How about a map that lets you find the geographic boards?
Maybe I'm nuts, but I thought CH used to have this.
Often people are traveling to a place where they are unfamiliar with the geography. Or they might be more visually oriented. A map where you could click on the state/country and be directed to the appropriate board could be helpful.
I was just reading the thread about the confusion of what Central South is and a poster was trying to find Virginia. With the find and click map it would have been a snap!
Sounds like the map feature was badly designed, not that folks didn't want the option of one. I'm looking at the SF Bay area board, and a map to zoom in & out of would be a big help (of course, with the caveat that folks need to double check the current location/existence/etc outside of the map).
I hope Chowhound tries again for a user-friendly map feature.
It was the one almost universally hated feature on the site and removed. Just a few of the many, many posts
Lots more if you search on "map" , all years and sort by oldest first
