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.

    Thanks!

      We don't have a map, but we do have a list:

        Very handy.

        Thanks! Hopefully those who need it will find it...

        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

          Good to know I'm not nuts! I was sure I had seen it in the past.

          Sounds like a good idea to me! And it could show those cities that have their own boards, too.
