I went into 'my settings' just now in an endless and hopeless attempt to get the email notifications and found that I have apparently reviewed over 1500 plants!

I have never reviewed a plant in my life! These are not even plants that I have seen before; does anyone know what is going on?


artjak it has been like that since I joined the forum I've never reviewed a plant but seem to have done loads    no idea why it happens and hopefully all these "strange things " will be corrected when the site gets revamped.


p.s Do wonder if you mention a plant name or look at a post with that plant name anywhere on the forum it registers somewhere  Beyond my understanding


Art I don't bother with email notifications..I just check my PM's and look at posts I've added to. Email notif's annoy me I spend ages deleting them when I've forgotten to unclick the box at the bottom of the thread.

I think it's the same for everyone.....I too have apparently "reviewed" all sorts of plants.

Just hope no one holds me to what I have supposedly either endorsed or called rubbish



I wonder if they're put there for us to review. If you look at them there's a space for us to do so. Perhaps I'll do a few.

Maybe I can't be a....d though

That's the trouble with the world today...........sheer apathy on our behalf


Nut, I have never even heard of most of these plants I excavated further to see what I had 'said' and of course I have said nothing

KEF, is the site being revamped soon?


Sorry about the apathy Philippa.

How bizarre! I appear to have reviewed over 1500 plants too, including some I've never heard of.

I can only see ten of my 1518 reviewed plants. The only plant I've got in that list is Verbena bona and it's been reviewed to death.

Perhaps I'll buy some pokeweed just so I can review it...

I have sent a message to the web team asking what is going on. Suggest others do the same.


I think my apathy is too well established for that GM.

Those reviews have been there for at least the 2 years I've been around.


I've reviewed 1518 plants too Victoria,what a strange coincidence 


Once upon a time it worked, hasn't for ages. I think we've all reviewed the same number.



Art I think a re-vamp is going to happen following the survey that we were asked to complete.


Art - my email notifications were working fine til about a week ago, and then they stopped altogether again, so don't think its anything to do with your settings.  I am a fan of the "followed threads" button in their absence

I had all those reviews as soon as I joined GW, have always thought it rather strange. Its probably the same list on everybodies 


I didn't understand it either - glad it's not just me 

I'm now suffering from severe RSI from all my plant reviews.  Can I sue GW?
