Total Tech Idiot. Does this "change" mean everything I wrote on the actual Chowhound discussion boards will be eliminated? [Answer: NO!]


I don't use any "features" of Chow other than the Outerboroughs message board. Will everything I have ever written be gone in March if I don't do this whole download thigamajig?

Sorry for what I know is complete and utter idiocy on my part, but I don't get what's going on and have zero time to research prior posts.

Many Thanks in advance and may all your meals be delish,

  1. No -- it refers to content you submitted to the Restaurant Database section of the site
    ( ) as well as CHOW Lists of restaurants ( and Been There / Wanna Go checkins.

    I've looked at your history and you have no reviews that were submitted directly to the Restaurant Database and no Lists of Restaurants.

    You do have a small number of restaurants you listed as 'Been There' which you can see here: and export using the 'export tab' above if you wish.

    1. re: Jacquilynne

      Thanks so much. I'm Old Skool Chowhound. Since the first couple of months of its inception Way Back When. Not so sure about all these Chow features. Just give me my boards and I am happy as a clam in olive oil, parsley, and hot pepper flakes ;)

    2. Thanks for posting that, ZF. I had the same question myself.
