How to deal with Queen of the Boards?

Wishful thinking, from what I have found they are so delusional in their self absorbed dreams of grandeur, it's always the rest of the world that's wrong, never them!!

Pagination Side Effect??? Half-Full Pages???

Just a FYI, when I click the link provided, there is nothing wrong with the view on my end. There is no gap as you suggest, everything is collapsed as it should be. I think it might be on your end my friend. I'm using Chrome.

To do a screenshot hold control & print screen at the same time. Then open something like paint and paste/save from there.

Good luck.

Hmmmmm the last one I knew of was thankfully banned, I'm sorry you are experiencing this. Quite simply ignore or flag the person if they are being too snarky, but mostly ignore. That's the best advice.

Given the lack of attention this thread has received it seems to me people are more content just complaining about the changes, then trying to find suitable solutions for the future.

There is a slight chance I might go tonight. It's a long shot but keep an eye out for me, first round is on me! (Martini's not steaks!!)

Here's my observation.....they save the better cuts of meat for later rounds....they start off with sausage, chicken, rib....cheaper cuts, they do try to fill you up on the crappy (tasty don't get me wrong, but not the better cuts) early, so when they come around with the sirloin, tenderloin etc. you are ready to throw in the towel. Also skipping the salad bar all together isn't a bad idea, there's really nothing worth while on there.

I look forward to your report.

Well the flip side of that coin is a new one-time user won't have the prior experience to judge this new format against. So they will either like the content (regardless if it's collapsed or not) and decide to stick around, and perhaps learn of the other option, or not like the content and move on anyway. At least that's how I see it.

Agreed, but it's done, there is a "fix" and I'm sure they are learning the piss poor PR side as well. I just don't see the "outrage"........shit happens, I'm ok with it.

What exactly do you need "fixed"? They have issued simple instructions on to "undo" these changes, if you haven't read them yet;

Go to; Settings/Chowhound/Click the second box, done!

OUCH......had to go with the "tax" analogy!! I agree completely the current method of communicating changes like this is "lacking" to put nicely!! See my new thread about the Community Calender!

Suggestion for TPTB... Community Calender...

Reading all the latest huffing and puffing about the latest "changes" to the site, and agreeing that it seems the current method of communicating changes (creating a post and leaving it up to members to find, read and understand the post) seems to be lacking, I offer the following as a suggested enhancement to the site.

Why not have a community calender we can all go to, and on there you place any upcoming changes or enhancements. This way we know what to expect and when to expect it, thus averting this "panic" that sets in when something new is being released. Could include site maintenance, upgrades, changes etc. Once spot for us to go to easily see what's going on and when.

(we could of course tie this into the Jr. board, just sayin)

Just some "food for thought".

Well in all fairness "they" have made it known the site is in a state of "flux", for lack of a better word. They have clearly communicated to us as a community that change(s) were coming and this apparently seems to be one.

As has been stated several times above, these most recent changes can easily be reverted, so there really is no harm done to anyone. Is it inconvenient? Sure......but it really is 3 clicks and 5 seconds to put things back to how we were all use to them. Even if the true motivation is to increase click traffic per page etc. there was a legitimate grip about page loading for topics with many responses (100+), so they are attempting to satisfy a long standing complaint.

I will say that I feel their method of communicating these changes could use some tweaking, starting a thread like this and leaving it up to us to find, click, read and comprehend exactly what's going on seems like a poor way of doing things.

I'm not going to deny that your overall assumption isn't correct, but I will say that the loading of long threads (100+) responses was a very daunting task on a mobile device. (It was slow on a PC as well, but tolerable) So there is some truth to their story.

While I tend to agree with your overall sentiment, you do know you can easily revert the changes, correct?

(If not go to Settings/Chowhound/Click Collapse Threads)

Yeah I hear ya, I'm much closer than you are to it and it's a pain in the a** for me to schlep over there. Keep it in the back of your mind the next time you happen to find yourself in the area, you won't regret it. Plus you can have yourself a fine tequila or two at Copper Canyon across the street after dinner!!

I have not been, but since you mentioned the Veal Chop, my favorite Veal Chop is now at Christine's in Atlantic Highlands. Have you made your way over there yet? If not I strongly recommend it.
