I have a great idea I want to share.

Click on the Community tab at the top, then click on Gardening News. It's the first item. Then at the top of the page you'll see a place where you can submit an item. Be warned that we accept very few submissions there... If we don't publish it we'll let you know and you can take what you wrote and put it in the forums.

Shady, this site used to have a member idea feature, but for reasons unclear to me that just went away. It was a daily feature and was kind of front and center when I opened the site. I really miss that - in addition to getting random tidbits, it also gave me a sense of community, as in 'oh great here's another idea from Suzie'. But, that's water under the bridge and out to sea. And, as the owner states above, they apparently don't accept/publish very many member ideas anymore, nor would I know where they would even be published. Maybe in the newsletter? Or the Learning Library? I rarely look at either. I think there is somewhere to post ideas in one of the forums, but I have no clue where that might be found. Perhaps your best bet would be to post your idea in whatever forum best represents the subject matter - although that will only get moderate traffic of folks who actively follow a given forum. Good luck.

@bonehead My idea was published. Ideas are still.there, only changed. They are a Headliner but you gotta have it loaded on your page. Go to The Main Menu>Community>Garden News to see the daily(?) News.

Thanks. I checked it out. Not as interested in coloring pages or book reviews, so I'll pass on adding it to my regular feed. Nice idea re plumbing tool, though.
