Hello Awesome People Who Know VegWeb Best!

As I'm getting to know the site and learning as much as I can, I thought I'd take a moment to get opinions on any changes you'd like to see. What do you like? Love? Want to throw out a window? Anything and everything! It's obvious the community is active and vibrant and so I KNOW you have some opinions! Let's hear 'em!

If you're feeling shy or don't want to post in a thread, feel free to email me at 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')).

Thanks!!

So much drama! At least everyone here is cool about the trolling.

I tenth (?) the search ingredients feature. I mean, when I have extra tomatoes, I can go to the tomato section, but there are soups and salads and a million other things I miss out on.

As far as Roll Call requirements go... shouldn't all that info be on our profiles? (If we wish to display them and write a little bit?)

And I don't know where you'd put this, but if there was an end-all-question-answering link in recipes for egg replacers, that would save SO many posts. Many people new to vegan baking have no idea about what replacer to use. Or how to do it properly.

i would like to be able to review/comment on recipes in the "new submissions" holding tank. we can add pics to them (i believe) but we can't leave comments. i always see things i want to make and then i hold off because i can't comment.

I'm not gonna sift back through this to find something to quote -- but wrt the "roll call" thread -- it's too damn long. If you want people to introduce themselves maybe have a subforum for that so if someone starts posting and you're like "who the heck is this guy" you can glance in that forum and see if they've said anything. Also gives people more of an opportunity to personally welcome new folks, imo. When threads get too long they just get chaotic and intimidating.

I think it would be a good idea to give a few of us the responsibility to help keep the site in order.  You know, in case some jerk with a two year old chip on his shoulder decides to come back and make problems, we can modify his childish posts and stuff like that.  Banning could be left up to the administrator if you like, but I'm sure we would be more than willing to help with this too if the situation warrants it.

Thanks, Rabidchild...excellent idea...the threads definitely get overwhelming for me too and it would be nice to access the info easily.

Thanks, Charbot. This is something we're considering...

Interesting idea. I'm a member of another forum where a "welcome caroleena2" thread would be automatically posted under the new person forum when I joined. I'm not particularly saying that admins need to be the ones to create the threads (esp. since so many VWers just create logons to review recipes), but that organization is really nice. Sure the threads are often pretty short, but that is okay.

CK beat me to the suggestion about blocking IP addresses.

Ditto. This is ridiculous.

While I do like the new quick reply, I'm not a fan of the new quoting method.  The quoted posts keep getting fubared.

Yeah, it puts the cursor in the middle of the quotes, so many are seeing their comments end up a part of someone else's.

Even if someone doesn't have a profile, I'd still like to find them with the profile search.  If the screen came up with just their name it'd be fine because we'd still have a link to any posts they might have made.  The way it works now is if a user doesn't have a profile, (s)he doesn't show up in a profile search.

I have noticed two thing's that I think would be beneficial:

1) I don't see an edit button...it would be nice to be able to edit your own post after you have posted it.

2) It would be nice to have a next new post button so you don't have to scroll down the page

I understand that I am new and if these are abilities we already have ..well. then I'm an idiot.

we have both! one is the little paper and pencil by your posts (click on it to edit)
two is the <<previous    next>> button on the top right

thanks Hespedal! That is a great help.

I read through the entire thread to see if anyone else had made this suggestion! I just was looking through recipes, and kept finding ones that were really badly written--bad grammar, spelling, punctuation. It kind of puts me off of trying them, and I think it does others too, since there are typically not many reviews. Hence--why are the recipes approved?

I know this makes me sound like a snob, and I also know my own spelling leaves something to be desired at times (see my comma splice?), but...it would be nice.

i think it would be good to remove "FAIL" recipes, i.e. ones that are a list of things without measures and poor instructions, i.e. "boil noodles and add everything else to taste." it would also be cool to be able to edit recipes that are put together poorly. i read the TOS and submission means vw owns it, so we can mess stuff up all we want.

i would also like to see recipe names changed so that they reflect what it is. i'm tired of all these "clever" names that don't say squat about what it is. even if we did a kind of thing that would be cool.

example: Awesome carrot cake ----> cool
secret suprize awesome n00b treat ---> what? edit:

i think it would be AWESOME to find a system to put the recipes in that allowed for better searches. i remember when y moved to this system we have now and a bunch of us volunteered to classify recipes in it. awesome! but the moral is, if it came to the fact that stuff needed individual review work, there are a lot of us who would gladly do some monkey work.
