NEW Feature! Grow Questions

Hi there, Growers!

GrowDiaries presents a NEW problem solution feature!  We have received numerous requests asking for some kind of an attribute that would help Growers with the problems they go through while growing their beautiful plants. Let's be real, we all needed this feature! To help you get more attention to the problems you are experiencing while growing and reporting on GD, we decided to direct all our forces to developing Grow Questions this month! Our platform grows, our community grows, cannabis awareness grows, and it's amazing that we are all contributing to this cause! Today GrowDiaries becomes an educational space!

We hope the new Grow Questions feature will be of great help to you!

It's very simple to use!

Basically you have 4 questions a month available. You can ask ONE question a month in one of your Diaries.  Only ONE question can have a status of an 'active question', meaning that till the problem is resolved you cannot ask more questions. Growers of the community will try to help you resolve your issues in order to earn special reward points. These points will become a new criteria for winning 'Grower of the Month' competition.

To ask a Grow Question:

  1. Go to your Diary
  2. Click on the week that you started experiencing a problem on
  3. Hit 'Ask a Grow Question'
  4. Select what type of problem you are experiencing
  5. Smoke one and wait for the community to bring your plant back to a healthy life

IMPORTANT When you find a solution to your problem, you will need to award that Grower who helped you resolve it with a reward point.

Easy to use, yet so important for the community! How does it sound to you, Family? Let's test Grow Questions?

Let us know what you think in the comments below! Any feedback is extremely appreciated! We always try to do our best for you!

Peace GD

Really like the new feature! How will we be notified about other users questions? Will we need to be following the user/GD and then there will be an active question notification? Or will we need to open the GD and go to the week the question was posted? I see great potential in this, but ensuring that it is user friendly is important too! Keep up the good work @GrowDiaries ๐Ÿ‘Š

It's hard to help people , if you don't know they need help, I think this is a good idea , maybe it could put a red flag up or something to shows they need help,maybe turn the diary colour red , anything to make it stand out ,

@BigDaddyK, this was exactly my point , if new growers know they have an issue but don't know how to ask a question , attach a pic , tag and flag it and that way someone could lend advice

Didn't understand.. is it necessary? I am seeing that people help each other already, and its free to ask help (no limit).. scared that it will start another problem, if it rewarded with score..but anyway thanks to GD, for their effort to make this platform better everyday..

This is a change for the better I believe. Been here only for a week but I am already pissed off with "like Hunters", they make comment sections in every diary unreadable... Another way of rewarding people who have actually something to say and not just hunting for more likes, would be to reward comments that get most likes in one month. Or only count likes from top 5 most liked comments :). That would improve quality and not quantity, since spamming would not be rewarded anymore.

@SKELETOR, the good ol โ€œlike huntersโ€ they put the same generic comment on all diaries! Weโ€™ve alllll seen em! Beautifully put skels.

It makes perfect sense to me. This way the trolls won't be winning grower of the month. Someone that actually put in effort might win. Nice job GD.

I understand that, problem is most of the users in this site giving likes to each other pointlessly.. "great harvest bro!" Or "nice start" or "well done" can get like easily.. and its not worth it.. People get used to give like every comment on these days.. so what i try to explain is, if we want to change it, we need to judge the comments like is it worth to give like or not.. I think this is our responsibility..

@420_liquidsun, Totaly agree, strangely this happens similarly in other places too. Tough i don t see it as a bad thing, the strange thing in my opinion is seen some growers with this comments and getting 8 likes for it... Is just not organic...

Very cool feature! I'm already scared of people finding a way to abuse this, but it seems like a very well thought mechanic.

@Yogsothoth, i hear you. On the forums it's all about who knows more for how much longer etc. Let's keep it copacetic.

Very nice Feature, it could help a lot of people ! I really appreciate all the work you have done to make this place better ๐Ÿ˜ The number of questions is a bit limited but it's a very good start to try this system Good job GD

I think it's a great idea, especially for the beginner grower that may need this. I think to find out if someone has a question on their diary, you have to go on their diary to see? Lol I don't think it needs a new category โœŒ๏ธ๐Ÿบ

@biggreens420, haha of course there is ๐Ÿ˜‚ to be fair it's probably better, more so for the beginner so they can go on it to find similar problems others are having, to save them from wasting a question on something already asked by another grower ๐Ÿ‘ good stuff @GrowDiaries โœŒ๏ธ๐Ÿบ

Having problems selecting an answer to one of my questions. I select the answer I like most (which is a hard decision, because all answers were good/helpful), I then get a 'Saved' message on screen. But then when I check the diary again the question is still open without any answer selected. Same occurs on my Mac and iPhone (Safari browser on both, macOS 10.13.3 & iOS 11.3). Also, maybe there should be an option to rank answers when there are multiple helpful answers given. Just a thought.

I like reading many different diaries and like to let the grower know that someone is watching and cares about the grower continuing to post. I'm curious, what do you look for in a comment? I would love "like hunters" to stop by and let me know they are reading my posts and are interested in my grow. I may be guilty of looking like a like hunter, but honestly I don't comment to receive likes I do it to give that other grower that awesome little green mark on the bell and hopefully make their day just a little bit brighter.

@JUNGLE_B4RNS, Hi bro!!!! Yess I know! So Jamaican people use to say bomboclat in its slang like positive surprise expression...anyway with this release GD will keep away some (fucking) devil on portal ;) ๐Ÿ˜˜kisses
JUNGLE_B4RNS

@Mr_Di, this expression is to keep to evil away technically. It comes from Peter Tosh, while he was a kid he was running in a field when he got caught at the face by a barbewire, he spent several days semiconscious, when he woke up he shouted Bombaclaat and said he was fighting against devils and it was the devil who putted that barbewire in front of his way.

I think this is an awesome idea , especially for total 'newbies' , yeah there's always going to be some arsehole who will try and manipulate these type of formulas but in the bigger picture it makes them have to actually do more work or , see if their knowledge is really what they make out , especially if there is a rating system , these 'spammers' may not be as quick just to throw in a comment for a like in order to climb the table , I'm fairly new and I've clicked to this already lol.... anyway , back to the positive elements here and I think this would hit the nail on the head ... would it be possible to not only ask a question but to attach a couple of pics ? .. may sound daft but as a total newbie , you may not even know the questions you need to ask ex , leaves could be drooping and have nute burn but as a newbie , they wouldn't even know what nute burn would be so if you could visually see some form of abnormalities bit don't know how to put it into words before the problems get worse , you could simply upload a pic with a tag like * doesn't feel or look right , could anyone lend advice* ... I've been that newbie so i really think would work great haha .... GD pulling out all the stops again here in order to keep us the growers happy :)
