New Restaurants Section: Please reply here if you would like to be able to edit Restaurant/Bar Pages

LOCKED DISCUSSION

The information below is no longer accurate. Any registered user is now able to update the factual information on restaurant pages.

-====================

For this first release, we have limited access to editing of restaurant/bar pages (cuisine, neighborhood, features, etc) - if you are interested in editing these pages, please reply to this post and we will provide that access. Thanks.

If you're a restaurant or food business looking to update your own information (hours, website, etc), please just leave a note here with the information you'd like updated, or email it to info@chow.com, and we'll update it for you.

  1. I'd like to access to editing. I have a number of changes I've been saving up since Places was disabled for editing.

    1. Yes, please, count me in.

      1. Wow you fixed a lot of other things too! Looks great so far. May I please also have access? Thanks!

        1. Got the three to this point. As a side note, if you were involved in the beta for the new Restaurants section, you should already have edit access.

            "Save" button is not working for me. I click on it and nothing happens.
            Safari/OSX/ latest everything. This page:
            http://www.chow.com/restaurants/55099...
            The rest of the editing features appear to be working.

            Also: "Cancel" button does function.

            1. re: Chuckles the Clone

              OK, now that I logged out and back in, I can edit, but only theoretically...'cause, like you, I can't save either!

            2. re: Jacquilynne

              I can't. While I can get into the edit screen, when I hit save the record just hangs. As of this post I'm unable to save any Restaurant edits

              1. re: rworange

                Okay, but that's not related to the permissions issue that we're dealing with here. If you didn't have permission to edit, you wouldn't even see the edit button.

                1. re: rworange

                  We'll investigate & fix the problem. Thanks for your patience.

                  1. re: rworange

                    The editing problem has been fixed. Please let us know if you continue to experience problems.

                    1. re: CHOW HQ

                      Working for me now. Thanks!

                2. Although I don't edit restaurant info often, it's nice to be able to do so for new places or where the information is incomplete. Please add me to the list.

                  1. How much does it pay? I just did 14 informally this morning: http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/6553...
                    Took me a while.

                    1. Yes, please. And thanks.

                        Edit: http://www.lucias.com/main/main.htm

                        Should be http://www.lucias.com/ And that's just the first in the list for Minneapolis.

                      2. Yeah, I have a list of a few necessary corrections that I noticed while the records were locked.

                        1. I have a bunch of additions to make. Add me, please. :-)

                          1. Hi there. Can you help me out?

                            I chose one of my favorite restaurants in CT to start my contribution. Here 'tis:
                            http://www.chow.com/restaurants/44709...

                            What's weird is *I did* review this restaurant specifically--earlier this month, even-- yet it doesn't come up in the "related discussions" section below it. Here is a link to my review.

                            http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/653123

                            Conceptually, I like the idea, but in execution, it doesn't seem to be working...or not yet, anyway.

                            EDIT: While browsing some of my hometown favorites, I was delighted to see a little hole in the wall favorite of mine had a picture posted. I didn't recognize the poster's name. When I clicked on his profile, there were no posts. Did you recruit people to post pictures for various restaurants? How's this working?

                              And here I am again. I don't appear to have access to edit/modify a place. The only thing I can do is upload a picture...and I'm on my laptop without access to all my picture files, so I can't even do that. Can you please e-mail me and let me know how I can do this? I can only guess if the fields (hours, alcohol, etc.) were available for me to edit, they'd be clickable and they're not.

                              1. re: kattyeyes

                                There's an 'edit' link in the top right corner of the page.

                                1. re: Jacquilynne

                                  Can you please tell me where in the upper right hand corner? Am I losing it? :) Edit is under or above or next to what?

                                  1. re: kattyeyes

                                    They look like this. If you're not seeing them, can you first try logging out and back in, and if that doesn't help, post a similar screenshot of your own?

                                Hey there, ChowHQ...I don't know if you missed the EDIT part of my post since I went back in and added it later. I am curious...how would someone join up just to post pics and not to post reviews or anything? Did you recruit folks to add to the database?

                                1. re: kattyeyes

                                  We didn't recruit people to do this, but there's nothing in particular stopping people from signing up and posting pics and nothing else, if that happens to be what they're interested in contributing.

                                  1. re: Jacquilynne

                                    Maybe kattyeyes is talking about the 750,000 new restaurants & bars added to the database

                                    1. re: rworange

                                      Ah, in that case, the new entries came from a data supplier, they weren't added by people.

                                      1. re: rworange

                                        I'm not sure...did the 750,000 new restaurants and bars come with pre-loaded pics from people I've never seen before on Chowhound? If so, that does answer my question. :)

                                        1. re: kattyeyes

                                          That user seems to have signed up around June 16th. What's odd about someone signing up and adding a photo? Maybe he works there? There are well over 1,000,000 user accounts here and not all of them are actively posting things. Lots of people just read.

                                          1. re: Chuckles the Clone

                                            People who work there all have Vietnamese last names. :) No worries--it's nice that people are participating. I was just expecting a familiar name from the local board, so when it was a stranger, I wondered if the Chow team had recruited people to add photos. No biggie. I was just curious.

                                2. Please include me.

                                  1. Count me in for editing access, please.

                                    Can I assume this will also allow me to add a new listing?

                                      It's been over a week since I asked for permission, and I still don't get how I'm supposed to edit (unless in fact I haven't yet been put in for editing access?).

                                      I'm crossposting here ...

                                      http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/6558...

                                      ... because I also can't get the linked page to allow me to set up new listings.

                                        Have you logged out and logged back in since you requested editing access?

                                          Thanks, that worked -- for editing. Now I just need to figure out how to add a new entry.

                                          1. re: maxzook

                                            Search for a place that doesn't exist, like sxwfeplk. That will bring up an add-a-place link.

                                    2. Yes, I would like to be able to edit the listings.

                                      I noticed that the Google Map for Goodfella's Cafe in New Haven, CT is way off base, even though the street address is accurate. Any idea why?

                                        Google maps are sometimes a little flaky. But you can update the restaurant page with the precise latitude and longitude (which you can find by finding the actual location on google maps) and that should fix it.

                                        1. re: rbailin

                                          How's it look now? I moved it.

                                            Nope, it's showing up on Fountain St (Rt 243) in Westville, right near the underpass to the Parkway (Rt 15).

                                             
                                            1. re: rbailin

                                              This must be an old database. It is not directly linked to or interactive with Google Maps. I moved the POI on Google Maps to the correct building. It was at the corner place (next door), which is jinxed, it seems.
                                              Have you been to or have anything to report about Goodfellas Cafe?RE, my "quick review" http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/6579...

                                              1. re: Scargod

                                                When I clicked on Goodfellas Cafe to bring me to the database, and then edited the entry and saved it, the correct Google Map appeared. But the Google Map on your Goodfella's thread is still wrong, even after refreshing the page. Must be a glitch in the html.

                                                1. re: rbailin

                                                  Now, on my screen, next to the thread http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/657923
                                                  the POI doesn't even show. It's the right area on the map, but no marker!

                                                  EDIT: Then I go to the restaurant review: http://www.chow.com/restaurants/96737... and the POI marker is there. Go back to the previous page and miraculously, it has appeared.
                                                  I repeated this phenomenon twice.

                                                  On an off note: Where are the SLOW reviews? The biggie reviews or the reviews by pros? We have "Quick Reviews", implying that Slow or long reviews will be forthcoming?

                                        2. I don't know if this is the best place to post about problems editing Restaurant/Bar pages, but here goes:

                                          I tried to add hours of operation for Feng Asian Bistro in Hartford, CT while logged in using IE8 in compatibility mode. For every character that I type in the text box, the box gets narrower. After typing a dozen chars, the box is reduced to a thin vertical line (but the text is there). If I pass the mouse cursor over the box before it's reached that stage, it may revert to its full size, but this happens only once. I would then have to save the changes and then go back to edit mode to add more info to that text box.

                                          The hours text box works fine in Firefox 3.5.

                                          However, after spending a good deal of time copying their 3-part hours of operation from their website (and it's not obvious where to find it), I only ended up with "Mon-Thurs", the 2nd line of many I had typed in, in this format:

                                          Dinner:
                                          Sun-Thurs 5-10PM
                                          Fri-Sat 5-11PM
                                          [etc.]

                                          When I retyped all that info onto a single line with no line breaks (the way the old system worked), it kept everything I typed, but it's not very readable.

                                          Can someone look into this?

                                          Also, I copied a couple of links to reviews from their website, and they display as entered, but are not very readable either. Can one enter HTML <a>-type links in this field, so that one can see "Connecticut Magazine Review" instead of "h.t.t.p://www.connecticutmag.com/site/news.cfm?..." ?

                                          Oh, one more thing:
                                          Please define what price ranges the $, $$, ..., $$$$$ selections mean.

                                            Is that still happening, the mysterious shrinking field? I was noticing it too on Firefox, but not recently.

                                            Agree about the $$$. Without a key it means nothing.

                                              Yes, it's still happening and very annoying to deal with. I've never seen this behavior before on a webpage, after literally years of experience on the web. Must be one heckva coding error.

                                            2. re: rbailin

                                              You could always go by the Yelp pricing guideline? :) BTW, there is no $$$$$.
                                              $=Cheap, under$10
                                              $$=Moderate, $11-30
                                              $$$=Spendy, $31-60
                                              $$$$=Splurge, Above $60
                                              They suggest this is the price, per person, after tax and tip.
                                              They also say this range is subject to change.

                                              My thoughts are that we rarely spend over $60 per, so this is about right for our somewhat pricey New Haven area. It is perhaps not the norm in NYC (too low) or Austin (too high?).

                                              Fodor's use this simplified guide:
                                              ¢ - Cheap
                                              $ - Budget
                                              $$ - Mid-range
                                              $$$ - Upscale
                                              $$$$ - Expensive
                                              Chow may be inferring pricing like this without commenting.

                                              Others may not have anything about pricing. Could not find it on Zagat.

                                              I would like to know what they mean by "menu", when they have primary cuisine, cuisine tags and tags. Confusing. Obviously not a yes-no question.
                                              There's just no "Help" or guide here!

                                                In that field you can enter a URL, if there's an online menu.

                                                1. re: Scargod

                                                  Yes, menu is the actual menu. Some restaurants don't have websites so it can be found on other sites such as menupages, sporq, foodiebytes, grubhub, a thousand minor places.

                                                  I started adding $ prior to the change. I looked at all the places that use pricing ... yelp, zagat (they have it), opentable, menupages, local newspapers.

                                                  It is best to use a four level tier since that is the most common. Menupages uses a five level tier, IIRC, and it is just confusing. One place used three tier. While that eliminates the biggist ambiguity ... those places that straddle $$ and $$$ ... it lumps too many places in together. Some are clearly $$ while others are $$$ and you don't want priicey if you are looking for midrange..

                                                  The thing I did find out ... as far as four-tier pricing ... was that no matter how it was calculated ... entire meal ... entree ... it doesn't matter. The cheap restaurants were always $ and the $$$$ restaurants were always expensive ... no matter what criteria you used.

                                                  Fodor's actually has the right idea using descriptions rather than price ranges based on some critera.

                                                  It eliminates regionalism. What might fall in the mid-range category in NYC could be upscale pricing in the suburbs in another area of the country ... not to mention other countries outside the US. IIRC, outside of the US is where Zagat was inaccurate.

                                                  It also solves the problem of outdated pricing due to inflation or deflations.

                                                  Don't agree with their distinction between cheap and budget though. It throws a clear category into fuzzy territory. I do like the word budget for $. I was using inexpensive. Cheap isn't fair to many low cost restaurants as it implies lesser quality.

                                                  I don't like upscale though for $$$. I think pricey is better. Upscale implies a certain type of restaurant. There are many type of places such as sushi joints or old school continental restaurants that are pricey but not really upscale.

                                                  Yes, it would be nice to have a rollover legend that defined those levels such as
                                                  $=Budget
                                                  $$=Midrange
                                                  $$$=Pricey
                                                  $$$$=Expensive

                                                    My guideline has been more entree-based (average cost):
                                                    $=under $10
                                                    $$=$10 - $20
                                                    $$$=$20 - $35
                                                    $$$$=over $35
                                                    simply because appetizers, drinks, etc., are optional, main courses aren't.
                                                    When you add in those other items, you get your pricing levels shown above.

                                                    I experienced the mysterious shrinking field last weekend (IE7 on my laptop, IE6 where I'm typing now) and didn't report it except while talking to Scargod, so thanks for raising it here. That got old very fast for me. Only way I could work around it was to type a little bit, save, go back, repeat...I did one listing and called it quits. I would really like to fill in the blanks for some of my local favorites who don't have websites...especially places where I tend to direct others. Chowhound Team, any workaround on this issue?

                                                    rbailin, while we're site talkin', I've appreciated many of your recommendations on our local board. Would love if you filled in your top 5 favorites on your profile...just in case you're onto something else I'm missing. ;) Thanks for the very tasty advice.

I'm not finding Luce in Hamden or Ibiza in New Haven, and the only Pika Tapa record I can find is the one that's marked closed. Please don't do that, btw, as even if we then go through and merge the duplicate records, the end result will end up showing as if it was closed.

We hope to have a) the 'mark as duplicate' function returned to users who have edit authority soon, so you can fix them yourself if you come across them and b) Engineering do an assessment on how widespread the problem is and whether we can fix it on the backend.

This gives you a list of all 117 establishments located in Hamden. Luce was #46 on the list. The restaurants appear to be sorted by their database record number.

If I am new to NH and I want to branch out and find an Italian restaurant, outside of downtown, I type in "New haven, CT" (where it says "near"), I still only get restaurants in New Haven. If I enter the major zip, 06511, for downtown New Haven I get surrounding areas. 23 versus 35. You can get there, but it requires too much persistence and experimenting.

Not a big deal if there are 10 replies but kinda aggravating if there are dozens...

                                                                                    On the plus side, I'm noticing that when I do more than one edit on a post, it no longer reverts to the previous version, which is great!

                                                                        2. I'd like to add a couple of new restaurants to the listings...Please grant me access.

                                                                                  1. I would just like to edit my own restaurant, Eddie's Pizza in Clinton Maryland. There is absolutely no information available there, making it somewhat difficult for the chowheads on this site to try and fall in love with my chow.

                                                                                    Thanks

                                                                                      I have nothing to do with Chow other than being a poster, but I was updating some restaurant records in my neck of the woods and wrote up your info while I was at it.

                                                                                    2. I've noticed a few errors and out-dated info on the Ontario board. Please provide me with access.

                                                                                                          1. re: Jacquilynne

I have entered over a hundred records and to this day sometimes I forget about that and think it is not working.

                                                                                                            Also you won't get the link if a lot of search results match.

                                                                                                            1. re: Jacquilynne

I am currently in Long Beach, and have no problems updating address placemarks when posting on the Los Angeles board. When I add a new post or reply to another post, the "Manage your links" bar appear automatically on top of the "Attach photos" bar.

                                                                                                              However, the "Manage your links" bar does not appear when I try to add/reply to a post in other (non-US?) boards, e.g. "China & Southeast Asia", "Australia/New Zealand", "UK/Ireland". During the pre-revamp days, we can do so, and it was very helpful to CHs travelling to those countries/continents as the address placemarks link to the Google Maps. Any chance of enabling the "Manage your links" bar for boards outside the US?

                                                                                                  2. Please add me to the list of users who can edit restaurant info. Thanks!

                                                                                                        Basically, search for something that doesn't exist, and there should be an 'Add a New Place' link beneath your non-existent search results. Click that and a box will open up (you may have to scroll up to find it if you're scrolled down the page) and allow you to add the place (it will take a minute or so).

                                                                                                        Then, it'll bump you to the edit page where you can add any information you have on hours, website, etc.

                                                                                                        1. re: Jacquilynne

                                                                                                          1. re: Googs

                                                                                                              2. I would like to be able to add a new restaurant listing in Aptos, CA and edit others.

                                                                                                                          I own the Rookery Pub at Cable Nature Lodge in Cable, WI. I'd like to provide the following information details for you to add to our Chow listing. Thanks! Bill Brakken (715) 794-2062

                                                                                                                          1) Despite the name, the Rookery Pub is not just a bar, but rather a restaurant with a full wine/beer/liquor bar. Our cuisine encompasses American (New), California, Fusion, Seafood, and Vegetarian.

                                                                                                                          2) Our address is 20100 County Hwy M, Cable, WI 54821 (which hopefully will also correct the currently inaccurate Google map location).

                                                                                                                          3) Our other features included: Romantic, Good for Groups, Outdoor Seating, Notable Wine List (for our area), Private Party, On-site Parking, Reservations Accepted, and Don't Miss (rated #1 in our area by Trip Advisor).

                                                                                                                          4) Our average price range for entrees is $15-30.

                                                                                                                          5) We accept the following credit cards: American Express, Discover, Visa, MasterCard.

                                                                                                                          6) Our website address is www.RookeryPub.com.

                                                                                                                          7) We are located in a highly seasonal market so our hours vary from 4 nights/week in winter to 7 nights/week in summer/fall. Perhaps "call for hours" might be indicated?

                                                                                                                          1. Hi - I'm late to the game, but just noticed that even though I was involved with the beta (and info and pictures I've uploaded are still there), I can no longer edit Restaurants, and would love to be able to access that again.

I also did a search for a new restaurant that I knew wasn't listed and didn't see a tool to add its name. Apologies in advance if I'm just being dopey.

                                                                                                                                  1. re: mcf

                                                                                                                                    Did you just log off the internet? You have to log out of and back into Chowhound.

Is this because I volunteered to move threads to the new boards? Regardless, I have been adding restaurants to the database. Don't take my privileges away!

                                                                                                                                                    Thank you!

I live in Durango, CO and I noticed that your information on our town is seriously out of date, and is missing some major restaurants in our area. Here is a link to a local social networking page that has the most up to date listings. Please let me know how I can add listings and reviews for new listings. Please reply to my email.

                                                                                                                                                      1. Oops, here is that link I promised from Durango!

If you'd like to send any factual updates (hours, website, etc) to us at info@chow.com, or leave the information here in the thread, we'll be happy to make those updates on your behalf. But, please be sure to include the URL of your listing on CHOW.com with your request.

Why can't I upload photos of a restaurant? I clicked on your Contact CHOW link and it produces an error. The upload photo window comes up but when I click on "Browse" nothing happens....why??

                                                                                                                                                                  1. Just a quick note that all registered users are now permitted to edit restaurant pages, so we're going to lock this thread.
