How about some site updates to go with that fancy new contest?
First off, in case you haven’t seen the green banner on the site, the discussion topic or all of our tweets and facebook updates :), we’re running a contest! We’re giving away the ultimate holiday tea bundle, worth over $825 and featuring the beautifully-designed Sorapot by our friend Joey Roth. Head on over to the contest page to see all the prizes and details. We’ll pick one lucky winner shortly after the contest ends on 8PM this Friday, December 18.
Our second gift to you: site updates! Along with the usual bug fixes, we’ve added the following, based on some of our most common requests:
Now you can delete comments from your own tasting notes (via the individual note’s page), or delete your own comments from other peoples’ tasting notes.
If you need to edit a comment, just write a revised comment and delete the old one :)

More Control over Email Notifications
The "Email me…" section on your Account page now has a few extra checkboxes to let you specify which things you want to get emailed about.
We disabled some of the less-important ones by default since we ourselves are overloaded with messages already, but if you want ‘em, you got ‘em!
Your feedback is appreciated, and your Steepster Overlords wish you a safe, warm and happy holidays!
