I love reading Chowhound's message boards and will consult whenever I need an authoritative opinion or very helpful suggestion. I have often times seen the same questions over and over (i.e. Best Thai? Good place for party of 8?, etc.).
How about we start a yearly "Best of List" like Zagat's/Time Out/New York magazine? so that people can go straight to that link without asking the Message Board these same questions over again.
Chowhounders can vote; we'll list rankings; we'll specialize in a multitude of categories; etc.
