VegWeb cooking challenge idea

This is my idea:  What if every week we nominate one person--say AC, KMC, Tweety, whomever to be the VW Czar of the week.

The VW Czar chooses five recipes from the VegWeb site--they can be recipes that person has submitted, favorite recipes that person has tried and really liked and thinks should receive more attention (i.e., hidden gems), or recipes that sound absurd, funny or possibly disgusting and want to find out for sure.  So then everyone participatng in the challenge has to ty some number of them -- say two -- and submit official reviews on the site.

Would anyone be interested in doing this?

That would be cool.  Shamefully, I don't use VW for recipes, but rather my cookbooks.  If I participated, I probably wouldn't make but maybe one a week out of the five, but that would be a challenge to me.  I'm down with that.

The issue right now, as evidenced by how long it took someone to answer your post is that so many members are staying away because of the problem with viruses, malaware, etc.  Maybe when the new site goes up they'll come back and we can do the challenge then.

Yeah, I think it's a cute idea too. I definitely don't make enough vegweb recipes, and it's a bit ironic that our cooking challenges have often surrounded cookbooks and not vegweb itself!

Also, I think I'd have fun trolling everyone with weird recipes if I had a czar week. Chocolate mashed potatoes, everybody!

(probably not on vegweb, but you get the idea)

I used to cook from the more and found that some were very good and some were meh, but it was hard to tell from the reviews.  I think many people don't like leaving negative reviews of personal contributions.

Also, there are some very overlooked gems on this site so it would be a way to highlight them.

Also, for the egocentric recipe Czar, it would be a way to get people to try the recipes that you have posted.
