Personally, I'd like to see food in the recipe section....

With the stickies always at the top there is little room on the main page for general discussion topics...things get bumped down enough as it is...

My 2 cents!

I am starting my ticker again since starting low carb....in the home strech!

Yes. I will start snack, lunch, and dinner threads, so that we have 4 threads for low carb meals. Hopefully we figure out which set gets more people using them, and stick to THAT set, wherever it may be.

We now have a set of threads in the Low Carb Recipes forum for breakfast, lunch and supper menus. And a set of breakfast and lunch threads in the Main forum. And another thread in the Main forum called "Just Wondering" that some people are using to post their menus. Enough already!

Let's close out the menu threads in the recipe section, and everyone post on the threads in the main forum. Russell, will you start the snack and dinner threads there? Obviously, you can all post wherever you want to, but enough people have said that they wouldn't/didn't look in the recipes forum for menu ideas to make it seem reasonable to move them to where more people will see them.

I posted this same message on each of the menu threads in the Recipe forum.

So should I start a lunch, dinner, and snack thread? Let me know. If we do, then we will have to close down one set in a week. Can we do that. I would rather kill this one thread, than have 2 sets of them forever, which would make it necessary for people to click on 8 threads.

My goal was to get all the meal ideas in one place, not 2.

I agree. I think that just posting them here is fine. I wouldn't have even thought about looking at that other place...besides not really knowing where it is in the first place! lol I'll try to find it, but I don't normally log in to the main page. I log in when someone starts a thread I want to respond to.

Just a reminder that you can have up to 5 Forums in a team, I only see 4. Don't know if this would help

I think that since they are not exactly recipes, that people will not look for them in the recipe forum. I think that posting what you ate for the meals is more like general discussion.

That's my vote, but I usually just post when I get an email about it so I don't necessarily go looking for it anyway.

I wondered, myself, Russell, whether people will look in the recipes forum if they're not looking for recipes or don't know that the menu ideas are there. So let's keep both of them for a week or so and see where people want to post. Either place is fine. The important thing is that people be able to find them easily, even if they're not really looking for them!

Lets just go put them in the recipe forum. I just didn't think to look for them there BUDGETMAW. I see the breakfast, lunch, and dinner threads now. Not sure if you want to add a snack thread. The only thing I do wonder is whether people will know about them there. Maybe kill my thread, and post a sticky letting people know that they are in the recipe section?

I just think it would be easier to scroll down a list of meals that were all low carb for ideas. However that is done will be great for the team.

In response to a suggestion yesterday that we have a place to post our menus and a further suggestion from Russell that we have separate threads for breakfast, lunch and dinner, I started breakfast and lunch threads in the recipe forum here on this team's page. The forum is at the bottom of home page for the team. There is a dinner thread there that has dinner ideas going back at least a few months.

Russell didn't see those threads and started a breakfast thread here in the main forum.

We don't need threads both places, so let's take an informal sort of vote about where you want the threads. Post your menu ideas on the thread in whichever forum you'd rather see them, and after a week or so we'll take a look and see where the most people are posting and just have one set of threads in that forum.
