Can I get an Amen?

      1. It seems better lately, but we still get the "great dinner on the beach in Florida" requests. LOL LMF

        1. Curious, not contrary…

          For every thread? Even ones not germane to a particular region or city?

          I’m curious why this is important. Haven’t had a problem with the current thread titling, but maybe I’m missing the point.

            No, no--not for every thread. This is a regional board request. The OP was moved from the Florida board.

            Florida, the New England board posters feel your pain and send an "Amen!" to your sticky request. I wish we could have one, too--especially since our local board bridges several states, some of which have the same city names therein.

              I get it...that's what I figured. I didn't know it had moved here to Site Talk.

                AMEN. Amen to what kattyeyes has said. Especially since The Staff refuses to make a simple correction to the Tristate board which sends people off in the wrong direction in Connecticut.

                  Except for SF and LA, all of CA is one board. And to complicate it slightly more, Reno, NV, is part of the CA board. I don't particularly see the problem. If I'm doing a search, I'll put in enough info that it will hopefully get narrowed down. CA has more than one city with the same name but it seems to sort out alright. But you know us Californians; we're probably all messed up most of the time anyway :)

                    Hey, c o, If it's not broke for you, by all means, don't ask to have it fixed.

                    But we, the few, the proud who post on the New England board would very much like a sticky to help keep things straight. ;) It seems to be a simple enough housekeeping request and one that doesn't require special programming. What say ye, The Chowhound Team? How 'bout a sticky for us and for Florida?

                    1. re: kattyeyes

                      On second thought, precious one, why not? But just a sticky. Not something where you can't even post if you don't enter a city etc. Sometimes that doesn't work. So, yeah, here's a half-hearted AMEN from NoCal :)

              2. You have my vote! It makes it easier for everyone and much more user friendly when searching.
