face it. We can't have fun anymore.  


Hey bill, wanna have some real fun?  Let's log in under assumed names and pretend to be hot dog vendors from New Jersey!

That would be different, a Whiz of an idea....................

I like the pizza people.

They do seem to know their spelling and sentence structure.

When the hotdog cart crowd infested the place and dumbed down the discussions, I lost interest pretty quickly.  Moving them to a separate section of the homepage was a step in the right direction, but the whole tenor of the forums never seemed to recover.  I've mostly moved on to other sites that actually discuss food and cooking rather than how to dodge health department regulations. 
 
I also find posts by restaurant owners of photos touting their latest blue plate special tedious and a little off-putting -- seems like thinly disguised advertising.

Enjoy the Pyramids.  I was there this time a year ago and they were barely visible since the city is usually enveloped in smoke from the burning of the rice paddies along the Nile at this time of year.
 
Try the ful and ftir -- two street food staples of Cairo.  If you're particularly adventurous, there's Molecahli (sp), which my family refers to as "slime soup" but is beloved by Egyptians.

Why no Avatars, not that I particularly care.

Same reason a lot of potentially fun things don't work, because some people will choose a picture of Hitler or a dead cat, or worse yet, JoeRogo as their avatar. Face it, idiots ruin a lot of fun stuff.


Never thought of the JoeRogo angle, but your so right!

I like the hot dog people!


Why's everyone always barking about the hot dog people here? They have their roll, which I don't relish, but find myself playing catch up with many of their threads.
I think it's about 8 to 1 in their favor, maybe 4 to 1, dunno, but I gotta run, flying to Vienna, but I got get about half smoked to fly!

You're so right about the avatar thing - there would be some people who posted photos of Hitler, Osama Bin Laden, Obama, Bush, Clinton etc. etc. etc. and that would just lead to arguing.  The lack of avatars is nothing.

After reading this I think there should be a "sticky" thread on how to navagate the site.
 
It is easy for me to look at posts in forum order or just look at the days posts that are never more than 3 pages. If I am gone for more than a day the "posts since last visit" is a "piece a cake" to look through. Even if there are 8 pages of posts it is arranged in sections of the forum. I can glide past sections that are of less interest to me.
 
I think folks who complain about certain sections of the forum do not know how to navigate the site in a way that arranges things by forum sections.
 
I like to look through the pro sections when I have time. If I don't have time I can glide past them real easially.
 
I'm kinda ramblin but... my suggestion;
 
Sticky; Site Navigation Tips
 
Mostly for the new folks that come here.

Me, I just hit Posts Since Last Visit. Easy. And about once a day I'll check Today's Posts to see whether I might have missed something. Simple.
 
Of course my favorite part of Roadfood is the political discussion.

This further segregation and indignation suffered
by this site's hot dog vendors is outrageous!

Stephen, not a bad move. The pro folks will find it. Many  never use "active topics" so... don't work tooo hard.

About my suggestion for a "sticky". Maybe just some instructions somewhere as to how to use the "All Forums" and "Forum Menu" and other options. Folks move so fast around the net that many do not take the time to learn the "how to's" of all the site buttons.
 
Oh, one button I love here is the little green arrow that zooms you right to the top of a thread page... neat!

I got bored with the bulls**t.
I have my IRL Roadfooders that I keep in touch with, and perhaps check this site a few times a week, but rarely post anything anymore. Why bother?
Also, yes, posting pics here is tedious. I don't have time for different sites and links and whatnot.  I post my food pics on my Facebook, and also on Foodspotting.com, both of which I do from my phone.

X1, being able to post pictures from a phone would be a boon to this site. That is something that needs to happen.

I don't get it.  Posting pictures is simple.
I never knew about that green arrow!  So when would you use it?

Mar, the little green arrow is on the lower right of each post. You use it to zoom back up to the top of the page. I use it all the time. Hmm, not sure why though? :~)

Thanks.  I just used it.  Now I have to figure out why I would.
I love the pictures of "the blue plate specials"
I try to recreate them at home when I can't go out to eat.

Mar, LOL!!!
 
I also love those pics. Although most of those dishes are way over my head to cook at home. :~(
 
But hey, I try anyway. Kinda sorta sometimes.
 
Has anyone said lately what a great site this is???

Stephen,  
 
My post was not meant to pile on the hot doggers.  I think the present format is flawed no matter who's on first.  I am sure this software does many exciting and extraordinary things, but us computer idiots are looking for simplicity.  One page, everything should be on one page.
 
Also, I would like to recommend two great Roadfooders as moderators for the pro section.  TTM & i95 have the perfect personalties and would do a bang up job.  I believe they are both born leaders.

I would have to disagree with you on this.  Anyone that has  a Roadfood  reestaurant  and  shows  phot os  of their food  is  doing nothing    wrong

Joe, you have my vote for... not sure what but you have it!
 
Flawed? Neat that we have some voice in how to fix it. Things have already happened because of our input here. We must strive for perfection while realizing that we can never achieve it.
 
One page???  All about Chili I hope!
