VegGuide.org Site News
May 23 11 - 10,000 Reviews
We just hit 10,000 reviews earlier today! Thanks to Lola for being the 10,000th, and thanks to everyone else who contributed.
Reviews are incredibly important in making this site useful. After all, just knowing a place exists is nice, but knowing whether it sucks or rules is so much better. Please take a moment and add a review today.

Oct 2 10 - Geolocation improvements

Mar 5 10 - VegIndiana and "mark this closed"
We've added yet another data feed from Mercy for Animals, this time for their VegIndiana site.
Also, the much-requested and much-needed "mark this place closed" feature has finally been added. Now, underneath the "Edit" button on each entry, you'll see a link to mark an entry as closed. This lets you tell us that a restaurant or other business is no longer around.
Feb 1 10 - Yet Another Redesign - VegGuide 3.5
It's not that I planned to redesign every two years, but that's about what I've been doing. I've been calling this VegGuide 3.5, since it's less of a radical change from the last design. I'm pretty happy with this one. It's simple, easy enough to maintain, and hopefully you all will find it more usable.
Next up in features-land will probably be things like improved search (really, "pizza in Minneapolis" should just work), and a mobile-friendly version of the site.

Dec 9 09 - New Front Page
As you might have noticed, the front page has undergone a big redesign. We've tried to get right to the point, cutting out text and boxes that weren't necessary.
If you're missing the old lists of recent entries and reviews, there's an alternate front page available too. Just update your bookmarks.
Sep 30 09 - What's Nearby on the Home Page
You might have noticed already, but we now show you nearby restaurants on the front page. Thanks to MaxMind for providing the Geolocation database we use for this feature.
