*insert imperial margerine theme music here*

It is the New, Less Broken, Absinthe Buyer's Guide! The Guide as it was always intended to be. What amazes me, after all these years, is that this part still really excites me shock.gif wub.gif censored2.gif devilgirl.gif w00t1.gif

d00d, check it out. Fully database driven, easily updatable by the editors, searchable (I have to fix that template, so pls excuse the ugly) G.U.I.D.E.! On the rightnav menu under the RED header you will find the review tool... for now that can be used and posted in the forum guide as per usual. Markus and I still need to make some edits and address presentation issues with the review tool, but I think you guys here have the hang of it already.

This has totally been a wet panty dream for me for ages. I'm really glad to finally bring it to fruition, with the help and estimable guidance of Oxy & Hartsmar! When re-entering reviews, Markus and I totally tag teamed it, he took Switzerland, I did France, etc... so if you find any errors or malfunctions please post or pm and we will be happy to address.

We're coming up on TEN years here at Fee Verte! So I think now is a good time to start celebrating!!! abs-cheers.gif

I thought I'd hold off for a time responding in this thread, to allow space for the flood of warm congratulations and grateful thanks from the members here to Kallisti for her dozens and dozens of hours of hard work that have finally come to fruition, with the release of this new - and incomparably superior - version of the Buyers Guide.

I thought there might also be a nod to Hartsmar, for his tremendous - and ongoing - contribution.

24 hours later, 65 views, but as far as posts go, nothing, nada, zip.

You guys are a tough crowd.

Yes, congratulations on completing it! I can understand the undertaking of making a database-driven review site. Up-to-date with the reviews on the forum, no less.

I hesitated in replying to this thread when I saw it, as it is under Administration category, otherwise I would have said this:

Kallisti, Hartsmar, Oxygenee: Thank You!

Kallisti: the Buyer's Guide looks just Great! Old reviews still there, separated from the new ones. Hartsmar, many thanks for all your work with the Reviews, and the review Tool! Oxy, the reorganization of the Forum makes it even more enjoyable to navigate through, new Timeline threads, Entrance Hall and everything!

What a lame excuse, I might as well go back to the Entrance Hall.



Good idea, I need a place to leave my overcoat, it was getting a bit warm already.

It is most beauteous!

But I saw it as an announcement and request for technical reports. I wouldn't presume to just bounce in and say LARS!.gif CONGRATULATIONS! LARS!.gif

Outstanding job Kallisti and all involved. It's coherent and very easy to find exactly what you're looking for, and the review tool is awesome.

Being the anal retentive prick that I am, I did find one error. Duplais Blanche is listed as being sold by LDF, but it is not listed on their website. Also, I may have missed this, but is it possible for one to sort absinthes by highest score in the Buyer's Guide? If not, that would be a great addition.

Thanks again for all your hard work! absintheglass-glow2.gif

I can tell a lot of work went into all that redesigning. Hats off to everyone involved!

Thank you so much! I love the new Buyer's Guide setup. I think Donnie's idea would be very helpful if it is possible. Either way, thank you for everything you've put into this site!

By the way, where did the Herbsaint listing go?

A great achievement! This is an indespensible service for the many new to absinthe looking for the best quality products as well as to the rest of us.

The link should be posted in as many appropriate places as possible.

I hadn't even noticed this thread or the New and Improved Buyer's Guide.
It really does look amazing. Grate werk!
