The conversations about the restaurant data base going bye-bye and the thread about our ideas to improve the site led me to the idea of:
a member nominated advisory board!
Hounds would know they at least had a voice in decisions like the restaurant fiasco before the decision is carved in stone. Management (if they could keep an open mind) could benefit from the knowledge which comes from long, active use of the site. We have members with extensive real world technical experience who can speak the same language as the engineers.
In my perfect world we would be putting this together and CH would continue to move towards a brighter, collaborative future.
And maybe a chicken in every pot too!
