What happened to the recipe sub-forum?  I appreciate the recipes as much as anyone else, but this just buries the rest of the threads in this forum. 

 

I asked this question before without an answer.  What's up Dru?

I had a question and suggestion regarding a recent change on the boards.  I didn't want to put it in the Shoutbox, as things get pushed down very quickly there.

 

Recently, the General Discussion forum has been flooded with recipe threads.  I am all in favor of the recipe threads, as it seems many of us are.  My only issue is that other non-recipe threads in the GD forum are pushed way down and are hard to find. 

 

There used to be a Recipe sub-Forum, that has gone away.  Can we please get that forum reinstated?  It seems to make sense to keep all the recipes together and the rest separate.  I don't know who to petition, Drucifer or Dan.

 

Thoughts?

can someone please move this thread away from the recipes? How am I supposed to see recipes, if there are other threads in the way?

I think Dan would be my first choice since Dru is the author of this rash of recipes, but if that doesn't work try Julia Childs or Graham Kerr.

Wasn't the point to share recipes?  I know that the recipes that I posted were mine and actually worked, because I made them.    51 recipes in the past two weeks.....all (?) pulled off an online site and never tested (?) seriously.

agreed, think there should be a separate sub forum + posted recipes should be of the ilk of "I've made" and then let us know how it came out or "I'm going to make" and people who've made similar can comment/give tips.

While I appreciate the feedback as to particular recipes, I would like to get the sub-forum idea addressed if that is OK.

 

The General Discussion forum used to have multiple sub-forums, like Recipes, or Science/Technology.  With it all lumped together under GD, threads get lost so fast.  I would really like to see similar topics lumped together, like it used to be.

 

I realize that all threads are not for all people.  Personally, I just glance at the recipes.  I miss the Sci/Tech sub-forum, which I found interesting.  If we had sub-forums again, the GD forum would not be the mish-mash that it has become.

 

After some other members weigh in, who do we ask about this?  Would that be Drucifer or Dan or who?

 

Also. apologies if it seemed like I cut off the recipe discussion, wasn't my intention.  I just didn't want the initial request to get lost.  Perhaps we can "sticky" this thread for all member generated suggestions?

Damnit, this illustrates my point.  I thought I was replying to the other thread.

I incorrectly posted this in the wrong thread, belongs here...

You are assuming that I would know how to do that.

Beside the recipes and the Sci-Tech sub-forms,  one could be added for travel....mjjm, abat, mjjm's welcome wagon effort's,  the travails of getting to midtown from LaGuardia etc.
