2 fruitful years of FarmNest.com! (now crossed 3!)

#1

[color=navy]As FarmNest.com completes 2 fruitful years, we would like to take this opportunity to thank the FarmNest community.

Whether it is some sound advice or words of encouragement to a newbie, an offer to provide the spare seed material free to a fellow farmer or lending one’s equipment to a neighbour, FarmNest is proud to be an open facilitator to the farming community. The members’ meets in Bangalore and Hyderabad have been fun and we have personally learnt much from the online and offline discussions.

The entry into the third year is marked by a little spicing up of the site look and some enhancements to the attachments’ display in posts. Do let us know on this topic what you think of the changes, even if you believe your eyes hurt. Stay tuned to a farm photo contest and a new way to reward consultants for advice provided on the forum.

Do tell us your ideas on what we can do differently and better that helps the farming community!

Cheers,
Chandra [/color]

[/quote] Farm photo contest? Good, I wants to see more photos of our farmers field/orchard photos.
Reward for consultancy? Really unique idea which may be first time in its kind in Forums like this.

Thanks everyone.

@Mohammed.Muneeb
Thanks for offering to help. We will reach out to some of you for some help in the near future.
brijesh helps with the forum moderation and has been a great support; as we see increasing posts we will need more hands for sure.

Great suggestion on product reviews. We can add a section and see if we have some reviews coming.
Edit: now created

Hi Chandra

Do you plan to merge ‘thank you’ and ‘reputation’ features? They serve the same function.

#18

You caught me in the middle of the transition!
No more adding reputation; the old reputation values will be left to display for a while though. Just thanks now :slight_smile:

#19

Great. That’s a big improvement. I suspect that a lot of people didn’t use “add reputation” because they didn’t know what it was for. That will change now. “Thank you” is self-explanatory.

#20

Exactly!
Planning on a way to use the thanks for preferential treatment on ads - stay tuned.
