Thanks!!

I like the idea of having the option to pick more than one category for a recipe (or maybe a 'cross reference'?). IE: I have a HUGE head of cabbage, and looking for recipes to use it, I go to the 'cabbage' section, yet can still miss TONS of recipes that even have cabbage in the title because they are in different sections (cabbage soup in 'soups', cabbage salad in 'salads', etc).

yes, being able to list more categories would definitely be a plus.  like maybe "check all that apply" or something?  i've had trouble choosing between equally qualifying categories before.

maybe i way to rank difficulty of the recipe?  like, "easy"/"beginner", "advanced", etc.

i actually like that we don't have a rating system like that - i think that it scares some people off from trying something new they might not have tried otherwise.  im pretty sure that by reading the recipes' directions people can figure out if it's a recipe they can handle/want to attempt.

you know what?  you're right.

thanks!

(and btw - don't you wish you could fix yr typo that i quoted 2x now? ..  annoying isnt it?)

oh my gosh, i just now realized it!  it says "i" instead of "a".

haha.

thanks for making me realize i should feel more self-conscious!

so, yes... i second that vote to be able to edit my quoted typos!  haha!

i don't know if this has been fixed or not, but i've lost SO MANY recipes on here.  i would spend so long typing them out and then when i submitted them i got a message saying it would show up eventually after being reviewed.  then it just goes away forever... probably in the same land that steals all of my left socks.

i have mostly given up on submitting recipes.

This! This happened to me on all the recipes I've tried to submit.

Everyone - thank you so much for the suggestions, they're all going up on a board and we're going to do our best to make everything you want happen while still maintaining the integrity of the site! Of course, I'll be checking back with you all to see what you think and you can email me at anytime, eval(unescape('%64%6f%63%75%6d%65%6e%74%2e%77%72%69%74%65%28%27%3c%61%20%68%72%65%66%3d%22%6d%61%69%6c%74%6f%3a%6c%61%75%72%61%40%76%65%67%77%65%62%2e%63%6f%6d%22%3e%6c%61%75%72%61%40%76%65%67%77%65%62%2e%63%6f%6d%3c%2f%61%3e%27%29%3b')).

rainbowdust919 and theodamus...we have a large backlog of recipes that need to be posted and more and more are going up lately. In fact, I remember posting two from theodamus yesterday! check out the new recipe queue at http://vegweb.com/index.php?board=762.0 and see if yours are in line! And let me know, eval(unescape('%64%6f%63%75%6d%65%6e%74%2e%77%72%69%74%65%28%27%3c%61%20%68%72%65%66%3d%22%6d%61%69%6c%74%6f%3a%6c%61%75%72%61%40%76%65%67%77%65%62%2e%63%6f%6d%22%3e%6c%61%75%72%61%40%76%65%67%77%65%62%2e%63%6f%6d%3c%2f%61%3e%27%29%3b')). In the future we're going to get recipes up in a very timely manner so hopefully this won't be a problem!

For now, as far as changing your recipes is concerned, if you notice typos or just want to make an improvement, send me the revised review text and a link to the original review and I'll fix it for you!

I second an ignore feature.

I can see where an "ignore user" button would be helpful at times.

but how would it work?  just block people from sending messages?  i don't think it work so much on the public boards.  you would be so lost missing out on bits of conversations.

on behalf of SOG... just came across this:

Does any one else think there should be a "search recipes by ingredient" option here? I doooo. It would definitely solve the problem of "I have an abundance of , what should I do with it?" and such.

This is what I thought/said, too.

CK! What is with you?! Do you really think people don't like you/want to ignore you? That's nonsense!

Thanks Webmistress Laura!

Ooh I have another one...it would be great if we could click on people's names in chat to see their profiles, because it's really hard and hassely to find links to their profiles elsewhere to check who you're talking to if they aren't a forum poster.

omg YES!

that is one i have really wanted. back when i was a regular chatter and people would come into chat i felt SUPER uncomfortable chatting it up if i had no idea who they were, so i would have to open a new window and search for them. pain in the ass.

Yeah, I don't really understand what that would look like, and it could end up being hurtful.  I mean, yeah, sometimes there are posts I'd rather ignore, so I just ignore them.

Along the lines of keeping the unread posts and recipes seperate. I dont know if anyone has said something like this yet, but on the side it'd be cool if there was an "New/Updated Recipes" link to go to that, because i do like looking through them from time to time.

And if the "Adult" section of the forum is started, make it an option for people to choose to not include the updates of said forum in the unread posts section maybe?

Ahhhh, i love that you're taking suggestions  ;)b It makes me glad that we still have some one that cares about us in charge! (to be honest for a second i thought it was going to be taken over and changed for the worse, i saw this though and some other posts by you Laura and i'm glad to you have you in charge)

btw - i was kidding about wanting to be able to change our typos in when people quote us.  i don't think we should be able to for other reasons...

I would absolutely love it if there was a "spell check" option in the blogs! I am such a terrible speller and if I want my blogs to be at all readable I have to compose on word and copy/paste in which leads to a whole new series of formatting issues...*sigh* all I need is spell check.

But please don't do anything to the blogs that could cause all of them to vanish--I don't have those files backed up!! *ahhhh* the last year and a half of my live would be gone--oh nooooos! (I know...you would think I would save the word documents of them...but I don't...maybe I should go copy them out...)

Thank you!

I want to be able to search for a recipe in my own box. There are times when I know I have bookmarked a recipe, but end up having to search the whole site for it instead of just mine.

capture, you should use firefox. everything is automatically spell checked as it's typed out. it saves me.

i agree completely. kmk, i *think* you might have been here last time we implemented the ignore feature. it was so messed up because people would get confused/angry or realize there was something "good" (aka a fight) going on and un-ignore people. i think this all comes down to just being mature adults and choosing to ignore the things that we know are pointless/going to get us into a rage/cause us to bait/flame/etc.
