Elimination of restaurant database

rose water | Feb 17, 2012 05:41 PM

I'm not posting on the mega thread about this impending change, because my question here is more specific.

How will threads like http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/8168... or http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/828010 look after the restaurant database is eliminated? Will Robert's post say "links" and nothing more? Will the banh mi thread look like the OP provided no name/address of the place under discussion? If that's the case, I'm concerned about all the holes the process will make throughout the (incredibly valuable) archive of old threads. Is there a plan/system to proactively capture and address these gaps before the restaurant database is scrapped?

Eliminating the bit that denotes places that have closed will also considerably reduce the utility of archived threads.
