Now that the "Bean to bar makers
" thread is locked we need a place to post about the TCL Chocolate Makers Database
. (BTW, the hyperlink on the database tells people to post updates on the locked thread too, so that needs to be changed.)
I'm enthusiastic about this database and I'd love for it to become the authoritative source for information. Many more entries need to be added, though.
I'd also like to suggest that all TCL members be given access to updating, adding to, and deleting from the records. As it now stands once a record is entered I can't go back and make any corrections. I have to go somewhere like this forum, and ask someone (Clay I guess) to make and additions or deletions. This is very cumbersome and a waste of time for all involved. I'm afraid that it will inhibit people from adding more information.
Case in point... I just added the entry for Debelis but I've already found a better website.
. So what would be very simple for me to change now becomes very tedious. Anyway, O Powers That Be, please change the website to this one. (BTW, I also entered an incorrect email address when I made a typo, but I can't change that now either.)
The database currently also has other limitations, but I'm very glad that at least it can now be printed.
