So what's next?
« on: March 20, 2014, 10:17:14 PM »
Hi everyone.

I'm working on an update that explains all of the things that the WKC team has planned for this year.

We've already accomplished quite a bit.
Lawrence and Hank and Marty have been busting butt with regular blog posts and guides.
Check them out on the homepage.

Jeff and Terry and Marty have all done a TON of work putting together the galleries.
Craig has been working on a new and improved weber history document.

MEGA thanks to all of these guys for making the WKC awesome!!!

SO now i ask you - What can we do to make the site BETTER?
How can we improve? What does the site need?

If we like your idea enough, we'll send you some WKC shwag!

 Yes, very much a thank you to these fine fellows !!!!!

 One thing that may help ( and I don't know enough computer-ese to understand how ) is if the search function was just a bit more expansive......won't take a single letter & sometimes takes a word as a clip of a longer word.....that may help in finding info that's not Stickied ( Good deal on those items that are Stickied, BTW !!!)


 This is a grand place with a grand idea at it's core !!!!

"If you want it fancy there is BBQ spray paint at home depot for that. "
    Covered, damper-controlled cooking.....IF YOU PLEASE !!!

Being able to post YouTube videos rather than just a link would be great
I'm only 2 or 3 kettles away from being that creepy guy down the street with all the Webers

Can you provide a few search examples that could be improved?

I looked into the youtube thing once before and it poses a security risk.
However I'll look again - maybe it's something that we can open up to premium members or something.

Videos from OZ are more than a security risk - there are morality issues to consider.  :o ;)

Yeah, I'll see if I can figure a good way to describe things as I come up against them !!!!

Anyway to make it so that the "$" sign in subject titles won't break the link when you try to post a link to the thread?

I can be a PITA at times and I realize this.  I'm still baffled by the food pr0n being all lumped into one.  Here's my $.02
Before, there were the different catagories for recipes - beef, pork, chicken, dessert, etc...
How often do you look for a recipe compared to seeing a pr0n post and thinking "I can make that"?
What I'd rather see, is the pr0n broken down into catagories - beef, pork, chicken, fish, etc...
That way when someone feels like making beef - they don't have to wade through a ton of pr0n threads looking for a beef thread.

The recipe section is fine as there's only 107 topics.  But the Grilling & BBQ'ing is pretty much just another pr0n section and not much 'technique' talk.
I've always had gas...  And now a bunch of kettles because of this place.  Thanks!

 Agreed to a large extent.....

I try to put the sequenced things into "Grilling & BBQ"

and if it just comes out with juice dripping all over the place, that goes in "PRON"

Some folks have a great cook, end up in "Pron" & list the recipe too.......

Kind of a tough problem, that sort of interlocks with things I'm thinking about with the search function.......if it was slightly more involved, then maybe those step-by-steps & recipes could be delivered that way?

 Maybe we could start a PITA club, as sort of a sub-culture?

Gotta go......about to put up a pie in "Recipes".....I think..............

totally agree, there needs to be some changes in that area for sure.

YES!
this has been on a post-it note stuck to my whiteboard for a while now!
I'm glad i'm not the only one who has noticed!!
