Will the current gathering threads in WoWW be moved to this fancy (and long overdue) tab?

Not at this time. It's something we'd like to do, but it would involve some database work, which can get a bit hinky. (And it's something we have to kidnap a developer for, and our bail budget is already spent for the month.)

It was a choice of tab now or wait much longer to get the threads moved.

What I can do if you want, is add a big graphic to the first and last post of active threads that links them to a new thread here. Then I can lock the old thread. It will slowly drift off the first page the way.

If you're ok with this approach, the thread owners can create new threads with all the info and then PM me the link for the old thread to close and the new thread to link to.

Eh. I think we can just add the new gatherings tabs here and keep the old ones where they are. Any other opinions?

Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

To me, this is what makes this community so unique it will never be matched.

I think that we can post an index to past threads that can tie in the old gatherings. And move forward. This was a good decision. We have code changes at work that are waiting for more than 5 years and still not implemented. The problem -- we wanted at least three years of history to use the new info. Clearly, if we implemented and waited, we would be all set now.

Bacon is awesome. I suppose one could debate whether that's fact or opinion.

yikes, there's been a server error

I also never get a chance to put in a title because it errors out as soon as I click the first link for a topic no later

Done. It worked fine for me. Re-created the Past Gatherings thread.

It appears to work now (at least it gets me to the correct page). I'll post my thread after dinner.

Nice! that's is exactly what the chef paired at the Tercero winemaker dinner a few weeks ago..although I don't recall what vintage.

i know a developer who's a whiz with databases who may be willing to give up a few evenings to handle it...

I saw HitAnyKey42 on wine.woot! and clicked "I want one!"

Laughs. It was meant to be a lighthearted jab back at Ducky for inviting himself to dinner ;-).

Actually had that meal a couple weeks ago and it was amazing. Don't believe the recipes that say Duck confit takes 8-12 hours. I had it quite tasty in 2-3. And the duck fat you have leftover at the end is AMAZING.

Tonight was Hawaiian BBQ takeout... Not nearly so exciting. Wasn't lying about the tenderloin though. Much better tonight on night 2.
