Two Suggestions

I'm really growing to like the new site, but in using it, I've noticed a couple of things that I think would be helpful:

1. It would really be nice to have a page explaining the search logic/permitted terms, etc. that can be used with the new search feature. (E.g., are boolean connectors permitted, and if so, what are they, how about wildcard characters, quotation marks, etc.)

2. I would like it if there were a way to set the "My Chow" page to list more than my ten most recent posts. I really, really like this feature, but I sometimes put up ten posts in a day or two, so it's fairly common for still active threads to drop off the list. Seems like there's plenty of room on the page for more (he says, idiotically ignorant of the technical challenges/ramifications).

Anyway, thanks for the great website. It rocks!

  1. I agree with your 2nd point. Its hard finding the earlier posts, and when I search it, more chances than none that nothing will pop up to what I'm searching for, even if the phrase is verbatim. Why?
