So here I am posting on "Site Talk" per request.
First, I admit that I didn't look at the message at the top of the Home Cooking Board about COM re choosing the COM, and so don't know if the link to the suggestion thread is given in that message. If it is, maybe the info could be at the beginning of the post so folks would notice it more. Or in all caps.
I did look over the long suggestion thread and again wonder if it could be lodged at the beginning of the Home Cooking Board as is the choice of COM message. I think it should certainly be replaced every so often, since we could have suggestions from 1957 if we kept it up long enough....well, maybe that's an exaggeration, but you catch my drift.
I'd volunteer to do cookbook of the month, but I think I may be thought of as too thorny for the job. I do, however, certainly have some extra time these days and would be glad to volunteer.
