Hi Hi to all Food lovers ;)

yup, 1SwtDeception and myself are hoping to make the Soompi Food thread more conducive to all who come to the thread.

Do let us know if you have any feedback. We will be happy to hear from you if you welcome the changes. :sweatingbullets: On the other hand, if you have any suggestion, feel free to post too.

why does the food forum need labels? Sorry quite don't understand the necessity of it :sweatingbullets: I understand for forums like the lyrics forum (for ppl who are looking for chinese/korean/japanese or romanization/translation/original) or the entertainment forums for news or something. most of these labels for the food forum is glaringly obvious [ie. opinions/ques] and I think the only useful would be special food diet or recipes.

Hi Poop-Shoop-A-Loop,

We first like to tidy up the food forum. Looking back at the first impression I had when I came into the forum, it was kind of messy. I couldn't easily find what I'm interested in. Adding labels is to facilitate searching. Especially for newcomers.

Kind of agree with Poop-Shoop-A-Loop, it makes everything look a little cluttered IMO. I reckon it'll be more organised to add labels to those that need to stand out ie recipes... Labelling "food chat" and "opinions" is kind of .. well... pointless to me.. especially since they are almost the same thing. Looking at the list why is "what cereal do you like to eat" different from "fav type of sushi" but one's food chat another's opinion ? ... Yeah .. I kind of find it redundant ...

Also.. isn't it easier to just make a "super thread" for questions where people can just go to that thread to ask questions.. rather than have a bunch of [Questions]

inxomnia I love your "Super Thread" idea, ie, a thread for people to put all their questions in. While I welcome participation and new threads, I do find all the questions threads getting too many, esp when for some of them, the participation is pretty low.

1SwtDeception , what do you think? We merge those questions threads under the super threads? maybe call it the Super Questions :P

thanks people for all your ideas. Keep it coming so that we can continue to brainstorm together.

Since you're merging a lot of recipes into the swap/share recipes thread, is it possible to index the recipes in different categories for easy access?

anyway the super questions thread sounds cool.

but if you're gonna merge all the questions into one thread that seems it'll really limit the food talk on the food forum into one thread. plus it becomes just commenting on the thread instead of having an actual discussion on various types of food? I think Soompi needs encouragement to have discussions/member interaction rather than a "comment-only" type of system which is what the thread will turn into because it'll be so bulky. it's not like someone's going to look through many pages to answer one random question that someone has ("do you like dark chocolate or milk chocolate"). Iono if I'm making sense, lol!

I don't renember if we've had this before but how about a pinned Food help thread ? when people are trying to figure out what they're doing wrong with their recipe and want to make it right.

example:

"i'm trying to make pho but its not coming out right. what should i do to make it taste better?"

reply: "add.. blahlblah. or i have a secret, i put a dash of ___. makes it extra tasty."

"this recipe i'm using calls for ___, but i dont have it! anything i can use as a substitute?"

Why was the "What did you eat today?" thread closed? I get that it was a little pointless considering no one read each other's posts so there wasn't much discussion, but it was a somewhat popular thread. You should reopen and make it a rule that people post pictures of what they ate to make it more interesting.

That would be just great I guess, but I also suggest that many of the popular thread reopened for easier access!
