Petition to change I Love Cooking to The Cheese Board

Message Bookmarked
Bookmark Removed

On the "Post a controversial opinion" thread (of all places) the idea was raised to change the rarely-used board I Love Cooking to The Cheese Board, a new sub-board focused on food generally rather just on cooking. I would like to pose this request formally to the moderators.

But I do agree that the cheese board was a pun that didn't need to be taken any further than that tbh

Honestly, any boards that have very little traffic (some threshold like under _ _ posts a month) should be removed/merged. Maybe I should've posted that under controversial opinion.

i don't support removing or merging my board ask dr. freud that no one posts on but i am a moderator on and i don't support removing or merging i love cooking because other food threads are indeed bad but i don't care what the board is called

Even vegans/veg should understand the aesthetic. They make very good vegan cheese boards (cashews yum!) nowadays. I thought the Cheese Board name was pretty much opening up the board to talking about food in general and not necessarily only recipes. It doesn't really fucking matter as long as more people use it.

the board description is fine and is not a euphemism, i mean who even looks at board descriptions. it's just that it's a dumb pun (speaking charitably) and if the intent is to direct ilx general food threads there i am not in favor of that.

all boards should basically consist of one or two rolling threads that last for five years each and have only a few regular posters.

People don't enjoy the food threads?? I'm mystified by this. That thread about whether or not a hot dog is a sandwich is among the funniest ie best threads i've ever read here. Rolling food lab is good also. I always enjoy the food threads. When i notice them, anyway.

another vote for changing it back, no harm no foul

leave the sub boards as they are, it helps sort stuff out in the SNA era (i.e. I can block NFL threadz)

sleeve, Saturday, 3 March 2018 03:54 (nine months ago) Permalink

xp honestly i like most people on ilx, really i do, but when a thread is about food opinions it becomes insufferable.

like there's literally nothing i care less about than randos talking about what they like to eat. i love cooking, as it is, at least requires that the poster prepares the food they're discussing.

call all destroyer, Saturday, 3 March 2018 04:02 (nine months ago) Permalink

hardly anyone used I Love Cooking, and you can still post about cooking there, the remittance is broader now that's all

cool, then ignore it like I do movie & tv threads! we all have different things we don't care about.

"descriptive and accurate" I was thinking we could change this! let a board shift.

I mean there will be more debate on this thread than there has been posting on I Love Cooking in a year

I changed the board name in a fit of enthusiasm because the requests were the first thing I saw when I woke up and I presumed that any controversy had been hashed out elsewhere (such as on I Love Cooking itself, which I don't read). I didn't realize that it was a pun. As a non-reader of ILC, I don't care either way what it's named or what it does. So once the people who have an interest in food topics have hashed everything out, we can absolutely change it back to I Love Cooking or change it forward to a newer and even better name.

In the past, I've been in favor of moving things off of ILE and into subboards. I was excited about the prospects for The Church when it started. I was a vocal propenent of giving all the soccer fans their own home far away from my eyes. And as recently as last week, I was seconding someone who suggested a separate I Love Politics board to get all the Brexit and Trump threads off of ILE. I Love Football has thrived on its own. The Church kinda didn't. Non-cooking food threads regularly get lots of participation on ILE. Will moving these discussions to a subboard improve them?

I agree with imago though, that change can be invigorating. So I'm eager to see where this goes.

mark otm, you can set what boards to view in preferences, but if you want to see just topical threads, go to the board

I tend to have SNA showing everything other than ILM so my music browsing is just music. I’ve also excluded 77 from it in the past so I have that context switch to remember “this is private stuff”

everything else is just a good mix. more boards, I say!

mh, Saturday, 3 March 2018 14:16 (nine months ago) Permalink

Active sub-boards are good things because it’s easier to find threads that haven’t been updated in the last 48 hours or so that way. On Zing especially, I really enjoy the fact that ILS, ILG, etc can be visited separately and you can dig up threads from months ago and revive. Way better than search tbqh.

El Tomboto, Saturday, 3 March 2018 14:48 (nine months ago) Permalink

If moving threads wasn’t such a guaranteed means to fuck up the database and break links, I would gladly volunteer my time to help balkanize ILE into topic subboards if for no other purpose than to visit weeks-old food and movie threads on a whim.
