    Short, snappy testimonials required! Win a copy of Bo &

    Hi all,

    I want to add a panel somewhere on the site that shows member testimonials (mini-reviews) to unregistered visitors. That way we can hopefully attract even more amazing members!

    So what is required is short, catchy testimonials, less than 7-8 words in length which will grab a vistor's attention.

    After we've collected some I'll choose one participating member at random, and that member will get a copy of my children's book about gardening, Bo and Blu In The Garden :stew1:

    You can submit more than one if you'd like as I'll only choose from unique members, not unique testimonials (i.e. it won't influence the random draw).

    Think what you would have liked to have read if you just found GardenStew :) Thanks and good luck!

    We put the "fun" in "dysfunctional"?

    No, of course not, but I couldn't help myself. :oops:

    I think I'll go muck out and boil my brains. Great idea, Frank!

    By the way, is this where you want us to put our testimonials?

    Haha Droopy :D Yes, you can place them here.

    And just to clarify, it's not so much a tagline I'm looking for, but more like a mini-review. For example, if I was to review YouTube I could write:

    - "I love this website!"
    - "The website is indispensable to me."
    - "Fun, engaging and entertaining."

    :)
