We're pleased to announce that we'll be making some changes to the breakdown of the Chowhound Boards on January 28th.
You can see a state by state breakdown of the American boards and a screenshot of the complete new board breakdown here: http://chowhound.chow.com/boardsplits
We've tried to create new urban boards where interest demanded them, as well as divide up some of our regional boards, without leaving any boards with so little discussion or so few posters that they will die out.
We'll be starting the new boards empty, and manually moving active discussions over to new boards where it makes sense. If you're participating in a discussion that you think needs a new home, please go ahead and use 'report' to flag it for the moderators to move.
We're also inviting well-established members of the site to help move threads. If you already have the ability to update and add Restaurants to our database, you'll also automatically have this ability. If you'd like to help, please see this thread: http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/682192
When searching on new boards, we'll automatically provides searches of previous boards as appropriate to help ensure you're getting complete search results.
Some of our current boards are changing boundaries or definitions, while others are being archived because all of their current territory is being shifted to new boards. Existing threads on those boards will be open for further discussion, but we'll turn off the ability to add new threads.
If you have any questions, this is the place to post them.
