Several people have expressed interest in having a regular Cheese of the Month (or some other interval of time) thread on the Cheese Board. Each thread would have a single cheese as its topic of discussion. To help determine the best way to proceed, please provide an answer to the following three questions from among the choices given:
1. Does this idea interest you?
2. How often should the threads appear?
MONTHLY (Cheese of the Month)
Every TWO WEEKS (Formaggio of the Fortnight)
WEEKLY (Cheese of the Week)
3. How should the cheeses be chosen?
VOTING: This procedure would mirror the method used for Cookbook of the Month. Before each new thread, readers would nominate cheeses or indicate their preference from a short list. The cheese with the highest number of votes would be the cheese discussed that month.
COMMUNAL LIST: Occasionally (say, twice a year), readers would indicate cheeses they would be particularly interested in learning more about. The originator of each thread would then choose from among the cheeses on the list.
WRITER'S CHOICE: Whoever is responsible for starting a particular month's (week's, 14-day) thread would be free to write about any cheese.
Please begin your response with your answers to the three questions, using just the words in caps. (Obviously, if you're not in favor of this idea, you need answer only the first question.) This will make it easy to tabulate the responses. Example:
If you'd like to explain the reasons for your choices or contribute other comments, that would be very helpful, but again, please place your answers to the three questions at the top of your post.
