Restaurants Changes: Temporary Stop to Adding / Editing

CHOW HQ Jul 29, 2009 02:46 PM

We are in the process of redesigning the Restaurants section of the site. In preparation for this redesign, we need to make the following changes to existing functionality on the site, effective 9pm tonight:
- Users will no longer be able to add new restaurants to the database
- Users will no longer be able to edit restaurant pages.

** This functionality will return when we release the new Restaurants section in August **

Also, the site may be unavailable for about 15-20 minutes around 9pm.

We apologize for any inconvenience,

The CHOW Team

    Hello CHOW HQ,
    It's been over three weeks since the freeze, time for a status request.

    Any idea when the 'new' Place feature will be rolled out?
    We'd really like to get the Place database back before our memory runs out.

      Was wondering the same thing. Would like to add a new place, but alas...

      A month has gone past. When will we be ab'e to add/edit places again? Even an estimate would be nice.

        Okay, now it's September. Any update?

          The new restaurants code is still in beta. Until that's ready to go, updating will remain off.

          Looks as if someone was able to add or edit a place record yesterday. Is this feature back?

            Not that I'm aware of. That was ... weird. It'll be disabled until the new restaurants function is released, and then it'll be very obvious that things have changed.
