Some cosmetic changes in preparation for larger site changes in the works.

Couldn't agree more. Unless we attract new blood AND keep know-it-all bullies...

...from coloring the forum with their own brand of googledge, we won't see growth, high activity, etc.

At Epi we suffered through a lack of moderation and the eventual destruction of a searchable database containing thousands of user-posted recipes, advice, techniques, menus, etc. It was difficult and, eventually, sad.

BUT, we did have a lot more traffic at Epi, since obviously the entire site and THEIR recipe database attracted tons of traffic. Some of that traffic clicked on the "Recipe Swap" link, and a handful became regular participants. A ton became "lurkers" who didn't post, but read the forum regularly.

I appreciate the fact that we have been able to stay somewhat intact, and Mimi and Paul are my heroes.
