HO in Wikipedia

Someone in another forum noticed that Hungry Onion doesn’t have a Wikipedia page. I don’t feel confident enough to write one myself. Can anyone else here create it (and add it to the index of food website pages at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_websites_about_food_and_drink)?


With a note as to WHY it was started…the beginning of the end of CH as so many knew it.

In fact, this came up because I pointed someone on that forum to HO, saying that sck started the site after Chowhound’s crash and burn in 2015. It turns out there’s no mention of 2015 and the CBS Media crash-and-burn in the Chowhound Wiki page. Then I looked for our page.

Whoever creates our page can probably reference Luke Tsai’s East Bay Express article, at

https://eastbayexpress.com/chowhound-in-crisis-an-unpopular-redesign-prompts-longtime-users-to-leave-the-food-discussion-website-2-1/ .

It does mention Hungry Onion.


Why does that not surprise me?

Media mentions and links would certainly substantiate that we are notable. I thought we had some compiled somewhere.

We were referenced in the paywalled boston globe article about chowhounds fall and HO’s creation

Here’s one that comes to mind: https://web.archive.org/web/20160426022308/https://insidescoopsf.sfgate.com/blog/2016/04/25/where-to-find-regional-chinese-food-in-the-bay-area/

And a more recent one by @theluketsai about the more recent Chowhound closing

And a mention of HO in a story involving @klyeoh


This is reminding me of an organization I belong to where everyone is reticent about being the “committee chair” but offers suggestions.

Speaking of suggestions…


This starts with what @hyperbowler says about being"notable" with regard to media presence. I didn’t know that!

Not reticent; more like hesitant, reluctant, leery.

Lots of voices? Few (if any) hands raised for action items? Been there.

And now it’s Zoom reactions, or lack there of.
