Where'd the Southeast go?

I know we're always last in educational ratings, but that's no reason to take us off Chowhound.

When you hit "Show all boards" under United States, Southwest and its boards are listed twice, and the Southeast boards aren't listed at all. Sure would be nice to talk about Charleston.... :(

    It's there, DBVB - see my post on another thread:


    Hopefully this is something that will be fixed very soon. Midwest has also slid off the Boards area box as well.

      No, it isn't. If you look closely, SOUTHWEST is listed twice while SOUTHEAST has disappeared. As jfood mentioned in another thread, has the SOUTHEAST seceded (again)?

      But, yes, the whole box thing is mis-sized too.

        Ahhh, yes - I see it is the Southwest repeated twice! Sucks for those in the Southeast.

        And I'll repeat - did ANYONE test this pre-release? I'm not technical by any means, but you'd think that before this was released, they'd have had a dozen people go through the site to make sure it was working before rolling it out. Hellz-bellz - we do that for my company's website, and we're all of 15 people!

          Remember Appomattox! ;-)

            This feels like the payback from the NY Magazine "a New Yorker's View of the United States." Now this is the San Franciscan view of the east. First eliminate the Tri-State and then then entire Southeast. BOOOOOOOOOM!!!!!!!!

            Watch it Texas, you guys are next

          Oh, by the way - to the powers in charge -
          When someone like LindaWhit above has linked to a specific post inside a thread, when I click on that link she provided, aren't I supposed to come to that specific post and have it be opened and there? It brought me to that post, but it's collapsed.

            I think I figured that one out - if you had already been in that thread and then you go back, it is collapsed (but who knows). When I first clicked on it, it was open. When I went back again for a test, it was closed. This is just not right!

              Hi LNG212 - yes you are supposed to be routed to the post open. This is a bug we are working to fix asap. Thanks for reporting!

            Sorry about this folks, we have a high priority bug ticket open on this. We accidentally replaced South with a second Southwest and working on fixing it.

              Jacquilynne - just a quick note to say THANK YOU to you, lainiecosgrove, the ChowTeam, and any others who are responding to our posts about the various issues. It at least knows you're listening to us and realizing the need for fixes.

            2. Jacquilynne Aug 10, 2010 02:05 PM

              And, South is back. Of course, it's hanging out off the edge of the dropdown panel so it's a bit hard to read, which is another high priority bug that Engineering is working on. But at least the South exists again.
