cleaning old posts
« on: September 17, 2009, 10:12:50 am »
I have just been looking through the 'recipe tweaks' thread to find corrections etc for my EDC cookbook.  And I have a suggestion that I hope can be looked at positively and not as a complaint.

Some of the threads are getting a little dated and Huge!  I was wondering if they can be "cleaned" after they get a little stale.  Just thinking that as this forum gets older and bigger and better, it is going to get harder to find the "recipe tweaks" amongst the other "stale" comments which are no longer relevant.

Just to be clear, I am loving this forum and finding it very inspiring.  But also time consuming as I trawl through threads trying to find what I'm looking for.

When I am searching for tips for a particular recipe I do a general search for that recipe and then scroll down until I find a comment in the tweak thread.  It saves going through the whole tweaking list.

I think cleaning up that section would be quite difficult.  I guess ideally that section would have it's own heading, individual posts and an index, but that would be such a huge job - too huge.  :)

Hi Cathy,
It's a great idea - I often think that when I go to print a recipe but end up with 5 pages of postings of which many are irrelevant but it's a huge task! Perhaps some people would be able to delete their own comments if they weren't really relevant or benficial to the reader??

Funny ILB, I thought the same thing (still a mammoth task though for those of us who have been around for a while :-)) :-)))
I have learnt how to just print out the recipe now though and not get pages and pages of comments thanks to the odd computer lesson held on this forum ;) ;)

I read this wrong and it made me giggle.

Quite often, the threads do go wildly OT and are no longer relevant, but it's all part of us getting to know each other I reckon.

Perhaps we could start a Tweaking list #2... ?

Well, I've done my homework for the night.  Deleted at least 25 postings from this subject - it does come off your total too by the way.

Dearest Members,

Great point raised and at the correct time. I cannot say much at this point but there will be some changes next month, which will make our lives easier. I can't wait to officially break the news. Stay tuned

MM

I don't mind changes but am a bit worried things may get too complicated for some of us oldies. Sort of looking forward to it but hoping I don't find it too daunting.  I know my way around this forum like the back of my hand, hope it will be as easy MM.

Thank you so much for your replies.  I was very nervous posting this suggestion as I was afraid it would come across wrong!

Never be afraid to make comments Cathy - we don't bite ;D ;D ;D  Some of us may not agree with everything everyone says but that's life - we are all allowed to have an opinion and express it in the proper manner which you certainly did.

Oh dear, my mind is totally warped. My initial thought on seeing "cleaning old posts" was wondering what did a TMX have in common with cleaning old fence posts. I'm way too comfortable on this site, I'm sure I need to get out more and not play with my TMX so much. Perhaps I'm just 'over the hill'

i'm more than happy to start new tweaking lists, or even the what areyou cooking thread, i've just always assumed everyone wanted them long or they would have said otherwise LOL i'm not used to such long threads!
