No one types it in. When your "score" drops below -30 the name changes to quack-quack. I believe it is a setting in the software.

I too noticed something was out of kilter and at first I thought it might have just been an optical illusion. So, I grabbed an image of the Roadfood.com logo and examined it in Photoshop. The upper left, upper right and lower right are all in line with each other. The hole out of place is the lower left hole. It is too high and too far to the left. You only need to fix one hole.


You guys are sharp!  I actually added those holes myself, and thought they were close enough that nobody else would notice.  My graphic artist is going to send me a cleaned up version next week along with another very, very minor change.  Boy, you can't let anything slip by you people!

Ah, but if you move only the lower-left hole, then the two bottom holes will be closer to the bottom of the license plate than the two upper holes are to the top of the license plate.

I don't understand, Greyghost.  Could you give an example of where the front page is a mess?  I'm not seeing it.


I think the layout of the front page should be wider to fill up the screen.


jeepguy, do you have a widescreen monitor?
                                                                                            
No, just a 17" notebook. What i see on the home page is the picture of the day, or whatever, with a huge orange border around it. Doesn't look right to me. The page would look better if it were more filled in. Other than that, and not yet clearing my cookies, i love it! A big improvement! Quack Quack!

You expect me to notice that?  I couldn't even tell you what color carpeting I have in my house.

Saw the stars AFTER you pointed them out. Your sharp eyesight must be the result of clean living and making a good Roux!!

CK,

Did you not see the message Stephen posted saying he changed them to stars? I'm not sure why since it was supposed to be a license plate and I've never seen a license plate with star holes.

At first glance you might think the holes do not line up like was originally discussed. On close examination they do now.

Nope, I saw the post where he said changes were coming (several posts up) but no mention of the changes.

We could also change the site name to Googlefood, if we are going to effect TJ's change!

It may have been in another message thread, but I am not going to go hunt it down.

Oops! I just cleared my cache and the problem went away. Is that what did it?

Anyway, sorry!

Some time ago there was a complaint about photos being covered up by advertising. Here's a link to an occurrence today:

The Travelin Man...I am sure that there are a few more things you are working on - and tweaks will continue, but if you are building a wish list for future enhancements, perhaps on each review, you can add a link to other reviews submitted by the same reviewer - or maybe something could be added to their profile page (with a direct link).  I don't want to belabor the oft-discussed point of people trusting/not trusting user-submitted reviews, but, perhaps readers might be able to make a more balanced decision on the value of the review if they can put things into perspective of other places the same reviewer enjoyed/didn't like?  

 
I don't know when this enhancement came online, but I like it.  I was just checking some reviews today and noticed that the writers names were hyperlinks and the link does take the viewer to a list of the reviews submitted submitted by the same user.  I think that this is valuable information to have - if someone has reviewed multiple places, we can now see what places were liked and/or not liked by the same reviewer at an easy click.  On the other hand, if someone just has one review and no other context of what they do like, whoever is reading that review can also take that into account.
 
There doesn't appear to be as many situations where people come along and post one negative review of a place and never contribute again - but, I do recall that being a problem some time ago.
 
Either way, thanks for the improvement!
