WHOSE panties are in a bunch about CH?? I use it if I see something of current use or interest in the latest posts feed. Haven’t used it to ask anything of importance in a long time for the reasons you list.
I feel like they contacted me directly and told me I had to change my password, with their new requirements (capitals, exclamation marks, that kind of thing). I did as they told me and haven’t had a blip since. For what it’s worth!
Well @VikingKaj, is bet it took you longer to put that post together than I spend in any day visiting CH (unless I find something to respond to. I never really used it for much local stuff because I live in an area adjacent to Los Angeles that has never merited its own board there, here or on FTC, so (even tho we have 3.5 million people here) we’re looked down on in terms of food interest. I tend to follow the Trader Joe’s product topic there, which is pretty active.
By the way, I recall someone here saying they couldn’t figure out how to reply directly to a specific post vs. to the topic in general. Don’t recall if it was you but here’s a quick tutorial: there are TWO reply arrows at the bottom of thread. One at the end of the last post in the thread and a larger one (in a blue box) at the lower left. The one in the box replies to the thread in general, the other one to a specific post in the thread (each post has its own).
Holy Crap!! I never knew that, it will save me a ton of time, because I manually scroll to the top of each topic when I want to make a general reply in a long post. I didn’t know the blue reply on the bottom of the page did that for me!! Nice!!! Thank you!
