I wasn’t the one who named the new thread of suggested a name for the new thread. I would’ve assumed that they would’ve called it “Farmer’s Markets in the SFV?” (and you could’ve asked them to rename it as such)
I wouldn’t know b/c, when threads get long and unwieldly, my eyes glaze over, and I stop reading. Especially since, as the person who was responsible for nearly every single DoTM thread, my automatically sent tracking information every time someone has a “thought & question” and posts in any DoTM thread (well, any that I started, which was a lot). I guess I could turn off tracking for each of them manually (I already long ago turned off e-mail notification b/c it was totally overwhelming)…
The other thing is that, as threads get longer, it gets harder to find specific data in the thread b/c the search function in a single thread isn’t that great (at least, AFAIK). The search function within a single thread actually stinks (IMHO). I’ve been trying for weeks to find the name of a Santa Monica bakery that I think @bulavinaka had mentioned awhile ago and have been unsuccessful. But maybe I’m not using the right search terms.
So, for you, you only get notifications (presumably) when someone posts a response to your direct question; that’s not the case for me. I probably would not have asked the mods to change to a new post, if I hadn’t been automatically tracked on the post.
Also, I don’t recall what your original question was in that thread, but was it about finding fruits in FMs in the SFV, or was the actual text asking more broadly about FM (even if that’s not necessarily what you had intended)? They do sell other things besides fruits and vegetables at the Farmer’s Markets, and that might be interesting to other posters. I personally would not necessarily read every new post in the Fruit thread (and thus would’ve missed your question and every response, had I not been automatically tracking), but I would’ve read a new thread about FM’s in the SFV.
Just my $0.02.
If you’re that upset about it, why don’t you simply repost your question in the fruits thread? I won’t ask for the mods to re-locate it, and I doubt they would do so, based on your feedback.
