SUGGESTIONS FOR THE NEW SITE

When we move over to vBulletin we will eventually have the opportunity make some changes to the site like new forums and categories and things like that. A lot of people have been posting suggestions so i thought it might be beneficially to start this topic so that we can keep all the suggestions in one place. that way when the time comes to implement new ideas we can just refer to this post and have everything in one place. Please feel free to post your ideas here :)

Some of the suggestions so far have been:

1. A separate forum for just recipes (this might work as sub categories in vBulletin).

2. A forum for places to eat - where we recommend places in our area or maybe a town or two away. We can describe the atmosphere and give a general idea of the price range.

3. A terms and techniques forum.

4. A recipe box.

Perhaps you´ll find some ideas at the german version from discusscooking like the "chefkoch.de" (chiefcook) :roll: :roll:

There are so many categories for everyone. Also a Recipe-archive from now 29.000 recipes from all members and also sponsoring concerns

I'd like to second Rainee's idea. Not sure what to call the forum tho. "Outdoor Cooking?" :?

I'd say Iron Chef, Charc, but that's been taken already I think.

I would love to see an easier way to post pictures and I'm sure a lot of others on this site would too!! We can call it "Posting pictures for dummies..."

What's vbullein stand for? Thanks in advance.

IMHO, keep it simple, please...if it's not broken don't fix it. Realize it must have taken a great deal of time & effort in revamping this site. Thank you!!! However, I was happy without all the added bells & whistles. IMO, sometimes less is more. Guess I'll get used to it, in time. Noticed too, we must click on a link to see a post in its entirety. Preferred the pic posted instead, as before (as Marge said, more user friendly). Also getting popups on right of screen, as I think norg mentioned.
Still great to be here & see all the dc folks.
