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.

Thanks Judy.  Appreciate it.

I continue to be impressed by how nice & friendly everyone is on this forum.  When visiting other forums, you often see a narky comment here & there (& sometimes everywhere) and 'missing' comments that have clearly been moderated due to their inappropriate content.  

I have yet to come across anything like that on this forum.  Even though you do see clearly different viewpoints in various threads there is never any hint of rudeness.

Can't wait to see the changes that MM is hinting at.

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.

Good idea - just may need some extra moderators.

It would be good to make sure all tweaks are also sent to TMX OZ or TMX UK and hopefully they follow up

It would help if anybody identifies "stale" posts then they could hit the "report" buttton to tell the moderators that the posts are out of date

So if we just press the "report" button, will that highlight the thread for moderators to "clean"?

I've just sent a test through regarding the "two recipe requests" thread.  Now this is fixed, it might not be necessary.

cathy, it emails all the mods. then we all ignore it hoping someone else will sort it.
haha, just joking! whoever is on first will fix it if it's something we know is ok, otherwise we leave it for MM if we're not sure if he'd want it done or not.

Yeah - as long as there are moderators !!!!  - what happens is your message results in some poor sucker receiving the following:

The following post, "Re: Two recipe request forums?" by Ayla has been reported by cathybenson79 on a board you moderate: http://www.forumthermomix.com/index.php?topic=798.msg7272#msg7272 The reporter has made the following comment:stale thread test Regards,The Forum Thermomix Team.

What she said - we ignore all the annoying messages from peple we don't like - but that's not YOU  ;) ;D :-*

it's a good idea cathy! :) but not one i want to do, sorry. i can't even keep up with posting on threads and keeping the recipe indexes up to date at the moment lol

No guts no glory brazen - what do you mean you can't keep up ?  don't worry about root canals and pain - just do it

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.  :) 

Wouldn't it be great if every recipe had a topic and any tweaks were just listed under that thread?

Yes, I wish the tweaks were under the recipe.  I keep finding recipes to try, then accidentally find their improvements or changes - usually after I've tried them and they weren't quite right.

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??
Sorry ILB - the majority of my posts are probably not relevant - but I'm having fun at others' expense - maybe we should find a different system to record "tweaks"  :-*
