We as the webmasters would love to improve the recipe section (we have discussed it). If it was used more, I confess, we'd find some motivation to improve it or add new features.
BUT WE NEED YOUR HELP TO DO IT!
I personally think it would be great to get as MANY really good recipes added to the recipe section... and as I recall they just aren't that hard to enter (pretty much simple text entry).
If you guys feel that this forum provides REAL VALUE to you as a COMMUNITY of BGE owners (myself included), the way to make things better requires some INPUT FROM THE COMMUNITY, not just a bunch of miscellaneous links to offsite references in posts.
Having posts that point to recipe on a website here or another website there doesn't do much to improve THIS community, if you find a good recipe somewhere, POST IT HERE!
If recipes are just links buried in a post, or text entered in a post, not everyone will see it. And if you vote for it on another site, it does nothing to help gather an "aggregate" opinion of REAL EGGERS (this COMMUNITY) who know, as a COMMUNITY, this product and how best to use it.
Just think how helpful it would be to have all the GREAT recipes and techniques "under one roof", judged and graded by experts and newbies alike from THIS COMMUNITY (that is YOU GUYS!) so that newbies and experts alike would have a convenient and meaningful "central repository" of GREAT RECIPES at their fingertips.
I myself have on MANY occasion to search recipes here before somewhere else. One would think that THIS is the place to find the "best of the best of the best, SIR!" (sorry, I couldn't help the "Men in Black" reference).
This is YOUR COMMUNITY, it, like any other community, prospers best when we all chip in and lend a hand.
I know it may seem trite, but it really does "TAKE A VILLAGE".
