As a Moderator, I look at around 1500 new posts a week. If I am going to do something with any post I look at, I have to do it when I first look at it. Otherwise, I may not be able to find it again later without spending an inordinate amount of time tracking it down. I use my best judgment on what I do with any given post. In the case of your post, I thought that it might get better viewer response in the pizzeria & restaurant review board because it is a smaller board with fewer threads than Chitchat and because it is related to pizza reviews only and not as open ended as Chitchat. It was just another judgment call on my part. I will be the first one to admit that I am not always perfect, but there are only two Moderators, Bill and I, and we look at close to 80,000 new posts a year, and trending higher, trying to make sure that they are all in the best or most proper places in the forum's indexing system. I used to send PMs to members whenever I moved one of their posts but the forum grew so large that I had to discontinue the practice simply because I couldn't devote the time needed to keep up with the increased volume. There are a lot of other things that I have had to change in the way I operate and moderate the forum because of the extraordinary growth of the forum.
I just finished spending over two hours tracking down and correcting dead links in over thirty posts so I had not yet seen the db Bistro Moderne in NYC thread you mentioned. Having now looked at that thread, I believe that it belongs in Chitchat because it does not relate to pizza. The Pizzeria & Restaurant Review board is intended to be for pizza reviews only, although it is possible that on occasion a post might end up there that doesn't belong. Sometimes I take a board and review the threads in the board to see if they all are in the right place. If not, I move them to more appropriate places.
Since you feel so strongly on the matter, I will move your thread back to the Chitchat board. I also invite you to tell me (preferably via a PM) which Neapolitan threads you think are in the wrong place. The Neapolitan board is one of the most problematic boards to moderate because members try to dump everything that smacks of Neapolitan in that board when they more appropriately belong in child boards. The Neapolitan Pizzamaking board is intended to cover pizza making, as in recipes and techniques. Sometimes there is overlap with pizzerias. In those cases, I have to make a judgment call, whether the post leans more toward pizzamaking or toward a pizzeria review. Sometimes the scale tips one way, and sometimes it tips the other way.
BTW, if there is anything that you or any other member feels strongly about in the way the forum is managed, feel free to send a PM to Steve.
