Food Threads.

I've been browsing General Chit-Chat lately to find more and more food threads, most of them comparing only two foodstuffs, or else asking opinions of a certain (and very certain, normally) type of food.

I really think that they should be compressed into a couple of threads; foodtalk, favourites, etc. Or even, if there are truly too many food threads, could Food Talk be added to the talk for Entertainment's Misc. subforum? (Food would almost always be discussed as a taste thing, as opposed to healthy diets and such; just like Sport is normally dicussed as entertainment, as opposed to a healthy lifestyle exercise... thing) Or you could even give it a subforum there.

Compared to many subforums and even forums--Temple of Light and Dark, Temple of Knowledge, some of the Entertainment subforums--I think this would see a lot more daylight. (Temple of Light and Dark has like, three threads on joining the clans, which could easily fit in General Chit-Chat/Feedback, Suggestions and Questions, and linked to in the Newbie's Guide- I'm sure it;'d be found easier by those who need it)

...so yeah, there's my little rant. :33

Re: Food Threads.

This always happens (the food threads); it's something we all have in common.




I don't personally think that it's a big enough issue to create its own subforum. But, if it's what you guys want, I wouldn't stand in the way either.

Haha, that was actually my first thought. xD Perhaps a lifestyle and fitness subforum, then? (Yeah, writing as it comes to mind xP)

Jinny: (Jehanne?) Well my original idea was the few official threads on the subject, but then after looking at some of the other forums, I felt that it wouldn't seem too strange to give it its own subforum.

Re: Food Threads.

Luckzray eats Linux, it'll make him fat :<


And I wholey support the general foods being merged into one place.

(and obesity = entertainment, Eijiro. That's why shows like The Biggest Loser and whatnot exist :p)

Re: Food Threads.

*Shameless bump*

Since food doesn't really seem a big enough topic to wrarant its own subforum, what about a Health, Fitness and Food subforum... somewhere? :33

Re: Food Threads.

It's not a bad idea, but it's hard to get anything to change unless there's a BIG interest.

Re: Food Threads.

Asia's interest manages to change my name. xD

(That's pretty much why I posted again- I presume if Jason and/or Scott agrees, and there aren't any major objections, the it'd be changed)

Although, I'm looking for reasons against just as much for reasons for; I believe it'll reduce clutter in General Chit-Chat, but if I see something to suggest otherwise, then hurrah anyway, it all benefits in the same way.

Re: Food Threads.

General Chit Chat is like the dumping ground for all that is not serious or topical... I never thought of it as a place that was supposed to be clutter-free. Health, Fitness, and Food would need to have enough traffic to warrant its own space, I'd guess.



I'm not sure if moderators (as opposed to those with Admin and Webmaster status) can create sections and subsections.

Re: Food Threads.

I say we change Kitsuné's name to DRAGON MAN and then ban him.

That'll show them.

Re: Food Threads.

I like the suggestion of having one big food thread (in GCC presumably), where all that talk can be dumped in there instead of being spread out over a bunch of threads.

I don't think a subforum is necessary.

Re: Food Threads.

Having "official" threads tends to cut down on the creativity that ZU members enjoy.

Centrality vs. autonomy. The classic debate rages on.

BTW, this thread has made me extra hungry, but it's not my lunch hour yet.

Re: Food Threads.
