts, number of blog entries, number of plant edits and number of Seeds :)

    I really hope this will be a feature that you will love using and feel nice when you receive a Patch. If you are having problems using this new feature or have spotted any errors please let me know below.

    As always thank you for being a GardenStew member and enjoy sending Patches!

    GardenStew becomes better and better! The patches idea is wonderful--I've often wanted to give someone more than a seed for a helpful post, and now a patch will fill that need.
    Frank, you are the best, the very best! I'll give you a patch for maintaining and improving a great website for us all!

    Frank, you are always thinking of clever ways to make the site more enjoyable and the patches fit the bill. Thank you for making GardenStew our home away from home.

    Great idea Frank. I have said a few times, "I wish I could give you two seeds" when I saw a great post/idea. This is great. Thanks!
